Overweight and obesity is an increasingly growing public health challenge, and according to the World Health Organization (WHO), obesity has nearly tripled since 1975. Between 15% and 20% of people in the Nordic population are considered obese, and as a consequence, the cost of treatment and related complications are increasing. Weight loss through lifestyle intervention remains a key treatment option in the management of obesity and is often a prerequisite for patients seeking to undergo bariatric surgery.
Low calorie diets (LCDs) are full diet replacement products, providing 800-1200 calories per day if all regular food is replaced. They are widely used and recommended in structured obesity treatments as well as in presurgical treatments, before bariatric surgery.
