Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could help you..
I had my.
In June and I haven't gotten sick or felt nauseous either. I am like Steve though, very cautious about what goes in and in small amounts except for a little vodka once in awhile lol, I have to work on that one...
I am a little paranoid about what goes in my pouch... I haven't had ANY sugar at all!! And that isn't what sounds good anyways. And like I said, I am full around 3-4oz. and I stop. I just thought I would have more trouble with this. It just seems a little too good to be true...
I get nauseated occasionally if I take big drinks without thinking....but I havent barfed once either. Im just thinkin my surgeon is super awesome lol.
I understand tho, Im slightly worried that I might be failing cuz it's not harder. Although, gettin the protein and all my vitamins is a pain in the ass and half way impossible I think lol..
That is a good thing. This tool is simply serves as a guide. It is not suppose to make us nauseous or throw up. I am very grateful that so far I have been able to tolerate foods as well as I have with the exception of a scrambled egg (which has forever traumatized me....lol) I dont wish that kind of pain on anyone. I would rather go through labor 10 times over instead of throwing up and being as sick as I was after that egg episode. I have since then tried eggs again and have been successful.
I cant stand the smell of spaghetti sauce or McDonald's. I literally get nauseated and it is an uneasy feeling..
I personally feel lucky b/c it lessens my stress of worrying about strictures and stuff like that..
Trust your program and yourself. It is beyond fantastic that you are feeling great and "normal."..
I am/was the same way..well till about 4 months out and I think I was not being as careful and chewing as good as I was sposed to...and eating too fast! but no particular foods..and thats a good thing! I hate throwing up and being sick!..
Stop eating when you are about to feel full, eliminate all empty carbs and sugars, as listed on your post op sheet. Be thankful, and stop expecting to be punished for feeling good. It will work for you if you do the next right thing...sip and walk, worry about.
And you will help yourself a lot more. It will be old hat before you know it.....
I had hardly any Medifast food issues either... only dumped 3 times in over 4 years, only Medifast food related puked 3 times..
It's not usually the pouch that fails people though it can happen... more often it's people that fail the pouch ;) IMHO..
I haven't got sick or nauseated on any Medifast food since.
And I am 19 days out. Like Kamaria said, I think I had a really great surgeon. Liquids are another issue, water hurts so I am eating alot of ice..
I feel the same way! I haven't gotten sick or felt nauseous since.
Either. I was telling a friend that I want to know how large my pouch is and then I want to get an xray to see if it stretches. I'm so neurotic about it! I am full after 4oz too. I don't know. I do know some people who have gained back all of the weight, plus more! I don't want to be one of those people. This is not an easy process!..
I am a little concerned that things are going well... a little TOO well! I have not vomitted or gotten nauseous even once! NOT ONCE since.
Liquids were a breeze and I have tried all sorts of new full liquids and everything tastes great and without problems. I feel full around 4oz. of full liquids and stop. I can drink a full cup of milk without feeling sick or full..
I think I secretly was hoping my pouch would hate Medifast food and thus make ME hate Medifast food so I didn't want any but so far- everything still sounds AMAZING to the taste!.
Is this normal or am I doing TOO awesome??.
I am really not trying to brag- I am seriously concerned!..
I thought with GBS you couldn't gain it ALL back... that physically your pouch could never grow to the size your stomach was. My surgeon sat down with me and showed me that stats and he didn't have anything that showed a complete weight gain with GBS. There was with the band and other options... hmmmm.....
You can if you overeat which is imperative that you make this a lifestyle change. The pouch can restretch and that is how individuals gain the weight back. That and going back to old habits..
This is simply a tool...
Well I am jealous! Don't worry that you're feeling good. It sounds like your doing everything right so you should feel good!..
I haven't felt nauseous except from the pain meds the first night home from the hospital. I do worry that if I don't measure my Medifast food I would eat too much. Not sure what full feels like, and I'm not sure what hungry feels like either so I have to be careful. I have had head hunger for spaghetti and meatballs though and on occasion something I may see someone eating. I just remind myself that I'm not hungry, only lusting after the food. MaryM..
Well it has been a week after.
And I havent gotten sick or felt sick to my stomach. I came home from the hospital the next day and have been getting better (less sore) every day. I was beginning to think the same thing about my pouch. I am so happy you put your question out there. So I will continue to do what the doctor suggests and remember that this is a tool to help me succeed..
Thank you again..
Hey mary.. I really like your comment. That's exactly what I'm worried about after my.
Now I know I'm not alone. =0)..
