Why Use Optifast?

The OPTIFAST Program

The optifast program is a patient-centric, medically supervised weight management program that closely monitiors 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 severly obese, those with a body mass index higher than 35.
