I 'm starting to gear up for Medifast and was wondering if anyone can tell me if any of the following would be ok to use in food and if not what could be used as alternatives:.

- low sodium soy sauce.

- Pad Thai paste.

- Low sugar fish sauce.

- Apple sauce.

- Crushed peanuts/almonds/walnuts.

- lamb.

- coconut milk.

- green curry, pnang curry.

Also, where do I find a thread to show how to reconstitute the shakes or other Medifast products into muffins etc.? Can I use milk instead of water?.

Check the list of condiments under my plan. Go to the new to Medifast and ask a dietician. Do a search on this thread for RECIPES ONLY tons of recipes plus some nice people have compiled pages of them to download on page 18. Check this board often. The sandwich maker thread has good recipes, I Had a Belgium waffle for breakfast that was fantastic. Recipe is on what to do with oatmeal thread just down a few from your question.

Pudding mixed with 3 Tbs of da vinci sf syrup, I used vanilla, I was licking the Bowl!! Keep searching this board it goes on forever and every recipe I've tried has been good...

They only thing that I can't find is about skim milk. Can I add like a cup of it to my coffee/tea?..

Comment #3

Go to Getting Started with medifast board and ask a dietician. I'm not a milk drinker. They may take a dat or 2 to answer but they will and are very helpful...

Comment #4

Look at the condiments list, whatever is on there is what you can have. You get 3 condiments per day, and one tablespoon of milk is one condiment, regardless of it being skim, 1% or 2%...

I have seen some people say that 1 cup of skim milk is considered a snack. I don't think Medifast has it listed but I think Take Shape For Life lists it as a snack...

I've done all my business through TSFL and made frequent use of their website; their documents are exactly the same as you find on the Medifast website. There may be some who will tell you that more than 3 tablespoons of milk is ok, but there are lots of people who also give other faulty information..

This is taken from the TSFL website under their FAQ:What kind of snacks can I have on this program?.

In addition to your five Medifast Meals and one Lean & Green Meal, you may choose one of the following optional items per day (NOTE: Snacks are not to be eaten in place of Medifast Meals or Lean & Green Meals.):.

3 celery stalks.

1 fruit-flavored sugar-free Popsicle.

1/2 cup sugar-free gelatin dessert, such as Jello.

Up to 3 pieces of sugar-free gum or mints.

2 dill pickle spears.

Medifast Soy Crisps (Apple Cinnamon, Ranch, or White Cheddar flavors - one packet = one snack serving).

Medifast Crackers (Multi-grain or Garden Vegetable flavors - one packet = one snack serving).

Eating more than one snack per day may hinder your weight-loss efforts. For tips to help you with slower weight loss, please refer to our Plateau Tips (PDF file)...
