Medifast Diet Plan Review - Real Weight Loss

The Medifast Diet has gotten lots of press lately; and for good reason. Its been shown to be very successful at its stated goal of assisting with relatively quick and comfortable weight loss.

The diet program involves almost complete meal replacements. These replacements are custom designed for maximum nutrient content as well as low calories (naturally). Their usual diet plan involves using these meal replacements 5 times day, as well as having one "lean and green" meal each day that you prepare yourself; which typically is comprised of some veggies and a lean piece of meat. The meal replacements come in many varieties of shakes, bars, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, soups, puddings, etc. You don't go hungry since you are eating every 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

The Medifast weight loss solution has been shown to be effective by many studies. It's more appropriate for someone who wants to lose more than twenty pounds; since such an extensive use of replacement meals is a significant lifestyle change. But if you want to lose more than 20 lbs, then this may be the answer. Because your food intake is so controlled; you basically cannot help but lose weight. 5 lbs a week is typical.

After reaching your goal, the next phase of the program kicks in - 'Transition'. Here you are re-introduced to regular foods, but in a planned way so that you can keep your new weight. After transitioning back to your own foods; the 'Maintenance' program activates, which is designed to help you make healthy food choices and get appropriate exercise.

The best thing to do is to have a look at their site (linked below) and go from there.
