How much does Medifast cost?

Medifast meals cost only about $10/day! Most people find the cost of Medifast meals comparable to what they're already spending on food (the average adult spends about $16 each day on food, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics 2006 Consumer Expenditure Survey). Between groceries and fast foods, we spend a lot more money on food than we realize, and often don't make the healthiest of choices. Considering the additional health benefits in every Medifast Meal (doctor-formulated, 24 vitamin- fortified, portion-controlled), Medifast equates to an even greater value. In addition, if you're currently spending money on prescriptions for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes, getting to a healthy weight can reduce or even eliminate your need for these costly medications.

What is the average amount of weight loss per week?


Most people can experience weight loss averaging up to 2-5 lbs per week with Medifast. Individual results may vary, and are dependent upon various factors such as your starting weight, targeted weight loss goal, level of exercise, presence of medical conditions, use of medications, accuracy with diet compliance, etc. As with most diets, Medifast suggests that you consult with your physician prior to starting the Medifast diet.

What is a Medifast Meal?

Practically all Medifast products are "meals" since they contain protein & carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients. There are a few exceptions including Flavor Infusers™, Medifast Soy Crisps, and Medifast Crackers (Soy Crisps and Crackers are optional snacks). All other Medifast offerings, including shakes, soups, stew, chili, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, fruit drinks, iced teas, hot beverages, bars, puddings, pretzel sticks, and cheese puffs, are Medifast Meals.

Is Medifast safe?

Medifast has been clinically proven through a number of controlled studies. Since 1980, more than 20,000 doctors nationwide have recommended the Medifast diet to their patients, and more than a million people like yourself have used Medifast safely and successfully.
