Denver Optifast ProgramsPosted: Sep 16 in Optifast, Weight Management Strategies by Dr. Lazarus
Have you been struggling with your weight, wanting a simple solution designed to take off a lot of weight quickly?
For over 30 years, Clinical Nutrition Center has been helping Denver residents shed the pounds by utilizing a combination of medical weight loss medications, supervision, and medical weight loss programs. We launched our Denver Optifast program last year to bring more tools to individuals desiring a simple weight loss program.
Optifast foods are delicious, nutritionally complete meal replacements designed to replace all of your daily food. This makes it easy to put you on an individualized calorie count designed just for you. While in clinical studies, the average Optifast weight loss patient lost 52 pounds in 22 weeks, we have many individuals who have lost substantially more than this. In fact, I had the pleasure of meeting with one of our most successful patients last week who has lost 185 pounds on an Optifast program, and is now 18 months in to her weight loss program, successfully maintaining this loss.
Optifast foods include:
Optifast 800 series: shakes and soups with 160 calories, 14 gm protein, 20 gm carbohydrate
Optifast HP series: shakes with 200 calories, 26 gm protein, 10 gm carbohydrate
Bars: similar in nutritional labeling as the Optifast 800
In addition to the foods, Optifast Programs are used in conjunction with the Optifast Lifestyle Education Series (LES). This is a set of modules designed to help you learn the behavioral changes for life-long weight loss success. The Optifast LES series is not only available to Optifast Patients at CNC, but to all of our medical weight loss patients. Even on our other medically-supervised programs, individuals will commonly utilize these modules.
So, if you are looking for a simple weight loss approach designed to take the pounds off fast, consider Optifast.
