, : Very-low-calorie diets and electrocardiographic changes. Annals of Internal Medicine 102(5): 716-716

The 12-lead electrocardiograms of 22 patients who were 50 to 99% above ideal bodyweight and were on a supplemented-fasting programme for on average 8.5, range 4 to 14 months, were studied. The supplement consisted of pasteurized egg albumen 300 to 500 kcal daily, 45 g protein for women or 75 g for men, 35 g carbohydrate and 2 g fat. The patients were given 3 to 5 g NaCl, 3 g potassium, multivitamins and minerals. Mean weight loss was 39.7 +or- 18.9 kg.
