Hi everyone, I just started Medifast on Satuday 10/21. I only ordered shakes with my kit. The flavors are fine, it's the consistancy I'm having trouble with. It's rather grainy, chalky. Anyone have any suggestions?..

Welcome to MF!!! Just make sure you 'shake' your shakes for a couple of minutes. Use cold water and it helps if you add a few ice cubes because they help break down the powder a little bit in your shaker..

I actually mix mine in the blender. I put in a cup of cold water, the shake mix, then about 10 ice cubes. I first use the ice crush setting, then hit 'liquefy' for about a full minute. They come out super frothy. And they're very filling...

Lots of people use a blender with or without ice. I personally like to mix mine up in the shaker jar and then put it in the fridge for a couple of hours. Some how it gets creamier. I usually drink one and mix the next one up and that way it has the 2-3 hours to get better...

I love the shakes, if you use a blender and lots of ice they are great. Also try adding some Sugar Free Syrups or diet soda. I had the orange shake and added a little diet orange soda. There are several recipes for changing the shakes flavors which I would try to help them taste better. I've never tried one without the flavorings added..

All the best on your shaking adventure...

I make mine in the shaker jar. Usually with more water than they recommend because I think they are a bit too strong for me. I shake it up really well, pour it over ice. Then I wait at least 5 minutes to start drinking..

I've also gotten some cute little 20 oz. sipper bottles and I just mix my shake in the shaker cup, put in LOTS of ice cubes into the sipper and pour in the shake. I can hang onto one of these and still have ice in it for at least 5 hours! And yes, the shakes are still tasty, they just need a good shaking before you drink them due to settling..

And this weekend I discovered I could mix the shakes up in the sippers. (I was on vacation at a convention).

Thanks guys! The consistancey is growing on me as I go. I mixed the French Vanilla with some coffee the other nite and it turned out great. Thanks again for all the advise and best of luck with your "losing"!..

I use my immersion blender and it mixes them up really well. They come out alot creamier and a bit frothy. I started mixing everything with it and it makes everything better. I think it is alot easier to clean up then dragging out my blender everyday and the magic bullet is alot more expensive. I only paid 15.00 for my immersion a few years ago..

This really does make a BIG difference! I use one of those small personal blenders for shake mixing most times but today I made my mid-morning shake at breakfast (while my oatmeal was cooking) and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours, then gave it a quick whirr on the blender and boy oh boy, it was thick and creamy!!!.

Sometimes the simplest tips can make all the difference. Thanks again...
