Q. Is OPTIFAST VLCD available in other countries

OPTIFAST VLCD is currently sold in Australia, New Zealand, China, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Sir Lanka, Philippines, Singapore and South Africa, however not all countries stock all the variants and flavours that are offered here in Australia.

In the US, Canada, Spain, Germany, Austria, UK, Italy, Switzerland and Brazil, the name of the product is OPTIFAST 800 not OPTIFAST VLCD, and as well as the name being different, the recipe and taste of the product is different. OPTIFAST 800 is taken in five serves per day rather than three. It is also sold as part of a holistic weight management program in clinics and hospitals and is generally not available to buy over the counter in pharmacies.

If travelling overseas whilst on the OPTIFAST VLCD Program, it may be easier to take your OPTIFAST VLCD sachets/bars with you. This will ensure you get the flavours and variants that you like. Just ensure that you declare them through customs.
