How To Organize Your Medifast Meals
I’m a Medifast blogger and receive products in exchange for my honest opinions.
Fail to plan, Plan to fail.
You’ve probably heard that quote floating around the internet, and it’s true. If you don’t prep your meals for the week, it will be difficult for you to stay on track as you’ll constantly be tempted to veer from your diet plans.
Medifast has definitely proved to be a challenging journey for me. But I like a good challenge. Changing your eating habits entirely is difficult, but if you’re going to do so you need to be prepared.
When you get your Medifast shipment for the month (if you order monthly), it will probably look something like this. It’s exciting to get new meals to try each month, but don’t let that excitement take over your organizational attitude to stay on plan.
My second month on Medifast, I left all of my meals in the boxes as they were, pictured above, and I would just plan my meals each day on that day. This method definitely did not work for me, as sometimes I wouldn’t have time in the morning to grab my meals knowing I’ll be out all day and it would lead me to make bad choices.
But not this time.
When I got my month 3 shipment of Medifast, I opened the box and started organizing my meals right away. There are so many different ways you can organize your meals, but this is the method that has worked for me this month.
Medifast is a 5 & 1 plan which allows you to have 5 Medifast meals and 1 “Lean and Green” (protein and vegetables) meal that you make yourself. It’s a very straight-forward diet– follow the plan, and you’ll lose the weight. If you prep your meals in advance, then it will make it easier for you to stick with it.
The first thing I do is pick out 5 boxes from my shipment and lay out the meals for each day (ex: 1 Shake, 1 Soup, 1 Dessert, 1 Snack, 1 Bar) and when I’m done for that week, I put all the meals for each day in their own plastic bag.
I did this for all of my Medifast meals for this month and when I was finished, I just put all the plastic bags into the shipment it originally came in.
I can’t tell you how much easier it has made things on Medifast, especially since I started school this semester. In the morning, I just grab one plastic bag with all of my Medifast meals and put it in my backpack. That way I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to have to eat throughout the day and it keeps me from making bad choices.
