VLCD stands for Very Low Calorie Diet. The Nupo diet, consisting of 6 Nupo meals per day, is a VLCD. Legislation in the field of VLCDs is very strict and ensures that users of these diets are guaranteed to receive 100% of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients their bodies need in a daily diet – with a minimum of calories. By law, a VLCD may contain between 450 and 800 calories per day.
Studies have shown that you cannot lose weight faster by consumer fewer than 800 calories daily. The Nupo diet gives you about 700 calories spread over 6 meals. You are able to keep your blood sugar stable by regularly eating a Nupo meal – you get the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that your body needs – and you consume a minimum of calories for effective and safe weight loss.
