Medi No Where in my Area....

Can this be done online..... The closest Medi Weightloss is 205 miles from me......... not somewhere I will be driving to.

Vicki

Also was wondering....... what type of protein is in their Protein Shake and what do they sweeten with??? How does it taste.......

Thanks again

Well, the eating plan *technically* can be done, but it is so low in calories most people need the medications to curb their appetites. The eating plan, medications, and supplements to take are all tailored to each individual by a physician at the clinic.


Hope this helps!!

Shakes

I can't teel you how the Medi shakes taste. I use the EAS Carb control (premixed) shakes. I get them at SAMS for less than $1 per shake. 110 calories, 1 to 2 grms carbs and very low fat.

They are pretty tasty.

The only sugar sources in the chocolate shake (the only one I have on hand) is sucralose and lactase. There is no Splenda or anything like that, if that is what you are asking.

Thank you..... but sucralose is the generic name for Splenda.

I use (sometimes) Syntrax Nectar. It is Aspartame Free, but is sweetened with sucralose. It is 90 calories, and 0 carbs.

That said....you don't HAVE to use ANY protein drink if the sweetener concerns you. It appears that you have been on LCF site for a while and know that you can do low carb (even low fat, low carb) by eating "clean" without ANY processed foods or additives! Stacey is correct about saying the centers prescribe an appetite suppressant, but I know there are some people who do not/can not use them. Other people use products that they buy "over the counter".

Lol...how embarrassing! For whatever reason, when I wrote that I was thinking "sucrose", which is obviously not Splenda but also has no business in a Medi product : )


Sorry!!!

Right.... I am aware of that! I simply ask her what it was sweetened with in case I was interested in it.

whoa lets back up, I'm not attacking you or anything and I sincerely apologize if you felt I was......I just didn't want you to think you HAD to have the protein shakes to "do" Medi. Several people don't want the additives, so I was just letting you know that it is possible to do the low car, low fat, low calorie "clean".

Welcome to the site. Everyone here is great and very supportive!

Yes, I did feel you were coming on a little strong. I have been around... way to long and wanted to be sure of the sweetener because I don't use Aspertame... at all! I was "considering" ordering the protein powder. I have tried to stop using splenda... but that only works for a few days.. and then I am right back where I started. I should have been through with this journey years ago.... but.... alas... I am still here!
