The idea of attending a private medical diet clinic to help with losing weight may not be familiar to you. To help you decide whether you might benefit from our services, here are some of the questions we are most frequently asked by prospective patients:
1. Will I always see a dietician?
Yes, we have a dietician present during all the sessions that the clinic is open, except for very rare occasions due to sickness or holiday.
2. How long will my consultation take?
Your first session will require around half an hour, as you need to complete a detailed registration form and have a thorough discussion with the Dietician about your weight loss objectives, your lifestyle and your eating plan. Subsequent sessions will usually be shorter, around ten minutes, unless you have specific points that you would like to discuss in more detail with the dietician.
3. How long does the programme take?
This depends very much on how well you are able to keep to your eating plan and how much weight you need to lose, but a typical programme would take between three and nine months.
4. How much weight can I expect to lose?
This varies significantly between patients. Our aim is for steady, progressive weight loss that can then be sustained, rather than for crash dieting.
The amount of weight you lose depends on many factors. This includes, but is not limited to, how much weight you need to lose, how receptive you are to dieting, your age, and your activity level.
The average weight loss is 3-4 Kg (Female) & 4-5 Kg (Male) per month. However, depending on the above factors, many people are able to lose more.
5. Are the medications use in weight loss program?
No. All the Program by the clinics are extremely safe. We are practicing these from three years or more.
6. Can the weight loss program be taken if I have other health issues?
Your other health issues are taken into consideration when your weight loss program is prescribed.
7. How is the client monitored?
All our clients are monitored by our Dietician to ensure maximum weight loss and good health. This includes regular clients visits or by calls to clinic. Specific concerns of each client are addressed individually.
8. Are there any special foods involved with the program?
There are no special foods. We give you a basic, easy to follow food exchange program. You may pick and choose from the listing.
9. What happens if I deviate from the prescribed program?
