Our unique approach

Effective, lasting weight control demands a highly personalized approach. As soon as you walk through the door of your local Medifast Weight Control Center,

you’ll realize you’re in a very special place: a place for YOU.

Here are some of the differences you’ll discover:

The experience:
Personalized and private

At the heart of our program is attention to you as an individual. Your health, your body composition, and even your attitude and feelings are unique?and all these factors contribute to your successful weight loss.

That?s why we take the time to really understand you and your situation, and use this understanding as we accompany you on this exciting journey toward better health.

Your comfort and privacy are essential: You always meet with a Medifast Weight Loss Counselor in a private office setting?never in a group.

The program:
Flexible options for optimal health

In addition to the Jump Start Plan for fast weight loss, we offer a range of meal plans suitable for clients with diabetes, those with gout, seniors, teens, nursing mothers, and more.

And, as you progress, your Medifast Weight Loss Counselor will work with you to choose the Medifast Meals that best suit your taste, your lifestyle, and your rate of progress.

The process:
Simple to follow
  • Initial consultation (about 45 minutes)

    We work with you to clarify your goals and create an individualized strategy to achieve them.

  • Weekly appointments (about 15 minutes each, by appointment only)
