Weight Loss

Losing weight can be a very difficult task, but one that can be very rewarding to the mind and body. There are numerous health benefits to losing weight; you are less likely to suffer medical complications such as heart problems, diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure, all of which have a less likely chance of occurring. There are many ways to improve your health and aid weight loss such as exercising; this can include cardiovascular exercises and high intensity workouts which increases the heart rate resulting in burning calories. Diet is also a very important aspect of weight loss. A healthy diet alone can kick start your weight loss, but it must be done correctly. Many people believe starving themselves and eating hardly any food results in weight loss, this in fact is not true and can be very damaging to your health. Increasing your intake of vegetables, fruits and natural ingredients is a great start to getting healthier. Reducing the amount of calories and not consuming fatty foods and excessive sugars can also aid weight loss. Slimming aids are becoming increasingly popular to aid the process of losing weight.  

Diet and exercise can be a great start to aid weight loss but some patients may require medication to aid them through this process. If your BMI (body mass index) is higher than 30 your doctor can prescribe you medication such as Orlistat and Xenical.*  

 

Am I overweight?

Many people pass through life not knowing what their ideal weight or BMI (body mass index) is for their height and age. Knowing these figures can be important in determining if you are in fact overweight or clinically obese. You can calculate your BMI by using our BMI calculator which will give you an accurate reading to what your BMI is. Doctors usually prescribe Orlistat or Xenical when your BMI is 30 or above. Another way you can measure your weight or identify if you are overweight is to measure your waist and the circumference of the waist. As a general guideline if your waist is 105cm and above you may be considered overweight or obese with a high risk of health problems. In women this drops to around 90cm.*  

 

What is Orlistat?

Orlistat is a slimming aid which works by blocking fats being absorbed in to the body. Your body contains enzymes which absorb fat for various reasons, Orlistat works by blocking these enzymes completely allowing the excess fat to passed through your system. Orlistat can be very effective when coupled with exercise and a calorie controlled diet.  Although Orlistat is very effective it is not a cure for obesity or being overweight, the medication will only work if you incorporate a healthy diet and exercise into your regime. Returning to your regular eating habits which may include sugary foods such as chocolates, cakes or fatty foods such as chips and burgers will result in Orlistat being totally ineffective.*    

What is Xenical?

Xenical is a branded version of Orlistat and may be more recognisable to some individuals. Both Xenical and Orlistat are exactly the same kind of slimming aids, with the difference only being the branding.
