I’ve been on the medifast diet for quite a while and I believe that I’ve tried almost every food that is offered.  Some of the foods I like very much and consume on a daily basis. Some of the foods are quite decent with a little tweaking, and some of the foods require me to steer clear of them. I will tell you which of the foods taste the best and which are pretty unappetizing in this article.

On Overview Of The Medifast Foods: Before I go into taste though, I’d like to give you a quick overview of what types of foods are available.  There are about 70 food choices and these are called “medifast meals.”  These meals are small, but most are convenient, prepackaged, and easy to assemble.  You’re asked to eat five of these meals per day and one larger, healthy meal you make for yourself which consists of protein and veggies. (This is called the “lean and green” meal.) So in essence, you eat three meals and three snacks per day.

The foods are pretty diverse and you are covered in terms are breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and drinks. There are eggs, oatmeal, protein bars, shakes, soups, stews, chilis, chips, fruit drinks, cappichinos, hot chocolate, and pudding, to name a few.  All of these foods have many different flavors available.  So, now I’ll discuss which tastes good and which doesn’t.

The Best Tasting Medifast Foods: Without a doubt, this diet has some standouts which I would not hesitate to eat even if I were not on a diet.  These are the shakes, the protein bars, the oatmeal, the cappuccino / hot chocolate and the pudding.  These products are good straight up and I don’t have to do a thing to them – although I will sometimes add sugar and fat free syrup or fat free whipped cream to the shakes if I am feeling adventurous. The protein bars have a nice chewy texture and the chocolate mint taste like a girl scout’s thin mint cookie while the peanut butter tastes almost like a Reese’s bar. The oatmeal taste like Quaker’s and the pudding is good, but can also be used a base to make muffins, cookies, etc. The cappuccino and the hot chocolate mixed rival a mocha anywhere.

Decent Tasting Medifast Foods That Can Be Good With Some Minor Adjustments: I find the eggs, chili, and soup to be quite OK. But, I do dress them up a little bit to give them a bit of help.  I will add veggies or fat free sour cream to the eggs or I will add it to a fat free tortilla (and sometimes add chili too) for a burrito. I do the same with the chili – add cheese, lettuce and tomato, and salsa for a spicy burrito.  I will also sometimes make a mock taco salad with chili by adding lettuce, tomato, cheese, and the diet’s chips for a nachos effect.  I also add the chips and sour cream to the top of the soups as well.

The Foods That I Generally Don’t Like: I pretty much steer clear of the stew and the fruit drink.  I don’t like stew in every day life and the fruit drink tastes a bit heavy and artificial.  I get by this by adding a lot of water to it and pouring it over shaved ice for a snow cone.  Or, I’ll freeze it (adding ginger ale or seltzer) for a popsicle.  Luckily, there are enough food choices available that it’s no big deal to skip these options.  I will sometimes eat them, but I often also just load up my order with only the foods I really using via the design a menu option.
