Interested in diets for putting diabetes into remission?

If so, we can offer a number of different packages to suit your requirements from low calorie diet programmes for to low carbohydrate diets for type 2 diabetes.

A low-calorie diet is made up of around 800 to 1,200 calories a day. It’s a short-term diet of meal replacements (often soups or shakes) or very small portions of normal food. You would normally have meal replacements for about 12 weeks, then gradually reintroduce normal, healthy food again.

You need to talk to your doctor before starting a low-calorie diet, so you can be sure that it’s safe and could work for you.

We partner with different companies to provide meal replacement products (these are commission based arrangements).
