Our Promise To You

Medifast is clinically proven. Developed by a physician, it's the brand recommended by more than 20,000 doctors since 1980. You lose weight quickly while learning how to eat healthier. Medifast Meals are formulated with low-fat protein and fiber, and fortified with vitamins and nutrients, so you lose pounds and inches without losing out on essential nutrition. The low-glycemic index formula of Medifast Meals makes them perfect for everyone, even people with type 2 diabetes.

When you choose Medifast, you get a powerful product along with the support of an unusually committed company. We are passionate about offering hope to those who yearn to be healthy but haven't found the way. Obesity is both a physical and emotional problem, and any client who comes to us for help is always treated with dignity, care, and respect.

That passion and commitment also drives our dedication to creating superior products. We develop and manufacture most of our foods in our wholly owned manufacturing facility just steps from our corporate offices in Owings Mills, Maryland, and our clinical team continually strives to evolve our product lines, while maintaining the highest quality at the fairest price.

Imagine going to work every day knowing that you’re helping to change someone’s life for the better. How would that make you feel? If you answered… amazing, then a career at Medifast might be a perfect fit for you!

    Medifast encourages employees to live a healthy lifestyle themselves while promoting health through evidenced-based products and programs. The support that Medifast offers customers and clients through the different divisions helps to provide people with options of support through their weight management journey.


    The company is developing new processes and improvements, therefore restructures frequently, so jobs change as well. This constant change can make working challenging at times.
