Medifast Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Soft Serve by Lori

I put out a challenge for someone to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream using Medifast food and Lori made this awesome recipe!

Chocolate chip cookie dough peanut butter soft serve!

Begin by making your chocolate chip cookie dough balls! Put your cookie mix in a small dish and add just enough water to make it wet. Using your fingers create small balls out of the dough, the smaller the better. Make an even number of balls so you can split them evenly among two meals. Place dough balls on wax paper and freeze for 30 minutes or more.

Next prepare your soft serve according to package directions. Split soft serve up into two dishes and fold in equal amounts of cookie dough balls. Return completed meals to freezer to "set" for 20-30 minutes. Then enjoy!

Recipe makes 2 MF meals.

I thought this was one of the best recipes ever! My favorite way to enjoy the new chocolate chip cookies! This was just the right mix of chocolate and peanut butter! Another delicious Medifast creation!

Kay's Naturals Diet Food Arrived!

This is what a 3 month supply of Kay's Naturals food looks like:

Normally this would have cost $660, but I paid only $209.79 including shipping thanks to an awesome Cyber Monday Deal!

My Diet Plan

I have found that I tend to do really well with weight loss when I eat 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat.  While on Medifast, I was eating 800-1000 calories a day, but could never work out without feeling weak.  

Here are my nutrition goals:
1200 calories
120 g carbs
90 g protein
40 g fat

Without working out, that will give me approximately 1290 daily calorie deficit. 
Projected Weight Loss 2.6 lbs/week

In order to achieve this, I am eating Kay's Naturals products, Slimfast shakes, Medifast diet food and Progresso Light Soups. I got a terrific deal on some Slimfast shakes a while back, so I am very stocked up on them.  I love starting my day with a shake - I have tried other things and always go back to the shake.  Once my Slimfast shakes are gone, I will buy a lower carb protein powder - probably the Muscle Milk one from Costco.

I am eating 5 small meals a day, aiming for about 160 calories a meal. Some are a bit lower, some are a bit higher but as long as it averages to 160 calories I am happy.  That leaves 400-500 calories for dinner. I am not going to be as restrictive as Medifast Lean & Green guidelines.  I will try to eat a lean protein and lots of veggies!
