Hello Everyone,

I am seeking advice on the Medifast Diet. I am 5'4" and weight 150 1bs. I am trying to lose 20 1lbs.

I was told that it was possible to lose 15 1lbs in two weeks, if I follow there program.

Have anyone tried their food or shake?

I tried a few of the products and my sister was following the 5&1 plan regularly. She loves the food! I am not fond of some of the items like the soup and oatmeal. http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley5.gif The puddings and shakes are delicious.http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley20.gif
Yes, you can lose weight if you stick to the plan. I think you could reach your goal with 4-6 weeks. I wish you the best!Edited by: kdesando

Hi Kathleen,

I was wondering if you still think Medifast if a good thing. What I really want to know if how does it work in the long run and as it is sometime since you and your sister tried it; has the weight remained off or did it come back on after finishing the program? I've been reading up at the medifast diet guide (http://www.medifastguide.com/) and I think it might work for me but I'm not 100% sure.

Hi Jim,

I just talked with my sister and asked for her input. She is back on the program and still loves it! She looks forward to eating her 5Medifast meals throughout the day. They keep her feeling satisfied without craving snacks in between.

Yes, Ido believe this is a good plan. If my husband would eat the food along with mewe would both be on it. Theweight I lost has remained off. Since I wasn't on the plan long I only lost a little weight. It is a lifestyle change. Once you reach you goal weightyou can transition to the maintenance plan.

I hope you find this helpful.
I wish you the best!

IMO, Medifast is something for people with severe obesity andshould be used asan alternative to surgery. I don't think it should be used as a fad diet or a quick fix. It really isn't for people with under 50-100 lbs to lose.

I did Medifast and lost 25 lbs in a little over a month. It wasn't bad at all and it wasdoctor regulated. I went in weekly for visits and hadmy blood checked regularly.

Unfortunately, I fell and broke my leg and had to stop it. I'm going to go back on it shortly.
