The Medifast Plan – Does Medifast Work?
By Jenni Kerala

If you’ve been thinking about using Medifast for your diet, you probably have one very important question: Does Medifast work?

I can tell you that it does work, but since I’m pretty sure you want to hear more than that, let’s take a look at the Medifast diet plan and hopefully I can answer not only the question, “Does Medifast work?” but also, “why” it works.

What is the Medifast Plan?

Medifast is essentially a very low calorie meal replacement program. The Medifast foods come in the form of shakes, bars, soups and other items and they are the mainstay of the program. The meal replacement items are designed to meet all of your nutritional requirements.

In addition to the packaged foods, you’ll also eat one lean & green meal that you prepare for yourself each day, made up for protein and vegetables; for example, roast chicken and big salad.

Why does Medifast work?

I think one of the big reasons that Medifast works is that in addition to the program being quite low calorie (around 1000 calories a day), it also tends to be low carb as well. By eliminating many of the carbs we usually eat, Medifast helps reduce the constant cravings for more food. Most Medifast dieters find that after the first 3-4 days, they no longer feel hungry all the time so the temptation to cheat isn’t always getting in the way.

The other reason that I think the program works is that it eliminates a lot of the mealtime planning. In all likelihood, you could probably loose a similar amount of weight following a plan like Atkins or the South Beach diet, but both of those diet plans will involve a lot more time dedicated to planning your meals, and thus, thinking about food constantly. But with Medifast, you only really have to think about one meal per day.

Eventually you’ll have to start thinking about food again someday — when you’ve lost your weight and need to plan how you’re going to keep that weight gone. But I think there’s a lot to be said for not having to worry so much about every meal while you are actively dieting. It can help break that cycle, particularly if you get a bit obsessive about food.

So I think if you’re looking for a solid diet plan, especially if you have a significant amount of weight to lose, then Medifast is worthy of your consideration. Medifast does work, especially if you follow the plan. And with the variety of foods that they offer, it’s really not a difficult plan to follow either.
