I’m an almost 40 year old mother of 3 that has had a lifelong struggle with carbs, particularly in the forms of candy and chocolate. Up until having kids, I was only slightly overweight, but from the first pregnancy on, the struggle began. I have lost weight on Weight Watchers but gained it back after grieving a sudden death in the family. Later, I lost weight on my own using My Fitness Pal. When I forgot to log-in after the 100-something day and watched the counter go back to zero, I lost my drive to stick with the diet. Silly, I know! Once again, the weight piled back on. Eventually, I discovered Medifast. I am no longer a strictly Medifast user due to the costs, but the basic premise of low carb/high protein foods eaten every couple hours seems to work for me. I am not experiencing hunger and cravings like I did before. I’ve dropped 53 pounds so far from January 23rd to July 18th. Although packaged foods are not ideal, I am working on a plan to keep the weight off once I lose it, and this plan will likely be a continuance of keeping my diet low carb and sticking with many small meals throughout the day. This site was created to share reviews on the products I use or have tried as well as tips and tricks that have worked for me along the way.
