How it Works
Our meticulous and tailored approach will ensure long-term success
Most of our clients who seek help have already been through various diet plans, commercial weight loss plans, meal replacements and used various food/fitness trackers or apps. They usually have positive results to start with but eventually end up regaining the weight. Some regain more weight than they initially lost, leaving them feeling very discouraged.
Many people understand the concept of “calories in vs calories out” so it isn’t enough to tell them eat less and exercise more. If it were that easy then we’d all be doing it without any problems! Having seen thousands of patients who struggle with weight, our medical experience has taught us the real complexities of weight management.
Our secret is that there is no secret to effective weight management! People gain weight for various reasons including hormonal, psychological, medical and the list goes on. How can we give a single solution to such a complex problem? Instead, our experts use a unique 40-point system to create plans which help address the underlying cause for weight gain, help you lose weight and provide you the tools for long term weight maintenance.
We educate you so that you have freedom in your life and are no longer controlled by food. Why do I eat or overeat? How do I overcome cravings? Why do I not get hungry at the right time of day? How can I prevent stress eating?
The goal is to help you achieve a physical and emotional well-being so that you can be happy and have a good quality of life. We care much more about you than a number on the scale.
There are several causes of weight gain including:
- Altered metabolism
- Lifestyle changes
- Relationship problems
- Altered hunger pattern
- Unhappy childhood
- Work pattern
- Medications and many more

Our 12-Week Plans
Weight loss is determined by several factors. You will be surprised to learn how your metabolism is affected by several uncommon factors like sleep, hunger pattern, hormones, gut motility, working pattern, stress, anxiety, exercise intolerance etc.
Our experts work on a 40-point system to create our bespoke 12-week plans, which are broadly focused around the 3 key pillars of our specialist weight management: diet, activity and the mind.
simportion: We teach you to self-manage portions and be able to enjoy all foods in moderation. You will be prescribed portions using our own specialist formula. We help you understand you hunger and fullness and also help your over come emotional eating.
simaktiv: Regular and varied physical activity is essential to good health and successful weight management. However, we don’t believe that physical fitness should be limited to the walls of a gym. Our wide range of workout videos covers activities from dancing and aerobics to High Interval Intensity Training (HIIT). For those who have problems exercising (arthritis, shortness of breath, pain) we have low impact options to accommodate your needs.
simhappy: Call it your life coach, motivational expert or friend. We believe happiness should be the starting point of your journey, not the end result. This crucial part of the plan tackles all issues relating to the mind and lifestyle, helping you overcome various barriers to weight loss such as emotional eating, guilt, fear, poor body image, anxiety, anger and many others.
Join with a Buddy
Not every one wants to join a 1-2-1 programme due to financial reasons or feeling intimidated by the process. Not to worry, we have a solution for you too! Our specialists including doctors, dietitians, motivational experts find that people who are happy to work in small groups perform better. Joining with a buddy(s) who is a close friend of family member is very likely to increase success for both (all) of you. By going through this journey together, you each ensure that the other remains motivated to achieve their goals. By sharing both successes and setbacks you will never feel like you’re on this journey alone.
Working in small groups of known people not only improves outcomes but reduces the total cost. We provide an option in the specialist weight management plan to join in groups of 5 or less. However as the plan is still bespoke, we need to take into account each individual’s needs, medical history and other relevant factors. For this reason all group members must have an initial consultation before they join the plan together. For further details please e-mail email@example.com
