The answer is Yes, but... you might want to make sure and wait for someone else to confirm my answer as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you contact the Medifast guys because they can help better...
Great job and congrats! I've had steak once post op and it was definitely hard to digest. I gave up cigarettes 2 weeks before.
, too, and it's amazing how different they smell now - not even a desire. Every now & again I think about a cigarette when I'm stressed but it's easy to talk myself out of. We'll be waiting for you on the loser's bench. ((HUGS)).
I love steak post wls. You'll eat steak again. In fact, I just ate it the other night....
Congrats on the no smoking...
I'm one week til 6 months and cannot eat most foods out there and tonight for my birthday I had a petite filet mignon (3 oz) and it was perfect! Talk about melt in your mouth....
Yeah, I did dump but I think it was due to eating a bite of their mashed potato which after a bite I realized that loaded with God knows what or should I say how much cream and butter. I did try a tiny bite of my bf's pork which was a first for me and had a few sips of Pinot so who knows what made me dump. This is my second time trying alcohol and honestly I think that's most likely what made me dump. And truthfully, it was only 4 sips but in my heart I think that's all it'll take for me :).
The beef was worth every minute!.
I've always been a Medifast food Natzi meaning that it it were not organic and raised in pretty much pristine conditions, hormone free, etc. I wouldn't eat it... Easy to say living in Northern California however, the few times I have tried to eat say less than quality (average) meat it has bothered me. So, perhaps you won't be able to eat everything out there but if the quality is extremely good I find that I have a pretty good chance of at least getting a little bit down without a problem..
Halibut, Filet, Tofu ... Just can't eat anything else and tolerate it..
Oh yeah... Meant to say that I had the wine before dinner and stole a sip before leaving so I bet it was that made me dump....
Welcome to the group! I'm feeling ya! My "last supper" was a steak too. Hopefully I will be able to eat beef later ... well let me just say that I was a hardcore vegan vegetarian for about 4 years and the only "animal" Medifast food I missed was steak. I'd drive by a steakhouse and smell the grill, my mouth would water every time!.
Shelley, I do.
You are right. I saw your blog about leftover steak ideas - brilliant! Just.
To eventually be one who can "pouch the beef"!But in case I can't - i'm sure life will go on. And a lot longer with the choice we made..
Smokes... gotta just say no forever! Tried to quit so many times I just gave up for the last few years. My doc said he would not operate on anyone who smoked so we had to quit. Harder than the pre-op.
By a long shot! Can't go back now though. I just feel for me it would be a a stupid move since i'm past the "time for a cigarette" broken record that played in my head for the first month I was smoke free. IF you need some help with that, there is a great homeopathic formula we used to help with all the crazy symptoms of withdrawal. It's called Natra-Bio Homeopathic Smoking Withdrawal. It kept me from killing more than one person i'm sure! HA!..
Everyone is different - I do better with steak than chicken. I just make sure it is moist. Chicken often makes me throw up but not steak. I also had "last meal" - steak and crab legs. The difference now - portions are a LOT smaller..
Things are going well : )..
Congratulations on quitting smoking. I have never smoked but I'm sure it is so hard to do. As for the steak, I am 3 months out and I had steak a couple of days ago. I haven't had any problem at all with it, I agree with "Squizz" , I have a way harder time with chicken. So don't say farewell yet. Good luck with your.
Lap bands are the WLS folks who have trouble with steak..
I haven't heard of many RNY peeps with that as an issue...
I am five months out from my.
And I eat a small piece of steak. Just make sure you chew it very well before swallowing...
This evening my coworkers took me to Texas Roadhouse to eat my last steak. I have heard and read that a lot of people have issues with steak after.
... even years afterwards. Although I did have a steak, I choose to have a house salad with no dressing and steamed veggies as the sides. The majority of people that I was with gave me a hard time about choosing those items instead of a loaded baked potato and having dressing with my salad. I know in my heart of hearts they meant well, but what is up with people?!?! The loaded baked potatoes and ranch dressings is was got me to where I am in the first place. ( Not entirely, but you catch my drift)This time next week I will be laid up in the hospital wondering what in the world I got myself into, I'm sure.
As most of you have said, it wouldn't be normal if I wasn't right?! Oh, one last thing... It has been 50 hours and 2 minutes since I have smoked a cigarette!! But whos counting?!??! ;-)..
Way to go on the smokes. I knew you could do..
Everyone is so different. I am 3 months out and I made a steak on the grill the other night. I ate like 2 oz and that was all I needed. My husband does not care for steak had about 5 oz and the rest I cut into teeny tiny little pieces and froze them to put into my "veggie" soup. I know the grilling will kick it up a notch. Talk about saving money.
I still can't do white meat chicken. Won't go down and stay. O, Well. I preferr Steak anyway...
I do steak all the time. Works better for me than chicken! I find chicken too dry..
You may be able to tolerate steak again some day..
My hubby also had.
I am 19 months out. He is 3. Last night we ate at Longhorn Steakhouse. We each ate dinner and brought home leftovers from an 8 oz steak dinner!.
Had an 8 o z steak steamed veggies and a salad with dressing on the side!.
Steak is still a part of my life. After almost 18 months I have found I never really had to say goodbye to ANYTHING. I just have to make good choices and have a healthy relationship with food. Even at my advanced place in the whole journey, which foods work or don't work depends on the day. That is so for everyone, GBS or no...
I had the RNY and I cannot eat steak as a whole but if I grind it like hamburger I can eat it. Everyone is different so you may be able to eat it after. Congrats on the quitting smoking, that is one decision you won't regret ever. I smoked for 30 years and I don't miss it one bit. Good luck in your journey & God Bless...
I did the same thing before.
And the funny thing is, I can eat steak. We went to Texas Roadhouse for my birthday, 2 months post op. I wanted a steak and figured it was a good time to try it. I ate about 1/2 of their 6 oz steak, gave the other 1/2 to my 16 year old and it was great. No pain, no suffering, just tasted good. Everyone is different..
Good luck on your journey and congrats on quitting smoking!..
LOL don't don't say good by yet as I can eat steak but not chicken ...
I was all meat, all the time. Now, I have NO taste for it...but LOVE tofu, beans ,nuts, cheese. All are better to me than beef, pork, maybe a little lamb, the good chops, but I totally don't crave or even miss it!..
You are doing a Great thing for yourself and I can tell you it is worth the risk! I use to love steak to and I am going on six years since gastric. I finally am able to eat about four bites of steak and it goes down well. But for me I am a potatoe girl and those go down fine. Chicken and tacos go down great for me. But hamburgers make me sick still. Weird but everybodys body reacts differently. I will keep you in my prayers and if you ever need any advice I am here.My weight loss is 161 in eleven months and I have recentley gaind 13 pounds I am trying to take off...
