Dieting Can Be Fun With Medifast Diet Versus Nutrisystem

By Dorthy Weatherbush

Comparing medifast diet versus nutrisystem might be harder than you anticipate. They are so similar, varying in only a couple of ways. Dieters who have tried both tout them almost equally. A very slight difference in preferences make this not really an issue.

One aspect of comparison is that of the foods. Though the foods are prepackaged in both, Nutrisystem does use "real" food, instead of the protein shakes and bars. The bars and shakes are said to be very delicious, but can tend to get boring over a long period of time, even though there are a couple of other high protein foods, like prepackaged scrambled eggs and oatmeal.

When choosing shakes and bars, one prepared meal a day is allowed. This meal consists of lean meat and three green vegetables from a list. On the real foods plan, you get healthier versions of such things as pizza, brownies, mac and cheese and other common foods. You supplement these with fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, small slip-ups are less tolerated with the high protein balance, causing you to lose the state of ketosis, which indicates that you are losing fat.

Dieter's preferences dictate which plan might be more suitable. For example, on the real foods plan, there is a variety of foods and foods similar to your old pattern of eating, though of a healthier version. This can lead to splurging and going off the diet, as old habits may be triggered. The higher restriction of the high protein foods and the required balance means there may be less temptation to veer from the plan.

Dieters vary in their needs just at they do in preferences. There are conditions such as diabetes and advanced age that require different eating plans. Both plans allow for these conditions, but Medifast has a couple more specialized conditions that it allows for. Their daily cost and number of daily meals are comparable.

One big difference in the two plans is in the dessert area. The real foods include brownies, cakes, puddings, and other goodies. With the high protein diet, you only get puddings as desserts. This might be a plus for some dieters, who crave just that little bit of comfort food. However, for other dieters, the little bit of dessert might just lead to further snacking, and out of control eating.

In looking at these two plans, you need to consider the convenience of prepackaged foods. Both plans have that. This makes both plans convenient for the working person, or the mother with young children that may not have much time to prepare separate meals for just themselves.

Success of any program is the primary consideration. Both these plans have nearly equal success rates. There are many, many success stories recounted on their websites as well as in forums and other internet locations. This indicates that motivation to succeed is very high on both these plans.

Both programs offer online tools, forums, and coaches to help you succeed on their program. They also both have coupons and special offers. Both plans food costs fall into line with what one would spend on "regular" food. They average, at this time, at about $11 per day. Both are meal replacement plans, meaning you use the prepackaged, prepared foods instead of having to plan and prepare meals from scratch that fall into some other diet plan.

For the examined areas as mentioned above, medifast diet versus nutrisystem weigh pretty much together. The deciding factors lie in which type dieting you do best with, the more limited structure of limited high protein foods, or the wider selections of real food selections, even though prepackaged. When comparing the plans, cost and results compare favorably. It is up to the dieter to choose the plan they are most comfortable with.
