Optifast Medical Weight Loss

OPTIFAST® is committed to helping you manage your weight by making a healthy lifestyle a habit for life.

The Optifast Program

The OPTIFAST Program is a medically supervised weight management program that closely monitors and assesses progress towards better health and emotional well-being. The program, which usually lasts 12 weeks, utilizes a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared ‘everyday’ meals, in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support.

How the OPTIFAST Program Succeeds

  • Meal replacement diet
    Narrowing your food choices helps you work towards weight loss and management by controlling the amount and types of food you eat.
  • Medical supervision
    Utilizes the expertise of a registered dietitian and a physician to help you lose weight safely.
  • Lifestyle education
    To help you achieve and sustain better health through nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes.
  • Counseling
    Individual and group counseling by experts who understand your challenges.
  • Ongoing personalized support
    Included both during and after weight loss to help you achieve and maintain success.

Dr. Bellanger is a great choice for a surgeon. He is approachable and friendly and very concerned with his patient’s comfort.
