How do I know if I need to lose weight?
Obesity is a common problem in the UK; it affects approximately 1 in 4 adults, as well as 1 in 5 children aged 10-11. If you are ever looking to check whether your current weight is healthy, you are able to use a BMI calculator, such as the NHS one. Your results can be interpreted using the following criteria:
– For the majority of adults, a healthy weight is characterised by a BMI of 18.5-24.9.

– If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9, this suggests that you are overweight.

– A BMI of between 30-39.9 means that you are obese.

– Finally, a BMI of 40 or higher means that you are characterised as being severely obese.
Obesity can provoke incredibly serious health issues, such as coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. It can also have a knock on effect on your mental health and self-esteem.

Weight Loss Pen
A weight loss pen is a small, portable device that is pre-filled and ready for you to use at a time that is convenient for you. Although the pen is a prescription medicine, it is a user-friendly device that can be administered by yourself, in an area recommended by your healthcare provider. These include your abdomen or stomach area, your thigh, or your upper arm. However, it is important to remember that you should not insert your weight loss pen into a muscle or vein.
Moreover, the Weight Loss Pen does not act as a be-all-and-end-all, or an all-encompassing remedy. In order to see the full effects of your new healthy lifestyle, it should be used alongside a reduced calorie diet, along with an increase in physical activity. If you are looking to improve your quality of life, it is important to focus on the physical and mental benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
Who is eligible for a weight loss pen?
Ordinarily, a Saxenda Weight Management Pen such as ours is prescribed to those who meet a set of conditions that would render their weight to be of medical concern. These include:

– Those who have a BMI of greater than or equal to 27 and excessive weight.

– People who have weight-related medical problems or obesity, with a BMI of greater than or equal to 30.

– Children aged between 12 and 17, with a body weight that exceeds 60kg.
Dietary Plans
To go alongside your personalised lifestyle plan, we also offer options such as our total diet replacement plan to help you along your journey to a healthier you. We recommend visiting us so that we can advise you on how to incorporate our vitamins and additional lifestyle management products into your routine in a way that helps and benefits you.

In terms of adjusting to changes in your diet, there is a lot of flexibility when it comes to structure. We will work with you to find out what frequency is right for you. Swapping in sachets and vitamins where required will not replace, but will instead work alongside lifestyle changes in order to put you on the right track to making healthier choices for a healthier you.
