    Summary

    The Medifast Program is a no-nonsense diet plan that delivers meals to their customers in conjunction with shakes. This review focuses only on the shakes that they are pushing as meal replacement options, and therefore should not be confused with their other diet plan.

    Like many other shakes, they use soy as their basis for protein, which is a red flag for our editors. Not only do they rely heavily on soy, they also include milk isolate, which is an allergen and less effective form of protein for the body. As for sweeteners, they utilize fructose which is not a good option in terms of weight management.

    Ingredients

    Soy – In our opinion, soy is not an ideal protein source, as there are a lot of alternatives out there. Recent studies have linked soy proteins to thyroid issues, food allergies, danger for pregnant or nursing women, immune system problems, and much more.

    Fructose – This simple sugar can cause liver malfunction. Instead of balancing sugar levels, it can actually cause fatty tissue formation and cause weight gain.

    Acesulfame potassium What’s in it: Acesulfame-K is a potassium salt containing methylene chloride, a known carcinogen.Reported side effects: Long term exposure to methylene chloride can cause nausea, headaches, mood problems, impairment of the liver and kidneys, problems with eyesight and possibly cancer. Acesulfame-K may contribute to hypoglycemia. Concerns: Of all artificial sweeteners, acesulfame-K has undergone the least scientific scrutiny. Early studies showed a potential link between the sweetener and development of multiple cancers in laboratory animals. Acesulfame potassium is a calorie-free sugar substitute, also known as Acesulfame K or Ace K. In the U.S., it is used in such products as candies, baked goods, frozen desserts, beverages, dessert mixes and tabletop sweeteners. The FDA, which is the governmental agency responsible for ensuring the safety of all foods, has approved acesulfame potassium for use in numerous food products.

    Artificial Flavors – The search for “natural” sources of chemicals often requires that a manufacturer go to great lengths and expenses to obtain a given chemical. For this reason, synthetically produced flavors are frequently used in foods and beverages. Artificial flavors have been known to cause an array of health problems such as chest pain, headaches, fatigue, nervous system depression, allergies, brain damage, seizures, nausea, dizziness and many more.

    Conclusion

    The Medifast Program offers some quality ingredients amidst the soy and fructose options that our editors utilize to raise red flags, but still packs in some nutrients that may be beneficial for healthy living. However, the detractor ingredients may be too much for many to swallow.
