Part of my work in clinic is to identity and address the root cause which is responsible for the symptoms a client is experiencing. The most common underlying condition I see is unbalanced hormones. Once I noticed that balancing hormones leads to the reduction of so many other symptoms, I knew I had to create a simple plan to help people understand and support their hormones.
The risk of an early death for an obese person is twice that of a non-obese person, according to recent studies. Morbid obesity can cause life-threatening health problems such as diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Weight loss surgery decreases your chance for these and other conditions, including sleep apnea, gastric reflux, asthma, arthritis and migraines. Evidence suggests that weight loss also lowers the risk of some cancers that are increased with morbid obesity, including breast, endometrial, colon and prostate cancers.

"I have spent much of my life on one diet or another and this is the first programme that has really made a long term difference. I have stopped yo-yo-ing up and down and I have finally managed to stabilise. My weight is pretty much at the same level that it was at the end of my plan and that was nearly two years ago - that's what I call a result!"
He feels weight management is the core driver in the management for all modern illnesses. Weight management is complex as the reason for weight gain is multifactorial. Successful weight loss can only be achieved after ascertaining the underlying reasons for weight gain and providing a structured, personalised plan. Providing a personalised plan to 30% of the population, who are obese with the current available models is not possible and unrealistic.
You will not necessarily burn more fat using a ‘fat burn’ program on the treadmill which keeps you in an intensity of 50 – 60% of your max heart rate. There is evidence to show that exercising at a light to moderate range burns more fat than strenuous exercise as the body has greater access to use fat as a fuel during these lower intensities. As you can see in the table below, a percentage of fat is used during all intensities of exercise, but at different rates. Because the rate of fat use is slow during light to moderate exercise, it is important to increase the duration of your exercise session – minimum of 30 minutes progressing to 60 minutes.
A: The clinically-proven UltraShape procedure is the most widely used non-invasive solution for fat reduction and body contouring. It uses focused ultrasound to target and reduce unwanted localized fat deposits, reduce body circumference and improve body shape. The UltraShape procedure is intended to help average to modestly overweight men and women reduce localized fat deposits around the abdomen, flanks (love handles), hips and thighs. It offers a totally non-invasive, painless no downtime alternative to patients seeking reduced circumference (a slimmer body) and an improved body contour. UltraShape involves no incisions, needles, injections, recovery time or maintenance treatments whatsoever. UltraShape is an ideal non-surgical procedure that enables men and women to improve their figure, go down in clothing size, and improve the shape in problem fatty areas that regular diet and exercise usually don’t get rid of.
The London Obesity Practice at the London Bridge Hospital is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative obesity therapy aimed at patients with a BMI of 30+. The therapy focuses on healthy eating habits and portion control and consists of 2 parts. Firstly, an intra-gastric balloon, known as the ReShape Duo, is inserted endoscopically in an outpatient procedure, and remains in the stomach for a 6 month period, occupying space in the stomach making the patient feel full. Secondly, the patient is supported by a dietician for the 6 months while the balloon is in place and given advice on portion control and support to develop healthy lifestyle habits.
Lastly, you enter the Wellness Phase when you have met your goal weight. Monthly visits help to keep you on track with your long-term weight maintenance plan, and additional testing and supplements may be suggested. During this phase, the dieter moves to a 40/30/30 eating plan where 40 percent of calories consumed come from carbohydrates, 30 percent come from fats and 30 percent come from protein.
