Take Shape for Life

Probably the most expensive diet I’ve ever tried so far.

I’m on Day 3. I want to overeat every day so far. Dukan was a cake walk compared to this $400 diet.

Still, I am going to give it a month and my all. Even if I hate some of the food and I feel like I’m pooping hard marbles every day since I started. (Those of you who shake your head at this probably don’t know what its like to have a healthy poop where you feel 5 lbs lighter)

Update 3/15: Week one – not so fun. I binged over the weekend. Like I wanted real food STAT. I think

Update 3/25: I’m recommitting to the diet because I’m at 272 after getting back up to 276 at the beginning… ugh. I’m so unsatisfied with myself. I need to have a strict chat with my brain or try hypnosis. I also have a ton of bars, shakes, and food. So here I go again.

The Plan:

Medifast 5 and 1 plan: http://www.tsfl.com/how_it_works/medifast5_1.jsp

You have a coach who is available to you. A nutritionist and behavior analyst.

  • Lose weight quickly
  • Choose 5 meal replacements a day, one every 2-3 hours (I literally put an alarm on my phone)
  • Choose from over 70 different, delicious meal replacements such as shakes, soups, bars, hot beverages, hearty choices, cheese puffs, pretzels, pudding, and brownies. (I will review the ones I like)
  • Each has virtually the same nutrition profile designed to meet all your vitamin, mineral and nutrient needs
  • Eat 1 Lean & Green Meal when it’s most convenient (Lean & Green = lean protein + a vegetable) I have to have this for lunch because when I get home I’m too tired
  • Create a fat burning state in your body while feeling full and satisfied
  • Meal replacements are convenient and can be used on-the-go

Update 3/29: ¬†Got rid of the big autorenew kit ($390) and chose things that I think I will like. With the discount my next month of food and shakes in $170 with shipping. Not too shabby. I still add protein and veggies for my lean and green meals. I have been shopping at Aldi and getting chicken and shrimp on sale and keeping them in the freezer. I’m also getting frozen veggie deals for a $1 a bag.



Worst bulimic ever

I’d really be the worst bulimic on the planet. I can’t make myself puke if I tried. It really takes being severely sick to puke or really drunk. Let’s just say that Saturday I drank A LOT. Like wtf. Ugh. 

Diet wise I crashed and burned this past weekend. I ate everything but in small quantities. I’m down to 270.4. So really interesting. I just wish I felt better today. I puked at work after eating some of the enchiladas I made. I feel ughhhhh.

I’m starting a new program next week that uses medifast and Octavia. I need to go back to no brainer eating. I’ll let you guys know the details once I get situated with the 5 weeks of food.
