Reduced Calorie Diet

What is it?

A Reduced Calorie Diet is a weight management program where patients consume a controlled amount of calories each day either using normal meals or a combination of normal food and meal replacement products such as OPTIFAST.

Who is it for?

Reduced calorie diets are ideal for people with less weight to lose, or want a more gradual weight loss.

How much weight?

Weight loss while on a reduced calorie diet is about 1 to 2 pounds per week. The diet is best used for weight loss between 10 and 25 pounds although it can be successfully used for larger amounts of weight loss if required.
