Maryka du Plessis
Best tasting shake I ever had!

For the first time in a long time I am excited and looking forward to my weight loss journey. I have been trying for years to lose the weight but it kept coming back. Yesterday, I have received my shakes firstly very impressed with the packaging and super excited about my extra's that I got with my order. But the best part was the the taste of the chocolate shake. Never, ever out of all the products that I have tried before have I tasted a healthy shake that's so good, nice and thick, filling, taste like a chocolate milkshake and it's so easy and conveniently packed. I love the sachets, it saves time and is effortless. I'm in love and super excited and looking forward to great results!

Good Afternoon Maryka

Vivienne Lisher

Unlike most meal replacement shakes, I'm not hungry for hours after consuming an OptiFast meal replacement shake or bar which are both tasty. I also really like that I can control my calorie intake really well.

Fantastic Shakes

I've just starting using Optifast shakes for the past 2 weeks and cannot believe how incredibly tasty they are. I have tried the chocolate and vanilla. Absolutely awesome, can't wait to try the rest.

Good Evening Alison
