The answer depends on whom you ask.
I personally think Medifast food tastes good enough. And I'm pretty picky about my food. Though not a certified foodie (i.e., I don't photograph all my meals, grind my own spices or drive 60 miles to dine at the latest "it" restaurant), I love food and appreciate the melding of ingredients that flavor a great recipe.
Medifast foods are not in that category. They are utilitarian in that they serve a purpose -- to melt off stubborn fat -- like the hidden picture fastener that secures a piece of art to a wall.
If the food was terrible, I could not eat it. That is why I had to abandon my Nutrisystem diet several years ago.
If the food was fantastic, I would want to eat too much of it.
Like a dieting Goldilocks, I have found Medifast food to be "just right" in flavor and texture. And the longer I have been consuming the company's replacement meals, the more I seem to like them. My taste buds have adjusted to their flavor to the point where I sometimes find myself craving a particular food.

not too flavorful, not too horrible.
What's funny is that you could ask a dozen different Medifast dieters what their favorite meal is and get a dozen different answers. Ditto for the most horrible tasting meal. With more than 70 options, you are bound to find at least a handful of meals that are palatable and allow you to comply with the plan.
My personal favorites are the chocolate chip and brownie soft bakes (which I prepare in a variety of ways) the ziti marinara, the peanut butter chocolate chip chewy bar, and the two varieties of chicken soup. Others swear by the crunchy bars, the smoothies, the oatmeals, the bites and puffs, or the puddings.
Make no mistake: Medifast meals are not Le Cordon Bleu. They are good enough, however, to satisfy most people's taste buds and bid adieu to unwanted pounds.
You can purchase Medifast replacement meals directly from Medifast Centers, the Medifast website or -- for no extra cost -- through the co-branded website of a Medifast TSFL health coach. Medifast does not recommend purchasing its products from third party vendors, but if you choose to do so, you can find them on both Amazon and eBay.
