Good question... I dunno what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
I think it depends on what kind of snack packs. Some are high in sugar and fat, so you might want to.
Those, they are just empty calories. I have the almond snack packs. Just like anything, check the label..
I remember hearing that decaf counts towards fluid...
I would assume that takeabow is right and that a lot of those 100 cal packs are just sugar and fat... You can get pecan sandies in a 100 cal pack... doesn't mean they are good for you, just keeps your snack somewhat low calorie..
I don't like.
So I have nothing to share on that one sorry!..
Snack packs should be avoided because they are considered slider foods. Which means those 100 calories just slide right out of your pouch because of the way they break right down, it's a texture thing. We are encouraged to choose denser protein options so that we can feel full and stay full longer to prevent hunger. Like meats, cheeses, veggies, protein bars. This is all related to not having a valve on the bottom of your pouch. If we are eating a lot of slider foods during the day, it is very easy to overeat calories and that leads to plateaus and weight gains..
I was told that because of the dierutic nature of.
Its not counted as fluid. Meaning it doesn't hydrate you, it actually can make you dehydrated, so therefore should be no more than 20% of what you intake in fluid per day...
I eat the 100 calorie packs of Almonds. :D I.
All the cracker, cookie, chips, etc..
100 cal snack pack... are snack foods. You should be focusing on things that are more nutritious and low fat. As my quack told me.
From Cookies, chips, popcorn, pretzels, and soda. That pretty much eliminates the snack pack..
Fluid could be counted if it is caffiene free and sugar free. But remember we still need water to flush system...
The 100 calorie packs are bad for you probably because they have too many grams of sugar in them. As far as decaf.
I believe it does count towards your fluids, but most of your fluids should come from straight water. I am so burnt out on water..LOL..
This helps out. Just check the sugar on the snack packs and if there is more than 5 grams then put them back..
My GBP team told me that.
Does count toward your daily fluid count, but make sure that half of the fluid is water. At least that's what they told me. I.
It helps. I don't eat the 100 calorie packs yet, so I can't answer that...
I agree with the others most of them are high in sugar and should be avoided but personally for me I do like to have the 100 cal kraft cheese cubes. Thay are delisious!..
Isn't a diuretic, so I would count it. As for being burnt out on water, I found that I love Glaceau's Vitaminwater Zero. I like the Acai-blueberry-pomegranate - it tastes a little like swedish fish candy to me...
