Warnings

PRECAUTIONS
Individuals with recent myocardial infarction should be referred to a cardiologist to determine suitability for modified fasting. Individuals receiving medication for diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidaemia or
those on lithium therapy may require a reduction in dose or withdrawal of treatment whilst undergoing modified fasting. Such individuals should be monitored carefully in the first weeks of an OPTIFAST® VLCD™ Program. Individuals with a history of gout, porphyria, or hepatic, renal or gall bladder
disease should also be monitored carefully by their healthcare professional. Individuals on lithium therapy require more frequent monitoring of blood lithium levels. Alcohol should not be consumed when using the OPTIFAST® VLCD™ Program

MONITORING
At the commencement of the program, individuals should be checked for normal renal and hepatic function and thereafter regular checks for weight, blood pressure and urinalysis by their doctor.

ADVERSE REACTIONS
Initial transient effects have been observed: sensitivity to cold, dry skin, temporary rash, temporary hair loss, postural hypotension, fatigue, diarrhoea, constipation, muscle cramps, halitosis, irritability, menstrual disturbances. These are generally insufficient in magnitude or duration to warrant cessation of the program but check with your GP.
IN some rare cases, numbness and the appearance of previously unsuspected gallstones have been reported. Rapid weight loss occasionally leads to higher serum uric acid levels and might precipitate an acute attack of gout in a predisposed individual. This may be ameliorated by ensuring adequate fluid intake and including one teaspoon of vegetable oil with the 2 cups of additional vegetables consumed daily. Always check any adverse symptoms with a doctor. Although the OPTIFAST® VLCD™ Program contains adequate electrolytes for the needs of most individuals, some individuals may become hyponatraemic or hypokalaemic, especially if they are receiving diuretic therapy. In such
circumstances, electrolyte supplements may be required as directed by your healthcare professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strawberry shake I have been using these on and off for the past 5 years. I brought caramel the last time and it took me a while to get through them. So I decided to buy the strawberry this time it seems to be the pick of the flavours. Not too strong or over powering. Very pleasant taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and great results! These are delicious. It’s so hard finding a high protein product that doesn’t taste like protein powder. These taste like a McD’s milkshake without the guilt! And they work. Down 2kg by the end of week 1. (2 shakes, 1 optifast bar and a salad/meat dinner) each day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty & it WORKS! I have been using Optifast for a number of years now. I started using it again before summer to drop a few kilos. This really works, it fills you up & it tastes great. I do recommend this for anyone who wants to lose a few kilos. Plenty of flavors to choose from, including banana & the best thing is, is if you don't want to use the protein powder shakes, there are bars to choose from. My favorite is the cappuccino bar. YUM!
