Medifast Recipes

The desserts and snacks were delicious. The dinners are done very nicely with foods that are very tasteful and full of flavor. The breakfasts were good I especially liked the pancakes. The lunches were also good. The thing I did not like about Nutrisystem was that the portions of foods they provided were too small.

The program is extremely easy to use. Any man can join the program and expect to lose weight easily. I joined the plan and Nutrisystem sent me dieting tools, instructions on how to use the plan and great tasting foods. I also have access to Nutrisystems website. The website includes chat rooms, blogs, and group discussions about dieting. The website is a great place for me to go to receive support. I have not felt this energetic in awhile. I now have the energy to get through the day without feeling so tired.

I even have enough energy to work out. Without the Nutrisystem plan I would still be overweight, unhealthy and unhappy.

Without Nutrisystem I would still be eating unhealthy and gaining weight instead of losing weight. I joined Nutrisystem two and a half months ago. When I first started the program it was an adjustment I had to get used to. I was used to overeating all of the time. With Nutrisystem the food portions are designed to be just right so a person gets the nutrition he needs and still loses weight.

I had to get used to eating the right sized portion instead of overeating. Once I adjusted to eating differently the plan started to really work. The plan is easy to follow and comes with instructions on how to do so. I am losing weight easily. I am feeling healthier every day.

I am enjoying the foods I am eating, and I am enjoying the compliments I am receiving on my weight loss. I joined the Nutrisystem plan because I knew I was headed in the wrong direction with my body weight.

I decided to start going to a gym. However, I did not know how to start eating right. I pick the food I want to eat from the menu that Nutrisystem provides. Nutrisystem also shows me how to plan what to eat for the day. The foods are really good. I love some of them, like most of them and only disliked one or two items out of the whole menu.

One of my favorite foods from Nutrisystem is their Mexican style tortilla soup, it's great. As far as diets go Nutrisystem is a great plan. When I was on the Nutrisystem plan it worked for me. I lost weight, learned to eat healthier and felt great. Nutrisystem is also extremely easy to follow. The plan comes with easy to follow instructions on how to use the program to work for you.

When I was on the plan my wife and children would eat their food while I ate my Nutrisystem food. Her food was hard to resist; however, I stuck to the Nutrisystem plan because their food also tastes good. I ate good food every day. Foods such as blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, honey mustard pretzel sticks, beef stew and broiled beef patties. Nutrisystem truly does go to great lengths to help make losing weight easy.

I wanted to lose 20 pounds, but ended up shaving off 30 pounds thanks to Nutrisystem. Nutrisystem is the best diet plan I have ever tried. I have tried to diet a few other times in my life but I could not stick to the diet. With Nutrisystem I do not have to learn recipes. I do not have to learn to eat better foods. I do not have to count calories.

I do not have to weigh food. With Nutrisystem all I have to do is follow the instructions and eat the foods Nutrisystem supplies. When I joined Nutrisystem I was afraid the food would taste terrible as I had read a review online saying so.

Of course there are a few foods that do not suit my taste such as the eggs frittata; however, most of the foods are delicious. For breakfast I can eat pancakes, blueberry pancakes, cinnamon buns or oatmeal. There are many other breakfast foods to choose from also. For lunch I can eat hearty minestrone soup or choose from many other menu items. Nutrisystem also offers great dinners, snacks and desserts. Following the Nutrisystem plan is easy and I am seeing results.

I wish the weight melted off easier, but it took a while putting it on and so I expect it'll take time getting it off too. I had tried losing weight on my own a few times but it was too hard to count calories and weigh out all of my food what a time sucker!

I always got discouraged about losing the weight. With Nutrisystem I have not became discouraged because Nutrisystem makes the plan so simple to follow. While it's not fresh food the meals are frozen , it still just as great tasting. Speaking frankly, I was really afraid that I would hate the Nutrisystem food. I gave the food a try thinking it would taste like cardboard. However, I was completely wrong, the Nutrisystem food is delicious. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and all my snacks provided by Nutrisystem are tasty.

