I had several issues with Medifast, the first one was I asked for help in getting the CPT codes to file my claim for reimbursement with my insurance company for the weekly lifestyle change counseling, I was told by Brad Potterfield that they didn't have codes but was directed to purchace a book with codes. When I first signed up, I told the person at the local center that my insurance would... Read more

Ordered one month supply of "favorite" foods. Couldn't stomach any of them. Strong aftertaste. Which was the only taste there was. Dehydrated food, soy based. Bad. Diet doesn't allow any dairy or fruit. Very little real protein. Very expensive in my opinion. Complaints about customer service made me decide to just throw it away. Would not recommend. I have tried other dehydrated diets... Read more

This is my 2nd day of Medifast. First the Mac and cheese made he almost puke! It stinks, hard to make and raw liver would taste better. I've had nasty food in my day but nothing this bad! Add comment

Of course you'll lose weight with a super low calorie intake. Still, it was only .5 -1 lbs per week, usually on the low end, not what ads lead you to believe. I followed plan exactly. Within a few weeks I developed a B vitamin deficiency, my hair was dull, & I felt fatigued. Food is highly processed, loaded with preservatives & fake nutrition. I lost weight but gained it all back when... Read more

I never received any pills which is why I didn't know what it was I also have not received any re-compensation atall and customer service is awful.... Read more

Medifast meals are mostly soy. Two medical facts: Eating a lot of soy can give hypothyroidism/low thyroid function. If you already take thyroid supplements for hypothyroidism, soy blocks absorption of the medication. I take thyroid meds. After being on the Medifast diet for five weeks my energy bottomed out, I felt bone tired and my hair fell out in handfuls. My coach originally told me not to... Read more

I believe a majority of the complaints are from some who really are not ready to commit to the program and decided not to consult with their physician before doing the program. Also, going to the Clinic's is a waste of money. If you are serious about weight loss, willing to spend the money for the food, then commit to it and join the online community for support and weigh yourself. It truly isn't... Read more

Medifast does not work. They hire already fit, skinny people to sell, sell, sell and not relent until they sell you on a $1000.00 packet. You are their number one priority, they are super friendly until you give them money; then you are just a number and when you go in to be weighed and for "consult" all they do is consult you on what you are going to purchase next. They give you 3 days to cancel... Read more

I signed up for the local center... and it cost me more than $1400 for the services, not including food... (they REQUIRE you to pay for a full year of support, in addition to the weight loss, which I found to be totally predatory, before you even try the weekly weight loss and service). I lost weight during the first three months, then fell off the VERY strict diet... and all the lecturing I got... Read more
