The Diet Clinic
During the modern day and age we live in, people tend to start moving back to natural products that help them lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle. Wanting to achieve this, they look for products that are natural and have no added hormones or chemicals. Products with no side effects. It is all about self-care, wellness, health, and finding natural products that say: “Live
well, be well, and your life will prosper”. No matter what era we find ourselves, many people are over-weight, unhealthy and some do not even know they are struggling with an illness inside of their bodies.
Many illnesses hide inside your body, showing no symptoms. Should the symptoms appear, it might be too late. Being over-weight or obese, you have an impaired lung function. This means, that your lungs need to work harder for your body to have enough oxygen. You then also have life-threatening issues and diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. These kind of illnesses affects both men and women of all ages. Having an unhealthy heart can, in the long run, lead to heart attacks, heart failure, coronary heart disease and strokes. Most of the time, this illness even affects their daily life and routine. They might feel that they have no energy to get them through the day. Some feel bloated all the time as if they have just eaten a huge meal. The only way for them to lead a happier, healthier life, is by having to make drastic changes, such as losing weight and eating healthier. Making these changes to their lifestyle, are not for the people around them, but for their own health. They need to start concentrating on creating a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE and not a short-term diet. Some Heart Foundation facts: 80% of heart disease and strokes can be prevented, 225 South Africans are killed by heart diseases daily, the number of deaths caused globally by high blood pressure is 13% and 10 people suffer a stroke in South Africa every hour.
“I have tried so many diet plans, and never stick to it. Because of this, I have always just dropped a few kilograms, and then just pick up what I have lost. With this Lifestyle Change of The Diet Clinic, it is different. In just 6 weeks I have lost 10 kilograms, and even centimeters. I am not exercising, but the weight just drops. I stick to the easy-to-follow meal plan that they provide. The support I get during this journey is wonderful. For the first time, I want to keep going and reach my goal weight. Thanks for helping me change my life”.

For the last 17 years, The Diet Clinic has been making use of natural products assisting in not only weight loss, but a healthy Lifestyle Change. Our products are all natural, homeopathic. Perfectly safe to use even if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or thyroid problems. Whether it is hypothyroidism (thyroid being underactive) or hyperthyroidism (thyroid being over-active). In some cases, the entire Thyroid gets removed, meaning that your body can no longer produce the Thyroid hormone. Then you will have symptoms of hypothyroidism. Symptoms include fatigue, feeling cold all the time, hair loss or
dryness, brittle nails, dry skin, slow heart rate and weight gain. No matter what your illness, our products have no side effects and are safe to use alongside your medication. Some people go through a few detox days, but once that is over, you will have more energy and feel less bloated. Our products speed up your metabolism and one is used, especially to break down stubborn fat.
Our meal plans consist of sugar free, low kilojoule, fiber rich, healthy foods. Food that is high in fiber, has been linked to a lower risk of not only heart disease but also diabetes. It helps lower bad cholesterol, lower blood sugar levels and helps maintain a healthy weight. By keeping your heart in a good and healthy condition, you need to cut back on calorie-dense foods loaded with fat, sugar and refined grains. You need to limit your salt intake, limit alcohol intake and try and exercise daily, even just walking.
Just by changing your eating habits, you can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Our meal plans guide you on how big your portion size should be. Never overload your plate or eat until you feel stuffed. By doing this you will eat more calories than you should. How much you eat is as important as what you eat. You need to make sure that you eat three meals per day. Use a smaller plate and eat more vegetables than protein. Vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals. They are also low in calories and rich in dietary fiber. Limit your intake of unhealthy fat. These are known as saturated and trans-fats. The amount of saturated fat intake daily, is not more than 11 to 13g. Eat lean meat, top a baked potato with low fat yogurt instead of sour cream or butter. You will not feel hungry all the time. We use good carbohydrates that will keep you feeling fuller for longer. The purpose of carbohydrates is to provide your body with energy.
Our Appetite Suppressant will even suppress your sugar cravings. By using our products and meal plans, you will easily lose as much as 10 kilograms in the first month. Once you have reached your goal weight, our maintenance plan will help you keep the weight off. No exercise is needed!!! We are here to even assist people with disabilities. Not being able to take part in sports or going to the gym. Our products and meal plans are designed for you too. But should you want to exercise, we recommend cardio exercises only for the first month. Weight training builds muscle mass, and you will be losing weight slower.
Even now during these unstable and unknown times called “lockdown”, we still need to stay healthy. We are home most of the time. Not moving much and not exercising like we use to. Maybe your tummy got a bit flabby. You picked up a few kilograms, and your clothes do not fit you anymore. Do not get demotivated. There is always time for a new beginning … new mind set … a new healthier you. We at The Diet Clinic are here to help you to get rid of that extra weight. Just think about it: “In less than a month you will be able to weigh even less than before the lockdown !!!”
Just imagine after using our products and meal plan, for only 4 weeks. Going through your cupboards and finding a pair of jeans that you were not able to wear for a few months. Fitting them, and WOW!!! They fit and look better than before!!!
Losing weight and changing your lifestyle is not easy. But we are here to help you gain confidence, and not weight. Offer a support system through your whole journey. Day by day you will feel and see your body changing.
Melissa Johnson -The Diet Clinic
This, proudly woman-owned franchise is based near the historic Main Mall. We have managed to successfully grow our clientele base, 30 loyal clients and counting, since our inception in May 2020. We help people feel confident and healthy in their bodies, advising and supporting them as part of a holistic healthy lifestyle management process. An experience with our franchise is simple but effective. To achieve your goal weight, we work with you to better understand your personal needs; no two clients are the same. We then share a meal plan to help maintain your calorie intake. The products given to clients are natural and work to help boost metabolism as well as suppress your appetite within reason.
Instructions are easy to follow. Clients are guided on use, effects in time against the agreed plan, and their experience throughout their journey with us. Our products and advisory is grounded on informed, researched safe and proven products and methodology. In my experience, our products work better the more weight you need to lose. For example: I am currently working with a client who weighs 230 kilograms. He needs to lose 140 kilograms to be considered healthy with the recommended Body Mass Index (BMI) for someone of his height and age. I have worked extensively with him to get deeper insight into his lifestyle and dietary habits. This has helped guide the weight loss programme designed for him. So far, with our weight loss programme, he has managed to lose 10 kilogram in the first month, in line with the weight and health milestones we set together, and yet ensuring he maintains an overall healthy, happy lifestyle. This loss has motivated him to start living a healthier life in other spheres of his life and sustainably so.
My franchise has grown in both reach and footprint. Now also serving the town of Ghanzi, with its own growing client base. We pride ourselves on professionalism and discretion. Much of why I believe we are seeing great success to date is twofold: a firm belief and appreciation of how the programme and products work, as well as my own personal confidence and experience with them. Using the products and undergoing the programme myself, I have comfortably lost 11 kilograms between March 2020 and
January 2021. And I am well on track towards achieving my goal weight by the end of 2021. Therefore, I confidently believe I can, continue to make a positive impact for other too.
It is not simply about shedding kilos; our biggest goal is for our clients to maintain a healthy weight and to keep healthy overall. Indeed, through a healthy lifestyle everybody can maintain their goal weight whilst still enjoying their meals. We have seen great success to date and look forward to continuing to build healthier lifestyle with our clients well into the future”.

