Some patients have a need for other consultations (for example, with a consultant psychiatrist/ full course of psychological therapy, or a sleep apnoea consultant), or may require blood tests, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, or overnight sleep oximetry; these would all be separately charged. If a patient requires more frequent support or help – including additional consultations or weekly support, these will be charged in separately.

Why do we wrestle with what we eat and how much we eat? Sometimes we eat the right foods in the right portions, and sometimes we eat the entire dinner table and all the wrong foods. Why is it so hard to eat healthfully? Whether you're trying to lose a few pounds or maintain a nutritious diet, you'll find many of your eating habits are due to emotional eating. So weight loss or weight gain become more an issue not of what you eat, but how you feel when you're doing it.
When it comes to dieting and exercise, there is a lot of talk of ‘willpower’. This can backfire and make a person feel bad about them. For example, a person that has tried to unsuccessfully lose weight over and over again will end up feeling they have no willpower or are lazy. With a bit of careful thought, one can see why such an assumption is irrational. How can a person that has tried dieting over and over again be lazy? In the same way, people that talk about willpower tend to have an extreme and radical view of dieting and exercise, and their militant approach to weight loss might not apply to everyone.
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!
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)
Contact us today to book a private consultation with one of our specialists at The London Obesity Clinic. During your appointment you will be holistically assessed and a bespoke weight management plan will be designed for you. We take into consideration everything from your previous weight loss experiences, medical conditions, eating and sleeping pattern to your social environment and childhood.
Prior to your first appointment with the doctor, we will first need to establish your BMI ( body mass Index) as you need to have a BMI in excess of 30 (27 with associated comorbidities), not be taking any medication for conditions such as epilepsy or depression, and provide confirmation that you are over the age of 18 (ID required) before any appointment can be offered.

“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
If you are interested in using Medi Weightloss to slim down, you should live near one of the company’s clinics. After an initial meeting with a doctor, dieters usually agree to weekly in-person meetings for the duration of the weight loss process. This weekly check-in is a cornerstone of the program, so proximity is essential. Clinics are located in 25 states and in most major US cities.
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.
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.

I have been helping clients to loose weight for over ten years now. My success has lead to employment in the film industry across dozens of films and I have also been employed to optimise the body composition of athletes to help improve their athletic performance. The majority of my work however, is with average, everyday people in my clinics in and around London.
