Weight loss phases
We believe that losing weight should be easy and enjoyable. That’s why, here at Optislim – we have a simple 1-2-3 weight loss solution that takes the guess work out of weight loss.
RAPID WEIGHT LOSSThis is the most intensive phase of the program and suitable for those with a BMI greater than 30. Replace all three meals with any product from the VLCD range. Total calories should not exceed 800 calories per day. [expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"] Please consult a Healthcare Professional before beginning this phase. Replace three meals a day for 3 weeks and a maximum of 12 weeks under medical supervision. 2 cups of mainly green vegetables should be consumed in addition to the Optislim products to contribute to fibre intake. A minimum of 2 litres of water should be consumed to help flush waste from the fat burning process. Please consult with a Healthcare Professional before transitioning to the Steady Weight Loss phase to check if any medication levels need to be reduced due to an improvement of obesity related health conditions after weight loss.

STEADY WEIGHT LOSSThe steady weight loss phase is suitable for those who started on the Rapid Weight Loss Phase. It is also suitable for those with a BMI of 25 - 29.9. Two meals are replaced each day and a regular meal and snacks are incorporated. Total calories are between 1000 - 1800 calories per day.
