The Medifast 5&1 Plan marries the science of weight loss with individualized one-on-one support for long-term and sustainable weight loss. It has been specially designed to fit into every busy lifestyle and help you find ways to incorporate the principles of weight loss and maintenance into your daily life.

How do I get started on the Medifast Weight Control Centers Program?

We recommend that you come in to one of our Centers for a free consultation. We will walk you through our entire process so you can learn more about the process and see how quick and easy it will be to reach your weight-loss goals.

Is Medifast right for me if I am a vegetarian?

Medifast offers many different vegetarian-friendly options (doesn’t contain meat or meat products, but still contain eggs and dairy) in its collection of Medifast Meal Replacements. There are also many meat-free protein sources that you can use while preparing your Lean and Green Meal. You can also check with your Medifast Weight Loss Counselor for some additional ideas.

Should I wait until the weekend or start during the week?

You can do either one, depending on what works best for you. The first three days are critical to your success, so pick a start date that makes sense for your schedule. You might want to look for a time when you don’t anticipate any family, work-related, or other social-type events that involve food, which may present additional obstacles or temptations.

What about special occasions and vacations?

Medifast understands that life happens! Special occasions come up and vacations are planned, and our goal is to help you learn how make this program work for you and your life. You don’t have to skip those special events; planning ahead means that you can enjoy them while maintaining your healthy lifestyle.

Planning ahead is crucial to sticking with Medifast while you travel. This may mean that you bring food with you or pick up food at the local grocery store to prepare for yourself. If you attending a wedding, family event or work event, it may mean eating your healthy meal at home so that you aren’t making poor choices because you are feeling hungry.

Is there support available?

Yes! Medifast is proud to offer each and every client a certified weight loss counselor that they will work throughout the duration of their program. Your counselor will be your support team and help you navigate the process. And unlike other programs, you’ll work with your counselor throughout a full year of weight maintenance as well.

How long can I stay on the Medifast Program?

As long as you are doing well and making progress, you should be able to stay on the Medifast program for as long as it takes to reach your desired goal weight.
