Mary T8M - I've tried it with the mini turkey pepperoni too....actually it's less fatty tasty with them. Either way is good!

CindyCRNA - I'm Debbie and RN! Thanks so much for sharing your "shopping" list! I really appreciate it because I'll soon need to be eating more in the long term MWL WOE and I haven't made the protein pancakes, even oopie rolls, or anything like that. But I know I'm carb sensitive due to metabolic syndrome/insulin resistance and on Metformin TID so I'll have to adapt. Your weight seems pretty low for your height, but if you're healthy, feel good, and maintaining it that's awesome. I'm probably older than you, and I think my end goal will be 137 lbs at 5'4". Good to hear from you....I hope you'll post on the MWL sites here again. How are you maintaining, other than through LC diet? You can answer this on the MWL July thread, since this thread is more for products.

Which ever Netrition product I had, it took about 6 tablspoons of powder to equal 2 tablespoons of PB. Think powdered sugar. Little water, poof, it was gone! But maybe this wasn't the PB brand.

Debbie, nice to meet you! I will go find the MWL threads.

I must add something to the good list.
Harmonized Protein by Progressive Nutritional Therapies in vanilla. It's a little bit pricey but really good tasting and the nutritional info in well within Medi limits. I found it at a locate family owned health food store but if you search online you can find it way cheaper. I'm hooked. I just wish I had bought the large container.

Charlene - So is that a whey protein?

Hmmm....good question....I'm scared now because it seems to also be milk based...I wonder if that's ok? I may take the label with me to my next appointment. I have eaten it twice so far....but now I'm gonna hold off until I know if it's "ok". Sigh....
Here's the ingredients and nutrition, comments appreciated What exactly is the difference between milk protein and whey protein? I need to learnmore about this topic I guess.

Charlene - I was in no way questioning what you were drinking, I just wasn't familiar with it! I drink Jay Robb whey protein mix and the MWL clinic sells whey protein mix....I'm being a bum right now but from what I remember whey is from milk. No biggee...they've taken the fat out, right!

I want to try the Jay Robb, it looks good but I wasn't sure how it would taste. I'm just second guessing myself right now....the nutritional label looks good but I wanna make sure. I don't want to sabotage myself in ANY way.

I have the Jay Robb chocolate and I also have the pina colata. Love them both! One thing I've done is put a scoop in blender, add 8 oz water, and about 2 oz 1/2 and 1/2....then pour in to two flexible disposible cups, put in freezer, eat within 1 hour before they get as solid as ice....like a "popcicle" but it's all protein!

Debbie, I wanted to ask you how you decided that your at goal weight should be 137 - I am also 5'4 and and looks like around the same age. In order to get normal BMI of 25 one needs to be 145 lb. This is how I decided that it will be my goal. Now I am about 14 lb or so from it.

Irabeslim - Yes, 145 would be the weight just get just into the healthy range, with BMI 25. Well, I didn't want to be tetering in and out of the healthy range (psychologically). My doc had showed me healthy range is 18-25 BMI and told me I could go lower than 145 but I know it's hard for me to maintain lower than 135. So, I decided 137, which was also 10 lb left to go and seemed like it wasn't so right around the corner. I have an appt to see my plastic surgeon (who did my breast reconstruction/TRAM flap post mastectomies), but that appt isn't for about 10 days, I want to ask his opinion as I lose this weight and all he worked on (!) so I don't make myself disproportioned. I just want his advice. I had my surgery at 178 lbs and he last saw me about a year ago at about 185 lbs. I'm still flabby and see cellulite in lots of areas at 147, so 145 didn't seem enough MWL-wise. I think some of the decision has to do with my body build too, I'm more medium framed. I'm planning to add some low weight training soon. You are doing fabulous, my the way!

Thank you, Debbie. You got a point there about going below the normal BMI. It is just I never been at that weight in my adult years, so I am not sure how I will feel or even if I would be able to maintain it. My lowest was 158 (for a couple of weeks and 163-165 for about 3 years after previous attempt to lose weight. Then I gained all of it and some more back. I am determined not to do repeat that this time. I am doing weight and cardio training 5-6 times a week but I don't think this "flabby" and "cellulite" will go away even with another 14 lb to lose. We all talked about plastic surgery that is the only way to get rid of that stuff but...

Irabeslim....just wait until you reacdh goal and see how you feel. I originally set my goal at 135 (I'm 5'1") because it had been so long since I had seen those numbers that I really didn't think it was possible to reach.......LOL But now at 139 I can tell that 4 more pounds isn't going to get me where I want to be. So I changed it to 125. I NEVER dreamed that I would do it, but now I know that I can, and I have a plan in place for this to last a lifetime. Medi has totally changed my life.

Charlene - From what I've been told (from my brother who is my "go-to" guy with all health related questions...he is a health/fitness junkie - actually majored it in @ college! He hovers around 5% body fat!). Anyways - as he explained it in simple terms to me is that what you want is whey protein isolate. This whey protein is derived from cow's milk and also contains essential amino acids that we need. Our bodies break it down in a more beneficial way, which apparently makes whey protein the best protein for our bodies to sustain fat loss in a calorie-restricted diet (something with how it delays the absorption of glucose in our blood). It also helps prevent the loss of lean muscle mass. Ok, that's what I know in a nutshell!

