My friend just lost 20 lbs on the Medifast diet She said it was not a hard diet to follow. I have spent the day investigating this diet plan, with the possibility of going on it. It is a very low calorie diet with 5 premade meals and one you make yourself out of lean protein and low glycemic vegetables. It was kind of expensive from what she told me, so I don't really want to sign up for it.

So my question is: anybody here doing Medifast, or some similar diet? And, how hard is it to follow? Just looking at some other options, as I've tried WeightWatchers in the past, but haven't liked the program changes the last couple of years.

Thanks for listening!

    There are meal replacement shakes, yes, but also soups, oatmeal, brownies, ice cream, mac n' cheese type things, chip-replacements, etc. Fans of MediFast appreciate the range of options all pre-packaged to fit within the plan. The daily Lean and Green meal looks a lot like WW, but otherwise the emphasis is on packaged product.

    Hope that helps. Good luck!

    Yes, thank you both for the input. I have heard Medifast is expensive. It is basically all premade foods except for one meal a day. I'm not ready to do anything yet. I like to do my homework before committing to the expense. If it's mostly liquid meal replacement I don't think I could stick with it.

    I know there is a sparkteam for Optifast which is similar but is medically supervised. I did Optifast and, if it is a good fit for you, then it works great. However, you have to be in the right mindset and it can be costly to pay for all the meal replacements.
