If your new diet contains a very different amount of fibre compared to what you are used to, it is possible to experience some digestive changes such as a change in bowel habit, bloating, or flatulence. As you adjust to your new plan this should settle down. If you experience persistent, severe or worrying symptoms, we advise you to seek advice from your GP.
We recommend speaking with a healthcare professional if you are thinking about taking additional supplements. When following a partial meal replacement plan, making sure that your food-based meals are well balanced and contain plenty of fruit or vegetables can help you get the vitamins and minerals you need.
We would encourage you to drink at least two litres or 8 glasses of calorie-free fluids per day.
some people may choose to start on the Active Level
of the OPTIFAST Partial Meal Replacement plan. These levels might be more
suitable for people who require less calorie restriction to start with.
Alternatively, if it is easier to start with one meal replacement and slowly
build up then you may choose to start on the Active Level
and move gradually to Intense
levels and move back to Active level once your weight loss has been achieved.
Your calorie-controlled or low-calorie meal should be around 350 calories. Aim for 1 serve or ¼ of your plate to be protein (100g meat or chicken, 130g white flesh fish, 2 eggs or 150g tofu), 1 serve or ¼ or your plate to be grains (2 slices of bread, 1 cup cooked pasta, ¾ cup of rice or 1 medium potato) and fill half the plate with low starch vegetables or salad. You can also include 1 tbsp of a sauce or dressing. This plate concept will help to keep your meal under 350 calories.Alternatively, check out the calorie- controlled recipes in the blog of the website. Each recipe indicates how many calories per serving.
