Glad to explain how Medifast works!
The Goal of Medifast is to get each individual into a VERY Mild State of Ketosis.
This is a fat burning state that is perfectly safe and decreases your HUNGER significantly and gives you amazing amounts of ENERGY!
Now the first 3-5 days, is less than enjoyable but OH So Worth it! Once you go into this mild state of Ketosis, YOU are no longer hunger, at least I have NOT been all the while on plan! Which for me is NO small Miracle!
So it makes it VERY easy to stay on plan and the Scale continues to motivate.
Now, most follow the 5&1 Plan, Which is 5 Medifast Meals which consist of Soups/Stews/Chili/Oatmeal/Puddings/Bars and Yes, Shakes!
Then each day you have a meal on your own, it's called, Lean and Green! You can have it for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner, whichever you prefer.
You are to eat Breakfast within 30 minutes of rising to get your metabolism Going! Then every 2-3 hours throughout the day eating your other meals.
I have my meals at 6 a.m. 9 a.m. Noon 3 p.m. 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.
There are tons of recipes for Both Lean and Green meals and Medifast meals.
The options are endless and the bonus is the Medifast Meals are VERY tasty!
And the longer on plan, the Better they taste!
So, that is the Readers Digest Version of the plan. Hope it helps!
First Weight-Loss Program I have been able to actually Stay on in 11 years!
Have a great night!
