About Chris Sloan

Chris Sloan, OPTAVIA Coach 75lbs weight loss

My name is Chris Sloan and I, like so many others struggled with my weight for years not realizing the toll being overweight was taking on my body. At the beginning of 2021 I began to take my weight loss efforts seriously and have lost 75 lbs so far on the OPTAVIA optimal weight 5 in 1 Plan! It's been amazing, and while my journey isn't over, I'm well on my way!

When I started I had a hard time finding the top OPTAVIA 5&1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best OPTAVIA recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!

For those not familiar, OPTAVIA is not some fad diet but instead is a program designed to help those who are looking to lose weight make better choices with their health and wellness via better habits.

We've worked hard to make sure that all OPTAVIA 5 and 1 recipes listed are approved for the OPTAVIA optimal weight 5 and 1 plan.

The recipes on this site are intended for the OPTAVIA 5&1 Plan; however, they can easily be adapted to a low carb or keto lifestyle. If you following a ketogenic diet or low-calorie diet you can enjoy many of the recipes found here to help keep you on track for your weight loss efforts.

Hey there, 

We went to make this recipe and the amount of salmon seems "off".  The recipe talks about making two patties, but then serves 3?  We are still trying ti figure this whole Optavia program out.   Have to say that the patties were a huge hit with our large family of teenage boys...would just like to make sure we are eating what we should be eating. 


Thank you for putting together this website!  We are going to be using lots of your recipes in the near future!

Is the "1.5 oz Canned Pink Salmon" correct?  We can get cans around 4 oz.  Should this be 14.5 oz, the large cans?

I wasn’t aware Optavia had multigrain crackers - is there more info on these or a comparable cracker in another brand?
