In 1974, a group of physicians at the former Mt. Sinai Hospital in Cleveland concluded that healthy, effective and long-term weight loss required more than just a low-calorie diet. Their research led to the development of OPTIFAST®, the first weight-management program to combine lifestyle education and medical monitoring with a meal replacement plan.
If you’re ready to lose weight for better health and keep it off, the Mercy Weight Management OPTIFAST Clinic in Canton, Ohio – under the medical direction of Joseph G. Vrabel, DO – offers you:
- A calorie-controlled meal replacement plan
- A baseline screening and medical evaluation
- Weekly weigh-ins and educational group meetings
- Six-week membership to Mercy Health & Fitness Center
Documented results in more than 80 studies nationwide revealed participants experience a 52 pound weight loss, 15 percent average decrease in cholesterol, 29 percent average decrease in blood glucose and 10 percent average decrease in blood pressure.
During Mercy’s OPTIFAST program, you will develop the skills you need to maintain long-term weight loss. Studies show that after two years 50 percent of participants maintained more than half their weight loss and 75 percent maintained medically significant weight loss.
To learn more about the program and sample OPTIFAST products, attend a free informational meeting. Appointments are required.
