Beginning week 2 you will be adding 2 servings of vegetables/fruit, which are in addition to your protein calories. And starting week 2, you also need to account for all the carbs you put into your mouth as part of the recommended 20-25g carbs per day. While 10-20g of carbs will be from your 2 vegetable/fruit servings, there can be carbs in processed meats, condiments, yogurt, cottage cheese, sugar free jello, etc. Always read labels for hidden carbs. Many times fat free means added sugar and just because something is sugar free it does not mean it has no carbs.

Again, this is according to my clinic and my clinic materials. I hope this helps with your confusion.
Thank you! So, I'm doing it the correct way per my clinic and the materials I have. I just don't want to start off on the wrong foot with my understanding of the program. I can't wait for my next visit on Wednesday! I am going tomorrow for my 2nd MIC injection, but I wasn't sure if there was time for questions at those quick visits. Thank goodness I was directed to LCF!

Totally Excited but have a questions...

I am so shocked by my Week 2 results! I went in on Friday for my weigh-in and found that I lost 9 pounds! I really didn't think THAT was possible! A pound more than Week 1.

Question - I need something other than WATER and coffee to drink but I can not stand the aftertaste of Crystal Light or flavored water - Any suggestions????

Hi everyone..

I have a question. I think I have to cancel my appointment for my WI this week because of an unexpected work meeting, and I don't think I can get there another day this week! I'm sure I could ask when I call, but what happens in that case? Do I still go for my shot on Saturday or totally skip the visits again until next Wednesday??? Any advice would be appreciated! THANK YOU!!

Just had weigh in #4 - lost 3.5 in fat but am up in weight, almost 5lbs in water. Didn't eat anything off program this week but I did travel and had to eat out. May be TOM on its way. Dr came in to visit and said to watch carbs and see where we are next week. My body may be reacting to low carbs and increasing my insulin levels. Personally I think I ate too many calories even though they were good calories. Its hard to measure while eating out. Also had a stressful week and snacked on almonds a bit more than normal. I am still in ketosis although it has been small to slightly moderate. Good to know I am still burning fat, so this week I am limiting carbs to 25 a day and increasing water intake to flush out this excess water. Went to a Super Bowl party, Wow Saints!, and ate veggies with tzatziki sauce, brat and sauerkraut. Drank water only. Very happy that I didn't eat any of the myriad of other tempting foods there, that was an interesting test!

Weigh in today has me at 171 lbs. I'm just so eager to get to goal...but will be happy if it even takes til June or July to get there! Saw my regular doctor and he was happy about the 19 lb weight loss and suspects that my HgA1C is now lower so sent me to lab, I'll find out results in the next few days (I have Insulin Resistance and was nearing diagnosis with Diabetes, I've been on Metformin for this). He was interested to learn that I reported that my arthritis inflammation in my fingers is minimal since I've cut out sugar and grains. I feel SO much better than I did when I last saw him in November. He had the nerve to say, "well, 135 or 140 lbs for a goal may be too far, you may have to reset that goal..." It's those kinds of comments that have made me lie to myself and make excuses! Jo, Cindy, Susie, Jerry, what did you do when people told you things like that? Particularly if it was your personal doctor?

definitely go get the shot at least. It will keep your body burning fat and give you energy. When you do go fora your weigh in, hopefully it will be on track for 2 weeks worth!!

with that super bowl food and eating out, your body may have had too much sodium and is holding onto water. Keep drinking lots of water and do some cardio to flush it out.

I think your doc is just trying to be helpful. Based on the weight charts they go by, if he considers you large framed, you should be in the 135 - 155 range so low 150's is what he would probably want to see. I'm on the other end of the stick! The charts show I should be in the 161 - 184 range and I think it's a long shot to get too 193 (or 300 pounds lost)!

Went for weigh in and got my before and after pics! And a new avatar Very exciting!

Had my engagement party this weekend. I allowed myself to enjoy some of the food- I have worked very hard and an event like this only happens once so I did my best to avoid the really bad stuff but did not beat myself up over my food choices. Everyone left town yesterday and I am back to eating healthy, drinking tons of water and exercising. I know that we have said it before but it is so true, it is not all about the slip ups and mistakes that you make but rather how you react to them afterwards. I can't believe I am now almost 10lbs under my goal weight! This program has been amazing!

As far as goal weight goes, my doc likes the 150. Says for 5'11" large frame - 150-155 is okay. I set 160 originally, and left it there. The clinic and my doc are both happy with 150, but do not want me to go any lower.

Jerry - you are look fab!

Hi everyone - I am now down 15.4 pounds and feeling really good. I am really starting to notice a big difference and others are noticing too!! I have also really gotten into the swing of things and am not really having any cravings at all anymore (except somehow the smell of pizza is really hitting me hard and lately I feel like it's everywhere!). Other than that though, it has gotten so much easier and is starting to become the "new normal".

