I started the program a little over 6 months ago. I was sort of skeptical at first and even thought the nutritionists at my location were only going to try sell me their products, but nothing could've been further from the truth. Never once did they try and push more product on me than I needed (4 boxes of meal replacements each week), and they've been nothing but positive and supportive throughout the program so far. Not only do they help... Read more

I signed up for Medifast and in the second month I had the gout. My Medifast councilors blamed it on my not weighing the lean meat I ate at dinner. In the third month I got the gout again and my doctor was concerned but agreed to put me back on steroids. I went to Medifast and told them of the problems I continued to have, and they modified the program for me. In the fourth month the gout was back, my doctor would not continue prescribing...

I tried the program for 3 months and only lost about 12 pounds total. For almost starving yourself on 1000 calories, I should have lost more than that and come to find out that soy, which is the protein in many of their foods, is really bad for your thyroid. While some people can lose weight on this program, if your thyroid is compromised, this is not a good choice for you. One of my coaches and my doctor told me to eat more protein because I...

The only person at Medifast in Minnetonka that was helpful or motivating was the person selling the program! From then on all weekly visits are done by people that are just putting in their time. They only cared about my picking out the products I wanted for the next week. Not one person there is trained in nutrition or counseling . The television ads say dietitian on staff. Not true! No one knows any more about nutrition than a six... Read more

This is the second time I seriously have used the Medifast plan. The first time I was 265 pounds (I'm a male 6 foot 2 inches 66 years old today). A fellow teacher introduced me to the program and I lost 68 pounds. It has been quite a few years (since Thanksgiving 2008) and I over the years gained back to 348 pounds. This was my fault- I like to eat. I'm a scuba diver and wanted to take a solo scuba diving class in Florida. The instructor told me... Read more

Let me say I LOVE THE PRODUCT. Had a problem reciently ad customer service was SPECTACULAR. My issue is that I get multi emails about discounts available but when I called I was told that : 1. "That offer is only for NEW ADVANTAGE customers." 2. "That offer expired yesterday". 3. "That offer expired a week ago,and there are NO promotions available right now." I have read every word of all th offers that pop up on my computer and I do not... Read more

Medifast destroyed my body. I was 172 pounds for several years. Then my friend who I lived with introduced me to Medifast. She bought the food and we shared for the Summer in 2013. By 2014 I weighed 210 pounds, after losing only 25 on the system and then GAINED BACK 50 POUNDS IN ONE *** YEAR. At first I felt like sueing them for ruining me - but money won't give me my body back. I have cried many times just looking in the mirror and desperately... Read more

I was in the York Pennsylvania store and it appeared as though one of the workers was high on something. Her eyes were bloodshot and her actions weird. I guess this company does not drug test.
