What is CBT and how can it help my weight loss?
Very shiny and pretty. Your post gives me a great help. I drink two shakes a day and a Lean Cuisine for dinner. The Nestlé Health Science company makes this brand. When I typed in the keywords "Optifast" and "Recipe" weeks ago, there were simple concoctions like various-flavored "floats" using diet soda, frappuccino with instant coffee , and chicken curry soup yep- chicken soup plus pinch of curry. I sincerely feel that statement is misleading.

I wont be buying this again unless it changes. Write a review on ProductReview. Want an easy way to lose weight or save time? Love the products, especially the banana flavoured shake. I am getting good results 5 kg in 3 weeks. However, I wished the chicken soup had some flavour, namely chicken as it is very bland. I have tried the vanilla and chocolate. I find them very sweet and the sweetness over rides the chocolate or vanilla flavour. I tried optifast many years ago and thought they were better back then, less sweet more flavour?

Maybe I am wrong? Not only did I lose weight I also lost my hair as it fell out in so badly. Need to lose weight? Optifast is a very low calorie diet that puts your body into ketosis, making you lose fat fast. I have tried the shakes, the desserts, the bars and one of the soups and all are delicious. You can add ice to the shakes to make them a bit more creamy and filling. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a high protein, low carb delicious way of losing weight.

I tried Optislim and Optifast bars. Not for the weight loss purpose but more as an occasional snack as they are large in size and filling. They both work on the same premise which is help customers lose weight.

Depending on your budget , if you want better taste and overall quality of the bars then Optifast wins. If you ignore the critics, it works!! I love the chocolate and the caramel shakes, the chocolate bars and I can sometimes eat the desserts.

The Optifast diet does work if you are capable of ignoring all the negative people say about it e. Use the Optifast Facebook groups to help answer any questions and you'll be fine!

If you go in with a glass half empty, you'll fail; if you go in prepared to give it a fair shot, you'll achieve your goals. Worked for me when other diets didn't. I stuck to the Chocolate and liked the taste, even looked forward to them. I stayed on the diet for 8 weeks with almost no cheating. I started at lbs and a BMI of I ended at and a BMI of At my 8 week Doctor visit the Doc told me I had reached the goals he had in mind and that I could start phase two of the program.

I felt like I had really accomplished something big. I would recommend this diet. It is hard but worth it. Good luck to you all. On my 3rd day, Hungar not tooo bad so hopefully this is as good as everyone says Just need to know if your allowed a little skim milk in cup of tea twice a day. The chicken soup was so revolting.

The chocolate shake is nice. A bit sweet but still good. I've tried all favours and I like tomato soup favours most. These products work for me because I have tried other similar brand and they all make my throat feeling uncomfortable after having their product for a few days.

Coffee is my favourite flavour from the range but it tastes awful lately. Bring back the old chocolate bars. Fantastic weight loss products that have a huge range of flavours but the old chocolate bars was the best! I still can't complain what they still have to offer and since using this I have lost heaps.

Banana, strawberry very nice. Coffee awful but out of date, chia not very good, soup needs some taste added to it to make palatable. Good results once you have found the flavours you like.

I have tried the shakes, the bars and the soup. Only the soup is remotely palatable. The other products contain fructose and Sucralose. Regular exercise will help burn off the excess calories, and I have more to gain by losing. I imagine the key for keeping it off will be discipline, as it is now. I have faith in myself, I appreciate the support inside and outside the group, and I am thankful for the opportunity to live with vitality once again.

I just finished my 6th week on Optifast and I have lost 39 pounds so far. I was up until 3 am last night trying to perfect a cookie recipe using the Optifast shake mix. My final product I find quite delicious--hope you like it: Place egg whites in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Beat on high speed with an electric mixer or using a whisk until frothy. Add cream of tartar, splenda, and pumpkin spice.

Beat on high speed until slightly stiff peaks form. Mix in Optifast shake powder. Spray pam over cookie sheet. Spoon onto cookie sheet using teaspoon and bake for 15 minutes. Makes 1 dozen cookies. Egg whites add 30 calories, 1 carbohydrate, and 6 grams protein to the Optifast mix. Thank you so much nbcteacher, I added your fun recipe to the main page. And Congratulations on your 39 pound loss.

I myself have fallen off the wagon but will get back on soon. Regarding the Optifast Cookies, I found that the Chocolate mix makes the softest, cake-like cookies, whereas the Strawberry mix makes more of a thin, wafer-crisp cookie. I haven't tried it with the Vanilla, but my favorite is the Chocolate.

Hey I am on optifast and live in Australia. I have these nice soup recipes made with the allowed veggies. Add brocolli really filling- supresses cravings goodluck. My wife is on her second month of Optifast. She is living on shakes alone for weeks ahead yet,but as her supporting person and Husband, I have to tell you to keep it up, do not surrender to people who want to keep you where they want you.

Find someone to support you and have faith in yourself, you can do it. I would like to add that while I was on the optifast program here in So. California at Kaiser, we were not allowed any food at all.
