Medifast For Older People – Does Such A Plan Exist?

I’ve had people ask me if Medifast has a plan for seniors or for folks over 65 who know that they need to slim down. I’ve also had people ask me if it’s healthy or practical to worry about your weight when you’re aging. I would strongly encourage you to consult your physician about any health concerns and questions, but it’s widely accepted that being at a healthy weight and remaining active is beneficial at any age. Being at an ideal weight can help all people remain able to do the things that they want to do and enjoy their lives more. It also helps you to avoid future health problems and to manage or improve those you may already have. Medifast does offer three different options for seniors depending on your goal and what your situation is when you start the program. Here are the options and they mostly depend upon how much weight you have to lose and how active you are starting out.

Yeast Infections On Nutrisystem: Is There A Connection?

Occasionally I’ll hear from or read about someone who thinks that beginning the nutrisystem diet caused something to happen in their life. Once such example is yeast infections. Someone might ask: “In the past, I’ve had serious issues with yeast infections. Through being careful with my diet and taking preventative measures, I’ve mostly got this under control. I’ve been on the program for almost a month and I’m happy with my weight loss, but I have a yeast infection and I’m wondering if the diet caused it?”

Should the Food Pyramid Be Tipped on It’s Head?

The healthy food pyramid has been a basic food principle for generations, suggesting we consume mostly grains, cereals, bread and pasta, whilst limiting fats and protein. The dairy board has also drummed into us the importance of daily ingestion of milk and cheese. We have been told time and again grains and dairy are a great source of nutrition and without these food groups our diet will be deficient in fibre, calcium and other essential nutrients. However, growing research suggests the food pyramid needs to be tipped on its head!

Use This 1 Simple Trick to Skip “Diet Foods”!

I inevitably get asked questions like: “What do you eat?” “What are the best diet foods?” Or something along the lines of “You’re a vegetarian right?” Not… even… close! And every time I get asked this I know what they are thinking. They think I am going to tell them I eat diet foods, e.g., cottage cheese, chicken breast, veggies and protein drinks, all day long. My digestive system is annoyed just thinking about that. But the funny thing is that when I first “got in shape” after playing football, that’s kind of how I ate. That and an enormous amount of working out helped me lose 65 pounds or so in three to four months. But it wasn’t sustainable and was definitely not right for my body. So when I tell people I don’t eat diet foods, that I eat French toast, pancakes, eggs, bacon (yummm!), lasagna, steaks, burgers (OK, I’m getting a little out of control), they look at me like I’m crazy, or they think my being in shape “just comes naturally.” I work really hard on my exercise program and I put just as much effort into what I eat-especially where it comes from.

Do Nutrisystem’s Frozen Foods Have More Calories Than The Regular Foods?

I sometimes hear from people who are very interested in the frozen food line on Nutrisystem. After all, many of these foods are very appetizing with options like french toast, ice cream sundaes, and roast turkey with mashed potatoes. But, people sometimes have concerns as to whether or not there is a catch with this. Because the foods look so appetizing, people often wonder if they are as low in calories and as diet friendly as the non frozen foods. They are interested in trying out the frozen foods, but not if it’s going to affect their results. I might hear a comment like: “I am interested in the frozen foods on Nutrisystem, but I’m afraid that they are going to be much higher in calories than the other items. I’m afraid that it’s just unrealistic to think that an ice cream sundae is not going to wreck my diet.”

Are You Allowed To Do Medifast On Your Own By Ordering Your Own Food?

I sometimes hear from people who are interested in the Medifast foods but who have no interest whatsoever in having to weigh in with strangers present or having to answer to anyone about their progress. Some people like to diet alone. And they don’t want to have to check in with any third party. From these folks I might hear something like: “I have been on the site and many of the foods look good to me. I would like to purchase some of the food and do Medifast on my own. Would I be able to do this? Or will I automatically be paired up with someone that I will have to answer to? Is it possible to just do Medifast on your own?”

Healthy Dieting – A Vegetarian Option

Does Your Body Somehow Think It’s Full On Medifast?

I sometimes hear from people who ask questions about how the Medifast diet works. Many are under the impression that there are certain aspects of the diet that trick your body into burning fat and feeling full. I might hear a comment like: “one of my coworkers has been on Medifast for the past two months. She has lost a lot of weight and she seems very happy on the diet. I am not sure how, but she never seems to be hungry. The rest of us will be eating our fast food and stuffing it in, and she will be in the break room happily having a cup of soup or a shake. I have known this woman for years and I know that she has a hearty appetite and that she likes food. So, how is this possible? Is there an appetite suppressant in Medifast or something that tricks your body into feeling full?”
