I practically leaped off the scale and clicked my heels when I saw that I was under 220 for what is probably the first time in three or four years. I plan on never coming close to that mark ever again.

In all seriousness, I had a long, detailed reply typed out to HemiEd's post a while back, but it got eaten by the server (oh, the irony) while I'd only saved half of it, and I was too pissed off to try to re-compile it.

So, I'll just direct you to the latest version of the thread on another forum that I stumbled upon on one fateful January night. It's part of what led me to lose 8 freaking pounds in one month just from eating slightly more properly and walking more frequently and "getting ready;" that daily diet was probably around 15-1600 calories a day, mostly from fat/carby stuff like ravioli (make a bag, eat it in a day in two meals; how the **** did I lose weight?) and a couple of Jolly Ranchers or Laffy Taffies, but the cutback and the commitment and the exercise STILL paid off, mentally and physically. Cool thing is, I now have the knowledge that I have what it takes to keep the weight off once I'm off this, thanks to that month.

Anyways, here's the thread:

The Awful Forums - Medifast Diet Part 5 (http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1860289) (you'll see a registration nag-box at the top; just scroll down)

First things first: this is most assuredly not for everybody. If you're looking to lose twenty pounds and bulk up and get into "fighting shape," it's the opposite of what you should be doing. For me, however, it was a godsend, matching my needs in almost every way. I can lose weight without gaining extra muscle, the schedule works well with my non-lifestyle, and the quick early weight loss allowed my impatient ass to see it working almost instantly and not get discouraged during the toughest portion of the program.

To elaborate, the first few days are really tough. Psychologically, it's a scary "what the hell am I doing?" sort of thing, in addition to taking in a greatly reduced load of food; even worse if you're doing 5+0 (which I was, for a week, before I decided that was a retarded idea). Now, though? I don't really ever get "hungry," and I still eat some tasty stuff, to boot. I enjoy my chicken or steak or turkey or whatever and green beans (food of the gods), turnip greens, salad, or broccoli for my lean & green (plus steak/low-carb BBQ sauce, the latter of which I've grown to consider an essential part of the grilled chicken experience; always makes me think of watching Cheap Seats, for some reason). I partake of the delicious oatmeal raisin bars, the rather good Bluth frozen banana shakes/sno-cones (French Vanilla + Banana Creme = Hunt's Snack Pack pudding-flavored shakes).

So I haven't been able to eat pasta, subs, pizza, fast food, or cookies; no Dr. Pepper or Coke. Big deal. I don't even feel an urge to eat that stuff anymore, though I do know my first meal once I'm fully off the transitional phase of the plan will probably be some kind of delicious noodly treat, just for the hell of it (I don't plan on ever going back to regular, 200-calorie soft drinks, though). The benefits, for me, far outweigh the negatives. There's something amazingly uplifting about knowing that all I have to do to keep it up is to just stick with it, and it's basically guaranteed to work. I've gained so much self-confidence simply from the knowledge that my willpower is actually pretty strong, when I have a reason for it to be.

So, if this and the Something Awful thread above piqued your interest, and you want to stop being a fat porker, look into it further. Find out if it's right for you and something you can do. If you think it is, then see a doctor (5+1 is pretty safe physician-free, but it is recommended) and give this bitch a shot.

Whether it's from Medifast or working out, or anything, the vast majority of people can put an end to the Fat Bastard cycle. It takes effort, and if it were simple or easy, everyone would weigh what they want, but it is an attainable goal that, most of the time, is only sabotaged by your own mind.

Yum yum eatem up.

I suppose I'm off the very low cal/carb part of the plan, since I'm basically going to aim for a ~1200 calorie/day limit for a while as my metabolism adjusts and I exercise more and more. The goal is still to lose about 20 pounds more, but I'm fine with it being a more gradual process than the first 60 were. It's still sort of hard to fathom that I've lost that much weight.

It's been amazing, really. The time has flown by with pretty much no issue whatsoever, and I probably look five years younger than I did six months ago (a relative even said so last week), which is a pretty ****ing amazing thing considering I'm not even of legal drinking age yet.

I look at the -- scant few, for good reason -- pictures I took of myself last year, and a side by side comparison reveals two wholly separate people. There are obviously plenty of things about my body that I'm still far from satisfied with, but I've finally realized that my only hope is to actually work with it rather than just giving up and trying to eat myself into an early grave.

