Optifast has asked us to remove their products from our online store. They would like their products to be supervised by a medical professional in a medical office setting. We will continue to carry it in our medical clinics as a part of our weight management program.
(Hi, this is Dr. Powell. I have been practicing medical weight management for over 17 years and one of the most vital concepts to avoid while you are losing weight is "Dieter's Fatigue". This is when you eat or drink the same thing over and over and over; eventually you get tired of it. If you push yourself through Dieter's Fatigue and continue to try and eat or drink the same item you will get so sick of it you will never want to even look at it..ever again. That is called Food Aversion. That is why I have created Carbessentials.net. This has been a labor of love for me to find high quality products that can be interchanged between companies so that you can avoid dieter's fatigue. I am your "purchasing agent" and have found hundreds of products that can be used in your weight loss struggle. Below is a very brief listing of other company's products that can be substituted for Optifast.)
CarbEssentials.net has many products that can be used in your nutritional plan in place of Optifast. These products are an excellent source of protein, antioxidant vitamins A,C,& E, and also an excellent source of vitamin B complex and calcium as well as a great source of dietary fiber. These products offer a complete balanced nutrition to complement your weight management and exercise program.
