Medifast, Where to Start?

Friends, I have a confession to make. I’m not happy with myself. My body no longer feels like my own. I don’t like what I see in the mirror. And I know I’m unhealthy. I depend on food far too often to soothe my anxiety and while food will always be my love language , I’ve got to be the one in control of the relationship. I’m starting the Medifast program today and I’ll be sharing my journey along the way. I had success with the program in the past and I know it works for me. It’s where I’ll begin again with working towards a better me. A me that lives in a body she loves. And a me that no longer allows food to be my sanctuary.
Medifast is a portion-controlled weight loss program that helps people lose weight faster and more effectively than traditional dieting. Meals come in packets that I add water to and microwave or refrigerate and are offered in a variety of types and flavors. The meals are quick and easy to prepare, are portion controlled, and many are filled with protein to help keep that hungry feeling at bay. The Medifast Achieve Plan, their standard plan for weight loss, is medically designed to create a calorie deficit, allowing my body to burn fat for energy. Medifast also offers specially tailored programs to meet the needs of nursing moms, vegetarians, seniors, teens, and people with diabetes or gout.
If you’re considering Medifast, but don’t know where to start, I’m sharing some of what I’ve done to prepare myself to begin the program:
- I met with my physician and consulted with him on the details of the program
- I ordered a month’s worth of meals to ensure I was well-supplied
- I’ve set up my orders for one week in advance so that I’m never without meals
- I created a start date that works for my schedule, ensuring my first three days are at home so I can be most successful
- I’ve consulted with a Medifast nutritionist and addressed my concerns with her (late night bingeing, travel food choices, etc)
I’m excited to share more about Medifast along the way and can’t wait to learn more about myself as I take this step towards a better me. Come back every Monday for updates, my thoughts on food choices, recipes, exercise tips, and much more.
