I lost 250 lbs on medifast back in 2006, and I've been on and off a variety of diets since then. To make a long story short, I need to re-lose about 80 lbs and have been trying to do it w/o medifast and am just not successful.
I have been doing some reading and I see people are doing the DietDirect stuff as cheaper replacements now. I saw their "BariWise" and "WonderSlim" shakes seemed to compare pretty well to medifast.
I wonder if I could just have 5 of these shakes per day + L&G? And that would be pretty much like doing medifast. They seem to be the same as far as the protein/fat/carbs/fiber/calories, but I can't tell if they vary much by the ingredients. Back when I originally did medifast (and I didn't even know what a calorie was), I was convinced that there was some magic chemical in the shakes that made you not hungry.
Thing is I can get 50 days worth of these for $325.
I don't care about variety, in fact when I did medifast, by the end of it I was just ordering 30 boxes worth of lattes.
They didn't have the regular bars when I had medifast. The bars were higher carb and you could only have one per day, the medifast folks always said they would kick you out of keto. Does anyone eat the bars prolifically (like 3 or more per day) and still do OK?
I am actually on a keto diet now, so I reckon it will be pretty easy to start medifast.
