General

It’s simple. We care about your health and happiness more than a number on the scale. We strive to improve your quality of life and aid medical conditions like Type 2 Diabetes, PCOS, sleep apnoea, many of which can be managed effectively with lifestyle change.

Want to know more? Well, unlike other weight loss plans out there, our plans are designed by medical specialists (including Doctors, Dietitians, Endocrinologists, Physiotherapists, Psychologists and more) using evidence based methods.

Using our own formula you will receive a unique simportion allocation based on your personal details as opposed to a generic diet plan.

Not only that, you will have ongoing support in some form depending on whether you join Online or on a specialist package.

 

 

simhappy is your very own lifestyle & wellness coach, motivator and friend. However you wish to describe it, the goal is the same…to help you achieve lasting happiness in life.

Our philosophy is that you don’t need to lose X stone/kg to be happy but rather you must accept and love yourself before you can achieve any of your goals (weight or otherwise!).

We help you do this through guided meditations, affirmations, inspiring imagery, goal & routine setting and much more!

simportion is the food component of our plan. Instead of obsessing over calories we shift the focus towards portion control and balanced eating so that you can enjoy a flexible and healthy diet without having to give up the foods you love!

Our team have derived a formula to calculate your unique portions based on your personal details.

Some people may feel that they need more intensive support than the 100-Day Online Plan can offer. They may not be able to access one of our clinics to join an offline package. As a solution we decided to introduce The Virtual Doctor.

 In addition to all the benefits of the online plan, you will get 1-2-1 medical support from the comfort of your own home. As we need to carefully assess your needs and medical history, we take applications for this plan first.

This section offers a wealth of information and resources for you to make the most of your membership. All you need to do is register free to have full access to all of these features. The resources we offer are: medical videos, weight loss tools, downloads, recipes, blogs, selected specialist webinars and many more to come! 

Health Screening

Yes, you can. In our screening we take into account any allergies you have. Also, the beauty of our plans is that there is no set menu that you must follow. However we do offer this option for those who want it.

Of course! We can provide delicious and healthy alternative options for anyone who is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free etc. If you have any unique requirements then simply ask and we will do our best to accommodate your needs!

Yes you can join the plan but please consult your regular physician beforehand. Weight management during pregnancy should be closely monitored to assess your progress through pregnancy and the babies well being. Your General practitioner, midwife or obstetrician should monitor your weight.

You will find excellent resources for weight management before and pregnancy in the website. Please register to get all the information you need. Any changes you wish to adopt should be done only after consultation with your doctor and/or midwife.

Currently the information obtained on this website is intended for individuals who are 18 years or older. Any one who is keen on weight management and below 18 years of age should seek help from us through their parent(s)/guardian(s).

You will still be able to come for consultations or join a specialist plan as long as you have a parent/guardian with you.

Yes, you can follow our plans with any religious restrictions. Some of these restrictions have already been taken into consideration in our meal plans. Our team are always open to receiving your questions and we will try our best to accommodate your needs. 

Anyone can join simplyweight!

Do any of these sound like you?

  • You are fed up of wasting money of expensive diets and plans that don’t work in the long-run.
  • You want the truth. That is accurate, evidence-based advice from experienced specialists
  • You want to be self-sufficient and manage your own weight but could really benefit from support and encouragement
  • You want to be happy and not have your happiness linked to weight

If you have been diagnosed with or are concerned you may have a serious underlying medical (e.g. terminal conditions like cancer), psychological or psychiatric condition then please consult your doctor/physician before undertaking any of our plans. The advice may not be suitable for you in those cases.

Please read our health policy for full details.

The 100-Day Online Plan

In order to make the most of our features and succeed at achieving your goals, we require people who join The 100-Day Plan to stay committed the whole way. Therefore we take a single up front payment of only £39 (!) for the full plan.

What’s the catch!? There is no catch but our specialists feel strongly that affordable, high-quality care should be available to everyone and not just a select few.

