Obesity is a major global health challenge.

Obesity is associated with increased mortality and is a risk factor for the development of diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

Our response is based on a scientific approach.

For this reason, we have always made every effort to stay up to date with the latest scientific discoveries.


It is during the medical weight loss consultation that, in addition to encouraging healthy lifestyle habits, such as a balanced diet, regular exercise and daily water intake, we can also provide extra help.


With this we can increase your motivation and self-esteem, as you begin to see faster effects, but also sustained weight loss over time.

Losing weight and maintaining lost weight, in most cases, is a complex process.



In the medical weight loss consultation we have several therapeutic options.

Each of the options is discussed with the patient in consultation, after gathering the results of all exams and analyses, and choosing the options that best suit their objectives and in accordance with their medical and clinical history.

A structured eating plan and physical exercise are the basis for everyone;

Pharmacological therapy may also be prescribed in some cases;

Manipulated capsules, formulated specifically for you

Injectables, which reduce appetite

The introduction of a gastric balloon (which fills part of the gastric cavity and reduces appetite) is another possible technique in some cases;

Gastric Balloon without the need for surgery, anesthesia or endoscopy.

The balloon is swallowed by the patient and, subsequently, an x-ray is performed to see if the balloon is in good position. It lasts for around 4 months in the stomach, with losses of 10 – 15 kg or 10% of the patient's body weight.

The surgical approach is indicated for people with grade II obesity with comorbidities and a body mass index - BMI - greater than 35 or anyone with a BMI greater than 40;

The most common techniques used in bariatric surgery are gastric bypass and gastric sleeve.





When it comes to food, it matters not only what we eat, but also how, how much and when we eat!

Food is not seen as a diet, that is, it is not about starting a diet that has a beginning and an end, but rather promoting and instilling a sustainable eating style that lasts forever. It is a process that is naturally learned and integrated little by little.

It is therefore just as important to know what to eat (macronutrients, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, superfoods, etc.) as it is to know which foods and behaviors do not nourish us but, on the contrary, intoxicate, oxidize, inflame and age us.

With the information from the clinical evaluation and exams, an appropriate eating plan will be defined by our nutritionist.

Our nutritionist addresses a variety of health conditions, always focusing on promoting a healthy and balanced diet to improve patients' well-being.


The treatment of obesity is one of the main areas of activity for nutritionists.

Our nutritionist develops healthy eating plans and suggests lifestyle changes to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.


Nutrition plays a crucial role in controlling and preventing diabetes.

It is important to plan your meals and control your intake of carbohydrates, sugars and other nutrients in order to keep your blood glucose levels under control.

Cardiovascular diseases

Cardiovascular diseases, such as high blood pressure and hypercholesterolemia, are often related to diet.

Our nutritionist develops eating plans that promote heart health, reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Food Intolerances and Allergies

Our nutritionist helps you identify safe and nutritionally adequate foods.

Food intolerances, such as lactose intolerance or gluten intolerance, and food allergies, such as peanut allergy.

Eating disorders

It is crucial for a nutritionist to be involved in the treatment of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder, helping patients develop a healthy relationship with food and regain an appropriate eating pattern.





Carrying out regular physical activity is essential for our body to burn calories, and the ideal frequency is three to five times a week, alternating between aerobic exercise and weight training .

With aerobic exercises, we will work on your cardiorespiratory capacity, accelerate your metabolism and, consequently, increase energy and calorie expenditure, stimulating the weight loss process.

In anaerobic exercises, also known as hypertrophy or bodybuilding, we aim to increase your lean mass.

Nowadays we have an urgency to obtain results for everything , especially with the advancement and speed that technology gives us.

It is important to be aware that obstacles will arise over time, which will make you think about abandoning physical activities.

Let's set short-term goals that are challenging but also realistic.

We intend to stimulate your enthusiasm so that physical exercise becomes a habit, no longer a type of obligation, but becomes part of your routine.

With the information from the clinical evaluation and exams, an appropriate exercise plan will be defined.
