    Do it yourself or homemade VLCDs.

    Hi Everybody,

    We have noted the growing trend in homemade VLCD's. While MiniMins is open to all diets, we do have to have certain restrictions on what diet routines can be posted on the site. We have to do this as we do not want to allow these diets on the site, as by doing so we feel that we may be giving out the wrong signals and encouraging people to participate in potentially dangerous diets.

    Any diet 800 calories and below per day must be a sanctioned product like that of Cambridge Diet, Lipotrim, Lighter Life, etc, etc.

    I totally understand why minimins would do this. lighter life, Cambridge diet and lipotrim insure that dieters get a healthy balance of nutrients are supported by doctors and/or councillors

    It's also a concern as to how many people post to say they're doing such and such a plan, but they'll only have 3 packs in stead of 4 etc! Surely if these plans were safe to do with the reduced number of packs, then they would be sold that way

    A Very Low Calorie Diet, things like Cambridge, Exante, Slim & Save which are meal replacements where you have around 500/600 kcals a day. Diets like these are carefully constructed so theyre safe but a lot of people think they can make up their own VLCDs and get the same results, theyre the ones we dont allow

    Doing your own under 800 cal a day diet, is what doctors would refer to as anorexia.

    The shakes are designed to pack in vitamins and minerals. A home made version just isn't going to be enough nutrition.

    Help! My appetite has been getting the better of me for the last 5 years or so. I lost some wight with ww but not enough. I have bought Tesco Ultra slim shakes and am on the first day. These are mixed up with 250mls skimmed milk for 2 meals a day. I am supposed to have one proper meal which I shall have tonight. Plus 2 snacks of fruit a day. I have calculated that it will come out at under 1000 cals per day if I don't go beserk with dinner. We have loads of home grown veg and salad.

    Has anyone else tried Tesco own? The shakes contain protein, carbs and massed of vitamins and minerals. As I type this I am feeling a little hungry but keep drinking water which helps.

    The only thing that makes me think I can get through a VLCD is the knowledge that I am getting all the nutrition I need. I don't know how anyone could stick to a homemade one....




    11/02/14 - 18st 8lb
    14/02/14 - 18st 2.5lb (not 100% so not in ketosis yet) = 5.5 lb
    21/02/14 - 17st11lb (hoped for more due to ketosis) = 5.5 lb
    28/02/14 - 17st 5.5lb = 5.5 lb
    07/03/14 - 17st 1.5lb = 4.0 lb
    14/03/14 - 16st 13lb = 2.5 lb (Perhaps didn't drink enough??)
    21/03/14 - 16st 8.5lb = 4.5 lb
    28/03/14 - 16st 5.0 lb = 3.5 lb
    04/04/14 - 16st 2.5 lb = 2.5 lb

    total so far = 2st 5.5 lb

    Goal 1 = Get into ketosis! (Done 21/2)
    Goal 2 = Get into 16's (stones, sadly not clothes) (Done 14/3)
    Goal 3 = Monthly challenge: 14lb in 4 weeks from 14/3....
    Goal 4 = 15 stone by 10th May (holiday and friend's wedding)
