What’s in a Medifast meal?

Our carbohydrate-controlled, low-fat meals are all based on a similar nutritional footprint, so you’re assured of getting great nutrition every day.

Daily Lean and Green Meals

Eat 2 flexible lean and green meals per day with Medifast Achieve

You can have your lean and green meals any time of day—breakfast, lunch, dinner, or in between—whatever works best for your schedule. If you like, you can divide the meal into two portions and eat half of it at a time. The choice is yours.

Every lean and green meal includes 5 to 7 oz. of lean protein, plus three servings of vegetables and up to two servings of healthy fats, depending on your lean protein choices. You put it all together to create an “official lean and green meal” or you can break it up throughout the day to reach your daily nutritional requirement.
