How Medical Weight Loss Works

The Slimming Clinic specialises in providing doctor supervised medical weight loss programmes and long-term weight management.
Since 1984 we have offered weight loss support to those who are overweight and obese in our nationwide clinics across the UK. We have built a strong reputation among our patients and their families; with more than 70% of our patients join our slimming programmes by recommendation from their family or friends.
The Obesity Management Association found that those following a medical slimming programme at least lost 9% of their body weight in just 12 weeks. Research shows that constant support through doctor consultations is an effective approach to weight loss with many patients experiencing great weight loss success.

The Slimming Clinic offers multiple weight loss treatments, including:

  • Medical Weight Loss Medication – appetite suppressants in daily tablets or injections
  • Fat Blockers
  • Chromium: reduce sugar cravings and hunger pangs

Michelle's Story

“I lost 3 stone 6 pounds

My weight had gone down regularly and safely and still continues to do so. My wedding dress had to be taken in by 3 dress sizes! I reached my target weight by my target date! I have lost 5 inches off my waist, 4 inches off each thigh, 7 inches off my back and 4 inches off each arm! Its not really about the physical weight, it’s about being able to throw away my size 18 clothes and fit comfortably into a size 12 (or squeeze into a 10).

Nina's Story

“I lost 5.5 stone

When I have lost weight in the past, the weight has always crept back on – and more. I can honestly say that this was, by far, the best slimming experience I have ever had. I honestly don’t think I could have achieved what I have done without The Slimming Clinic and best of all I have kept the weight off!

Michael's Story

“I lost 4.9 stone

I plan to keep the weight off in the same way I lost it; by constantly maintaining the balance between what I eat and how I exercise once you’ve found a routine its fairly easy and I know I can all way get support from the guys at the The Slimming Clinic if I need it

Kristina's Story

“I lost 4 stone 6 pounds

“I no longer see food as my enemy like I used to, I no longer see it as a comfort either. The most important factor that made it possible for me to succeed throughout this journey was realizing that this was not a diet, not a quick fix, but a permanent change of lifestyle. It was realizing that I eat to live, not live to eat.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

What happens at my first appointment?

All new patients receive a free initial consultation at one of our clinics. You will have a one to one consultation with an expert doctor who will discuss your eating habits, lifestyle and weight loss goals. The doctor will perform a brief medical assessment to decide on the most appropriate slimming programme for you. This may include slimming prescription medication, natural slimming aids and/or supplements.

Is medical weight loss safe?

All of our medications are prescribed by our experienced expert doctors after a medical assessment. We only prescribe safe and effective slimming medications, most of which are appetite suppressants with a history of success to help with weight loss and treat obesity by working in the appetite control centre of the brain. If you would like to find out more information on our medication, please book your free initial consultation with one of our doctors.

Do I have to change my diet whilst on the medication?

During your consultation, the doctor will issue you with a diet guide and advise you on a healthy eating plan. The quality of your everyday diet is improved by reducing the amount of foods and drinks that are high in calories, fats and sugars that you consume. These should be replaced by healthier options that are high in fibre, proteins and nutrients.

Do I have to exercise whilst taking the medication?

Gradually increasing activity levels is an important part of slimming treatment programmes. By slowly introducing exercises such as walking, aerobics or swimming in to your routine, you can increase your resting metabolic rate, become more active in your daily life and improve your general wellbeing and energy levels as well as improving your weight loss.

What slimming treatments are available?

The medication prescribed will depend on the findings of your weight loss consultation as well as lifestyle factors and your medical background.

The Slimming Clinic offers multiple weight loss treatments, including:

  • Medical Weight Loss Medication – appetite suppressants in daily tablets or injections
  • Fat Blockers
  • Chromium – reduce sugar cravings and hunger pangs
Am I overweight?

One way to work out whether you are overweight or obese is to work out your Body Mass Index (BMI). Check your BMI by using our calculator. If your BMI is raised, it may lead to health risks in the future. To lose weight and maintain weight loss in the longer term, it is necessary to modify your diet and lifestyle.
