Non-surgical weight loss

If you do not want to undergo or are not suitable for a surgical weight loss procedure, our specialist weight loss dietitian Lisa Lovell can provide you with a weight loss management programme.

This will be tailored to you with a focus on the following:

  • Dietary advice - including structured diaries etc.
  • Weight loss targets
  • Exploring the physiology of weight gain/loss
  • Assessment of individual eating patterns
  • Mindful eating

You can book to see Lisa either for an individual appointment or a group of appointments. Lisa can also support you through the Counterweight Plus low calorie liquid diet programme. This is a 12 month programme developed and tested by professionals.

It involves three stages including 12 weeks total diet replacement, 12 weeks food re-introduction and six month's weight loss maintenance. An average weight loss of around 15kg is expected: this level of weight loss associated with improvements in many medical problems such as diabetic control, sleep disturbances and physical activity issues related to joint pain.
