(Read Kate's true Medifast testimonial...)
On some other diets, I felt drained. It took all the energy I could muster just to drag through the day. That is another good thing I found about this plan.
On the Medifast 5 & 1 Plan, your body enters a fat-burning state, also known as “mild ketosis” that helps you achieve rapid weight loss while providing sufficient levels of energy. I think that is one reason it works so well.
My online friends agree.
I am on a healthful journey with Medifast and being a severe hypoglycemic, I don’t feel the shakes or like I will faint having the protein supplements every couple of hours. If nothing else, it taught me that I NEED to eat every 2 or 3 hours to feel well and that alone is a lesson well worth it. Most people don’t eat 6 times a day and that’s why they feel hungry and tired and then reach for the sweets. — Nancy
We have tons of more energy. In our first weeks we were losing around 5 to 10 lbs, now we are losing from 1 to 5 lbs a week. My husband and I have been on the program for 15 weeks. To date my husband has lost 105 lbs and went from size 50 to 38 and I am down 48 lbs and went from size 20 to 14. We both have more to go. But after trying every other program out there, this one is by far the best. It cannot be any easier. The food is good all you need is water. How simple. — Elise and her husband
I used Medifast to lose weight for the army. I lost 40 lbs in about 4 1/2 months. It really works. It doesn’t make you lose muscle since I was able to pass all of my pushup and sit up tests along with a two mile run. I felt really healthy on this diet and had a lot of energy. I'm pregnant right now and have gained about 20 lbs so far in 6 months. I'll definitely be going back to Medifast after the baby is born! — Charlie
