“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…
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.
“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

Prior to your first appointment with the doctor, we will first need to establish your BMI ( body mass Index) as you need to have a BMI in excess of 30 (27 with associated comorbidities), not be taking any medication for conditions such as epilepsy or depression, and provide confirmation that you are over the age of 18 (ID required) before any appointment can be offered.

Children can take part in weight-loss programs, but child-centered programs are more difficult to find. The nutritional and psychological needs of children are different from adults, so talk to your child’s pediatrician before enrolling him or her in a formal weight-control program. Online sites and smart-phone apps are also available to help children lose weight in a healthy manner and can help protect the relationship between parents and children.
The ReShape Duo weight loss programme will be offered at the London Bridge Hospital by Dr Jude Oben, Consultant Gastroenterologist and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians Obesity Working Party. Dr Oben says, “I am excited to be working with ReShape’s Duo balloon because of their efficacy and comfort. I believe firmly that non-surgical options such as the balloon should very much be a part of the obesity management pathway.”

I have helped numerous clients succeed in significant weight loss journeys that involve losses of over 20-30 kg in body fat over the space of 1-2 years or more. I actually find such longer term journeys more rewarding as they allow me to teach my clients about the impact of nutrition and lifestyle habits on their physiology. This not only helps them, but also helps those closest to them as well.
