The key to sustained weight loss is to reduce calorie intake while still feeling satisfied. Which means you have to know which foods are most likely to make you feel full.

is just wrong

Another satiety trick is to add water to your food, which doesn't mean boiling your steak or diluting your yogurt with H2O. We're talking soup here. Just about any protein and vegetable combination can be turned into a sippy meal -- from steak and kale to chicken and broccoli. You can also add some higher fat food like milk or cheese to make you feel fuller even longer. A side benefit of soup is it takes you longer to consume; so your body will let you know you've had enough calories before you go overboard.
If you do get hungry between meals, choose snack foods that have protein and fat, which does not include Pringles or pie. Some good options here are nuts, yogurt, cheese and hummus. The combination of protein and fat will fill you up and help you avoid an emergency visit to the vending machine. You can add some fruit to your protein -- apples with almond butter, Greek yogurt with peach slices; but avoid eating fruit by itself because it could spike your blood sugar.
You can purchase Medifast replacement meals directly from Medifast Centers, the Medifast website or -- for less 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.
