I am 39-years-old and live in Sacramento, CA. At the height of my weight gain, I was 368 pounds. At that time, I suffered myriad of weight-related medical problems, including high blood pressure, heart palpitations, and back spasms.
I have attempted virtually every diet available through the years, including frozen diet meals, counting points, weight-loss shakes, the no-carb diet and even a professional dietician. These diets worked for a brief period, but I soon found that I could not keep up with the program and not only gained the weight back, but more. The future looked hopeless, and I thought that gastric bypass was the only option.
However, in researching gastric bypass options, I stumbled upon the Medifast site on the Internet. After reading the material, I decided to give the Medifast program a try before committing to surgery.
The Medifast program is absolutely unbelievable! The food is outstanding, nutritious and satisfying. It is also extremely easy to follow and the meals are quick to prepare. It is also relatively inexpensive. The thing I like about the plan the most is its simplicity - five Medifast Meals a day from a large variety of choices and one sensible meal. It virtually eliminates the shopping and preparation factor that is prevalent in most other diets.
Since beginning my diet, I have lost approximately 163 pounds.
I went from a size 54L suit to a 44L.
In addition, each and every weight-related medical problem I had is gone now that I've lost the weight.
And I did it all on Medifast and did not have to resort to surgery!
I can very sincerely say that Medifast has changed my life.
*Results vary. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan® is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter.
