LifeShape Clinic’s weight loss programs are medically supervised to help you lose weight at a safe and sustainable rate. As you approach your goal weight, we’ll teach you how to maintain your healthy weight for life – so you can focus on living, not ‘dieting’.
Every week you’ll have a one-on-one consultation with either a Dietitian, an Exercise Physiologist, a Psychologist or a Doctor. This personalised approach means you receive weight loss advice that is tailored to your needs. Here are some common questions about the LifeShape Program.
How long are the programs?
Our Clinic offers programs that can target weight loss between 5kgs and 50kgs. The shortest program is 12 weeks, and the longest is 12 months. Each program consists of an active weight loss phase and a maintenance phase based on a sustainable balanced diet. Clients on our 12 month program lose an average of 7.9kg in the first month, & up to 19kg in six months (your individual results may vary).

Can you tell me more about dietary replacements?
LifeShape Clinic have their own comprehensive range of meal replacements as part of their programs. LifeShape LED™ is a nutritionally complete meal replacement designed in conjunction with our medical team. The range provides all of the protein, carbohydrate, fat, vitamins and minerals you need as part of your LifeShape meal plan and comes in a range of bars, shakes and soups.
If you prefer not to use dietary replacements, our Dietitians can design you a personalised meal plan to ensure that you are enjoying a balanced diet during weight loss.
I am considering bariatric surgery, can your programs help me?
Australia’s most credible guidelines from the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) state that no one should consider bariatric surgery without first undergoing a comprehensive lifestyle and behaviour modification program. We can help you make healthy lifestyle changes in a tailored plan for long term health and weight loss with results equal to bariatric surgery.
