Optavia: Eat 6 times a day to lose weight

Under the program you are sent 5 packets of fuel per day and then you make a meal on your own.

There’s a diet that is helping people lose weight fast. So in February we shot testimonials and a doctor’s opinion.

But then the pandemic hit. So did wearing masks. We decided to hold the story.