42 years old, and since I can remember, I have battled with my weight. Looking for quick fixes and solutions. Some have worked, not for long, and other did not help at all. My story to investing in The Diet Clinic has two parts to it. I left the corporate world 5 years ago with the dream of owning my own business. For years I could not find anything that I was passionate about. Due to this, my weight kept getting worse. Comfort eating, snacking all day, eating take-out and overall un-healthy. I just could not find a solution that worked. The more this went on, the more I ate. Please note I also suffer from a thyroid condition. I thought, losing weight was not possible. By now, my weight reached 105kg. Triple digits, and depression really set in.
I managed to lose 6kg, but it took a very long time. My weight loss bounced up and down, and then stopped completely. I did some research and found Melissa from The Diet Clinic. I read up about the products they offered and decided to make a permanent change. In October 2020, I signed up to become a franchisee. Before starting to sell the products, I decided to try them and evaluate first-hand if the products work and if it is sustainable. WOW! That is all I can say. I tried the meal plan and products over the most difficult time. South Africa going through a pandemic, lockdown, Christmas. But above all this, I managed to lose weight!! YES! I lost weight and centimeters! Today I weigh 88.2kg and lost 40 centimeters. This journey was not easy. I deviated from the plan, but I get up again and carry on the next day. I am determined to continue. I am using Option 1 and can honestly say “I have never been happier, slimmer, healthier and it keeps getting better”.

“My daughter is currently on our Lifestyle Changing programme, making use of the Option month pack. Seeing amazing results herself, but even our clients are amazed at how much weight she has lost. She feels energetic and had no side effects. I recommend, as the franchisee, the Option 1 month pack. Looking at a cost perspective, we have other options to choose from.
The Diet Clinic is not about losing weight but a whole Lifestyle Change. A healthier you is a more productive, happier you.”

“I am healthier and happier since I started using The Diet Clinic’s products and meal plans. It works wonderfully. I went from a size 48 to a 36 and now a 34!! Even though I can not afford the products now with Covid and having less funds, I have managed to maintain my weight. I am following what the franchisee taught me during my appointments. I will, however, buy the products again as soon as I can go back to work”.
