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”
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.
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.

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.
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.

It seems so simple: Eat less, exercise more and lose weight. But for many severely overweight people, diets and exercise just do not work. Fortunately, we have the solution - bariatric surgery, which has a near 100% success rate in sustained weight loss. And for those who wish to try non surgical techniques at weight loss, we offer comprehensive programmes in both lifestyle and medical (tablet) treatments.
You will receive a customized weight loss program when you schedule your free consultation. We have five Different Dietary Plans to choose from including Full Liquid and Modified Liquid Fasting Programs in which our clients are losing Lose 4 to 8 Pounds per Week. We are medically supervised by a local physician and you will receive one-on-one counseling each week from one of our certified staff. We will monitor your progress & make the necessary
I was fed up with being tired, living an unhealthy lifestyle and struggling to deal with the everyday stresses that life brings us. Then I found Monica, a qualified nutritionist and lifestyle guru, who helped me change my whole way of thinking about my lifestyle. Monica encouraged and supported me throughout my journey, in fact she walked the journey with me. Her insight into my condition was simply amazing. Her knowledge and understanding of the direction I needed to take was exceptional. In five months I feel so much better, I have got my zest for life back and I have the added bonus of losing an amazing amount of weight in a healthy way, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without Monica’s support and help. Monica is simply superb and would I recommend her to someone else – absolutely in a heartbeat.
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.

Most nonsurgical weight loss programs are based on a combination of diet, behavior modification and regular exercise. Unfortunately, even the most effective interventions don't work for everyone. It's estimated that less than 5 percent of individuals who participate in nonsurgical weight loss programs will lose a significant amount of weight and maintain that loss for an extended period of time.

However, if your life is chaotic it can be really difficult to focus successfully on the plan.  People who work extremely long hours; never do grocery shopping; hardly cook or prepare food at home; travel every week for business; spend most of their meals out socialising or at work events…..these situations make it really hard to do the plan well (although I have had clients in very demanding jobs who have made it work)

"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!"  
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.
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.

At your first meeting, you will meet with a medical professional for preliminary testing. Certain states require that patients meet directly with a physician for the initial consult. In those locations, you will meet with a board-certified MD (medical doctor) or DO (doctor of osteopathic medicine). Some, but not all of the doctors, have additional training or credentials in obesity medicine.

I have tried every diet. I lost the weight but always gained it back. I even had gastric bypass and was not able to maintain my weight loss. My sister, Laura, made me an appointment at Ageless Medical Weight Loss and MedSpa. Four and half months later, I lost 60 pounds. But the most remarkable part of my story is that I have been able to maintain my weight loss.

You will lose weight quickly and consistently, probably much faster than on any other diet you have tried. We aim for a monthly loss of up to one and a half stone for our patients. Weight loss on Alevere Therapy is predictable so you will know how much weight you are expected to lose each week and how long it should take you to reach your target weight.
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.
