Living with pain every day of your life takes its toll. If you were like me, I was
taking morphine for my pain and I either stayed in the bed or on the couch. After a while my muscles begain to hurt and ache,
and I started to gain more and more weight. So I decided that I had to do something. The next thing I did was to look
at how I was eating and see what I could change. I tried to modify, and change my diet, along with adding an hour a
day of exercise. Unfortunately it did not work! Most of the medications that I was taking had one side effect
in common........that was gaining weight.
It was at this time that a good friend of mine told me about how much weight that
she had lost on Medifast. You had four shakes a day of your choice, and a protein bar (it tastes just like a candy bar,
except that it is good for you). I thought to myself that not only could I lose weight but I could take care of the
sugar cravwing that comes from taking pain medication. What was even better was the price on all the food that I needed
for each week........it run's around $60.00 a week for everything or $200.00 a month. That includes everything
that you need to eat for a month. You can't buy regular food in a month for that amont of money.
Some of the choices to eat or drink are: oats, shakes ( French Vanilla, Dutch Choc., Strawberry, Orange,
and Orange Pinepple, soups, and Protein bars: Choc. Devine, Choc. Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Rasin, Choc.
Double Berry, Yogurt Coated Lemon Fantasy, Choc. Mint, Diabetic bars, soups, and oatmeat ).
They also have a line of food designed for: Womens Health, Diabetics, Healthy
Heart, Lactose Free, Womens Sports Drink, Bio-Engineered Drink, and Joint Health.
It is easy to prepare the food, for example the shakes: Take 6 to 8 ozs of water
and add to the shake of you choice. Then add ice cubes and blend until it is the way you like it. You can also
add things like flavoring, or suger free pudding to the shake. There is a recipe book that shows you how to make a varity
of different shakes. So I don't think you will get bored!
As you begin on the plan and the weight
begain to see the weight start to melt away with out lose of muscle mass. I was so exicted! After three weeks
I had lost 20 pounds and I was wearing the clothing that I had not be able to put on in years. If you would like to

to your doctor first before starting the diet.
