“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).
“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!
“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
“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 more about how it works!
What happens at my first appointment?
Your first appointment is very important to us! At your initial weight loss consultation, we want to know more about you. You will meet on a one-to-one basis with a clinic doctor who will find out more from you about your lifestyle, eating habits and what you want us to help you achieve.
They will perform a medical assessment of you and will work with you to decide on the most appropriate medical weight loss programme for you.
Is medical weight loss safe?
Yes; all medication is prescribed by a doctor who will give you a health screening to check that you are suitable for our medication. They only prescribe safe and effective medication, most of which are appetite suppressants with a history of success to help weight loss and treat obesity by increasing one or more brain chemicals that affect appetite. If you would like to find out more information on our medication, please book your free consultation with one of our doctors.
Do I have to change my diet whilst on the medication?
Whilst the medications work with you to help control your cravings, we do encourage you to adopt a healthy eating plan alongside them.
When you come into clinic, we can work with you to help curb cravings, suggest replacements and give dietary advice on how to make sure you don’t sabotage your weight loss journey with the foods you are eating!
Do I have to exercise whilst taking the medication?
Increasing your activity levels is proven to improve your general health and well-being and we do encourage some movement alongside a healthier diet and the medication.
We understand that for some, the thought of exercising can be daunting! But don’t worry – we’re not expecting you to run marathons! We will work alongside you to find the best way for you to get moving, no matter your fitness starting point. .
What slimming treatments are available?
As each medical weight loss programme we devise is personalised to you, the medication you may be prescribed will depend on the findings from your initial weight loss consultation. The consultation will consider lifestyle factors, medical background and any medication you are currently on.
The Slimming Clinic offer the following treatments as aids to your weight loss journey:
- Prescription weight loss medication, such as appetite suppressants which can be taken in tablet or injection form (based on suitability)
- Fat blockers
- Chromium, which reduces sugar cravings and hunger pangs
- Natural slimming aids
Am I overweight?
One way to work out whether you are overweight or obese is to work out your Body Mass Index (BMI). Check yours by using our BMI calculator. If your BMI is on the higher end of the scale, it can lead to health risks in the future. In order to lower your BMI, it is suggested that you modify your diet and lifestyle.
For advice on how to do this, you can book a one-to-one weight loss consultation with one of our doctors who will discuss the best programme for you.
