"My prediabetes has come right down, my blood pressure has come down, my weight has come down and I’m really feeling positive about my health."
Dr. Rajeswaran's approach to addressing obesity and related medical issues is a holistic path to recover lost health, as the physical, mental, diet and activity problems are all taken care of together being interlinked. He along with Dr. Kala, Cognitive behavioural therapist and Ms. Varsha, Specialist dietician, helped me to first gain detailed clarity on the ideal functioning of the human biology in relevance to what harm I was doing to my health due to my irregular working hours, improper diet intake-schedule and the stress I was putting myself through. They then enabled me to figure out the mind blocks I face against choosing a healthy lifestyle. Dedicated effort and time is spent by the team to lead me on a journey of self-discovery to overcome these issues in simple, practical ways which are derived from my existing lifestyle choices, which includes an implementable nutritive diet plan with simple home workouts. They are empathetic towards what a patient is going through and far-sighted to make sure the rectified choices are followable for life-time.
Dr. Raj's vision is for the patient to gain a learning for lifetime, which makes us self-sustained in caring for our health needs in future as well, which I found to be very pragmatic. His consultations are highly positive and interactive, which he encourages a lot, and provides us more and more insight into the micro details of our day to day health. Therapy sessions with Kala mam are very optimistic and eye-opening towards alternative behaviour and reactions towards day to day situations to progess forwards with my life goals. Ms. Varsha explains well about my diet with effective ways for healthy eating. She is very supportive and easy to approach for all clarifications. The weight-management program is also neatly structured with regular follow ups from them to ensure our success. The health app offers an abundant data-base of resource material on good food choices, postive mental health practices and active lifestyle as well. The team has a strong and confident demeanour based on deep medical expertise which instills a lot of faith in the process. I'm on my exploratory journey to good health with them and am highly confident in their care to reach a better future soon.
I had met with Dr. Rajeswaran and Ms. Varsha, they gave me the space to explain my concerns and elaborate my issues. The safe space they gave me to express my suprresed emotions was something I had needed. I walked out of my initial session feeling positive and motivated.
After trying many different diets and exercises I decided to book myself for a consultation with Dr Raj, since my consultation I have lost weight steadily and easily.
My interaction with dr raj has been a very elevating experience. Instead of just prescribing, he made me understand the changes in my body and how it impacts me so that i can make the right choices myself. More than just a treatment, i have found ways to improve my lifestyle which probably is the best guidance one can get. I have had a wholistic approach here and that has been the fun part. I have loved the way my health both physical and mental health has improved and definitely thanks to them.
Having been very unwell for over 12 months and passed from pillar to post Dr Rajeswaran is the first to have actually listened and not pick the easy option/answer of ME/CFS. Inspires confidence that he will work to support me and find an answer and help me get a life back.
I have recently started using the Claremont Hospital in Sheffield and have
been totally impressed by the high level of care and time their consultants
take with patients. Dr. Rajeswaran is no exception. Although I was focused
on the treatment of one hormonal problem, Dr Rajeswaran carefully and
methodically went into all my other medical conditions to ensure that any
treatment he recommended would help, if possible, the whole person
and not just this one condition. His attention to detail, the time he takes
to understand his patients, the care in selecting the right tests and treatments
his detailed clinic letters, has left me in know doubt that I am in safe hands and
the assurance of much improved health.
Kind and supportive programme that allows you to be you without feeling pressured or disappointed….. whilst seeing and experiencing amazing results both mentally and physicallyand with a sense of humour.
This has been the best 4 months I have had in a long time. In the time I have been with Simplyweight I have lost 12kg. The staff have been wonderful offering loads of advice with my health and how to lose weight with portion control. I highly recommend them.
I have recovered from COVID, but after a month, I was having some problems like chest and back pain, burning sensation in chest. I consulted Dr. Raj at The London Obesity Clinic through zoom video call. He advised me to take blood tests ,etc and explained me the problems and treatment for it. My main problem is I am obese and it is main cause for many health issues. Now with the treatment of The London Obesity Clinic, I'm Losing weight, and I am sure under their guidance I will reach the desired weight for my height and age, which will solve all my problems and have healthy life. Thanks to The London Obesity Clinic.
Dr Raj was very easy to talk to and explained factors relating to my issues in a clear manner and with a sense of humour.
Having undergone a package of support from Dr Raj and his team at Simplyweight, I am delighted to have lost 3 stones and feel like a new woman !
The support that I have received has been second to none, with expert dietetic advice from Addic , psychological support from Kala and of course excellent medical advice from Dr Raj.
