Your question was: Shopping list for Medifast?.

I like keeping olives handy for a healthy fat. And Laughing Cow Lite wedges...

Comment #1

Hi and welcome!! Great list so far! The one thing I noticed that you might like to add is some chicken and/or beef broth, boullion, base, powder, whatever to be able to sip on and add to Medifast soups for flavor or increasing volume.

Good Luck to you!.

I would add olive oil and eggbeaters. Those eggbeaters really come in handy as a quick meal or if you're making some of the shakes into muffins or shake cakes.

Maybe canned tuna so you could always throw that on a salad.

Flavored teas and sparkling waters.

You might want to look at some of the common recepies and see if there are any staples you need to make those. For example, my favorite muffin recipie called for flax meal so I definately needed to buy that. Mini muffin tins, the flexible silicone ones, are great too.

Plus see what other supplies you may need like: a cooler, water "jug", Magic Bullet or other really good blender. Good storage containers. You need to soak your soups so, I soak my soups overnight and I need to bring them to work in a good container so it won't spill.

If you work in an office figure out if you need any supplies there too.

Good luck...

Comment #3

Thank you!! So we need to add the following....

Lite Laughing Cow.

Olives (Black I assume?).

Salad Spritzers.

Salsa.

Eggbeaters.

Olive Oil.

Canned Tuna.

Brother/Bullion.

Flax meal (or seed?).

I already have a Magic Bullet but the suggestion for new muffin tins and maybe an extra shaker for work or to keep in the car is a GREAT idea.

Let's keep the ideas coming??..

Comment #4

Pam spray.

ICBINB (I Can't Believe it's not Butter).

Sugar free jello.

Digital scale (I think this one's a MUST for me!)..

Comment #5

My husband and I were wondering about the ICBINB... how does it work into the plan, is it a condiment or a fat and what is the serving size?.

A digital scale is on my wish list..

Comment #6

Per NS.......

My name is Tammy,.

ICBINB spray is on the condiment list (under "additional oils & fats) and 10 sprays is considered a condiment option...

Comment #7

I love low sodium Teriyaki Sauce - I count 1tbsp as 1 condiment..

Also, pumpkin and/or apple pie spice is great for making muffins. If you are going to be making muffins/bread don't forget baking powder!..

Comment #8

Hey Sis!.

I like to use 0 calorie diet sodas to mix w/ shakes and pudding to make GREAT milkshakes. One of my favorites is vanilla shake or pudding, diet rootbeer & ice in the blender. Yummy rootbeer freeze! I also use diet cream soda w/ banana shakes or puddings & sugar-free caramel Torani syrup. The diet cream soda goes well w/ just about any other flavor, even chocolate..

The other thing I'd add to the shopping list is instant coffee. I love my freshly brewed coffee, but I also like to have the instant to add a spoonful or two to shakes..

Oh, and you can have black OR green olives as a fat serving..

I can't wait for you to start!!..

Comment #9

Thanks sis!! We are excited to get started too!..

Comment #10

I always make sure I have LOTS of spices, grated parmesan cheese, light string cheese (mozzarella), mustard/vinegar/marinades, buffalo sauce, sugar free popsicles, sugar free gum. I also recommend getting chicken broth and light cream cheese to go with that zucchini ribbons recipe, it is DIVINE. I also have real peanut butter (there are a few cookie recipes that I think have better texture because the PB is real - just make sure to log it and see what works for you) and light whipped cream...

Your list looks good. You'll come to realize what you need to keep on hand as you really get into the program. Just be very very careful with all those sauces. Look at the carb and sodium counts on every bottle before you buy them. Some of them are so high in carbs that they are totally off plan. All of them are high in sodium, even the reduced sodium ones, so choose the lowest and use them sparingly..

I wish you well on this program; it really does work as long as you do it correctly. You've made a great start keep it up!..

Comment #13

I would have to agree with sflraven, for at least the first two weeks (more like a month) I would try to keep it as simple as possible. You will need to weigh and measure everything so if you keep your L&G simple it will be simpler. Once you get involved with mixing and adding ingred. you might find yourself off plan. The first week, I think, is crucial because that's the time when your body will be making most adj. You are supposed to be under 100 grm of carbs a day with a target of 80-85.

That doesn't allow for much room to play around. Also, you may find that some of these things are just not necc. for your 'menu'. Start slowly...

Comment #14

Salad Dressings - take the list with you and make sure what you buy falls within the guidelines. I believe it's 5g fat and 6 g carb or the other way around. I remember the 5 and try to find things that are 5g each..

Salad Spritzers.

Salsa - for me it makes the soups palatable..

You've got a great list going...
