is Medifast right for me?
Hi all, need some advice. I recently moved and my new apartment is located next door to a Medifast-type center, with a doctor who is paid by Medifast, so I would get his services for free and just pay for the food.
I have a meeting with the doctor this evening, but after doing a lot of research (this forum is incredibly helpful btw) I have some concerns.
Any diet that restricts fruit and some veggies sort of disturbs me. I eat fruit several times a day, and mixed veggies regularly. I'm honestly not sure I could handle not eating them. Pasta, alcohol, breads.. yes, these are to be expected on most diets. But I can't eat apples? Clementines? Bananas?
The food itself is another issue, my mom tried Nutrisystem a few years back and said the food was just inedible. I don't want to put forth all this cash on food that is just garbage. If that's the case, I'd rather just not eat and lose weight that way.
I have approximately 20 lbs to lose, with 30 being my "desired" loss. Do any of you have insight into whether this is right for me? Is it sustainable in the long run, or am I just going to gain it all back after transitioning back to normal foods?
