Dr. Emma's Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) Program


With this VLCD diet program, we reduce your calories to effectively help you lose weight and restore your body to a healthier, natural state.

We reduce your calories low enough that you lose weight quicker than with the reduced calorie and balanced eating program. It is a great rapid start diet, as it makes you radically change your eating and “snap out” of your bad habits.

We include self administered injections of a hormone that studies show helps you to lose more fat than muscle. Many patients also say that the hormone helps suppress their appetite too.

Some patients may also need additional appetite suppressants to help with cravings during the reduction in calories of this VLCD diet. These suppressants are included in this program to help ensure your success. Be sure to view Dr. Emma’s page to learn more about this Very Low Calorie Diet
