Q. Why is alcohol not recommended?

Alcohol is not recommended during the Intensive Level of the OPTIFAST VLCD Program as it can put extra strain on your liver and kidneys. Alcohol also has a diuretic effect as well as contains extra calories which will slow down your weight loss progress. As part of your OPTIFAST VLCD Program, choose low energy/calorie drinks instead - such as soda water with a spritz of lemon or lime.
