How is this programme different from other weight loss programmes?

People gain weight for a number of reasons. They may benefit from weight loss by reducing calories, some may benefit from exercising or by both reducing food intake and exercising. However a significant number of people may not benefit despite dieting and exercising. They may have hormonal problems, psychological issues or a combination of both.

This a revolutionary programme and one of a kind in the world, designed by doctors, endocrinologists, dietitians, physiotherapists, fitness trainers, psychologists and motivational experts. We know that there is no one-stop solution for your weight loss success, so we offer a personalised, individual service which addresses all aspects of your life (not just diet and exercise). simplyweight is different because we offer support 24/7 from our specialist team with regular tasks and guidance to improve your confidence and self-esteem, craving and emotional eating.

What does simplyweight do?

Our simplyweight programmes involve 3 strands to enable your weight management.

1. simportion: Here we help you to create a manageable simportion diary so that you can plan your meals and portion size over the day, week and even the month. This will help us to plan together and enable your weight management. You also have access to all the recipes, food swaps and world foods.

2. simaktiv: Here we ensure that a varied and interesting range of activities will keep you moving and burning off those calories. We also provide regular advice for people who are unable to exercise.

3. simhappy: This is perhaps the most important part of the simplyweight programme as it supports you in finding ways to address your relationship with food and get to the root of any issues in your life. You will specifically be given help to overcome emotional eating and craving. In addition this section helps you to improve your body image, confidence and self-esteem.

The sections have been divided so that everyone with a weight problem can find a solution if they follow the instructions provided.

What is Diabesity?

People who are overweight or obese are more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes. The term “diabesity” is simply a combination of both conditions. Weight loss can help prevent Type 2 Diabetes. Weight loss improves blood sugar control in people with diabetes and some people can actually come off all their medications for diabetes. Diabesity can be best treated with gradual weight loss under the supervision of medical specialists. This programme is designed to prevent the development of Type 2 Diabetes, however it may also benefit people with existing diabetes. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medications.

What are the risk factors for developing Type 2 Diabetes?

Risk factors for developing Type 2 diabetes include:

Overweight or obesity, Family history of Type 2 diabetes,

Large waist circumference (more than 80cm for women and 94 for men, For South Asian men: less than 90cms),
