PronoKal Medical Weightloss Programme
The PronoKal Medical Weightloss Programme is a personalised weight loss programme that is run under medical supervision. The programme is based on a protein diet and has been specifically developed so that you can lose weight and then maintain this weight-loss in the long-term. PronoKal reduces the intake of fats and sugars but also provides the correct amount of proteins the body needs to function properly, ensuring that weight loss takes place at the expense of accumulated fat rather than lean muscle mass.
You are supported by both the Illuminate team and by PronoKal’s multi-disciplinary patient monitoring team throughout the programme.
Disclaimer: Please be aware that results and benefits may vary from patient to patient taking into consideration factors such as age, lifestyle and medical history.

How does this treatment work?
The programme consists of 4 key elements: diet, nutrition, physical activity and coaching and it works in 3 key stages. During the ‘Active’ stage you aims to lose 80% of their excess weight. This is followed by the ‘Physiological Adaptation Stage’, during which you gradually lose the remaining 20% of excess weight whilst re-introducing a full and varied diet. Finally, the ‘Maintenance’ stage involves following a healthy balanced diet and regular check ups for a 2-year period.
What happens during my treatment?
