1 - I can succeed with enough will power.
FACT: Let's face it, willpower comes and goes daily, even hourly. Willpower alone is not enough. What you need is a clear plan and an easy, convenient diet. Medifast does all of this for you with clinically proven pre-packaged Medifast meals delivered directly to your door.
2 - Calories donít matter.
FACT: Weight loss is predominantly a function of burning more calories than you consume. Counting calories can be very difficult and is often boring and time consuming. Medifast does this for you, and our Medifast meals are the lowest calorie meal replacement foods on the market.
3 - I should only eat once or twice a day.
FACT: Doctors suggest that you eat 5-6 small meals a day. If youíre only eating once or twice a day, youíre going to be extremely hungry and will most likely overeat. Eating every 2-3 hours helps you build excellent eating habits and keeps you from getting too hungry.
4 - I have to exercise a lot.
FACT: Of course exercise is helpful. However, even if you jog for one hour, you'll burn less than 500 calories. That is still less than one McDonald's "Big Mac." The truth is, you cannot lose significant weight with exercise alone. Medifast keeps your caloric intake between 800 - 1000 calories per day, which will help you lose up to 2-5 pounds per week.
5 - Iíve tried everything out there... diets just donít work for me.
FACT: You are not destined for failure. Your diets failed either because they were too hard to stick with, or because you didn't see significant results. Medifast is easy to stick with, and you can lose 2-5 pounds per week.
6 - All diets are the same.
FACT: While losing weight is mainly a function of calories taken in vs. calories burned, diets differ widely as to how easy they are, how they satisfy your hunger, and how safe they are. Medifast foods are easy to prepare, they keep you full throughout the day because youíre eating every 2-3 hours, and Medifast has been proven to be safe and effective at Johns Hopkins University.
7 - All I have to do is eat better.
FACT: Eating healthy foods in reasonable portions is the ideal way to improve your health. However, many of us have tried this before and failed because food programs are hard to stay on. This is because there is so much work involved and cheating is so easy. A recent study at Johns Hopkins University proved that people lose twice as much weight and are twice as likely to stick with Medifast as a regular food diet.
8 - Itís too late to lose weight before summer, Iíll just be unhappy with my body for another year.
FACT: You can do it! Medifast helps you lose weight quickly, 2-5 pounds a week. Start today, and you'll be amazed at your quick results. In 2 months you can lose up to 40 pounds and be ready for summer
9 - I have to count calories and carbs.
FACT: Dieting by counting and measuring calories and carbs is not only time consuming, but frustrating as well. Most of us lead busy lives and don't have time to prepare a lot of meals, especially healthy ones. Medifast does all of the counting for you, and most meals can be prepared in less than one minute.
10 - My whole family's overweight - it's just in the genes.
FACT: While there is some correlation between genetics and obesity, this doesn't have to stop you from reaching your goals. You can lose weight with Medifast. Your health is your most precious asset - and Medifast will help you get healthier and feel great.
