Transitioning Off Meal Replacements

View and download your transition plan here.

Please inform your instructor when you are ready to start transitioning off meal replacements. Your program fees will reduce to $100/week plus $22 per box of meal replacements (you decide how much you need to purchase). 

Transition off meal replacements usually follows a 3-week plan that you do while still attending your weekly class.  Although you may choose to extend this transition, we do not recommend that you shorten it. Following this plan reduces digestive upset, gradually improves your metabolic rate, minimizes hunger, and makes your transition easier.

Transitioning Off Meal Replacements Support Group that meets weekly online on Thursdays from 6-6:30 p.m.  Ask questions on what to eat and how to add more food during this phase of your program. Find more information here: Transitioning Off Meal Replacements | Positive Choice

This is not your lifelong eating plan. You will create your long-term eating plan for weight maintenance during your 10-session Maintenance Program. Once you start your transition off meal replacements, please register for a Maintenance Orientation Session: Maintenance Orientation | Positive Choice
