Quick question... Has anyone had any success using the "Medifast Diet?"? Thanks for any response. 2nd question I got is.. Hi All-.

Can I have an In & Out Burger protein style with no ketchup or onions or basically the burger wrapped in lettuce with mustard and pickles? That's OP right? THe patties are very small...wonder if I could get away with 2 patties.....

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..

You would need to pull up their website and check out the nutrition facts to see if it's within the guidelines. My guess is that it will be high in sodium and possibly carbs, but I don't know anything about the chain except people love it. You could also do a search for it on the nutrition site. Chances are, someone else has asked the question, so the answer may be there for you...

You are allowed 5 oz cooked ground beef. I would stick with 1 if I were you. If you think you are short on protein, make it up with a string cheese or something. If you can't weight it, it's best to err on the side of caution. I just don't trust fast food. I think you could get away with the burger as you posted it..

I've never eaten there, but most fast food hamburger meat is very high in fat, and likely sodium and other fillers.....I would check their website for nutritional info:.


Comment #4

Thanks all...I think it's a pretty good option without the sauce, ketchup and onions! Oh and of course without the fries! LOL..

Comment #5

A better option would be a grilled chicken sandwich sans bun..

Comment #6

Hmmmm well after reviewing the site...I'm thinking too much fat....I'm not overly concerned with the sodium.....

Comment #7

For me, I've basically been staying away from ANY fast-food type places....I barely eat at regular sit-down restaurants, and when I do, it's a big hassle and I'm sure the wait staff hates me...LOL..

Comment #8

Nope I wouldnt definitely eat at one of them food = no food in my book LOL..

Comment #9

I occasionally eat at Red Robin and have their burger protein style. I looked up the nutrition facts and they are still higher than if I had made my burger at home...

Comment #10

You could grill a lean turkey burger at home, wrap it in iceberg lettuce and have turnip fries with it - delicious!..

Comment #11

Thanks all! I get that some people avoid certain situations, but I still want to eat out as I will be eating out at times for the rest of my life and I will learn to eat healthier at ANY RESTAURANT!.

I have eaten out several times in the 8 weeks I have been on Medifast and have done quite well! To me this is true progress...I have managed to find something OP almost anywhere and still lost 40 pds in 2 months.....

Thanks for the input all!..

The beef option for the L&G needs to be a lean beef option. My guess is the burgers at in'n out are not 90/10 or 95/5, but probably 80/20 or even 75/25 to get the juicy flavor they want. It'd be OK in a pinch, but I wouldn't have it often, and I wouldn't plan to have it either...

Comment #13

Yeah...I did not indulge. The fat content online was too high a price to pay for a quick lunch! I had chicken with spinach salad instead...: )..

Bugs I hear you! We like to eat out also and I figure it out most of the time. That said, we were at In-N-Out last weekend, I had an iced tea with lemon and splenda as my "treat" the burgers even protein style just were not worth it to me and I knew I would end up hungrier than I should. I had my tea and a bar while DD and DH put away Double Doubles..

Unfortunately, In-N-Out does not have other meat options so I do avoid it. I think in this situation you made a good choice...

Comment #15

It all depends on your perspective. In-N-Out has very high quality and fresh ingredients. If I'm out running errands all day and need the protein, I will have a protein style burger (each of their patties are about 2 oz.) with no onions, no sauce, add yellow mustard and pickles and make up the rest of my L&G at dinner. You get about 1 full green serving with the lettuce and tomatoes and one condiment with the mustard and one optional snack with the pickle slices. Since they cook to order, you can ask for no salt and they will gladly accomadate you..

Incidentally, the DON'T add "grease" to the grill, not sure where hotcocoa8 came up with that idea (in most locations you can actually see them cook your burger right after you order it)..

Obviously the choice to eat In-N-Out is entirely up to you personally, just like eating in any restaurant. Anybody that's ever eaten there knows that they're well above most fast food places in quality and closer to sit down restaurant quality with their ingredients and preperation, so do what you think is right for yourself personally...
