KicStart™ VLCD -  intensive portion control tool

KicStart™ is a very low calorie meal replacement product, to be used as part of a VLCD (very low calorie diet). It is a complete meal in the form of a shake or soup and is used as a short term intensive portion control tool.

KicStart™ is an extensively researched, high quality and nutritionally complete product that will help you lose weight without compromising your nutrition and health.

It contains all the essential vitamins, minerals, electrolytes and trace elements.  

By replacing a normal meal with KicStart™, a greater reduction in the total energy intake (kilojoules / calories) can be achieved than could normally occur with a self prepared meal.

It is called KicStart™, as the weight loss on a VLCD is up to three times more effective than diet alone and will help  boost your motivation to keep going as you begin to feel the benefits of shedding some of those extra kilos.

Using KicStart™ as part of the Healthy Weight For Life™ program is a short term strategy designed to simplify your daily eating plan, which allows you to give 100% of your attention to learning and practicing your new lifestyle skills one step at a time.

As you move through the 3 phases of the Healthy Weight for Life™  program, the number of meals replaced with KicStart™ is gradually reduced to zero as you progressively build up the new sustainable healthy eating and lifestyle habits you will need to keep your weight under control for life.
