Our Program is comprised of four components that all work together throughout your entire journey:
Your OPTAVIA Coach:
The one-on-one personal support and mentorship is what makes our Program stand out. As your personal
OPTAVIA Coach, I’m there to guide you through the Program and assist you with changing your lifestyle.
As your biggest cheerleader, I’ll be there for you to share every challenge and victory along the way.
I will support you in reaching your optimal weight. I’ll provide tips along the way and we’ll celebrate
the successes throughout your journey!
The Habits of Health
Transformational System:
It’s not just about getting your body healthy, it’s also about getting your mind healthy.
Our Habits of Health Transformational System is the educational component designed to help you
strategize your plan for reaching optimal health and wellbeing.
THE OPTAVIA Community:
In addition to your OPTAVIA Coach, our Community of like-minded people are all on the same health
journey and focused on creating better health. From live and recorded Client support calls and webinars,
our Community is a place where you can find support, share triumphs and ask questions.
OPTAVIA Fuelings:
Our nutrition plan is easy to follow—you don’t have to count calories or macronutrients, it’s all done for you.
With our Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan®, your body enters a gentle but efficient fat-burning state.
During this weight loss phase, you’ll have six small meals a day. Five of these meals are Fuelings, which are
nutritionally interchangeable and provide vitamins and minerals along with probiotics which help support
digestive health, as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. The sixth meal is a Lean & Green meal
you will prepare yourself, which contains a healthy amount of lean protein and three servings of
non-starchy vegetables. Along with drinking 64 oz. of water per day.*
We coach Clients through all three phases of the Program; reaching a healthy weight, transition and optimization.
Please use this as a guide as you share the Program with your Candidates
*We recommend drinking 64 ounces of water each day. Talk with your healthcare provider prior to changing the amount of water you drink as it can affect
certain health conditions and medications.
I’ll partner with you to place your first order to ensure you receive free shipping, 10% rewards, and your five (5) free
boxes of Fuelings. One of our kits will give you just what you need.
You’ll also be a part of OPTAVIA Premier, this is a recurring monthly order, which will ensure that you don’t run out
of Fuelings.* You’ll get a reminder email, which allows you to customize your order from one month to the next.
I’ll assist you with this when the time comes.
if a Client answered affirmatively to any of the health questions in “STEP 01: Awaken”
of the OPTAVIA Health Assessment, be sure to consult OUR “OPTAVIA Program Considerations.”
From listening to what you shared with me I feel that this could be a perfect fit for you and your lifestyle.
If you are ready to go, I am ready to coach you! What would you like to do?
If Not YET:
If YES, they are ready TO Move forward
on their Health Journey:
Great! Let’s get you started!
Let me guide you in placing your
first order, I’ll just need to verify your
contact information.
Your Program will arrive in about 1 week.
You’ll be receiving a welcome email soon.
Your transformation towards achieving your
health goals could happen quickly and when
it does, people will be asking you about it.
When that happens, you can refer those
people to me and receive “X” (if you choose
to do a referral program on your own to
thank people for referrals, please discuss
with your Business Coach).
Or, because people often prefer to be
coached by their friends and family, you may
want to consider coaching them yourself
with training and support provided by me.
You may not be thinking about this right now,
but who knows… you may feel so incredible
with the results you get that you may want
to share OPTAVIA with others. A significant
percentage of our Coaches were first
Clients who got healthy and then
decided to “pay it forward.”
Please call or text as soon as you receive your
comprehensive Program.
I appreciate that you may need to think
about this a little bit. How about I give you
a call in a few days to see if you have any
more questions?
Possibly set up a follow-up appointment?
If Candidate agrees, write follow-up on
Health Assessment.
Also ask, “as you meet others who are also
looking to get healthy, please feel free to
refer them to me.”
Follow-up structure:
Send a thank you text or email,
assuring them that you would love to
partner with them to [insert their why].
Consider sharing a story they can
relate to.
If you put your Candidates in your
Facebook Client support page, ask them
for permission to add them to this page.
Put them in your Section 1 - ‘Candidate
Follow-up’ folder and follow-up on your
follow-up day.
*To qualify for 10% rewards and 5 boxes of free Fuelings, you will need to subscribe to the Premier program.
Date Notes:
Use this area to track follow-up for those who aren’t ready yet:
A common way to check-in is by asking how their health journey is going.
Date Notes:
The Company (“We”) recommends that you consult your healthcare provider prior to starting any weight loss program, and during the course of your weight loss program.
Do NOT use any OPTAVIA® plan if you are pregnant or under the age of 13.
Before starting a weight loss program, talk with your healthcare provider about the program and about any medications or dietary supplements you are using, including especially Coumadin (warfarin), lithium,
diuretics, or medications for diabetes, high blood pressure or thyroid conditions. Do not participate in any OPTAVIA Program until you are cleared by your healthcare provider if you have or have had a serious
illness (e.g. cardiovascular disease including heart attack, diabetes, cancer, thyroid disease, liver or kidney disease, eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia), or any other condition requiring medical care or that
may be aected by weight loss.
The OPTAVIA for Teens plan is the only OPTAVIA Program appropriate for teens (13 to 17 years of age). The Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan® is NOT appropriate for teens, sedentary older adults (65 years and older),
nursing mothers, people with gout, some people with diabetes and those who exercise more than 45 minutes per day – if you fall into one of these categories, please consult your healthcare provider and refer
to www.OPTAVIA.com and talk with your independent OPTAVIA Coach about other OPTAVIA plans that may be appropriate. For special medical or dietary needs, including food allergies, refer to our program
information online, consult your healthcare provider and talk to your OPTAVIA Coach. Do not consume an OPTAVIA product if you are allergic to any of that product’s ingredients which are listed on the product
packaging and on the OPTAVIA website.
We recommend drinking 64 ounces of water each day. Consult with your healthcare provider prior to changing the amount of water you drink as it can aect certain health conditions and medications.
NOTE: Rapid weight loss may cause gallstones or gallbladder disease or temporary hair thinning in some people. While adjusting to the intake of a lower calorie level and dietary changes, some people may
experience dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, fatigue or gastrointestinal disturbances (such as abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea or nausea). Consult your healthcare provider for further
guidance on these or any other health concerns. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience muscle cramps, tingling, numbness, confusion or rapid/irregular heartbeat as these may be a sign of a more
serious health condition.

best for a Client. Some of these can be allergies, medication interactions, or general health conditions.

Coach TIPS:
As your Client begins their journey to optimal wellbeing,
they may feel hungry, tired, or irritable as their body
adjusts to a new way of eating. While adjusting to intake
of a lower-calorie level and diet changes, some people
may experience temporary lightheadedness, dizziness or
gastrointestinal disturbances.
When speaking to your Clients, here are a few additional
tips to make the adjustment period easier into fat
burning for your Clients.
You can remind them to:
Download and use the Habits
of Health® App to track their
Fuelings and water intake.
Stay hydrated with water.*
Consider choosing a start date
when you don’t expect any
social food-centered events.
Stay busy.
Approach their health journey,
one day at a time.
Open up Your LifeBook, put
your name in it & read the
introduction, once in a fat
burning state.
Avoid temptations, and stay
focused on your health goals.
Sip on 1 cup of broth or eat 2 dill
pickle spears (as needed in the
first few days). If Client has no
sodium restrictions.
Wait to start exercising for 2 – 3
weeks on the Optimal Weight
5 & 1 Plan®. We recommend
checking with your doctor
before starting any exercise
*We recommend drinking 64 ounces of
water each day. Talk with your healthcare

health conditions and medications.
