Date:7/31/2008

OWINGS MILLS, Md., July 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medifast, Inc. (NYSE: MED) today announced that a recent study published in 'The Journal of Eating and Weight Disorders' shows that individuals taking appetite suppressant medications can expect double the weight loss when they combine their drug therapy with a medical protocol using Medifast Meal Replacement Supplements.

The 52-week study, conducted by researchers at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine and Baylor College of Medicine shows that participants who consistently used Medifast Meal Replacements along with pharmacotherapy lost an average of 14% of their body weight in one year. This amount of weight loss is approximately double what is seen in university studies of obesity medications alone over the same time frame. In the study, more than 80% of the participants lost at least 5% of their body weight, which is more than double that found for other structured commercial weight loss programs.

"The results of studies featuring Medifast Meal Replacements are superior to those typically observed for other obesity interventions including weight loss medications and other commercial weight loss plans," says Lisa M. Davis, Ph.D., PA-C, C.N.S., L.D.N., Director of Research and Development, Medifast, Inc. "This suggests that comprehensive weight control programs featuring Medifast provide a unique solution for weight control."

While the Company does not advocate the use of weight loss drugs, Medifast does recognize that diet pills are part of the weight loss landscape now and are likely to remain so in the future. Medifast is a proven weight control program in and of itself, and has now been shown to double the results of comprehensive weight co
