I was not graduating at 240lbs, so when I made up my mind to use a liquid diet, I was serious & I wanted the best. I researched and found OPTIFAST. I am told that I was one of the biggest losers on the Program. At 160 lbs I feel like a real Winner!

Combo! (compare to HCG) worked for me. I ate real food, I cooked. I went out. I lost weight. I thought I would need extra help for a birthday party, so I had appetite suppressants to keep my resolve and I lost 25 lbs in 35 days.

I worked with Dr. Ellis on Program B (Customize Option). The instructions were to follow a low carb diet and to get more exercise. With each follow-up visit, the instructions became more specific to my lifestle and the kind of food I liked, best. I lost 10 pounds the first month and 30 more over the summer. I never felt better! I continue to see him once a month for maintenance.
