What is the Medifast Diet?
The Medifast Diet is a plan that focuses on both weight loss and diabetes control. The claim is that you can lose between 2-5 pounds per week and you won’t feel like gnawing off your arm.
Let’s find out.
The Medifast Diet Basics
The Medifast Diet is formulated to keep you full while you cut some carbs and feast on fiber, protein and medifast products.
Through the plan you reduce carb consumption to the point that the body starts using fat as a fuel instead of glycogen stores from carbs.
Medifast provides 6 meals per day, of which 5 must be one of the Medifast products which include bars, shakes, soups and snacks.
The 6th meal must include around 6 ounces of protein with veggies.
You follow this plan until you reach your goal weight and then Medifast has a line of products for weight maintenance.
As you can see, you will be relying mostly on the company’s products and reducing your portions drastically.
On the flip side, you’ll be eating more often and if Medifast’s promises are true—you’ll be full.
If you find this plan too restrictive, there is an alternative where you’re permitted two meals and a choice of your own healthy snack in addition to the Medifast supplments and meal replacements.
Again, prepare to spend some cash on the supplements/meal replacements.
How Much Does the Medifast Diet Cost?
On average you’ll be spending around $300 a month for either version of the diet. The plan includes a food journal, meal guide, and a blender bottle. They also have smaller packages to purchase and trials.
You won’t have to track food or count calories since all your meals are pre-planned or packaged for you. So if you find diets where you have to do a lot of the planning and tracking, you might find this to be worth the money to have it planned for you.
The diet itself is based on eating smaller portions and eating good foods. We say it a lot, but it seems to be based loosely on the Mediterranean Diet. This is a diet of whole grains, veggies, lean meats and fruits. You know, the good stuff. Once you start eating the right good foods, cravings subside for the bad food and if you’re eating healthy portions, weight naturally falls off.
