Weight Loss: Medifast

What is Take Shape for Life?

Nearly 67% of U.S. Adults are overweight! Many of us start diets time and again, only to quit after limited, if any, success.

Weight loss need not be difficult. We don't need to feel deprived of foods we love. And weight loss does not have to be expensive; in fact, weight loss can save us not only pounds, it can save us money.

What are Medifast Meals?

Medifast has helped more than one million people lose weight and has been recommended by more than 15,000 physicians.  Medifast Meals are clinically proven, nutritionally balanced, low calorie and low fat --providing everything your body needs to lose weight quickly and safely.

Do they contain harmful herbs or additives?  No.  Medifast Meals do not contain any added stimulants like Ephedra, or other herbs that might be harmful to your body.

Medifast Meals and Heart Disease

Medifast Meals qualify as Heart Healthy products by the FDA and "may reduce the risk of heart disease" (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).  Obesity has been linked to many diseases, including:  Diabetes, Heart Disease, Stroke, Hypertension, Arthritis, and some forms of Cancer.

Clinically Proven

Medifast Meals have been clinically proven in studies conducted by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (one of the premier medical/research institutions in the world) and the National Institutes of Health.  In the Johns Hopkins study, males lost an average of 67.41 pounds and females lost an average of 47.5 pounds over a sixteen-period.

Medifast Meals are physician recommended for more than eight years, the Johns Hopkins Weight Management Center has chosen Medifast Meals for its very-low-calorie-diet (VLCD) program patients.

How Medifast Works

The Medifast Plan was medically designed to create a calorie deficit, allowing your body to burn fat for energy.  Each nutritionally balanced Medifast Meal is formulated with a proven combination of carbohydrates and protein, allowing you to successfully lose weight while maintaining lean muscle mass.  The 5 & 1 Plan provides between 800 and 1,000 calories per day for five (5) portion-controlled, nutritionally balanced Medifast Meals, plus one (1) Lean & Green meal.
