Why is the Medifast weight-loss program special?
Medifast is an effective, healthy weight-loss program, especially when compared to other diets you've likely experienced without success. Think of Medifast as a lifestyle change, not just a short-term diet or weight-loss solution. Medifast is a portion- controlled, low-calorie weight-loss program that leads to faster weight loss than traditional diets. Medifast is special because you can achieve the quick weight loss you want, and, unlike other weight-loss programs and diet plans you've tried,on average, our patients report weight loss of up to 2 to 5 lbs per week. Medifast has specially tailored programs to meet the needs of nursing moms, seniors, teens, and people with diabetes or gout.
Is Medifast safe?
Medifast has been clinically proven through a number of controlled studies. Since 1980, more than 20,000 doctors nationwide have recommended Medifast Programs to their patients and more than one million customers have safely used Medifast.
What is a Medifast Meal?
Almost all Medifast products are "meals" since they contain protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients. There are only a few exceptions: Flavor Infusers™, Medifast Soy Crisps, and Medifast Crackers (Soy Crisps and Crackers are optional snacks). All other Medifast offerings, including shakes, soups, stew, chili, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, fruit drinks, iced teas, hot beverages, bars, puddings, pretzel sticks, and cheese puffs, are Medifast Meals.
What is the average weight loss amount per week?
Clinical studies indicate that most people lose an average of up to 2-5 lbs per week with Medifast. The scale isn't the only test, so check other indicators such as your waistline measurement and how well your clothes are fitting you. Individual results may vary, and are dependent upon various factors such as your starting weight, targeted weight-loss goal, level of exercise, presence of medical conditions, use of medications, accuracy with diet compliance, etc. As with most diets, Medifast suggests that you consult with your physician prior to starting a weight-loss program.
How much does Medifast cost?
Medifast costs about $11/day (or $299.50/month when you take advantage of our convenient Variety Packages; buying foods individually may cost slightly more). That's a lot less than the average of $16 a day the average American adult spends on food (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2006 Consumer Expenditure Survey). And since Take Shape For Life does not charge enrollment or membership fees, you'll pay only for your food!
Most people find the cost of Medifast comparable to what they're already spending on food. Did you know that the average adult spends about $16 each day on food (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2006 Consumer Expenditure Survey)? Between the grocery store and fast food, we spend much more money on food than we realize, and we often don't make the healthiest of choices. When you also consider the additional benefits inherent in every Medifast Meal (doctor-formulated, vitamin- fortified, portion-controlled), Medifast equates to an even greater value. What's more, if you're currently spending money on prescriptions for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes, getting to a healthy weight can reduce - or even eliminate - your need for these costly meds.
