    Pros: You might loose weight
    Cons: You will spend plenty of money.

    Summary: Sure you will lose weight if you follow there plan,  although I am not convinced anyone will keep weight off for very long.  THere program involves buying a bunch of bars, shakes, soups and other products.  You also have to ... read more

    Pros: Easy to follow, No cravings, "Idiot Proof!"
    Cons: Restrictive, no fruit allowed until weight loss goal is met.

    Pros: Never felt hungry.  Very simple meals.  Free Health Coach!
    Cons: Cost (but that was fixed with coupon codes).

    Pros: Works well and quickly. 
    Cons: Oatmeal is very hard for me to eat

    Summary: I purchased the 2 week pre-packaged Medifast program since I didn't know what I was going to like or dislike.  I just wanted to lose 10-15 pounds and this is an easy way to lose those last few pounds.  I have done programs like this before so I ... read more

  • Of course it works

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: You will lose weight
    Cons: Ridiculously expensive."Food" is disgusting.Drinks taste like aspartime with water and food coloring added.

    Summary: This plan is ridiculous! It's just a bunch of liquid, freeze-dried, processed food.  Of course you will lose weight because it's low calorie.  All of the hype about soy protein and each (liquid) meal being "complete" is just another sales pitch ... read more

    Pros: Good food
    Easy to do
    Not hungry
    WORKS!
    Cons: None

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: No wiggle room that can lead to failure. WORKS. Satisfies.
    Cons: Very little actual food, which may be a problem for some.

    Summary: I would like to start with an explanation of the prefix "medi"(the reviewer below seemed confused by it) which is simply the first few letters of the word "medical". Medical, because the supplements in this program meet nutritional standards at a ... read more

  • Not so 'fast'

    Pros: Easy to follow
    Cons: Weight loss is slow

    Summary: I have just finished my second week on medifast and weighed in this morning. I started at 190, after one week on the 5+1 plan was at 187.7, and after a week on the 'complete' plan have dropped to 184.9. That is just 5 pounds in two weeks. Sigh... ... read more

    Pros: Portable & convenient. Very few cravings after the first month.
    Cons: Expensive. Shipping sometimes took 4 days, sometimes 20.

    Summary: After many failed attempts at dieting and combos of diet and exercise I decided to go with guerilla tactics and put myself on a meal replacement diet plan. This definitely takes all the guesswork and most of the pre-planning out of losing weight which ... read more

  • Medifast works well, high in protein

    Mar 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Effective if you stick with it, tastes great!
    Cons: Very strict, hard for those with big appetites and who eat large portions of food

    Summary: Weight loss is very complicated. It isn't as easy as just saying "I want to lose weight" and deciding what diet to go on. A person who is 50+ pounds overweight obviously has a lifestyle that supports that weight, their lifestyle is what needs changing, ... read more

  • Medifast and Ketosis

    Mar 18, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great diet as long as you stay with it and don't stray from it.
    Cons: Great weight gain IF you go off it without a transition period.

    Summary: I have found this to be exactly like the Lindora program. I can remember being on the Lindora, years ago, and the idea was EXACTLY the same. Matter of fact, I thought perhaps Medifast had some sort of tie-in with Lindora ... What's amazing, is, you ... read more

    Cons: If you aren't commited, you will not succeed on the plan.

    Summary: I've been on MediFast for almost 9 months and I've lost 110 pounds. After reading some of the reviews below, keep in mind most of negative reviews didn't follow the plan. The most common error I read was " salad for dinner" and 500 calories per day. This ... read more
