The Optifast program succeeds by combining the expertise of physicians, dietitians, nurses, and behavioral counselors with a high-quality, calorie-controlled, nutritional formula in a program that treats the whole person, not just the weight. We have two program options: The 6 month Core Program is the one we recommend for most of our patients. Evidence suggests that the Core Program results in a:
• 52 lb average weight loss
• 15% average decrease in cholesterol
• 10% average decrease in blood pressure
• 29% average decrease in blood glucose
In studies, over 50% of patients maintained their weight loss after 5 years!
For some patient’s who are returning on the program or for some reason need a shorter period of time – we offer a 3 month option.
