I am doing Medifast. I will be doing Medifast for at least a week. This is my mantra. I will worry about next week then.
Yesterday first official day, and I'm not gonna lie, I was petrified. I was slightly excited too. I want to feel better. With the surgery and everything that has happened since, I have let myself get to an unhealthy place. I did have a slight headache, but it went away.
I'm not sure if I will reveal my starting weight right now. I think if I decide to do this long term I will. I will definitely update on Monday and see if I can link up to some lovely ladies and their McFatty Monday posts.
I will say, that so far I have a slight headache, but I'm not hungry. It's weird. Maybe this will only take a few days.
The shakes and food will take a little getting used to. I am doing the 5 & 1 plan. Which means I am eating 5 Medifast meals and 1 Lean and Green. Yesterday I had:
9:30 Dutch Chocolate Shake (in their shaker)
11:40 Parmesan Cheese Puffs
1:15 Salad with an egg as protein (oops, should have been chicken, but they were out)
*I should have had another shake, but I wasn't hungry and that was a mistake. Lesson learned: force yourself.
7:15 Dutch Chocolate Shake
7:40 Dutch Chocolate Shake
8:00 Dutch Chocolate Shake
I blended the last 3 shakes with Ice and I prefer them that way. Doritos were sitting on my fridge and although I really wanted to say "Screw it" I didn't and that in itself is progress!
The Medifast 5 & 1 Plan is designed to provide approximately:
- 800-1000 calories/day
- 75 to less than 100 grams total carbohydrates/day
- At least 72 grams of protein/day
- 10-34 grams total fat/day (to meet the recommendation for <30% calories from fat)
- Less than 2300 milligrams sodium/day (as recommended by the American Heart Association)
I will stick with this and be happy. Pictures soon...maybe.
*Disclaimer: I paid for Medifast myself and am in no way compensated for my review. My thoughts are my own, believe me. Although, if they want to sponsor me, I'm game.
