The OPTIFAST™ Program at Duke Diet & Fitness Center


The Duke Diet & Fitness Center is pleased to offer OPTIFAST™ to its menu of program options. The OPTIFAST™ program is a medically supervised weight loss plan that replaces your current diet with meal replacement shakes, soups and bars to control calories and portion sizes. After a number of weeks, you are guided in re-introducing other foods gradually into your diet.

Like the renowned residential-style weight loss program that is the trademark of the DFC, OPTIFAST™ is an out-patient program that surrounds you with our expert team of healthcare professionals—physicians, registered dieticians, and health psychologists. Together we provide regular support and extensive patient education to ensure your success.
