Introducing…OPTIFAST Protein Plus

OPTIFAST Protein Plus Shakes

We’re excited to announce the launch of OPTIFAST Protein Plus Shakes, a tasty new addition to our range of meal replacement products!

These high-protein, thick-style shakes are available in both Vanilla and Chocolate flavours, and join our OPTIFAST Shakes, Soups, Desserts and Bars as a new option to help support you on your weight loss journey.

Why Protein is Essential on a Weight Loss Plan

When you’re following a weight loss plan, it’s important to consume adequate amounts of protein, as it is essential to maintain muscle mass.

Muscle mass is vital for building and maintaining strength and supporting fitness and agility. It’s also important for mobility by helping to maintain bone and joint health.

OPTIFAST Shakes vs OPTIFAST Protein Plus: What’s the Difference?

1. Higher Protein Content

OPTIFAST Protein Plus Shakes are higher in protein than our standard Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate and Coffee OPTIFAST Shakes with 28g per serving in the Protein Plus Shakes versus 20g of protein in our standard shakes.

2. Lower Lactose Levels

OPTIFAST Protein Plus Shakes also contain less lactose – 0.63g per serving compared to 9.35g in our regular OPTIFAST Shakes – making them a more suitable source of protein for people who are lactose intolerant or have difficulty digesting higher amounts of lactose.

3. Contain Less Sugar

The OPTIFAST Protein Plus Shakes contain less sugar than the standard OPTIFAST Shakes – 1.9g per serving versus 10.1g per serving.

4. Nutritionally Complete

All of our OPTIFAST Shakes, both Protein Plus and regular shakes, are nutritionally complete when used as part of a total diet replacement, with 26 essential vitamins and minerals in every serving to help keep your body healthy throughout your weight loss journey.

How to Use OPTIFAST Protein Plus Shakes on Your Weight Loss Journey

Depending on your protein requirements, you may be advised to use one or two Protein Plus products per day when you’re following an OPTIFAST total diet replacement plan. These should be consumed in place of other meal replacement products, not in addition to them.

The Protein Plus Shakes can be used during the first three-week intense phase of a total diet replacement plan, as protein helps manage hunger.

These high-protein shakes can also be used when you are following an Intermittent Fasting or Maintenance Plan, as a quick and easy option to replace your conventional breakfast.
