What is Alevere Therapy?
Alevere Therapy is a safe way to lose a lot of weight and get a better body shape. It has been developed by doctors and there are two parts to it: one is a diet that triggers weight loss, the other is body shaping so you will not be left with loose skin or lumps and bumps caused by stubborn areas of fat. Our patients are genuinely transformed and you can see the results in our all our before and after shots.
What will I be eating on the programme?
You will be eating a lot, and probably more often than before. In fact, some patients tell us they find it difficult to fit in all the food they are meant to eat in a day!
The diet part of Alevere Therapy is in three stages. In the first stage you will eat five Alevere nutritional products each day. These are protein-based and come in a range of savoury and sweet flavours, and you will be able to create tasty, satisfying meals from them. On top of those, you will eat unlimited quantities of a range of fruit and vegetables.
After the first stage, which is when you will lose most of your weight, we will help you gradually introduce other foods back into your daily diet.
Will Alevere Therapy fit in with my lifestyle?
Yes, the diet will fit into your life. Although there is never an absolutely ideal time to begin to transform yourself – there is always a birthday, a wedding, a family event coming up – you will find that Alevere is hassle-free. The food is easy to prepare and there are shakes you can carry around with you. By joining the Alevere programme you will receive access to all our tasty recipes.
Will I feel hungry on the Alevere programme?
No. You will not feel hungry, weak or tired while on Alevere Therapy. You will be able to function as you normally do and you will have the energy to exercise. The diet will also stabilise your blood sugar levels so you will not have cravings. Most patients tell us they feel better than normal while on Alevere Therapy.
How fast will I start to lose the weight?
We aim for a monthly loss of 6-12kg (13-26 lbs) for patients, however results will vary between each individual client.
Why do I need to have the treatments as well as being on the diet?
Because losing weight does not automatically mean you will be left with the great body shape you want – so we shape it for you. We make sure you lose inches in the places you want, as well as losing weight overall, and we tighten and firm your skin*.
We achieve this in two ways: Firstly, we use state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to break down those stubborn fat deposits under your skin. This is a really important treatment because dieting alone often won’t shift these thick stores of fat. If they were to stay, you could still be unhappy with your figure even after losing all the weight*.
Then, we make your skin contract as you lose weight by tightening and firming it all over, using technology that stimulates it to make collagen and elastic fibres. This treatment also smooths out bumpy and uneven skin and improves your lymphatic drainage, so that your body more easily removes the fat broken down by the ultrasound*
How much will the Alevere programme cost me?
The cost is very variable and depends on the personal treatment programme written for you. The cost will vary according to how much weight you have to lose and the speed at which we calculate you will lose it. Please contact us to discuss your personal needs and we will be pleased to give you an individual estimate of cost without any obligation.
Why is the Alevere programme better than other diets?
All diets will make you lose weight – for a while. A crash diet will work, but as you starve yourself your body reduces your metabolic rate as a survival mechanism, so losing becomes harder and harder. Also on a crash diet, your body will break down muscle tissue, which is the very opposite of what you want and will leave you weak and unhealthy. Eventually, you will give up.
Slower diets work too – but slow is the key word here. If you have a lot of weight to lose, it takes an extraordinary amount of willpower, stamina and patience to keep dieting for as long as it is going to take. Most people don’t manage it.
Alevere Therapy is different. It allows you to lose weight predictably without losing muscle or slowing down your metabolic rate*. Basically, we can get you out of that exhausting pattern of yo-yo dieting. And we reshape your new body too*.
Will I start to regain weight again once I stop the diet?
We will have achieved nothing if you regain weight so the most important part of our diet is the stabilisation and maintenance treatment.
Crucially, we measure your individual metabolic rate once you are at your new weight with specialised medical equipment, then we tell you exactly what you can eat and how much, based on that specific measurement. And we don’t just leave you to get on with it, we arrange monthly follow-up care*.
And don’t forget that your new weight and body shape will also be a great motivator. You will love slipping into those clothes you could not have imagined wearing before because patients find that Alevere Therapy transforms their body in a way they just did not think was possible*.
What aftercare and support do you offer?
We will be there to support you, but as well as us, there is a patient support group which members tell us they love. You can speak to fellow Alevere Therapy patients on there to get advice, recipe ideas, and tips – anything you like.
Once you complete your weight loss goals you can visit us each month for a free weight in and consultation with a therapist to ensure the weight is not going back on. You can do this for up to a year after you finish.
Would I be better off having surgery instead of doing the Alevere programme?
We don’t think so. Surgery, in our opinion, is much more expensive, invasive, unpleasant, risky and doesn’t always work. Gastric banding, ballooning, and gastric bypass surgery can cause nasty side effects like bloating, nausea, stomach pain and bowel upsets. They can even mean that you don’t get enough nutrition, which could be disastrous.
What do I need to do next?
Just get in touch, either by phone or email. If you want a no-commitment look around our clinic to see the facilities, have the therapy explained and maybe chat to patients already on it, that’s fine. We will arrange it.
If you then decide to go ahead, you will have an hour-long consultation with one of our doctors and some tests and investigations will be carried out – including blood tests, body measurements and metabolic rate.
Once the results are through, which is usually within 48 hours, you can start treatment – and you are on the fast track to a new you.
