Yup, but... you might wanna make sure and wait for another person here to confirm this as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you email the Medifast guys because they can give you help better...
I remember in 8th grade Home Ec class we did a unit on health/fitness and it all started with everyone in the class being weighed....sigh. I was not the heaviest, at that time dealt with about 20 extra lbs, but when so many were twig size, I felt large. I think it was around that time that I started consciously dieting, watching the carbs, eating protein, veggies and fruits. I'd do well, lose maybe half and then resume pizza and ice cream and my beloved cookies. LOL.
I probably gained and lost that 20# all through high.
A dozen times. At one point a family Dr. suggested Medifast diet pills. My mom, a nurse , was not in favor, but knowing our family and grandparents had struggled with weight she agreed to a 30 day trial. I was jittery and not getting enough.
, so quickly end that swearing I'd never go that route again..
My thinnest was in college. Lots of.
, and even though lots of snacking too, I was at a huge campus (Ohio State), and you walked a mile just to some classes. Got plenty of exercising in. Somewhere my last year I ballooned up 60#, after a breakup with a guy I thought I might marry one day. I lived on M and M's and other things I shouldn't have eaten. Met my husband some months later, and we married a year later. I'd dropped a hand ful of pounds but joined.
Shortly after our marriage. Lost the 60# and kept it off for 5 years. Even worked as a leader with them, and later an area director..
Gained the weight back slowly after infertility struggles, then the birth of our first child. Lost all but 20 lbs again of that extra weight and tried this and that, always going back to WW. Probably for some of us is that WW still doesn't address a low carb menu, though you do have the option to be restrictive...few choose it. Still, I feel it's a good program, even to this day, for many..
In between and over the years, I've also been on Dr. Spillman's water Medifast diet (think that was his name), where you drank tons of water to fool yourself into being full.I did a meat and veggie only diet, lost weight, but couldn't sustain it, not understanding I needed to find substitutes for those simple carbs I craved, Did a.
For a few weeks, but like to chew my foods, so that went by the way side quickly..
So these and other diets I tried. Always tried to be more health conscious and have basically eaten well, just too much, and too many sweets especially. Eating now as close to NO sugar as possible, except in fruitsand veggies. Time and effort and.
Have made that all much easier these days..
So I had said NO to GBS for several years, just KNOWING I could figure this out. Saw a nutritionist, a couple times, saw my family doc and each time picked up a few helpful tips, but never enough. So finally felt as I was approaching my 52nd year,. I needed to at least look into this. There was also an issue of diabetes for me, and to learn this.
Could clear that up? That was the deciding factor for me..
Sorry this has become a novel. Not a short answer at all but the road to losing weight has been long for me and this.
Has been a gift and a tool that makes me feel I'm working less hard for better results..
If it was out there I tried it..
, Phen phen, Atkins, South Beach, Medifast diet Center etc, etc, etc. I lost a 100lbs on a couple of the diets and when I stopped gained it all back and then some. When GBS was suggested to me over 5 years ago I looked at my doctor like she had 3 heads. I said are you kidding me that.
Is so dangerous. No thank you, but in the back of my mind I thought not me I'd be their first failure story. Then I was told by one of my doctors that I was 1 point shy of being classified a diabetic and would need to take medication. I then ran all the way to the GBS center. Had the.
, did the nutrition classes and I am doing very well weight wise. I have to date lost 178 lbs and have kept it off with no weight gain for about a 1 1/2 years. I will be 3 years out in March. This.
Is a great tool. It does require some work, but you will see in the end it is all worth it..
This helps answer your question...
Well honestly...and obvisouly..none of them worked or I wouldnot have needed.
! :) BUT the most success I had was on.
And I was most successful when I did it with a group. Like at work. I have also done South Beach, taken Meridian, Slimfast, Dexitrim, the list goes on and on...
YOU NAME IT - I DID IT. I MUST ADMIT - THE LAST FEW YEARS I WOULD GO TO A '.
' OR '.
' WITH NO REAL BELIEF THAT ANY OF IT WOULD WORK. IT DIDN'TI HAVE HAD ENOUGH PLAYING AROUND. I AM STILL YOUNG AND WANT MY LIFE BACK - I AM TIRED OF LUGGING AROUND A 100 POUND BAG ON MY BACK I TRIED TO PICK UP MY SON THE OTHER DAY AND WAS STUNNED TO REALIZE THAT I HAVE TO LOSE HIS WHOLE BODY WEIGHT. NO WONDER I'M SO OUT OF BREATH AND GO UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS ONE LEG AT A TIME.......