After 100 days all members automatically go on the Membership plan in order to have continued access to our features and support systems. This is also known as the “maintenance” phase of weight management. It is really important to prevent weight regain and going back to old habits which can leave you feeling like you’ve failed. We don’t want you to end up at square one again so that’s why we offer ongoing membership and support.

After the 1st month if you don’t feel like carrying on then you can cancel your membership at any time!

Yes, under certain circumstances. Please see the “Membership & Cancellation” section below and read our cancellation policy for full details.

The 100-Day Online Plan is designed based on the 3 key pillars of weight management: diet, activity and the mind. In these 100 days our experts guide you through structured videos, articles and various interactive tasks.

We also offer an extensive online support structure via private forum, e-mail, social media and specialist webinars. Our aim is to help you achieve your goals and also improve happiness and quality of life.

Even better, you don’t have to travel anywhere to be part of our community!

For full details of the plan, please click here.

In addition to the 100-Day content designed by a team of medical specialists, we offer a variety of online support platforms for The 100-Day Online Plan including: The simplyweight forum (members only sections), e-mail support, regular webinars and social media. If you need assistance or have questions then please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Although it is a structured 100-Day Plan, we don’t throw complicated concepts at you every day! Our brains fail to retain a large chunk of what we learn the first or even second time. Therefore we reinforced our important concepts through repetition until it’s stored safely in your long-term memory.

We encourage you to see simplyweight as another part of your life. Adopting our techniques into your daily life will not only help you become healthier and happier but you won’t ever feel like it’s extra “work”. It may feel challenging at first to break and form habits but if you stick with it you will certainly see the results!

While our 100-Day Plan has online features, all of our tutorials and activities involve your full participation in daily life. In the end, someone can join an intensive 1-2-1 plan but their success depends on their commitment. What we can assure you is, if you follow the plan sincerely, you will definitely see positive results in 100-Days! 

Parts of the plan are completely personalised. For example, the portions allotted depend on your height, weight, age and sex. In addition, our medical experts will regularly provide you with support and answer questions via our forum & webinars.

However, if you feel like you need more personal support but are unable to come to our clinics, you can join our Virtual Doctor online package.

While it is possible to lose a significant amount of weight early in your plan, we recommend losing 1lb to 2lbs (0.5kg to 1kg) per week as a safe level of weight loss. The weight loss experienced depends on several factors including your basal metabolic rate, medical problems, activity, starting weight and medications.

Therefore our recommended weight loss for 100 days will be different to your final goal weight. You can continue towards your goal on the Membership plan and set new goals whenever needed.

Consultations

Before joining any specialist plan you have an initial consultation with one of our doctors. During this consultation you will be holistically evaluated to determine the underlying cause of weight gain.  This will include physical examination, body composition analysis and investigation into your medical background, social life, childhood and previous weight loss attempts.

Weight management consultations last approximately 1 hour. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before your slot.

We will send over a clinic letter to your GP with all the details of the consultation. Our specialist team will put together a bespoke 12-week plan to suit your individual needs. However there is no obligation for you to join a plan after your consultation!

We understand that circumstances change and you may not be able to make your appointment. Full refunds are available if you let us know 48 hours before your appointment time. Unfortunately as we have to make arrangements and book rooms beforehand, we cannot offer refunds for cancellations made within 48 hours. For full details please see our cancellation policy.

Our clinics are currently based in London, Leeds, Sheffield and Bradford, United Kingdom. Due to increased demand we will shortly be opening clinics across the U.K and overseas. For more details please click here.

If you’ve already had investigations done please bring the results with you to your appointment. If during the consultation you require additional tests, the doctor will let you know how to get them arranged.

The 12-Week Specialist Plans

The cost of our 12-week plan depends on your individual needs which will be assessed in an initial consultation with a medical specialist. We not only help you lose weight but also help treat weight-related medical conditions. In some cases this may involve extensive investigations or additional support which would add to the cost of the plan.

If you would like to book a consultation at one of our clinics please contact us.

You will get a fully structured plan designed by medical specialists that will be intensive from day 1! We provide you with a lot of information and understand that this can be tricky to take in. This is why your plan includes interim follow-ups with our medical specialists who will evaluate your progress but also address any weight-related medical conditions.

