Individual Assessment of Your Needs
On your first visit, you’ll meet with a professional consultant who’s sincerely interested in you and helping you succeed in regaining control of your weight and your life. You’ll discuss your history, your situation, your issues, and your goals. This not only lets your Weight Loss Consultant get to know you and determine which path will be best for you to follow, but also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you have about Medifast. We go above and beyond to ensure that your personalized weight loss program will lead to weight loss success.
Body Composition Analysis: Beyond The BMI
Everyone is unique, and so is every Medifast® weight loss plan. Our personalized plans can accommodate everyone from teens to seniors, and every weight loss goal, no matter if that is 10 pounds or 100+ pounds! Medifast Weight Control Centers use Biospace’s InBody technology to provide you with a detailed assessment of your body composition. InBody gives you an accurate assessment of your body’s unique makeup, along with the ability to continually track the changes as you lose weight. With InBody, you can actually see that your progress is healthy, and that your weight loss is targeting harmful body fat, not lean muscle. InBody Measures:
- Skeletal muscle mass
- Body fat mass and overall body fat percentage
- Water balance (identifies dehydration and swelling)
- Muscle development in arms, trunk, and legs
Unlike diet plans, Medifast makes it easy to eat right in the real world. A combination of healthy homemade meals and our specially formulated Medifast Meals are key to changing old habits and achieving new weight loss success. Medifast® Meals are meal replacements different from any you’ve ever tried. The doctor-developed formula includes a balance of protein and fiber that helps keep you feeling full and satisfied, along with 24 vitamins and minerals so you lose pounds, not nutrition.
We offer more than 70 meals to choose from, including shakes, soups, chili, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, garlic mashed potatoes, iced teas, hot beverages, bars, pretzel sticks, cheese puffs, puddings, and more. All are low in fat and have similar nutritional footprints, so you can eat the ones you want and get great nutrition every day. Many are even certified gluten free. Whether you’re craving something hot, cold, sweet, savory, creamy, or crunchy, there’s always a healthy option.
The Medifast Meal Advantage: How They Work
The balance of fiber and protein in Medifast Meals helps you feel full and satisfied. Because you’re eating something every two to three hours, it’s easier to resist the foods and eating patterns that stand between you and your goals.
Safe, Sustainable Soy
Most Medifast Meals are made from soy, though some contain egg or whey protein. Soy, a low-fat, plant-based protein, is perfectly safe—and there is plenty of reliable, long-term scientific data to prove it.*
Each Medifast meal replacement is fortified with the essential vitamins and minerals you need for a healthy sustained weight loss. Our carbohydrate-controlled, low-fat meal replacements are all based on a similar nutritional footprint, so you're assured of getting great nutrition every day.
Medifast Weight Control Centers are with you every step of your weight loss journey, even after you’ve met your weight loss goal. Our professional consultants teach you portion control, behavior modification, and practical tips that will lead to weight loss success! Medifast Weight Control Centers not only offer one-on-one counseling and support: you can access healthy recipes for home cooking, so that weight loss really can fit your lifestyle.
We have Dietitians and Nutritionists in each Center and trained professionals who listen, inform and provide encouragement while teaching you how to make healthy, long-term lifestyle changes.
Once you’ve achieved your weight loss goal, the challenge is to keep it off in a world where sugar, snacks, and fattening foods are everywhere. Our consultants will help you keep off the weight with our new Thrive for Healthy Living Program, which includes new Thrive by Medifast™ products and exclusive educational modules. This is why Medifast succeeds where other diets fail you!
A large weight-loss study** published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) entitled, "Comparison of strategies for Sustaining Weight Loss", found that personal counseling is an effective strategy for maintaining weight loss over the long term.
