I will be going to my first appointment on Monday. I've been looking at the products online (shakes, protein bars, and supplements) and was wondering if anyone can give me the low down on them. I'm just trying to figure out what is going to best help me and which ones I can do without. If anyone knows any prices of the products, that would be great too! Thanks!

Shanlock,

to you and all the Newbies! You have picked an amazing program.

I'm not sure how much they cost, but I would use those things sparingly and for convenience. You get so much more bang for your buck when you eat real, freshly prepared foods. Plus you learn how to eat real food. This is not a diet with diet bars and diet protein drinks, but a Way of Life, WOL, WOE.

Hey Susie!

Thanks for your response and the welcome! I'm definitely glad that I found this forum.

I totally agree with you about the food. I guess I was wondering more about the supplements and vitamins. I know that it is important to get all the right nutrients but was wondering if you buy them at the clinic or if you buy similar vitamins and supplements and the drug store or what???

Thanks!

Week 1 they will provide a multi-vitamin, calcium, fat burner, a vitamin B12 injection, and a B1/B6 injection (which burns). After the first month only the vitamins and B12 shot are included. Many of us buy a green tea fat burner at Costco. The multi-vitamin they provided is especially designed for the program and is recommended.

They will give you a packet of information. Read it and re-read it. Keep it in a convenient place for reference.

Please let us know how the visit goes, if you have any questions, or if you need help getting through week 1.

Susie, I will definitely let you know how it goes the first week!

Once you get to the maintenance phase, how often do you visit the clinic?

Hi CAgirl and Carolina Girl, looks like I've got some neighbors on here. I live in Gastonia (don't hold it against me) But I just started and went to the South Park office. Wonderful people! Just wanted to give a shout out.

I go once a month, but it is completely up to you. I don't think McBoo goes at all anymore, but he has been on maintenance much longer. I have been on maintenance for 3 months.

Don't be surprised that the diet has been easy.

For someone who has never dieted before, you picked the right one the first time!
Good luck, and don't forget to join us and post over on the September thread.

I do go to the one in Richardson. Today was the 3rd day and I feel wonderful. This was my first time going to play 18 holes of golf and I was worried that I would get weak but it was actually reverse.

I had my 160C breakfast before hitting out and packed me two bags of snacks one was 100C Medi bar and the other was 80c Beef Jerky. I snacked on those throughout the 4.5 hours round and 54Oz of water. It was just perfect.

Andy

Thanks Kate, it's really not that bad of an area. Maybe I'll run into you one day. I'll be there on Wednesday at 8:30am for my first weigh in.

Hi all! Just started on Saturday after 1st appt. on Friday. So far, not too bad...no real cravings and no dire hunger. I am only at the end of day 2, but tested ketosis earlier this afternoon. I was pretty sure I was there based on a sickly-sweet taste in my mouth...one I've had in ketosis before. Mid-day two and already moderate ketosis, so I guess that's good.
I've wanted to do Medi for over a year, but just now felt like I could spare the money. I have PCOS, am IR, and have fatty liver disease, so I hope this will help with those conditions.
Anway, just wanted to introduce myself and not be a lurker any more.

I meant to get back and post my first weigh in right after my appt, but better late than never I guess - I weighed this past Monday and was down 9.4 my first week. I actually was alittle disappointed - I cheated at home and weighed myself and I thought it was going to be over 10 lbs - but everyone at the clinic was extremely encouraging and said I had a fantastic first week. Week two so far has been great. Headaches seem to be tapering off and I got back veggies!! I don't think I have ever been so excited to eat a salad in my whole life! I also have gotten some fantastic ideas from everyone here - I tried a great one this morning - for breakfast I had celery stuffed with a wedge of the Laughing Cow cheese - it was heavenly and only 35 calories (since celery is a freebie).

CAGirl and Carolina Girl - I have my appts at Ballantyne on Fridays too! We probably have passed each other and didn't realize it! Hope to see you there!

Once again there are no freebies on the WOE. If it goes in your mouth you need to count it.

Thanks for the info - the Medi clinic that I attend said that I only needed to track my protein calories. They gave me a list of acceptable condiments and said that I could have 2 servings of vegetables (or 1 veggie/1 fruit) and gave me a list of acceptable veggies and fruits and their serving sizes. They also said that iceburg lettuce and celery were freebies. I certainly didn't take that to mean that I could/should eat it all day, everyday. Sorry for the confusion.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Follow what you clinic has told you. Each clinic is a bit different. Of course you will eat your celery and iceberg within reason! Good luck and keep posting!

I had a little sneak peek at my weight today, we'll see how true it holds. I've been rather sick the last couple of weeks and went to the doctor today...of course, they weighed me. With clothes on, I was down 7 pounds so I'm hoping it's around 9 tomorrow .

Day 1 - Going Good

Hi y'all... I posted an intro in the September thread but thought I would comment in here too... I over half way through Day 1... have had some headaches, but I expected that so I was prepared.. have been spreading my calories out, but eating when I start feeling hungry.. and so far so good and I have plenty of calories left to get through the night so that makes me happy... I have to do some more cooking tonight as I don't want to end up unprepared..

Congrats to all of you who have finished week 1 and done so well... your numbers are really encouraging..

Well I went for my second visit today..I lost 8.5 pounds in the first week..yay! Pretty good considering I've been rather sick and had to go out of town (meaning I had to eat on the road, greasy hamburger patties, etc. but never went over calorie count).

Great Job

Way to go Wench... 8.5 pounds is so great... don't you feel like you are off to a wonderful start??

I'm finishing up day 2 on the plan... trying not to weigh in at home (I'm a scale addict when I'm dieting)... I've done fine with the plan so far.. figuring out how much I need in the morning to keep from getting hungry.. but still spreading out my calories so I have enough at night..

I've got a friend on the plan too.. she started 2 weeks before me so she is a great support..

Now I just have to dread the shot tomorrow.. I hate needles..
