INTENSIVE PHASE (upto 12 Weeks)
3 OPTIFAST VLCD PRODUCTS
You also need to consume the below everyday to ensure a nutritionally balanced diet.
2 Ltr Water
1 tsp Vegetable Oil
2 Cups low Starch Vegetables
- How it works
This phase is designed for rapid, initial, effective weight loss.1 On it, you will consume three OPTIFAST VLCD products, two cups of low starch vegetables and one teaspoon of vegetable oil per day, adding up to less than 800 calories. You should also drink two litres of water daily.
- How long should I stay on this phase?
You can stay on this phase from anywhere up to 12 weeks, however this is variable and depends on your weight loss goals. If, at the end of it, you still have significant weight to lose, we recommend you follow the Transition Phase for a minimum of two weeks before repeating the Intensive phase again.
- Seek Advice
In some instances, if you still have more weight to lose at the end of the initial 12-week period, your healthcare professional may advise you to stay on the Intensive Phase for longer. It is very important that this should only be done under their instruction and supervision.
