So the question asked was. How does a person who uses a wheelchair lose weight? The good news is that they can lose their excess weight in exactly the same way as anybody else. It really does not matter if a person has a disability, or not, the approach to achieving a Permanent Weight Loss is the same. The only criteria required for a successful outcome is having the desire, along with a strong motivation to succeed. So weight loss for those with disabilities is achievable.
How a Wheelchair User can Lose Weight
I think it would be patronising to readers of this page to detail just why a wheelchair user is more prone to weight gain than a person without disabilities. You know all the issues: like others, you are just looking for a proven solution. Marion and I have worked in the weight loss arena for over 15 years. We have treated over a thousand clients from around the world and accumulated over 15,000 hours of 1:1 treatment time. I was one of the first verified case studies, as you can see below. I lost over 80 pounds. Visit welcome to My Weigh Less for more info.
Weight Loss For Wheelchair Users
We believe that one of the reasons our program has proven so popular is the fact that it’s completely downloadable. Clients can complete the course at home on any device they wish, mobile phone, tablet, or Desk Top Computer. There are no meetings to attend, and no embarrassing communal weigh-ins. Our weight loss solution is non-surgical and does not involve exercise. The treatment profile is based around psychology, and it provides each client with a polarised weight loss experience.
Psychology is the Key
So how does this treatment work? Basically, over twelve, one-hour sessions, we will strive to permanently change your relationship with food. A big claim, yes it is, but one based on an awful lot of experience. Our youngest client was just fourteen years of age, our oldest was eighty six. Some wanted to lose just a few pounds to get into their wedding dress. Others, like Sarah Hart, who has appeared on TV around the world, went on to lose an incredible 140 pounds, half her body weight.
How Does It Work?
So just what do we do? A Psychological Reset. You see it’s a fact that no child is born obese; eating for reasons other than hunger is a learned behaviour. We will ask you. Do you eat when you are Bored, Upset, Lonely, Angry, Depressed, Tired, Anxious, in Secret, watching TV, or maybe to please someone else? Then we reset it. After the treatment you will eat when you are physically hungry, and stop when you are not. Visit Obesity and Weight Lossfor additional information.
Weight Loss For Wheelchair Users
The treatment as you can read on the pages of the dedicated website is based around the most scientifically researched therapy in the world, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). However, early in the development phase, we became aware that in the arena of weight loss, an upgrade of CBT was required. We went on to develop an enhanced version of CBT, called TCBT. Our published work on the therapy has gained endorsements by Professor Windy Dryden, of Goldsmiths University, London, and Professor Philip Zimbardo, of Stanford University in San Francisco.
How To Lose Weight Fast
How to lose weight fast is a very common search phrase with search engines. In all honesty, people ask us the same question all the time, regardless of whether someone is a wheelchair user or not. The My Weigh Less treatment will deliver a weight loss of around two pounds per week. It is true that in the first few weeks the weight loss may be slightly higher, but it will normally level out over few months at an average of two pounds per week. This is a safe, and more importantly, sustainable rate. We have a blog post that maybe of interest, around Losing Weight Without Exercise.

But Does It Work?
It is the most important question of all. On the website we have a dedicated ‘Does It work Page’ which we hope you will find both interesting and informative. Additionally, you will find a link to the ‘Medical Professionals’pages, which includes an endorsement of the effectiveness of the treatment by an NHS Consultant Surgeon, along with the opinions and observations of a number of other medical professionals. Also on the site, you can read a full breakdown of just what is included in the treatment package. You may also be interested in the Best Online Weight Loss Programpage.
You Can Achieve Your Desired Weight Loss….
We continue to be both disappointed and surprised by the lack of imagination and thought given to the wheelchair users amongst us, who need just as much, possibly even more support with their diet and weight loss aspirations as those without disabilities. Weight loss for persons with disabilities is no different than for those without disabilities, and in our experience, just as important, on a range of levels.

Our work has been featured in literally hundreds of newspapers and magazines, including The Times and Vogue Magazine. Our Success Stories are here
The Obesity Pandemic
It is a sad fact that our treatment provides a ‘Downstream’ fix to the global obesity problem. As is widely agreed, an ‘Upstream’ intervention is urgently required. Stopping people from initially gaining the weight should be the direction we go, rather than helping them lose the weight afterwards. This, of course, requires the involvement of both the Government and the major food producers on both sides of the Atlantic. Read about our Work at Elite Clinics.
