Is Your Weight Getting on Top of You?
Posted on 9 February, 2021
Weight management has never been as hard as it is right now.
- Significantly reduced daily activity due to lockdown
- Gym & leisure clubs closed
- Cold dark days
- Lack of optimism
- Increased comfort eating
- Increase in alcohol intake
Now, some of these may apply to you, some may not, or perhaps you can think of a whole lot of other causes.
Weight gain can be an acceptable issue, especially if weight gain still sees you within a ‘healthy’ body weight. For others it can be more distressing, whether concerns about health matters or just an added factor to make you feel a bit down in the dumps.
So how do you lose weight?
Many of us know, on paper it is really a very simple question - eat less energy than you use during the day in activities consistently and you will drop the excess baggage. But, life isn’t that simple is it? We are not robots, we are complex physical and emotional beings and our drivers and motivators come from all corners of our minds and bodies.
One of the most difficult things about reducing your calorific intake to less than what you are used to and to less the you are expending in energy, inevitably results in feeling hungry.
Feeling hungry is tough, you think about food constantly that can lead to hanger!
Hunger is the single most unaddressed issue in most weight management programmes you can think of.
Using our 'prescription only medication' dramatically reduces your hunger and makes calorie reduction easy.
Our programme involves us firstly
Ensuring you are suitable for the programme - we only treat people whose BMI is 27 or over.
Ensuring you have no medical reasons that would make using our medication inadvisable.
