OPTIFAST program

The Duke Diet & Fitness Center is pleased to offer Duke Employees 10% off the OPTIFAST program. Must show valid Duke ID. OPTIFAST Weight Loss Program OPTIFAST is a medically supervised, meal-replacement weight-loss program that can be easily incorporated into your daily life. Holistic in its approach, it includes medical, nutritional and behavioral guidance and monitoring. It is recommended for those with a BMI of 30 or greater, and is often used for rapid weight loss prior to bariatric surgery, for those suffering from severe obesity that hampers activity or for those who can't dedicate the time to a residential program. Because participation in the OPTIFAST Program spans several weeks and requires the attention of our Duke Diet and Fitness Center team, it is only offered on an outpatient basis to individuals able to travel to our Center once a week. The OPTIFAST program is not billable to insurance; however, some patients have been able to use Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) or Health Savings Accounts (HSA) for the program.
