Nutrition Counseling & Support

Nutrition Counseling & Support

Weight loss is so much more than simply cutting calories and adding in a little bit of exercise. There are so many emotions, behaviors and habits associated with eating and one’s weight that it can sometimes be difficult to imagine how weight loss is actually possible.

Medifast understands how important it is to approach weight loss from both the physical and emotional perspective, which is what sets us apart from other weight loss programs.

We believe that nutrition counseling is crucial for anyone looking to lose weight. With the tremendous amount of information and resources out there, it can be confusing at times, to make healthy choices. Medifast nutrition support understands this need for accurate information and personalized support in order to help you succeed.

What is the Medifast Nutrition Support System?

Medifast is proud to include access to certified weight loss counselors that give you one-on-one nutrition support throughout your entire weight loss journey, and even into the first year of maintenance. Most of our weight loss counselors have an educational background in nutrition, nursing, kinesiology or healthcare. Their knowledge and experience can help you fit Medifast into your daily life easily and effectively.

You don’t just get support and motivation from the nutritional support services that Medifast offers. Our certified counselors also services such as:

  • Testing for ketosis, which is a fat burning state
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Taking a weekly weight
  • Performing a body composition analysis every 4 weeks
  • Monitoring your blood pressure and vital signs
  • And of course, celebrating your successes with you

Nutrition Counseling

As part of the Medifast program, you will meet with your counselor for a brief, yet informative meeting each week. This appointment will last around 15 to 20 minutes and will give you information about your weekly progress and suggestions for staying, or getting back on track.

  • Weight
  • Skeletal muscle mass
  • Body fat percentage
  • Water balance
  • Muscle development

This analysis gives you much more information than a simple weight, and can help you see how muscle development and water retention will affect the scale and your progress.

Nutrition Support Beyond Weight Loss

Once you’ve reached your weight loss goals, the work of maintaining that loss begins. This, unfortunately, is where a lot of people start to break the healthy habits that they formed while losing weight. Your nutrition support team will stay with you during this crucial time as you are transitioning back into eating a regular diet. They will help you learn how to make healthier meals and make better choices at restaurants, all to support your new lifestyle.
