First of all Your thoughts on Medifast? Does it work? What is it? Thanks for any response. Second question of mine... Many of us have noted changes in taste that can occur after.

Surgery.

Some changes appear to be temporary while others seem to be morew permanent..

So before GBS, I'm like the biggest steak guy in the world - ribeye, New York strip, T-Bone. I'd have it as often as I could afford it. When I'd see cattle in the fields here, I'd think that the only thing missing was a charcoal fire and a steak knife. It was one of the foods I "mourned" prior to.

Surgery.

..

So imagine my surprise about 3 months post op when I could have beef again if I wanted it and found it no longer held any appeal. I thought this was just a phase I was going through. But I'm now 14 months post op and my aversion to both beef and pork is stronger than ever. The smell of beef cooking - which use to be so inviting - now repulses me..

I can eat chicken or turkey - though it is not something I get cravings for. Fish & seafood, though I still love - baked salmon in particular floats my boat so to speak..

I'm curious if anyone else here was a steak lover prior to.

Surgery.

And yet lost their desire for after.

Surgery.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..

Beef... it's what's for dinner! Lol.. where is it??? It's in my tummy!.

I slow cooked some steak with a can of rotel tomatoes with lime and cilantro. It was supermoist and fell apart in my mouth. Yes I still love steak. Pork.. I really can do without. I love seafood, but hate cooking it..

Miss seeing you about Jerry. Happy Holidays...

NOT ME! I love a good steak and it is one thing I tolerate well. Hasn't changed post op for me at all!.

I eat mine med-rare so it is still moist and juicy!.

Now, chicken, and turkey etc which I used to love I can't tolerate it is way to dry for me!.

Funny how we all tolerate different things!.

And Lu, I still eat the raw fish! Love good sushi! Now though I found a place that will make it with soy paper for me that isn't as tough as seaweed and much easier for me to eat and digest!.

I.

Hope.

Everyone has a wonderful Christmas! Me? I am on call, just hoping everyone in a 50 mile radius stays healthy and free of any heart attacks! (at least on the day itself) But if anyone really is truly having an MI and needs us, I don't mind going in, afterall, they want to be there even less than I do!.

Well I'm only 3 weeks out however I have not had bread in 6 weeks, and it does not bother me at all. I loved bread, a nice hot french loaf fresh from the bakery with butter, omg...but nothing, hopefuly that will stick with me. Only time will tell...

Hmmm, I wonder how I will feel about beef when I'm ready for it because that is the only thing I want right now and can't quite have it! Cooking it for my family feels like torture!!! I'm surviving on baked fish and canned chicken right now! Might be interesting!..

I am just amazed at how different everyones pouch is and how they work. Mind you Id eat the stuff if I could but MY pouch for some reason just doesn't like meat. To the point now where I stopped fighting it and stick with other protein. Maybe in time I at least.

Hope.

I can tolerate it ..

Why is that? Is it stomach acid that I lack?.

I mean, Laura thrives on it and I swear I will puke on the third bite?.

Go figure!.

Just sayin Lu..

I am pre op and heard about not being to tolerate or losing a desire for foods you ate before. Im not a bread eater now so that would not be a problem. I do enjoy a porterhouse every now and again but it is not at the top of my list. My live on chicken, fish, and seafood, more chicken than anything else. Hopefully that doesnt change. I also love vegetables.



I see everyone is different and I will have to wait and see..

The 21st of Dec I will be post-op 5 months. I am down 64 lbs. and have relatively ffew problems. I used to love sweets, meat and bread. I eat an occasional cookie, a sm piece of hamburger is all I can tolorate in the meat line, and whole-grain bread is the only kind that works for me and that is maybe once a week.. Ground turkey, fish,seafood all ok.



Coffee.

With a meal.I think that if I had a Medifast food wish list, it would be to have a Medifast diet coke with a piece of pizza!LOL! I love the way I look now too much to even try it though! You will too!!.

Merry Christmas to all! Headed south for the holiday!!!!..

Love the cow, love the bird, love the fishies and crustaceans not to fond of the piggy... thinly sliced ham roll-ups are fine & sausages are great but pork chops, hunks of ham and tenderloin lay heavy. Don't eat lamb (had a sheep as a pet as a child) would be like eating Fido..

Just made a yummy steak dish last night....

Pre-op my go-to proteins were eggs, chicken, turkey, pork and seafood of just about any variety. Ate beef maybe once or twice a year - just not my thing & didn't like the smell. Had cheese sprinkled on other things, but again, it never called to me..

Post-op 2 months and eggs are a touchy thing, sometimes my pouch will keep em and sometimes not - and the smell of cooking eggs makes me nauseous. Apparently my pouch has a major grudge against chicken, turkey, & pork, it won't tolerate even one bite without uncomfortable repercussions. Though the aroma still sings to me! Seafood, tender med-rare beef, and cheese are my happy proteins now. It's so weird how what tasted/smelled good or bad in the past can now be opposite. I do.

Hope.

My pouch will reconsider it's stance on poultry... I miss it...

Not so weird , as I just watched a Dr. oz episode. He talked about how they are finding out that our esophegus and stomach actually have tastebuds! They figure that is why since Medifast diet soda came on the market obesity has flourished, your tastebuds in stomach and esophegus taste sweet and send messages to brain to expect calories, when we don't get the calories our bodies need more and ask for more. mmmmm interesting eh?..

I love meat. I mean I REALLY LOVE meat....

I am six weeks post-op on Tuesday and am not having a whole lot of luck with meat - I've tried chicken (ate one bite, thought I was having a freaking heart attack, almost asked my dad for some of his nitro, ran to the bathroom), turkey meatballs (went down ok initially, now make me nauseous to look at) and beef meatballs (craving them badly, chicken heart attack redux). I am not a fish eater, but am going to have to see what my pouch thinks about salmon (one of the few I will eat) and shellfish. That might be this weeks pouch experiment ... mmm, can anyone say lobster salad ... or crab salad (shelly has a recipe on her blog for a crab salad that loks extraordinarily yummy, might be trying that)?.

I really really really want to be able to eat some bloody steak in a few months, but am afraid that it just isnt going to happen for me. I am getting used to that idea and have started experimenting with tofu ... no blood, but you can do some tasty things with it!.

I think I may buy a vegetarian cookbook for myself for Christmas...

I USED to be a huge chicken eater and my tummy absolutely hates it now!!! I've tried pork and turkey as well and they are no longer my friends either. I'm only 71/2 weeks out but I'm wondering when I will be able to tolerate meat???? I am what I like to call a "TEMPORARY VEGETARIAN" I am hoping that it changes cause I love meat!!!..

I haven't had this with steak as I haven't tried steak just yet (only 2 months out) but I have found that with chicken. The smell of chicken repulses me. I can eat chicken lunch meat. That's the only way I can tolerate it..

It doesn't matter how it's prepared though the smell, texture, or simply the look of it is disgusting to me..

I have found a new love of fish and Im happy with that. I can also tolerate turkey and other lean meats but chicken is not one of my fan favorites...
