How Long Does Optifast Take?

Small changes made over time help many people lose weight . Others need a more structured approach, such as OPTIFAST. The OPTIFAST program is only available from healthcare providers, such as Dr. Maria Briones’ clinic near Mt. Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County. Your weight loss doctor will thoroughly evaluate your health and customize your program to meet your needs. Most patients are on the program for 26 weeks, although this is variable from person to person. Individual results will also vary, although the average weight loss is about 50 pounds.

Before you get started losing weight with OPTIFAST, you’ll have a consultation at the clinic, and you may also attend a new patient orientation. Then, you’ll order your recommended OPTIFAST products through the weight loss clinic, and choose your start date. There are three stages. The first—active weight loss—lasts about 12 weeks. The remainder of the 26-week program consists of the transitional stage and the long-term weight management phase.
