Nope, just an *enhancer*. But, they are sometimes referred to as 'medicrack', as they can give you a boost of energy (in a good way). I don't use them any longer, but when I did, my house was spotless..
Where do you order the calorie burn infusers? I can't find them on the Medifast website..
Here is the link for the infusers on the Medifast1 website:.
Why do people use these? I've never tried them and I'm a bit scared to-I don't want sleepless nights and I like water just as is...
4% more BMR while "under their influence". Roughly equivalent to 1lb per month additional loss..
Im sure some use them to disguise water taste...
I use them. I get tired of plain ole water all the time. My favorite is strawberry lemonade! YUMMOO!!..
I drink 1 or 2 of these a day on top of 160 oz of pure water, I think they are great...
I dont know about the calorie burning part - but the strawberry lemonade is delicious and is a little treat for me once a day..
I love them..
I've never really had a problem with caffeine. Can drink it all the way up until bedtime and have no problems getting to sleep..
Taking percocet, on the other hand, sometimes makes it hard for me to sleep. Very weird since you'd think that'd make me sleepy. (I'm on the scrip because of my surgery Tuesday.)..
Does 1 packet equal 2 condiments? Or how do you count these?..
Medicrack...that has a nice ring to it Anyhow, I was more interested in the added flavor to water...how do they taste? How would you "users" rate the flavors?..
I haven't been able to find anything in the store that compares to the delightful taste of the Infusers, they are so light and refreshing. My DH isn't even on MF, but loves those. I have to drink it before 2pm though. I put them with 24 ozs of water. My favs Strawberry Lemonade and Berry. Not really into Lemonade or strawberry, but this combo is GREAT!..
One pack is one serving. You get three a day. They don't count as condiments but is be extra careful with the carb they add...
My favorite is the green tea flavor. I use 1 a day and split it between 2 20-ounce water bottles. It has plenty of flavor and jazzes up plain water a couple times a day. Plus you get the bonus of enhancing calorie burn slightly due to the caffeine. I'm not caffeine sensitive, but I suppose if you were, you'd want to avoid these at night. Medifast says up to 3 of these daily, and they don't say they count as a carb or a condiment. They are a Medifast product, and fine to use, so not sure why someone would ask why someone would want to use this! Perfectly legal in every way! Just a nice way to enjoy water...
