Meal Replacements vs ADA Diet – A Study Published in "The Diabetes Educator"

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health studied the efficacy of meal replacements for people with diabetes by comparing Medifast to basic nutrition recommendations provided by the American Diabetes Association. Results of the study show that people with Type II Diabetes, using Medifast Plus for Diabetics, lost twice as much weight as those following the ADA’s recommended food guidelines and were twice as likely to stick with the diet. Other improvements in health included:

* 19% decrease in insulin
* 12% decrease in fasting triglycerides
* 10% decrease in blood glucose
* 27% increase in quality of life
* 9% increase in HDL
* 7.5% decrease in body fat
* 8% decrease in blood pressure
