What is VLCD?
VLCD stands for Very Low Calorie Diet. The Nupo Diet, which consists of six daily Diet shakes/Diet soups, is a VLCD. The legislation regarding VLCD diets is very strict to ensure that you as a consumer get 100% of the nutrients that your body needs when you follow a VLCD diet. According to the legislation, a VLCD diet may contain between 450 and 800 kcal/day. Studies have shown that you do not lose weight faster when you consume less than 800 kcal/day. When you are on the Nupo Diet, you will get an average of approximately 700 kcal/day spread out over six daily shakes/soups. By enjoying six daily meals, you will keep your blood sugar level stable while also getting all of the vitamins, minerals, fibres and proteins that your body needs.
