- Eat two opti fast products a day (instead of meals) and have one low calorie meal (up to 350 calories) along with 2 cups of vegetables or fruit or one serve of dairy and two litres of water Phase Three: Maintenance Phase
- During this phase you have just one optifast product and the rests are normal healthy low calorie options. You have it with two cups of low starch veggies, two serves of fruit, one serve of dairy, and two litres of water a day. Phase Four: Stabilisation Phase
