When you Take Shape For Life, you're fueled by the Medifast 5 & 1 PlanŽ. With more than 70 meals—from Shakes to Soft Bakes—you'll never tire of good nutrition. Each Medifast Meal has the same nutritional profile, with a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals and about 100 calories.
The Plan is simple: eat a Medifast Meal five times a day, 2 - 3 hours apart, and one Lean & Green Meal™ for lunch or dinner. That's it! We help you with serving suggestions and recipes for your Lean & Green, and you can find all the important Plan details here.
Once you've reached your goal weight, you'll begin to transition, adding extra servings of fruits, vegetables, and healthy sources of protein. And our maintenance plan will help you keep your svelte shape for life!
Each of our Medifast Meals is scientifically formulated to be almost nutritionally identical to the next. That's why you can choose any five of our more-than-70 low-calorie, low-glycemic Meals and get all the nutrition your body needs to lose fat and retain muscle. The Plan is designed to help you lose a significant amount of weight while keeping you full and satisfied.
Medifast Meals are doctor-designed nutrition. They are low glycemic, low in calories, scientifically formulated with the best proportion of macronutrients (carbs, protein, and fat) and fortified with the optimal vitamins and minerals. And each meal has a similar nutritional footprint, so you can swap them and still be thoroughly nourished!
Numerous studies at major university teaching hospitals have proven Medifast Meals to be safe and effective. Studies published in major medical journals have proven meal replacements to be an effective method of weight loss and weight maintenance.
