Valentine's Dinner - On plan (almost!)

For Valentine's Day we normally do dinner, roses, and a big box of Godiva chocolates. However, this year we're really serious about losing weight and staying on plan, so we modified things.

First, the dinner plan: We did 5 Medifast meals, as usual, and the Lean and Green. The Lean and Green was the key though, to feeling like a Valentine's Day dinner.


  • 5 oz Filet Mignon, Medium Rare
  • 7 oz Saltwater Scallops, pan-seared


  • 2 cups French Cut green beans, steamed then lightly sauteed in a teaspoon of sesame oil
  • 1 cup sliced White Mushrooms, sauteed in gourmet steak sauce
  • 1 cup Romaine Lettuce with light Ranch Dressing.


  • 4 Dark Chocolate dipped Strawberries
2 Strawberries... 93 grams, for about 130 calories and 8g of carbs!

My wife had the salad, green beans, and filet, while I had the mushrooms, green beans, and scallops. We each had 2 strawberries.

Even with the off-plan strawberries, I came in under 100g of carbs and in a decent spot on calories, fat, and protein. Combined with an hour at the gym for 30 minutes of weights and 30 minutes of cardio, I think the day worked out well. I woke up this morning  down a couple of tenths of a pound, which is good enough considering it was a day after a strength workout.
