I have been an OptiFast user for a few years and love the strawberry shake and berry crunch bars - they atually taste pretty good. Yesterday, I gave into the temptation of lower price and bought two big packs of the OptiSlim strawberry shakes. BAD MOVE - it tastes awful and looks and smells like the artificial, powdery, chemical rubbish that it is.
However, I also bought a single sachet of the OptiSlim Life banana shake - and it was much better.
Before my lap band surgery, I used OptiFast to crash diet and it worked so well for two weeks that the doctor actually advised me not to have the surgery. I also then used it as twice a day for a few months, with a normal meal in between and minor exercise, and I managed to maintain my weight pretty well.
(Does anyone know why the OptiFast strawberry shakes do not come in the box of 40 like the chocolate, or why the smaller packs have 8, instead of ten?)
