If you are overweight or obese, and need to go on a low calorie, balanced VLCD diet, you may want to consider the W8MD meal replacement options. Providing all the nutrients at very low calorie level, W8MD meal replacements can not only provide all the nutrients but are also delicious.
Cost of meal replacements
Costing only about $2.15 each meal replaced, they are cheaper than even the ingredient cost of regular self prepared meals.
Why use meal replacements for weight loss?
Consuming regular food tends to maintain weight more so than help you lose weight as it is difficult to know the exact calories without a proper label on food. Using commercial formulas, that are designed to provide all the nutrients at as little as 800 to 1200 calories per day, meal replacements not only provide all the nutrients but also assist in curbing cravings and hunger.
W8MD’s VLCD meal replacement shakes
A VLCD is a special diet that provides up to 800-1200 calories per day. VLCDs use commercial formulas, usually liquid shakes, soups, or bars, which replace all your regular meals. These formulas are not the same as the meal replacements you can find at grocery stores or pharmacies, which are meant to replace one or two meals a day.
How many calories should you consume on a VLCD diet?
Depending on a number of factors, healthy adults need different amounts of calories to meet their daily energy needs. A standard amount is about 2,000 calories. VLCDs provide far fewer calories than most people need to maintain a healthy weight.
Rapid weight loss with VLCD meal replacements
VLCD diet is used to promote quick weight loss, often as a way to jump-start an obesity treatment program. Designed to provide all of the nutrients you need while helping you lose weight quickly, W8MD meal replacements such as protein shakes, bars, soups, snacks and other weight loss supplements can be used to help with quick weight loss.
W8MD weight loss bars
Protein bars are part of the very low-calorie diet (VLCD). A VLCD diet is not just any diet that is low in calories. It is a special type of diet that replaces all of your meals with prepared formulas, often in the form of liquid shakes, bars, soups and other supplements.
