Historically known as a liquid-only diet, OPTIFAST Programs have been offering the OPTIFAST 800(R) Chocolate Bar for more than a year, giving people a savory, non-liquid meal replacement option. With the overwhelming success of the Chocolate Bar, the OPTIFAST Division of Nestle HealthCare Nutrition introduces two new bar flavors to help further improve program compliance and provide an even greater number of people with the tools to succeed. Each OPTIFAST 800 Bar is a nutritionally complete meal replacement, packed with protein and fiber, without trans fat.

"The OPTIFAST Program does a tremendous job of providing people with the right amount of medical monitoring, behavior modification, health and wellness training, and meal replacement options," says Dr. Jamy Ard, medical adviser for Nestle HealthCare Nutrition. "It's not easy to lose weight, but programs like OPTIFAST help people take the right steps to change their relationship with food, lose weight, keep it off and get their lives back."
