The Dimagra weightloss diet is part of our medical wellness programme, which can be used in combination with our medicated weight loss injections and body contouring treatments by Cutera. Helping you lose weight by controlling appetite, curbing hunger and reducing cravings.
Dimagra is a ketogenic plan that induces ketosis to achieve weight loss.
The daily ration of Dimagra 21 day weight loss diet (Intensive Steps) consists of an intake of a specific amount of protein, almost complete elimination of carbohydrates (about 21 g daily) and a reduced intake of lipids.
With this kind of diet, the body rapidly depletes its available glucose, reducing glycaemia: the immediate consequence is a decreased secretion of insulin. Your body then uses liver glycogen which is converted into glucose. When these reserves are exhausted (approximately after 12-24 hours) the steady intake of high biological value proteins leads to the activation of the Liver Gluconeogenesis: glucose production from non – carbohydrate precursors (e.g. amino acids and lipolysis). Thus ketogenesis is activated.
Ketosis is a metabolic state wherein the liver burns body fat to provide fuel for the body when there is limited access to glucose. The plan itself consists of a high protein, low calorie diet with protein shakes and vitamin and mineral supplements.
Dimagra has performed multiple studies and research to determine the safety and effectiveness of the dietary treatment and was found to be safe due to:
- Exposure to a short term ketogenic diet
- Daily protein intake calculated for different groups requirements
- Presence of a portion of sugar in the solutions proposed
- Use of buffer systems
- Appropriate hydrating
- Specific exclusion criteria
- Optimum NRV for vitamins and minerals
- Plant extracts with important draining and detoxifying activites
Patients can lose as much as 8-10% of body weight in a 21 day course, transforming the silhouette with a significant reduction in inches.

Why is Dimagra different to other keto diets?
Dimagra is different due to the fact it is a medically balanced diet. It comes with supplements which are added to water each day to kick start your metabolism and ensure your body is receiving all the important vitamins and minerals. It is backed by a huge amount of clinical research and endorsed by medical professionals who study weight management. For this reason it is arguably the best ketogenic diet on the market today.
Unlike other diets, Dimagra provides a fast and noticeable reduction in inches, especially around the waist, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Muscle mass is maintained as only fat is lost, and hunger is decreased.
Am I a suitable candidate?
Dimagra is suitable for those who are overweight or obese, with a BMI of between 27 and 33. This diet plan is suitable for vegetarians and coeliacs.
It is not suitable for:
- Kidney or liver disease
- Type I diabetes (insulin dependent)
- Neoplasia in progress
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Children under age of 14 and adults over 70

How long does the diet take?
The first step lasts 21 days and can provide quick, significant results. This is then followed by a maintenance step, which lasts for 42 days and is less intense.

We often get asked about the cost of treatment. At Thames Skin Clinic we pride ourselves on results rather than focus on the price of a treatment, it is more important that we get the correct quality of product rather than offer cut price treatments, products and services (especially when it comes to medical treatments). You will never see Thames Skin Clinic advertising services on social coupon sites such as Groupon as we believe they have a negative impact on our customer safety, results and satisfaction. We also wish to abide by the advertising regulator and work in a safe ethical manor.
Our prices reflect the skill, training and premier product choices we have made as well as the true reflection of the beautiful bespoke clinic surroundings.
