Have you ever wondered how to maintain a healthy weight? I’m sure you did. The answer is actually very simple. We need to find a balance between the energy intake into the body, and the energy consumed. If you want to lose weight, you must enter less energy into the body than you consume. But putting it into practise often presents a challenge. It’s much easier to decrease the intake if we don’t feel hunger and we get all our body needs. You probably wonder what are the solutions that can make our path easier.

Diets based on reduced calorie intake can be divided into low-calorie diets (LCD 800 - 1200 kcal/day) and very low calorie diets (VLCD <800 kcal/day). The second one usually take place under medical supervision, lasting only a few weeks to a few months and are suitable for people with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30. Very low calorie diets may also be used by individuals with a BMI between 27 and 30, but only if they are already suffering from comorbidities caused by excess weight (eg. hypertension). The diet is not suitable for children and teenagers (except in case of specific, monitored weight loss programmes) and for pregnant and nursing mothers. Special caution is also needed in elderly people and people showing signs of serious disease or those taking drugs for chronic disease management.

What is very low calorie diet (VLCD) and which nutrients does our body need?

Start A Nu Life TodayToday, a very low calorie diet means a relatively short-term diet for a rapid weight loss (1.4 to 2.5 kg/week), while enjoying all the food in the form of complete meal replacements which must therefore be appropriately designed. Most of the products found on the shelves under the name of meal replacement, are not suitable for a very low energy diet (they can be used only to replace 1-2 meals a day), because they do not contain all the nutrients our body needs to function normally during the period of weight loss (at least 50 grams of protein, ~ 50 g carbohydrates and ~ 10 g of fiber per day as well as essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals).

Sufficient protein intake is very important for our body because it is the only way to protect it from excessive loss of lean body mass (this protection can also be a little bit strengthened with adequate exercise). And with 6 portions of nuMe slim shakes
or soups with collagen you get at least 70 g of protein per day. But our body also needs carbohydrate, because glucose is the only energy source for the brain. The most common side effect of very low calorie diets is constipation, that’s why fiber content is also very important in meal substitutes. The majority of fatty acids required for our body to function normally over a period of weight loss is obtained from our fat reserves, so their required daily intake is not as great. However, special attention must be placed to vitamins and minerals, because our body’s needs have to be satisfied during the diet by means of food supplements.
