The composition of the Cambridge Diet and how to use it for weight reduction

  • John Marks
  • Alan Howard


The Cambridge Diet original formula is a compounded food in powdered form which, when added to water, provides soups or sweet drinks. The recommended intake of the powder (103 g per day) provides the US recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamins, minerals and trace elements. The United Kingdom RDA is less extensive than the American counterpart but the formulation covers all the UK RDA needs. All these are provided within a daily intake of 330 kcals (Figure 5).
