OPTIFAST® Full Meal Replacement
Fast, Effective Weight Loss at Scottsdale Weight Loss Center
OPTIFAST Full Meal Replacement is one of the fastest ways to lose weight safely. As the name suggests, this proven weight loss formula replaces your current diet with meal replacement shakes, soups and bars to control calories and portion sizes.
Full Meal Replacement allows you to lose 2 to 7* pounds per week until you’ve reached your weight loss goals. As part of our medical weight loss programs lasting 18 to 20 weeks, weight loss of 50 or more pounds can be achieved**. Although this is one of the fastest ways to lose weight, you’ll be carefully monitored to ensure your body is getting adequate nutrition and maintaining optimum health.
Proven Weight Loss That Lasts
Initially, Full Meal Replacement provides fast, effective weight loss by giving you a break from constant food choices. Your need for traditional food will be eliminated by a technique called stimulus-narrowing, creating a lack of hunger that makes the program very easy to follow.
Once you’ve achieved your initial weight loss success, the Scottsdale Weight Loss doctors and staff will help you transition back to regular foods, teaching you how to safely eat without regaining weight. As with all our proven weight loss programs, Full Meal Replacement one part of a series of key elements designed to help you maintain long-term results.
