A VLCKD is defined as a diet of 800Kcal/day or less. It contains the daily requirements for vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fatty acids and proteins. Carbohydrates are under 30g/day.
You will only follow the VLCKD during the Fast Loss Stage of the method. On this very low carbohydrate diet, your metabolism will switch to a state of controlled ketosis, obliging your body to draw its energy from body fat reserves while preserving muscle mass. And this gives you the benefits of fast weight loss, no hunger and feeling energised.
Low-Calorie Diet involves reducing the consumption of fats, sugars, and proteins. This may result in losing muscle mass, and your body does not get the energy needed to carry out the normal daily activities.
