Allowed 3oz lean meat on the Optifast.

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Last week I reported to the Kaiser staff that I was feeling fatigued. They did extra tests on my blood and told me that I can have 3 ounces lean meat every day.
It is hard to stop eating once you have wet your appetite with the meat. I ate more than just the 3oz last week. I still lost one pound. I thought I would gain.
Yesterday I was back on track and stuck to the Optifast shakes and lean meat.
I reminded myself that this is lent and that helped me control the urges.
Tonight and tomorrow I will have the marinated chicken breast.
I entered the recipe in my poultry recipe book.
I wish someone would try out my recipes and rate them. This one is extremely low fat.

    The Optifast product guide says you can substitute 3 oz of lean meat for one of your shakes if you can't arrange to have your shakes (special occasions, caught away from home, etc.). I only did it a couple of times during the 12 weeks I was on product but those meals were HEAVEN after so long without food. I always lost weight in spite of those little indulgences and I'm sure you will too although maybe not as fast as you would on straight product.
    Staying healthy is more important though, so follow what your weight loss counselors suggest.
