How to Lose Weight

How to Lose Weight – Medical Evaluation

Due to the ongoing obesity pandemic, many individuals are falling into Metabolic or Frailty syndromes. These groups typically find it difficult to lose weight and improve body composition. These conditions may to various degrees be affected by imbalances in the endocrine system associated with aging or poor lifestyle. Reducing body fat and visceral fat in these groups is essential for preventing inevitable health issues; however achieving the desired result can require a more complete picture with regard the state of the individual’s biochemical  and endocrinology  status.

Hence the onset of andro pause in men and menopause in women can have significant effects on the individual’s metabolism and one’s ability to lose weight and improve lean tissue. Where individuals are not responding to appropriate levels of exercise nutrition and recovery, a blood test carried out by our nurse and analysed by a medical doctor or endocrinologist can allow for a more precise course of action.

Andropause or male menopause, sometimes colloquially called “man-opause”, is a name that has been given to a menopause-like condition in aging men. This relates to the slow but steady reduction of the production of the hormones testosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone in middle-aged men, and the consequences of that reduction, which can be a significant reduction in muscle and severe slowing of the individuals basal metabolic rate.

Unlike women, middle-aged men do not experience a complete and permanent physiological shutting down of the reproductive system as a normal event. A steady decline in testosterone levels with age (in both men and women) is well documented and plays a key role in determining exercise intensity due to the susceptibility to cortisol,

Unlike “menopause”, the word “andropause” is not currently recognized by the World Health Organization and its ICD-10 medical classification. This is likely because “andropause” is a term of convenience describing the stage of life when symptoms of aging appear in men. While the words are sometimes used interchangeably, hypogonadism is a deficiency state in which the hormone testosterone goes below the normal range for even an aging male.

Hormonal variations associated with pre menopause right through to post menopause will tend to have very significant effects upon a woman’s body composition and metabolism.  This in turn can affect their ability to burn fat and maintain lean tissue. Another issue for many women especially as they age is an under active thyroid (hypothyroidism). Keeping track of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and t4 levels can play an essential role in enabling the individual to improve body composition and metabolism.

By evaluating the person’s biochemical endocrinology and hematology state we can take a very precise course of action to allow the individual to make positive changes to their physical make up.

What Our Clients Say:

"Walking out of New You approx. 14 weeks later was easy. The whole world seemed different, I weighed 60lbs less, I was lighter on my feet having much more energy. Weighing 13 stone 5lbs with a 37.5 inch waist, felt great. Having lots more muscle tone, that felt even better. I am now significantly stronger tighter and fitter than ever before."

David Kiely

"After 12 weeks of 6am starts, constant attention from John, good pains and a well-balanced diet... I love what I have become. I couldn't believe that I fitted back into my leather trousers that I couldn't pull up above my knees. And boy do they fit well! I suppose losing 12 kg of body fat and over 8 inches from my waist whilst gaining nearly 2 kg of muscle had to make a difference. "


"Its nearly 11 months since I started with New You. I haven’t put any weight back on, in fact I have continued to get considerably leaner lighter stronger and fitter.* I weigh just over 13 stone, my body fat is now under 15% which makes me pretty athletic, my waist is down to 32 inches and my lean tissue has continued to improve."

Colin Duffy

"Walking through the doors of NEW YOU for the first time was extremely difficult. At 55-years of age I had very little confidence and low self esteem. Twelve weeks later I walked out of NEW YOU a completely different person. I had dropped 37lbs of body fat, which meant I had gone from just over 11 stone to 8 and a half stone."


"I would like to thank my trainer and the medical support from New You and all the team who took a keen interest in my results. Also a special thanks to my mother Christine who got me started and supported me all the way. I have to say that one of the life changing moments I have had besides everything else… is to be able to buy clothes off the peg."
