This diet limits daily calorie intake to 500–800 calories and uses nutritional supplements formulated to be high in protein and low in fat.

The VLCD is easily implemented, effective for achieving significant short-term weight loss of up to 20% at 6 months, and very safe if implemented and followed by a trained dietitian and exercise physiologist, as commonly employed in a cardiac rehabilitation program.
