Definitely, Jess. Lower in calories and a higher nutritional value. The VLCDs can replace 3 meals a day, whereas the others are really only for substituting 1 or 2 meals a day. The VLCDs offer all the nutrition you need with the smallest amount of calories. Although, I must say, the others taste heaps better!

Thanks for that information Kylie, I kind of thought it was Optislim, fingers crossed the banana Opti arrives on the shelves soon.

Optifast have only ever made Vanilla, Choc, Coffee or Strawberry Shakes. They also brought out a variety pack but it only has those 4 flavours in it. The banana flavour has been added to the range but our wholesalers our waiting on the stock to arrive from the manufacturer. They haven't given us a time frame, but as soon as I learn anything I will let you know.

Mandy, your chemist has not been ripping you off! At least not with regards to OPti flavours... ;)

Jessb89, the variety pack you mention is the Optislim LCD range. It is not as low calorie as the Optislim VLCD and is not nutritionally complete.

Yay!!! Considering I love the Biggest Looser Banana shakes and can only stomach the Chocolate Optifast shakes, I really dislike the other flavours.

Yeah, I have never found those flavours for Optifast either, not in shops or online.

Pity about the banana flavour - everything I've ever had that's banana flavoured has tasted like medicine!

Jess is that Optifast or Optislim you have been buying? Cause if it is Optifast i've been getting ripped off by my chemist.

Hi all

I didn't realize banana was new?
I've been buying the mixed seven day pack and that's included.
Along with straw choc vanilla caramel choc mint latte.. I think thats it.

Am so over the current flavours.

Hi, everyone. I have news! Optifast has introduced a new BANANA
flavour. Not sure how soon it will be available but thought I might
just let you all know in advance so you can keep an eye out for it. I
work in pharmacy and just found out today. It is not available in our
Perth wholesalers yet, they are still awaiting stock. It may be
available in other states, so perhaps check with your local pharmacy.
Maybe you can pre-order it and get them to contact you when it come in.
