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.

The London Obesity Practice at the London Bridge Hospital is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative obesity therapy aimed at patients with a BMI of 30+. The therapy focuses on healthy eating habits and portion control and consists of 2 parts. Firstly, an intra-gastric balloon, known as the ReShape Duo, is inserted endoscopically in an outpatient procedure, and remains in the stomach for a 6 month period, occupying space in the stomach making the patient feel full. Secondly, the patient is supported by a dietician for the 6 months while the balloon is in place and given advice on portion control and support to develop healthy lifestyle habits.

Anybody can drop weight dramatically but to actually lose fat without damage to your metabolism requires an approach that is unique in this industry. There have always been rumours of ‘photoshopping’ before and after pictures but the industry’s real ‘dirty secret’ is that many of the photos you see are of people who’ve been starved and dehydrated for a 10 day period before their photoshoot. As soon as they eat a ‘normal’ diet, these people gain huge amounts of fat and can damage their metabolisms to the extent that it’s tough to lose fat in future.
