Are we allowed sucralose on optifast?

So I have been fast tracked for surgery and only have to do just over 2 weeks of optifast. Initially I had asked to do 4 weeks as I wanted to lose as much weight as possible. But since my BMI is just under 50 they said I should be fine with less than 3

What are some must have items and some "nice to have" items.

I have stocked up on premier protein premade shakes, and have tested them to make sure I like them. I also have small plates and bowls to help with portion control. What are some othe

Hi guys, so I had my sleep test done about 5 weeks ago. It was horrendous. It was hot, no ambiant noise, I could hear every door open and the techs keyboard, and the monitor/leads fell off every time I flinched. I think the longest I slept was for 1 h
