Optavia Diet

What is Optavia Diet?

The team behind Medifast has released a new line of products under the OPTAVIA brand, with the identical macronutrient profile as its original Medifast products. The company states that by working with its coaches and following a diet including OPTAVIA products, you’ll achieve “lifelong transformation, one healthy habit at a time.”

More specifically, if you stick to the brand’s products called “Fuelings” and supplement them with one meat, veggie and healthy fat entrée each day, you’ll stay full and nourished. You also won’t lose loads of muscle because you’ll be eating lots of protein, fiber and key nutrients while consuming very few calories – typically 800 to 1,000 for adults. On average, clients lose about 12 pounds in 12 weeks on the Optimal Weight 5&1 Plan.

Some carb curbing also goes on behind the scenes. Because carbs are your main energy source, restricting them sends the body to the best available alternative fuel: fat. OPTAVIA is said to curb carbs just enough – you’ll eat 80 to 100 grams a day – to start burning fat.

Pros & Cons

  • Nutritionally sound
  • No counting carbs, points or calories
  • Powdered, just-add-water food
  • Might be tough to stick with

How does Optavia Diet work?

Most dieters follow the Optimal Weight 5&1 Plan, which includes five Fuelings a day. You can choose from among more than 60 options including shakes, bars, soups, biscuits and pudding, all of which include high-quality protein and a probiotic the brand says supports digestive health. Your sixth daily meal, which you can have at any time, is built around cooked lean protein and three servings of nonstarchy vegetables.

While on the diet, you’ll work with Optavia coaches and can become part of a community to help encourage your success. Once you reach your goal weight, transitioning off the plan is theoretically easier since your old habits are replaced by healthier ones. The company offers a specific line of products via its Optimal Health 3&3 Plan designed for weight maintenance.

For people looking for a slightly more flexible and higher-calorie diet, OPTAVIA also offers the Optimal Weight 4&2&1 Plan, which includes four Fuelings, two “lean and green” meals and one healthy snack, such as a serving of fruit or a baked potato.

The company also markets specific plans for people with diabetes, nursing moms, people with gout, seniors and teens.
