OPTIFAST® Full Meal Replacement program
What is the OPTIFAST® full meal replacement program?
The OPTIFAST® full meal replacement program can provide you with a comprehensive and fast way to safely lose weight. This and all of our programs are medically supervised and include full meal replacement using shakes, bars, soups to provide you with a structured meal plan. This structure takes the guesswork out of what to eat. This concept, called stimulus narrowing, helps to decrease or eliminate your hunger which aids in your being able to stay on track. Your registered dietitian will work with you to individualize your program so that your nutritional needs are being met appropriately and so that you can achieve long-lasting results.
How can it benefit me?
The full meal replacement program allows most participants to lose an average of 2-7 pounds per week. Each week you’ll meet with one of our medical staff and have a body composition analysis completed. Our OPTIFAST® program lasts 16 weeks.
During this time, weight loss can be upwards of 50 pounds to over 100 pounds. You’ll have labs and medical supervision during your entire program so that your weight loss is safe and healthy.
What happens after the active phase?
After the active phase of the OPTIFAST® full meal replacement program our staff will assist you with incorporating whole foods back into your diet. Remember this program will be at your pace. Some participants need a little more time in the active phase due to amount of weight that he/she needs to lose or for other reasons. Your team at Body & Mind Medical Weight Loss Center will work closely with you to make this as smooth a transition as possible and to support you as you move forward in your long-term wellness goals.
