Chicago, IL (PressExposure) August 11, 2009 -- Because many people lose weight very quickly Medi Fast, there is a question that seems to pop up a bit - How safe is Medi Fast? Let me just say upfront that Medi Fast is very safe, as long as you follow the rules and have no health problems that would be contraindicated for use Medi Fast. I will some of these issues in this article.
If you are in generally good health and not pregnant, then a diet with Medi Fast just fine. Medi Fast is more than 20 years and it is designed by doctors and nutritionists.

Don't skip meals
Medi Fast is carefully designed to be followed as outlined in their planning material. This calls for five Medi Fast meals per day and 1 Lean & Green meal, a meal together yourself from fresh vegetables and a good source of protein such as poultry, fish or beef. There are meat-free options to choose from as well.
since Medi Fast is very low calorie content (about 1000 per day), it is important that you do not skip any meals. It is very easy to combine two Medi Fast meals together as you had to skip a meal, but you want to make sure you get all those meals eaten, so you have enough calories and the proper amount of nutrients.
It is also important to eat your lean & green meal, as this is the one meal per day that you get fresh food, and lots of fiber to keep you regular. The protein in this meal is very important. When dieting, it's always important to consume enough protein, you can resort to the use of muscle rather than fat for its energy source. So do not skip meals!
