OPTIFAST Meal Replacement System Nutrition InformationPosted: July 30, 2011 in Obesity Medicine by Craig Primack MD FACP
OPTIFAST is a meal replacement system specially formulated for individuals who need to lose weight in excess of 50 pounds. OPTIFAST is available in licensed medical weight loss clinics in Scottsdale and Phoenix. Since OPTIFAST is a total meal replacement diet, it’s designed for users to rely on the prepackaged drinks, shakes, soups, and bars for their day-in day-out nutritional needs.
The OPTIFAST Ready-to-Drink shakes are one of the core products of this total meal replacement diet. With 160 calories and 14 grams of protein, the eight ounce drink shakes contain 20 grams of carbohydrates, 220 mg of sodium, and 470 grams of potassium. The OPTIFAST HP powder shakes are especially designed for patients before and after weight loss surgery. The powder contains no fiber and less than one gram of lactose, making it easier for the digestive system to handle.
The OPTIFAST 800 bars are packed with flavors and nutrients. Available in peanut butter chocolate, berry with yogurt coating, and chocolate, each bar contains 160 to 170 calories. With 14 grams of protein and 20 to 30 percent of recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals, the OPTIFAST 800 bars are part of a healthy weight loss diet.
Designed for your medical weight loss journey, OPTIFAST soups have 19 to 20 carbohydrates per servings along with up to 700 mg of potassium. Enjoy tomato or creamy chicken flavor in these 160-170 calorie dry soup mixes. These soups even contain 14 grams of protein. Also specifically formulated for bariatric patients, the OPTISOURCE high protein drink is designed to help medical weight loss surgery patients meet their nutritional and protein needs.
