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.

"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"
Some patients have a need for other consultations (for example, with a consultant psychiatrist/ full course of psychological therapy, or a sleep apnoea consultant), or may require blood tests, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, or overnight sleep oximetry; these would all be separately charged. If a patient requires more frequent support or help – including additional consultations or weekly support, these will be charged in separately.

Weight-loss programs typically have a monthly fee and may charge for packaged food or drink supplements, from $18 a month for the least expensive online plan, to more than $700 monthly. Food delivery programs featuring fresh food cost more. The cost of medically supervised weight-loss programs varies upon the services offered. Health insurance companies may cover some or all of your costs if you have weight-related health conditions such as heart disease, hypertension or diabetes.
Fat cells are dispersed unevenly throughout the body, and their distribution differs from person to person. Some people have a greater number of fat cells around the waist and hips, while others have more around their thighs. This is why body shapes vary so much and why so many of us are likely to gain weight in “all the wrong places”. UltraShape™ can change our contours by reducing the number of fat cells in a problem area.
A: Body contouring with the UltraShape delivers measurable, long-lasting circumference reduction in target body areas, and provides the following benefits: Non-invasive – The procedure is totally non-invasive and reduces the fat thickness and circumference of the treated area with no incisions, cannulas, injections or needles. Safe – The focused ultrasound causes a mechanical (non-thermal) effect that selectively targets only fat tissue without affecting the surrounding blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. Effective – After three sessions, patients experience an average of 4 cm reduction in body circumference. These results have been proven in clinical studies and are demonstrated in the tens of thousands of treatments performed worldwide. The results you experience may vary. Comfort – The vast majority of people who have undergone the UltraShape body contouring procedure report no discomfort. There is no anesthesia or sedation required. You simply lie on the bed and the technician guides a handheld device that delivers the ultrasound energy over your body.

It’s important to understand how the body uses food but also how we in our culture use food; for pleasure, socialising, celebrating, entertaining and all sorts of other reasons. Having a professional that you can speak to, discuss where things are going well and where the challenges lie for you personally, is worth a hundred contradictory diet books.
