Most flavored creamers are filled with sugar. I would suggest switching for unsweetened vanilla almond milk which will contain next to no calories and be natural and much better for you.
I use the sugar free non dairy version when I must have flavored cream in my coffee. Someone else also suggested to me that I add a bit of whatever flavor extract I want to a bit of vanilla soy milk and a packet of splenda. My favorite it to use the hot chocolate to make a mocha with, frothing it instead of microwaving it gets rid of all the lumps, and it tastes far better to me than using a packet in a cup of coffee.
I also add a tablespoon of sugar free flavored syrup such as Davinci. I lost a lot of weight many years ago when all there was was shakes and broth. I have about 20lbs to get rid of so I am turning back to Medifast. Another thing that adds flavor is a teaspoon of unsweetened Kool Aide. I think the chai latte is awful. Unfortunately, I ordered 2 boxes. When I need to get the 5th meal in, I mix it with water and chug-a-lug it down. Any recipes to make it more palatable? Try mixing it in a personal blender for the best texture.
I did the Medifast diet about 7 years ago and did great until last year when my thyroid went nuts. In 5 months I put on 45 lbs. So I went in search of syrup. I found one 5 oz bottle of Torani raspberry and Cost Plus, all others were Then I remembered what I did 7 years ago… little bottles of extract or flavoring. For example to make a pina colada shake I added a little coconut flavoring, a little rum flavoring and a little Splenda or stevia to a vanilla shake.
Those little bottles go a long way and are much cheaper than Torani. Play with them, make your own favorites. Add a full cup of ice, blend, and have a nice thick, satisfying smoothie. Happy blending, and let me know if you come up with any wonderful combinations. Best of luck with Medifast. Thanks for the tip on the full cup of ice. I will try that in my Hamilton blender. I just started MF and on week 4. I need to experiment with the extracts again. Does anyone know if you can eat the Brownie mix without baking?
I used the packet like a shake and blended it with peanut butter, ice and water. I love it but not sure if it includes anything that needs to be baked….
Make a choc chip shake. I have been doing medifast for almost 2 weeks now I have lost 9 lbs first time I have seen any weight come off with any ease while trying to diet. Reading his has motivated me to change up the medifast. I used the chocolate pudding crushed ice and a few ounces of water using my mgic bullit blended it up it was very thick then i added a splash of carnations suger free French Vanilla coffee creamer mixed again till well blended to my surprise it tasted like a frosty from Wendys.
Thanks for all the tips!! Can we have the sugar free coffee creamers??? I am so excited! Black coffee has been the pits! I put splenda but still…love my Sugar free Italian cream creamer! Does anyone know if Medifast contains any ingredients that cause blood thinning?
I have lost 50 lbs on Medifast. I recently had to have a surgery and my doctor asked if I was taking any kind of blood thinners because I just oozed blood during surgery. Since I have been unsure of any blood thinning agents in Medifast I have laid off of the diet while in post op but I am in need of more protein for healing so have been wanting to get back on the diet. However, I am to soon have another surgery and am not sure if it is safe to use pre op. Does anyone out there know?

I was getting Hungary for good old fashioned hamburger casserole. I made my family the draditional pasta casserole and here is what I did for me. It was great and took care of my craving.
Add all ingredient together in medium fry pan. Cook until broccoli is tender. Add 1pkg tofu pasta. Cook until heated through. Dark chocolate shake is good with a teaspoon of instant decaf coffee, ice cubes and water blended in a small blender. Crusty Chicken I rolled the new Medifast chese pizza bites in the bag before I opened it. I used 4 oz of chicken that I dipped in one beaten egg. Then I dipped the chicken in the pizza crumbs. I sprayed the pan with Pam and cooked for 3 minutes per side.
I threw away the extra egg, but put the few crumbs left on top while cooking. I ate this with a serving of canned green beans as a contrast to the spicy chicken. I have only been on medifast 11 days and am very happy with m loss of 11 pds. I will be checking hee often for ideas. I have been on MF for a month and love it. Anyone has a similiar experience or thoughts on how to make it better? This is a great site. I need some kind of recipe for turkey burgers, of course without the bun.
I just have to say thank you to everyone here. But this website made me feel so much better. I hear and hope it gets easier with time! But now I have some great ideas on what to do with the oatmeal and tons of other stuff! I am almost done with my second week of Medifast and I have to say, so far so good! I am happy I found this website with so many great ways to make the food more satisfying!!
I found the chocolate chip pancakes to be pretty bad…. I add a few walnuts to my pancakes and just a tiny drizzle of honey obviously try not to do that too often but it does make it taste better … YUMMM!
I too hated the chocolate chip pancakes but the walnuts made them taste much better… Just a small amount though becuase of the increase in calories and fat. Thanks for all the good ideas as I am just starting out and am having a difficult time enjoying the taste of many of the meals, as is. Any suggestions for when I have that chip craving?
Lisa, have you tried Kale chips? Wash the Kale, pull the leaves from the stem and tear into bite-size pieces. Dry with paper towels and put on baking pan in single layer.
Spray with Butter Pam and sprinkle with Mrs. Dash or spice of your choice. Bake at degrees for 15 minutes. This gets a crunchy texture and Kale is sooo good for you. I love it that we r all in this together. I am only on day 6 but I have lost 13 lbs and I love all the recipies and support on this site. Thanks for the ideas everyone and keep em conning! Im sure I will have some to share eventually too. My hubby and I started 1 week ago, and of course he has lost 8 lbs and I have lost 3 lbs.
One of our combined favs are Southwest eggs made as omelet with the Vegetarian sloppy joe as filler. We split it our course, and have a tsp of salsa on top. I am seeking out other combos such as this so please post what else you all are doing! Brand new to this Medifast thing—safely made it to Day 5 without cheating. My tips, so far, for any newbies are: Literally gagged them down with 20oz of water!! What is up with those things?
Love the recipes on here…feel like this is pretty easy! Sarah 84 days until Spring Break! I dip the honey mustard pretzels in various mustards. My favorite is a deli style horseradish mustard. Hi Everyone, I have been on Medifast for a week now and I lost 7 lbs!
It was hard at first but am getting use to it. 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.
