Dr. Golikeri has also partnered with Optavia, a meal replacement program developed by dieticians, physicians, and scientists that incorporates healthy habits and clinically-proven plans to encourage long-term weight loss success.
The 5&1 plan offered by Optavia is an approach that allows your body to enter a gentle, yet effective fat burning state essential for weight loss. Patients will enjoy five smaller meals a day called “fuelings”, and one “Lean & Green” meal, which consists of cooked lean protein and veggies. The goal of this program is to break negative associations with food and sugar and get back to enjoying real whole foods. After several weeks into the program, you can customize your order based on the choices you love and what works best for your lifestyle. Each meal kit is mailed directly to the patient’s home, for added convenience and contactless delivery.
