This diet works without a doubt as long as you can stick thru it. Would never recommend it and totally wasted my money. I don't have a lot of weight to lose only about 15 pounds , but have just not been able to motivate myself to reduce my food intake enough to get rid of it. Our nutrient dense meal plans are formulated to help you lose weight by creating lifelong habits. Unfortunately once I became comfortable being able to fit in my own clothes again I stopped the program. When Weight Watchers works for us, when our other healthy lifestyle choices work for us, wonderful! It was amazing to me that some of the people are even dietitians and health professionals!

The uniquely yours is the top rated plan with more convenient features and also priced high among the three.

But in Medifast, you will have to cook one lean and green meal daily. Nutrisystem diet plans can be followed by anyone whereas for following Medifast you have to consult a physician as they are designed to make a calorie deficit in your body.
Therefore, certain dieters might feel inconvenient to follow Medifast plans. Nutrisystem encourages exercising on a daily basis for about 30 minutes by providing workout DVDs for easy following. My sister and her husband were both on nutrisystem any weight they lost they gained right back after they stopped eating the food.
I was thinking about it but I think its to expensive and I have tried the food and I think it's yucky.. Good luck with whatever you choose.
