“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

You cannot spot reduce! Weight loss results from an energy deficit; burning more calories than you take in. Aerobic exercise will help create this energy deficit. Genetics and gender play a role in where we store excess fat and where it comes off first. Abdominal exercises will tighten and tone the abdominals but will not directly affect the layer of abdominal adipose.
A healthy, balanced diet along with regular exercise need to be undertaken alongside the treatment and/or course. Clients with underlying medical issues and/or a history of poor health, diabetes, thyroid conditions, endocrine conditions or any other health-related conditions that may contribute to weight gain or a compromised metabolism may not respond to the proposed treatment and/or may require additional treatment sessions.
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.
However, if you are one of the increasing numbers of people who don’t cook at all, this makes it much harder to be successful on the plan. You need to be prepared to dedicate some time to buying groceries, food preparation and some basic cookery. Yes you can use ready cooked salmon and lentils or bags of ready prepared veg but I would worry about your ability to stick with the plan over the longer term in this case.
Our free monthly support groups provide opportunities before and after surgery to learn and ask questions of our dietitian, psychologist and bariatric nurse, as well as patients who share their personal stories about the challenges and successes of weight loss surgery. Support groups are open to anyone who has had or is planning to have weight loss surgery.
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!

The IRS will allow people who are diagnosed by a physician as being obese to deduct the costs of the services in this program. The revenue ruling, IR 2002-19, approves the fees related to services (i.e. medical services and nutrition education meetings) when they are occurring for medically valid reasons. A person must be under the guidance of a physician in order to qualify. The ruling does not cover the cost for foods or Meal Replacements, which people would have to pay for regardless of their weight.

“The best part about this programme was the motivational side – I didn’t know it was coming and it was just what I needed.

(Please note: Both the Fat Burn and the Cardio Program on the treadmill use an age related calculation to determine your training heart rate intensity. We do not recommend you to use these programs. This range is generally not an appropriate range for cardiac patients as most are on a beta-blocker which lowers heart rate. Please follow your heart rate guidelines (Training Heart Rate) prescribed for you by your kinesiologists as this is a more accurate range for you.)
