Canton, Ohio: Losing weight is a popular New Year’s Resolution. Nearly two thirds of adults in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Mercy Weight Management offers OPTIFAST, a medically safe, weight-loss program that can help you lose weight and keep it off. OPTIFAST combines a calorie-controlled full meal replacement diet with behavior modification training, exercise program, nutritional education, support groups and medical monitoring. Documented results in more than 80 studies nationwide reveal participants experience, on average, a 52 pound weight loss, 15 percent decrease in cholesterol, 29 percent decrease in blood glucose, and 10 percent decrease in blood pressure.
Mercy Weight Management is hosting an OPTIFAST Open House from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 20 at Mercy Medical Center’s OPTIFAST classroom.
