I am glad to be able to have ideas on how to use the Medifast packets to make something different to eat. Good luck to everyone who is on Medifast! The smell is also horrendous. Any recipe ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! I add the following ingredients to the eggs: Makes all the difference in the world!

Best advice I can give is to cook on the stove in a small frying pan MUCH better that when you cook in the microwave. Added some onion powder which also helped.

Mix eggs with water and let them soak for a while. Take out the veggies and cook the eggs; then add the veggies back in. Some salsa helps, too. I add a half serving of egg beaters, try the southwestern. You can also add chopped red pepper and onion to just medifast serving. Always do scrambled, never microwave, use Pam and scramble in fry pan. Hi, I know this is a bit late, but I use Mrs. Add it before you put it in the microwave.

This is my 5th day on MF. I did the eggs according to directions, added 1 tbsp. Drop this bag into a pot of boiling water and boil for 15 minutes. You can use the salsa on top of the cooked omelet. If you are craving for a pasta, there is a shirataki noodle that is 20 calories, no-oodle noodle and miracle noodle with no calories.

That can be your free food. You can also use the tomato soup for a sauce, diced some tomatoes and blend it and add ground meat. I am soooo excited to get started on this program.

Since I am going to be in my first week, can I use these variations right away or do I need to wait until my body starts adjusting? I know my TSFL coach told me to try to stick to the program very strictly to see the desired results. Thanks in advance for any help or advice! Just finished week 3 and have lost 10 lbs. I am a bit of a food snob, so this has been difficult. I am not a fan of the oatmeal or soups, at all….

I did accidentally find that the cappucino is better cold than hot. I filled my shaker with water to make a shake and acidentally added a cappucino instead of a shake mix.

Its a little quirky and foamy after shaking at first…. When I fixed it hot, half of it foamed and overflowed and the fiber was very noticable and gave it a sludgy consistency. Any suggestions for the oatmeal or soups? The consistency of the oatmeal was awful and the taste not much better. I like chicken and veg stir fry or a big veg omlette for lean and green. I use the egg beaters and it is a big serving of eggs.

The chicken and veggie omlette filled up a regular dinner plate. Many fast food places have a grilled chx salad with mixed greens, cucumber and a few tomatoes. Just watch out for added bacon and cheese and be sure to use you own dressing or read the dressing labels before using it…the majority are not good for you.

I also have made a home-ade chili with ground turkey or chicken, low salt canned diced tomato, onion, green chilis or bell pepper, a little water and a bit of taco seasoning or add your own seasoning. Would also be good with frozen veg meat substitute crumbles…just be sure to check labels for other carb filler additives and carb counts.

I added cocoa powder and coffee for a great treat. Oz today he talked about teas that help with wt. He specifically mentioned Pu-ehr tea that shrinks fat cells, he recommended 2 cups in the morning, White tea, 2 cups at lunch that boosts metabolism, and Chickweed tea, 1 cup with early dinner for late night appetite suppression. He also talked about coconut palm sugar that regulates glycemic index without highs and lows that cause cravings and fat storage.

It is used 1: Used my kruerig using my StarBucks house Blend and made a cup of coffee. I let it cool to room temp and then mixed it with one Truvia and a cappucino packet with the mixer jar with the ball in it.

No weird texture no protein lumps! Any suggestion for Green sides? My mom suggested a coliflower garlic mash, like mashed patatos and it was great.

Any help would be great thanks! Preheat oven to Coat cauliflower in olive oil or pam Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic Place on cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper as liner Cook about minutes.

Take out and coat with the balsamic vinegar add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese if you want Put back on sheet and cook about another 10 minutes until dry. I love the chai latte. The trick to making the hot drinks is to heat the water separately first. Put the mix into a mug.

Add about a Tablespoon of the heated water and stir into a paste with a whisk. Once it is mixed well add the rest of the water. You can also add the sugar free coffee syrups to improve the flavor! Try making a homemade marinara sauce.

Pomi tomatoes nothing added , celery, onion, garlic, spices and just about any green veggie cut very small in a food processor for a filler. If you want, make it a meat sauce by adding browned ground turkey.

You are allowed a little parmesean to make it feel more authentic. I thought we couldnt use canned tomatoes. If so then what is a serving size of marinara sauce and what does it count as? There are some wonderful recipes in there. Comes out sort of like a shake. You can also use a bit of salt to taste it brings out the flavors. After reading all these recipe suggestions, I look forward to giving this diet a try. If any one has recipes to share please email them to me I would really like that.

We are excited to have found a system that works and to finally be in control of our eating habits even if it only has been a short periodof time. The MF system has a philosophy that we hope to use for the rest of our lives to help us get and stay healthy. Helps me start the day off right. Having a hard time drinking powdered shakes with water in blender bottle. Thanks for the help. Copyright - Get Skinny Be Happy! Get Skinny Be Happy! I found some on line at drugstore.

Chocolate chip mini muffins: How many meals are you counting these muffins if you are using the pudding mix? Same thing for the hot drinks like the Cocoa and the Chai Latte… Reply.

I was so confused about what to buy, but this makes it unedrstaandble. I am missing the daily logs! Has anyone tried just drinking a brownie packet as a shake? Brownies made into truffles?
