Yes - Works if followed exactly!

Of course it works if you don’t cheat. The trick is when you stop the program and go back to normal food. You have a coach to guide you, and encourage you. I like it.

I lost 80 pounds on Medifast over an 8 month period. I was extremely hesitant to try the program because I have taste buds that want flavour. I wasn’t crazy about it to start with, but I persevered and I got used to it to the point that some foods actually tasted good. I have to say though that there were a few foods I couldn’t stand and as far as the soups go, I found only the Chicken Noodle and Chicken and Rice passible… IF I added lots of seasoning and a chicken bouillon cube. It IS a low calorie diet and yes you can do it yourself without paying for their products… but I found that eating 6 small meals a day helps me to lose weight better than 3 meals a day (at the same calorie level) and I just hate having to prepare meals… I like the handy meal bars (specifically the chocolate, chocolate mint and peanut butter). The shakes where okay, but I found that using the hot chocolate as a shake was actually better than the shakes and better than having it as hot chocolate. The chocolate mint soft serve was also good. I basically liked mostly chocolate items (except the chocolate chip cookie), brownies, chocolate chip pancakes & chocolate pudding were also acceptable. Oatmeal took some getting used to… I would add extra cinnamon or sweetener to mine. I stayed away from the egg meals.

No - Not practical

If you absolutely must shed pounds for a medical reason, it will take pounds off. So would a bowl of oatmeal, a salad and a piece of fish each day. Any time you reduce calories below 800 per day you will lose weight. That being said, Medifast is very expensive, and not practical. How long would you be willing to live on minute amounts of pre-packaged tasteless food? It doesn’t teach you how to eat for the long haul.
