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 whao 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 Fantastic results so far I was a little nervous about trying this program as I have never done anything like this before. A lot of reviewers also mentioned they didn’t like the taste of some of the flavours. I actually love all of them! I am in the second week of the 12 week intense VLCD program and have lost 6kg so far. I find that the shakes suppress my hunger and fill me up. Very happy and very impressed! You won’t find them cheaper anywhere else either. Trust me - I’ve looked. But the price is worth it in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They taste Great For a person who didn't like the shakes. I have completely changed my mind. They are great and really works. I have tried many things but this works because you can still eat with these shakes but balanced out properly
