Anyone done optifast?

My mom is going to do this so she can lose weight to get her knee replaced.
Has anyone else used the optifast program?

I have. The hospital I went to for weight loss put me on it. The first two weeks are hunger He**, but after that it’s ok. But when you start real food you gain the weight right back

Ugh, that doesn’t sound good.
How long till you eat real food?

For me it was 6 months

How much did the optifast shakes cost or were they covered by insurance?

I think they were like $12/box and each box had seven shakes. I needed 5 or 6 shakes a day. I forget which. They’re probably more expensive now.

I just looked it up. In the US, optifast is usually about $150/week

Holy cow, no way she can afford that.
Thanks for the info!
