The nice thing about Medifast is you DO get to cook and eat dinner with your family! You eat 5 Medifast meals (shakes or whichever ones you want) during the day and then one "real" meal with family. So I make the usual, and just have my portion without carbs. For example:
tacos in tortillas with all the toppings for the kids, but I have my taco meat on a big salad
(low carb) meatloaf and mashed potatoes for the kids, but I have mine with mashed cauliflower or steamed broccoli
low carb spaghetti squash and turkey Italian sausages... kids have it over pasta and I have it over spaghetti squash
baked chicken with green beans, and the kids get some brown rice with theirs.
Lost 103 pounds, regained 60+, taking it off again.
