Weight loss with the Optifast® VLCD™ Program is achieved by the restriction of carbohydrate and total energy intake. This enables your body to use its fat stores as energy.
VLCDs (very low calorie diets), which are also known as VLEDs, or very low energy diets, have been shown to be very effective in the treatment of obesity, with weekly weight loss averaging approximately 2.0kg in the first 4-6 weeks, providing greater initial weight loss than other forms of calorie restriction. While your energy intake is restricted, the Optifast® VLCD™ Program provides the vitamins and minerals you need.
