I was looking at recipes to make "MF bread" which contains 1 package of a creamy Medifast soup, water, and baking powder. After looking at the calories, carb content, and fiber content of the Medifast Cream of Chicken soup (that's the only cream soup I have right now), can't I just have a low carb wrap which is less calories, less carbs, and higher in fiber?.

It sure would go great tonight with a veggie burger! Slurp.....

Can this product be used in place of a bar? I really miss having a wrap occassionally and this product seems to fit in. Please advise. Thank you..

Thank you so much for the great product information, this makes our job 158% easier!.

Unfortunately, this product is not equivalent to a Medifast meal in terms of protein or vitamin/mineral fortification and should not be used in place of a Medifast bar (or other meal option) as an individual choosing to have this product is not guaranteed to receive at least 100% of the RDA of 24 vitamins/minerals (like they would be with 5 Medifast meals).

It is understandable that you miss including these types of products in your daily routine, however, keep in mind that part of the Medifast 5 and 1 program is to help individuals break habitual dietary patterns (that may have led to weight gain) such as high consumption of bread and bread-like products and re-establish new, more health-promoting dietary choices. This product, although not able to be used during the 5 and 1 meal plan does appear to be a better choice than most of the other "bread" products currently available on the market and can be something you choose to incorporate when you have reached your weight loss goals and begin the transition and maintenace phases of the Medifast program. Until then, keep up the great work...and continue with the wise dietary decisions!..

Guess I'll be having some "MF bread." Thanks for the responses and info...

Comment #2

Marshmallow,.

You should try making the bread out of oatmeal. It's much more bread like!..

Comment #3

But how would it be with savory stuff? Somehow a sweet oatmeal wrap with a veggie burger just seems wrong! <shudder>..

Comment #4

Because a low-carb wrap is NOT an Medifast meal, which contains all the nutrition you need for one of your 5 meals. It won't have nearly enough protein and none of the vitamins...
