You can have caffeine while on Medifast - they don't tell people to stop. They do recommend limiting it to 3 caffeinated drinks per day, because it will affect you more strongly when you get your system cleaned out..
As someone who does not normally drink caffeine, let me tell you about exam day a couple days ago. I had a DECAF Americano from Starbucks at 6pm (the start of my exam). EIGHT hours later I had wound down enough to go to sleep. I can't begin to imagine what a Red Bull would do to me. ACK!!!!.
Hope you feel better soon!!!..
We can have caffeine on Medifast Recommended not more than 300 mg.
It's also in the calorie burner products..
I wasn't sure when I started so I stayed away from it and all the caffine products that I liked I can't drink while on it ... foofoo coffees, sodas ... used to be energy drinks LOL..
I admit that I used to have 1 good-sized cup of coffee per day pre-MF. Once I started, I mostly eschewed it unless I was TOTALLY dragging and needed a pick-me-up, and then only about 1/2 cup. My problem is I like lots of sugar and cream. Now when I have coffee, I have a small amount and use a packet of Splenda and WATCH how much half-n-half I use. I've not had any bad side-effects and stlll sleepin' like a baby. I think easing back into caffeine when you've been avoiding it is a wise choice...
I drink 16 oz of coffee every morning and never stopped during 5&1. Interestingly enough, it actually balances out my high dosage of thyroid medication and helps keep me on a fairly even keel. But the Medifast infuser - Holy Moly!!! Talk about a burst of energy! Miss my little packets of Whupass! The nice thing about them was that it didn't leave me shaky or ill, but I sure got a lot done on the days I would use them...
I am DEF ordering some infusers next time! Who couldn't use a little packet of Whupass? Thanks De!..
Yes, I made the mistake of having my first infuser at 4:30 am right before going to the gym. HOLY CRAP!!! I was bouncing off the walls, treadmill and weights. Going to work right after my workout I was still buzzing...my boss has since banned me from caffine...
