re you looking to reduce visceral fat in your body? Have you tried a low-calorie diet but found it ineffective? If so, then you may want to consider the Very Low-Calorie Ketogenic Diet (VLCKD). This diet has been proven to be more effective than other low-calorie diets in reducing visceral fat and liver fat, particularly in obese individuals. Studies have shown that VLCKD has resulted in improved haemoglobin levels, a shortened hospital stay, and significant reductions in visceral and liver fat. In this article, we will discuss the efficacy of the VLCKD and the Low-Calorie Diet (LCD) in reducing visceral fat, their risks and benefits, and how to successfully implement them into your lifestyle.

What is a Very Low-Calorie Ketogenic Diet?

The Very Low-Calorie Ketogenic Diet (VLCKD) is a keto diet where the overall calorie intake is less than 800Kcal per day. Carbohydrates are limited to 30g to 50g per day. In terms of fats, 10g a day is recommended, and protein requirements are met at a rate of 1g/per kg, depending on the ideal body weight.

The risks of visceral fat. 

Visceral fat influences how hormones work in a person's body. It is stored in the abdominal cavity of an individual. Thus, excess visceral fat can pose a potentially hazardous health risk.

The abdominal cavity contains visceral fat, which is close to many vital organs including the pancreas, the liver, and the intestines. Generally, the greater a person's visceral fat content is, the greater their risk of metabolic disorders, such as type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol levels, and heart disease. 

VLCKD has shown more effective results in reducing both visceral fat and liver fat compared to other low-calorie diets, especially in obese individuals. Based on studies done by Moreno, Basilio et al., And Albanese, Prevedello et al., it is clear that VLCKD has shown better and more progressive results in comparison with conventional LCD (Low-Calorie Diets) pertaining to visceral fat and liver fat. It has also resulted in improved haemoglobin levels and shortened hospital stays.

VLCKD has been proven to lead to significant weight loss with significant reductions in visceral and liver fat when compared to LCD.
