I am on HMR, which I think is similar to Opti. What is the difference between 800 and 70 on Opti? On HMR, 800 means 800 calories per day. I am currently on HMR 800. It's hard to believe that 70 could be 70 calories per day...
I'm glad to hear of your success. I found my way to HMR (started just 4 days ago) after a demotivating weight loss plateau. I lost 65 lbs with diet and exercise but from October to January gained 7 lbs back. I knew if I didn't take serious action, I'd gain it all back plus more.
I am hoping to lose another 35-50 lbs with HMR and then remain in their maintenance program for as long as I need to. One member has been in maintenance for 12 years. For most it's about 18 months I hear.
