Should I do a Complete Meal Replacement or Modified Plan?

Complete Meal Replacement
The complete program allows you to lose weight at a more rapid rate than the modified program. Medifast recommends that those on the complete program consume five to six Medifast supplements (Medifast 55 or 70) per day with no regular food. Weight loss on this program is typically 3-7 pounds per week. This option is recommended if you prefer to avoid all food choices and have a significant amount of weight to lose. We recommend that the MedSlim physician medically supervise this program.

Modified Plan
The modified program was designed for individuals who have medical or social needs that make it difficult to avoid all regular food. Weight loss on this program typically ranges between 2 to 4 pounds per week. Medifast recommends that those on the modified program consume four to five Medifast supplements (Medifast 55 or 70) per day, plus a daily meal consisting of lean meat and a salad or vegetable.

We recommend a modified plan for most patients, as many people prefer to eat one regular meal per day in addition to their Medifast supplements. We recommend that a qualified medical practitioner medically supervise your program.

You may switch back and forth between the Complete Meal Replacement program and Modified program option. For example, you may do a complete meal replacement plan during the week and a modified plan on the weekend. Complete program instructions and suggested meal options are included with your order!

You may also substitute other Medifast® meal replacements (bars, creamy soups, oatmeal, tea and chili) once or twice a day in place of shakes. Medifast has formulated these supplements to compliment your Medifast program so that you have more choices and variety as well as a better opportunity for success!

Because of the rate of weight loss on the Medifast program, we recommend that you consult with the MedSlim physician before starting. To get started on your weight loss program call us at 813 969-4473 or email us at medslim@family-dr.com to set up a consultation.
