Medi Questions

Hello. I just wanted to ask the Medi veterans a couple questions.

- On the first week, are you guys really consuming ZERO carbs? What about trace carbs in like, Sweet and Low? I don't know if I can completely give up my diet soda/iced tea.

- How are you managing your salt/sodium? I see a lot of the plans/food people mention here as being processed and deli meat which are crazy high in sodium. Is the amount of water you drink daily enough to keep it normal?

I am trying to lose 20 lbs and went to MEDI, but they rejected me because my weight/body fat wasn't high enough. So I'm pretty much going to copy the plan and do my own variation.

Any tips would be helpful.

Thanks.

You're supposed to keep net carbs below 25. Some centers don't want people to have dairy the first week, but mine didn't restrict it. So for example, I often have cottage cheese, which has 6 carbs. Any carbs (the first week) are coming from your protein sources. After that, when you add in fruits/vegs, they give you a list of the fruits/vegs & amounts so the carbs from those are still really low. So now it's <25 net carbs from protein + the allowed carbs in the fruits/vegs. And I hardly ever come to close to that 25.

I haven't counted salt/sodium. They encourage you to be mindful of it, but since you are drinking a lot of water, I think that helps.
