Plenty of weight-loss and diet-oriented web sites make promises. Medifast isn’t interested in “promises” but rather has made a career out of research, development, implementation and, most importantly, results.
Medifast isn’t the run-of-the-mill, meal-packaging diet program. Certain aspect of Medifast, including mailed-to-you-meals, mirrors other diet-oriented web sites. But that is seemingly where the similarities stop.
Medifast is doctor-approved and driven by a plethora of clinical research that helped create an eating mentality that isn’t about quick fixes or weight-loss that doesn’t stick. Medifast wants its clientele to eat and put together a plan that features six meals per day.
This type of “dieting” helps jump-start your metabolism and allows you to feed at just the right time and with just the right food choices. Too often, weight-loss is associated with a lack of eating, which is completely incorrect.
More food is good, as long as the choices are smart. Medifast created a program that is realistic – not starvation – and encourages long-term changes and isn’t a “fad” diet. Cutting carbohydrates and only eating vegetables certainly have their place but Medifast believes in changing for good – not just the a few weeks or months.
That aforementioned “change” is wholeheartedly supported by Medifast and various support mechanisms, including the “Shape for Life” and “MyMedifast.”
The latter is an online community that allows customers to share in their highs and lows with others that are in similarly challenging situations. Nothing puts weight-conscious consumers in a better frame – literally and figuratively – than knowing they’re not alone.
The “Shape For Life” is optional but highly recommended. Those who enroll are assigned a coach that is available to answer questions or help see the journey to a healthier lifestyle all the way through.
Other than much-needed support, Medifast doesn’t contract out its food or meals but rather makes the majority in-house. These meals are designed with all shapes, sizes and types of customers in mind, even if an ailment such as Diabetes exists. The most popular option is the four-week variety package, which sports an eclectic mix of foods, snacks and even dessert items.
When it comes to weight loss, credibility is paramount. Medifast makes its mark in the industry without powders, gimmicks or subpar slogans. Medifast employs a straight-forward sales pitch that resonates with clients as an all-encompassing, life-changing program.
