Phase II - Realimentation

Phase 2 of the Protein Sparing Modified Fasting diet is called Realimentation. Once you are within 5 pounds of your goal weight, we will gradually reintroduce grocery foods back in to your diet under our professional supervision. This purpose of this 4-week process is to slowly increase calories and restore digestive functions from fasting mode back to their normal capacity. Upon starting Realimentation, you will receive a detailed packet with information on which foods you may eat from each food group and the correct portion sizes and calorie counts.

Week 1 - 5 meal replacements + protein, salad, and vegetable

Week 2 - 4 meal replacements + protein, salad, vegeatable, and fruit

Week 3 - 3 meal replacements + protein, salad, vegetable, fruit, and dairy

Week 4 - 2 meal replacements + protein, salad, vegetable, fruit, dairy, and starch

Metabolic Testing - at the end of week 4, we will conduct an impedence test and use an indirect calorimeter to measure your metabolism. From these tests, we will design an individualized meal plan that will let you know just how many calories you personally can consume each day and maintain your weight within 5 pounds. Dr. Morgan feels this information is vital to your success in maintenance! The customized meal plan will include foods that you like to prepare, eat, and shop for. Most of them also include your favorite meal replacements because they are so portable, affordable, and easy to prepare!
