Jeni runs a weekly Lifestyle Clinic which is overseen by Jude Chalmers, our Clinical Manager. This is a 12 week programme and it is aimed at changing lifestyles and improving outcomes.
The first appointment is for 30 minutes and subsequent appointments last for 10 minutes. Patients are expected to attend every appointment and will be given a weight loss goal on week one.
This is usually set at 5% reduction from their starting weight. This is achieved through a combination of dietary and exercise advice, whilst medication may be offered where appropriate.
Bloods will be taken if necessary on week one and of course height, weight, BMI (body mass index) and waist circumference measured.
