Too be fair

I have lost a lot of weight on the plan and everything I tried in the past for me has never worked. So I am generally happy. However getting the products I like has been hard or almost impossible. They need to step it up or Iam going to have to find another plan. I have no choice. And a lot of people feel sick for a few days when they are detoxing from the normal junk they have been eating. It generally goes away after 3 or 4 days.

Today is august 24 but no money has been sent to me. T

Theft from my bank account by optavia.

Optavia stole $538 from My bank account July 16. I have called ever few days and told by someone in Asia or Columbia that this will be notated in the computer. I am posting this on every social media site with the name optavia associated every day all day until I receive my money back. I received an email July 29 that I would have my money in 2 days. It is now aug 24. I will not stop posting until I receive my money. This is theft and wire fraud!

User's recommendation: Optavia steals money from bank accounts! Can’t reach senior leadership.

Refund

The coaches do not tell you that your fuelings will automatically be sent and that they hold the money from your bank account from the date they ordered it until it ships (up to 14 days). If you never get the order. They take another week or so to process a refund, then your bank had to do their part after the Company releases it. Again another 5 days hold. This is not optimal for most people.

User's recommendation: I was able to lose weight but at the risk of them controlling my banking funds. Not recommended.

I noticed that the main ingredients in Optavia is soy. It seems completely genetically modified and soy is not healthy for the hormones nor reproductive system.

Bad Service, Shipped Canceled Orders, Can't Delete Account

This company is a scam. The have very questionable accounting practices, so be careful. They claim that charge you but then credit you back and then charge you again. Impossible to keep track of the accounting. Then they say it take two-three weeks to get product. When I canceled an order two weeks before they shipped it they said they were not sure if they could cancel in time to stop it being shipped in two weeks! a lie. Then they charged for the product. When i wanted to return it they said I had to pay for shipping. Just use wonderslim - better product and cheaper. the than uuu

User's recommendation: Use a Different Company.

Delivery of Product

I started the program 4/10/21 and as of today 5/27/21 I have loss 38 lbs. I believe in the science of their program because it works, but now that I'm Hooked I cannot get product, Sad thing is people that can get product are selling in eBay at a huge markup over retail and sadly I have had to order from ebay to STAY on program.

I've found the Optavia program is an excellent program for weight loss, but with its increasing popularity has come major supply chain issues that have been getting worse and worse. Selections in the Essentials 5&1 program are often unavailable. Some have not been...

I agree with everything said here. No improvement in supply chain issues as of 7/20/21. In fact, the available products continue to diminish.

I am happy with the program, but very very unhappy with the downward and unacceptable trend in shipping times that impacts adherence to the regimen and to achieving my goals on this program.

Made me sick and gave fake medical advice

Original review updated by user Nov 02, 2020
I tried it for 4 weeks. I had severe cramping gas pains and diareah after the first week. That continued until I stopped the diet which almost immediately got better. The coach tried adjusting my diet before she (not a licensed nutritionist nor doctor) diagnosed me with celiac... when I told here I was not celiac she told me I was allergic to soy... I also told her I was not allergic to soy and felt like I was attacked as I was told "we can't help you if your not willing to work with us" basically they where not sure why i was having issues and instead of helping or getting support themselves i was the problem. I was also told to "stick it out and it would get better" even though I had told them I am barely getting any sleep anymore because of the stomach cramps and frequent trips to the bathroom. At 4 weeks it wasn't getting better. I told them after weeks of being sick I was done with the diet and I was told "we are sorry you are choosing to give up on your diet and a healthy life style" and the continued to push the 3 and 3 plan after I told them to stop contacting me. I tried to make the 5 and 1 plan work but they are not doctors they take a brief online course and are optivia certified but they should not diagnose disease or allergies and tell you off when you disagree.

User's recommendation: It works for some people but it is not a one size fits all.

There is no need to get offended with your body possibly not agreeing with Soy. Soy is unhealthy for the hormones and reproductive system if consumed in excess —also consider that soy is mainly GMO and most GMOs cause a lot of gastric issues.

You are correct they are not certified at all, I started this program, honestly not impressed with it at all. I think it is to expensive, there are other ways out there to lose weight.
