OPTIFAST Lite Program 

Looking for a jump start but a full or mini-program isn't the right choice for you? OPTIFAST Lite could be what you are looking for. Participants consume three OPTIFAST shakes plus a regular meal for a total of 1100 calories. Meal selections include lean protein, vegetables, fruit, and low-fat dairy products. Our Registered Dieticians will work with you to choose foods to eat for your regular meal and help customize your plan.
