Medifast Meal Plans


The Medifast 5 & 1 Plan is the basic plan for weight loss used by most Medifast clients. Medifast Meals are low-fat and have a low glycemic index. They are safe for clients with type 2 diabetes. Many have been certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization, with more certifications to follow. In addition, through continual research and careful testing, Medifast has developed special meal plans so that more of our clients can use Medifast products to successfully lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Medifast has developed plans for vegetarians, people with diabetes, teens, seniors, nursing mothers, people with gout, and people undergoing bariatric surgery. We also have detailed plan information for those taking anticoagulants and for those who choose to avoid soy.


Studies prove that when it comes to adopting healthy habits, encouragement and understanding can make a big difference. Medifast helps you achieve long-lasting weight-loss results through the power of clinically proven nutrition, along with the support you need to make lasting changes. Because everyone is different, we offer you four ways to get support for your weight loss, depending on your personal preference: You can purchase Medifast directly online or through our Contact Center, and get encouragement and information from MyMedifast, our online support community. You can choose Take Shape For Life and get a knowledgeable Health Coach who will guide you through the program for free. You can visit a Medifast Weight Control Center for a comprehensive program and personalized counseling. You can work directly with your physician. Medifast will meet you whenever you're ready, wherever you are in your weight-loss journey, helping you regain hope, health, and happiness.


You can order Medifast products online or call us at (800) 209-0878. Your Medifast Meals will be shipped directly to your door. With over 70 different foods and flavors, you'll find plenty of things you'll like. You can choose specially priced packages or pick your own favorites. Medifast is economical, too. The cost for your Medifast Meals - five of your six daily meals on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan - is only about $11 a day. And, because you can lose weight so quickly on the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan, you can spend less to lose the same amount of weight compared to other weight-loss plans. Medifast was developed by a physician and has been recommended by more than 20,000 doctors since 1980. Medifast products are scientifically formulated to be filling and satisfying so you don't feel hungry. You lose weight quickly - up to 2 to 5 lbs per week. And each Medifast Meal is fortified with vitamins and nutrients, so you lose pounds and inches without losing out on essential nutrition.


The Medifast 5 & 1 Plan for weight loss is simple. Each day, you eat six times, once every two to three hours. The plan puts your body in a mild fat-burning state so you lose weight quickly and safely without taking weight-loss drugs or missing out on nutrition. You choose five Medifast Meals (the "5") and one self-prepared Lean & Green Meal (the "1"), consisting of measured portions of lean protein and non-starchy vegetables. You can make the Lean & Green Meal yourself, or order it in a restaurant. The plan is easy to follow, with no guesswork and no counting of carbohydrates, calories, or points. Medifast Meals are portable and are either ready to eat right out of the package or mix easily with water. It's the perfect fast weight-loss plan for those with busy lifestyles. It's even easy and convenient to chart your progress using the logs on, your one-stop online home for weight-loss support, information, and connections with other Medifast clients.


Up to 85% of people who lose weight on diets regain that weight within a year, often with additional pounds. To counteract this trend, Medifast supports you with a new, comprehensive, multi-focal approach to prevent weight regain once you have reached your healthy weight goal. As you transition out of the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan over several weeks, you'll gradually reintroduce additional healthy foods and increase your calories to meet your body's individual calorie requirement for weight maintenance. The Maintenance Plan uses sound principles of proper nutrition and portion control to "retrain" your brain and body to be satisfied with appropriate portions of healthy food choices. That way, you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy weight and improved well-being for months, years - or forever!
