    Hi, I'm just wondering if this is still the case. Researching VLCD for a presentation I'm giving. Thanks

    Thank you so much. Giving a talk in November (see my latest post for full details) and I'm going to say lchf not the only way. VLCD and bariatric surgery also. But I'm not sure how sustainable VLCD is for obvious reasons. I do know about the 2 year results. How is VLCD sustainable. And what if you are a thin diabetic! Not an option. Thanks again.

    Can you explain what you mean by this, please? The Very Low Calorie phase is not meant to be permanent.

    How short term is it exactly? 12 weeks? Then low carb? Just trying to learn more.

    As a TOFI at diagnosis, if I’d have used VLCD to beat my diabetes I’d have been dead by the end of the first week :p