My wife loves me being on the Nutrisystem diet too. She is very impressed with the progress I have made losing weight. She just makes dinner for the family and I eat my Nutrisystem meal. Nutrisystem is a great diet plan that I personally think can help anyone lose weight. Let's be honest here, does any man like to cook? Not only do I not like to cook, I just don't have the time to cook. That's why Nutrisystem really appealed to me when my doctor recommended it. I am a busy man who works 80 hours a week.

I am also single. I just don't know how to cook, so I eat fast food quite often. I also eat at restaurants often too. The reason I go out to eat so often is because I am single, busy and do not know how to cook. Going out to eat is just easier than learning how to cook.

But eating out is expensive and has caused me to quickly add on 30 pounds that I no longer wanted. I thought if I pay to go out to eat everyday I might as well pay to eat this healthy food and lose some weight. The best part of the Nutrisystem plan is that I do not have to prepare the food and it still tastes great. I am losing weight eating healthy delicious foods. I'm happy and so is my doctor who was telling me I needed to lose weight.

I have lost nine pounds since I started the diet. With Nutrisystem you get to chose from many foods that are already prepared for you.

You also get a daily menu planner and a diary to log your success in. Nutrisystem also provides a website that includes articles, weight loss stories, blogs, chat rooms and a live counselor who is available 24 hours a day for support. With the Nutrisystem plan I go online everyday and log onto Nutrisystems website to see my progress. I also check the discussion group forums and talk to other men who are trying to lose weight. I enjoy using the Nutrisystem web site. The Nutrisystem plan is so simple to follow.

I really can not think of any other diet plan that is as simple to use as Nutrisystem. The food Nutrisystem offers is also excellent. My favorite food from Nutrisystem is the beef stew.

I love beef stew and I would not want to give it up for a diet. However, with Nutrisystem I do not have to give up beef stew because Nutrisystem offers a beef stew dinner. I have been on the plan for about one month now and have alreasy lost seven pounds which wasn't happening with Bistro MD. I'm happy to say that losing weight has never been easier. The Nutrisystem plan is very easy to follow and simple to understand.

The website is wonderful. I can log on and talk to other people from all over the world who are trying to lose weight.

I threw away the extra egg, but put the few crumbs left on top while cooking. I ate this with a serving of canned green beans as a contrast to the spicy chicken.

I have only been on medifast 11 days and am very happy with m loss of 11 pds. I will be checking hee often for ideas. I have been on MF for a month and love it. Anyone has a similiar experience or thoughts on how to make it better? This is a great site. I need some kind of recipe for turkey burgers, of course without the bun.

I just have to say thank you to everyone here. But this website made me feel so much better. I hear and hope it gets easier with time! But now I have some great ideas on what to do with the oatmeal and tons of other stuff!

I am almost done with my second week of Medifast and I have to say, so far so good! I am happy I found this website with so many great ways to make the food more satisfying!!

I found the chocolate chip pancakes to be pretty bad…. I add a few walnuts to my pancakes and just a tiny drizzle of honey obviously try not to do that too often but it does make it taste better … YUMMM! I too hated the chocolate chip pancakes but the walnuts made them taste much better… Just a small amount though becuase of the increase in calories and fat. Thanks for all the good ideas as I am just starting out and am having a difficult time enjoying the taste of many of the meals, as is.

Any suggestions for when I have that chip craving? Lisa, have you tried Kale chips? Wash the Kale, pull the leaves from the stem and tear into bite-size pieces. Dry with paper towels and put on baking pan in single layer. Spray with Butter Pam and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash or spice of your choice. Bake at degrees for 15 minutes. This gets a crunchy texture and Kale is sooo good for you. I love it that we r all in this together. I am only on day 6 but I have lost 13 lbs and I love all the recipies and support on this site.

Thanks for the ideas everyone and keep em conning! Im sure I will have some to share eventually too. My hubby and I started 1 week ago, and of course he has lost 8 lbs and I have lost 3 lbs. One of our combined favs are Southwest eggs made as omelet with the Vegetarian sloppy joe as filler. We split it our course, and have a tsp of salsa on top. I am seeking out other combos such as this so please post what else you all are doing! Brand new to this Medifast thing—safely made it to Day 5 without cheating.

