3 Thrive by Medifast™ healthy fuelings
Thrive by Medifast™ healthy fuelings are designed to help you maintain your weight while providing the nutrition your body needs for a healthy life. They are portable and convenient, like the Medifast meal replacements, but they have new and exciting flavors and unique health benefits. High in protein and fiber, they’re sure keep you satisfied and fueled throughout the day.  

As the “3” in the 3-2-1 Plan, Thrive by Medifast™ healthy fuelings are meant to be enjoyed for three of your six daily meals. Take your pick; they’re interchangeable.

2 Lean & Green Plus Meals
The traditional Lean & Green Meals are based on 5 - 7 ounces of lean protein, 0 - 2 servings of healthy fats, and 3 servings of non-starchy vegetables. Lean & Green Plus Meals contain Options, and how many Options you have each day will depend on your daily calorie needs. 

1 Balanced Meal
Your Balanced Meal is made up of Options alone. The number of options you have to build this meal with will depend on your daily calorie needs.

A healthy, well-balanced meal includes a variety of foods in just the right amounts to nourish the body. Options include whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and healthy fats. For overall health and successful weight maintenance, we recommend choosing Options from these food groups most often.
