Once it is established that you would be medically suitable and that you are completely happy to proceed with the treatment the doctor will advise you of our low fat, low sugar diet programme and will discuss other courses of treatment that can help you manage your weight. You would then come back at regular intervals for your progress to be monitored by the doctor.
“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…
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)
Sustained weight loss for patients who are morbidly obese—usually defined as being 100 pounds or more over ideal body weight or having a body mass index of 40 or higher—is even harder to achieve. And serious health risks have been identified for people who move from diet to diet, subjecting their bodies to a severe and continuing cycle of weight loss and gain known as "yo-yo dieting."
At your first meeting, you will meet with a medical professional for preliminary testing. Certain states require that patients meet directly with a physician for the initial consult. In those locations, you will meet with a board-certified MD (medical doctor) or DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine). Some, but not all of the doctors, have additional training or credentials in obesity medicine.
There’s so much information around about obesity and most people are somewhat informed of the health risk that are associated with the condition. That wealth of information should conjour up a healthy reaction in most people to want to act positively to reducing their weight in a safe and controlled manner. That’s where our Weight Loss Clinic London Bridge, Southwark can help. We provide our all our new patients with a FREE consultation with a medical weight loss doctor.
Results were that I quickly shed some excess weight and body fat, reduced abdominal measurement (over the stomach); felt more energetic and more focused. Five month later, I am still feeling the benefits and, more slowly, the weight is still reducing. Monica was a great help, very responsive and flexible to my timetable. A great service, well worth the time and effort.

During your appointment you will be holistically assessed and a bespoke weight management plan will be designed for you.

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.
The Family Nurse Practitioner is responsible for providing a variety of professional medical services including administering physical examinations, annual physicals, managing chronic diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, prescribing medications, ordering films, and reviewing diagnostic tests if medically necessary.
"My wedding day was fast approaching and I had been frustratingly unable to get to my target weight. Metabolic Balance was the thing that made the difference. It is a tough programme but it gets results. I felt fabulous on my wedding day, not just because I was happy with my weight but my skin was glowing and I had no bloating or puffiness that I had before"
You don’t have to be an athlete to notice how nutrition can impact your performance. For you it could be your performance at work, in the gym, or at home with your family. Performance tells us a lot about your physiology. Whenever you feel low or are finding your performance is suffering, your motivation and desire to continue with the recommendations will diminish.
