One of the biggest struggles patients has when trying to achieve a healthy weight is making food choices. This is often a barrier to begin your healthy weight journey. OPTIFAST simplifies this process. By being a medical grade meal replacement with the appropriate amount of macro and micronutrients it can meet your daily requirements and still having you feel full. The simplicity of OPTIFAST is one of its strengths. You know to take a shake for breakfast, lunch and dinner and split one for a snack.
In addition, the shakes are easy to prepare and there are many recipes that PWL has that makes it tastier and adds variety to the shakes. Furthermore, the shakes are easy to transport and prepare and are ideal for a fast lunch and healthy snack choice.
The OPTIFAST shakes are very tasty and come in a chocolate and vanilla flavour. Some patients add ice to make it into a shake or add low calories sweetener. In addition, while taking OPTIFAST patients can have certain broths, vegetable and coffee with sweetener. These details will be provided once enrolled in the program.
