Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably can answer it..
Also, I have tried light grapefruit juice. There's a bunch of different varieties by Ocean Spray...
If you are allowed juice... I was too... had.
In one of the hottest summers so those first few weeks I drank it cut with water... 50% water, 50% juice. I rarely drink the stuff now... occasionally I'll get an orange or apple cider urge and do a few sips but hard to justify liquid cals..
I stick to Water with or without (mostly with) my peach.
Sticks in them or lemon/lime wedges.
(Iced & Hot).
Iced Tea Lattes.
Tropicana 50 orange juice.
Mott's tott's applejuice, and fruit punch...has half the calories and way less sugar.
Plum Smart Lite..this is great for the digestive system also, and has allowed me to have a bm every morning this week, instead of the normal 4 or 5 days...doesn't take much either. the serving is 8 ounces, but I just do half.....
I love sober drinks, 0 calories! I also drink hot chocolate from.
They have alot of good protein drinks...
Motts Tots is definatly a good one. Juicy Juice also has one thats called "all natural" with very little sugars. ERverything is really trial and error, but personally as long as it's 100% jusice with no nasty added sugars I am fine. The natural sugars don't bother me at all. Read the labels and try in small amounts :)..
For me the idea of the sugar free chemicals for the rest of my life is crazy. Toxic waste! So I asked my nut about what I could use instead of crystal lite, etc. She told me that 1/2 juice 1/2 water was ok. tried that pre-op... not really good so she said I could do 1/2 Gatorade 1/2 water. For awhile this will work for me.
I know it's got it's limitations cause of the coloring and such but if I had to just drink water all day every day I would lose it for sure! Love water but since.
My tongue seems to be coated with something resembling chalk and wall paint combined, so water kinda tastes like dust! lol...
My dr and nut said for me besides water and chrystal light was fruit20 and caffine free tea. I love that. also SF ice pops and vitamin water zero cause there isn't any sugar...
I as well have had a lot of complications with nausea and vomitting and got a ulcer, after 3 weeks post op I am finally at some relief and I have a shaved ice machine that I put 1 cup of shaved ice to 1 cup or 8 oz of Crystal Light or juice whatever liquid that I am drinking and it makes a nice refreshing treat, we have to be creative or the fluids get old. You can count the shaved ice also as 1/2 the ozs so I count 1 cup of ice as 4 ozs of liquid as well. Good luck I.
That this helps you out...
