I love Oatmeal but gag with Medifast oatmeal even as pancakes or muffins. I have looked at the nutrients and facts and Regular Oatmeal and Medifast oatmeal seem to be real close in values with all of the vitamins and calorie intake. I just love Oatmeal. And I want some variety in my day and don't want to consume just shakes the whole day..

Has anyone used the real stuff or asked? I am sure it is not allowed per Medifast but any suggestions on if you would do it.

Thanks.....

I have a similar question but in regards to " chocolate Silk light milk". I love the flavor and would like to replace on of the meals (evening, before bed) with a cup of the milk. Thought I could add some Benefiber for fiber effect.

Nutritional facts:.

90 calories, 1.5g fat; 2 gm fiber; 15 gm carbohydrates; 3 gm protein.

I have only been on the program for 10 days, so it is likely this question has been answered elsewhere in the thousands of postings but am hoping that someone will guide me in the right direction...

Comment #1

By substituting other foods, you're not getting all the nutrients you need each day, which can hinder your weight loss (and health) in the long run. But don't take my word for it, here's MF's take on it:..

Comment #2

There is no substitute for Medifast meals. They are formulated with specific macro and micro nutrients that you don't get with the off the shelf foods. If you go with something not MF, then you're no longer on the plan. It's that simple. You'll be missing nutrition and you could possibly make yourself sick because of that. You will probably slow your loss too.

Either you take your medicine and get well/healthy/thin or you do something else. Choice is ultimately yours but think long and hard before you go off plan...

Comment #3

Wow I wrote this message in 2006. Ha shows you how long ago I started MF. I wouldn't sub now. Back then I was trying to stomach the oatmeal down. Haha..

Comment #4

Wow never looked at the date! LOL Nice necro!..

Comment #5

I have a friend who lost about 60 # 2 years ago and has kept it off and only used sugar free oatmeal. I'll probably get blasted for saying so, but some others who had done Medifast told him to buy the Wal-Mart brand. I did it also 2 years ago when I lost 21 pounds. Just sayin' and answering the poster's question...

Comment #6

Yup, though I don't think it's a sin.....LOL... just saying that the poster who wrote about the walmart sugar free oatmeal is correct.... back in the day I did it too for about a month ..... never made a bit of difference, didn't slow down my losses or stop them.....

And I just want to add that we have to do what we have to do to lose weight. Medifast is a tool that we each have to use differently. Like I never ever once counted condiments while losing 150 lbs... still don't ... (I have 20 more to go)..... I use and always have, light cream in my coffee and more splenda than Medifast 'allows'....

I also eat more veggies, the lower carb ones... anyway..... blast away at me if you must......
