You might have tried numerous diets such as low fat, low GI, Atkins, Hollywood, Cambridge weekly weight loss groups, diet pills and many, many more. You have probably already learned, that short-term fast weight loss doesn’t work. Don’t expect to lose 3 stones in a month and keep it off. The problem is that these specialist fad diets usually don’t do anything to help you to learn how to manage your weight for life. They are not tailored specifically to your needs, your eating habits, your food preferences, your metabolism or your health conditions.
It took you a long time to put the weight on, therefore it will take a time to break your old habits and have your new slimmer body for the rest of your life. We will not provide you with another fad diet, but a clinically proven sustained individually tailored LIFESTYLE CHANGE programme. The length of the support will depend on your individual progress, but you may require a longer time to achieve a permanent weight loss.
Permanent weight loss depends on numerous factors, the 3 key factors being: change of your “internal dialogue”, a natural adjustment of your appetite regulating hormones and an individually tailored lifestyle programme.
Individual consultations are held in a relaxing and non-judgemental atmosphere. At the first appointment, our Dietitian will help you to formulate your weight loss goals and other lifestyle related goals. You will be able to share your weight concerns and your lifestyle challenges.
We will take a comprehensive assessment that will include:
You should also record your food and activity for the next 7 days to help during the assessment appointment.
The obtained data will be used to develop a tailor-made dietary and lifestyle change plan.
Together with the Dietitian you will decide which support package is most suitable to you for on-going support.
