Our Very Low Carbohydrate Lifestyle

This website has been created by Registered Dietitians working in an NHS Trust in the Midlands. It is intended to support people who are thinking about, or who have started the Very Low Carbohydrate (VLC) Lifestyle.

The website contains information to help you decide whether to try to reduce your carbohydrate intake. If you decide to go ahead there are some resources that may help you to adopt and maintain the VLC Lifestyle.

This lifestyle does not suit everyone, and should be supported by a qualified Dietitian as well as your usual healthcare team. We have found it helpful for those of our service users who see our Diabetes Specialist Dietitians, Weight Management Dietitians and Bariatric Dietitians.

The VLC Lifestyle is for adults, and is not suitable for pregnant women, children or adolescents who are still growing.
