On the run CAN be done

Ted says he rarely cooks, and during his weight loss, nearly all of his Lean & Green Meals came from restaurants. One of those creative types, Ted’s good at figuring out Plan-friendly fare pretty much any place that hands him a menu. His go-to fave is a made-to-order salad at Chipotle done his way: skipping the high fat ingredients and high carbs.

If you follow the plan, you’re going to lose weight. Simple as that.”

Practice, practice, practice

Ted got to his goal the same way you get to the Met: doing the right thing day after day. “I liked the fact that the Medifast Program was so structured,” he says. “Living healthy in general is all about mindset and commitment. For my weight loss I needed something that was going to be pretty structured. Even now after losing all the weight, I still am very watchful of what I eat. I still eat a Lean & Green every day.”
