Low calorie diets (LCD), and very low calorie diets (VLCD), are effective weight loss programs for people wishing to lose large amounts of weight safely and quickly. With careful medical monitoring, patients can lose 2-7 pounds per week on low calorie diets.

In a typical 18 week program, weight loss between 40 and 100 pounds can be achieved. If more weight loss is required, our doctors will extend the duration of the program to meet your needs.

What Does the Program Include?

Low calorie diets include meal replacement with medical weight loss formulas such as OPTIFAST, MEDIFAST, or PROTI. These products use precise portion control, stimuli narrowing and high protein, low carbohydrate formula to help you lose fat while conserving muscle mass and avoiding cravings and hunger.
