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.

Super! I look forward to speaking with you.--Hellen Beard, Program Director

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.

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!
