Good morning on this sunny Father's Day all!
I am starting day 4 of Medifast, and while that is not a long time in the grand scheme of things, it has felt like longer. I don't mean this in a bad way, either! I am enjoying Medifast thus far, and I am seeing results just after 4 days. The first day was hard. I was SUPER hungry and thought how easy it would be to just grab something to eat, but I made myself resist and I am so glad I did. Each time I resisted and chose NOT to eat off plan, I felt so great! The second day was not as bad. I knew what to expect, but I was still really hungry. Yesterday, the third day was not bad at all. I felt hungry very little, and when I did, it was typically about time for a medifast meal, so it worked out. Today I woke up and had a shake after an hour. That was almost 2 hours ago and I am hungry already, but very shortly I will have a soup so I'm noticing my body adjusting to a schedule.
I spoke with the nutrition staff at Medifast and they said if I get too hungry, I could simply add a few ounces of protein throughout the day. Each day I have eaten fish, so yesterday I had tilapia. Rather than 7 ounces, I had 10 ounces. 7 with dinner, and 3 more ounces a little later.
That seemed to help a bit, but I don't think I like adding anything to the plan. I want to feel like I am doing it 100%.
Anyway, that's my update on Medifast Day 4!
Hope everyone is doing well!
