Medifast Inc. has launched several dietary plans that can help people reduce almost 20 pounds in about a month’s time. The company supplies the food prepared in its kitchens directly to the home of its customers. So far, people who have tried this diet for losing weight found it to be considerably effective. The company claims that the weight lost with its nutritional plan will not be regained easily. It also claims that diet plan is prepared by nutritionists so it won’t be harmful to the health of its customers.
Medifast’s diet plan is high in proteins and low in calories, just like most of the diet plans in the market. However, Medifast’s products differ from other dietary foods because of the taste, and the possible options. Many diets come with trainer requirements but Medifast’s diet plan has no such requirements. This does not mean that the company advocates no exercise. Training and exercises are always needed. However, the weight loss and exercising needs are not interlinked in Medifast’s diet plans.
Another drawback of most diet plans is that people are required to count calories, carbohydrates, and grams of whatever they eat or drink. Unlike these plans, Medifast offers something that replaces meals, and people have 70 different options to choose from. Effectively, it does not feel as if the person is going on a weight loss diet.
Nutritionists at the company have found a way to ensure that weight loss is gradual and not rapid. Though the effectiveness of the plan varies from person to person, on average a person loses approximately 2 to 5 pounds every week on Medifast’s diet. Researchers admit that loss in later stages is less when compared to initial stages. Care has been taken by nutritionists and researchers employed by the company to ensure that the diets offered do not aggravate any of the existing conditions. Therefore, even though the diet is high in proteins, there are plans for elderly people who have digestion problems, and also for gout patients.
New mothers often face problems in losing weight, and they need to lose some kilos especially after the baby is born. Medifast has diet plans exclusively designed for such clients. Special diet plans for vegetarians are also available in the diet menu offered by Medifast. On average people are allowed to consume anything between 800 calories and 1000 calories in form of foods and beverages.
Medifast’s shakes are also very popular. The diet plan offered by this company is named as 5+1, which means five meals are sent by the company, and one meal consisting of green vegetables and lean meats has to be self-prepared. The diet plans have well balanced menu options, which ensure that the person opting for such a diet does not have to take any vitamins or other supplements. Nutritionists at the company also guide people on preparing that one day meal so that people learn what they should eat and how much.
As of today, the cost per meal, including the meal that the customer prepares at home would be near about 80 dollars for every week. This, however, may reach 300 US dollars each week, depending upon selected meats and other food and beverage components. However, these costs can be reduced by availing of monthly Medifast coupons. These coupons can help in saving almost $132 in a month.
The basic concept in these diet plans is to reduce hunger with proteins, and control sugar levels in the blood. Medifast has a website from where people can order such meals. In addition, such meals can also be ordered from the offices of more than 15,000 doctors practicing in different parts of the US.
