We’ve all been through stages where we didn’t have time to cook or just thought it was simpler to count calories by eating something from a box or a can. Slim Fast started first (or at least in my lifetime it was first…). I don’t know how popular it is now, but I do know how popular Medi-Fast is. I can’t begin to tell people who feel they are only successful losing weight on these plans that they are WRONG, but I do think the approach is misguided. Again, I suppose if you are very overweight and this is the only thing that is worked for you… My problem is that I don’t like to judge. What I do like to do is provide better options.
