“I had heard lots of stories about slimming pills, so I was naturally skeptical about attending a clinic. The doctor prescribed for me a course of tablets and a diet. I did not take them for the first week because of my doubts but I have to say, that apart from a dry mouth for the first few days, they were marvelous and I lost weight almost like magic. Yes, they worked and were safe.”
"My wedding day was fast approaching and I had been frustratingly unable to get to my target weight. Metabolic Balance was the thing that made the difference. It is a tough programme but it gets results. I felt fabulous on my wedding day, not just because I was happy with my weight but my skin was glowing and I had no bloating or puffiness that I had before"
Your first detox is like picking up a new sport. At first it is intriguing, you are super motivated and excited about the potential results. Then it begins… the pain and concentration that you need to have to strictly eat what you are supposed to eat/drink and NOTHING else. You have a moment of doubt and maybe even laziness, usually around the liquid days, where you wonder if you are going to be able to reach your goal and whether all this is worth it. You eventually pull through and once you are finally done, you realise how much better you feel, how much better you look and how excited you are about feeling in control of your body’s health. Angelique kept saying she regularly does a detox and I always thought it was because she was way more devoted than everyone else, but I get it now. I am actually looking forward to my next one!
A: Clinical results show that in three treatments, patients see an average of 4 cm reduction in circumference. Clinical trials have shown an average of 2 cm reduction in circumference even after a single treatment. As with any non-invasive procedure the results you see may differ from the clinical trial results. The Doctor will be happy to discuss this in detail with you during a consultation.
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.

Appetite suppressants, like all drugs, have side effects, so read the fine print and discuss potential side effects with a medical professional before taking them. Stimulant-type drugs can cause insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, drug dependence and abuse, and withdrawal symptoms. Drugs that work to prevent fat absorption can cause gas, soft stools, and oily spotting. Diet pills that affect neurotransmitters are associated with headache, nausea and vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, and dizziness.

Bariatric weight loss surgeries, such as gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), force patients to drastically reduce the amount of food they consume by surgically creating a small stomach pouch. Most gastric procedures reduce the stomach's holding capacity from about two quarts to two ounces. When eating, this pouch fills quickly. Because patients feel satisfied and full sooner, they eat less.
I got a grim report on blood tests 3 months ago: liver dysfunction, high sugar & obesity. I had to ...have a seatbelt extension and wheelchair to make it through the airports. I was told to lose weight, which I tried to do for years. I needed help and God sent me here!! I feel like I have friends who care. Three months later I am down 31 lbs, 52 inches, liver enzymes are within normal limits, triglycerides lowered from 251 to 121 and I've started going to aerobics class!!! I still have a long way to go, but I am being successful a day at a time. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!! See More
A: The patented UltraShape technology uses a handheld ultrasonic transducer to deliver controlled focused ultrasound at a precise depth within the fat layer. The technology is selective, meaning that only fat cells are broken down and surrounding important structures such as blood vessels nerves and connective tissue remain intact. The treatment area is marked and each point within that designated area is treated only once to ensure complete and uniform treatment.
According to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence, there has been a huge increase in obesity in the last few years, with roughly a quarter of adults in England being classed as obese. Through safe weight loss at HYPOXI Weight Loss Clinic London you can reap health benefits such as an improved life expectancy compared to before your weight loss. A BMI between 30 and 35 is known to cut life expectancy by up to four years while a BMI above 40 takes a decade off your life expectancy.
A: After the UltraShape procedure, released contents of the broken-down fat cells are naturally cleared by the body over a 2-4 week period. Circumference and fat thickness reduction is usually seen within the first 14 – 28 days post treatment. Maximum results are seen about 28 days post the final treatment. Monitoring of your results will be performed using the InBody Analyzer and serial measurements.