This holistic approach was crucial for me at a time when I had a medical need to lower my weight for cardiac reasons. I have now lowered my BP to normal levels and have reduced my blood pressure medication by 80%.
The website offers a wealth of support & evidence with tutorials & meditations for all aspects of lifestyle intervention. I cannot recommend this team highly enough, and will continue using all their expertise in my journey of continuing weight loss and maintenance. It has been worth every single penny ! Thankyou Team for helping me to change my life ❤️
Finally, I found a specialist team who listened to me. I have been through several diets and pills, which helped to lose weight but when I stopped i put back weight, for the first time some one is addressing my medical problems and attitude to food. I don't want people telling be what to eat and what not to eat. I know all about calories. It is 2 months into the plan and I extremely confident that I will reach my goal. Thank you so much
How can you say thank you for somebody who changed your life? I came to simply weight not so much as a last resort but more of a last cry for help. Through simply weight I learned things about myself and the world, things I thought I already knew but I couldn’t have been further from the truth.
Today I stand here not just 4 stone lighter and healthier but equipped with the skills that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for helping me grow into the person we all should aspire to be and for giving me the opportunity to help others with everything I have learned. Last but not least thank you for showing me the way to a happy healthy and balanced life.
Such an enjoyable program! I really want to thank you and to say how amazing you are at making me realise my mistakes in life truly can be put aside and forgotten. All the therapists I’ve been to over the years for anxiety etc. have never had any lasting effects on me but after a few short weeks I’m already walking tall and proud.
I have lost a considerable amount of weight. However, what I do feel is I had such a nice change of mindset where I no longer need to attach a number of the scale to how I feel. I no longer need to achieve this number to make me feel good or like I’m achieving things in my life.
It’s so much more about the mental change rather than the physical one. And when you have the mental then the physical one will come. It’s just fantastic.
I’ve lost 25 kg. I’m feeling very cheerful and I expect to get to my intended weight and stay there, possibly for the first time in my life, to have that expectation rather than having that sneaking feeling that I would rebound. So this is the most successful program I have ever undertaken and I’m very glad to have done it.
It enabled me to learn how to control my appetite and how to eat healthy. I learned so much about my body, how to basically deal with family, friends, how to be out and about and still enjoy life and enjoy food. I’m so grateful and it’s one of the best things that happened to me to come to Simplyweight.
My health was deteriorating. I would become prediabetic, I was anxious and not feeling positive about myself. My anxiety now has gone from a big black hole to a quarter the size. I’m trying really hard to pull myself out of that doom and gloom and it’s definitely working for me. My prediabetes has come right down, my blood pressure has come down, my weight has come down and I’m really feeling positive about my health, the things that I’m eating and the road that I’m on is a road to positivity.
I’ve been struggling with my weight for the last 20 years. Tried all the diets, none of which worked really. Kept losing a bit and then going back to even more weight than I had. Joined the Simplyweight program and I’ve found it really beneficial both from a weight loss side, the simpeace side which is really benefitted me moreso than the actual weight loss side of things.
I’ve spent the last 20 years on antidepressants and I’ve actually come off them now. Just feeling a lot more happy with myself and more confident with myself. I would recommend this program to anyone really for weight loss and for general wellbeing.
I’ve managed to lose at least 8kg in weight, and I do feel better. My diet has changed and my whole outlook on life has altered. Out has gone the sugary foods but I do still allow myself the odd treat. I’ve started taking time out of the day for myself, 5 mins in the morning and 10 mins before I go to sleep to prepare myself for the day ahead or for a good night’s sleep.
It’s changed my relationship with my life. We now use smaller plates so it looks like we have more food but it’s actually less. When we go shopping we don’t just put things in the trolley and look more at what we’re buying and eating.
My biggest benefit has been the simpeace and instead of the weight loss that became my goal. Once I understood that at the start, I didn’t have a weight loss goal at that point. It became being happy in myself because I knew the weight loss would come after that.
And relaxing about who I am and what I do, just allowed me to have more time because I wasn’t stressing about the other things. So yes, to me the simpeace is the key and if you can accept that and give it the time for it to work for you then it really will.
I’ve lost about a stone and 4 pounds on the program which I’m really pleased about. I find all of the information on the website really useful. I have recommended it to lots of people and I find it really easy to follow. I don’t find it restrictive and although I don’t eat nearly as much as I did before, I don’t feel nearly as hungry as I did. The psychological aspect of the program has helped me as I’ve learnt the various different types of hunger and able to recognise them now. I will continue to be on the program until I’ve lost the weight that I want to. I’m not finding it a burden or a bind and for me that’s the beauty of this program.
