Sure, celebrities have made the OPTIFAST diet famous, but it is you we are thinking about as we offer this weight loss program. More than 1/3 American adults are considered clinically obese. These numbers are reason enough for physicians everywhere to look for answers. OPTIFAST is one such solution.
OPTIFAST is a medically supervised program that utilizes meal replacements as a weight loss tool. Once that weight is almost off, we will transition you to self-prepared meals in order to help you learn how to prepare and enjoy meals that are not only good for your taste buds, but also for your waistline.
We often tell our patients how much we love answering questions, and that is absoutely true. Here are a few questions frequently asked about OPTIFAST.
How do I know if OPTIFAST is right for me?
If you have a body mass index greater than 30, OPTIFAST is a great option. It is not the ONLY option, though. In fact, OPTIFAST is part of a comprehensive treatment program that will get you started, keep you encouraged, and see you through your weight loss journey.
How do I get started?
Once we have collected your health history and conducted a thorough physical exam we will have a better idea of how the program will work for you. Teaching you the details of the program takes approximately one hour, but we are always here for additional support.
Is OPTIFAST safe?
Medically monitored weight loss programs have been proven to be safe and effective. We will closely monitor you every step of the way in order to make sure that you are at your best.
Where do I purchase OPTIFAST products?
We will sell them to you. The reason you do not find OPTIFAST products on store shelves is because it takes a trained specialist to monitor you and make sure you are handling the program well.
How long does the program last?
About 26 weeks.
How much weight can I expect to lose?
The typical patient experiences a loss of more than 50 pounds in 18-24 weeks.
Does that weight come back?
Yes, if you go right back to your old dietary and exercise habits, you will regain weight. The same is true of any diet program. We find that patients who use weight maintenance programs have a good chance of keeping the weight off. In fact, follow up studies of OPTIFAST patients five years after the program show that 50% have kept enough weight off to improve their physical health, and really, isn’t that what it is all about?
This program consists of three distinct phases: active weight loss, transition to self-prepared meals, and long-term weight management. Each phase brings its own sense of excitement and allows you to learn more about how to get and stay healthy.
Is it easy? No, not especially. Is it effective? Absolutely? Are you alone? No, never — we will always be here to help.
