10:30am: coffee, 3 Tbsp half and half, Splenda; Medifast cinnamon roll crunch bar
12:00pm: Medifast scrambled eggs with 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Light cheese scrambled in

5pm: Shirataki Ramen
6pm: 3 devilled eggs (6 halves; made with low fat mayo and mustard) and 1/2 cup raw cauliflower

I am still mildly sick and also have PMS. I didn't walk today, just played fetch in the yard with the dog for a bit. The scale said 203 this morning, same as yesterday.

Edited: I forgot to add my stats for today.

How are MF scrambled eggs different from fresh eggs, scrambled in a non-stick pan?

The Medifast eggs (Original) are made from egg whites with whey protein, vitamins/minerals, and fiber added. They fit the very specific nutritional profile for a Medifast meal with a certain fat/protein/carb level.

Eggs and Egg Beaters are allowed as protein sources for the Lean & Green meal.

I'm curious if having such a low calorie diet leads to possible weight regaining and cravings?

I'm not being snarky, but 935 calories seems really low is this why you have a lot of protein to make up for it? Our bodies need around 1,100 just to function every day?

Yes, the high protein is to prevent the body from breaking down muscle to use as fuel. With the low cal/carbs there is a mild state of ketosis that causes fat to be burned as the primary fuel. The program was designed by cardiologists who wanted to preserve muscle while reducing fat in obese patients.

I think there is a high risk of regain in any weight loss, if you go off the plan and go back to eating too much of the wrong things. It's really important to change our habits to maintain a healthy weight in the end.

Thanks for asking... I didn't take it as snarky at all! Just a reasonable question.
