Are you over 40 and fed up with your weight?
Has your weight been going up since you turned 40 and you feel helpless with what to do about it?
Have you tried really hard to lose weight and then been bitterly disappointed when the scales barely budged?
Have you just become sick of depriving yourself on diets? (There comes a time when you just can’t take it any longer.)
If so, you’re in the right place.
A weight loss clinic for women over 40
My name is Dr Khandee Ahnaimugan.
I am a medically-qualified doctor and at my weight loss clinic in Harley Street, London, my focus is on helping women over 40 to achieve long-term weight loss.
My clients refer to visiting my clinic as their “last chance saloon”. They’ve almost given up hope and they’re totally fed up with struggling with their weight on their own.
You see, the truth is…
Dieting doesn’t work
If you’re over 40 and overweight, you’ve probably found it really difficult to lose weight by dieting. In fact that’s probably why you’re here.
Every day I meet women who tell me similar stories about diets and exercise programmes that might have worked in their twenties or thirties (but even then, the weight always came back) but as they got older it became harder and harder to lose weight.
Losing weight is different for women over 40
The fact is, because of metabolic and hormonal changes it is more difficult for a woman over 40 to lose weight.
So we need to take this into account.
As one of my clients said: “I realised that, at 45, I was still trying to lose weight like a 20-year-old.”
Dieting is short-term focused
The problem with dieting is that it relies on deprivation. And most people are (understandably) not willing to feel deprived for very long.
If you can only tolerate a diet for a few weeks, it’s NEVER going to be a long-term solution to your weight problems. Dieting is just a quick fix, that becomes less and less able to fix anything, as you get older.
And yet you’re probably still blaming yourself for not being able to succeed?
So what do you need to do differently?
You need to reprogramme your relationship with food.
We need to create a more natural, healthy lifestyle, based around changing behaviours and habits.
The behavioural approach includes:
- Adjusting the amounts and timing of meals (in a way that you don’t feel deprived)
- Modifying triggers that lead to unnecessary eating
- Reducing unhelpful responses e.g. emotional eating
- Learning how to deal with cravings and temptations
If you’ve ever thought that there is something wrong with the entire way you relate to food, then you’re right! And no diet will ever change that.
What you need is the guidance to identify where things are going wrong and how to change it. This is what I do.
A completely different approach to weight loss
With this approach, there are:
- No pills
- No supplements
- No surgery
- No calorie or point counting
- No packaged meals
- No deprivation diet regimes
Instead we are focused on changing your psychology, behaviour and habits for long-term, lasting weight control.
The long-term focus is crucial
If you need to lose weight by next week, then this programme is NOT for you.
Changing habits doesn’t happen overnight.
With my weight loss programme, after the initial consultation, we can meet every week, focusing on making lasting changes to your behaviour and habits.
Do you have lots of questions?
There is hope. There is a way to lose weight and keep it off, that doesn’t require dieting.
But you’ve probably still got a lot of questions. That’s good.
I’ve tried to answer a the most frequently asked questions on this page.
But to get the answers that relate directly to you and your unique situation the best way is to visit the clinic and see me for an assessment session.

“If, like me, you cannot face the cycle of losing weight and putting it back on ever again, I think it is essential to have someone like Dr K to support you and change your behaviour to a way of eating which you can stick with, and which is not so punishing that you can never eat any of your favourite foods again!
I have lost over a stone and am not only pleased about that, but, more importantly, think that I am now unlikely to put it back on again.”
