Medifast is a great diet and you will lose weight fast however when going off it you will gain weight fast! I went on it and lost 34 lbs in 4 and a half months, that was 10 months ago and I've gained 30 lbs back in 10 months! Bottom line IT DOES WORK - MOST OF FOOD TASTES BAD IN MY OPINION ALL POWDERED AND MIXED WITH WATER BUT WORTH IT WHEN LBS. SHED! Cost about 250 to300 monthly but you will lose the weight in 2 or 3 months if followed carefully! BEST TIP - go on facebook they have a page of Medifast users they are very inspirational and will answer any of your questions. GOOD LUCK HOPE THIS HELPS!

It's advisable to speak with your doctor before trying a new plan. Medifast is generally intended for people with significant weight to lose. Give our free Diet Finder a try and see if you're a match for Medifast. You might also find that based on your unique needs, there is something else that will work.

Hi there. I am a 27 year old female and started at 160lbs on July 5th and today September 10th I am 138lbs. I lost 22lbs in just two months and can say it works!! My worry is starting the maintenance and not gaining it back. It's a super easy diet and after the first week you won't feel hungry as long as you get all your Medifast meals in :)
