I am about to begin the Medifast diet starting this upcoming week. (wednesday will be the day).

I have been doing my best to limit my eating habits in order to prepare for this lifestyle change. I have lost 6 pounds in the last 3 weeks and I have been avoiding fast foods, junk food, having lean cuisines, choosing the healthiest options eating out and just generally eating healthier - and smaller - portions. I think my mind is conditioned (somewhat) to the change I'm about to make but still I'm looking for any tips or advice you all have to offer? I have been poring over weight loss blogs, Medifast tips and articles about the diet online but I still feel like I want more information on how the first couple of weeks go with this diet.

Thanks for reading. :hug:

Hi Paige! I started Medifast a couple months ago and blog about it every day. If you go to my January posts, there's a lot of anecdotal stuf about how I felt on a day to day basis... Feel free to check it out!

Hi Paige - I'm about to wrap up Day 3 (started Friday) and LOVE the program. I'm coming off of a very strict diet called Ideal Protein. MF offers so much more variety, support and more food/guidance. I am so happy that I made the change and surprisingly, it's actually fun.

Here are some tips that I've learned so far:

1. Are you on Instagram? If so, start searching for people to follow for inspiration: #tsfl

2. Purchase a blender if you don't have one. There are some shakes that you can blend, add ice, and put in the freezer for a cold treat.

3. Cut bars into bite sized pieces and put in freezer for when you are ready for your MF meal.

4. Don't eat more than 2 bars per day.

5. Journal and pre-plan.

You're going to love it! And don't forget to turn to all of us for support.

I am starting MF after being on Ideal Protein for 2 months. I am so hungry all the time on IP, and tired too. A friend of mine made the jump from IP to MF and is doing so well on it! My coach told me for breakfast I can do it for myself, an egg and 2 egg white omlette plus a small piece of whole grain toast. Toast! I'm giddy with excitement. I am glad to meet someone else on these boards who was formerly on IP!!

I just placed my first order for TSFL and about 2 mos ago I stopped doing Ideal Protein as well. I had lost 35 pounds before going on vacation and then I just couldn't get re-motivated. I'm hoping TSFL will be the motivation I need to finish losing the weight I need to take off.
