What is VLCD meal replacement?

When strictly following A Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD), you should be targeting between 600 – 800 calories per day to help you lose weight. Perfectly refreshing and indulgent containing 200 calories per serving, this newly formulated Myprotein VLCD meal replacement is an excellent choice for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as desserts! Boasting an impressive macronutrient profile and added minerals, fibre and vitamins, we don’t sacrifice on taste with our fantastic choice of 5 mouth-watering flavours – discover your favourite today! 

What are the Key Benefits of VLCD meal replacement?

  • Remarkable Nutritional Profile– An impressive 17g of protein per serving will support a wealth of training goals, with protein contributing to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass and the maintenance of normal bones. Carbohydrates are your body’s primary energy source, so we have comprised 17g of carbohydrates per serving. Moreover, over 4g of dietary fibre per serving is perfectly tailored towards a healthy, balanced diet.
  • RI for Vitamins & Minerals– Each serving (51g) delivers in between 35-70% (based on Chocolate flavour) of your recommended daily reference intakes (RI’s) for the full spectrum of Vitamins and Minerals. Our expert team of nutritionists recommend consuming 2 servings per day which would accumulate to 80-100% of your RI’s for Vitamins and Minerals.
  •  Flavours–Strawberry, Banana, Salted Caramel, Chocolate and Vanilla.

"Very" Low Calorie?

Taste:

No issues with taste, mixability, it makes a decent tasting shake with just water, and takes care of my appetite for a good few hours. My problem is that this is described as "Very Low Calorie Diet meal replacement" - which anyone would assume to be (a) lower calories than, and (b) contain less fat/sugars than the same sellers "Low Calorie Meal Replacement"..... Wrong on both counts, actually! Side-by-side, the chocolate flavour of both the Low and Very Low have identical calories, yet maddeningly the Low variant contains less fats, saturated fats, sugar and salt than the Very Low! What on earth is the point of marketing this product as the Very Low variant when it has more of the "bad stuff" in it than the supposedly less slimline version??? As a final thought, the website and packaging suggests the serving is two scoops (51g). Yeeeeah, no. Having zeroed digital scales with an empty scoop, one levelled scoop of this powder weighs 47g. So don't throw two scoops in, or you're looking at the best part of 400 calories, and nearly 30g of sugar!

At 200 calories per serving I have 3 of these throughout the day and a small meal of an evening and am still only consuming approx 1000 calories per day which is more than enough for me to be losing a couple of pounds per week. The shakes keep me really full and I mix with approx 600ml of water and the shake is still nice and thick.

The supplement itself would be worth looking at, but 14 g of sugar per serving? Are you kidding me? Basically all the carbs you get, are from sugar.

I have previously used Low Calorie Meal Replacement however I have ordered this new formula and I'm extremely pleased. The texture is really smooth and creamy and the taste is even better than previous versions of this product. Using this product to replace breakfast and lunch has aided me to loose a considerable amount of weight as well as maintain a healthy life style. I would recommend to someone who is looking to drop weight but struggles with hunger throughout the day as this really does fill you up. I use one scoop twice a day with water and have a low calorie dinner allowing myself 1 snack no more than 100 calories. I'm very happy with the results.

Vlcd meal replacement has now replaced the low calorie meal replacement and is 3 x more expensive. The older low calorie meal replacement has roughly the same ingredients with 202 calories per serving and now the new "very low calorie meal replacement" has 200 calories per serving and costs 3 x as much. Just let that sink in for a moment. After a year of using my protein I think it's time to go elsewhere as this is a massive rip off. BUYERS BEWERE!!

Been taking this for a couple of months now. Mixes well with water and the chocolate tastes superb. Trouble is, I'm getting hungry soon after. Although I'm picking my 'snack' foods well such as prepared chicken, turkey, lean ham and beef to nibble on, I am not seeing much if anything at all regarding weight loss. I still weigh the same as a couple of months ago, it's just maintaining my weight. Plus, when nearly everything else was on offer plus additional discount, the VLCD was not. Very disappointed at that and the performance.

Very nice taste which is similar to a strawberry milkshake, although it's very very sweet, it could do with less sweetener, my personal taste would be half. Still tastes creamy when made with water. Serving size however is deceiving, as it says to use two scoops, 51g, however when weighed, one scoop was 47g, so if you use the scoops as a measurement, it will be almost double the recommended amount!! As this is supposed to be a meal replacement those calories add up!!

Being very sceptical about this form of product it was not until a friend told me of their success that I decided to try it for myself. I have been using the Vanilla and Strawberry flavours for about 5 months and have to date lost 34kg. I take 2 or 3 shakes a day depending on my shifts and eat a healthy main meal most days. Excercise has also played a key part in my weight loss but I do no more than 40 mins on an eliptical stridder 5 or 6 times a week. Great product, great taste and it even curbs my sweet tooth.

Goes Well With:

The Vanilla goes well with skimmed milk. The Strawberry goes well with skimmed milk and also just with water.

I've been taking this for months now. 2 a day with a light meal for dinner. I haven't seen much more than a maintaining my current weight. THEN I read about the 2 scoops vs the user reviews. I think the devil is in the detail. The website reads serving suggestion 2 scoops. Perhaps it means 2 scoops per day. 1 scoop with water for breakfast shake and 1 scoop with water for a lunch shake. Anyway I've invested now so I'm going to change to 1 heaped scoop not 2 per shake and see if I can shift some weight. Fingers crossed.

Goes Well With:

-1 for breakfast with a large black coffee then chased with 400mls of water atleast. -Same again for lunch. -balanced meal for dinner. -if desperate for something sweet (like me lol) have one for pudding mixed with less water to make it thicker BUT dont do this every night lol.

This product is new to me and was I worried I would not like it as I'm not a shake fan...but I was pleasantly surprised and found I love it...I have used it to replace a meal and found I'm full after it and remain full. The only down side I have found is that it is sweet but I just add more water n have been able to get the taste how I like it

I have mixed it with water or skimmed milk or both..I have added Banana. Blueberries. Strawberries all of them have mixed in well and tasted good

it tastes good but its sweet and thick which can be hard to get down sometimes. Its definitely good at stopping you feel hungry, especially when drunk with plenty water. I couple it with plenty black coffee as the lack of calories has a pronounced effect on energy levels. Its having a weight loss effect when used with a calorie controlled meal at end of day but thats due to a severe calorie deficit. Whether its fat or muscle loss, I don't know yet.

I bought this along with diet whey. I have a diet whey with water in the morning which tastes ok. (Tastes much better with milk) I then have 2 of these shakes (double chocolate mixed with water tastes good) throughout the day then my healthy main meal at night. I have them for a bit of weight loss and convenience as it's easier to have a shaker and 102g of podwer in my bag than cycling to work with a bag of food that needs stored in a fridge. I don't feel hungry throughout the day, and am guilty of not being on a strict diet, having more than the one planned "cheat" day, because I want to, not because I'm hungry. I've still lost a few lbs in a couple of weeks.

Perfect choice for us who wanna live intensively yet healthy. Only tried the Vanilla so far. I blend it with extra protein (Pea Protein), Oatbran and sometimes some extra carbs (Insta Oats). I drink this for breakfast and dinner everyday. I havent found any cheaper meal replacement. Remember that you only need 4 scoops a day. I allways make sure that i get my 500g greens/day.
