I started the first also! A good friend (now my Lifestyle Coach) lost 57 pds. In 6 months, which was a good testimonial. Hoping to find a list of what brand name foods can be used for lean and green so I am not eating the same stuff all the time. I hate to cook, so the "5" MF products work well, just having the same lean and green all the time. I am not a fan of a few of the soups I've had...

Welcome both of you!

I'm not new to Medifast at all - I've been at it since April. I am getting back on the plan full-time after several weekends of cheating over the holidays. My birthday was New Year's Eve, and I went out of town and partied like a rock star. Happily, I still LOST weight all along, just not as much as I could have.

My favorite lean & greens are pretty simple -
grilled steak/tuna steak/swordfish/salmon over spinach salad
3 egg omelette with whatever veggies I have on hand
3 pickled eggs over salad
turkey meatloaf stuffed with spinach
chicken soup made with fresh salsa and lots of green peppers

My new favorite is a tofu veggie soup I make in my Vitamix blender - 2 cups broth, 1 brick tofu, seasonings, 1 1/2 tsp corn starch and 1 box thawed frozen spinach or 1 jar drained roasted red peppers or 1 container baby bellas - dump it in the Vitamix, blend on high for 8 minutes and dinner is ready!

Good luck to you both! This is the longest I've ever stuck to a program, and I'm still motivated to keep going!

Hi everyone, I've been on medifast for 6 months and I'm down 65 pounds If you're looking for good recipe/meal ideas, Lyn's blog is fantastic, and I use Sandy's Kitchen (google it and click the light recipes one...I can't post links yet!) the medifast recipe section. Some really great ideas to keep from getting bored with the l&g and also the meals themselves.

Give yourself some time to adjust to the new foods, you'll find your tastes will change over time. Welcome!!!!

You are not the only one... actually I have never been able to prepare the soft serve food packets in a manner that is acceptable that is not a shake... and I have tried. It may be that I have no good way to make fine-ground ice.

I decided that making the soft serve as a soft serve was just more work than it was worth. They do make nice thick shakes, though. Try a little cocoa powder in the peanut butter - Reese's shake!