Thanks for the info. It looks like some type of blend apparently but I'm gonna hold off on it until I get to my goal, I think. I have been using Aria brand which is a whey and soy blend and I have had good results....but it's also a lot lower in calories than most (80 calories per serving). There is just SO much to learn!

I haven't tried this yet, but after reading this post I can't help but thinking about doing this with peanuts? Or any other nuts for that matter. I've been craving something sweet and chocolatey so I might give this a go! I'll let you know how they come out!

I'll start off by saying that if there is a more appropriate place for this post, please let me know! I'm still learning the forum, and I scoured it pretty well but could not find a discussion specifically on supplements.

I've seen several of you mention that you have found supplements comparable to those involved with the Medi program (I am on the VitaSuper, Fat Burner, Calcium, Colon Cleanser, my own Omega, prescription). Would you guys mind listing them for me? Just looking ahead to see if there is something that could save me some money in the long run, I know the VitaSuper is included monthly so I would be looking for the Colon Cleanse, Fat Burner, Calcium, and welcome and omega suggestions (the one I am taking was given to me).

Thanks!!

Hi there all--
I just wanted to add to the mix here..

I use the Harmonized Protein and I love it... The Galeos Ceasar dressing is the best...all their products are fantastic...so yummy.. I showed the bottle to the nutritionist at the clinic and she thought it was great.
The PB2 is fantastic..I really dislike all the Walden products...

Question: Are we allowed to have the mama lupes tortillas??
Thanks...

I use only the Medi Vita Super (because it's free) and the fat burner. Otherwise I use Sam's Calcium and stool softener. I also have Walgreen's Nature Made Flaxseed Oil for the Omega. I have thought about using another fat burner but I have no idea what to use.

Thanks guys, looks like Sam's is something I need to look into. I am currently using a Nature Made Omega (got it free during the Albertson's Monopoly promotion), and the rest Medi meds. I have a pack of the Mega Green Tea from Target (the box, like 4 bucks). Is anyone using that, or should I just throw it out? It's only like a 15 day supply, but I still hate to see it go to waste.

I used the Mega Green Tea Fat burner, and I didn't notice a difference in my weight during that time (which is a good thing), I still lost weight during that time, just not any more than I did with the Medi fat burner. But I did notice that I could only take it in the morning. If I took the afternoon dose I was WIRED at night and couldn't sleep. That was the only thing that I changed. So I ended up taking it in the morning for awhile, and then the Medi fat burner in the afternoon. When I did it that way I didn't have any problems sleeping. I was like you, I had it on hand and didn't want it to go to waste.

Thanks Lins! I'm really glad you posted that comment, because I am having a HUGE problem with wanting to fall asleep at 8PM (not possible in my house, lol). Maybe I will switch my afternoon dose to the Mega green tea and see if it helps, I have a very high tolerance for caffeine and stimulants so it probably won't hinder me from getting to sleep on time (which is usually around 1AM).

Some more products to try

OK, I thought I'd add a couple of my finds here. I've been getting Nature's Hollow Preserves and Ketchup for a while now from Whole Foods. I had started cutting out sugar several weeks before I started the MWL program and loved these. They also make a maple and raspberry flavored syrup thats pretty tasty. All of these use sugar alcohols and 20g (a nice tablespoon is 0,0,0)

Next, I've discovered JulianBakery.com I've ordered the Net1 Carb, Cinnamon/Raisin Net 2 Carb and the sourdough bread. We freeze the loaves and pull out a slice (or two) to eat. Example of why I get these; the highest calorie bread of the 3 I've listed is:
Cinn/Raisin 1.5 oz = 137 kcal, 16g of protein (that's 66 kcal protein), 2 net carbs, 1g fat.

Add a spoonful of the preserves (my favorite is the mountain berry) and you've got something! It's my occasional sweet treat in the evening with a cup of tea.

Finally, I'm not big on sweet stuff for breakfast and actually don't like to eat for a couple of years after I start my day. But to get my supplements down and not get nauseated, I will down a SuperWhey Protein Shot. (Get them at Walmart). 110 kcals, 26g protein and 1 carb. They are just enough to get me started with my protein and a bottle of water, I'm good for a couple of hours.

Ummmmm..just a thought here but according to all the data I have from MWL...breads are not allowed in the acute phase...and that includes all those that are mentioned as well as the tortillas. Those items are allowed once you reach goal and transition into maintenance and wellness.

Wow, your ideas sound delicious! ... but, I agree with Jo ~ my materials from Medi say bread of any kind is a no-no in the acute phase. Too bad, 'cause that hamburger I had for dinner would have been even better on a bun! Everybody is different, so maybe you can get away with the Julian Bakery breads, but my body is very unforgiving. Guess I'll stick strictly with the guidelines ~ and file away your ideas for transition!

I didn't realize this was limited to the acute phase and certainly didn't mean to add "unacceptable content" so please feel free to remove my postings.

No worries. The majority of our threads are related to the acute phase for the most part....if you are in maintenance...then breads in limited quantities are certainly okay. You need to know how your body responds to them and then you can make a decision as to how to proceed. No need to remove anything...I was looking at your profile and there are no stats there, nor a date when you began the MWL program. If you could add those in, we can celebrate your successes with you! If you are not in the MWL program, then much of this forum will not be very relevant for you, but you are certainly welcome to browse about.

We do have a thread specifically for those who have reached maintenance.
