Nearly all of my coworkers know that I am on the this diet. The other day, one of my female coworkers told me that she thought that her grocery store was sold out of Medifast products, as she searched the diet section or aisle of the store and couldn’t find any of the shakes or foods next to the slim fast shakes or by the weight watchers diet foods. I had to explain to her that these products (even the shakes and bars) aren’t sold in grocery stores. So, she responded by asking if our town had any of the clinics or doctors offices that would sell them. Nope, I answered, this diet isn’t like Jenny Craig where you have to get your food from the clinic or center and it isn’t like some of the severe liquid diets that must be prescribed by a doctor. So where can you purchase Medifast? I’ll fully answer this question and tell you why I think that one method is far better than another in the following article.
Getting Medifast From eBay Or Craigslist (And Why I No Longer Think That This Is The Best Way To Go:) Basically, there are three ways to buy these products. You can get them second hand on sites like eBay or Craigslist. You can buy them on line directly from the company itself. Or, you can link to them through third party sites that offer support, coupons, recipes, etc. In the past, I have purchased foods from eBay and Craigslist, but I no longer do this. Here’s why. Some of the foods I have purchased in the past were expired, stale, or no longer sealed. If you’re going to purchase the products second hand, make absolutely sure that you are buying from a seller with flawless feedback.
I eventually abandoned this method because I found that by using coupons and specials, I was actually sometimes paying less (or least not much more) for the food by getting it directly from the manufacturer than by buying it second hand. And, I was getting my food new and straight from the source. In actuality, at around $299 per month (usually less with coupons and specials), these foods are often less on what you would spend on groceries, so it wasn’t worth it to me to buy something that I was actually going to regularly put in my body from someone I didn’t know.
Purchasing And Buying Medifast Online: You can go right to the company’s website and buy anything that you need. You can buy the products individually or you can buy a monthly package that will give you roughly 150 meals which you will eat five times per day (this is by far the cheapest way to go.) But before you do that, make sure that you first check out the latest specials and coupon codes. This can save you a lot of money. The company almost always has something discounted or is offering up to two weeks of free food (this is worth over $70.) It doesn’t make sense to place an order until you’ve made sure that you can save as much money as you can.
The company usually ships your order quickly (you can expedite it if you like, but I find that it’s pretty fast using the standard shipping and a lot cheaper.) With a little planning, you can time it so that you place your next order well before your meals run out so that you always have “safe” food on hand.
