OPTITRIM Partial Meal Replacement Program
The OPTITRIM partial meal replacement program is available for those who feel their lifestyle is such that a liquid meal replacement diet may not be practical. This program combines the use of the OPTIFAST product with a limited amount of food. Typically, one food meal daily is used in addition to the OPTIFAST meal replacement for the other two meals. The food may be self-prepared, or portion-controlled entrees may be used. Guidelines are provided to help you make your food choices. You will receive the same medical monitoring, support, and education as those on the OPTIFAST program
A person may choose this option for several reasons. Those whose job involves significant travel and dining out may find this option more practical. Others may not travel with their work but may have food challenges when their job requires entertaining clients. Still others simply feel more comfortable including some food in their diet plan on a daily basis. Whatever your reason, we will work with you to pair you with the diet option most comfortable for you.
It is important to know that the success of this option requires careful attention to food choices and portion size. Our registered dietitians will help familiarize you with the types of foods and the portion control necessary to keep total calorie intake low enough to see weight loss results of 2-3 pounds per week. With having to watch calories and portions of that one meal carefully, when you reach your goal you will have already practiced what is necessary for long term weight management.
