That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
Just try to take your time you start to get to excited about how good it tastes thenyou end up eating to fast and next thing you know it's all comming back up so just be careful did you try cream soups minus the chunks..
Chili's are one of my "go to foods" even at almost 3 months post op. You pretty much can't go wrong with making homemade chili, and like Less I put mine in the crock pot on low before I.
For work and by the time I get home it's perfect..
Turkey Chili: Ground turkey, kidney beans, pinto beans, onion, cumin, chili powder, and some water.
Today I made White Chicken Chili from.
And just had some for dinner with a little cheddar cheese sprinkled on top and a spoon of greek yogurt (tasted like sour cream)..
I took baby spoon-sized bites, placed the spoon down between bites, chewed 20+ times, and swallowed slowly. Because it tastes so good, I let each bite linger. As excited as I was to have something delicious, I am still scared of throwing up this soon after.
I am going to try the white chili, and the bean and bacon soup! Thanks!..
Slow down with the goal achievement, Mr. Overachiever-Davis -.
Some challenges for us! J/k, of course, I am so happy you are working through your recovery and life in a way and at a speed that makes you happy..
Congrats Steve! This phase really helps us feel somewhat normal again...
I heard...not sure if it's true (dont yell at me!!) lol That Wendy's Chili is okay a few months out. That it's actually decent for us. Please, someone way more skilled at searching the internet, do tell me this isnt a myth???? lol..
Karamia, Wendy's chili is my go to Medifast food when I'm on the road for my job. Justbe sure to get the small size! I also love to make it at home. Also, steve, I pureed pureed meatballs and put them into refried beans for a yummy meal. Cheese on top of course. Those first few real foods do taste sooo good!!..
I can complete relate to you. Being only 2 weeks out I am not on the blended diet. Black bean soup has been my go to food. I also have tried the corned beef hash with lowfat cheese and to add a bit of moisture I top it off with Fage greek yogurt (sour cream) and not only is it filling but packs quite a punch in the protein department. I was petrified of eating b/c of the whole concept of throwing up. My stomach is still sore and can only imagine what would happen if something was to come back up.
Im just grateful to my doctor's for their after plan b/c they have made this transition for me very pleasant and easy to adhere to..
Lowfat cottage cheese (1/2c) is also a good choice. 12g of protein..
Gout started acting up, so I spoke to the RN in the surgeon's office. While she checked with him about which meds I could take, she played 20 questions about my post-op condition. I mentioned being a cowardly bastard about trying semi-solid foods, she recommended I try something like chili, after being run through a Medifast food processor..
1oz of mama's black bean chili went down easily and stayed there. It tasted so good..
Knowing I can now dabble with semi-solid foods, my future doesn't look bleak at all, at all...
I meant to say I am now on the blended diet* Sorry!..
I had a lot of Medifast food laid in before.
, but after my 1 week check up, I am going to the store and going to try a lot of new stuff..
I hate eggs. Couldn't eat them very often before.
, and now the thoughts of them after.
Gives me the collywobbles. Same with cottage cheese. I wish I liked eggs; they would be perfect for the phase, with dozens and dozens of variations to keep things fresh...
I am 5 days out and I want to add some soft eggs to my diet...I added in really thin mashed pottoes with broth and that was good. I am taking it easy though...
Amen! Every small bite a victory feast in itself!..
