How would I speak about the four components of OPTAVIA with someone?


Based on the Health Assessment guidelines, designed collaboratively with field leadership and company support, here is the recommended approach to talking about the four components of OPTAVIA.

At OPTAVIA, we want you to live the healthiest life possible. Our programs are simple and easy to follow and, if followed correctly, lead to lifelong transformation. The secret to our successful track record is that along with a structured eating plan and support, we incorporate Healthy Habits in everything our clients do.

There are four components that will make up the foundation of your success. They are:

1. Your Coach

One-on-one personal support is what sets our program apart from other lifestyle programs available.  I’ll be there to guide you on this journey and help you develop healthy new habits and make healthy choices that lead to lifelong transformation. Study after study shows that support and guidance increase your chance for success in reaching your optimal weight*.  I’ll help keep you accountable and we’ll celebrate your successes along the way…the little ones and the big ones!

2. The Habits of Health System:

Developed by co-founder, Dr. Wayne Andersen, the Habits of Health system is an innovative lifestyle approach that contains everything you need to replace unhealthy habits with healthier ones. Adopting these habits contributes to your long-term success.

With the Habits of Health system, you’ll be learning new Healthy Habits in bite sized pieces…and these powerful habits support you in creating the healthy life you want.

3. Our OPTAVIA Community

In addition to your OPTAVIA Coach, you’ll have access to support from our OPTAVIA Community of like-minded people who are all focused on creating better health. From live and recorded video conferences and support calls, to Nutrition Support, to client focused support groups, to online support and more, our Community is an important aspect to your success.

4. Our OPTAVIA Fuelings

All OPTAVIA Fuelings are nutritionally interchangeable and five of them a day provide 100% of 24 vitamins and minerals along with probiotics to support digestive health.

With the Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan®, your body enters a gentle but efficient fat-burning state, which is essential for helping you lose weight.

You’ll enjoy six small meals a day spaced every 2 to 3 hours apart. Five of your meals are delicious, scientifically-designed OPTAVIA Fuelings and the sixth meal consists of a meal you prepare yourself that we call your “lean & green” meal. It’s a healthy amount of lean protein and 3 servings of non-starchy vegetables. You’ll also want to drink 64 oz. of water a day.

It’s a proven system and it’s easy to follow.
