Skinny Clinic is a revolutionary medically supervised weight loss and body transformation programme who claim to help clients lose an average 11-14 lbs in 3 weeks!
They are passionate about helping you to get healthy again and have their own loverly Nurse with over 27 years experience in the NHS. At the start of this collaboration, just like the normal routine with this treatment, I had a thorough consultation with the nurse so that when my pen arrived I was clear on what to do and how to use it.
So how does it work?
The Skinny Pen is a newly licensed pen for weight loss. It mimics the GLP-1 hormones which regulate appetite in the body. It keeps you feeling full and slows stomach emptying so calorie intake is massively reduced and this results in rapid weight loss. The nurse advised me that there can be side effects (just like other prescribed medication) these can include:
• Gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, stomach ache)
• Low blood sugar levels
Today I am beginning my treatment and I am set to take 0.6mg everyday for 30 days. You inject the pen yourself, each morning, either side of your belly button, alternating for each use. After three seconds you remove the pen and you will have successfully injected your dosage. I am really excited to give this a go but truthfully I was nervous before taking my first dose. This is a very different weight loss technique to any other I have tried before so with everything new you do have your initial doubts.
Skinny clinic do provide a meal guide but there is no specific diet plan that you have to follow whilst using the Skinny Pen, people have even said to have seen results without even changing their diet!
However, I am going to change my diet for this, but not drastically. I just feel I am now at the stage where I do really want to lose weight and become a lot healthier as at the moment I am on an ‘eat what you like diet’ and it is sure catching up with me.
Over the next 30 days I will share my journey with you including any exercise that I do and I will also be giving you a basic idea of the type of foods I am eating day to day so you will see true and honest results.
Below are my current measurements: I will update these on a weekly basis so you can see these results too.
