how can this help you to lose weight?
Say goodbye to cravings & hunger without starving yourself!
The majority of diets (over 65%) fail because people still feel hungry - you're forcing yourself to starve your body of what it is craving and what it wants.
It is a synthetic hormone regulating the body's natural hunger hormone, GLP-1. The release of GLP-1 acts on the receptors in the appetite-control section of the brain, reducing your appetite. It slows down gastric emptying, keeping you fuller for longer which further reduces your appetite.
It also helps your pancreas release just the correct amount of insulin to deal with your body's glucogon, meaning it works differently for each person's individual needs. This allows sugars and carbs to be broken down in an effective way without causing a "sugar crash", which therefore avoids those quick-fix sugary cravings and a hunger for carbs. It also helps reduce leptin levels, which is a key hormone in causing a metabolism slow-down.
Reduce your portion sizes
When you diet, your appetite does not shrink to match the dietary requirements. Portion control has a major impact on the ability of a person to effectively lose weight. With a suppressed appetite, you will naturally start eating smaller portions. Your stomach will start to shrink, effectively reducing the amount of food required to fill your stomach and the amount of food needed to appease your appetite.
Incorporate light exercise
Once you're comfortable with the dietary side of things, you can begin to incorporate exercise into the programme. We offer a range of quick, simple home-based workout programmes and an exercise crib sheet to help you burn off hose calories.
We want to help you develop healthier habits
The Slim Transformation® programme is not just a quick-fix. It comprises of a holistic approach including nutrition & exercise. This is so that once you finish the programme, you can keep the weight off naturally with healthy eating & light to moderate exercise.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How does the medication of Slim Transformation® work?
This section is for information purposes. The daily jab (Saxenda / Liraglutide), weekly jab (Ozempic / Semaglutide) or daily tablet (Rybelsus / Semaglutide) all work in very similar ways. The major difference is that the weekly jab is a slow-release version of the daily jab & tab.
Produced by Novo Nordisk, the medication mimics a natural hormone already found in your body (GLP-1). It works in three key ways to reduce your appetite.
It blocks a key hunger hormone telling your brain that you are hungry, whilst also helping to reduce leptin resistance (a hormone which can help off-set weight gain by increasing satiety aka fullness, and speed up your metabolism to help regulate the levels of fatty tissue in your body). This also helps stop the weight from coming straight back on when you stop the jab.
It slows down the gastric emptying process, meaning that your body takes longer to process food and it is fuller for longer. This means your body does not need as much intake as normal as it works off the food it has.
The medication helps to speed up your metabolism and increase fat burning by reducing glucogen & reducing insulin resistance. This promotes normal blood glucose levels, the liver metabolism of glucose and helps adipose tissue burn fat in a safe and controlled method without causing a sugar-crash. This avoids the urges for quick-fix sugary foods.
This all helps to reduce the risk of the so-called "starvation mode" and other side effects like ketoacidosis, as you will be burning off a mixture of stored carbs & fats.
Unlike fad diets which tend to starve the body when it's shouting out for food, the medication reduces your body's desire to get more food, which makes it easier to make healthier choices and to reduce calories. It also stops leptin levels from rising due to "starvation". Low leptin levels can cause increased hunger & a slower metabolism!
This means that when you stop using the medication, the body isn't desperate for sustenance and therefore, you won't suddenly begin storing fat and gain all the weight back. Ironically, it's a more natural way to lose the weight and keep it off.
For further clinical information & data, please see the Novo Nordisk website.
How much can I expect to lose?
The average weight loss per person is always different. Clinical trials for all 3 types of the medication have shown a range of weight loss between 8lbs and 19lbs.
In the latest Semaglutide study released in February 2021, 75% of participants lost 10% of their body weight. During clinical trials for Liraglutide, 80% of those who used Saxenda kept the weight for over a year.
The key is not to compare yourself to others losing weight - focus on yourself, your goals and your progress. Every person is different.

Who is the Slim Transformation® programme suitable for?
The programme is suitable for the vast majority of people. Our medically trained clinicians will assess you on an individual basis.
The medication can be used for those who are overweight but our clinicians take into account a range of factors to ensure this is the right move for you.
We look at several factors to ensure suitability, including:
Your medical history
Your current medication
Current diet & eating habits
Current exercise levels
Other methods you have already tried
The programme is NOT suitable for:
Ladies who are breastfeeding or pregnant or actively trying to get pregnant.
