I would have but I don't use flaxseed. I think most people use almond flour if they bake anything. If you have some good uses for it and the nutritional info is medi-friendly, maybe suggest some things for us! When in doubt, of course, ask your clinic if you can use it.

Still stuck kinda. My fault really, with all the rain I haven't been exercising in the pool or on my bike like normal. I'll get there, I just need to be patient. I am still losing at the clinic, it just doesn't feel like I am going anywhere. *sigh*

It is my TOM and hope i see a loss this week. Week one was FANTASTIC 9.8lbs week 2 only .06 (fustrating) week three ? either way I have never stuck to a diet this strist ever. Jo asked me if I have alot to loose and the answer is my goal is 38more but I would love to see 48-55 more if thats humanly possible. The last time I saw 140 on the scale I was 14!! I find my food choices are becoming the same daily rutine so I'm looking to switch it up alittle bit.. Keep up the great work.. I miss pizza

I use almond flour and coconut flour for baking. They both work well, but coconut flour is interesting to work with. You have to play with proportions a little harder to get it to work well, but the results are well worth it.

I did the mushrooms in the oven at 450 for about 10 minutes after washing and drying with a paper towel. In the oven I brought the mushroom up on a cooling rack on my cookie sheet so the water would drip down (rather than the mushroom just sitting in its own water). I didn't seem to have a problem with them being watery. Hope that helps!

Mushrooms

Just an FYI....you shouldn't wash mushrooms.....they are like sponges and absorb any liquids!!
Take the paper towel and brush the dirt away or buy a mushroom brush I actually have one of those
If there is any particles left on the shrooms, I just pare them away!!!!

Welcome Cupcake...I'm on week 2. I miss Pizza too! My kids were eating it late last night and I wanted a piece soooo bad. But I got out my yogurt

I am hoping that the longer I am on this "lifestyle" the urge to have all the good food, I mean junk food, will lessen??

Pizza was huge for me to overcome as well. I think there must be some kind of drug in it.

My suggestion is to stop ordering it for your kids. It will take several months but just bite the bullet and don't have it in the house. The ONLY way I was successful during acute is to get the junk out of the house completely. We reserved treats for going out. My husband took them out to ice cream or even I did and ordered a big diet coke instead. If we went out to eat, we let them order whatever junk food they wanted. It worked out just fine.

I'm sorry. I know it's hard. If I were you, I would eat 1 oz. of the brisket and some of the salad. Just make sure you eat ahead of time or take a snack with you so you're not too tempted. 1 oz. of brisket is almost 100 calories and 8 oz. of fat though so plan accordingly!

My 17 year old made it. He is nice enough to have made it when I wasn't home...but he didn't clean up and half the pizza was still sitting out when I got back. Of course everyone else is delighted and eats it up...boo hoo....I will get over it!

WOW! 100 cal. for 1 oz. I better not even take a bite. Where did you find this stuff out? Through MEDI or Online? It would be nice to know so I can check for other things.

Make your own pizza alternative! It's hard to feel deprived but something that is Medi friendly is lay in a single layers closely on a microwave safe plate about 34 turkey pepperonis and microwave for about 1 mins (I like mine crispier and sometimes check and go longer), then blot (my preference) with a paper towel, then top with 1 oz of shredded mozzerrella cheese and microwave again for 30 seconds or so....Tastes like pizza topping and is very filling (to me)! You can also do the same thing with a really good teflon pan on the stove but in that case I do the mozzerella first and let it really melt on low, then top with turkey pepperoni slices.

Ugh I am having "this isn't fair" day.....I know it's a mental thing but it still sucks. I go from loving this diet and feeling great about myself, to being frustrated.........LOL No real reason why, just that the loss has slowed down in the past few weeks, which the clinic says is because I am getting closer to goal. Plus I can't run tonight because my hubby is gone (no one to watch kids), and our VBS starts at church tomorow night, which means I won't get to run again until Friday night. I will still workout (swim, Gazelle....), but I always hate it when I miss a run. Thanks for listening to me whine.

WOE: Medi Weight Loss Clinic
Start Date: 5/31/2010
Just wanted to post 3 things that have changed about my body (not appearance) that I find really miraculous. These are things that I had accepted as normal parts of aging (I am 57), having no idea that my diet might have had something to do with it:

1. I was suffering with swollen legs, ankles, feet, for no reason that the doctor could determine. Of course, I was given fluid pills, which didn't even work. This had appeared suddenly, and nothing I did (limiting salt, working out, drinking water) helped. MY FIRST WEEK ON MEDI, THIS WAS GONE COMPLETELY.

