I've tried searching for 4 & 2 but the search feature on this board tosses out really common search terms like "and". And, apparently, numbers. So I get no results.

Anyway I think I'd like to try eat on the higher end of the calorie range around 1000 calories, instead of 800. This is because I prefer to exercise.

Do the lean portions change when you go to 4&2? Or do follow the same exact guidelines, and just swap a second L&G for a Medifast meal?.

That's when you do 4 MF, 2 L&G, and 1 piece of fruit, I believe...

The 4&2 is 4 Medifast meals, 2 full L&G. You don't double healthy fats though so if you do two Leanest you only have healthy fat once...

Comment #2

Aha! This is a very key piece of information.

Thank you...

ChinaKat there is a special group called 4&2 for Reduction that is specifically for people who choose this route in Medifast to lose weight. If you do a search of the forums you should be able to find it!..

Melsing8, the 4&2&1 is part of the Medifast Diabetic Program...

Your welcome. Keep in mind that even Nutrisystem and the trainers will say that you lose weight slower on 4&2...

Comment #6

Eat 4 Medifast meals and 2 lg meals that simple LOL..

This hasn't been my experience thankfully, and I'm knocking on wood so as to not jinx myself...

I go to a center here in California. They said the 4 and 2, is two lean and greens & 4 Medifast foods. In addition you get one snack. You choose from one of: grain, fruit, or dairy. Again you only get to choose one of these options. Also, your healthy fat is limited to 1 per l&g.

For example 1-2 lbs and is recommended for older clients. Hope this helps...

When you include a snack that is a grain, fruit, or dairy, it's not the 4&2 plan, it's the 4&2&1 plan, which is also known as the diabetic plan. The guide for the 4&2&1 is here:

I don't necessarily think I'll have a more gradual loss. For me, personally, 800 calories is too few. I teeter on the edge of starvation mode, and I worry about long term effect to my metabolism on a diet that low in calories. In the past I've done far better eating around 1000-1100 calories per day.

I also prefer to be active, and I just don't have it in me to be active on such a low calorie diet.

Anyway, we shall see what the scale says.....
