Lets Keep Things Simple!
Our VLCD Man plan is a popular plan for our male members. It's convenient (simply consume SML packs), easy to follow and with no meetings to attend, points or calories to count, it's a hassle free option for men who want to lose weight fast.
As a Very Low Calorie Diet Plan (VLCD), it's important you read about our plan and consider if this is the right plan for you. This plan can be used as a Total Food Replacement should you wish.
The Man plan is our Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) plan. Slimmers following the Man Plan would consume 4 of our meal replacements per day & have the added option of adding our SML Nutrition snacks three times in a week.
In addition to your 4 Meal Replacements per day, you have the option of also having SMLDiet snacks or up to 200g of vegetables (please see allowed food list for allowed vegetables).
You need to ensure you are well hydrated. Aim to drink 2 litres of water per day. Please read our staying hydrated page for further information.

Due to the rapid weight loss the Man Plan provides, we recommend this plan for slimmers with a BMI of over 27+. Please also ensure you read our medical Guidance page prior to purchasing any of our products intended for the Man Plan.
Prior to embarking on the Man Plan, we ask that you speak to your GP. We also ask that you ensure that you have read our medical guide as there are certain conditions that may mean the Simple Plan isn't suitable for you.
We suggest that you consider weight management when you are half way to meeting your goal weight. Our Balance Plan has been created to help slimmers re-introduce food at a pace that they and their bodies can manage.
The Balance plan offers a balance nutritional meal plan over a 4 week period. Following a Low GI diet, slimmers will slowly introduce carbohydrate to their bodies whilst cutting back on SML Meal Replacements. This allows your body to adjust to carbohydrate and different food groups and minimises the chance of any weight gain.
Our Balance book is available for slimmers to download FREE OF CHARGE & also features top tips from previous slimmers who have followed the Balance Plan, activities and insights from our founder & owner - Ally who is a qualified weight management counsellor.
Please note. The balance book is only available to slimmers who have previously purchased from the SML.
