VLCD Rapid Shakes (very low calorie diet) are specifically developed for those with a BMI over 30, and aged between 18 and 65 years, who require dramatic weight loss in a short amount of time (ie. for surgery), or those with a BMI over 30 who want to kick-start their weight loss journey. It should only be taken under a doctor’s supervision.
On the VLCD Rapid program, up to three daily meals are supplemented with a VLCD Rapid shake, accompanied with a limited amount of food consisting of 3 cups of low starch vegetables* and 1 serve of fruit per day. In total, individuals will consume a total of 800 calories per day, with each meal being supplemented by a shake containing the vitamins and minerals recommended for each serve. The program plan can only be followed for a maximum of 12 weeks, and is not a sustainable, long-term weight loss solution.
