Low Calorie Diet (LCD)
A Low Calorie Diet (LCD) program is a non-ketogenic program for individuals with less than 40 pounds to lose and for those who are unable to commit to a VLCD program. It is medically supervised or clinician directed. Patients experience weight loss of 2-3 lbs per week. A LCD incorporates grocery foods with meal replacement products or protein supplements. Robard offers a comprehensive non-medical LCD program, the Advanced Health Systems® Weight Loss Program.
Advanced Health Systems® Weight Loss Program
The Advanced Health Systems Weight Loss Program is a clinician directed Low Calorie Diet. It is a non-ketogenic, grocery food based solution where dieters consume 3-5 protein supplements and 2-3 grocery meals daily. Protein supplements in a variety of forms and flavors are typically used as in-between meal snacks or as meal replacements. The dieter’s primary focus is on nutrition and low-fat eating.
Utilizing a two phase goal achievement approach, the Advanced Health Systems Weight Loss Program emphasizes structure and convenience, and dieter education modules facilitate the formation of new, healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle behaviors. Advanced Health Systems also helps maximize bariatric surgery outcomes and enhance total wellness by providing nutritional support, exercise modules, and behavior counseling to pre- and post-surgical patients.
