Why I Switched from Weight Watchers to Medifast

What Makes Nutrisystem Different

Medifast: Reviews and Costs – 2018
With my job, unfortunately, I can't go to a trainer and some physical issue limit me right now on what I can do training wise. They have facebook groups you can belong to for encouragement, new recipes, a free nurse and dietician line and even more accountability and motivation. Of course, once we got "off" it we managed to regain much of it. The whole summer thing took me by surprise. Nutrisystem menu features more than items. A friend at work lost a lot of weight using Medifast and it's transformed her life--she even just went platinum blonde and is still slender after transitioning to mainly real food again--in her early 60s.

Other diets have left me so hungry I could eat a horse. I have tried Weight Watchers , Nutrisystem , and working with a nutritionist. I was hungry all the time and although I lost weight, I gained it back. I started Take Shape for Life one week ago. I have had minimal hunger a couple of times the first couple of days, but none the last 5.

I have lost 6 pounds so far. The workbook and text book that come with the program are incredible. The variety of food is limited but OK.

Stick to it and it definately works. No, Jayne, maintenance is not hard. We all know that losing the weight is only half the battle. You need to change the way you think about food in order to keep it off, and you do that while in the weight loss phase of the program.

I have been on the program for exactly 14 weeks and have lost 60 pounds! Six months ago, my cholesterol level was That was after taking cholesterol medicine for 18 years!

At that time, I had been on this program for only 13 weeks. My doctor was amazed. I have decided to learn all I can about Take Shape For Life, become a health coach, and help others regain their health.

Is this a bad thing! In my many years at IBM no one ever helped me like this. Mike Great to see your success, I would like to chat via email.

Would like very much to get your imput. Andrew from Cape May NJ. My coach is great. I figured that she was making money every time I purchased food, but who cares? I finally found something that works for me. And I agree with Carmel. I will eat cal over the period of 1 day though. I started 2 weeks ago and I have lost 12 lbs. I am steadily become healthier, happier and yes by helping others do the same, more financially stable.

Dave, I am not sure where you received your information. You can absolutely change your health coach — anyone can at any time. If you had done your research, you would see that this company does not fit the definition of an MLM at all — no requirement to sign up anyone, no inventory, no wholesale pricing to coaches, and much more.

Coaches simply get compensated for coaching people on the program. They are not selling anything. I lost 70 pounds last year and have kept the weight off. Send me a message if you are interested in this program. I would be interested in communicating to you about the TSFL program. I have lots of questions and not sure where to go for answers. Hi Melissa, I just started the medifast plan on monday.

I am feeling a bit light headed at times…. If you continue to have these side effects, please consult with your physician before continuing this weight loss program.

Theresa, This is normal. You have completely changed your eating habits. You are now intaking less calories, less sugars and less carbs! So your body is sort of detoxing. Hang in there, the light-headedness will soon come to an end! I have a married couple that are health coaches together. Is there a trick or a recipe that someone has to get me thru these boxes? My next order will be custom, so I can eliminate it all together!

But until then I need your help!! I was just talking to my friend about this today. Find it in the soup aisle, in a jar and is like a paste. I mix my stew with water and 1 tsp. I mix all my soups with water and let sit overnight in fridge, since they are freeze dried, they need some time to absorb the liquid. Hi — today is my first day using my new medifast products…..

I saw a recipe for toco salad using low fat ground beef or ground turkey. Mix lettuce, tomato, gr onion. Top with salsa which is allowed. Add toco seasoning to cooking beef. Top salad mixture with beef and enjoy. I make a wonderful Toco Salad using Thousand Island dressing. I wonder if you could add a little fat free Thousand Island to the salsa?

I has some left in the freezer. I like Kraft Free Zesty Italian. I also use it as a baste for chicken. Anyone have that recipe? My husband has lost about a hundred miles and I have helped. The pie sounds great. I have several recipes and I am perfected a couple of these, but he is eager for a new treat.

Thank you, Thank you!! I put about 2 cups of water in a four cup pyrex measure, add 1 pk. This also helps get in some more of my oz of daily water: If you use the stick blender to make frozen soft-serve it will double in volume. The stick blender is a big deal with this eating plan. Thanks for the idea- my soft serve never comes out right but I have a few packets left — now I have a new way to try them! I am on day 2 and tried the peach iced tea, I do not like it at all. Any ideas to make it taste better?

