These two videogenic women, both of whom follow the Medifast 5&1 Plan, have plus-sized personalities and love to play with their food.
Leah was the first vlogger I discovered, although I thought her name was Veda at first. (She was Vlogging Every Day in April, and I'm old like that.) What I love about her videos is she talks to me like an old friend from her kitchen as she whips up various Medifast meals. Leah's sidekick husband Nick co-stars in the videos, playing the role of Mikey in the old Life cereal commercials.

In her recent Medifast mashed potato food review video, the New Mexico resident prepares the two new varieties of Medifast mashed potatoes, dishing on their appearance, taste and texture, while dispensing no-nonsense advice on whether they should be avoided as trigger foods. "I think Medifast has a lot of trigger foods," she says. "Mac and cheese, ziti. The chewy bars are like candy bars to some people. You know what your triggers are and if it's a problem for you either stay away from them or deal with your demons inside and learn some discipline like we're all trying to do."
Medifast MetallicaMom, meanwhile, is a bit newer at Medifast vlogging, but she is quickly gaining a loyal following thanks to her irreverent style and determination to tweak every Medifast replacement meal. Think a hipper, sexier Marie on "Everybody Loves Raymond."

In her Medifast mashed potato video, Triple M turned the magic powder into a knish with her new Babycakes doughnut maker. Just watching her taste the finished product was pure food porn.She holds up the plate to the camera and says, "I realize what this needs. Mustard. It's a knish. I'm telling you. This is a knish...."
In her typical stream of conscious style, the massage therapist and Medifast TSFL coach then riffs on buying knishes from a street cart on Madison Avenue when she lived in Manhattan in her 20s. "You ask the guy for a knish with mustard and he splits it open and he squirts the fucking mustard inside for you so that it's not messy and then you just eat it. (Heavy breathing.) It makes me hyperventilate. I love it so much. I love potatoes. I never eat potatoes. I've learned to not eat potatoes ever. But these are really good. You take a turkey sausage link and you put it in the middle of that and you somehow cook it. I'll figure out a way to do it. Your talking knish. You're talking knish with some protein inside and some meat and salt. I love this!"

Just watching the video made me want to order my own Babycakes doughnut maker so I could try this deviant recipe myself!
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.
