Medifast’s Products and Programs are created around scientific research that shows how you can most effectively change eating patterns and gain control of your weight for the long term. Reducing the number of calories you eat is at the heart of all successful weight-loss methods. Fewer calories coming in and more calories going out means you lose weight. It’s simple—but not always easy—until now. Medifast makes it easier to eat fewer calories without feeling hungry and without sacrificing nutrition.


"I am a mother of 3 and business owner under the age of 40. I have a very demanding lifestyle and I like it that way. Unfortunately, my back and neck pain had been setting me back on a regular basis and I was getting behind in my household and business responsibilities. Not to mention, I started gaining weight due to lack of motiviation to go to the gym or exercise because of the extreme pain I was experiencing from degenerative discs in my neck and scoliosis. The lifestyle I loved, seemed harder and harder to keep up with. Then I saw an ad online for Carolina Spine and Disc Center. Finally, a non-surgical procedure and with an 86% success rate! I called and made an appointment that day and they got me in the same day. I have been going for months now and I cannot beleive how much better I feel. It really does work! Thank you Dr. Talerico for giving me not only pain relief but a permanent solution to my neck and back pain so that I can get back to living!".
