"The Micro Diet is a dietary program as revolutionary as the computer chip"
How it started
It was more than 70 years ago that nutritional researchers first sought to construct the ultimate diet: complete nutrition in the fewest number of calories. They were working against the odds. Some vitamins and minerals had yet to be discovered and they had no option other than to select conventional foods. Even so, they were remarkably successful and their dieters lost an average of 22 pounds over eight weeks with no ill effects.
Over the years these pioneering efforts have inspired other scientists to research what are referred to as Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCDs) and Low Calorie Diets (LCDs). These methods of dieting have now been more thoroughly investigated than any other way of losing weight.
Tens of thousands of dieters have been closely monitored in university hospitals and clinics. Millions more have safely used such programs at home. Since 1983 The Micro Diet program has been at the forefront. Clinical studies have been conducted in several countries with Micro Diet formulations ranging from 330-930 calories a day. The company has also thoroughly analyzed the ever-growing wealth of well documented research by scientists across the globe.
Today The Micro Diet recommends a minimum daily intake of 800 calories. Use one, two, or even three Micro Diet meals a day to ensure complete, balanced nutrition—and add a low calorie regular meal of your choice. Totally flexible.
The Micro Diet meals provide superb nutritional content with high grade biological protein and all other essential nutrients which surpass all recommended standards.
The Micro Diet is a dietary program as revolutionary as the computer chip—hence its name. For the company's food technologists have been able to achieve what was impossible in the 1930's—miniaturizing complete nutrition into the fewest number of calories with products that are absolutely delicious.
What you don't get with The Micro Diet is what you don't want—lots of calories that normally come from the fat and carbohydrate in your daily diet.