I took the peach tea and drank it warm, it reminds me of a peach cobbler juice warm out of the oven, just no peaches or dough!! I started Medifast 5 weeks ago after deciding my weight loss from gastric bypass had stopped and I need to loss more!

I lost lbs from the bypass and maintained the loss for 10 years, but need to lose about more….. Being a chemist means my kitchen often looks like a lab when making some of my meals!

I like to make up a lot of shakes and puddings using different flavorings and freeze them. Irish cream- Dutch Choc. Can be frozen in sealed plastic glass for later…take out and let sit for 1 hr. Butterscotch — 1 pkg. Remove from freezer 1 hour before serving and it is like eating a pudding pop!!!

Where do you find Walden Farms. I live in a smallish town and have not found it. We also find Walden Farms items at Fred Meyer in our town. I have also found a few Walden Farms items at a Super Walmart. The only place I can find the Marshmallow dip, which we add a spoonful to our shakes to make it thicker, is at Fred Meyer. I think you may also be able to order these items online thru Walden Farms.

Does walden farms count as a condiment or a healthy fat if it is fat and carb and everything free?? They also have Italian and Ranch sprays. This is also my favorite salad dressing.

Aloha from Michael and Lorelei on Maui!!!! Michael has just lost an amazing 54lbs. But check back often on the site because we will have more videos and blogs coming up…All of our posts over the last year can be found on facebook on Lorelei Williams..

I have been on Medifast for 8 weeks and have lost 21 lbs. I was getting Hungary for good old fashioned hamburger casserole. I made my family the draditional pasta casserole and here is what I did for me. It was great and took care of my craving. Add all ingredient together in medium fry pan.

Cook until broccoli is tender. Add 1pkg tofu pasta. Cook until heated through. Dark chocolate shake is good with a teaspoon of instant decaf coffee, ice cubes and water blended in a small blender. Crusty Chicken I rolled the new Medifast chese pizza bites in the bag before I opened it. I used 4 oz of chicken that I dipped in one beaten egg. Then I dipped the chicken in the pizza crumbs.

I sprayed the pan with Pam and cooked for 3 minutes per side. I threw away the extra egg, but put the few crumbs left on top while cooking. I ate this with a serving of canned green beans as a contrast to the spicy chicken. I have only been on medifast 11 days and am very happy with m loss of 11 pds. I will be checking hee often for ideas. I have been on MF for a month and love it. Anyone has a similiar experience or thoughts on how to make it better?

This is a great site. I need some kind of recipe for turkey burgers, of course without the bun. I just have to say thank you to everyone here. But this website made me feel so much better. I hear and hope it gets easier with time! But now I have some great ideas on what to do with the oatmeal and tons of other stuff! I am almost done with my second week of Medifast and I have to say, so far so good! I am happy I found this website with so many great ways to make the food more satisfying!!

I found the chocolate chip pancakes to be pretty bad…. I add a few walnuts to my pancakes and just a tiny drizzle of honey obviously try not to do that too often but it does make it taste better … YUMMM! I too hated the chocolate chip pancakes but the walnuts made them taste much better… Just a small amount though becuase of the increase in calories and fat.

Thanks for all the good ideas as I am just starting out and am having a difficult time enjoying the taste of many of the meals, as is. Any suggestions for when I have that chip craving? Lisa, have you tried Kale chips? Wash the Kale, pull the leaves from the stem and tear into bite-size pieces.

Dry with paper towels and put on baking pan in single layer. Spray with Butter Pam and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash or spice of your choice. Bake at degrees for 15 minutes. This gets a crunchy texture and Kale is sooo good for you. I love it that we r all in this together.

I am only on day 6 but I have lost 13 lbs and I love all the recipies and support on this site. Thanks for the ideas everyone and keep em conning! Im sure I will have some to share eventually too. My hubby and I started 1 week ago, and of course he has lost 8 lbs and I have lost 3 lbs.

One of our combined favs are Southwest eggs made as omelet with the Vegetarian sloppy joe as filler. We split it our course, and have a tsp of salsa on top. I am seeking out other combos such as this so please post what else you all are doing! Brand new to this Medifast thing—safely made it to Day 5 without cheating. My tips, so far, for any newbies are: Literally gagged them down with 20oz of water!! What is up with those things? Love the recipes on here…feel like this is pretty easy!

Sarah 84 days until Spring Break! I dip the honey mustard pretzels in various mustards.
