At Dr. Briones Medical Weight Loss Center, we’re pleased to offer OPTIFAST as one of our medical weight loss plans in Mt. Kisco and the surrounding Westchester County area. This supervised weight loss plan has a track record of success and is specially designed for patients with a BMI over 35. Could OPTIFAST really help you lose weight? Here is what you need to know.
Patients on the OPTIFAST program lose over 50 pounds on average, which leads to an 11% average decrease in blood pressure and a 14% average decrease in cholesterol. After two years, approximately 50% of patients maintain at least 5% of their initial weight loss. OPTIFAST helps patient achieve these weight loss goals through a full meal replacement that slowly transitions to self-prepared meals over the course of 26 weeks. Combined with physician supervision and peer support, patients who choose OPTIFAST are able to achieve weight loss that has been unattainable on other programs. Only a weight loss doctor can determine if OPTIFAST is right for you, so schedule a consultation for more information.
