Our Scientifically Proven Fuelings and Plans

OPTAVIA works because it's simple and easy to follow. The proven Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® jumpstarts your optimal weight journey. Five of your daily meals are OPTAVIA Fuelings. You'll choose from more than 60 delicious, convenient, nutritionally interchangeable, scientifically-designed Fuelings. Your body will enter a gentle, but efficient fat-burning state, essential for losing weight.

Each Fueling contains high-quality protein which helps retain lean muscle mass, and a patented probiotic, GanedenBC30®, which helps support digestive health. In addition to five Fuelings per day eaten every 2 to 3 hours, you'll learn another healthy habit, how to make a lean and green meal for you and your family. When you know what optimal nutrition looks like, healthy eating becomes second nature.
