ActiDiet Flexi LCD (Low Calorie Diet) is similar to ActiDiet Total VLCD, with added flexibility and a slightly larger 4th meal.
This plan consists of 3 ActiDiet sachets + a healthy home cooked meal or an ActiDiet LCD ready meal + 2.5 – 3 litres of water per day.
Again similarly to ActiDiet Total VLCD, in following this plan you will consume under 80g of carbohydrate per day and therefore will experience the benefits of Ketosis too. This energy system known as Ketosis effectively makes your body target fat form energy rather than relying on carbohydrate from food. This not only makes for fast results but also suppresses hunger as well as cravings and in many cases boosts energy levels, therefore making a diet of this calorie intake much easier to stick to.
On this plan you will consume approximately 850 calories per day. This means you can expect fast losses on this plan although slightly slower than if you followed VLCD. However, by allowing more flexibility, this plan can sometimes be easier to stick to, and yield better long-term results for those who find VLCD just that little bit too structured or restrictive for their lifestyle.
Finally, if you are on a longer-term journey, LCD is a very good way of progressively tapering yourself off the diet having got near your target weight on VLCD, before moving on to LCD 1000, LCD 1200 and then Weight Maintenance.
