I've had ground beef and it was fine. I haven't tried steak yet. I am allowed to have the no yolk egg noodles and barilla Plus pasta, they both have good protein in them and are wheat products so they are processed well, however they can be very filling so only 2oz at a time as noodles/pasta tend to expand later...

Mock Brauten - Had it tonight!.

I threw a big flank steak in the crock pot with celery, carrots, and leeks, broth, and added a jar of german red cabbage. Cooked for 9 hrs, then pulled meet apart and thickened the liquid, simmered with grated apple, served over WW noodles topped with sour cream and turkey bacon. It is the first beef I have enjoyed!..

Beef is really hard but the past three nights I have eaten hot roast beef in gravey (fatfree) and it sure was good.Make sure it's moist and it's very small pieces chewed well..

Hi Joy,.

My first pureed meal was last Christmas, I pureed my prime rib with a little aujus. It was heaven! Try a little, chew a bunch then wait and see how you do. Dipping sauce is good too, check out Shelly's website for some good recipes..

Hugs! Patricia..

I had Eggface / Shelly's crock pot purred pot roast as my second puree meal (which was suggested by my dietitian), it was heaven and my pouch was good with it. Had heard from many in my support group that beef was difficult, so hadn't had it since the puree stage until last night. My husband BBQed steak. My plan was to have a white bean soup, but for some reason the soup that I have loved the last 3 weeks no longer loves me. I tried a small bite of steak (med-rare and very juicy) and did fine with it. Ended up having about an ounce - filled me up quick, but no issues digesting...

I was never told no beef. It was one of the things I tolerated well. Chicken is way to dry for me. I love a good piece of a steak! I eat mine mediumm rare and it stays moist and goes down well. I started eating it once I was advanced to the stage I could start eating solid food..

Shelly's crockpot pot roast is a great tender beef recipe that adapts well to a soft/purred diet..

No problems with very lean beef at 10 weeks out. as long as I.

Stay away.

From fat, I can eat just about anything I choose now. now mind you, after about 5 bites of whatever it is I am done, but I have no problems digesting it...no matter what it is. I just can't seem to progress beyong a little more than a quarter of a cup of Medifast food at a time, and I should now be up near three quarters of a cup...anyway...I just do a quarter of a cup, 4 to 6 times a day, and it seems to be.

Working out.

Okay...and I don't cheat, I don't get hungry, I don't crave, and I have lost 163 pounds. sigh~~~shrugging my shoulders~~~works for me.....

I have had beef from about 6 weeks on. I was told that it is really hard to digest but I did not have any problems. I have more trouble with chicken because it is too dry. Love the crock pot recipe, will be trying that one!!..

Joy this is the truth, I can't eat dead animals for life! But some of the great achievers here eat the stuff all the time and I really think some of them would tell you it's their go 2 protien. Go figure! I'm a year out and have not consumed 1 lb of beef! I am a world class athelete and thrive just fine on amino acids from a plant based deal????.

Questiion? What are the strongest animals on earth.

A Horses. Gorrillas. Get it..

But if you can do it, do it!.

FYI NO human body, butchered like us or normal was intended by Him who created U, was ever intended to us Animal based protien as your go to Medifast food source..

Ricky Dee says.

"I don't want to be a.

Lazy chewer, but it's not worth the effort.".


If you have any problem going big potty, seek plant based protien. And for christs sake try adding tofu!!!!.

All amino acids are nit equal. Digesting dead animals in an altered enviornment is not the best use of your limited energy. Give it a try.





Also your body pools aminos. So if you eat a good varity of plant, you will get your protein..

And since your body is wasting all it energy disgesting your protein, you NEED way less protien..

This is the first I have heard of no beef. My plan has no carbs for the first 6 months but any protein that isn't fatty. I made meat loaf without the bread crumbs, meatballs, chili, and still do. I just can't eat chicken breasts but cook the thighs. I have eaten steak but can't remember how far out I was when I tried it. I've had no problems with beef at all...
