The Best Tasting Medifast Foods

Do Medifast Foods Taste good? Medifast will let you order whatever you like and if you want to try out different products you can get just order a sample of something to see what it tastes like.

The Low Down On Medifast Foods: Before I tell you which I think are the best foods, I’d first like to offer a general overview. Overall, I find that the taste and quality of the foods are pretty good. Most of them are prepackaged and require only minimal assembly. You’ll eat them five times daily and will prepare one larger meal on your own. There are over 70 foods to choose from, including the popular shakes and bars, oatmeal, pudding, soups and stews, cappuccino, fruit drinks, etc. With that said, below are the foods that I really like and eat very often.

The Shakes And Bars: Admittedly, there’s nothing original or surprising here. But, the Medifast shakes and bars are the popular cornerstones of the diet because they taste good, are easy to prepare (with the bars, you just rip off the package) and are filling. There are two types of shakes. The ready to drink (with a juice box type container and a straw) and the 55 variety that you mix with a blender. I prefer the blender type as I like to control the consistency and will sometimes add fat, sugar-free syrups. But, I keep the ready to drink in my car. All of the shakes are tasty and they come in flavors like Dutch Chocolate, Swiss Mocha, and French Vanilla.

The bars come in very good flavors also (mint chocolate, peanut butter, granola, etc.), and the texture is very good. They aren’t crumbly and chalky as you may expect. Both of these items are low in calories and carbs, yet they have a nice dessert type taste that you don’t commonly get in low carb foods. So if you are wondering where to buy Medifast, we have the right place for you after we explain exactly what goes into it. It’s exciting to talk about all of the yummy food.

The Eggs:

I have to admit that I generally don’t like quick to make eggs as the consistency and texture are just off. But, I don’t find the Medifast eggs bad at all. They’re great with veggies and fat-free cheese to make an omelet and I also use them to make breakfast wraps (fat-free cheese and tortillas.) They’re very versatile and taste fairly decent.

The Chili:

I use the chili the same way that I use the eggs – as a base for other things. I like to use it as the base for burritos, wraps, and I will also put it on top of the Medifast chips for nachos.

The Oatmeal:

I was skeptical of this diet at first because it’s technically a low carb diet. I love breakfast foods and didn’t want to lose them (or have to eat eggs and bacon every day instead.) The oatmeal allows me my breakfast and snack fix and the flavor is comparable to that of Quaker. There are also a lot of nice flavors like blueberry and peach.

The Pudding:

The pudding tastes fine as it is, but I more commonly use it to make cookies, muffins, and cakes. In this way, I’m using a Medifast product as the main ingredient for “safe” goodies that I really enjoy.

The Cappuccino:

This option feels very indulgent and caloric, but it isn’t. It is so nice not to have to give up my caffeine fix and I’ll often mix this with the company’s hot chocolate to make a mocha. Even, better, the cappuccino is part of the momentum line that helps to rev up your metabolism.
