U.S. News & World Report recently evaluated 32 of the most popular diets to identify and rank the best eating plans available. The U.S. News panel of diet and nutrition experts ranked Take Shape For Life parent company Medifast No. 11 among “Best Commercial Diet Plans” and No. 25 on its overall “Best Diets” list.
Take Shape For Life incorporates Medifast Meals through the 5 & 1 Plan®, which supplements five 100-calorie Medifast products with one “lean-and-green” entrée per day. The program also features a personal Health Coach and the Habits of Health System, based upon the work of Dr. Wayne S. Anderson, Medical Director and Co-Founder of Take Shape For Life.
Medifast was also recently named a “Future 50” Baltimore Blue Chip Award winner by SmartCEO magazine. The weight-loss brand was one of five large Blue Chip companies recognized for their leadership and success in the regional economy.
“As we look ahead over the next five years, we plan to expand to new markets domestically and globally, capitalize on our multi-channel approach, and introduce new products and programs to help more people in new places reach their weight and health goals,” said Medifast Chairman and CEO Mike MacDonald.
