    With all of the new knowledge of how bad soy products are for our health, has Medifast considered an alternative protein for the shakes?

      Hi Tia, As you can imagine, Medifast prides itself on providing clinically proven programs using medically formulated products and are confident in our usage of high quality, extremely healthy ingredients. Of course, Medifast stands behind our products and our 30+ years of providing a safe and healthy option for individuals looking to lose weight and achieve optimal health. Our products all undergo rigorous standards to comply with our strict nutritional requirements, taste profile objectives, and many other areas (gluten-free, kosher, etc.) in which we can assist customers. We also do have a Scientific Advisory Board consisting of many experts in the medical and weight loss fields. As we are a science-based company, it is definitely research we are watching and evaluating with our medical team and Scientific Advisory Board members as it relates to all ingredients used in our products. Medifast formulates all of its food based on sound research, which we believe does not show negative benefits of eating soy. With that being said, we recognize that we have clients who may have soy allergies or choose not to eat this product. For those clients we have a number of meals that use whey protein instead.
