|Counting points and calories can be tedious, |
even if you have an app for that.
The five replacement meals (yes, you get to eat six times a day on Medifast!) are convenient low-calorie portion-controlled foods like ziti marinara and chocolate brownies that are a cinch to whip up -- or even on-the-go chewy bars or cheese puffs you can stash in your purse.
Compared to Weight Watchers, in which you can eat anything as long as you count the points, Medifast is very structured. If you order that key lime pie for dessert, you could potentially be kicked out of ketosis -- the magical state in which you burn fat instead of muscle. Since that could stall your weight loss for a few days, you learn how to say "no," which after a while becomes a habit that sticks with you long after your fat has melted away.
The convenience and structure of Medifast make it a unique option for people who have failed at other diets. Combined with Take Shape for Life -- a psychological approach to exchanging bad habits for good ones -- Medifast can seem like a miracle for those of us who have not been successful with other diets and weight loss programs.|
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.
