About KicStart VLCD

What is KicStart™ VLCD?

KicStart™ VLCD (stands for Very Low Calorie Diet) is a unique, high quality, nutritionally complete meal replacement that has been developed, manufactured and packaged in Australia using the most up-to-date technology and ingredients currently available.

KicStart™ VLCD has been specifically formulated so that it is appropriate for use in a medically supervised:

  1. Very Low Calorie Diet program replacing all meals each day for the dietary management of obesity
  2. Partial VLCD meal replacement strategy, replacing one or two meals a day.

NOTE: Not all meal replacement products are the same. Unless specifically formulated for the purpose, most meal replacements are not sufficiently nutritionally complete for use as a VLCD.

What makes KicStart™ unique?

KicStart has been thoroughly tested in a number of independent CSIRO, university and hospital clinical trials across Australia. The results of these clinical trials have been presented at a number of Australian and International medical and scientific conferences.

KicStart™ has been used in large "real world" programs conducted with major Australian Private Health Insurance companies to help people lose weight and dramatically improve energy levels, physical activity and emotional wellbeing.
