Some people struggle to lose weight no matter what diet or exercise regime they try. Others lose weight easily, but gain it back again just as quickly.
Iâ€™ve had great success helping patients manage their weight successfully. I develop a tailored, personal plan for each patient, which may include hormone re-balancing, nutritional advice, an exercise plan and supplements â€“ all designed to make your weight loss and weight management easier.
We can also include treatments such as carboxy therapy or M.E.L.T. for maximum results.
I believe that hormones play a big part in how easily we put on weight, and the areas in which our bodies store it. This is why Iâ€™ll often order a set of blood tests to determine your hormone levels before we finalise the plan.
You can read more about my views on how hormones affect the ageing process here. But they can also be the crux of the problem for patients who have struggled with weight management.
For instance, too much oestrogen and not enough progesterone can lead to excess fat below the waist â€“ what is commonly referred to as the â€˜muffin topâ€™. Large calves can sometimes be a sign of a slow thyroid, as can a puffy face in the morning. A larger belly may be connected to low progesterone levels.
If youâ€™re struggling with your weight, book a consultation and we can discuss how I may be able to help you.
