Forget the dull, boring weight loss programs of the past. If you need something that will work fast and effectively Optislim claims that have the perfect option for you with their VLCD weight loss program. Maker of Optislim, an Australian based company, says they have the answer to all your overweight and obesity problems with their delicious and nutritious VLCD weight loss and meal replacement options. Let’s take a closer look and see what Optislim really has to offer.
Optislim offer three different products for their VLCD program. VLCD stands for Very Low Calorie Diet, and on these programs, users are consuming between 800 and 1300 calories per day. The three products offered on this program are their three hearty soups, the MAX tablet and three favorite weight loss shakes.
The meal replacement shakes come in the flavors of chocolate, vanilla and espresso coffee. Each of these products claims to be able to provide you with 25 essential daily vitamins and minerals to help keep your body working in tip top shape while one of these programs.
The VLCD program has three phases. Phase one requires replacing all three meals with a VLCD Meal Replacement Product. Phase two steps down to two meal replacements per day, and phase three requires one. Each of these phases should be complimented with healthy water intake, a progressive daily exercise program, and healthy well balanced snacks and meals.
We had a hard time finding benefits of this product. Of course, as with any product that offers between 800-1300 calories per day you will lose a significant amount of weight. However, the question of maintenance and health lingers in the air. There are a number of positive customer testimonials on their website as well.
So yes, you will lose weight, however, there have been no clinical or scientific studies performed and the 25 healthy nutrients and minerals cannot be found anywhere. In addition, there is no fiber included in any of the VLCD product, so, you will have to purchase an extra fiber supplement in order to really be getting all the said benefits of this program.
We would not recommend this product. There are less expensive products on the market that can prove their benefits both clinically and scientifically. Also, seeing as this product is only produced and sold in Australia and the UK it is very hard to come by.