The amazing thing is how much self-respect that I, a fairly self-loathing individual, managed to gain. I gave it a shot, I stuck with it even when it seemed like such a massive undertaking, and in the end, it more than paid off. I've said it before, but honestly, if I can do something like this, anyone can. Anyone.

Be careful coming off the diet. I did the Atkins, lost 50 pounds, and as soon as I went off of it, promptly put on all the weight, plus some.

Your body will crave the carbs once you re-introduce them. Really fight the urges and watch what you eat. Someone told me that your body will do all it can to hold onto the carbs you put back in your body for fear of "starving" again.

Good job on the weight loss! You might actually inspire me to get off my duff and shed some lbs, after listening to how good you feel. I miss that part.

Two weeks or thereabouts into the post-Medifast era. I think I'm figuring things out as I go along. Like, Corn Flakes are so ****ing delicious, even if there are better breakfast options that would be less carby and more filling.

Today I weighed in at 177 pounds. I still can't get over how ****ing fat I was before and how I willingly turned such a blind eye to it because I was just too despondent to care. **** that Dutch noise, I'm not going down without a fight.

Two years ago when I went on my bastardized version of Atkins I came down from 400 to 330...

Two years of dorking off, I gained only 10 back...

I've been back on it since May 1, and am down to 297 this morning...

I'm not really worried about putting it back on as I've kinda bought into the eating healthy lifestyle... (I started reintroducing limited carbs about a two weeks ago and I'm still losing)

Congratulations... just keep reminding yourself that at this point that the exercise part is key...

I'm about 6'5, and four about four years after my junior year of college (back in 2000), I was hanging around the 230-35 range--mostly fat and not much muscle. I then suddenly took on more "responsibility" and becme less active and moved to about 245. I had some health trouble in 2004 that involved a short hospital stay and that knocked me down to around 210 when it was all said and done. But I quickly moved back up to 230. That's when I decided enough was enough. As soon as I got the all clear from the doctor, I hit the gym. Really pushed myself on the stationary bike, and then played pick-up games of soccer once or twice a week.

At first I knew I had lost a little, 'cause I had to buy a smaller belt and my 38 pants that had been snug became loose. But I really hadn't noticed (and at the time I had a goatee). I shaved the goat, noticed my double-chin was gone and was like: "Holy crap, I never thought I'd see the day."

I bottomed out around 175-80 (which is on the low end of a "healthy weight" for someone my size), though I could still loose a little around the gut. But I've now cut back on the biking and have started working on building muscle mass--I'm really starting to see a difference with that, especially with my upper body.

I tweaked my diet a little (I really didn't set out with the intention of losing 50 pounds--I was thinking: 15 or 20), but it was mainly the exercise.

I can really feel it on the soccer (and ultimate frisbee) field... I'm a bit faster, but more importantly, I can hang--stanima wise--with just about everyone else I play with... No more doubling over for five minutes after running down the field once... :)

The walking/running, the healthy diet... it's all a piece of cake at this point, honestly. It helps that I'm not so despondent about my life anymore due to various factors, of course.

I shaved the goat, noticed my double-chin was gone and was like: "Holy crap, I never thought I'd see the day."Having a chin and a jaw line of some sort is very underrated.

I recently began working out again after a nearly four year hiatus. It's amazing how quickly the stremf returns, but how long it takes to rebuild the stamina.

My wife and I starting getting meals from a place called Super Suppers, which prepares the dishes, then freezes them. You just thaw, put them in the oven or on the skillet, and eat. It's a much better solution than fast food, and I don't have to have the daily conversation "What do you want to get for dinner" with the world's pickiest eater.

My goal is to lose 40 pounds this year. So far it's been like a yo-yo. One week I'll be down 5 pounds, the next I'll be up 6. The net result is that I'm exactly the same weight now as I was 1 January, and somehow I 'feel' (and look, to my eyes) even heavier. This despite daily walking that's exceeded 325 miles total this year (more than 500 total since 1 november). So I obviously need to be more cognizent of what I'm eating. I started jogging (just a mile, but it's a start) last monday, and while I have no desire or intention to ever start weightlifting, I do have another goal of working up towards 100 pushups and 100 situps daily, but that's going to take some time, since I can barely do 10 pushups right now. Basically I just want to get myself in shape, where jogging a few miles isn't a death struggle and 100 pushups is just something I do. So, I guess while I did mention a weight goal, it's not really the weight that's important. I feel like I'm soft, weak, and I just don't like that.

