Most Popular Diets of 2012
Number 3: Medifast
2011 Rank: #6
Medifast made an impressive jump in to the top five this year, but they've been a mainstay on our Most Popular Diet list since its inception. Medifast maintains popularity amongst the weight loss surgery crowd, because of its soft- and liquid-diet components, but has provided legitimate weight loss for those cutting pounds without surgery. The diet, made of a variety of soups, shakes, puddings, oatmeal, and more, makes pre-surgery weight loss possible and eases recovery as these patients learn a completely new way of eating.
While breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided through shelf-stable packages shipped monthly, dinner is handled by the dieter themselves. It's called a Lean and Green Meal and consists of lean protein and vegetables of choice - like grilled salmon with a spinach salad and asparagus.Next Prev Slide 3 / 25
