As I said earlier today, I am back to logging my foods. Here's today's stats:
7am: big mug of coffee, 2 Tbsp sugar free creamer
8am: Kay's Naturals Cinnamon Pretzels (I use these as a Medifast sub sometimes; similar stats)
10am: Medifast Hot Cocoa mixed w/1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder and instant coffee
noon: Medifast Chicken Noodle Soup
3pm: Medifast Caramel Nut Maintenance Bar, cup of coffee/1 Tbsp sugar free creamer
4pm: 6 oz Fage Total 0% Greek yogurt mixed with 2 tsp Barlean's Lemon Swirl fish oil
6pm: 1 cup of spaghetti squash, 1/2 cup low carb pasta sauce, 5 mini meatballs
8:30pm (planned): Medifast Pudding/Oatmeal mixture (I mix the two meals, split it in half, save one for tomorrow. It's kind of like rice pudding.)
Stats for the day:
113 g carbs
101 g protein
Comments: The meatballs were not lean enough and that's why my fat is higher than usual, but they were all I had on hand and the kids had theirs with Barilla Plus Pasta. The maintenance bar is usually saved for maintenance. I'd ordered them a long time ago to try, and had a few left. I save them for super hungry or PMSy days.. They are higher in carbs than regular bars. I went over on my condiments today as well.
So as you can see, this is about how I have been eating on Medifast lately. In order to get my stats closer to where I want them (calories under 1000, carbs under 100... ideally closer to 80) I have to follow the guidelines more closely. I'll keep logging and paying attention until I get it where I want it and the weight comes off.
