I don't know what to make of the fact that my highest calorie days lead to better weight loss. It does make me a little skeptical of the whole Medifast process since I feel like I messed it up with too much fat and fish last night.

Upon further examination, I guess since I kept my carbs really low, maybe thats why it worked? Strange.

Its a lot of things. It could be your body changes, body chemistry, your water intake, your sodium intake, eating too many carbs, eating too less carbs, too many calories, too little, etc etc. The overall thing is that you know Medifast is NOT a hoax because there are just too many success stories to even think that. You just have to figure out what works for you. The bottom line is CALORIES. You can eat 0 carbs but as long as you eat over your calories you will always gain. That's just the fact of weight loss. So eating higher fat items but only eating like 60 carbs means your brain has to take up for the missing 40 carbs, which means that it converted your fat into energy since there was no more carbs, meaning they were used. That results in weight loss. There is alot to it. I would suggest you google about Medifast and being in "ketosis" (altho medifast is just a light form of ketosis). It will give you more insight to losing weight on a program as such. Just my daily 2 cents on your

I know Medifast isn't a hoax or anything... its just that I feel like I was losing more when I was just doing my own thing. It could just be the timing of it, since I did cut back my calories a lot before even starting Medifast. My TSFL coach was telling me that its not until week 2 or 3 until your body gets used to the whole fat burning thing. Its just been over a week and I did lose a little over 3 lbs during that time. It shouldn't be disappointing that I lost about 3 pounds in a week. I don't know why I'm not satisfied! I go from dreaming about what it will be like to be skinny to getting overwhelmed that its taking so long. I just cant get it through my head that its not going to be "that long" because most people who aren't doing Medifast are losing much slower!
