The Centegra Weight-Loss Institute now offers a new, medically supervised weight-loss program called OPTIFAST beginning Aug. 1. This 26-week program uses a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared meals, comprehensive patient education and support groups.
The program is designed for people who are severely overweight or obese. It is also recommended for people who need to lose weight before weight-loss surgery.
OPTIFAST provides clients access to physicians, registered dietitians and counselors so they can achieve and sustain long-term weight loss. It is another way that Centegra Health System is addressing the healthcare needs of the community.
For more information on OPTIFAST or to sign up for an intake session, call 877-CENTEGRA (236-8347).
