The science behind Medifast

The Medifast Program has been helping people lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, since 1980. Medifast programs and products were developed by a physician and have been clinically proven in numerous studies conducted by major university teaching hospitals. Medifast is the brand recommended by over 20,000 doctors and used by more than 1 million customers since 1980. Medifast Meals are nutritionally complete, low-calorie and low-fat-providing everything your body needs to lose weight quickly and safely.

Medifast Meals contain a medically designed balance of protein and carbohydrates, as well as 24 or more essential vitamins and minerals per serving – ensuring your daily nutritional requirements are met while you lose weight on the program. Unlike fad diets that restrict a specific macronutrient such as protein or carbohydrates, Medifast is nutritionally balanced, allowing you to maintain lean muscle as you lose weight. This helps you continue to burn fat as you transition and maintain your weight for long term.

Most Medifast Meals are formulated with heart-healthy* soy protein, which may help reduce the risk of heart disease according to some research studies. Soy’s naturally occurring isoflavones may also help reduce the risk of bone fractures and osteoporosis. Soy protein is a complete protein, providing all of the essential amino acids. Medifast also manufactures a product line formulated with whey protein, for clients who have an allergy or intolerance to soy or prefer a non-soy product.

*25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
