Phase 2 - Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD)
VLCD – Very Low Calorie Diet (500 calories per day).
The diet drops will release between 2,000 and 4,000 calories into your blood stream so the food you eat is just supplementing these calories and teaching your digestive system good habits.
You will not be hungry.
Remember it is important to eat 500 calories per day.
If the recipes you choose leave you short of that 500 calories target, increase the vegetable quantity to compensate.
These recipes are specifically designed for the limited ingredients available during this phase of the program.
Explained fully in the User Guide.
During the VLCD the portions for Protein (Meat), Fruit and Starch are a Fixed component of the diet…
Therefore it is important to add the calories for the 2 portions of Protein, Fruit and Starch that you have chosen for the day…
Deduct this figure from 500 and you will know exactly how much calories you can eat in vegetables. The list of vegetables in the Diet guide gives you the calories for a set portion of each vegetable….
it may be necessary to increase the portion to ensure you eat the full 500 calories.
DO NOT EAT MORE THAN THE STATED PORTION OF PROTEIN, FRUIT AND STARCHY CARBOHYDRATE…..to do so will affect your weight loss
