Dieters on Medifast do typically lose weight, especially in the beginning. The diet calls for only to 1, calories to be ingested on a daily basis. However, the level of weight loss success ultimately depends on the ability of a participant to stick to all the rules set forth by Medifast.

Even though weight loss can be expected by those following the diet program to a tee, the amount of weight loss is greatly contested. I think the results are overstated in a lot of the publicity and that was the biggest drawback for me. Nonetheless, let that stand as a warning: ask your doctor before you start Medifast or any other diet.

Medifast says it is safe and effective and used by doctors for years. Each meal has essentially the same nutritional profile, and has been designed to have enough low-fat protein and healthy fiber to help you feel full and satisfied, without the between-meal hunger that can sabotage a weight loss plan.

It can work and it is safe, however it may be more difficult to maintain the weight loss after discontinuing the program. Does Medifast put you in Ketosis? Does Medifast food expire? Each package of food does have an expiration date.

A study of 20 men found that when the men ate breakfast as four small snacks instead of one larger meal, they experienced reduced appetite over the day. The men eating four small snacks ate fewer calories later in the day when they were allowed to eat as much as they liked from a buffet. They also had lower levels of ghrelin and higher levels of GLP-1, indicating decreased hunger 1. Another study of men and women found that substituting a meal with a low-calorie meal replacement bar successfully reduced hunger compared to a conventional meal 8. By providing a controlled, low-calorie diet in a way that helps reduce hunger and cravings, Medifast helps reduce your total calorie intake. In addition to meal replacement, Medifast also provides some education and other support for weight loss, such as encouraging diet followers to keep a food journal.
