A friend of mine told me about Orsmond Clinics and in July 2011 I decided to call. I made an appointment to see Dr. Eva for a Medical Assessment because of my cardiac condition and I really needed to lose weight. I got started on my diet that same day. I started on the very low calorie ketogenic diet (VLCKD) which I found great and would highly recommend to anyone. I found it very easy to do and the recipes you are given at the clinic are great. The fact that the weight was coming off quickly made it all the better. Within a few weeks people started to notice and the positive comments were flying. I lost almost 2 stone in 2 months! By Christmas I was down over 3 ½ stone! Some people didn’t even recognise me! The diet was great and I had no problem sticking to it. We even went on family week-end breaks and everything went fine and I stuck to my diet no problem and even still lost weight. Christmas was great, I didn’t lose weight but I stayed the same weight and didn’t put any on!

Best of all was when I went back to see my Cardiologist (He had told me, at an earlier appointment, to go away and lose some weight and this would hopefully help). He couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw me. He was delighted with me and I really got the impression that I was being taken a lot more seriously because of the effort I had put in. He was very impressed with the fact that I had lost so much weight even though I was on medication and was unable to exercise. 

I am sure there are a lot of people out there who are on medications and have been advised not to exercise due to certain conditions who don’t realise that it is possible to lose weight even when you are unable to exercise.

I got so much support from home and the Orsmond Clinics and I am so delighted with myself because I am now down almost 4 stone and I feel great!
