Why the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan?

Our clinically proven Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® jump-starts your optimal weight journey. It’s fast, hassle-free, simple to follow, and based on the healthy habit of eating six small meals per day — one every two to three hours. With the support of your independent OPTAVIA Coach and our Community, you’ll start making progress right away.


Five of your daily meals are OPTAVIA Fuelings. Choose from dozens of delicious, convenient, nutritionally interchangeable, scientifically-designed Fuelings including shakes, soups, bars, hot beverages, hearty choices, biscuits, sticks, pudding, and brownies. Each Fueling has a nearly identical nutritional profile designed by our team of food scientists and refined by our Registered Dietitians and nutrition team.


Each OPTAVIA Fueling is scientifically formulated with the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fat which helps promote a gentle, but efficient fat-burning state. Each Fueling contains high-quality, complete protein which helps retain lean muscle mass, and contains BC30™ probiotic cultures, which help support digestive health as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.


In addition to your five Fuelings, you learn another healthy habit, how to make a Lean & Green meal for you and your family. You will begin to learn what optimal nutrition looks like and soon healthy eating will become second nature.


Our clinically proven plans and scientifically designed products were developed by physicians, dietitians, and scientists, have impacted 2 million lives, and have been recommended by thousands of healthcare providers.
