Weight Loss & Management Programmes
Medfit has brought together a team of weight loss experts with over 15 years experience of delivering successful realistic and sustainable weight loss, achieving major health benefits for our clients. The team is led by Professor Carel Le Roux, a recognised expert in this field.
Our academic and clinical experience has taught us that there are no quick fixes when it comes to losing weight. Our research as a team has shown there is no one established solution for successful long-term weight loss to fit all patients. No two clients are the same and thus a personalised approach based on the best medical evidence available is required.
Who is it for?
We work with all those looking to lose weight and will identify the programme most suitable to you at your initial consultation. Our approach is to provide special- ised weight loss and management solutions tailored specifically to your individual needs by working with you to identify your health goals. Our focus across all our programmes is on achieving sustained weight loss to bring significant health benefits and improve your quality of life.
What is involved?
You will be assessed by our multi-disciplinary team which is led by Professor Carel Le Roux. This will involve a medical and weight history assessment incorporating the Kings Obesity Staging Criteria, a clinical tool which helps identify and measure changes in health outcomes related to obesity.
You will then be given a personalised programme designed to achieve and maintain weight loss by decreased caloric intake, behaviour modification and increased physical activity. Long-term weight maintenance can be supported with the addition of other treatments such as exercise, pharmacotherapy, medical devices or surgery. All the approaches are based on evidence from large multina- tional studies to bring cutting edge scientific evidence to the clinical environment.
Why should I do the programme?
We know that for people to lose weight and maintain weight loss, regular support from a specialised multi-disci- plinary team is what is needed. Our research as a team has shown there is no one established solution for success- ful long-term weight loss to fit all patients. We will do everything we can to give you a personalised care plan to help optimise your health outcomes and offer continued support in the long-term.
How much does it cost?
An initial clinical assessment with our Dietitian or Nutritionist costs €120 and determines the most suitable weight loss & management programme for you. If you are suitable for the physician led programme the first phase of this programme runs for between 4 to 8 weeks and costs €550.

“Under the guidance and careful supervision of Professor Carel le Roux I underwent bariatric surgery including pre and post operative exercise plans. It was very reassuring to have all aspects of care handled by one expert team who have been both discreet and supportive during the process”