That said, hopefully I'll start to see some results relatively soon, because if I don't, I'll stop. I know me. If the next 3 months give the same (zero) net gain as the first 3, then I'll say "f*ck it".

As much as it pains me to say this, it's all about what you eat more than how much you excercise. Get it down to around 1700 calories a day with very little fat, and you'll lose it. I guarantee it.

The equation for losing weight isn't hard, it's eating less and moving more. Just exercising isn't enough. Just eating right isn't enough.

With me it's not as much about how much I eat as what I eat. I don't eat a whole lot, but I eat a few too many salty, sweet and fried foods. I'm doing better with it, but if I slip up even once, it's like a snowball effect. And as much as I'd like to, I just can't moderate some things. I have to completely get things like chips out of my house, for instance.

I'm the same way. I do fine during the day. Night time eating is what ****s me up every single time. I wonder if it's because I smoke pot....................

Hey UP, if you are still here and reading this I have a question.

Would you still recommend this diet? Did you have any negative repercussions after you got off the Ketosis?

I knew a girl that was trying to use meth to lose weight, but the problem was she smoked pot too, so she still ate alot of cheetos and didn't get any skinnier.

I can answer this.

Yeah, the negative repercussion is you start gaining weight back because you don't learn to eat right. :mad:

I did medifast, I lost 100 pounds and I did learn how to eat right. I also learned how to get on an exercise plan, stick with it and keep myself accountable.

Welp, this thread refuses to die. I'm in the upper 160s at the moment (5'8"), if anyone's interested in knowing the long-term aftermath or whatever.

I wouldn't really recommend Medifast unless you (a) need to lose a ton of weight (50+ lbs), and (b) are okay with the idea of dealing with the effects of losing a lot of fat while not building muscle (SOME PARTS REMAIN JIGGLY, OKAY).

In the end, it was way better than being fat. I was way too depressed four years ago to pursue anything else, so Medifast was basically a godsend.

These days I often think how cool it'd be if I were Hope Solo-style ripped or whatever, but oh well. I've had my body chemistry sorted out for long enough to be confident that working out will provide the results I'm actually looking for. Plus school's done for the most part, so I actually have the chance to do lots of positive stuff. Yay.

I did medifast, I lost 100 pounds and I did learn how to eat right.*terrorist fist pound*

p.s. here is a cat (also i did not look like this four years ago, you're just going to have to trust me on this)

At first I was all like, "I'm so sorry."

And now I'm all like, "Well, that sounds good?"

Very, very confused. Good to see you, though. Like, really.

I've lost ~14 pounds since summer thanks to meticulously tracking everything I put into my body and greatly increasing my activity levels. it's been a very relaxed, uplifting process and it honestly hasn't felt like as huge an adjustment to my lifestyle as it has apparently been.

I've been in the 150s for a few weeks now and it's weird to realize I honestly only need to lose about ten more pounds to reach what I always kind of saw as my ultimate impossible goal weight. Regardless, the mid-150s seem like a great place to camp out for a while if things plateau again, and it's nice to be secure in the knowledge that as long as I keep tracking my food intake honestly* I won't float back into the 170s like every other time I started dropping a few pounds in the past few years.

Plus the exercise is addictive (missing two days in a row is the guiltiest of feelings), and having to estimate my metabolic needs using the "moderately active" modifier honestly brings me to the verge of tears. I used to feel like "sedentary" wasn't low enough to describe my daily activity.

I think I'm actually more proud of this humble amount of weight loss than I was of losing ~80 pounds via Medifast, though there's zero chance I'd have had the opportunity to do this without that first step. Also, it's harder to lose weight when estrogen's running the show, so there's a 2x multiplier over 2006. It's also funny that my size L shirts and blousethings are starting to get too tentlike, and I only have one pair of jeans that doesn't instantly fall past my hips without a belt (shame that an awesome skirt i was planning on wearing in formal-type situations was collateral damage in all of this, but oh well).

bleep bloop i am a computer. ERROR: YOUR DAILY KCAL TOTAL WILL EXCEED 2100 IF YOU EAT THIS ITEM. ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO CONTINUE?
