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 anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
If you think the pre op sucks wait till you see the shit you gotta try and choke down post op. As for the thing passing, well they say the same thing about gall stones. LOL.
FYI, it ain't always easy but it is definately worth it..
Good luck, hang in there and watch your big body melt away..
I'm in the last 2 days of pre-op, all.
Couldn't agree with you more it sucks like few other things I've ever encountered! The first 4 days were the hardest for me I had severe headaches from the hunger, and was often nauseous. It got better after that, once I found the right balance between protein shakes, broth, and SF jello..
Word of warning don't be surprised if, even if you follow the Medifast diet to a T, that every few mornings you actually appear to gain (!) a pound or two. My doc says it's just the water weight shifting, and it did come right back off a couple of days later..
I've lost 18.2 lbs in 12 days, but there were LOTS of rocky moments in there. As the other folks are telling you keep with it, it'll work out, and it'll be SOOOO worth it in the end. See ya on the Loser's Bench soon!..
This is EXACTLY why I tell people that waiting to the last minute to start cutting down their caloric intake, and purging sugars and fats from their bodies is wrong. cause when you do, and then hit the.
, you end up so hungry you think you are gonna die....
Starting to get a grip on all those bad habits pre-op is the only way to do this without all the anguish....
If you are getting all the protein you should be,..mine was 90 to 120 grams per day...you will NOT be physically hungry...your head may want to eat...but your body will absolutely not be hungry....
I lost 22 pounds in 14 days on my.
...was it fun...well no...did it work...well yeah...am I sorry I did this? HELL NO>>>.
Think about what it is you really want...then ask yourself if that piece of "whatever" is really worth it to you....
I have been on the liver reduction Medifast diet for 3 months now. I am so sick of meat and veggies, and trying to figure out something different to eat, that I am looking forward to the.
...lol I am sure this will change when it actually does happen though. My surgeon said 2 day.
Pre-op. Hmmmm.....Guess I will do whatever they tell me to do, to make it easier on myself. Hang in there and keep focusing on the prize!..
Kelly, in my experience that first week was head hunger (and was the worst of it). It got better, eventually, I have gotten to the point where I am not head nor stomach hungry..
Still, I would love to fulfill a craving, but I am moving beyond that one day at a time. I.
The same happens for you where you just think about the liquid as fuel/nutrition..
But, no doubt, it is crappy in the midst of it...
I start the.
Monday and only have to be on it 3 days...I don't know how I would have done on anything longer...glad I didn't have to find out. Good luck..
The pre-op Medifast diet was challenging nonetheless but it certainly does prepare us for what is about to come. Remember that this is not only to.
But for the safety of this procedure. I am almost 2 weeks out and I would do it again in a heartbeat, I found it challenging especially when I had to prepare dinner for my husband and 4 year old but during this time it did teach me about discipline, self-control, and respect for myself. It also made it easy for me to plan my day. The key to the.
Is being creative. Try different recipes that will not bore your taste buds. This is not a Medifast diet but a lifestyle change and if I had to compromise my tastebuds there would be no way I would be able to adhere to this. Try to find a happy medium that works for you and you will get through this..
In life there are two roads to take. One is hard and the other is easy. Taking the easy road and the only reward is that is easy..
You will do great. Have.
And stay compliant..
