Episode 165: The Science Behind Optavia: Too Good To Be True?

Share this:

Hey Rebels.

Optavia has grown in popularity over the past decade, and it makes sense. If you don’t know what Optavia is, count yourself lucky. With their flashy headlines stating, “lose weight fast and keep it off”, claiming it is backed by research, it is enticing.

I peeled back the curtain on Optavia to see what the hype was all about. Not only is it too good to be true…but it’s so much worse than you’d think.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing my findings.

  • What is the Optavia diet protocol?
  • What does their science actually say?
  • The dangers of very low-calorie diets
  • First hand accounts from past Optavia members… including the harmful health effects they’ve experienced as a result…

What you take from this episode will allow you to spot the red flags in plain sight of other diet programs all around us.