On top of this you will be provided with access to the 100-Day Online Plan and ongoing 1-2-1 support from our team via Whatsapp, Zoom and other online platforms.

We encourage you to see simplyweight as another part of your life. Adopting our techniques into your daily life will not only help you become healthier and happier but you won’t ever feel like it’s extra “work”. It may feel challenging at first to break and form habits but if you stick with it you will certainly see the results!

Yes, our 12-week medical weight loss plan includes addressing weight-related medical conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, PCOS, Infertility, Fatty Liver and more.

Don’t worry – your simplyweight plan doesn’t need to end after 12 weeks! If you feel like you need ongoing support you can join our maintenance plan. You can stay on this plan for as long as you need to feel confident that you can manage your weight independently.

Online Membership & Cancellation

Well, simplyweight registration is free. However to join The 100-Day Plan you will need to select the plan and pay £39 up-front. You can pay using the following credit and debit cards: Delta, Solo, Maestro, Switch, Mastercard and Visa. All transactions will be processed through worldpay, which is a secure payment gateway. 

This follows onto the Membership plan which is on a monthly basis.

After the initial 100-Day Plan many people like continued support. Therefore your membership will continue onto the simplyweight membership plan automatically, debiting the agreed subscription fee each month from your card. The date of your first membership plan payment will be on the 100th and final day of your 100-Day online plan.

After the 1st month of membership you can cancel at any time by emailing us at hello@simplyweight.co.uk.

If you join the 100-Day Plan, you have a short “cooling off period” when you have the right to cancel your membership. This right finishes 14 days after enrolling (having not started using the service by entering/uploading any details in your dashboard, i.e. using the simpodium, simportion, simaktiv and simhappy pages) – whichever occurs soonest.

For full details please read our cancellation policy.

Weight Loss Medications

Yes, we offer a separate 12-week plan just for medications. Currently we offer Saxenda, Mysimba & Orlistat packages. Each 12-week medication plan comes with the medication itself, support in using it and making appropriate lifestyle changes to ensure successful weight loss. Each medication package has an intensive support option as an add-on and offers maintenance following the 12-weeks. For more details please contact us at hello@simplyweight.co.uk

Yes, we do support people with weight loss medications if required after a thorough clinical assessment. Our doctors only prescribe medications licenced in the UK, which includes Saxenda, Mysimba and orlistat.

Research has shown that weight loss medications are effective only when supported by a team who help you make appropriate life style changes and take care of potential side effects. Moreover people who stop medications after some time are more likely to regain weight. This is why we require you to be part of our 12-week weight loss plan if you intend to use any medications.

Before you start the plan, you will be provided with all the information about the medication you have been prescribed including potential side effects. As you will be on a weight loss plan you will be supported and will be able to contact us if you feel you’re experiencing any side effects.

If you do have serious side effects you should go to see your doctor in person or the nearest accident and emergency department. If the side effects are mild, please contact us on hello@simplyweight.co.uk and our doctors will advise you accordingly.

The level of support provided will be based on the initial assessment by our specialists. During the 12-week plan the underlying cause for weight gain will be assessed and remedial measures incorporated whilst you are taking the medications. Each medication plan offers an intensive support option. In this option, you will receive the full benefit of the standard 12-week weight loss plan in addition to your medication. This includes addressing your hunger pattern, portion size and emotional eating amongst many other issues.

Saxenda works similar to an appetite regulating hormone that the body produces naturally, known as Glucagon-Like-Peptide (GLP-1). Saxenda is the trade name for the generic drug Liraglutide, which has been used for the management for Type 2 diabetes for more than 10 years. It works by activating areas of the brain that regulate appetite, thereby make you feel less hungry.

Research shows that Saxenda is effective only if supported by long-term lifestyle changes.

Mysimba is a tablet which contains two medicines: bupropion and naltrexone. Both these medications work on the reward pathway of the brain and controls hunger and craving.

Saxenda is an injection, which contains the medicine Liraglutide, which is hormone and controls appetite and makes you feel full.
