My 1st question is: Has Medifast worked for anyone? just curious? Looking forward for any response. Another quick question... Hello everyone! My name is Lisa and I am the proud married mommy to 2 wonderful kids. I'm 40 years old and need to lose about 70lbs. I signed up last night for medifast AND also to become a health coach. I have NO clients right now, as this is all new to me and I'm just starting out.

I'm SOOOOOOOO excited to finally get my life and weight in order, as well as help others..

I ordered the 5 and 1 program and will be starting it as soon as I get my food. I just can't wait. Will I get hungry on the program and if so, what should I do? I plan on following it to a "t" so I will lose the weight quickly and healthy. Also, how much exercise do I need to do while on the program. I currently run or do my elliptial 5 days a week for about an hour. Is this enough?.

Another question I have would be for the health coaches out there. HOW do you gain clients????? I'm at a loss because I am a SAHM so I don't have any coworkers and most of my friends from my last job moved to different states..

My health coach who is my neighbor told me that to be a senior coach I'd need to gain 5 clients in 30 days..

This seems impossible and very daunting to me. What if I can't/don't do it? What if it takes me 2 months or more? I'm just so scared because I want to succeed at this and HELP OTHERS! I've asked a few people and they look at me like I'm nuts and then tell me that the medifast plan is waaaaaaaaay too expensive. I just am scared to death of failing and haven't slept at all last night..

I'm so sorry for all the rambling. I just need some guidance and some words of encouragement..

THanks so much!.

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..

Hi and Welcome to MF! I also have to loose 70lbs..

Why are you a health coach? Do you get a better deal if you sign up to be a health coach?.

Good Luck! Drink lots of water...

Hi ladies and thank you soooooooo much for all the fabulous advice. Krista, I decided to be a HC because I want to not only make some extra money but to reach out and help others also. Being a SAHM I crave adult conversation!.

I was also told by my health coach that I could easily break even each month to help pay for the cost of my Medifast foods. I'm just excited to finally have a new career that I will (hopefully) love and succeed at. Good luck to all of you on your journies!..

Welcome! Now I see why people sign up to be HC's. Good luck on your Medifast journey..

Comment #4

Shouldn't you at least BE ON PLAN for a few weeks before you try to help others?? just wondering.... read the Plan and all the blogs and this should help you get started. this site is a wealth of information! good luck!..

I see! I had no idea what they were. I would help ya out but I go to a Medifast Center. Good Luck...

Comment #6

Thanks! I asked my HC about this and she said I could start medifast and be a HC at the same time. But I do see what you mean! I'm just hoping I will like the plan and I also hope I can help others to achieve success. Good luck to you also!..