I have lost 12kg in 3 months and I can fit into my smallest clothes which I haven’t worn since I had my children. Thanks simplyweight!
I was finding it hard to cope with my Diabetes and really needed to lose weight to improve my health. Also, my body image and confidence were really low and I never used to socialize. Thanks to simply weight I’ve managed to lose 3 stone in just 3 months and reduced my medication dosage too. Really pleased with the service!”
Expect to actually learn not just about why you eat but so much about yourself. That’s the one thing that I’ve really learned is that the weight for me is probably a very small part of everything else that’s going on and the things that I need to change and this has been a very positive experience. I’ve learned so much about myself and going forward all I can see that this is a continual thing. It’s not a quick fix so don’t expect to lose loads of weight really quickly. If you do, you’re not listening and you’re not doing it properly.
But I think this is life-changing and the things that I’ve learnt here I think will be with me for the rest of my life hopefully. All I can say is to give yourself the best chance is to participate, learn all the skills you’re being taught and take them forward because it will change you forever, I promise.
The main reason I joined this program was to get rid of the diet mentality. I’ve been on every diet you can imagine. I bought all the books, the apps, been to all of the groups. And yes, at the time I lost weight with all of them and with all of them I gained it all back on and then some. It was that diet mentality, that feeling that I needed to count, to weigh, to limit myself and restrict myself, it’s that that I really wanted to get rid of. Now I’m 11 weeks in and I can honestly say it’s changed my life. I can honestly say I have not been on a diet for the last 11 weeks and can honestly say I’ll never be on a diet ever again.
The weight and the food side of this program is important but not the most important thing. It’s really good to learn the science behind it and that’s what I found fascinating. The reasons why you eat or why I might overeat. The most important thing is how I’ve learnt to feel about myself, how I learnt to feel happy with me, about what I can do and achieve. How I learnt to set goals and live in the here and now. If I want to do something, I do it now.
I feel like it’s brought a lot of balance to my life. I feel a lot more balanced in the way I look at myself, the way I look at the activities I do. Even the food that I eat, my plate is more balanced.
Since coming to Simplyweight I’ve lost 2 stone (12.7kg) and I was diabetic. My blood sugar was over 15 when I came but now I’m classed in a normal range, averaging at about 6.
And I think it’s been life changing. I feel a lot better in myself. I used to have trouble if I got down to do a job, getting back up. Now it’s all become a lot easier. So I’m very grateful to Simplyweight for making this change in me and I hope to be with them longer and lose more weight.
The weight programs I’ve done in the past, the once a week Weight Watchers have been successful in their own way, but to have people being attentive, interested to know what you’re eating and how you’re getting on every day and encouraging you. People you can ask questions with, that’s made such a difference. That’s why I think Simplyweight is different and special.
It’s made a huge difference to my life, having not only lost weight but also had a lot of help mentally to deal with life and different aspects of it in a more positive way. I’ve certainly learnt a lot, things that I didn’t know at all, especially about food and the way in which we get taught about food throughout our lives which is not necessarily right. It’s been a really positive outcome. I feel healthier and happier than when I started the process.
I really thought [on positive affirmations] that this is not gonna work, this isn’t me, it’s not for me and how can saying positive things actually change or affect someone’s mental and their lifestyle in general. But I did it, and it’s completely changed how I am. A few weeks on, I feel positive, I’m doing things I would normally not do. Going to gym, socialising more. I’ve even changed the colours I’m wearing and I’m moving away from being negative. So if there’s any advice I could give is that positive affirmations really help and don’t undermine it at all.
The program is fantastic in the fact that you can eat basically anything you want. I’d have Christmas and New Year coming up and I was able to go out and enjoy my time with friends but instead of just carrying on eating after that, it’s about looking at portion control, calorific content etc.
Simplyweight is absolutely fantastic. It’s given me a whole new lease of life and I love me.
I would 100% recommend the Simplyweight Weight Management Programme. Having tried most of the weight loss plans available (you name it, I've probably done it!) over the last 10 years, I was pretty sure that bariatric surgery was the only option for me. - now I know that's not the case! The support from Dr Raj, Addic and the rest of the team has been second to none. I have completely changed my attitude towards food and exercise and they have helped me to realise that my journey is a marathon not a sprint. I have successfully lost 30lbs since the end of January 2021 and this was without starving myself on shakes/meal replacements like other diets! If you are considering joining a Simplyweight management plan, please use this testimony as encouragement to go for it. I wish I had found them sooner!
Simplyweight is absolutely fantastic. It’s given me a whole new lease of life and I love me. Caroline
