Medifast Eggs vs. Eggbeaters

Postby ChynnaDoll » May 10th, 2007, 10:11 am

What's the difference? They both seem to have similarity as far as nutritional value goes. Just wondering!

Hey Chynna ~ I haven't actually compare their nutritional lists, but the MF eggs are Medi-fortified like all of our other supplements. I think, though, that their main difference has to do with how we use them. The MF eggs are just like any other supplement in your 5/1 day (you can have as many of them per day as you'd like), while the Eggbeaters can only be used once a day as the "lean" part of the L&G. The MF eggs can also be used in combination with other supplements for things like pancakes and cookies...there are recipes in the Lean Cuisine forum, if you haven't seen them.

If you compare all of this info, you see that, although egg beaters is better for you than regular eggs for certain things, the medifast eggs provide you with much more nutritionally. Its part of the overall Medifast program, and its loaded with vitamins and minerals that the other two do not provide.

Use them as part of your 5 + 1, but not your lean.

I have to be careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
