Dear JMO
I have not yet heard about the Eden Life Clinic. Perhaps you could post a new message giving me a few more details. Are they a weightloss clinic and what type of diet do they use? Do find out how much their treatments cost because you could be using this money towards a gastric bypass, if you need one. However, I would recommend that you rather consult a clinical dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will assess your condition and they types of diet you have tried and assist you with the correct diet to help you lose weight.
Do provide me with more info so that I can give you an opinion.
