My question is Does Medifast work even for a teenager? Thanks in advance for any answer. 2nd question I got is.. I'd love to see folks post your usual day of MF... how you time your meals and what you usually eat (or do you always mix it up?).

Comment #11




Lean & Green.



Sometimes I substitute one of those for a shake cake. I don't make too many different items out of medifast meals. I like to buy things that I don't need to "doctor" to enjoy, otherwise I end up using way too many condiments! I like to save them all for my L&G..

Comment #13

My days are kind of hectic with 4 kids going 3 different know, normal mom stuff. So, since I still have to cook for my family I try to space my meals around the same time they would be eating, otherwise I am tempted to eat what they are having. Not good!.

So usually this is my day:.

7:30ish: Swiss Mocha or Dutch Chocolate shake with instant coffee.

10:00 : Oatmeal (Peach is my fave!).

12:30 : Some kind of soup or puffs with 2 glasses of water.

3:30 : Shake, or bar....depending on my mood.

6:00 : L&G...and since I don't want to cook 2 meals, they get the same thing as me + a carb.

8:30 : Dessert...pudding, brownie, bar....something sweet.

The weekends are a bit different...I actually cook breakfast for the whole family...this is when I have my eggs or pancakes....sometimes I make both and split them between Sat and Sun, but I always have my shake first with my coffee....its the best!..

7:30 Oatmeal or Hot Chocolate or a Pancake Muffin or ? .

12:30 Soup or Eggs or ? .

3:30 Shake with Soda or Bar or Pretzels.

6:00 L&G.

9:00 Maintenance Bar or Brownie..

Comment #32

My eating times are all over the place, depending on what day it is, what hours of the day or night I get to sleep, and how busy I am at work. I work alone and sometimes just don't have the two minutes it would take to inhale a bar or mix a shake, so I have to double up on Medifast meals when I have the chance to scarf them down...

Comment #33

My days at work usually go like this:.

7 am: Coffee mixed with Hot chocolate and sometimes sugar free raspberry syrup.

10 am: shake or bar.

12 pm: lunch with coworkers, here's the thing, we have a chef that cooks for us so I pick and choose depending on what she makes that day. I usually have 1 cup of salad with WF balsamic dressing and honey mustard pretzels or soup or chili. The other day she made a salad with different toppings including grilled chicken and we chose which toppings we wanted. (So of course, I wouldnt eat the pretzels if I ate some of my lean).

1 pm: SMORES BAR. This is how I avoid the fresh baked cookies our chef makes every day..

3:30ish or 4: bar or shake.

7 pm: Lean and green. I try something different every night.

8 pm: Some kind of concoction that feels like dessert. Cream cheese mixed with a shake or pudding and lots of ice and possibly SF syrup. Or I really like the raspberry brownie bites made with brownie and pancake mix (It makes 2 servings). Or sometimes just a bar..

On my days off, I tend to eat things that take a little more effort. I like the cinnamon buns made with pancake mix. My favorite indulgence is the pizza made with cream of tomato soup mix. I try not to overdo it with the doctored meals but whatever I need to do to stay on the plan some days...

Comment #34

Have you noticed you eating 6-1 instead of 5-1 lol you must be starving..

Comment #35

Hi everyone!.

Loved readying everones days are very similar. My fav is my chocolate shake around 8 pm. I wait all day for that treat!..

Comment #36

No I am not doing 6&1. What was listed was 5&1. 2 shakes, 1 pretzel OR puff, 1 bar, 1 pudding (that is 5 total Medifast packets) + L&G + a snack, and a snack is not considered a Medifast packet, it is like jello or almonds or PB, but I try to stick to the low cal jello!..

Comment #37

Upon waking (6am) Large glass of water & a cup of decaf coffee.

8:30 - Hot Cocoa - more water.

11 - Bar - more water.

2p- L&G - either fish, vegie burger or egg beaters with either zuchini or spinach sauted in olive oil & garlic.

5p Tropical Punch - more water.

7p Dark Chocolate Shake - more water.

9p - Brownie.

I am very much a creature of habit. I do occasionally throw in some chicken or steak for my Lean but I am again finding myself leaning towards vegetarianism while on MF...

Comment #38

I've found that I am very habitual with my eating, and it's quite alright with me. You'd think I'd be bored, but I'm not. There's something comforting about the consistency. So.....

7 Dutch Chocoalate shake.

9:45 Peanut Butter Bar.

12:00 Chili Nacho Puffs (Chick noodle soup when weather was cold).

3:00 Peanut Butter or Chocolate Bar.

5:30-5 L&G - usually chicken breast cooked a variety of ways and either salad or green beans.

7:30 Brownie with a few walnuts sprinkled on top.

I really don't vary from this. Oh and I do 2-3 Strawberry Lemonade Essential Calorie Burns each day..

Like I said, I rarely vary the item or the time I eat... although weekends vary a bit on the time, since I sleep later!..

Comment #39

8 am: Pancakes or shake.

11am: hot choc.

1 pm: puffs or soup.

4 pm: pretzels.

6-7 L&G.

8: brownie, bar or shake..

Comment #40

Monday thru Friday.

8am chilled coffee mixed into a shake (usually chocolate with sugar free syrup).

11am Oatmeal (hated it at first but now I like it and it definitely fills me up).

1pm Soup.

3-4pm Chocolate Pudding or puffs or pretzels.

7pm L&G.

8pm Brownie, Pudding or soft serve.

Weekends I have more time to have things like the pancakes and shakes (which I don't make at work)..

Comment #41

This is a great idea...interesting to see the choices....


7:30 am Shake (orange or banana).

10 am Coffee/Splenda/Soy milk & Bar or Oatmeal.

1pm Soup(.

3:30pm Shake or pretzels.

6pm Lean & green.

9:30pm Shake, pudding, or soft serve.

Weekends I do something fancier like scrambled eggs or pancakes for breakfast...also 1 weekend night is "take out" night so I stick to shakes that day in case my L&G is hard to configure..

AndreaB in Dallas..

Comment #42


8am Oatmeal.

1115 soup.

130 smores bar.

330 chocolate pudding w/ a spray of FF reddi whip.

600 L&G (usually either burnt tofu and zucchini or egg white omlette and zucchini).

8 brownie.

I also have 3 berry flavor infusers per day..

Weekends start with a chocolate chip pancake and go from there...

Comment #43

I have a posted schedule of meal times to keep me on track, but I don't always start at the first meal (but I keep in mind I'm an hour ahead, or 2 hours behind, or a meal behind, etc..) My schedule says 9am, 11:30am, 2pm, 4:30pm, 7pm and 10pm. Today I'm about to eat my last meal of the day and it is almost 12:45am - that puts me a meal behind, more or less..

When I'm home I mostly use the hot cocoa as my Medifast meals - I am ADDICTED to that stuff. I do occasionally have a brownie too (that's what's up next). When I'm out of the house I do portable foods without prep - cinnamon pretzels and crunch bars (chocolate mint, peanut butter and smores mostly)..

Once the weather warms up I'm likely to start mixing shakes again - I make them in my Ninja with lots of ice to make a slushy drink..

Very interesting thread!..

Comment #44

Just starting but routine day.

8 - shake.

10 - shake.

12 - 1/2 L&G.

2 - shake, bar, soft serve or pudding.

4 - homemade vegetable soup (uses up my condiments and some 'green' portion).

6- 1/2 L&G.

Before 8 pm - snack.

Work long nights three days a week so I move my times down by 2-3 hours after noon time...
