Science Behind Medifast
5 Medifast Meals and 1 Lean & Green Meal
Developed by a M.D., Medifast is the brand recommended by over 20,000 doctors since 1980. The Medifast 5 & 1 Plan is clinically proven to be safe and effective.
Medifast Meals are individually portioned, calorie- and carbohydrate-controlled, low-fat meal replacements. Every Medifast Meal is based on a similar nutritional “footprint” that provides just the right balance of protein, carbohydrates, and fiber. Medifast Meals are fortified with at least 24 vitamins and minerals for optimal nutrition.
After being on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan just a few days, your body shifts to a mild fat-burning state so you can lose weight quickly while preserving muscle tissue.
- You eat six meals a day, once every two to three hours. Those six meals include five Medifast Meals and one Lean & Green Meal daily.
- Medifast meals are formulated to be filling and satisfying to help fight hunger.
- Lose weight quickly and safely.
- Medifast Meals go with you anywhere, so the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan fits in with even the busiest lifestyles.
Other weight-loss plans can say they’re safe and effective, but Medifast has proof.
