Opt for a brighter future and long-term weight management
By Robert Clouse, MD, medical director for OPTIFAST weight management program
A new year has many taking the opportunity to change their health and wellness goals and opt to shed those extra pounds. Although the goals might be lofty and well thought out, it can be difficult to stay on track.
Two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese and many of them have significant health problems, like Type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea as a result. Weight loss and lifestyle modification are essential in treating these conditions. I recommend OPTIFAST.
OPTIFAST helps you to make important lifestyle changes. Along with professional medical supervision, it uses a complete meal replacement program that includes shakes, bars and soups to allow you to be successful and rebuild your dietary plan. In addition, you will receive lifestyle education, weekly support with a health coach, one year of weekly classes covering behavioral, nutrition and physical activity topics along with a quarterly InBody assessment for muscle and fat analysis.
Individuals who benefit the most from the OPTIFAST program are those who have significant weight to lose, those who have medical conditions associated with their weight or have struggled with weight loss in the past and need assistance to be successful.
There are a few things that come with the OPTIFAST program that you can’t get elsewhere. OPTIFAST offers complete nutrition with the meal replacement along with added fruits, vegetables and healthy fat that allows you to be satisfied. The health coaching, lifestyle education and class feedback allows you to get beyond those mental hurdles that can cause you to lose focus.
OPTIFAST is not just another diet plan. I recommend those with 20 or more pounds to lose, attend a free information seminar to learn more about this comprehensive weight management program, Monday, January 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Tamarac in Fremont.
