A Very Low Calorie Diet

Obesity in American is on the rampage, and the main reason is that people eat more food than the body needs says Dr. Anju Mather. People who want to lose weight and keep it off using a VLCD (very low calorie diet) need to find out more about it.

In a research study done on rats, one group of animals was fed a very low calorie diet and the other group was fed a normal rat diet. The rats on the very low calorie diet lived about one and a half times longer than the normal lifespan of a rat. The theory developed from this research is that excess calories actually cause the body to age faster. So a very low calorie diet can prolong life.

VLCD Theory

The theory of a VLCD, or Very Low Calorie Diet, predicates itself on not consuming more calories than the body needs. The Slim and Trim Protocol involves very low caloric diet. The reason we do that is because the hCG hormone, which is a cornerstone of the protocol, itself is based on converting body fat into energy. In other words, you are consuming your own fat for energy, so you do not need to eat so much food.

When patients are given daily injections of hCG hormones, a pound of fat becomes 3,000 calories. With that many calories converted from fat, a person does not need to consume more than 500 calories a day. Dr. A. T. W. Simeon did the original research for this in the 1960’s.

Empty Calories

Dr. Mather mentions she regularly sees people who eat for two – over 5,000 calories a day. Fast food is rampant, and every portion is huge, because food is cheap. However, most of the food contains little nutritional value, but it does contain toxins, which are stored in body fat.

So a very low caloric diet combined with a hormone shot breaks up the fat in the body and coverts it into energy, with no negative side effects. It only works in conjunction with the hormone shot. If you only do the low caloric diet it is called starvation, as you do not have the energy you need to perform the normal physiological functions of the body.

Reversely, attempting a very low calorie diet without hCG injections just starves the body. It will use up protein in muscle and structural fat, which the body needs, and make one weaker. The body needs the protein and structural fat to function.

Many successes have been achieved by the “Slim and Trim at Last” program at Angel Longevity Medical Center. But the key is to use both the hormone and the diet, because the hormone breaks down the stored fat, which is what makes a patient obese. The research originally done in 1988 has been refined and is now available to everyone.
