Your meals are pre-planned for you by a team of nutrition experts who have compiled a nutritionally sound meal into a low calorie meal substitute. Following your OPTIFAST program, you can still take advantage of these meal substitutes, but you’ll also want to start incorporating more traditional foods into your diet.

Tony: 68 Pounds Lost

In early 2013 I came to the realization that I had ignored my health for way too long. At 56 years old I was living a sedentary life and at five-foot- eight-inches tall, and weighing 233 pounds, I was obviously obese… the mirror told me that every day. But it was a blood test that quantified how serious the situation was.


Jonathan: 81 Pounds Lost *

Jonathan Weight Loss Success

Where do I begin? I’ve always been a big guy, from middle school straight through college, and into these past several years after graduation. In high school it was ‘ok’ to be big and overweight because I played football, and as a lineman it was just something I considered normal. Once I graduated high school, however, I didn’t keep up with my eating habits and exercise balance and over my college years I managed to gain about 70 pounds. I topped out at one point around 310 pounds. This was something that I just couldn’t accept, nor could I maintain it with my career aspirations of being a police officer. January 25th of this year I decided to change my life for the better, and this time I really meant it.
