NHS Low Calorie Diet Pilot starts in 10 areas

Thousands of people will be able to access NHS soup and shake weight-loss plans to tackle type 2 diabetes as part of a pilot trialling the NHS Low Calorie Diet Programme.

5,000 patients in 10 areas will benefit from a year-long programme of support which includes ‘total diet replacement products’, such as shakes and soups, for three months, followed by a healthy food re-introduction phase alongside ongoing support to maintain weight loss and increase exercise levels.

There is no ask on local teams outside of the 10 pilot areas, who should continue to offer usual care. The Programme is based on clinical trials; one of which showed almost half of those who went on the diet achieved remission of their Type 2 diabetes after one year. This pilot tests evidence from the original trials in ‘real world’ implementation.
