So today was my first day on Medifast! I ordered my 4 week supply over the weekend, but found a local person on craigslist selling some of the meals, so I went ahead and started before my shipment came!
I had chocolate pudding, broccoli soup, pancakes and chili.
I cannot believe how good these meals were!! Of course, there is a certain, familiar "product" type taste if you think about it, but overall these were fairly pleasant! I will be trying the mac n' cheese tomorrow, which I hear is very terrible, so we'll see! I was thinking about putting a few ounces of ground beef in it with some type of bbq or steak sauce (if allowed) possibly. Not sure yet!
Pancakes were my least favorite, but I didn't have any syrup or anything with them. They were very thin and a little oily?? This could be due to me preparing them incorrectly, don't know. They just weren't my fav. But I ate them, and they were definitely tolerable.
As far as hunger, I can't say I suffered much at all! And that's odd to me because I find myself hungry after eating much more typically! I made sure to have a meal right about every 3 hours and that worked great. I peed a lot because I drank 1 liter of water at work, in addition to the water used to make my meals. I really plan to step the water intake up because I've read you should drink HALF your body weight in ounces DAILY! That's a LOOTTT of water for me. But if it will help I'll do it!
So the end of day one has left me feeling great and like I am ready to take this on! I know it will get tougher, but I think getting through today gave my stock in myself a little boost.