I started thinking a lot about why this WOE was causing me so much stress and I think it's really the money more than anything. When I stalled a little bit because of TOM I just panicked because I'm spending so much money and I can't afford for this not to work quickly. I had to really sit down and think about the fact that my body seems to be doing well with two pounds a week and if I want to lose another 30-40 pounds, it's going to take another 4-5 months and I really am okay with that. The problem is that I just can't keep paying $90/wk for another 5 months, especially when they literally just weigh me in, hand me the AS and that's the end of it. So, I found a weight loss doctor in my city who will give me the same AS and weigh me in every two weeks for $70 - so $140/month instead of $360. I plan to lose the rest of the weight this way (on the Medi plan but weighing in with this Dr. instead) and go back to my clinic once I am close to goal so I can learn about maintenance and that phase.

It's funny, I feel so much more calm and at peace with things since making this decision. I'm excited for what is to come! I have a big event on March 6 and my mini goal is to be in the 150's by then!

Ok so I am back on acute to lose 3-5 more pounds before spring break... I am trying to do week 1 but probably only for a few days my goal is to lose 3 pounds by next Thursday to be at 160 for our first performance! I am bouncing between 164-162 but I figure this is normal as a maintainer...

Some of you have had questions about hunger... my tip is to distract yourself! Whiten your teeth, chew SF gum, or what I do is take a nap! When I am completely starving I take a nap and wake up when I need to start making dinner (a plus of being a college student)
Congrats to all the losers!

I wish I could find a Dr to do this for me! WHat state are you in? I asked my PCP and ENdo and they both said they do not want me to take the AS, and they will refer me to a nutritionist but not to a weight loss/obseity specialist. I REALLY feel like this is a better option if your clinic staff is not offering anything more than a scale and a script.

I have decided that I can NOT do this on my own and can NOT do this without the AS, so instead of going back ot the clinic I am unhappy with, I am going to pay the 250 and join the clinic you gals are raving about on here. I need the support. The hunger is literally making me crazy without it. I have been enduring it thinking my body will adapt and get used to it but it has been a week and I am like a crazy person! I just know I cannot afford this for as long as I will need so I am going to try to lose as much as I can until the end of May then ask them to teach me maintenance so I can at least maintain whatever I do lose.


Malloryann- I have been trying to distract myself, I think I need a few weeks of AS to get the weight coming off and then once I feel confident I will try to wean off again. Good luck with the SPring Break goal, what kind of performance do you have?

Jerry-grat pics!

Bre-congrats 70lbs!!!! That is terrific!

All of you medi experts, what is a reasonable weight loss goal for me to hit by end of May? I am currently 188 and on week 2.

I am in New Jersey (near New York) and I found a ton of doctors. I googled the name of the AS and NYC and did some hunting and found a whole bunch. If money is really an issue, look harder - I bet you will be able to find a dr.

I hit 169 yesterday and have been walking on air. My clinic has this little box in the counseling room. They've never gone over it with me, but while I was waiting I looked through all of the food box examples of what is apparently ok to eat.

Never been a vegetarian kind of person, but figured I would give the Morningstar Farms product a shot. It was absolutely amazing! I'm assuming it is "medi-compliant", but it is the Black bean burger. I look forward to this every single day for lunch. Just thought I would post this in case anyone else was as dismissive of stuff in the "tofu-y-sort" of health food section in their frozen food aisle. I was seriously missing out all of this time!

Has anyone had kidney stones since they started the program? I am about 99% sure that I have a kidney stone right now (since I've had them before and know the symptoms). I did some research online because I was wondering if the kidney stone could be keeping me out of ketosis, which I posted about last week. I found several pieces of info about low-carb/high protein diets and how they can aggrivate and/or cause kidney stones. Just wondering if anyone else has run into this.

I go in to the clinic tomorrow so I'll flet you guys know what they have to say about it.

Ashley-How are you managing without the AS? I am starving!! I am on day 2 without it and I am ready to eat anything that comes near me. I am really trying to stick it out for a few dasy to see if I can get my body to adapt to it. Otherwise I am going to have to go back to the clinic. Any tips or tricks? I am really filling up on water and it isnt helping!
I am just managing. I didnt like the way the AS made me feel and I am a bit "crunchy", very much into natural living. I drink lots of water.. have cheese, nuts, protein bars, all the healthy snack I am allowed. I am allowed a bit more calories due to training for my triathlons. HUGS!!! It does get better..

I am not sure about that....since before I was on this MWL diet program ... I had 3-4 kidney stone attacks. But since I have been on this diet for 10 weeks, so far NO trouble with it.

I did not drink a lot of water in the past, but now I drink much more water so I am sure that helps flush it out.

Very excited down to 168 pounds-I lost 4.5 this week so a grand total of 27.2 pounds in 5 weeks!

Jerry--I so pray that you are feeling ok and that the surgery gives you all the reason to show off you new body!
