Question I have... How can a vegetarian use the Medifast Diet? Many thanks for any response. 2nd question I got is.. In March of 2010 my health was pretty poor. I drank a good amount of beer, ate a lot of greasy pub food, and got very little exercise. I weighed in at about 187 pounds.

On the good side, I had just quit smoking, but I feared I would gain even more weight. I had read about Medifast on another forum, and decided to give it a try. I ordered my first box of food, and on April 2, 2010 I started the program..

Though I had tried other diets in the past, Medifast seemed a bit extreme to me so I approached it as an experiment - I would commit to following the plan 100% until 7/31/10 and then decide if I wanted to continue. If on 7/31 I felt Medifast was terrible, I could quit guilt-free, but until that date I would not waver..

Within a few days of starting Medifast, my heartburn disappeared. Within a couple weeks, my energy level increased. I started the Couch to 5k running program, and as the weeks went by and the pounds came off I started feeling better than I had in years. By July 31st I had lost 44 pounds and had no desire to quit!.

In September of 2010 I reached my goal weight, and I've been maintaining a 70 pound loss for a bit over 6 months now. When I started the program, I didn't believe I'd make it. I couldn't picture myself in a thinner body - I had been heavy for so long. In February of last year if you had told me I'd be running 5 miles at a stretch and enjoying it I would have laughed so hard I would have spilled my beer and choked on my cigarette! My exercise habits and attitudes toward healthy eating were as bad as could be, but because Medifast was such a strict program and such a huge change from my old ways, I believe it allowed me to reset my relationship with food. I even learned to cook!.

The Medifast forums were a huge help to me - they gave me information, inspiration, and support. In turn, I hope this post helps others see that change is possible...

What a wonderful story! Medifast is not an "easy" program, but it is one that certainly has seemed to work for so many people. I'm not much for "posting", but I do read the stories, suggestions, helpful hints, etc., which is what got me started on this journey. I just love reading the success stories, which gives me hope and keeps me committed. Thank you and best of luck on your new lifestyle...
