My Months on Medifast

When we last left off here in Skinnyland, I had given up duck fat fries and taken up....powdered eggs.

Medifast is the diet I did from May-July, and I lost tweny pounds. It works like this: Each day you eat five Medifast "meals" that you buy either online or at a Medifast center, and one meal you prepare made up of a green veggie and a lean protein.

Medifast meals are mostly powdered - shakes, eggs, oatmeal, soups- but also bars and pretzels and cheese puff snacks. Lots of water. NO booze. 

On some days, it was as bad as it sounds, but other days, it was this crazy system that kept me freakishly in check in a way no diet ever has. I would weigh every morning to find, in most cases, the pounds and ounces just disappearing. 

If you read the stories of other Medifasters (or MFers as we like to call ourselves) you'll find similar stories of seemingly overnight successs, and if you're looking to really see results fast, I truly can't recommend it enough. 

The downfall is...it's a very rigid plan, and when/if you do cheat...you see a quick gain. After a while, a girl can no longer exist on magic chocolate bars and cheease puffs, no matter who loose her pants are getting...

So, after three months (and what friends and co-workers in hindsight would tell me was a long stretch of me in a very bad mood....) I transitioned from Medifast to Weight Watchers....
