Hey well I am extremely new to MF... only on day three. I ordered the pre selected meals and have the mindset that I paid all of this money and I am going to eat everysingle Medifast meal I have, no matter what! Well, that lasted until my oatmeal and CN soup...

So, does anyone know of a Medifast food exchange program? I mean I am sure my tastebuds are different than someone elses so maybe something I love ( like the PB bars!!!) someone else would not like and someone else would love what I don't like... lol.

I am still going through tons of post on this site so just not sure if this is a possibility or not..

I would be willing to ship you (I will pay for shipping both ways) ALL of my SOUPS and OATMEALS and LM Bars in exhange for something I can eat and not gag....

Any takers?.

So far the ones I don't like are the banana orange and strawberry shakes, everything else has been good. LOL! You have a good idea! LOL! Today is the first time trying the lemon bar but otherwise they've been great and I've tried all that came in my variety pack so far I think...

Welcome to Medifast!.

Unfortunately, trading is not permitted on the Medifast boards..

If you have only eaten one out of a box, you can exchange them with MF, I would contact customer support..

Or you could try to make the meals tastier. Maybe try preparing your soup or oatmeal in a different way? Both taste much better if you add the water and let them sit for at least 30 minutes before heating. Otherwise you can get crunchy soup- not so good in my opinion..

Also, you can make an oatmeal "pancake". Just add less water (about 3 tablespoons) and make a pancake shape. Heat up a small frying pan on the stove and spray it with a little Pam. Cook the pancake 1-2 minutes on both sides. Super easy and great if it's the texture of the oatmeal that bothers you...

Ooohhh okay I probably should have read a little more before I posted but I had just finished attempting to eat the oatmeal so I was somewhat aggravated lol.

Thanks for the food tips! I will definitely try them this week!.

You can also make the oatmeal with extra water and drink it. I really like it that way..

Comment #5

I kind of understand the Medifast position about the trading of food, but - once you have something you don't like it can a major hassle and pretty expensive to send it back. And I like to give the food at least a second try before I decide I really don't like it which means I couldn't send it back anyway. It has made me really cautious about trying different products - once I find one I like I just keep ordering it...

Comment #6

If it's just a box or two of food, I would recommend holding on to it b/c your tastes may change AND you'll have a little "insurance" tucked away if Medifast is late delivering your next order of food...

Comment #7

Thanks for the info, I didn't know this either. that's too bad. I'm sticking it out til the next order...I ordered my own choices for the next one...

Comment #8

I placed an order that I customized for my first order, I get too bored eating just one thing. Its good to know you can send a box back if it's only one packet used. I find the oatmeal is the hardest thing to get down in the mornings. But I add extra water and microwave it, stirring every 20 seconds to keep it from getting dry and crusty on the sides then let it sit for a while before I eat it. Its thicker but not too pasty that way. I am going to try one of everything I ordered and keep a list of my favorites so that next order will be all of stuff I know I like...

Comment #9

I really like the recipe on the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal box for the cookies. Not much like an oatmeal cookie, but I like them in the evening for something sweet. I make 6 small cookies from 1 packet...

Comment #10

I agree Holly... the otmeal is DISGUSTING and so is the soup. I was really nervous and thought exactly the same thing you did.... "How the heck do I get rid of this?" but I have been making the oatmeal pancakes every day now and they are actually filling and tolerable. I do a simpler recipe which you might wanna try which is to put in a bowl, add a pinch of baking soda and some cinnamon, Mix up with enough water to form like a paste, pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes and it's like an oatmeal cookie. Some people also add equal to sweeten it as well. I hope this helps!!..

Comment #11

I got tell you...the oatmeal is well less than appeitizing. Not a fan of tring to make something better. Customize your order. Another hint.....dont use your vanilla shake in your coffee....OMG..
