Optifast is a medically supervised plan composed of fortified liquid replacements.
This is a eighteen week program. The first twelve weeks will be meal replacement options followed by integrating healthy meals back into your lifestyle.
It consists of liquid shakes and supplements, with some whole foods.
It is designed for obese patients that are 50 pounds or more over weight, or have a body mass index of 30 or more.
The statistics show over 600 people have sustained a weight loss of 10% of their body weight.
They have maintained this for five years or longer.
It addresses weight related health problems. A preliminary medical examination is performed to determine health status.
The plan is customized to the needs of each person based on health status and weight loss goals. Medical monitoring of your progress and health throughout the entire program.
Counseling is provided by profressionals and includes individual and group therapy.
The nutritional products supplied cut calories, but the daily regimen allows for 100 percent of the recommended intake for vitamins and minerals.
The Optifast Shakes are delicious and very convenient.
Promotes fitness at a level you can handle to start with and promotes healthy eating changes.
The only "con" I can present is the cost of the program. However, if you are obese and have poor health, you cannot put a price on becoming healthy.
This isn't a fad diet, it's a medically supervised plan for obesity.
The statistics have shown "proven success" for obesity with the Optifast Plan.
If you are obese and have health related problems, I would recommend you speaking with one of their medical professionals.
I would also recommend you consult with your own personal doctor or healthcare provider before starting any weight loss program.
