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

I went to my doctor and was diagnosed with PCOS. I consulted with... Read more

I went to a Medifast center near my house. After they went through their sales pitch, they wanted to charge me $1100 for "support", not including the food. When I declined, they didn't have much time for me. I ended up buying a month's worth of their food. Much too expensive for what you get. After a week,I couldn't stomach it anymore. It was making me physically sick. I took five full... Read more

I ordered two Medifast oatmeal boxes. On the box it states that box contains seven envelopes but in instead I got six envelopes. I ordered two boxes. I know it's only two envelopes but Medifast is soo expensive that I want what I paid for. So I sent an email complaint a week ago asking for my two envelopes and got an automated response that I will receive an answer in two days. That came and... Read more

I cannot believe they advertise their meals as having any satisfactory taste whatsoever. I don't even know if I would categorize their products as food. Freeze dried backpacking food tastes gourmet next to this products. The meal replacements are the worst tasting items I have ever experienced. Worst of all they do not offer a refund on any product that has been opened. You can only exchange a... Read more

I was on the medifast diet for 5 weeks and lost 29 pounds. I never got sick... BUT, to the people that did, maybe you should have the weight loss monitored by your physician. The first couple of weeks is a shock to the body because you're going down to a 1200 calorie diet and down to less than 100 carbs a day. You will feel sick, nauseous and dizzy. The severe drop in carbs can be a real... Read more

I started to develop a weight problem after my mom passed away in 2008. I was 145 pounds for 20 years. I got married and my weight ballooned up to 190 for five years straight. I tried all other diets like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and Nutrisystem. Then a friend told me about Medifast. Since Mid-January, I have lost 19 pounds. Thank you Medifast for helping me get back to where I want to be, a... Read more

I contacted Medifast to return items bought, received return ID# and shipped it off as instructed. I put the return form with my return ID# in the box, and marked the return ID# all over the box. Now 30 days later when I call to find out why I haven't received my package, they say they haven't received it and I won't be getting my $330.88 back. The lady on the phone told me I was screwed if I... Read more
