You'll start Medifast with the 5 & 1 Plan®, our weight-loss phase. You'll eat 5 Medifast Meals, one every 2-3 hours, and 1 Lean & Green™ Meal at the time that's most convenient for you. And you'll lose weight!
You can expect to lose 2–5 pounds per week during the first two weeks and 1–2 pounds each week thereafter on the 5 & 1 Plan. It's safe, effective, and designed to meet your nutrition needs.
Here's what your day could look like. Simply alter the times and the foods to suit your personal preference.
Breakfast, the first meal of the day, jump starts your metabolism. Be sure to have yours - or your first Medifast Meal - within one hour of waking.
Spread your daily calorie requirement over six small meals throughout each day.
Drink enough water every day to stay hydrated and full.
