“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…
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.

Fortunately, we have the solution - bariatric surgery, which has a near 100% success rate in sustained weight loss. And for those who wish to try non surgical techniques at weight loss, we offer comprehensive programmes in both lifestyle and medical (tablet) treatments.
