Medifast Newbie
Hi Everyone!! I started on Medifast 7 days ago and so far i'm loving the 5-1 plan. I'd really like some advice from some Medifast vets if possible.

The past couple days i'm finding myself only wanting to eat 4 of the Medifast meals, and my one lean and green instead of the full 5. After that i'm completely full! Is it detrimental to the program to not have that last Medifast meal?? Currently i'm eating every 2-3 hours starting at 8am, and have my lean and green around 7pm when I get home from work. After that i'm not hungry at all for the rest of the night, and end up in bed by 10pm most nights. I'm drinking on average 100oz-128oz of water a day.

Thanks for the help!

I am not on Medifast, but I want to congratulate on doing so well. Have you lost almost 20 pounds in one week?

I wish! No I lost about 5lbs this week. Before I was on weight watchers and lost 15lbs in three weeks but was having trouble sticking with that program so my dr suggested Medifast because she's on it and so far so good.

The nutritionists do say it is detrimental to skip any part of the plan. The doctors came up with the numbers for calories, carbs, fiber, fat, protein, and vitamins and if you regularly skip a meal it can actually stall your weight loss. Some of the Medifast meals are such a tiny volume, like the soft bake cookie (you can just eat the dough, it is about 2 tablespoons) or have one of the drinks. If it is a time issue it is better to have 2 Medifast meals at once than to skip one.

Thank you for the info!!! I definitely realized skipping a meal was a bad idea after I gained a pound after skippy one meal two days in a row. Just started week 3 and I'm down almost 8lbs! Woo hoo :)

Colleen, I just started this week. To me eating every two hours or so is great. Keeps my metabolisom going.
I make sure to take my pretzels, bars , in my purse so that if I am out when I should have my "meal" I have it handy and do not go through mcdonalds or wendys for something I should not have.
I also carry my green tea with me .
Here is to success to all of us.

I'm a Newbie to the site, but I've been using Medifast since the beginning of September 2014. Anyone else around here using Medifast???

I've been using it since the end of August. I've lost 24 pounds and am really happy with the program and the food. Really easy to stay on plan.

Sue. :)

Yes you're right. It is really easy to do this plan. Check in again. I'd like to know your progress.
