We examined changes in high density lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism during a very low calorie diet weight reduction program in 6 massively obese normolipidemic women. The diet protocol consisted of a 1st low calorie diet (LCD; 1440, 1280, and 880 kcal daily for 1 week, each, in succession), a 1st very low calorie diet (VLCD; 420 kcal daily for 4 weeks, using Optifast 70), intermission (880 kcal daily for 1 week), the 2nd VLCD (4 weeks) and the 2nd LCD (880 and 1280-1440 kcal daily for 1 week, each… CONTINUE READING
