Woman with Meal Plan

Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) for Women


The Woman With Meal very low calorie diet is our most popular plan, and the one we’d recommend, as it allows you to still eat a regular healthy meal in the evening.

Most dieters find this plan the easiest to stick to as it allows you use the Shake That Weight meal products for access to quick well balanced food during busy periods of the day and still enjoy a self prepared meals with others usually in the evening. This is also the plan to follow if you are a more active person as the slightly higher calorie allowance will support you better.

Don’t worry though if you don’t have time for your self prepared meal one day then simple observe the guidelines for our Man Plan.

How does the Woman with Meal Plan work?

Achieving a healthy weight target is all about finding the right balance between the amount of energy (kals) you consume and the amount your burn off . If you are actively trying to lose weight then eating healthy meals and maintaining physical fitness is the key to success!

Sometimes you need a bit of extra help, which is where a very low calorie diet or VLCD, can be the correct choice for you. The principal is simple, to lose weight you need to use more energy than you consume. A Very low calorie diet lowers your daily calorie intake significantly more than traditional diets.

This means more rapid weight loss than traditional diets.

VLCD plans like shake that weight are now recognised by the NHS and are openly discussed as a method of successful dieting on NHS choices.

The national institute for clinical excellence (nice) recommends that VLCD’s (diets under 1000 calories) should only be followed constantly for 12 weeks and then you should take a break. This diet is also not recommended for pregnant or breast feeding women and not suitable for children. Before starting any type of diet plan please check with your doctor that it is suitable for your personal circumstances.
