Is Fat Burn the same as ketosis?

OPTAVIA fat burn is not the same as ketosis. Ketosis is a metabolic state where the body burns stored fat for energy, rather than carbohydrates. This can lead to weight loss, but it is not sustainable long-term and can be dangerous if not closely monitored. OPTAVIA Optimal Weight 5&1 program is a safe and healthy weight loss plan. The OPTAVIA fuelings are high in protein and fiber to help you feel full. They are low glycemic and have no added sugar. As a result, you can lose weight with on OPTAVIA without having to worry about the health risks associated with standard ketosis.

What does it mean to be in fat burn on OPTAVIA?

It means that your body is burning stored fat for energy. This usually occurs when you are following the plan just as the guidebook shows you. Your body will begin to burn stored fat for energy once it has used up its glycogen stores. Glycogen is a type of carbohydrate that is stored in your muscles and liver. Once your glycogen stores are depleted, your body will turn to stored fat for energy. This process is known as lipolysis.

Lipolysis is the breakdown of triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol. Triglycerides are a type of fat that is stored in your adipose tissue. When your body breaks down triglycerides for energy, it produces three molecules of free fatty acids and one molecule of glycerol. The free fatty acids can then be used for energy by your cells. Glycerol can also be used for energy, but it is not as efficient as free fatty acids. OPTAVIA helps you lose weight through science based nutrition and through incorporating other macro habits of health.

How long does it take to go into fat burning mode and Lose Weight?

It takes time for the body to burn through the stored glycogen in your system. Everyone’s body is different and the first few days on Optavia can be difficult, as your blood sugars are balancing out and you’re burning through the glycogen.

Most clients begin to experience fat burn in the first 4 to 7 days., assuming they are following the program guidelines. Remember, health and wellness is a lifelong journey. If your body taps into its fat reserves by day 4 or day 14, you’ll be better for it.

The biggest advice we give our clients is to continue to stick with the program. Losing weight is losing weight! You’ll experience the power of healthy habits for a lot longer than you’ll be on the weight loss portion of this diet. So commit to fighting against chronic diseases through your new healthy lifestyle from the beginning and the program will help you along the way!

How do you know if you ar in fat burn?

When enter into fat burn, you may notice a few changes in your body. One of the most common is an energy boost. As your body burns fat for fuel, you’ll have more energy to tackle your day-to-day activities. You may also notice a change in your mood. Burning fat can lead to a better sense of wellbeing and an improved mood. You are also likely to see a difference on the scale as you burn the fat that we are aiming to lose?! Pay attention to how your clothes fit. Your body composition will definitely change as you burn fat. These are all signs that you’re in fat burn.

What takes you out of a fat burning state on OPTAVIA?

The number one thing that we believe affects your consistent fat burning state is your commitment to the structure of your 5 & 1 program. Eating every 2 to 3 hours six times a day is key (5 OPTAVIA fuelings and 1 Lean & Green meal consisting of three servings of non-starchy vegetables and 5 to 7 ounces of cooked lean protein).

But it’s a veggie!

Remember, just because something is a “vegetable” doesn’t make it approved. Certain foods and food sources are not recommended as part of your green meals. These foods cause a rapid increase in blood sugar, which will affect your desired fat burning state. This will affect your overall body weight.

Another thing we notice is that people who continue to snack find themselves falling out of fat burner mode. Eating too many carbs has a greater impact than just adding more calories to your day. It affects your entire journey of burning fat.

Don’t Eat Too Little

This is important. If you don’t have enough of your daily healthy fats based on what the program guide teaches, you may affect your fat burning state. Failing to eat enough of your lean protein is also a problem, so use a scale and measure your servings of protein and vegetables for your lean and green meals.

This is not a plan of just eating fewer calories or fewer carbs and sugar. The OPTAVIA community is about creating a life beyond a diet or a number on the scale. We want people to experience a better mood, higher energy levels, less chronic pain, and a life of true wellness. You can’t do that on an empty stomach.

But of all the wellness tips we give to our clients, this is one of our favorites

Avoid the BLTs:


These are the little snacks we eat as we prepare meals for the family, friends, or as we socialize. If it’s not time for your lean and green meal, it doesn’t need to go into your mouth.


How often you find yourself cooking for the family and you just want to “lick the spoon?” These little licks throughout the day have a great impact, not just on how many calories you consume in the day but also in on your energy level, mood, and whether you remain in fat burn.


The next time you’re out to lunch with a friend and you’re finishing up your lean and green meal (a salad with added grilled chicken) just say “No thanks!” No thanks to having a taste of their burger or fries. Tastes add up quickly, as does the time it takes to hit our goal when we keep eating them.

How long do you “Burn” on OPTAVIA?

The answer to this question depends on several factors, including your starting weight, your current weight, and your goal weight. However, most people who follow the OPTAVIA program can expect this for as long as you stay committed and your body has fat stores to burn. The average person is on program for 12 weeks and loses 12 pounds. But how long you continue to burn fat depends on your commitment to eat correctly and follow the advice of your OPTAVIA coach.

This is because the program is designed to slowly and steadily help you lose, rather than forcing you to make drastic changes that are not sustainable in the long term. In addition, every healthy habit you learn and apply while on the weight loss program will help you keep the weight off for good. So, even though it won’t last forever, the benefits of the program will last a lifetime.

How do I you make the most out of the Burn?
