- OPTIFAST® New You Winner

A hard working husband and stepfather, Jeff had been surrounded by the constant temptations of food and poor eating habits for years. In January of 2016 when his on-the-go lifestyle started to show on the scale, Jeff and his wife Lisa decided it was time for a change and joined the OPTIFAST® Program together. As a result of Jeff's active participation in the program, he had lost approximately 95 pounds and had helped support Lisa as she lost approximately 54 pounds while actively participating in the program.*

Following Jeff's personal success with the OPTIFAST® Program, Jeff strives to maintain his goal of living a better lifestyle by seeking out better food options. As a result of his weight loss, Jeff experienced improvements in his blood pressure and cholesterol levels.** The couple hopes to participate in a marathon one day.


*The success stories of OPTIFAST® New You Contest winners are representative of those individuals only and do not represent all OPTIFAST® patients. OPTIFAST® patients who actively participate in a 26-week program typically lose approximately 30 lbs. and maintained approximately a 25-lb. weight loss at 1 year. In a separate study, OPTIFAST® patients maintained an average weight loss of approximately 19 lbs. after 2 years and 15 lbs. after 3 years from starting the program.

** Maintaining a healthy weight is associated with reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease. These benefits are not limited or attributed to weight loss with the OPTIFAST® Program specifically. No case is typical.
