Frequently Asked Questions About OPTIFAST® Meal Replacement Supplements

Here are patient questions about OPTIFAST®:

What is OPTIFAST®, and how does it work?

Offered through The Weight and Wellness Institute, the only licensed provider in Rhode Island, OPTIFAST® is a medically-guided meal replacement program. Our carefully crafted plans include shakes, bars, and soups that replace snacks and meals. In addition to meal replacement products, we offer our patients lifestyle, medical, and nutritional support.

What makes OPTIFAST® different from over-the-counter meal replacements?

OPTIFAST® is different because it provides complete and balanced nutrition. Nestle Health Services developed the products under medical guidance. The OPTIFAST® supplements provide an important nutritional source for several of our weight-loss programs.

Is your program focused only on supplements, or do you have other services?

Weight loss is about more than calories in and out. Our program includes nutritional counseling, exercise consultations, support groups, and behavioral care provided by experienced professionals.

How can counseling help with weight loss?

The Weight and Wellness Institute is a program of South County Psychiatry. South County Psychiatry is a respected behavioral health practice offering comprehensive patient services and cutting-edge treatments.

Counseling can help to start a conversation about weight in a nonjudgmental way. Patients who have had trouble losing weight on their own may be anxious about approaching the topic with a medical professional. When the patient feels that the counselor is listening respectfully, they may be more open to making behavioral changes in their diet and exercise habits that could lead to a healthier future.

Changing to a healthy lifestyle and losing weight require mental and physical work. Counseling can reinforce these changes and help the patient to see them positively, increasing their chance of success.

Can a psychologist help with weight loss?

A behavioral psychologist is uniquely qualified to help with weight loss. These professionals analyze patterns in our behaviors and discover their causes. Behavioral psychology helps patients understand the factors that influence weight gain, including changing the accessibility of unhealthy foods. Psychologists help their patients understand the changes they need to make to lose weight and provide an important source of support.
