I just started Medifast last week, so I'm still getting used to what to eat!.

So this is an example of what I eat for my L and G:.

2 1/2 c. lettuce.

1/4 c. green peppers.

1 T. parm. cheese.

5 black olives.

5-6 slices of jalapeno pepper.

2 T. Lite Ranch dressing.

7 oz grilled chicken.

The chicken is 0.5 grams of fat per 4 oz, so I put it in the leanestcolumnIs that ok?.

What aboutt the rest? I figured the cheese and jal. peppers as condiments, and the olives and dressing as the two fat servings..

And sometimes I add 1/2 oz feta cheese and only eat 6 oz chicken..

Am I doing ok???????????????.

Thanks so much!.

It looks fine, except that chicken is lean, not leanest. Just so that you know..

I'd also probably count the jalapeno as part of your green (just reduce your lettuce a bit).

Also, I'd start logging all of your food on here (under the My Plan tab) so you can see just how many calories/carbs/fat you are eating as well. It's really helpful...

One more thing I'd check is the carb count on your "lite" dressing. A lot of the non-fat and low-fat items substitute sugar/sucrose/corn syrup for the missing fat, so you could be adding a bunch of carbs without knowing it. Just compare the labels between a regular dressing and a low-fat one. Carbs thru the roof!..

Great advice- especially to log it all and let the Medifast computer tell you how it looks. I did notice that your chicken is one ounce over- it's in the lean column so you only get six ounces. unless it's been changed which has been known to happen! the whole thing sounds yummy too!..

The reason why I put the chicken in the leanest was because the info I got when I ordered said this.

Leanestunder 6 grams of fat per serving.

Leaner6-9 grams of fat per serving.

Leanover 9 grams of fat per serving.

And since the chicken I use is 1/2 gram of fat per serving, I thought it would be in the under 6 grams of fat per serving category.

Ok so now I'm really confused!..

Ok, well, I just use plain old regular chicken breasts for my chicken. Maybe you have some super lowfat chicken stuff there?.

I'd say if it's really that low in fat, it's superlean, so yeah, put it in the leanest column..

Or ask Nutrisystem where it should go and give them the info...

They're chicken tenderloins from Super Center Walmart0.5 grams of fat and 90 calories per 4 least that's what the nutritional info on the bag says!..
