Jason’ s Story

“ I was always the funny fat guy,” says “ The Front Burner” host, Jason Hisley. A lot has changed since then.

You may know Jason as the winner of a reality TV cupcake competition, or as the executive chef and owner of the acclaimed La Cakerie, a bakery in Maryland. Here at Medifast, we know him as the winner of his own personal battle with his weight.

Jason started exercising and watching what he ate, but he hit a plateau. Medifast helped ignite his weight loss and make him a perfect fit for our new cooking series: “ The Front Burner.”

*Results Vary. Customers can expect to lose 2-5 lbs per week for the first two weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter on the 5 & 1™ Plan.

Tip of the Week

Cuts of meat that include words like “ round” or “ loin” are considered lean sources of protein, as are any ground meats labeled ≥ 95% lean.
