The way we do this is through metabolic resistance training that is designed to increase lean muscle tissue (which is metabolically active). One of the biggest myths we hear is that women don’t want to ‘bulk up’ but the opposite will happen with this type of training. Muscle takes up less space than fat (per unit of weight) and so adding muscle will lead to a decrease in fat as metabolism is elevated. We also end each session with metabolic afterburner’s – exercises that are designed to keep metabolism elevated for 24-36 hours after each session.
Appetite suppressants, like all drugs, have side effects, so read the fine print and discuss potential side effects with a medical professional before taking them. Stimulant-type drugs can cause insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, drug dependence and abuse, and withdrawal symptoms. Drugs that work to prevent fat absorption can cause gas, soft stools, and oily spotting. Diet pills that affect neurotransmitters are associated with headache, nausea and vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, and dizziness.
Sustainable weight loss – You’ll not only lose weight, but you’ll end the yo-yo dieting cycle so that you keep the weight off permanently. Our long-term approach means that you’ll not only lose weight and get fitter and healthier, but you’ll also tackle the underlying causes of your past eating patterns and weight gain so they become a thing of the past.
Phase 2: Get in the zone: lasts for 14 days and is the strictest part of the programme.  Some people can get detox and withdrawal symptoms (headaches, cravings, etc).  I have other people who can feel hungry while they go through this adjustment phase.  It is best to avoid exercise during this phase.  At the end of this phase energy is increased and the weight loss results are usually very motivating.

For anyone that contacts me who is interested in the plan I always suggest arranging a phone call to discuss it in further detail.  It is important for you to find out a bit more about it from me and it is also important for me to find out a bit more about you.  This helps me judge whether it is right for you and your lifestyle. I just don’t see the point in persuading someone to do it if it isn’t a good fit.   I also suggest that we meet face to face to show you a copy of the plan so that you are 100% clear on how it works before you commit.  

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.

“When I started the programme I had spent years trying different types of diet and exercise regimes but deep down I knew I would not be able to succeed long term if I didn’t change the way I think about food. Now, I finally feel back in the driving seat when it comes to my attitude towards food. I no longer feel like a prisoner in that respect and feel totally in control which is an achievement I am absolutely delighted with! I have not binged on food for a long time and I now feel I am much more the real me. I am a lot happier and more confident almost all of the time. This is the way I used to feel when I was going through a good patch but there are no patches anymore. For the first time I really feel like I have a fit, healthy future ahead of me!” (Thomas Greaves, IT Consultant, London) more…
You cannot spot reduce! Weight loss results from an energy deficit; burning more calories than you take in. Aerobic exercise will help create this energy deficit. Genetics and gender play a role in where we store excess fat and where it comes off first. Abdominal exercises will tighten and tone the abdominals but will not directly affect the layer of abdominal adipose.
Secondly, our nutritional approach uses a method that has been shown to be much more user friendly than counting calories (calories on food packaging can be out by up to 25%!) and doesn’t rely on weighing every morsel of food that passes your lips. Our nutritional approach is about achieving optimal health while gradually increasing the quantity of food you are allowed while supporting muscle growth and fat loss. This is important as the industry ‘standard’ approach is to restrict/decrease food as time goes on which leads to muscle breakdown and a lower metabolism – both of which are disastrous as far as fat loss is concerned.