Anyone who has had pancreatitis or thyroid tumours
Type 1 diabetics or patients taking diabetic medication
Can I drink alcohol whilst on the programme?
Although alcohol does not directly interact with the medication, we do advise people to avoid alcohol if possible. Research has shown that alcohol mixed with Saxenda may put extra strain on your liver and it may affect your blood sugar levels. If you do have a drink whilst using the pen, do not drink on an empty stomach & limit it to 1 small glass of wine or one 25ml spirit with a light mixer. Alcohol is also empty calories and may reduce the potential achievable weight loss.
Will you guarantee my weight loss?
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee anything in life. We cannot give an absolute guarantee because everyone is different, however, our in-house audit of clients indicates that 98.5% of clients achieve a minimum weight loss of 6 lbs in 3 weeks, with an average weight loss of 13.7lbs over 4 weeks.
What are the potential side effects?
Like any medication, there are the risks of side effects. The most common side effects are transient - this means that they only last for a couple of days whilst your body adjusts to the medication. 40-60% of clients experience no side effects, whilst others experience one or two mild side effects e.g. a dry mouth or a mild headache. Our medical clinicians will advise you on how to deal with any side effects you may experience whilst you will be provided with an aftercare leaflet on how to deal with the most common side effects. You also receive a Patient Information Leaflet detailing the ins & outs of the medication.
Do I need to see a doctor before starting this programme?
No. You do not need to see your doctor or inform them of your participation in the programme if you do not want to. However, if we feel that it would be prudent to do so, we will advise you to inform your GP or we can write to them on your behalf. We will never jeopardise your health and will endeavour to provide you with a safe and effective service.
Has this programme been around for long?
The daily jab has been around since 2009, before becoming re-licensed for weight loss in January 2017. Members of our team helped establish, run and expand the original SkinnyJab weight loss programme. We since branched off to create a more holistic and sustainable weight loss programme. We have used client feedback to adapt and grow our own programme to provide effective yet safe weight loss. This is how we have come to offer the weekly jab, daily tablet and a constantly updated aftercare plan.
What kind of after care can I expect?
You will receive aftercare literature, covering the medication to side effects to how to use the pen. You will receive 8 weeks worth of meal plans alongside access to our Facebook Support Group & online Members Area.
We will regularly follow you up via email, text and phone calls. Our team are available 7 days a week via telephone or email or text. We are also contactable by multiple social media platforms (WhatsApp, FaceTime, Instagram & Facebook).
We know what it is like trying to lose weight - it can be scary, it can be hard, it can sometimes seem impossible - so we welcome our clients to contact us even for the slightest concern. We are here to ensure your journey with us is as smooth as possible.

No. Whilst weight loss clinics are required to be CQC registered, we do not have a physical location for any clinics. We do not treat obesity as a disease; we enable weight loss for aesthetic / cosmetic / personal reasons. We use UK based pharmacists who are not required to register.
Do you have a Distance Selling Logo?
No. As of 1st January 2021, websites selling Prescription-Only Medicines can no longer and are no longer required to display the little green & white Distance Selling Logo, as this was an EU mandate, not a UK one. A UK version is in the pipeline.
Are you ASA compliant?
Yes. We liaised directly with the ASA on making sure our website and social media pages were fully compliant with all UK regulations.
What is the difference between Off-Licence & Off-Label?
No. Only Liraglutide is licensed for weight loss, whereas Semaglutide is licensed only for diabetes. To get a medicine license, a medication goes through rigorous testing & clinical trials. It is then granted a license for a specific purpose by the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Authority (MHRA) for the UK. The license will include information on what the medicine is for, who the medicine is for and the parameters in which it can be used.
Prescribing Off-Licence means prescribing the medication outside of the licence's parameters.
Prescribing Off-Label means prescribing a drug for a different purpose than what it is licensed for.
For example, Semaglutide is currently licensed for diabetes but can be prescribed for weight loss if a person is deemed safe & suitable, it is clinically justifiable & reasonable, and you are made fully aware of the pros & cons alongside the fact that it is unlicensed for weight loss.
Are all your products licensed for weight loss?
No. Only Liraglutide is licensed for weight loss, whereas Semaglutide is licensed only for diabetes. Please contact us if you would like more information regarding this or information on the current clinical trials of Semaglutide for weight loss.
