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.
Whilst the prospect of losing weight can be a daunting task, it is often made much easier with the support of others. Groups such as Weight Watchers hold regular meetings across the capital and offer advice on exercise and nutrition, weekly weigh-ins and support from professionals and peers. The website will assist you in locating your nearest meeting in London. The NHS website also has an easy-to-use location filter that will help you locate all the services which are available in your postcode.
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.
Our entire team is dedicated to making you feel secure and comfortable on your weight loss plan.
