A VLCD weight loss program is designed for quick and rapid weight loss under careful medical supervision.
Such a weight loss can rapidly improve medical conditions linked to obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Why try weight loss shakes?
The rapid weight loss experienced by most people on a VLCD can be very motivating. Patients who participate in a VLCD program that also includes lifestyle changes may lose about 15 to 25 percent of their initial weight during the first 3 to 6 months. They may maintain a 5 percent weight loss after 4 years if they adopt a healthy eating plan and physical activity habits.
