However, if your life is chaotic it can be really difficult to focus successfully on the plan. People who work extremely long hours; never do grocery shopping; hardly cook or prepare food at home; travel every week for business; spend most of their meals out socialising or at work events…..these situations make it really hard to do the plan well (although I have had clients in very demanding jobs who have made it work)
While our goal is to ensure you are successful in losing weight and feeling your best self, our primary objective is maintenance and long-term success. The Shulman Weight Loss team feels enormously proud to be leaders in the field when it comes to helping our clients lose the weight for life! Once you hit your goal weight, it will be our pleasure to suit you with a maintenance program that ensures your success will last.

However, if you are one of the increasing numbers of people who don’t cook at all, this makes it much harder to be successful on the plan. You need to be prepared to dedicate some time to buying groceries, food preparation and some basic cookery. Yes you can use ready cooked salmon and lentils or bags of ready prepared veg but I would worry about your ability to stick with the plan over the longer term in this case.

Phase 4: Maintenance: most people start this phase at week 12, though it does depend on how much weight you have to lose. During this phase I work with you to make the programme become a long term way of life. I show you how you can gradually expand your food list and explain which foods you should you should keep in moderation. You will end up in a place where you will instinctively know how to stay in balance.
I have tried every diet. I lost the weight but always gained it back. I even had gastric bypass and was not able to maintain my weight loss. My sister, Laura, made me an appointment at Ageless Medical Weight Loss and MedSpa. Four and half months later, I lost 60 pounds. But the most remarkable part of my story is that I have been able to maintain my weight loss.
“The best part about this programme was the motivational side – I didn’t know it was coming and it was just what I needed. Kyle made me feel comfortable and at ease and his style was clear and direct. Working through the programme ended my fear of being stuck in rut indefinitely and I am more committed to making changes, feel better about myself and am confident that I can achieve my weight loss goals.” (Smita Patel, London) more…
