Product & Plan FAQs


Can I use Medifast products as part of my weight Maintenance Plan?

Yes, we encourage continued use of Medifast Meals to help you prevent regaining the weight you lost. In fact, most people use 2 or 3 Medifast Meals per day as part of their ongoing Maintenance Plan. You may also use a Medifast Meal as a protein source in your regular meal, adding other foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, or a salad to maintain a healthy nutritional balance. For more information, refer to the Maintenance Guide (PDF).

Our Essential1: Calorie Burn line of products was specifically designed to assist with weight maintenance as it boosts your metabolism to prevent weight re-gain.
