(Bars left to right - S'mores, Caramel Crunch, Cookie Dough and Lemon Meringue)There are a plethora of weight loss programs out there. Equally as such, there will always be both positive and negative reviews. Prior to joining the Medifast Go diet plan, I wasn't exactly sure how it worked. Obviously I knew you ate their food, and I saw an abundance of amazing before and after photos, but I still wasn't entirely sure what to expect. Now 4 weeks in and I have a good handle on how it works.
Getting Started with Medifast:Select your food. It's not all meal bars (although the above photo of them are some of my faves.) For a 30 day supply on Medifast Go, you select 22 boxes of Medifast Meals and 5 boxes of Flavors of Home. There are 7 meals per box. The meal boxes are the foods you will eat 5 times per day, and Flavors of Home are your one "lean and green meal." The lean and green meal contains protein and your 3 servings of veggies. Right now my two faves are Chicken and Rice and Beef Stew. Your lean and green meal does not need to be dinner. If you want to eat it for lunch, you can, and just eat one of the Medifast Meals for dinner. As for the regular meals, these consist of bars, chocolate chip pancakes, cereal, Gingerbread Soft Bake, shakes and ready-to-go drinks, meal options like Beef Soup, Vegetable Chili, and Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and then "snacks" like BBQ Bites and Cinnamon Pretzel Sticks. There's obviously a lot more to choose from, so you have a lot of options and diversity. The great thing about all of the meals is that they are nutritionally all the same (except Flavors of Home.) The same calories, protein, vitamins and minerals and all are low in fat. That means you can eat oatmeal at lunch or for your mid-afternoon snack, or if you're feeling that sweet tooth earlier in the day, the Caramel Crunch Bar is perfect. Oh and least I forget one of the additional items I discovered - their Flavor Enhancers! You need to increase your water intake and if you are anything like me, you're like no thanks, because water is meh. I usually add a freshly cut lemon slice, but started using the Calorie Burn Mixed Berry Flavor Infuser. OMG so good! There's been a definite increase in my water consumption since I started using it. 21 packets come in each box.
