OPTIFAST Program Company Profile

10:30 EDT 24th July 2017 | BioPortfolio

The OPTIFAST Program utilizes a stimuli-narrowing dietary intervention in combination with behavioral therapy techniques, nutrition and exercise education along with medical supervision. Stimuli narrowing limits the variety and quantity of available foods and flavors to decrease appetite. Together, the main components of the OPTIFAST Program--stimuli narrowing and behavioral therapy-have helped more than a million people lose weight during the 35 years the OPTIFAST Program has been available. More important, over 50 percent of those who complete the OPTIFAST Program keep off enough weight to improve their long term health. (Wadden TA, Frey DL. A multicenter evaluation of proprietary weight loss program for the treatment of marked obesity: A five-year follow up. Int J Eat Disord 1997;22:203-212.)
