Testimonial from Scott for Tullia Law

Gastric Band Reviews by Scott.,
31 March 2012

After a number of years battling to loss weigh and trying almost every diet possible – weight watches, slim fast, atkins, lighter life and losing weight on a temporary basis, enough was enough. I was fortunate to have access to the funds to undergo gastric band surgery. I spent a few months looking into the process, what it takes along with risks and complications. I weighed up the pros and cons and the positives of surgery were far far better

I started researching on the internet looking into where to have the gastric band surgery  done but with London prices near on £8,000 - £10,000 it looked like I wouldn’t be having it done after all. I couldn’t afford that much. Then, one afternoon I came across these guys who could do surgery in Belgium. Don’t get me wrong, I was nervous as I have heard all the horrid stories of people going abroad for surgery and coming back unhappy and with surgery that was patch work but it was worth some research and I requested some details.

I spoke to Tulia she gave me all the information I needed including a number of testimonies of people who had surgery done along with phones numbers. I started doing what you are doing now; reading these blogs hoping it would answer all my questions.  It did! I spoke with Tulia near on every day for 2 weeks to answer all my questions help me arrange dates etc and she was ideal.

I decided to do it. I was ready to book but hold on, the money is needed upfront – alarm bells ring!  Do not panic. It was fine, I sent them the money and things went quite for a few days. Chris, the aftercare manager rung a week before and asked for my euro star confirmation and he would sort everything. And 1 day before traveling I had everything I needed, a schedule of times, locations, the pre-diet ect. It was spot on!

I got on the euro star already to go. Got to Lille and the taxi was waiting. From start to finish the service was spot on. The day of surgery there was no hanging around - Straight down for surgery. Chris the aftercare manager came to my hotel before traveling home to check me over – how’s that for service!

I could not recommend these guys enough. The doctor and all people involved are super and their English is better than mine!

I had my first 3ml fill 2 days ago and so far I have lost a stone in around 3-4 weeks!  The fill was pain free, odd feeling to be honest but no pain. I went to their new offices in London, close to Harley street and was there less than 15mins. I saw the doctor who did my surgery and Chris the after care manager was also there again.

I have had a number of conversations / emails with Chris and directly with the doctor since. Whenever I have a question even at 10pm, they are always just a phone call away.

What are you waiting for, book it and enjoy life without battling a weight problem.

All the best………

Is it Best to Eat Low Fat or Low Carb?

An examination of the differences between low carb and low fat plans.

For a year two sets of one hundred people went on one of two diets: a low carbohydrate diet or a low fat diet. Following a year, the people in the sets had congruent success with weight loss, however the low carb set also lowered their HDL-cholesterol rates and had lowered their systolic blood pressure significantly compared with the low fat set. So the low carb group experienced some health benefits along with weight loss.

It is Easy to Follow Low Carb Diet During the Week

I really like the way my body looks while eating low carb. I also felt better on the low carb plan. I am more vigorous and get more done. During the week, I follow my low carb diet. Because you do not experience the intense desire to eat that you do on higher carbohydrate plans, this dieting style lends itself perfectly to the Eat Stop Eat dieting style.

Take It Easy On the Weekends

I'm a social guy, so I do like to enjoy time with family and friends on the weekend. The challenge is that much of this time involves being around food that isn't low carb. It's perfectly normal to take in a few carbs on the weekend. I attempt to eat more greens and lean meats but I cannot tell you that I am able to do this at every meal. Nachos and beer are evil and they throw me right off the low carb dieting style.

It's Possible to Have a Low Carb and Low Fat Diet Simultaneously

If you want to lose weight within a couple of weeks and need the most efficient diet, eat calorie-light proteins and stay off the carbs like you normally do. For 1-2 weeks (no longer than that) you can create a large calorie deficit by avoiding fat calories as well as carb calories. Chicken and greens are fantastic ways to stay low carb as well as low fat. This is what I would call a "vacation prep" diet.

Most of the Time, It's Okay to Eat A Lot of Meat

When I eat on my own on a typical work day, I enjoy primal meals which are higher in protein and healthy fats while being low carb. It seems to be a good way to eat for me. If you maintain the diet but then take in carbs, they'll start making you fatigued. Use fruit and veggies instead of rice, break or potatoes as a wonderful side to your meal that doesn't add any carbs to your system. On the weekends I eat a little more traditional, trying to go low carb low fat, but often times doing high carb and high fat (which isn't good).

In short, you can lose weight easily by just finding simple methods of taking in less food. For me it is a combo of eating low carb during the week with two Eat Stop Eat style fasts, which allow me to eat more carbs and calories on the weekend.
