I am new to medifast - about a week in. I ordered from the medifast website, and got the women's variety package since it was the most economical (it qualifies for the VIP). I'm about a week away from them shipping my next order, which appears that it'll be the exact same items I got this month...I am not liking some of the meals and would LOVE to try other ones - such as the chili, stew, brownies, soft serve, etc and NOT get the strawberry things.

I was wondering if I used a health coach, does that affect the price at all positively or negatively and ify ou use a health coach, can you order the items you want and it's the same or less than on the medifast website?.

Thanks for any input!..

I order through TSFL and have a health coach. I order whatever I want and switch my order around all the time. I saved 5% after my first 2 orders and now save 8%It goes up as you move along the program. I also get free shipping. I am very picky with what I eat so could never do the "packs". Good luck on the program!..

Thanks for the qiuck did you find a health coach?..

I looked for a woman online whose husband was doing the program as well. I emailed her and started a conversation. Hope you find someone that works for you!..

You can edit your order any time. Put some boxes in your cart then remove the variety pack, then add things until you qualify for the VIP. Don't forget to save. Do this a few days before you order is scheduled to be shipped..

If you go to TSFL, after you get set up with a health coach, you'll need to call Medifast to cancel your VIP. The advantage of TSFL is that you can order sample packets rather than whole boxes...

I've always ordered through my health coach. I've enjoyed the 12% discount for some time now. I'm so picky, that I actually order my 5 favorites by the case and then skip a month of ordering...just works out better for me. You can approach a health coach online, ask others to recommend theirs, or email TSFL () and I'm happy to send them to you..

Peace & good health,.

F8: I ordered VIP for the first month. I have done Medifast a few years ago, so I was somewhat familiar with the food, so I didn't do a package deal. I did pay a little more, but it was well worth it. Then for my second month (love the free week), I changed my order to include brownies and bars which I left off my first order. For my 3rd order, I will go through a health coach who I met in the chat room. I was clear that I didn't want any "coaching" and she was so okay with that.

Good luck...

I am ready to make my 2nd order; the 1st time I just ordered a la carte, but I see there are some things I need to learn For instance, what is a TSFL? Do you get a discount for using a health coach?..

Ian: Did you do VIP? With your second order (if you did VIP), you will get another free week. Everyone I have spoken to says two VIP (you can custom order your VIP) is the best way to go. TSFL stands for Take Shape For Life. You will be going through a health coach. From what I understand, they also offer a free week. Not 100% sure about that.

Does that make it more clear?..
