Active Stage, duration varies according to the weight loss that is required. This is when 80% of excess weight is lost by combining PronoKal® products with permitted foods. The body enters a state of controlled ketosis in which energy reserves are expended due to a low intake of fats and carbohydrates. Weight is lost at the expense of accumulated fat, whilst preserving the muscle mass.
In the next stage, Stabilisation, the remaining weight (20% of excess weight) is lost while all kinds of foods are gradually introduced into the diet. Just as importantly, new dietary and lifestyle habits are acquired that will help maintain weight loss in the long term.
During the last stage –the Maintenance Stage– the patient, after reaching their target weight, is regularly monitored to help to maintain his or her long-term weight goal. This stage is adapted to the energy characteristics of each patient and combines traditional food products and PronoKal® Maintenance products.

The Pronokal dietary food and supplements can be collected and paid for direct with Pronokal based in Harley Street.
