First off, How long will it take to lose 20lbs usein Medifast GORDONI? Thanks for any answer. Second question of mine... So I am pretty much eating regular Medifast food now and am having a really hard time getting all my water in. With not being able to drink during meals and an half an hour before & after meals, it is really tough. Is anyone else experiencing this? Any tips???..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

I always have a bottle of water (Fruit 2O is yummy, and I am all about Vitamin Water Zero right now) with me where ever I go, and I have a bottle on my nightstand so I start drinking as soon as I get up in the morning. Literally. I get up, have a couple swigs, start getting ready. I am finding that it is getting easier to drink, and I no longer have to sip - I cant gulp but I am drinking a small mouthful of water at a time and it's wonderful. Always have something with you or near you, make sure you time your meals, start drinking as soon as the 30 minutes post is up! (my same rule, I usually cant wait for those 30 to pass so I can have something to drink!..

I'm having the same challenge. When I switched to Stage 3 (soft/pureed foods) and had to begin to stop fluids before meals and for an hour after, I started missing the 64 oz. daily goal. I'm lucky if I get 50 oz. in. I keep a kitchen timer set at 15 minutes so that I'm reminded to sip.

I carry water with me everywhere I go. Still, it's a challenge. Recently, I started to stop fluids only 15 minutes prior to a meal, and I wait anywhere from 30 to 50 min. after meals to drink. It's a little cheat, but I spoke with my nut about it, and she seemed to be okay with it for now, because my pouch is still so small......

I am struggling with that also. I just drink as much as I can. I find if I try to force it, I don't feel well. For me, I just focus on not getting dehydrated. Had a check up yesterday and mentioned it and they told me to do the best I can, so that is what I am doing. But I always have a bottle of water with me wherever I go!..

I struggle with water everyday. I also feel so bad and water logged most of the time. I think if I could guzzle it I could get it all in, but...I am doing the best I can in order to not become dehydrated...

I am 10 weeks post op and still have a challenge getting in my liquids, however, it has been getting better every week now. I was in the hospital a little over a month ago severly dehydrated and with a kidney infection. Had to stay in the hospital for a week, so I am constantly reminded of what can happen if I don't take in enough water...
