HI all,.

My name is Rosey and I am strongly considering MF. I have tried many diets and have failed miserably at all of them. I have over 100+ pounds to lose and am committed to taking it off. I am so afraid of failing again, to the point of hesitation of starting MF,does this make sense? I was going to have weightloss surgery, but the idea of rearranging my pipes, and with my hypoglycemia it was not a wise thing to do, especially after the first year, when I would have low blood sugar problems. Does anybody know how this diet effects people who are hypoglycemic? I would think it has a stabilizing effect because of eating every 2-3 hours, and that it is packed with protien, low carbs. But, what if my blood sugar drops anyhow? Normally I would drink juice (which would throw me out of ketosis) or if Im out, eat a burger really quick, which is a no-no.

One of the reasons many of my diets have failed is because of my hypoglycemia. I want to lose wieght very much, but once my tummy grumbles, my sugar begins to fall. How do others like me do it?.

Thanks so much for your advice,.

I feel better than ever on the program and have hypoglycemia. I actually feel much better, less moody and more energy!..

I also have hypoglycemia and feel better than I have in years. I had a hard time before Medifast keeping my blood sugar regulated by eating small meals often without gaining (unless I was mega working out). So Medifast has really made a difference for me..

I also split my LG between lunch and dinner and that helps too..

And with Medifast you have 30 days to try it and see if it works. There is a lot of variety and it's very portable. So IMHO, it's perfect for those with hypoglycemia.

Success to you,.

I have severe hypoglycemia and I have not had a single episode of low blood sugar since starting the MF. The regular small meals and protein help to regulate insulin release. I think you will do greatcommit to try for 4 weeks and see what happens!!..

I have hypoglycemia and am on day 3 of MF. Had a slight headache on days 1 & 2 (coffee withdraws) I drank more water and it helped... I will be amazed to make it a week without chocolate or coffee, lol. I have not had any hypoglycemia problems and do not think I will as I feel pretty good and have only been hungry when I was at work today (my fault, I forgot to go on break, what a great reminder!).

Good Luck!..

Rockn69 take a look at all of the food can have chocolate (bars & cocoa) and some Latte, even if it doesn't have all of the caffeine you are used to. There are ways to satisfy any craving you might have and still stay OP...

This is the first program I have been on that has relieved my hypo symptoms. I feel great, think more clearly, and am less moody! My family loves this stuff and how it is helping me(and them!)..

I have lost 30 pounds with 50 more to go. I have a drs. appt. in two weeks for a major check up with all the labs. I cannot wait to see my NEW numbers!.

Good luck with your journey and know we are all here to help you succeed!.
