Medifast shakes for weight loss: Now, I’ll look at the medifast 55 Dutch Chocolate Shake. This one has the fewest calories, at just 90. There is only 1 gram of fat, 13 grams of carbohydrates, 8 sugars, and 11 grams of protein. This has the least amount of calories and fat by far. And I find that flavor to be the best of the three. I have to add a little extra liquid to this product because I don’t like shakes that are too thick, but with that little modification done, this is in my opinion the best flavor of the bunch.
How these shakes fit into a weight loss plan based in part on ketosis: Most of these shakes work on two principles. They want to save you calories in your meals and they want to save you sugars and carbohydrates while giving you more protein. The goal here is to get your body into ketosis so you can burn fat instead of sugars and carbs. But for this to happen, you need to do your part by eating enough protein and consuming fewer calories and carbohydrates.
I find it questionable that the quick and thin shake meets this criteria. There are simply too many sugars and calories. The atkins shake is better in this regard, but it still has a lot more calories and a whopping nine grams of fat, which I find quite troublesome. It could be biased because I regularly consume medifast shakes, but I find that they are the winners both in terms of nutrition and taste.
