Hi I'm new to Medifast and new to the forum.
I'll start with the non-TMI question, so you can skip the TMI one if you're so inclined.
I'm on my third day of Medifast and I've not experienced any extreme hunger, but I'm wondering if it's because I'm doing something wrong. Since I started on a weekend and didn't want to draw any strange questions from my boyfriend's kids during our usual weekend breakfast, I've been breaking up my L&G meal into two meals... one in the morning and the other at night. I started with an egg white omelet made with about a half cup of spinach (which is pretty typical for me), and then my dinner was a salad with grilled chicken. The rest of the day, I had 4 of the Medifast meals and finished the day with the Medifast pudding. Does that sound okay?? Do I have to have everything in my L&G meal all at once?
Now, the TMI one, that has to do with bowel movements.
I haven't had constipation or anything, but my poop is green (sorry, I couldn't help but notice it). This has happened when I've had green nutritional shakes before (like VegaOne), but I've mostly been sticking to the solid Medifast foods so far. Is this malabsorption? I feel okay, so I'm not really motivated to ask a doctor. I guess I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Google isn't picking up anything similar.
