Medifast Reviews Point to a Successful Diet Plan
When it comes to losing weight, everyone knows that it’s going to be an uphill battle. Nothing is going to come easy; it’s going to take some serious effort, will and determination to get those extra pounds to come off.
You’re going to need to commit to a solid exercise program and make sure that you’re executing that plan on a regular basis. You’re going to need to actually do the work in the gym (or on the walking path, pool, bike or where ever your exercise of choice takes you). You can’t just go through the motions; you’ll need to make sure you’re pushing yourself enough to place a demand on your body that causes it to reach in and start pulling some of that extra ‘energy’ you have stored around your middle.
You’re also going to need to make sure you get enough rest. This is often overlooked by people in this crazy, hectic world we live in. Nonetheless, it is critical to keep various hormones in check and to allow your body to recover from the additional work you’ll be demanding of it from your exercising.
Finally, there is diet. That nasty, four letter word. We all know what we have to do, more or less, but it’s just so hard to know exactly what to do to keep it all in check so we can reach our goals. That is where a pre-packaged diet plan, such as Medifast, comes in extremely handy.
From everything I could find from the Medifast reviews online, this is a very impressive program. They offer a wide selection of pre-packaged meals that, according to the reviews, are quite acceptable for diet food. The basic idea is that you eat 6 times per day; 5 of them being any one of their meal choices, and then one ‘lean and green’ choice that you prepare yourself. This consists of a 5 to 7 ounce portion of lean meat, chicken or fish, plus 3 servings of vegetables. Pretty straight forward, if you ask me.
The Medifast website claims that by using their program, you can expect to lose around 2 to 5 pounds per week. This is a very good, healthy number to shoot for. I feel more comfortable with those kinds of numbers than when they claim something like “Lose 15 pounds this week!” Don’t buy that kind of hype.
However, when I did a bit of reading about what actual users were experiencing, it turned out that many people were achieving quite a bit more than 2-5 lbs per week, especially in the beginning. And not just the beginning ‘weeks’, but the early ‘months’ of the program, meaning they lost quite a bit of weight in a relatively short amount of time. I have to say, from everything I read, I am quite impressed with this program.
I’m always trying to improve myself. And while I know it boils down to hard work no matter what, I also believe in working smart as well as working hard. Certainly there are systems, tools, approaches etc that can help facilitate the move from where one is now to where one strives to be. In my search, I like to pass along both my findings and my processes along the way, because so many have done the same before me. There efforts have been to my great benefit, with much appreciation from me for that. If any of my weight training experiences can benefit someone else, so much the better.
