I thought this programme would be horrible.
The vanilla shakes are light, not too sweet and are fantastic to have for breakfast.
The chocolate bars taste almost identical to the old space food sticks which I loved and miss.
The lemon dessert, OMG. I will be using these long after the weight is gone. Refreshing, light lemony taste feels like you're being naughty by eating it.
Wish I had of tried these long ago.

Made me sick like having allergic reaction and wiped me out for whole day.
Product has changed and makes me sick like I’m having an allergic reaction within 30 minutes and wipes me out for whole day. Took me a while to work out the cause. As soon I stopped using them I was fine. Started again and was sick again. I used Optifast 4 years ago and lost 16kgs and didn’t suffer any side effects. But this time it has made me violently ill. Tried to continue for 6 months. Blaming other things for how I was feeling. I’m no longer sick now I’ve stopped using them. I’m on an Optifast support page and others have experienced the ...same thing. I would recommend trying it because it really does work. But if it makes you sick stop immediately. I’ve sold the boxes I had bought and lost a lot of money to get rid of them. But getting something is better than nothing.

I decided to do this together to remove my "covid weight". I tried my own diet which, to no one's surprise, failed miserably, and this meant something more was needed. One friend of mine was put on an Optifast regime before his bariatric surgery. It'd been recommended by his surgeon and, combined with other professional advice, I decided to try it... Optifast, that is, not the bariatric surgery.
I bought a mixed pack to try and enjoyed chocolate the most. I tried other flavours in the pack, and later bought still others such as chai. The end re...

They are so nice can’t wait to try the different flavours

Started 3 weeks ago on intensive level ive lost 11 kgs so far with no exercise. My goal is to lose another 60kgs.
Banana coffee shakes chocolate lemon deserts chicken soup capuccino bars are very nice and filling. Optifast works different on many people. I can only tell you my results. Cannot compare myself to others.
Best I’ve tried
I’ve tried tony Ferguson, man shake, celebrity slim and optifast is by far the tastiest and good value for money. Coffee is my favourite flavour. I use 300mil of cold water.
In 7days lost 6.2kgs
It works a treat, I tried mocha, coffee and chocolate not really a fan of them 3, my favourite will have to be vanilla an strawberry. The texture is like a yoghurt. I’ve tried other replacements supplements and in the first two weeks I was sick off it. Going into 7 weeks optifast lost 16.7kgs. Having one for breakfast and one for lunch and just a small portion of dinner and drinking 4ltrs of water a day and trying to exercise every day or every second day. I’ve recommended optifast for my friends daughter, in 8days she lost 6kgs she loves it. Optifast has really changed my life can’t wait to carry on and shred another 29kg off it’s given me so much energy and I stopped smoking when I first went on to having optifast. Bring on summer time
Healthy way to lose weight
Only tried Vanilla shakes and the optifast bars and drank lots of water... you will drink water easily as your body flushes out the fat! Results are immediate. Love it.
This is my second time on Optifast.
First time i was going under the knife and the doctor's told me to go on Optifast to help shrink my liver for surgery and get used of the liquid diet because i was having bariatric surgery. After losing a lot of weight and my gastric band bursting, i started gaining weight again. The bloody doctors will not fix it!
I LOST 17 kg in 6 weeks before my surgery.
I turned to Optifast again in the last few weeks. The hardest part is the first week, you want to eat everything and crave everything. You have to be p...
I have been using Optifast for 3 weeks, i have lost 7 of the 10kgs I am aiming for. Shakes are delicious with extra water and ice and i have a berry bar and cup of veggies for lunch. Another cup of veggies and lemon creme dessert for dinner, all really good. Only products I don't like are the soups. I work out twice per week for around 30 mins then do a big 10km walk each Sunday. This diet works if you stick to it!
- Mild side effects
Great Results for fast weight Loss and works if you stick to it.
I decided to try Optifast as I wanted to drop weight quickly and found it was the easiest diet to stick to after trying many diets in the past as it removes the temptation of over eating and those cravings for dessert after having a meal which I struggled with for so long. After gaining 10 kilos in 1 year due to a change in career, I struggled to get back to my original size as I was not sticking to diets long enough to lose the amount of weight I wanted to lose. I am not severely overweight, however am at the higher end of my BMI for my height..., at 68 kgs my goal weight was 60 kgs. I am now on my second week on this diet, having 3 shakes a day and nothing else with 1 cheat day (normally a Sunday). The shakes are bearable, I alternate between the chocolate and the vanilla flavor, followed by 1 litre of water in the morning and directly after each shake. I have not had any issues with bowel movements and have been going everyday as I normally use a fibre supplement in my 1st shake of the day. In 1 week I have lost 4 kilos, I am half way there with another 4 kilos to go. Good luck all.
Have tried strawberry and vanilla and chocolate bars on the recommendation of my dietician. Have 2 shakes, one bar and 2 cups vegetables daily to lose liver fat before surgery. Have been on it for 5 days and lost 3 kgs. very impressed as I have tried every diet on the planet with disappointing results. The flavours are bearable and I expected to be hungry and craving but have non of those. Very happy with results far. Would recommend this to any one desperate to lose weight . I loved the sweat taste...stopped me craving. Have chronic fatigue, so found this perfect fuss free, energising meal replacement.

Worst mistake l have ever made
I tried Optifast as it had such good reviews. On the positive l tried a multi pack to try different flavours and they tasted very nice. I was doing just one shake a day for lunch as that was what l could afford. Not only did l not lose any weight this week but l actually added over a kilo. Very unhappy now feeling really low. Have apt with my GP today
I used Optifast 12 months ago to shed some weight, this plus 1 healthy meal a day and plenty of exercise I managed to lose 17kgs in 4 months. The taste is great, the best of any VLCD I have tried (and I have tried quite a few), a box is not cheap though I wouldn't say its expensive for what it is. Very happy with this product.
Omg first week 6kg off...this product is awesome ...U need the will power to do it...
Strawberry and banana...yes the flavours awesome...very outstanding ..try it out...it's a very fast way of losing all your body fat...and U need to be well focus U can pull through
I purchased one if the multi flavour packs prior to commencing my pre weightloss surgery diet with doubt in my own willpower to be able to stick with a diet that was as stricken as this for the full duration of 3 weeks without fail. I found myself pleasantly surprised with how quickly after beginning the diet I started feeling full after having only three quarters of the shake. I thought I would become bored easily with the flavours in the range but I did not,
And that is saying something, I get bored with food very easily. These shakes, in combination with the the soups and deserts were recommended by my surgeon and allowed me to loose 9kg prior to my surgery. If you have the willpower to stick with it, do, it is well worth it.
Taste is ordinary
I have tried the Chai becuase it was on special. I wouldn't by it again because of the taste, it was not a real authentic Chai flavour to me. I had to make myself finish it. The chicken soup was strange too. I trust the Optifast brand. My father use to yse it fot weight management

Questions & Answers
Is it safe for type 1 dibectic's to take ,
If I'm not hungry, shall I skip the optifast meal?
I was advised not to by optifast.as you need 3 shakes a day. Being on optifast you are already on the lowest calorie diet. Drink 2 litres of water also. Most important have your 2 cups of veggies all that plays a role in your weigh loss.
Do you drink Optifast all in one go? Or slowly?
