Why do women try the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan? Because so many other diets did not work – or they see Medifast work so dramatically for a friend, family member or coworker.
Medifast designed its plan for your long-term weight loss by setting you up for success. This way, you keep losing the weight rather than losing it and then gaining it all back.
You shed the pounds by eating Medifast’s portion-controlled and carb-restricted servings, which are high in protein and low in calories. Your body reacts to the lowered caloric intake by burning fat. The protein helps you retain muscle mass, which in turn, helps burn more calories. The restriction on carbohydrates minimizes fat storage due to unused carbohydrates.
Where does Medifast succeed where others have failed? The Medifast 5 & 1 Plan teaches you how to eat a healthy, nutritious diet. In addition to the five Medifast meals, you eat a sixth meal that meets strict nutritional and caloric guidelines. Through practice, you train yourself to eat better.
As you transition off the Medifast plan, you continue to improve your eating habits, thus ensuring that you keep the fat off.
Medifast fosters an extensive community that is dedicated to losing weight and improved fitness, and is free to all Medifast customers. Get free support, free tips and free coaching.
Medifast also has a unique line of shakes, specially formulated to meet the specific health needs of women. Medifast Plus for Women’s Health Shakes contain black cohosh, echinacea, and chaste tree berry, which may help reduce symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes or night sweats. If you are already on a Hormone Replacement Therapy, consult with your doctor prior to using these shakes.
Are you pregnant and thinking about Medifast? Sorry, but you need to wait until after your baby is born.
