Cottage Cheese and Lowfat Cheese-New Quick Start Guide

Postby bikipatra » June 2nd, 2007, 8:03 am

I was just reading the new Quickstart Guide again and noticed that these foods were no longer listed as meatless options. Does that mean no more of these?

I think Mike would say, if you've eaten it in the past and it worked, go ahead. His is the 'course catalog' analogy and you go by the QSG you were using when you first started MF. So have your cottage cheese in good health, I say!

I did a little research Biki. That question almost made me nervous :shock:

At the bottom of the page with the lean info, it says for more meat/meatless options goto www DOT choosemedifast DOT com. If you are a TSFL customer, you can contact your HA as they have access to this through their back office. Perhaps Unca or someone else can find this on the main TSFL site that might be available to everyone (I couldn't). :cry:

So, I did, and went to community and downloads... they have additional meatless options as a PDF. It lists 1 Cup of 2% cottage cheese or 1 1/2 cups 1% cottage cheese in the LEANEST category (2 extra fat servings needed).

Yup, Biki, we may still have it.

Thanks, Mike for your note.

Sodium levels can vary among brands of cottage cheese...if you notice some water retention, no worries...it will flush its way out of your thinn' bod in no time.

I'll have Unca post the PDF file for the Medifast Meatless Options.

I have daytime nightmares over cottage cheese - it used to describe the way my ‘before Medifast’ body looked… plus I ate so much of it on previous diets that I just couldn't stomach those little curdies for years!

Enjoy your cottage cheese, Kids!

Mike can you explain to me why on the meatless options pdf it says you can have 1 1/2 cups of 2% cottage cheese and only 1 cup of 1% ? it says you have to add 2 additional fats to the 1% and 1 to the 1 1/2 %.

If you can do 1 1/2 of 2% can you do 2 cups of 2%?

thanks

Yes, I had a hard time figuring out that chart at first myself.
Basically, when you look at the chart, its color coded by number of carbohydrates. (It says this at the top under the bolded statement, but its still hard to tell).
Green is lowest carb, orange is more carb, blue is highest carb.
So, you can have 1 C 1% cottage and add 2 fats (its leanest), or 1 1/2 cups of 1% which is in the highest carb, but add 1 fat serving.

It gets confusing I know, but just remember that green is lowest carbs, blue is highest carbs. From there, just follow the fat guidelines for the category you choose.

Hope this was helpful.
