What is Cambridge Weight Plan?

Cambridge Weight Plan (formerly, the Cambridge Diet) is a nutritionally balanced formula food, available as shakes, soups, bars, and porridges. The original plan was developed by Dr Alan Howard as a formula, “Very Low Calorie Diet” (VLCD) for rapid, safe, weight loss prior to surgery. About twelve years ago the diet evolved into a more flexible programme, allowing titration of energy intake against the client or patient’s response, and was re-named, “The Cambridge Weight Plan”.

This remarkably precise titration process (precise because it includes formula food products rather than non-formula foods alone) can be applied in steps, under the supervision of an accredited Cambridge Weight Plan consultant, allowing the client to determine the pace of weight reduction whilst maintaining optimal health throughout the process.
