The OPTIFAST program
The OPTIFAST Program is a patient-centric, medically supervised weight management program that closely
monitors and assesses progress towards better health and emotional well-being. The program, which usually lasts
26 weeks, utilizes a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared “everyday” meals in conjunction with
comprehensive patient education and support, to help patients achieve long-term weight loss.
The OPTIFAST Program is designed for the severely obese, those with a body mass index higher than 35.
The OPTIFAST difference
The OPTIFAST Program succeeds because it treats the whole patient,
focusing on more than just weight. A comprehensive medical weight
loss program, OPTIFAST surrounds the patient with a team of healthcare
professionals, including physicians, registered dietitians and lifestyle
counselors to help patients achieve long-term weight loss. The goal is to
provide patients with expert resources to address, modify and support
lifestyle, behavior and diet decisions.
