How to Be Successful on Medifast - My Top Three Tips to Help You Get the Results That You Want

No one wants to waste their time and money. And no one wants to believe other diet programs will disappoint them and leave them more frustrated and hesitant than when they started. However, this is something we suspect will happen anytime soon as we experience new diet programs. I know that - at least in the end - I ended up failing on many diets before finally changing things with a medifast. Some are better and last longer than others, but eventually my body seems to always return to where it looked comfortable. (This weight is where my body looks comfortable but not where I am comfortable.)

To be honest, by the time I went to the medifast, I had no illusions that would be the solution. I just want to meet my short-term goal - to lose weight for marriage. And that's probably why he's stuck so much better than anyone else. It kind of strikes me because I'm not opposing, questioning myself, or analyzing it. My goal is to take it one day at a time, do well enough to achieve my weekly goals, and continue if I am so inclined. This "one day at a time" approach takes the pressure off and makes the whole process more desirable. And, as the results continue to come, that's the motivation I need to keep going.

If anything I learned, the diet really overcame the short-term obstruction and continued on. You should continue to lose weight as you continue to work. When you stop, the weight recedes or the progress stops. This is why it is so important to choose a diet that you can live with. In the following article, I will offer more tips that I learned along the way that I believe have contributed to my success with this diet.

Tip # 1: Define Success in the Short term: Don't Allow yourself to Feel Or Pressure: This is the basic truth of all human nature. People will avoid unwanted things. If you do not receive a positive payment, then you will begin to make excuses, not give all of you, and eventually you may give up.

Look this way. Let's say you want to lose 100 or even 50 pounds. Both of these seem like goals that are changing but still scary. However, if you lose only 2 ½ pounds per week (which is not really difficult), then you will lose 50 pounds in about five months and 100 pounds in less than a year. And along the way, because you don't stress it out and take a reasonable approach, you might enjoy the process and maybe take on a new lifestyle that has everything to lose.

Tip # 2: Understanding Glycosis and the Load of Glycemic: (And How Medifast Helps You Achieve This :) Probably not many people equate medifast with high protein, carbohydrate-controlled diets like Atkins or stomach medicine. But, in a nutshell, it works under the same principal. Foods are low in sugar and carbohydrates and are low in protein. Before you complain or moan (as I do,) understand that food has been modified to make it happen. You don't eat eggs and bacon. You eat pudding, oats, shakes, chili, chocolate bars, and chips - and not necessarily foods that would be associated with "low carb".

By combining low amounts of calories and low carbohydrates, you will move your body toward ketosis where your body eventually gives up and starts burning fat stores instead of eating carbohydrates. This is a land that is promised and where you want to stay as often as you can. And, this is why you want to follow the instructions for a great "lean and green" everyday. If everything goes well with your five-course medifast meal, then you are going to be burdensome at dinner (if you have lean and green) then you are at risk of having a difficult ketosis. And then your progress may be slow.

Of course, it's really unrealistic to expect that you'll never cheat or come up short and this is totally OK. It's really a marathon instead of a sprint. It is a cumulative effect of all your efforts. Don't beat yourself up or assert yourself. Just check it and move on.

Tip # 3 Find Your Unique Stride Where Things To Click And Keep Going: After a few weeks, many people have found the right combination of food and preparation methods that will make this process most comfortable and appropriate. For me, it makes the shake really cool and adds more fluid. It also took me a while to find a good lean and green food. I also learned that it had no negative effect on me adding fat cheese to chili and chips or sugar syrup to oatmeal, pudding and shakes. These things made me feel like I was eating better and I was still losing weight. Don't feel guilty or bad for doing the work for you. As long as you get the results, all is well.

Some people will make charts and rewards for themselves and others will not like the pressure this brings. What works for you as an individual is fine. I believe that there are only a few keys to this. Make it as comfortable and as low pressure as you can. Find what works. And then repeat the process so that you get the results you want and make these things familiar.
