Patients who come to the weight loss program at Portsmouth are tested for a range of health concerns—liver and kidney function, diabetes, stomach ulcers, gallbladder problems, hypertension and other issues. Beyond this, they receive psychological assessments and are educated about behavior modification, physical therapy and nutrition. Patients proceeding with the program are required to lose a percent of their body weight through diet and exercise.
You’ve most likely already tried just about every diet out there, and some! You’ve likely joined a gym (or several over the years), maybe had a personal trainer, tried a bunch of slimming clubs, meal replacement programmes, and maybe some other weird and wonderful ways to lose weight, but it’s battle you’re still fighting and probably feel like you’re never going to win… Despair not, we can help!
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.
At your first meeting, you will meet with a medical professional for preliminary testing. Certain states require that patients meet directly with a physician for the initial consult. In those locations, you will meet with a board-certified MD (medical doctor) or DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine). Some, but not all of the doctors, have additional training or credentials in obesity medicine.
Despite London being a large metropolis, there are a plethora of green and outdoor spaces which can be utilised to help you with weight loss. Using so-called 'Boris bikes' as a form of transportation, taking advantage of one of the many residential parks, or accessing one the outdoor pools or lidos can be a productive and more enjoyable way of getting in shape than the confines of a gym.
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.