2. For years, I have stayed away from broccoli, cucumbers, cabbage, onions, cauliflower, due to what I thought was IBS--pain, bloating, ETC. I have added them back into my diet, kind of as an experiment, and I HAVE HAD NONE OF MY PREVIOUS SYMPTOMS. Could the issue have been with these when combined with grains? Interesting to ponder...

3. For a couple of years, I had noticed that, upon standing after sitting for quite a while, my legs would be stiff for a minute or so, until I got going. I realized yesterday, out to lunch with friends, after sitting for about 3 hours, I got up, raring to go, with no pain or stiffness, while my friends (we are all in our 50s) took a couple of minutes to get moving!

I find it completely amazing that these things have changed in just 5 weeks on this plan.

Nance - I know those amazing feelings myself! I think that overdoing carbs in our bodies (for some more than others) can cause inflammation. I really believe this! I have written about this over the past 7 months on the site. When I started I wrote how lousey I felt in so many areas, and you know what? Being on Medi WOE I no longer have joint pain in my fingers, low back aches nearly so often, epigastric discomfort, brain fog as I call it, etc. Over the 4th of July weekend I had no opportunity to plan ahead and pack what I was going to eat and we were out in the "boonies" visiting family, and relied on choices that were there at the house to eat. Less than 48 hours there, and too many carbs later, I'd gained 5 lbs! Less than 24 hours back home I'd lost 4 of the lbs eating my protein and drinking my water....and a couple days later had lost the other lb. I really think we are attacking our bodies, making them inflammed, our bodies cry out in pain and discomfort, and we then medicate the discomfort and continue to eat poorly! I learned from that weekend WHAT my body likes. It likes lower carbs. During the extra 5 lbs my ankles were puffy. Even though I walked on both mornings there quite a distance, the calories weren't burned off, and more than extra calories I think the carbs (pasta, bread, excess fruit, ok and the dacqueris....) made me extra fluffy. And I was not satisfied, even though I was taking my Metformin, AS, and fat burner. Carbs in that fashion create a bottomless pit feeling in me and I was not even a smidge "full"--interesting experiment of a weekend. I don't recommend it to anyone....but just wanted to confirm the changes you are seeing!! (And I'm in my early 50's). Keep with this, it's the One that works!

Hey Everybody~Today after church I asked one of my friends if her son weighed about 42 lbs and she said he was 41 lbs. I asked him if he'd mind if I picked him up and he gave me a big hug and I could barely pick him up for me to be in a standing position. He was like LEAD! I had been carrying that much extra weight on me constantly....I am appauled that I did that to my body for so long. No wonder I was achey, and no wonder I was short of air with trying to jog previously. Try that sometime....pick up something as heavy as you want to lose, or have lost. What an eye opener!

Debbie - When I hit the 30 lb loss mark, I realized that was the same that my 2 year old weighs. One afternoon my husband carried our 2 yr old from the car, quickly through Target, and back to the car (since she had fallen asleep and he didn't want to wake her). When we got back in the car he kept saying how heavy she was...I just looked at him and went "Yup, and that's how much I've lost". He was amazed when I put it like that. Now, I look forward to hitting 55 lbs lost - as that's my older daughters weight - and I can't wait to make that comparison. Its amazing when you can actually visualize the weight!

I tried this idea. We had friends over, and they ordered pizza. It was filling, and I did feel a bit like I was eating pizza. So that was good.

About the brisket, she had a real lean one and a fatty one. I had a bit more than 1 oz. I think, and salad. So I feel that went good as well.

World Cup over....hopefully the parties are over for a while too!

I will check out the Daily Plate, thanks.

Super job on all the losses

Debbie-Thanks for the confirmation. I am so glad that you, too, are feeling better on this WOE. I do know for sure that this is the one that works. I have had fibromyalgia for over 20 years, and I'm eager to see if there might be a diet connection with that, too, as I regain my health. I hear you about being fuzzy-headed. When I used to OD on sugar, I would almost feel like I was drunk. It just feels so good to be clear-headed and in control. You are so right about how our bodies cry out to us for what they need, and we ignore them and medicate them. I thank God that we have finally awakened to this WOE!

That's so interesting and confirming about your forced experimental weekend. You lost that weight so quickly! Good job! I love that you picked up that child to have a tangible reminder of what you have lost.

Does anyone ever look at the plate they just made themselves and think "I'm so tired of eating this stuff"? I have half a HB egg, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, and deli ham with laughing cow cheese in it. Normally I would think this is great. I need to get more creative, but I'm tired. TOM week for me....perhaps this has something to do with it? I gotta eat something..haven't even met the 500 cal mark.
