Why I Switched from Weight Watchers to Medifast

I ddid meifast last year and was losing the weight but then I found out I was pregnant so I had to discontinue…My son is now 7 months and I am ready to get my body back.. I need to drop lbs.. I really hope I can stick to it this time around.

I am actually doing it through Take Shape for Life. I am just starting week 7 and have lost 28 pounds and 23 inches! I still have 50 more to go but I feel so much better! It is so worth it. I have tried so many things that failed. I get so excited everytime that scale moves! If I can do this anyone can. This is my 2nd time on Medifast. It is working for me! I have lost 66lbs in 13 weeks! I am so excited. I love the food! I started at lbs!

I have a whole new life! I never realized what the extra weight was doing to me emotionally. I took a slightly different route. I decided to go through Take Shape For Life. They are a division of Medifast. I am in it for a lifestyle change and it is wonderful! I love the Chocolate and Swiss Mocha shakes as well as almost every Bar they have!

I am considering trying Medifast for the very first time. I have been fortunate that my body responded as well as it did to this diet. It is better to suffer a little now, then later in life when it is too late to help you body and heart. I dont want to die because I am over weight that is a dumb reason! Congrats to everyone one the medifast plan. I too was on it in 08 and lost 30lbs. I know it is hard, but you feel so good when u drop a couple sizes and feel thinner. I am wondering if anyone out there has gained weight back after the program, I have done the program 3 times and have gained almost all the weight back each time..

I have been on the medifast 5 and 1 plan now for 3 days, starting the morning of my 4th. I stepped on the scale this morning and wow down to When I weighed in on wednesday night today is sunday I weighed in at I am excited to see what my one week weigh in is gonna be.

My goal is to lose my first 50 lbs by the end of July. I hear so many of you complaining of cost-how much is your health worth? Believe me the cost of all the medication and Dr visits will cost way more than a medifast. Take care of yourself -you are worth every penny! I placed my first order and am angiously awaiting for it to arrive. I am making myself a priority! Once I got past the inital transition period, I stopped being hungry and started being less tempted by the bad foods brought into the office on a daily basis.

My husband and I are doing this together which helps a lot! I have been on medifast for 11 days. So far I love it. Some of the foods are super delicious, others leave much to desire.

There is a lot of information on how to edit your meals to make them taste better, and then once you know what you like you can just reorder. So far over 6 pounds gone which is amazing, water weight or not I am excited!

I dont feel hungry at all as my body is in this light form of ketosis but all the added protien allows my body to not breakdown my own muscle.

I cant wait until I get to week 3 and can exercise again! If you are considering this- consider it for at least a month. Yes it is expensive but if you add up all the money you spend on groceries plus fast food, snacks drinks- they add up. I wish i had found this program years ago!

I was on this diet for 3 months. Started at and now i am down to I have stopped eating their food since december and have not gained a pound, but have been slowly losing it. Not some miracle diet. Or it could be the fact that im 19 and all medifast did was kickstart my metabolism and teach me some portion control.

For all those who have been on the Medifast Diet and have lost a lot of weight, go get a HIDA Scan done to check your gallbladder function. PLEASE, go get that gallbladder function test done after losing large amounts of weight to make sure your gallbladder is still functioning!!!!! Those of us with weight problems will likely struggle for the rest of our lives. Your more or less have to stay on a diet permanently. Losing weight quickly makes you feel good and keeps you motivated. Once you get past the first week you feel great.

I eliminated all my stomach problems and was in a great mood most of the time. I love the scrambled eggs, with a lil bit of pepper and salsa but you have to whisk them before cooking not only mix with a fork , same for the chocolate pudding…whisk well, and plaze in the freezer not the fridge for 30 minutes, so creamy and delicious! My fav shakes are the whey protein ones, like the dark chocolate shake, I add ice, and a tbsp of Black Cherry sugar free syrup which you are allowed to and blend it, super yummie, my coworker tried it and she said she would drink it without being on the plan!

I also like the Cinnamon apple oat meal, I add a little brown sugar splenda and a bit of cinnamon powder…very good. The trick with the soups is to let thme soak… at least 30 minutes. My favorite soup is the Wild rice, I add a bit of Tabasco and black pepper…wonderful and filling!

You have to stick to the plan EXACTELY…no piece of fruit here and there and no cheating, it is not good to take your body in and out of the mild kitosis Medifast puts you in. You re-learn how to eat and what a portion is really suppose to be. No miracle, nothing will work, not even surgery, if you go back to your old habits! Good luck to you! Food is not that great and is very expensive. Medifast Staff is rude.

Can not even have fruit or high carb veggies like peas. So it is hard to follow for more than a couple of months. Weight gained back very quickly even following up with a low calorie plan.

It must have something to do with maintaining low carbs or starting to eat carbs slowly. There is no mercy with this plan. You follow it exactly or you GAIN weight. Can not workout any more than 45 minutes a day or you will not loose weight. If you have to loose a lot of weight fast, go for it.

But be very careful coming off or you will gain more than you lost. I am strictly following the diet and I can say that I am not hungry!!! I have begun lightly working out the last 3 days. The state of the economy, however, has not prevented Medifast customers from attending to their expanding waistlines.

Just what is Medifast's value proposition? Customer testimonials, 20, plus alleged medical endorsements, websites owned, third-party, or something in-between -all make noise promulgating that the Medifast Program "is a lifestyle change, not just a short-term weight loss solution. So, in a crowded, dietary hippodrome filled with a plethora of options, from commercial meal replacement plans to medicinal appetite suppressants and self-help books, what are the distribution platforms used by Medifast to successfully communicate its branded message to prospective customers?

The Take Shape For Life TFSL website boasts that becoming a health coach is a business opportunity that has a low cost of start-up, requiring no holding of inventory as all orders are shipped to the end consumer. In addition, the site promotes an image where you start making money right away, with no limit to your earnings potential-as compensation is in the20form of a commission compensation on product sales made to your clients.

A closer examination of company documents and regulatory filings, however, suggests a troubling lack of transparency at Medifast: Indeed, Medifast's financial performance is not supported by the contrary evidence put forth by its peers, and is contradicted by historical experience that actually links recessions with declines in discretionary consumer spending and poorer health and nutrition of waste-conscious consumers.

Nonetheless, opinions of its critics aside, if Medifast's success going forward is measured by recruiting rates of the TSFL segment, then the company is in a healthy position to witness continued strong revenue growth in the second half of and fiscal David Phillips has more than 25 years' experience on Wall Street, first as a financial consultant and then as an equity analyst for several investment banking firms.
