I found Medifast’s cancelation process easy but annoying – because I had to phone them. Nowadays, I really resent having to call somewhere and speak to an actual human. I much prefer a one-click, automated process to do anything! While there were things that I appreciated about Medifast (you can see what I mean in my full-length Medifast review, I found this to be somewhat of a nuisance.
By the way - if you’d like a less-rigid weight loss plan that’s low-calorie vegan meal kit, I can’t recommend Purple Carrot’s low-calorie plan enough (more on them below!). Sun Basket’s calorie-controlled plan is yet another diet-friendly option.
Back to canceling your Medifast account. You’ll need to call its customer service on 1-800-209-0878 and explain you’d like to cancel your account. This goes for both Medifast Advantage members and non-members. Once they've canceled your account, you should receive a confirmation email to your registered email address.
The good news for anyone looking to keep their weight in check is that there are so many meal delivery services out there to help you. Trying one and discovering it isn’t what you were looking for doesn’t mean you should give up. Quite the opposite, it’s time to look into some of the other options on the market.
Check out these three top Medifast alternatives.
If you’re looking for a more flexible diet plan, and are interested in putting a plant-based diet to the test, Purple Carrot is the place to start. Its fun and easy-to-follow recipes are a fail-safe way of learning how to make delicious vegan cuisine.
Not only that, but Purple Carrot also offers low-carb recipes, as well as high-protein options – so you can choose your preferred approach to weight loss and healthy eating.
The two- and four-person plans provide tasty vegan snack options, too. You can read more about that in my Purple Carrot review.
Sun Basket’s driving belief is that eating well and feeling good starts with the ingredients you use.
Whether you want to spend some time in the kitchen cooking your meals, or need something fast and easy, Sun Basket’s Lean & Clean plan provides you with recipes and meals each under 600 calories. They’re also customizable, so you can leave out the foods you don’t want.

If you’re looking for a Medifast-style approach of an all-day diet plan designed specifically for weight loss, check out Diet-to-Go.

For a detailed breakdown of Diet-to-Go’s offerings, read this full-length review.
Medifast isn’t for everyone. But then again, neither is any meal delivery service - especially when it comes to something as personal as losing weight.
My advice: keep trying. Thanks to the absolute explosion in the diet meal delivery service industry, you’re very likely to find one that works for your needs, tastes, and lifestyle.
