For anyone that contacts me who is interested in the plan I always suggest arranging a phone call to discuss it in further detail.  It is important for you to find out a bit more about it from me and it is also important for me to find out a bit more about you.  This helps me judge whether it is right for you and your lifestyle. I just don’t see the point in persuading someone to do it if it isn’t a good fit.   I also suggest that we meet face to face to show you a copy of the plan so that you are 100% clear on how it works before you commit.  
Anybody can drop weight dramatically but to actually lose fat without damage to your metabolism requires an approach that is unique in this industry. There have always been rumours of ‘photoshopping’ before and after pictures but the industry’s real ‘dirty secret’ is that many of the photos you see are of people who’ve been starved and dehydrated for a 10 day period before their photoshoot. As soon as they eat a ‘normal’ diet, these people gain huge amounts of fat and can damage their metabolisms to the extent that it’s tough to lose fat in future.
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.

A: Each patient follows a personalized program and undergoes a recommended series of one to three treatments in order to maximize results. 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 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.
The blood test looks at standard blood parameters, this includes liver function, thyroid, glucose, inflammation markers, cholesterol, red and white blood cells, etc.  This can therefore provide a great tool to track progress.  I often see inflammation markers reduce, glucose regulation improve, cholesterol levels lower. Note: It is not a blood test that looks at “food allergy”
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.
Combining multiple procedures allows for one anesthesia and one recovery period. Each body is different, and Dr. Nimtz will tailor his approach to your needs, concentrating on your specific trouble spots, while keeping you safe throughout the procedure and your recovery. Commonly combined procedures include the lower and upper body lifts. The lower body lift tightens the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, and thighs. An upper body lift may consist of an arm lift, breast lift, and possibly breast augmentation. For men, a male breast reduction procedure may also be included.

"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"
A healthy, balanced diet along with regular exercise need to be undertaken alongside the treatment and/or course. Clients with underlying medical issues and/or a history of poor health, diabetes, thyroid conditions, endocrine conditions or any other health-related conditions that may contribute to weight gain or a compromised metabolism may not respond to the proposed treatment and/or may require additional treatment sessions.
Patients who come to the weight loss program at Portsmouth are tested for a range of health concerns—liver and kidney function, diabetes, stomach ulcers, gallbladder problems, hypertension and other issues. Beyond this, they receive psychological assessments and are educated about behavior modification, physical therapy and nutrition. Patients proceeding with the program are required to lose a percent of their body weight through diet and exercise.
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.
Phase 3: Relax: at this point you will receive a more extended food list allowing you to broaden your meal choices.  This is the time when a weekly 'treat' meal is added in.  Adding exercise at this point is extremely beneficial. This is when most people really start to see a difference in how they look and feel.  Hunger and craving diminish and you will notice how a small amount of food will leave you feeling satisfied.  Energy levels rise, skin looks glowing and all round wellbeing improves.

When it comes to overcoming weight problems, psychotherapies can help. It can increase one’s body-image, as well as improving motivation and confidence in being successful to achieve weight loss goals. Treatment can also help individuals find more effective coping strategies rather than binge-eating and provide the individual with a stress management kit.
Sustained weight loss for patients who are morbidly obese—usually defined as being 100 pounds or more over ideal body weight or having a body mass index of 40 or higher—is even harder to achieve. And serious health risks have been identified for people who move from diet to diet, subjecting their bodies to a severe and continuing cycle of weight loss and gain known as "yo-yo dieting."

Phase 2: Get in the zone: lasts for 14 days and is the strictest part of the programme.  Some people can get detox and withdrawal symptoms (headaches, cravings, etc).  I have other people who can feel hungry while they go through this adjustment phase.  It is best to avoid exercise during this phase.  At the end of this phase energy is increased and the weight loss results are usually very motivating.
Why do we wrestle with what we eat and how much we eat? Sometimes we eat the right foods in the right portions, and sometimes we eat the entire dinner table and all the wrong foods. Why is it so hard to eat healthfully? Whether you're trying to lose a few pounds or maintain a nutritious diet, you'll find many of your eating habits are due to emotional eating. So weight loss or weight gain become more an issue not of what you eat, but how you feel when you're doing it.
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
