Planning ahead. “I don’t let myself get sidetracked and unprepared—that’s when I’m more likely to make an unhealthy choice.”
“Medifast is a good program based on real science. I was able to get information right up front, which gave me more faith in this program than any other. When I first ordered my Medifast, I regarded it as a tool. Now I see it was a change in thinking.”
Most diets don’t teach you anything. Medifast is different.”
“Most diets don’t teach you anything. You don’t learn which foods are good for long-term health. Medifast and Dr. A’s book showed me that it was more than just controlling what I ate. Medifast HAS a plan for transition and maintenance, and that facilitated change for me.”
“What I say to myself is I’m doing this. At first it was about my intention, my determination to get healthy once and for all. Then later the statement morphed, and came to be more like, Wow, look! It’s working! I was doing the Cherry Creek Sneak at the end of April, running hard and starting to feel like I was losing steam. I looked at the ground and said I’m doing this! and finished with my best time—better than eight years earlier.”

Medifast is the brand recommended by more than 20,000 doctors since 1980. Results vary. Clients can expect to lose 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks, and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan.
