What is a LCD (Low Calorie Diet)?
Understanding Optislim’s Approach to Healthy Weight Loss
Our LCD program works by simply replacing 1 or 2 meals per day (depending on your specific weight goals) from the Optislim For Her or The Optiman For Him ranges with a snack or two in-between. Our 100 calorie cookies are a great snacking option!
How many meals you replace per day all depends on your specific weight loss goals. You can read more about the different weight loss phases below.
Benefits of our LCD program:
The most obvious benefit of an LCD is weight loss. By limiting calorie intake, the body is forced to burn stored fat for energy, resulting in weight loss.
LCDs have been shown to increase the body’s metabolism, meaning that it burns more calories even at rest. This is because the body adapts to the reduced calorie intake by becoming more efficient at burning energy.
Improved Insulin Sensitivity
LCDs have been found to improve insulin sensitivity, which is important for individuals with diabetes or insulin resistance. This can help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
LCDs have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to a variety of health problems including heart disease and arthritis.
Lower Risk of Chronic Diseases
By promoting weight loss and reducing inflammation, LCDs may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as obesity and can improve immune health.
Sustainable and Flexible
Unlike some crash diets that severely restrict food intake, LCDs are a more sustainable and flexible approach to weight loss. They allow individuals to still enjoy a wide variety of foods in moderation, making it easier to stick to long-term.
LCD Program Phases
LCD - Steady Weight Loss (Phase 1)
This is the initial phase for our LCD program. Simply replace 2 meals per day from the Optislim For Her or The Optiman For Him ranges with a snack or two in-between. Our 100 calorie snacks are a great snacking option!
It is important to make up the rest of your nutrients with a whole food meal. This could even be a nice burger!
LCD - Maintenance Phase (Phase 2)
This phase is about long-term weight management. You’re encouraged to maintain a healthy, balanced diet by replacing one meal per day with either an Optislim For Her or Optiman For Him shake and the rest of your meals and snacks made up from regular foods.
The goal is to sustain your weight loss and develop healthy eating habits for the future!
