The overweight and obesity epidemic is perhaps one of the biggest health challenges we are facing here in the UAE – where rates are double the global average. And while the cosmetic aspects of excess weight impact significantly on self-esteem and emotional wellbeing, it is the impact on our health that is particularly devastating. Being overweight or obese can lead to a number of serious cardiometabolic diseases, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and even dementia.
The Intelligent Health Weight Loss Program is known for not only bringing fast results, but sustainable ones as well. We focus on both the weight loss and on reversing the damage caused by excess weight, and with our three-step methodology (outlined below), we make sure that the weight is not gained back once you achieve the desired results.
As with many of our programs, you will first be taken through a series of tests so that we can map out your overall level of health – checking key vital signs, a dozen different body composition measures, and a number of key hormone levels. Once all tests are complete, your Intelligent Health physician will design your tailored weight loss and management program, as per the following phases:
Phase 1 – The Induction Phase: Aimed at jump-starting your weight loss. This will most often involve the use of bioidentical hormone therapy.
Phase 2 – Nutritional Adjustment: A healthy weight is only sustainable through proper nutrition. We will educate you on a Paleo-style way of eating, and help you transition in a realistic and sustainable fashion.
Phase 3 – The Maintenance Phase: Here we focus on ensuring your hormones are balanced over the long-term, which ensures ongoing weight management.
At the end of the Intelligent Health Weight Loss Program, you’ll not only have seen tremendous weight loss results in a short space of time, but you’ll be armed with the tools and knowledge to adopt a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle.
