Of course you can go into ketosis without MF!! Sounds like your Hell Week might be over with! Can't wait to hear how what the scale says!.
I started Atkins 2 days before the diet and avoided most of the symptoms it seems. Did get a pretty nice headache though. Happy Losing!.
Awesome! Thanks ya'll. I talked to my doctor about Medifast today (I was probably going to do it anyway!), and he said as long as I'm low-carb for insulin resistance, whatever is GREAT!.
Sounds to me as if you are on your way! Any low/lower carb program can produce various levels of ketosis. That is based on the body not having enough carbs to burn for energy, ths turning to it's stored fat. the "magic' of Medifast is the balance of nutrients we get along with the low grade ketosis, and the "no brainer" aspect of not having to count anything! You will do well on this program,your attitude seems more than ready!! Have fun on your Medifast Journey!.
Ive never heard of ketosis until I actually started Medifast lol.
Sounds like you will have an easy transition to Medifast Way to GO!.
Either way it looks like you are doing a great job already. Your ticker has already started moving. You can do this! Everyone experiences the first week different any way. I had a slight headache on the third and forth day. I felt a little drained but that is it. Oh yeah and I was really hungry but just when I thought I couldn't take the hunger anymore it was time to have a meal.
Good luck on your first official day!!.
