Ok, so I've been doing well on Medifast and today I wanted steak. I grilled the steak on my George Foreman grill. It was soo good that I ate 8oz. To try and even out the calories I'm going to skip the green and my 2 shakes that I'm still due for. Week this make me gain weight, will I go into starvation mode or will it even out?

Ok so the next day I ended up losing 1 lb. Then yesterday I ended up doing the same thing plus I ate my green. This morning I lost 2lbs. I think I'm craving more of the steak these two days is due to me exercising. These past two days I've really kicked it up in the exercising departmentand my body is craving the extra protein. Once I eat a steak after being on Medifast I'm soo full with all that protein on my stomach that even if I wanted to I wouldn't be able to drink the shakes.
Being new to Medifast and trying to stick with it as directed when I do something that is not in the book or my coach doesn't advise on I freak out. So, I'm just saying all this for all the people like me that do something out of the norm and wonder if they've ruined themselves on the diet

My coach told me that if I am doing intense exercising I should add and additional 3 oz of protein to my meals. Also NEVER skip any of your meals NEVER. Not even your GREENS. Eat all 5 meals plus your LG even if you cheat, go off plan, whatever. Too much LEAN protein is not bad at all and will not throw you out of Fat burning(FB)

Also, skipping your meals because you may have slipped up etc, will only hinder your weight loss so please make sure you get in all your meals regardless , also get in your water, I do more than half my weight in oz. but minimum 64oz

Thank you aliciab307! This is great information! It just baffles me how many calories are in steak which I thought would put me way over the allotted calories.

I know this is a couple of months behind, but you really shouldn't weigh yourself on a daily basis. Everyone's body weight fluctuates 2-3 pounds a day; I'd stick with every other day or just twice a week!

protein won't throw you out of ketosis, carbs will. An extra few ounces won't hurt much but I would not do it all the time.

In the beginning I did have the fluctuation in weight however, after the second month my weight loss has been consistent. There are times where I haven't lost weight however, I have not gained. Weighing everyday keeps me on track and focused. It keeps me from cheating and motivated to continue.

With the protein I have learned for my body I can have the extra protein and it doesn't affect me negatively. I've been on a steak kick for about a month and thankfully have not see any negative affects.

Thank you all for the feedback!! It's appreciated!!

Remember though that extra meat still means extra fat and calories. However, it seems to be the least evil thing to add a little extra to. My large husband who works out and lifts weights has added a little extra protein too. He has lost 46+ pounds in 51 days.
