QuickStart is a medically safe but aggressive Very Low to Low Calorie Diet (VLCD/LCD) that is designed to take away control from the patient temporarily. It immediately stabilizes the blood sugars, controls cravings, and affects a medically safe, aggressive, and rapid weight loss. This is ideal for patients that need to see and feel a rapid weight loss, allowing you to regain control over food, or to break a weight loss plateau.
This program utilizes 100% protein supplemented “Sneals®” that Dr. Powell has personally selected from a variety of nutritional suppliers to include:
