The biggest mistake the fitness industry makes when it comes to female fat loss is prescribing too much cardiovascular exercise which can actually reduce fat burning capacity! At Embody we take a different, and much more scientific, approach to female fat loss by structuring programmes so that metabolism is increased in the days following each session and, long term, metabolism is greater even at rest!

There are many ways which one can go about losing weight in London. Gyms are a traditional and effective way to shed pounds, and London gyms have developed excellent customer service and superior facilities. Several large chains offer branches in London such as Virgin Active and Fitness First. One of the benefits of being a member of such gyms is the ability to use different centres across the capital and indeed the country. They offer standard gym equipment, along with swimming pools, classes and personal trainers. However, do expect facilities to differ from location to location. Prices start around £40 a month for an off-peak membership. There are of course many exclusive gyms across London but these services come at a premium. For those looking for a gym on a budget, the central YMCA is a great choice. Located close to the West End, the centre boasts a £25 metre pool and several classes including boxing and belly dancing.
Phase 4: Maintenance: most people start this phase at week 12, though it does depend on how much weight you have to lose.  During this phase I work with you to make the programme become a long term way of life.  I show you how you can gradually expand your food list and explain which foods you should you should keep in moderation.  You will end up in a place where you will instinctively know how to stay in balance.

If you are considering this plan, reach out to your local Medi Weightloss provider and ask specific questions about cost and insurance before you invest. You might also want to ask to see a sample meal plan to see if it is something that you feel you can follow. In addition, you can speak with your healthcare provider to get recommendations and suggestions. The more questions you ask, the more likely you will be to find a program that fits your needs.


Secondly, our nutritional approach uses a method that has been shown to be much more user friendly than counting calories (calories on food packaging can be out by up to 25%!) and doesn’t rely on weighing every morsel of food that passes your lips. Our nutritional approach is about achieving optimal health while gradually increasing the quantity of food you are allowed while supporting muscle growth and fat loss. This is important as the industry ‘standard’ approach is to restrict/decrease food as time goes on which leads to muscle breakdown and a lower metabolism – both of which are disastrous as far as fat loss is concerned.

Bariatric surgery is the general term for a variety of weight loss surgical procedures that reduce the size of the stomach, helping patients to lose weight and maintain health through reduced consumption, healthy eating and exercise. The surgery is a tool, not a cure, to help treat weight problems. Our mission is to help patients transform their lives through surgical weight loss when nonsurgical attempts have been unsuccessful.
There are many variables and factors in the complex world of health insurance. Most providers have so many different plans that we cannot give general advice to our patients. We will provide you with a “super bill” for your insurance company. This is signed by our physician with proper coding and any other requirements. You can then submit the bill to your Insurance Carrier for reimbursement. Although we do not see any monies ourselves, we do know that over 50% of our patients do get reimbursed for medical fees.
I was fed up with being tired, living an unhealthy lifestyle and struggling to deal with the everyday stresses that life brings us. Then I found Monica, a qualified nutritionist and lifestyle guru, who helped me change my whole way of thinking about my lifestyle. Monica encouraged and supported me throughout my journey, in fact she walked the journey with me. Her insight into my condition was simply amazing. Her knowledge and understanding of the direction I needed to take was exceptional. In five months I feel so much better, I have got my zest for life back and I have the added bonus of losing an amazing amount of weight in a healthy way, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without Monica’s support and help. Monica is simply superb and would I recommend her to someone else – absolutely in a heartbeat.
“When I started the programme I had spent years trying different types of diet and exercise regimes but deep down I knew I would not be able to succeed long term if I didn’t change the way I think about food. Now, I finally feel back in the driving seat when it comes to my attitude towards food. I no longer feel like a prisoner in that respect and feel totally in control which is an achievement I am absolutely delighted with! I have not binged on food for a long time and I now feel I am much more the real me. I am a lot happier and more confident almost all of the time. This is the way I used to feel when I was going through a good patch but there are no patches anymore. For the first time I really feel like I have a fit, healthy future ahead of me!” (Thomas Greaves, IT Consultant, London) more…
Your home and work environment. If you are surrounded by people who consume a typical American diet at home and work, you may have a harder time sticking to this plan. Most common foods (starchy carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice, baked goods) are not included in a ketogenic diet. Cravings for these foods may be difficult and even intolerable at times.

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.
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.

Obesity results from interactive influences of biological, physiological, psycho-social, behavioural and environmental factors. With such a multifactorial aetiology, prevention of weight gain, weight loss and weight maintenance is less than straightforward. Whilst the energy equation (calories consumed = calories expended +/- calories stored as body fat or glycogen) holds true, food choice is highly complex. As such, interventions that only address factors at the individual level, and do not take into account the social and environmental influences mentioned above, are unlikely to be successful.
