That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
I'm on a 1200 cal preop diet. I eat lots of vegetables and chicken and fish. I also enjoy avacado and Hummus. And LIght and Fit yogurt is quite tasty. I usually mix and match protein and veggies so that I don't get bored. I also use the Calorie King to count my cals.
That it goes well this weekend :)..
Veggies and meats, I found this sight to be helpful, Fat Secret, a lot of recipes, and calories included. Soups is a good choice...
I can't believe how lucky everybody is...1500 hundred calories pre-op...dang...that would be so easy to do.....
Just study up purple....you can do this, and never ever be hungry...you gotta do your homework, but I promise you, there are tons of options to choose from....
I did 1300 calories the first 6 months of my pre-op then dropped to 100, then finally went down to somewhere between 800 and 1000..
These last few weeks were not the greatest in getting everything I needed protein wise, which was my biggest factor in going ahead and starting my.
Early... I just figured health wise I would be doing myself a favor, by starting early. I sure do feel fuller, maybe even too full for a while after I have a shake, cause I am just not use to having so much protein in a day..(90 to 120 grams per day).
But the sooner you get into good habits...the better off you are...waiting til the last minute is the dumbest idea on the planet....
When you make the decision to go this route...you must be grown enought to accept everything that it entails...that means changing all those bad habits that led you down this road in the first place...if you are not ready to do this...you need not waste your money or your surgeons time...let him work with someone else, who is ready. I am not speaking of you directly...just saying in general... too many people step up and say...me, me ,me...when in fact...they are just blowing smoke...when you step in this direction...you better be ready to take action with YOUR actions....not just words spilling out of your gums...
This is a great time to start portraying habits that will enhance your lifestyle. Start practicing the habits that you will need after.
Such as drinking 30 minutes before and after meals. Prepare your body to start ridding itself of toxins by drinking plenty of water. Choose foods that are high in protein (granted that your nutritionist says it's ok). Start taking vitamins if you don't already. This is a perfect time to also get in the habit of measuring food, weighing food, basically.
Sounds like an easy way to get rid of weight it is not ideal. The.
Introduced in the bariatric program is to simply shrink the liver prior to.
And to also clean the intestines (not being able to have a bowel movement) to promote a facilitated healing after.
We need Medifast food for it's nutrients and to.
When consumed in moderation. We'll get there together hun. Be patient and good to yourself and everything will fall in to place..
Best Wishes on Your Journey..
Wow, I would have loved 1500 cal... my doc ordered 800 calories consisting of protein shakes and salads... UGH!..
No Carbs! At least that's what my pre.
Diet required. I just ate meat and veggies and fruit...
Fruits are carbs...and loaded with sugar so limit these....juice is the same...raisins for example...one ounce box...33 grams of carbs...most low carb diets are 100 grams of carbs a day...do you want to use a third of your carbs for the day on one ounce of raisins?.
Bananas are also a nono....
OMG I have missed bananas...not had one in a year...after.
I can have them again.
But they are loaded with sugar..albeit natural sugar, in the pre-op world, it all counts. If you are seriously trying to get the weight off, you look at the whole picture for what it is..
You stick to meats that are not red, and veggies that are starchy, that means no potatoes, of any kind, no corn, no rice, no peas...yeah, peasare a starchy veggie, who would have ever thought that, right. no pasta. no soda ... no grains except 100% whole wheat and they better be limited to no more than 2 slices a day. Natues own has a simply marvelous, 9 grain, out now that is 35 calories a slice and is high fiber, but has the texture of white bread, and stays fresh for about ten days. I am getting it at walmart so it is easy to find.
If I am using it, chances are it came from walmart..~~giggle~~~ poor girl macy's~~~~ha ha ha ha~~..
You are lucky. Mine is rpretty much broth sugarfree stuff (I hate sugar anything) Its hard but.
Is next Wednesday and I really want to cancel it every other hour...
