Weighed in at 191 this morning after a week of no loss... yay!
Optifast 800 has been a lot more tolerable for me than Optifast 70. I love the bars so, so much.
Surprisingly, I think the Optifast 70 shakes taste better than the Optifast 800 shakes. I figured it would be the opposite!
I did a little research tonight and discovered that the Atkins Advantage shakes and bars have nearly identical nutritional values to Optifast 800 - the only difference being most Atkins Advantage products have 9 grams of fat compared to 3 grams in Optifast 800, and the Atkins Advantage products have less carbs than Optifast 800. In order to save some cash, I might substitute 1 or 2 Optifast products a day with an Atkins Advantage shake or bar.
The Atkins Advantage shakes/bars seem to have less potassium than Optifast 800, so I picked up some potassium tablets at the store to make up for that.
I guess I'll try this for a week or so and see if I keep losing...