My tips, so far, for any newbies are: Literally gagged them down with 20oz of water!! What is up with those things? Love the recipes on here…feel like this is pretty easy! Sarah 84 days until Spring Break! I dip the honey mustard pretzels in various mustards. My favorite is a deli style horseradish mustard. Hi Everyone, I have been on Medifast for a week now and I lost 7 lbs!

It was hard at first but am getting use to it. I am glad to be able to have ideas on how to use the Medifast packets to make something different to eat. Good luck to everyone who is on Medifast! The smell is also horrendous. Any recipe ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! I add the following ingredients to the eggs: Makes all the difference in the world!

Best advice I can give is to cook on the stove in a small frying pan MUCH better that when you cook in the microwave. Added some onion powder which also helped. Mix eggs with water and let them soak for a while. Take out the veggies and cook the eggs; then add the veggies back in. Some salsa helps, too. I add a half serving of egg beaters, try the southwestern. You can also add chopped red pepper and onion to just medifast serving.

Always do scrambled, never microwave, use Pam and scramble in fry pan. Hi, I know this is a bit late, but I use Mrs. Add it before you put it in the microwave. This is my 5th day on MF. I did the eggs according to directions, added 1 tbsp. Drop this bag into a pot of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes. You can use the salsa on top of the cooked omelet.

If you are craving for a pasta, there is a shirataki noodle that is 20 calories, no-oodle noodle and miracle noodle with no calories. That can be your free food. You can also use the tomato soup for a sauce, diced some tomatoes and blend it and add ground meat.

I am soooo excited to get started on this program. Since I am going to be in my first week, can I use these variations right away or do I need to wait until my body starts adjusting? I know my TSFL coach told me to try to stick to the program very strictly to see the desired results.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice! Just finished week 3 and have lost 10 lbs. I am a bit of a food snob, so this has been difficult. I am not a fan of the oatmeal or soups, at all….

I did accidentally find that the cappucino is better cold than hot. I filled my shaker with water to make a shake and acidentally added a cappucino instead of a shake mix. Its a little quirky and foamy after shaking at first…. When I fixed it hot, half of it foamed and overflowed and the fiber was very noticable and gave it a sludgy consistency. Any suggestions for the oatmeal or soups? The consistency of the oatmeal was awful and the taste not much better. I like chicken and veg stir fry or a big veg omlette for lean and green.

I use the egg beaters and it is a big serving of eggs. The chicken and veggie omlette filled up a regular dinner plate. Many fast food places have a grilled chx salad with mixed greens, cucumber and a few tomatoes. Just watch out for added bacon and cheese and be sure to use you own dressing or read the dressing labels before using it…the majority are not good for you. I also have made a home-ade chili with ground turkey or chicken, low salt canned diced tomato, onion, green chilis or bell pepper, a little water and a bit of taco seasoning or add your own seasoning.

Would also be good with frozen veg meat substitute crumbles…just be sure to check labels for other carb filler additives and carb counts. I added cocoa powder and coffee for a great treat. Oz today he talked about teas that help with wt. He specifically mentioned Pu-ehr tea that shrinks fat cells, he recommended 2 cups in the morning, White tea, 2 cups at lunch that boosts metabolism, and Chickweed tea, 1 cup with early dinner for late night appetite suppression.

He also talked about coconut palm sugar that regulates glycemic index without highs and lows that cause cravings and fat storage. It is used 1: Used my kruerig using my StarBucks house Blend and made a cup of coffee. I let it cool to room temp and then mixed it with one Truvia and a cappucino packet with the mixer jar with the ball in it.

No weird texture no protein lumps! Any suggestion for Green sides? My mom suggested a coliflower garlic mash, like mashed patatos and it was great. Any help would be great thanks! Preheat oven to Coat cauliflower in olive oil or pam Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic Place on cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper as liner Cook about minutes.

Take out and coat with the balsamic vinegar add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese if you want Put back on sheet and cook about another 10 minutes until dry. I love the chai latte. The trick to making the hot drinks is to heat the water separately first. Put the mix into a mug. Add about a Tablespoon of the heated water and stir into a paste with a whisk.
