What Is the OPTIFAST® Program?

The OPTIFAST® program is a scientifically based program designed for those who suffer from excessive weight and weight-related medical conditions. The program will walk you through all the research-supported steps so that you lose weight and build healthy habits that you can maintain for the rest of your life. 

Step One

The first step is the intensive weight loss plan, and this continues for the first 12 weeks. We will meet with you to discuss your needs and your health situation. Then, we’ll plan monitoring and counseling sessions for the future. Finally, we’ll provide nutritious OPTIFAST® meal replacements for you.

Step Two

Otherwise known as the transitional phase, this phase is for 5 weeks. We will help you introduce self-prepared foods back into your diet, and we’ll also provide education and coaching to help you alter your lifestyle in addition to your diet. 

Step Three

The final phase is the most important one, which is why it is a minimum of 3 months and long-term if you choose. The maintenance phase includes ongoing support sessions with us. We’ll help you manage and achieve your weight loss and lifestyle goals, and we may also provide the occasional meal replacement recommendations. Medical care for Weight Management based on the latest practice guidelines will also be provided.

Through each step of the process, Elm Medicine professionals will be by your side to ensure your body stays healthy. We will help you stay motivated and happy as you progress through the OPTIFAST® program.
