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.

It’s important to understand how the body uses food but also how we in our culture use food; for pleasure, socialising, celebrating, entertaining and all sorts of other reasons. Having a professional that you can speak to, discuss where things are going well and where the challenges lie for you personally, is worth a hundred contradictory diet books.
I love the Metabolic Balance programme and find that it can get amazing results for some people.  I have had people in my clinic crying with frustration over the fact that they can’t lose weight because “NOTHING WORKS ANYMORE”.  Yet after a few weeks on the programme they see significant weight loss.  I know as soon as I write that your next question is ‘so how much weight did they lose?’ …..it depends (more below)
Want to improve your self-esteem? Plastic surgery is a great way to reduce any excess skin and fat left behind after major weight loss. Its goal is to restore more perfect proportions. If you have experienced dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, you’ll be able to get rid of loose skin so you can fit into your clothes better, in addition to getting rid of overhanging skin that might be causing painful chafing, rashes, and infections. If you have sagging skin in multiple areas, including the face, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back and thighs, then this program of procedures may be just right for you.

Traditional methods of weight loss can often be tiresome and, frankly, dull. But it doesn't have to be this way. There are several ways to get fit that eschew the gym and the jogging pants. Dance has seen a resurgence in recent years and is also an excellent form of exercise. Many gyms offer classes you can attend for a fee. But if you're especially keen on learning a skill, Pineapple Dance Studios offers classes for beginners. There are no joining fees and you simply pay a reasonable fee upon entry. For those into Salsa, check out Caramelo Latin Dance School, where both regular courses or one-day intensive session are available. For those looking for an intense detox and weight loss package, then Barry's Bootcamp may be suitable. They boast impressive results, but be prepared to work!
I got a grim report on blood tests 3 months ago: liver dysfunction, high sugar & obesity. I had to ...have a seatbelt extension and wheelchair to make it through the airports. I was told to lose weight, which I tried to do for years. I needed help and God sent me here!! I feel like I have friends who care. Three months later I am down 31 lbs, 52 inches, liver enzymes are within normal limits, triglycerides lowered from 251 to 121 and I've started going to aerobics class!!! I still have a long way to go, but I am being successful a day at a time. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!! See More

“It is great to be able to offer our patients a safe and effective non-invasive solution to fat loss that delivers impressive results without any downtime. The exciting development this device brings to the market is the ability to focus the ultrasound energy below the skin and destroy the fat cells without any harm to neighbouring tissues. The effect is permanent, so long as the patient maintains good diet and exercise.” Mr Christopher Inglefield
"I have spent much of my life on one diet or another and this is the first programme that has really made a long term difference.  I have stopped yo-yo-ing up and down and I have finally managed to stabilise. My weight is pretty much at the same level that it was at the end of my plan and that was nearly two years ago - that's what I call a result!"  
It seems so simple: Eat less, exercise more and lose weight. But for many severely overweight people, diets and exercise just do not work. Fortunately, we have the solution - bariatric surgery, which has a near 100% success rate in sustained weight loss. And for those who wish to try non surgical techniques at weight loss, we offer comprehensive programmes in both lifestyle and medical (tablet) treatments.

“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…

For example, many health experts suggest that dieters who receive regular face-to-face counseling are more likely to stick to a weight loss plan long enough to see results. But other studies have shown that remote counseling can provide the same benefit. And there are also some studies that support a ketogenic diet for weight loss. There are other studies, however, (and medical professionals) that have found ketogenic diets too restrictive and therefore not effective for losing weight and keeping the pounds off for good.

The ReShape Duo, developed by California-based Reshape Medical, is the world’s only dual intra-gastric balloon. The dual balloon has 3 potential advantages over traditional single gastric balloons: the shape of the dual balloon fits the natural curvature of the stomach, allowing it to sit in a more comfortable position; the two balloons can hold up to 900ml of saline occupying more space in the stomach,; and as each balloon is filled and sealed independently, in the unlikely chance a balloon should deflate, the other balloon will hold the device in place until it can be removed.
