Lennerz, M.D., Ph.D., from Boston Children's Hospital, and colleagues surveyed adults with T1DM who followed a VLCD and parents of children who did so.
"A VLCD that involves eating 1,000 calories a day or fewer should not be followed for more than 12 continuous weeks.
Using this approach the researchers pinpointed three major mechanisms responsible for the VLCD's dramatic effect of rapidly lowering blood glucose concentrations in the diabetic animals.
Medically supervised very low calorie diets (VLCDs) allow for dramatic calorie reductions giving the greatest potential for rapid weight loss.
We have previously shown that moderate acute weight loss of 5-7% with a very low calorie diet (VLCD) in obese subjects with MetS was associated with dramatic improvement in all the clinical components of MetS, even though the individuals remained markedly obese [42].
Specialist services such as very low-calorie-diets (VLCD) are also available.
Detoxes involving water fasts, juice fasts, and limited diets can be referred to as a very low calorie diet (VLCD), defined as a diet less than 800 kcal/day.

Quanto ao total energetico da dieta, duas estrategias comumente utilizadas sao o uso das VLCD ("Very Low Calorie Diets"--Dietas de Muito Baixas Calorias), com um consumo energetico menor de 800 kcal/dia, e as restricoes energeticas moderadas, com um consumo de 1200 kcal/dia ou mais (Cowburn, Hillson e Hankey,1997; Perinazz e Almeida, 2010).
These authors did not observe the improvement in physical efficiency after VLCD without regular physical activity.
