Our modified liquid diet involves a 14 day period of fasting on 4 to 5 high protein, meal replacement drinks and a 100 to 200 calorie dinner. During this time, you will consume between 500 and 700 calories a day. Multiple 2 week programs may be added for a longer fast.
The reason we use protein is that it forms the building blocks of the body and is responsible for the general health of the body, including healthy bone and muscle development. Protein takes longer to digest than other elements in food and for this reason it has the ability to balance blood sugar levels. It reduces the need to snack and assists with muscle repair and recovery after exercise.
