    Hi All,

    Just checking what actually is the basic requirements to meet the above since there are so many out there?

    I thought that a VLCD is considered starvation and that diets that put you in ketosis are okay?

    Any thoughts?

    A VLCD is a diet of under 800 cals a day comprising of food packs and bars. You go into ketosis so you generally don't feel hungry
