Optifast® medical weight management program
HSN’s medical weight management program is a 26 week non-surgical (medically supervised) program designed to help participants achieve a healthier lifestyle and lose weight by changing behaviours. The program uses a 900 calorie meal replacement (Optifast®) for 12 weeks with a 5 week transition period back to food. Group classes offer support and provide education on healthy living, proper eating, and physical activity. Participants are followed by a bariatric team that consists of a physician, dietitian, social worker, medical secretaries, and a physiotherapist.
