Healthy Weight Clinic

Sick of fighting the battle of the bulge alone?

 

Want a healthy weight but don’t know how to get there?

 

Not sure if you should go paleo, give up sugar, snack or not to snack, high fat low carb, or high carb low fat, Jenny Craig's, Weight Watchers, or intermittent fasting, or vegan/vegetarian?

 

Feel you have tried it all and nothing works?

 

Then come along to the Healthy Weight Clinic.

Since the clinic started in 2016, many of those who have completed the 12-week programme have lost at least 10% of their body weight plus reductions in LDL cholesterol (the bad guys) and HbA1c (a diabetes marker).

Run by Registered Nurse Tracy, and with supervision from your GP if needed, a plan is tailored for you individually. We will look at food, activity, sleep, stress, and whatever else may be important to you to move forward.

 

"The Healthy Weight Clinic has allowed me to finally achieve what I have spent the last 12 years trying to achieve - a healthy weight and feeling happy with my body. I have lost 18 kilos since I began visiting the clinic 11 months ago. I achieved this largely through diet; reducing refined sugar and carbohydrates from my meals, but also through increased exercise and tackling the mental barriers that had previously stopped me from reaching my goal. The guidance of Tracy and Cushla through this process was amazing. They supported me to make the necessary changes in my life, which were difficult at first, but became easier as the weeks went by. My weight-loss journey was not without its struggles, but Tracy and Cushla encouraged me through these hurdles and provided the accountability I needed to keep going. The process was challenging, but totally worth it. I live a better life and can give more to family now that I'm healthier and happier."

‍THE HEALTHY WEIGHT CLINIC

The clinic is designed to approach, achieve, and maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and lifestyle. An individual holistic approach is used in this 3-month programme.  The individual must be motivated to lose weight, must be prepared to visit weekly or fortnightly to monitor progress for the next 3 months and must have a body mass index of 30 or over.  If you are unsure if you are eligible, please contact Tracy.

 

Prior to the first assessment, participants are required to keep a 7-day diary of all they eat and drink, all activity including housework, and do a blood test which is non-fasting.

 

The initial assessment takes 30 minutes and includes taking baseline measurements, feeding back blood test results, assessing your diary, and discussing the plan of the week.

Thereafter, your weekly or fortnightly appointments take 15minutes and include a weight check, assessing your weekly diary and discussing the next plan of the week.

By your final appointment we compare your initial blood test results with your new results at the 12-week mark, take some more comparison measurements, celebrate your wins, and plan what’s next for you.

At the end of three months, depending on needs, a maintenance programme can be designed.  

Appointments will need to be booked directly through Tracy on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays (during her available work hours). Please contact Tracy with any queries about specific availability.
