What You'll Eat
Five of your six daily meals on the program’s typical adult “5&1” diet plan are Medifast products: 100-calorie shakes, bars, eggs, oatmeal, pancakes, pudding, soup, brownies, even cheese puffs. The sixth meal, which you can have at any time, is a “lean-and-green” entrée you prepare yourself—5 to 7 ounces of lean protein (fish, skinless chicken breast, or tofu, for example) and a few servings of non-starchy veggies (like greens, zucchini, and mushrooms).
Eventually you’ll move away from Medifast products and reacquaint yourself with low-fat dairy, starchy veggies, whole grains, and fruit in transition and maintenance phases tailored to the number of calories you ought to be eating each day.
You won’t have to do much cooking on Medifast, but the company, and Medifast veterans, can offer ideas for the lean-and-green meal. And you’ll likely want recipes in your arsenal when it’s time to wean yourself off the program. These may prove handy:
