Cheap VLCD very low calorie diet programs in Greater Philadelphia


What should I look for in a weight-loss program?


Successful, long-term weight control must focus on your overall health, not just on what you eat. Changing your lifestyle is not easy, but adopting healthy habits may help you manage your weight in the long run. Effective weight-loss programs include ways to keep the weight off for good. These programs promote healthy behaviors that help you lose weight and that you can stick with every day.

Safe and effective weight-loss programs should include 
  • a plan to keep the weight off over the long run guidance on how to develop healthier eating and physical activity habits
  • guidance on how to develop healthier eating and physical activity habits
  • ongoing feedback, monitoring, and support
  • slow and steady weight-loss goals—usually ½ to 2 pounds per week (though weight loss may be faster at the start of a program)


Should you use very low-calorie diets (up to 800 calories per day) to promote rapid weight loss?

This type of diet requires close medical supervision and W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers Of Americas program offers both VLCD with 800 calories or LCD with 1000 - 1500 calories with or without meal replacement weight loss shakes and bars for safe, and effective weight loss.

What is VLCD?
A very low-calorie diet (VLCD) 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.
A VLCD may be used for a short time to promote quick weight loss among some people who are considered to be obese. The diet requires close care from your doctor and is usually combined with other ways to lose weight.
Since VLCD needs clinical supervision given the risks, you are strongly advised not to go on a VLCD on your own. If you need to lose weight, and considering an affordable, VLCD program for weight loss, you may want to consider W8MD.

 What is a VLCD?
A VLCD is a special diet that provides up to 800 calories per day. Using delicious and affordable liquid shakes, soups, or bars, which replace all or part of your regular meals. As W8MD program allows 1-2 grocery meals of your own, with each of the meal replacements as low as 100 calories to 160 calories that have the medical grade ingredients to help suppress hunger at the same time as providing all the nutrients, W8MD’s meal replacement program can help you lose weight quickly and effectively.

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. As VLCDs provide far fewer calories than most people need to maintain a healthy weight. This type of diet is used to promote quick  weight loss, often as a way to jump-start an obesity treatment program.
VLCD formulas are designed to provide all of the nutrients you need while helping you lose weight quickly. This type of diet is normally used for a short time—after which you will be put on a maintenance plan.
Benefits of a VLCD
A VLCD may allow you to lose about 2 to 5 pounds per week. This may lead to an average total weight loss of 44 pounds over 12 weeks. Such a weight loss can rapidly improve medical conditions linked to obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
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.
How can W8MD’s Medical Weight Loss Program Help?
Under careful physician supervision, W8MD’s delicious and affordable VLCD meal replacement plans can help you lose weight safely and effectively. Our VLCD plans start as low as 800 calories with 4-6 meal replacement supplements in the form of protein bars, shakes, smoothies, soups, and other weight loss meal replacement products.
Side effects of VlCD

W8MD physicians monitor all VLCD patients regularly—ideally every 2 weeks in the initial period of rapid weight loss—to be sure patients are not experiencing serious side effects.
Some patients on a VLCD for 4 to 16 weeks report minor side effects such as fatigue, constipation, nausea, or diarrhea. These conditions usually improve within a few weeks and rarely prevent patients from completing the program.

The most common serious side effect is gallstones. Gallstones, which often develop in people who are obese, especially women, may be even more commonly developed during rapid weight loss. Some medicines such as Actigall can prevent gallstones from forming during rapid weight loss.
