When it comes to dieting and exercise, there is a lot of talk of ‘willpower’. This can backfire and make a person feel bad about them. For example, a person that has tried to unsuccessfully lose weight over and over again will end up feeling they have no willpower or are lazy. With a bit of careful thought, one can see why such an assumption is irrational. How can a person that has tried dieting over and over again be lazy? In the same way, people that talk about willpower tend to have an extreme and radical view of dieting and exercise, and their militant approach to weight loss might not apply to everyone.

Clinical studies have shown a measurable reduction in body circumference in most patients, even after a single treatment. The series of treatments is performed in one-month intervals, giving time for the body’s natural metabolic processes to safely clear away the destroyed fat cells. During these intervals, patients can treat other areas of the body and undergo other complementary procedures.
The ReShape Duo, developed by California-based Reshape Medical, is the world’s only dual intra-gastric balloon. The dual balloon has 3 potential advantages over traditional single gastric balloons: the shape of the dual balloon fits the natural curvature of the stomach, allowing it to sit in a more comfortable position; the two balloons can hold up to 900ml of saline occupying more space in the stomach,; and as each balloon is filled and sealed independently, in the unlikely chance a balloon should deflate, the other balloon will hold the device in place until it can be removed.

For some reason I have been getting lots of interest lately in the Metabolic Balance weight loss programme. These spikes of interest are usually down to some type of celebrity endorsement. Sam Smith and Boy George have both helped to raise the profile of the programme in the past.
