The Duke Lifestyle and Weight Management Center (formerly Duke Diet & Fitness Center) is proud to offer a Duke employee discount for their newly redesigned OPTIFAST® Program.
Duke employees will receive $50 off the 12-week education fee (originally $250) and $100 off the 24- week education fee (originally $500). Must show valid Duke ID.
OPTIFAST® is a highly successful, multi-week (12 or 24 weeks) program that provides nutritionally complete soups, bars, and shakes, and includes:
- Weekly provider visits, which can be in-person or virtual.
- Weekly virtual group support sessions led by the Duke Lifestyle & Weight Management Center's nutrition, behavioral health, fitness, and medical experts.
During weekly visits, your provider will monitor your health and weight loss progress. Over time, your doctor and dietitian will guide you to slowly reintroduce food into your diet as you reach your weight goal.
Currently, parts of this program are not covered by insurance, but consultations with your doctor or dietitian may be.
