Whos' got short shorts?

Postby cyberghost » September 6th, 2006, 10:28 am

I got short shorts!

Well, I will when I'm done with this ;)

Hi folks! Long time lurker here. I found out about Medifast when I was surfing the net a couple of months ago. I figured since it's either this or surgery, I'd try this first. I just had my first shake today (Strawberry Creme) and while it's not as bad as I thought - it immediately prompted me to order a blender and some da vinci sugar free syrup.

I do have a couple of newbie questions: How many of the shakes do I need to drink per day (I'm on the 5/1 plan). And if I don't like the shakes at all, can I stick to the soups and bars (only 1 per day for that one I'm guessing).
Also, what kind of condiments are permissable? (ie, vinegar, tobasco etc?)

Thanks in advance

WELCOME!!! I am alos a semi newbie. Have been on mf for 5 1/2 weeks. when I talked to Nancy, she said that they reccommend having 3 shakes per day, but that any 5 mfs will be ok with the exception of the bars, which are only one per day. I usually have 2 hot chocolates, 2 oatmeals, and 1 chocolate pudding, unless I am out running around, and then I have the ready to drinks.

As for the condiments, try going to the Lean cusine forum. I know that Nancy recently posted guidelines for that, and to my dismay :( , I must limit my beloved davinci syrups.

If you always do what you have always done, you will always be where you have always been.
