Friday I left for the office without breakfast.
When I got there, I was hungry so ate a cold El Pollo Chicken leg, and cheddar cheese – it was actually a really nice breakfast!
I had a lunch meeting with a client. He had just lost 26 or so pounds in 6 or so weeks on Medifast. He said he was happy he lost the weight in such a short time (I am happy for him too) – but it wasn’t easy because they had him down to 800 calories a day - they still advocate calories in – calories out. Yikes – I could not handle only 800 calories a day – I’d feel like I was starving! Plus, that’s not even doable for the long haul. (Interesting read from US News & World Report: the report states that, behind the scenes – Medifast intentionally curbs carbs!)
Even though it took almost 6 months to lose the same amount on this plan – what fun we’ve had and what good food we’ve eaten! Plus, it’s a plan for a lifetime – not just a short “fix-it” plan!
For lunch I ordered a salad and burger patty – my client did too!:
For dinner I made a really good tri-tip stroganoff. I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture – I have enough for leftovers, so I will take a picture the next time I eat some – and I will post the recipe!
