    What health risks are associated with VLCD's if you dont have the recommended BMI of 28?

    I think the problem lies in the fact that vlcd are designed for maximum fat burning, so if you dont have a largish amount of fat, as in bmi over28 your body will use burn energy from elsewhere, and you could end up with damage to muscles and organs
