The Medifast diet plan is probably one of the more popular diet delivery programs out there, but if you are only considering this diet for the first time, you might be wondering how well their plan will work for you. With any luck I can help you figure that out.
Medifast is designed to be a very low calorie diet, but still one that meets all of your nutritional needs for the day. It does this with its meal replacements that are available as protein bars, diet shakes, puddings and other foods that are fortified with additional nutrients, such as their oatmeal. You won’t just be eating the packaged food however. Each day you also make your lean and green meal that consists of fresh veggies and high quality lean proteins.
In my opinion, the primary reason that Medifast works so well is that it isn’t solely low calorie. It also happens to be low in carbs and higher in protein. Because you aren’t consuming so many starchy foods, your craving for more foods of that type is naturally reduced. In fact, if you follow Medifast for at least a few days, your hunger will probably disappear and you won’t even feel like you are on a diet.
Another great factor that helps you achieve success with their program is that, except for your lean and green meals, you can forget about meal planning. Just keep track of how many packets you eat per day (five) and make sure you have some salad and lean protein on hand for your evening meal and you are all set. For dieters who don’t use meal replacements, you need to be thinking about food between 3-5 times a day, trying to figure out what to eat!
Of course, eventually you’ll be done with Medifast and will need to start think about meal planning again. But when you are actively dieting, it really helps a lot if you don’t have to be worrying about meal prep constantly. This is especially true if you are a bit of a food addict.
