Ok, so I've been having the shiratake noodle bake a couple times a week for the last few weeks. I didn't do so well with my weigh in this week so I've decided to start tracking my meals. So when I looked at how much mozzarella cheese I could have (4 ounces of 3-6 grams of fat cheese) the calorie count came to 360 calories just for the cheese! This puts me over 1,000 calories for the day and I'm not even done adding all the ingredients of the noodle bake. Help! What am I doing wrong?..

L&G is supposed to provide 250-400 cals. The noodle bake has, what, about 400-430? So it is just on the higher end. Just don't do it every day and it should be fine...

Oh and p.s.... I usually use a lower fat mozz which is 60 cal/oz. That might help also...

Comment #2

Thanks Freedom! So does the lower fat mozzarella have a higher carb count? I'm having issues keeping under 1,000 calories even doing a stirfry...

Comment #3

There's no nutrition in those noodles. We're supposed to limit them to once or twice a week. Having them too often will hurt your losses...

Comment #4

If I had advice for you, I'd say since you know what the problem is, stop trying to fit it into your program. Ditch the Mozarella Noodle Bake. Your success may depend on it. Just a suggestion...

Comment #5

Personally, if I narrowed down what the problem was to one dish, I would set aside that ditch and re-visit it during transition/maintenance. It will still be there when you reach your goal...

Comment #6

I wouldn't say my problem was one dish-it's that I want to make sure what I am using fits into plan and also that I'm getting the correct ingredients...

Comment #7

If I'm going to have the green bean cheese bake lasagna thing, I use the 60 calorie an ounce cheese and on that day I always have at least three of the Medifast meals that only have 90 calories. I like it a lot but I definitely adjust the rest of my day to make room for it.

I also do it no more than once a week. It definitely affects my numbers for the day and I'm more interested in the weight loss than in how good the food tastes...

Comment #8

Also, you may want to rethink using maintenance bars now. They are way higher calorie than crunch bars. Maybe save them for actual maintenance...

Comment #9

You are always going to lose slower when you are eating cheese. It's just the nature of it. So if you'd like to keep the dish, you will need to resign yourself to slower losses. It is entirely up to you, of course...

Comment #10

Kb, I wouldnt say that is universally true. As long as your overall daily numbers are good, there is nothing inherent in cheese that slows losses. Some of my biggest loss weeks (4-5 pounds) have been when I was eating cauliflower pizza and Caprese stacks as L&Gs...

Comment #11

I'm just glad your back's ok. I wondered if the noodles were really heavy..

Comment #12

Actually, pre-shredded cheese is coated in flour/cornstarch and does contain a small amount of carbs. The coating is to keep the shreds from sticking together..

Buy block cheese and shred your own (I use a food processor for this). For softer cheese like mozz, it helps to freeze it first. This way you'll know there are no carbs...

Comment #13

I can't believe this thread got this far without anyone saying anything! LOL.

AngelDaae.... good advice on the cheese!..

Comment #14

Oh Sorry...I must have miss read the opening post. I thought you literally traced it to that dish...

Comment #15

My no loss week probably had more to do with my generous snack servings... So, I'm trying to tighten up my calorie count and hopefully do better than last week!..
