Got a question, hope someone can answer... Does anyone have any child-friendly tofu or seitan Medifast recipes? Looking forward for any comment. Another question I got... Hey everyone! I haven't been around for awhile so I thought I would update you on my progress. I am now 2 months post op. I weighed myself on Monday and had lost 53 lbs since.

Surgery.

Woohoo! I have had to throw out several items of clothing already that don't fit. Which by the way is the FUNNEST THING EVER! I have been really good about staying away from anything with sugar in it AND I think I have broken my addiction to.

Caffeine.

Those are my big positives in this process..

However, the length of my recovery has been longer than I anticipated and I have run into some obstacles that I was just not prepared for. I struggled with lethargy and fatigue until about 2 weeks ago. The biggest issue is the lack of appetite. When I do eat, NOTHING tastes good. I find that I have to choke everything down, including those nasty protein drinks. As a result, I am truly struggling to get enough protein and nutrients.

I am ashamed to admit that I have even gone a few days without eating anything and it was easy. When I do think about eating I seem to crave foods that are no longer options for me like enchiladas or homemade macaroni and cheese (but I don't eat them). Does anyone else struggle with this lack of appetite and nothing tasting good?.

I have finally started to.

Exercise.

On a more regular basis. At this point I am just.

Walking.

, but I walk anywhere from 1-4 miles 3-4 times a week. For me, that is a HUGE improvement. It is getting easier to walk faster and my joints are hurting less and less every time. My feet, which used to hurt terribly when I walked long distances, NO LONGER HURT! I also don't have swelling in my ankles anymore! Woohoo and Praise God!.

So that is my story...How is everyone else doing???..

You betcha! but... you might wanna make sure and wait for another member to confirm my answer as I am not completely sure. Better yet, why don't you contact the Medifast guys because they can answer you better...

I tried crackers. I had my first dumping syndrome with them. THAT SUCKED!!! But your suggestion is a good one. Now if I can find something tolerable that is within the guidelines.....

Comment #2

You will eventually start liking things again.. have you tried the greek yogurts? I practically live on those things..

Congrats on getting active, it's not easy, but in a few months you will marvel at what you're able to do compared to now or a couple of months ago. Enjoy it!!.

I am having the same problem as far as Medifast food goes...I don't want it anymore. I feel like I could go from now on and never eat again. My daughter stays on me alot about eating. When she gets home that is the first thing she asks me "what have you eat today". I don't get hungry. I feel like I am on auto pilot...drink protein...eat ice...drink protein...eat ice and so on.

Everyone keeps telling me it will get better. I'm waiting. I didn't really like to eat before the.

Surgery.

Though..

I set out my Medifast food for the day, in a little fridge by my chair. It is all written down and I check off what I have eaten..

It is sometimes like a chore list, but I know it all has to go in, so it is easier to keep track of, and not end up at 5pm with too much to eat. Scheduling will help you develop a normal eating pattern again....

Check out my post on WLS and depression. It is something to address as soon as we are aware of it, and that also applies to unhealthy behaviors of eating. The sooner you know, the less impact it has on your new way of life!.

It gets better!..

Ginglebell compared to some of the crap posted here lately this is just a wonderful story. I hate all this psycho babel bulshit! Just do it and shut the fuck up..

To much introspection and not enough sitting on your hand and.

Just doing the program..

FYI you are soley responsible for every decision you make..

I'll give this dump a break for a while after all the shit posted recently..

Feel lucky to be me!..

I have to say that I am feeling the same way. My.

Surgery.

Was on October 20th. There are days that I actually have to force myself to eat. At first I thought it was a blessing. I think about it now and think this can't be good. I am also having issues with exhaustion and fatigue. I am lucky to get all my protein and maybe 1 bottle of water a day.

It's great that you are.

Walking.

Though. I started.

Walking.

Yesterday, only about a 1/4 mile but it was more than I am used to doing...

Wow Lucifer. I certainly didn't mean to put you off...

Comment #9

No no no Ging, he didn't mean it like that. I thought so too til I re-read what he was saying then I understood and agree completely. He wasn't being mean towards you or anything.. re-read it, trust me. :).

Hi...I relate to everything you said. I had my.

Surgery.

On Aug. 25 alittle over 2 months ago. I've lost about the same amount of weight. I don't really care for Medifast food either. I, finally, found a protein shake that I make that I truly look forward to having. I mix 1 scoop of Expresso Whey (that I found the link on Eggface's site), 1 packet of Instant Carnation (Sugar Free) Breakfast, 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of ice, and 1 tsp.

This is so good. I've also changed the flavor of Instant Breakfast to Vanilla and Strawberry and added frozen fruit in the blender. There is approx. 30 grams of protein in this and lots of fiber and vitamin-rich..

I am exercising too, at the gym, and this is a huge change for me..

You're not alone..

I know the "head hunger" is crazy. I find it histerical that I want to eat like I used to and really can't. It's okay, though, I have to learn this new way. I have to find something else that is better for me to get my through life...not Medifast food or any other bad addiction..

Hang in there! If there is anything else I can talk you through...let me know!!!..

Comment #12

That hating Medifast food doesn't last forever....I had a piece of Turkey the other day with some gravy...and honestly it was the best thing I had eaten in a long time....LOL I do know that some some foods like shrimp for me is so hard to eat that I just.

Leave.

It alone......and you're find those foods that you just can't stand right now....but maybe in time it will be ok again,......Just don't go all day without anything,,,that's just plain wrong and can be very hurtful to your body...

Comment #13

I would HAVE to agree this part of the GBS is NNOOTT fun. I almost never want to eat, and I am feeling a little sad, did anybody else for a moment wish you did not have it done?..

Comment #14

I know what you are.

Talking.

About, but my apprehension with eating is the gas. I became lactose intolerant and am still.

Learning.

To read the labels even after a month. Try Buddig Honey Roasted Turkey. I don't know why but on days I have trouble, that seems to be easy eat & tastes good...

Comment #15

Eat the insides of home made enchiladas w/o the rice. Yummy!! Crave something and then find out how to make it compatible with your tummy. :) No starving allowed...

Comment #16

I am 5 months out and still struggling with food, I am seldom hungry and have to force myself to eat most of the time, I don't get ill from Medifast food just not interested in it anymore. I love warm liquids so I use tasteless protein in all my hot teas, hot chocolate, decaf.

Coffee.

If it wasn't for the powder I wouldn't be getting my protein in. I think this will get better in time or so they say...

Comment #17

I am a little over 4 months out and I must say I didnt really start wanting Medifast food until this past month.Most of the time it's head hunger too. But you shouldnt go all day without anything at least drink your protein shakes and get plenty of fluids..

Comment #18

Someone recommended Protica protein shots that you can get at their website (www.protica.com)...20-25 grams of protein in 1-3 ounce sizes. So, really small amount of liquid but lots of protein. Also I have heard so many rave review about Syntrax Nectar protein powder. They have many flavors and it's supposed to be so good you can eat it straight and love it. Maybe you could try one of these products. I think Joma was good in recommending to at least get your protein and plenty of fluid in. Good luck!..

Comment #19

The first 10 months I could easily have missed meals but since then, my appetite and taste buds WOKE UP and now I can eat almost anything just WAY smaller portions. It is important to get your protein, water, vitamins and.

Exercise.

In....I can't even tell you what my surgeons would have said or done to me if I said I skipped meals...I contibute my consistent weight loss on getting in my protein and water every day. The minute I didn't, my weight loss would slow down. Starving yourself is not the key to sucessful weight loss. Talk to your surgeon or nutritionist about options. Please take care of yourself or you could regret it later down the road...
