Clinical Weight Management Programs: The Importance of Obtaining Optifast Through Your Physician

When it comes to weight loss programs and products, you have many choices. However, you want to choose an option that is not only effective but also medically safe and clinically proven to help you take and keep the weight off. Look no further than OPTIFAST®.

OPTIFAST® is a comprehensive weight management program combining lifestyle education and medical monitoring with a meal replacement diet. To get more detailed information on the OPTIFAST® Program, our patients attend a consultation that takes about one hour. In conjunction with one of our physicians, they can decide if the program is right for them and if they want to move forward.

Your Safety and Well-Being

Weight loss programs, especially those involving a radical change in diet or a goal of losing a lot of weight, should always be monitored by a physician. While losing weight is always optimal for health and well-being, losing it too fast or the wrong way can be detrimental to your health. You should only obtain Optifast through a licensed physician to ensure a safe weight loss journey.

Correct Use of the Program

When you get Optifast through an experienced physician, you can be assured they are guiding you to use the system correctly and as effectively as possible for you. This can lead to more successful weight loss and higher rates of keeping the weight off in the long run.

Clinical studies reveal that medically monitored weight management programs are safe, effective, and help people to address and change behaviors to encourage long-term weight management.

Frequently Asked Questions About Optifast

Will I be Hungry While on the Optifast Program?

Hunger and impulsive desires to eat are real concerns when considering Optifast. Controlling hunger is a primary objective of the program, and our staff can suggest various strategies to accomplish this goal. For most Optifast participants, hunger sensations fade within only a few days to two weeks after beginning the program. One reason the Optifast program is beneficial is that it can help you control hunger and impulsive eating in the long run.

Is the Optifast Program Right for Emotional Eaters?

One of the biggest challenges Americans face today is eating for comfort and to relieve anxiety or other negative feelings. Optifast can help you change these emotional eating behaviors by not only focusing on eliminating the bad habits you have but also by creating new positive habits in your life. The program can help you with the long-term success of changing behaviors you may have learned at a very young age.
