He feels weight management is the core driver in the management for all modern illnesses. Weight management is complex as the reason for weight gain is multifactorial. Successful weight loss can only be achieved after ascertaining the underlying reasons for weight gain and providing a structured, personalised plan. Providing a personalised plan to 30% of the population, who are obese with the current available models is not possible and unrealistic.
Children can take part in weight-loss programs, but child-centered programs are more difficult to find. The nutritional and psychological needs of children are different from adults, so talk to your child’s pediatrician before enrolling him or her in a formal weight-control program. Online sites and smart-phone apps are also available to help children lose weight in a healthy manner and can help protect the relationship between parents and children.
How much weight will I lose? : it really does depend on how much weight you have to lose in the first place and how well you stick with the programme. I have seen 3-4 kg lost in the first two phases (2 weeks and 2 days) through to a staggering 10kg. For most people the first two phases sees the most dramatic loss in weight after which point is does slow down a bit. One lady on the plan at the moment has lost 7kg and she is a couple of weeks into phase 3 (more relaxed phase where one weekly treat meal is allowed) and is half way to her total weight loss goal.
As you move through the program, you return to the facility to attend weekly one-on-one support meetings. At these meetings, your health is monitored and supplements, prescriptions, or injections are administered. This is also a time when you can ask questions and make any necessary modifications to your plan. You may meet with a nurse, medical professional, registered dietitian, or fitness trainer.

Anybody can drop weight dramatically but to actually lose fat without damage to your metabolism requires an approach that is unique in this industry. There have always been rumours of ‘photoshopping’ before and after pictures but the industry’s real ‘dirty secret’ is that many of the photos you see are of people who’ve been starved and dehydrated for a 10 day period before their photoshoot. As soon as they eat a ‘normal’ diet, these people gain huge amounts of fat and can damage their metabolisms to the extent that it’s tough to lose fat in future.
I have helped numerous clients succeed in significant weight loss journeys that involve losses of over 20-30 kg in body fat over the space of 1-2 years or more. I actually find such longer term journeys more rewarding as they allow me to teach my clients about the impact of nutrition and lifestyle habits on their physiology. This not only helps them, but also helps those closest to them as well.
