I am glad you asked this question, because I am a little confused too! The quick start program indicates that a serving size of the morning star burgers (meatless option) should be 2 burgers....however, depending on what kind of morning star burger you enter in your meal plan program, it gives you different "servings." For example...the Morning Star Flameless burger (or something like that) I had today... the program calls for 3 burgers at a total of 270 calories, but the quick start says any Morning star should be only 2 burgers. I played it safe and only ate 2. My calories are a little low for the day...but a little safe than sorry...of course now I am worrying that the total equation may be off as the program is designed. Hope that didn't confuse anyone!!!..
Oops!!!!! I missed that second post!!! Sorry Juli! Thanks for your tips!! Next time I will read the entire thread! haha.
All my best.....
Sharon having a tired moment!!!..
Thanks so much! This will help a lot. I printed it out and will put on my fridge. You are right, the 2% cottage cheese servings are contradictory. I am thinking 1-1/2 cups of seems like an awful lot and that we'd better stick to 1C, which is still a good serving. Thanks again for your help,.
The L&G meal that you had was perfectly fine. Our L&G meals do look big, but, remember - they're not full of fat.
I always just log all my Medifast meals for the day before I make my L&G and that way I can play with the numbers until all of my stats are ok..
Example: last night I wanted to have egg substitute and cucumber salad for dinner. So, I logged all of my Medifast meals for the day including my PB2 and sugar free whipped cream. Then, I logged 2 cups of egg substitute, 1.5 cups of cucumber, and 2 grams of molly mccheese. well, I had plenty of carbs and cals so I added some tomato in. still had room to spare so I added more cucumber. Ended up with 2 cups of cucumber and .5 cups of tomato.
But, I was under 100g of carbs and under 1000 calories. They're just guidelines. I won't always be able to have 2 cups of cucumber and 1/2 cup of tomato in my salad but if I eat egg substitute as my lean and the same combo of Medifast meals then I can. What you can eat really does change every day and it depends on what else you ate...
