Packaged Meals and Clinics - Nutrisystem, Medifast, Jenny Craig, Etc - Meal Plans and Exercise (medifast, IP, etc...)

Okay, I know that I should pick a diet already. I've been losing on healthy eating, but I'd really like a mostly prepackaged plan. I'll be in college, so it would be really helpful.
I want results, and medifast/IP really seems to give them to people. But, I'd also really like to get in shape. I know that becomes a lot harder with medifast/IP because of the low calories.
Does anyone have any reccommendations of pre-packaged plans that get Medifast/IP worthy results but aren't hurt by exercise?
(I love this forum and all the support it gives, I seriously just lurk for hours and tear up at how everyone advocates for each other :carrot::hug::carrot:)

I started exercising 6 months before going on a diet. I did Medifast and continued to work out. I do Jillian Michaels. On Medifast I kept my calories around 1100-1200 to be on the safe side. I switched to IP and did the same, but IP was too low in carb for me, so I had to give it up. I think it is best not to do intense cardio in combination with any low carb diet. Strength is fine, though you may not build muscles, just maintain what you have. I did build some on Medifast, but I started from zero.

I hope you found your way to a good plan for you..I have been doing ITG Diet with a friend who was doing it while training for a marathon..she had to juggle what she ate and eat more food to accommodate her bodies energy needs but was able stick to the plan, lose and reach her goal. It gives me hope as I am fighting with my last 20 lbs and like to play tennis.

I started IP 2.5 weeks ago and have been exercising regularly. I exercised before starting the diet and was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to continue, but I've been fine! I've been doing my normal workouts (kickboxing, running, spin, circuit training classes, etc). My coach suggested having an extra shake for each day I work out, but I've noticed that I only need the extra shake if I'm doing a heavy strength workout or like a circuit training class. Good luck with whatever you decide!

I have been on the medifast plan for almost 2 weeks and next week I am starting to incorporate exercise. I went on a 4 mile hike felt pretty good on Tuesday. Definitely going to consider eating another meal or half of a lean extra to compensate for the workouts. Good luck!
