INTRO NUMBER ONE: The Dr Phil Effect.
Also, be sure to check my collection of Medifast Recipes Videos. And I have never looked back. Keep on sharing, please. This program does not abandon you once you've reached your goal. I have attended the TSFL meeting that was held locally - it is so much fun to hear the passion that people have to tell how losing weight has changed their life. My wife and daughters even enjoyed them and could barely tell the difference.
I like to make up a lot of shakes and puddings using different flavorings and freeze them. Irish cream- Dutch Choc. Can be frozen in sealed plastic glass for later…take out and let sit for 1 hr. Butterscotch — 1 pkg. Remove from freezer 1 hour before serving and it is like eating a pudding pop!!! Where do you find Walden Farms. I live in a smallish town and have not found it. We also find Walden Farms items at Fred Meyer in our town.
I have also found a few Walden Farms items at a Super Walmart. The only place I can find the Marshmallow dip, which we add a spoonful to our shakes to make it thicker, is at Fred Meyer. I think you may also be able to order these items online thru Walden Farms. Does walden farms count as a condiment or a healthy fat if it is fat and carb and everything free?? They also have Italian and Ranch sprays.
This is also my favorite salad dressing. Aloha from Michael and Lorelei on Maui!!!! Michael has just lost an amazing 54lbs. But check back often on the site because we will have more videos and blogs coming up…All of our posts over the last year can be found on facebook on Lorelei Williams.. I have been on Medifast for 8 weeks and have lost 21 lbs. I was getting Hungary for good old fashioned hamburger casserole. I made my family the draditional pasta casserole and here is what I did for me. It was great and took care of my craving.
Add all ingredient together in medium fry pan. Cook until broccoli is tender. Add 1pkg tofu pasta. Cook until heated through. Dark chocolate shake is good with a teaspoon of instant decaf coffee, ice cubes and water blended in a small blender. Crusty Chicken I rolled the new Medifast chese pizza bites in the bag before I opened it.
I used 4 oz of chicken that I dipped in one beaten egg. Then I dipped the chicken in the pizza crumbs. I sprayed the pan with Pam and cooked for 3 minutes per side. 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. My family loves the Keto Friendly Easy Bacon Cheeseburger soup recipe and I totally intended on making that recipe when I took hamburger out for dinner but I wanted a little something I could sink my teeth into.
Do you feel that way? I placed the ingredients on the counter to start dinner. The thought of my low carb pancakes was on my mind for some reason. I use coconut flour in the pancake recipe, so I could probably use it in a casserole, right? I mean, why not? I was on a mission to create a casserole dish! My mind was made up! If the recipe makes it to a blog post, then it was definitely a hit! Thank goodness because my family was ready that cheeseburger soup.
I really should start a section here on the blog for all my failed recipes. Start by cooking the hamburger meat first. Be sure to add the minced garlic and onion powder while you are frying it.
This will give the ground beef a good amount of flavor. Just look how I am about to measure out my minced onion! The typical measuring spoons would never help in big jars like this. After this arrived I went to the website and had a hard time deciding what to make since they all look good and easy. I made the sausage balls and I can't believe how good they are.
There is a slightly different taste than regular mix but it is negligible. My wife and daughters even enjoyed them and could barely tell the difference. You need to get creative with the flavor.. The best way to make biscuits so that they rise is to use a mixer with a bread hook. Add 2 cups of carbquick, half tsp baking powder, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and about 1 cup of milk or half heavy cream and half water. If it's too dry when mixing add a little more. It will look and feel like dough you don't want it to feel sticky and it shouldn't stick to your hands much.
If it is sticky add a little more carbquick. Roll it out after you mix it for about minutes or when it looks and feels like dough. Then cut with a biscuit cutter and bake for 8ish minutes or till they look done.. Sometimes I add a little melted butter on top before baking them. Or add a little garlic powder to the mix. It took lots of tweaking and practice to get the recipe right!! We love this product.
We don't feel that way anymore, because we can have bread when we want it. For hungry low-carb dieters and diabetics that want bread goods and want them NOW, this stuff is a god-send. We've made biscuits, waffles, and pancakes and we've been very happy with the results.
For those of you that don't like cottage cheese, just trust me on this one. There isn't a cheese flavor or anything like that. You'd never know it was in there, and it really makes them feel more like "regular" pancakes.
Absolutely love this flour. My husband and I are living a low carb lifestyle and this just makes it so easy for us to stay on track. In the last two weeks, I have made a turkey pot pie, a pizza crust, breaded deep fried perch, cheese biscuits, sausage biscuits and gravy, and buttermilk biscuits, and we loved everything we have made with it.
Awesome that we can stick to our low carb diets and still treat ourselves. This stuff is awesome. The box is full of inspiring recipes on the back AND both insides. My Keto friends kept telling me eventually I'd break down and try those egg substitute biscuits but I know it was never going to taste or feel like a wheat product. LOL, after 10 days with none at all it tasted pretty darn perfect to me! All the recipes run between net carbs and are a decent size If only we could all get together and force these guys to do the same for pasta!
One person found this helpful. A delicious and healthy alternative to Bisquick. I use this mostly for making high fiber, low carb pizza.
For anyone on a low carb diet desperate for pizza, this is perfect to curb the craving. I usually make a double batch of the pizza crust recipe listed on the back, which makes approximately a 16" pizza. This crust is more filling that normal pizza crust, so note that you'll have leftovers if cooking for one. I recommend that you really stretch the dough thin as it does rise a good bit.
I par-bake the crust at the temperature listed for about 5 minutes, then I add the sauce. I found this works better than adding sauce from the beginning as to avoid a soggy crust. Sometimes I'll add butter to the crust at the 5 minute point, which soaks in and compliments the biscuit-y crust nicely.
