How Do I Make A Optifast Shake?

  1. All you need is a shaker or blender. Mix with 200ml of cold water.
  2. Stir the sachet into the water using your blender of shaker until it is dissolved.
  3. If you want to dilute the taste or make a larger shake all you need to do is add more water to the mixture.
  4. It is best to use colder water for a cool refreshing taste.
The Optifast diet works by reducing your calorie intake below 800 calories a day - this means your body has to draw on your own stored fats instead of getting calories from food. There are four phases in the Optifast program - your health professional can give you advice on which one is best for your body. During the start of the program, replace all meals with Optifast products so that calorie intake can be clearly monitored. As you start to lose weight you then re-introduce normal meals.

The Intensive Phase is suitable for:

  • People with a Body Mass Index or BMI > 30
  • a BMI > 27 + risk factors
  • poor mobility, or need weight reduction prior to surgery.

  • 2 cups of low starch vegetables
  • 2 litres of water
