Free online support and information available to start your journey towards a healthier future. To join, log on to www.optifast.com.au
OPTIFAST VLCD should be taken under the supervison of a healthcare professional.
It is indicated for persons with a BMI>30 or a BMI>27 with medical complications associated with obesity.

INDICATIONS
Total food replacement for the management of obesity.
OPTIFAST VLCD Program is intended for use as part of the management of people who are obese or overweight when there is associated secondary pathology e.g. non-insulin dependent diabetes, hypertension, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism corrected by replacement therapy, gynaecological disorders, hyperlipidaemia or where obesity is an impediment to surgery.

CONTRAINDICATIONS
Acute cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease, renal disease, hepatic disease, type 1 diabetes, porphyria or overt psychosis.
Use in pregnancy - Contraindicated.
Use in lactation - Contraindicated.
Use in children - Use of very low energy diets is not recommended in persons below 18 years.
Use in elderly - Use of very low energy diets is not recommended in persons above 65 years of age.

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.

OPTIFAST VLCD is for the dietary management of obesity and must be used under the supervision of a healthcare professional.  A program of regular light exercise enhances wellbeing, and therefore likelihood of success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Soup Happy to be on the optifast journey where I have lost 40kg in 13 weeks and being able to buy cheaper when on special I stock up. Great price makes it easier to diet without the loss occurring in my pocket as much !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good break from a shake Fast and simple to prepare almost anywhere, for the busy person who is always on the go. Opti fast is a great meal replacement, Soup is a good break from the regular shakes and good for a cold day. This is a diet that has been easy to stick to, Having been on the program for 4 weeks both my teenage son and i have lost 10 kg each.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! It is a diet soup, I don't know why someone would leave a bad review, obviously it is not going to taste like regular soup! I think it is really tasty and a great alternative to sweet shakes which can be hard to live on if you have a savoury preference. I wish you would make your products vegan though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs improvement Hard to mix without having lumps. Flavour needs enhancing, but I get away with it by adding a half teaspoon of Clive's Curry powder to it. Quite nice after that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good with pepper and croutons its okay but a bit plain better with seasoning
Date published: 2019-07-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not amazing, but not horrible either. I was prepared for the worst after reading reviews that it didn’t actually taste like tomato soup, but I was happily surprised that it in fact does! The only downside is that unless you prepare it unconventionally (like using a shaker), just adding water to the powder doesn’t dissolve it properly and there are chunks of mix stuck together in the soup. It’s a nice taste but doesn’t look very appetising when prepared to eat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Try Tomato soup this way…… I did the optifast diet for several weeks before having the gastric sleeve surgery. So to make the soup more palatable I steamed my favourite vegetables from the allowed list and added them to the soup to eat together, this seemed to help make both edible (even though I love vegetables it gets monotonous on a diet). I didn’t try with the chicken soup……but why not. Hope this can help someone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from bland but does the job Not the best tasting product in the range but it does what it is supposed to do
Date published: 2019-02-10
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont bother This soup if you could even call it that, tastes awful. Dont bother and dont waste your money. Stick to the bars or shakes.
Date published: 2021-09-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me! I bought the tomato soup because I loved the Chicken Soup and thought the Veg Soup was quite good. I am struggling to finish the Tomato Soup. So far I have liked most things in Optifast range, I will add Tomato Soup to the list with Vanilla shakes to not buy again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I love a tomato soup but I could not drink this... I’m trying to think of what this tastes like but am really struggling to find a comparison. Down the sink it went...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ugh! Very sorry to say this but it was absolutely awful. Had no real taste at all and was a complete waste of money.
