Diet Week: Day Three – Medifast

[ 0 ] December 28, 2010 |

This is the third part of a six-part diet series. Each day this week, we’ll feature a different weight loss program or plan to help you achieve your New Year’s weight loss resolution.

The Medifast weight loss program consists of five meals a day plus one Lean & Green meal, comprised of lean protein and non-starchy vegetables.

Medifast clients can order their Lean & Green meal at their favorite restaurant or fix it themselves to enjoy at the family table. The meals come in portion-controlled packets, making Medifast an excellent choice for busy people. And now, get $50 off orders of $275 or more with our Medifast coupon.

Healthy Lifestyle

Medifast is different from other weight loss programs because they promote a healthy lifestyle overhaul instead of the basic weight loss goal. Losing weight is about more than looking great in your bikini; it’s about becoming healthier. To ensure Medifast dieters are receiving the best nutrition, all Medifast meals are fortified with vitamins and minerals.

The general Medifast 5 & 1 Plan per day consists of:

  • Choosing from over 70 delicious Medifast meals, such as scrambled eggs, chili, oatmeal, shakes and pudding.
  • Eating 5 meals a day.
  • Eating at least 1 lean meat & vegetable meal per day.
  • Drinking plenty of water.
  • Never feeling hungry or feel weak from low energy since you’re eating every 2 to 3 hours.

Customized Meal Plans

Similar to Nutrisystem, Medifast has customized meal plans for men, women and diabetics. Although there’s no vegetarian plan, many of Medifast’s meal choices are vegetarian-approved, with egg-, milk-, fish- and meat-free options.

  • Women: Along with a specialized meal plan, Medifast has a unique line of shakes formulated to meet your specific health needs. Shake ingredients may help reduce symptoms of menopause.
  • Men: The men’s diet plan includes a higher Fullness Index than other weight-loss plans to keep you satisfied longer.
  • Diabetic: This plan successfully helps people lose twice as much weight than those who followed the recommended food guidelines of the ADA.
