About

Dr Philip Bazire trained at University College London before specialising in General Surgery and Out-of-Hospital Emergency Medicine in Spain. He has a special interest in the effects of diet and lifestyle on health and disease, and he undertook a Masters course with a focus on micronutrition and weight loss.

Dr Bazire set up a clinic in Zamora, Spain, and introduced the PnK Method by PronoKal, a very-low-calorie ketogenic diet which allowed his patients to achieve much greater weight loss than had been possible with other diets. This method also gives patients the added benefit of rapid results with an absence of hunger.

Dr Bazire is now the manager of PronoKal UK, based in London, where he also works as a prescribing doctor to offer patients evidence-based non-surgical weight-management programmes.

Excellent advice, friendly and helpful. Takes a clear interest in patients' health and well-being. I would definitely recommend to anyone who needs help to lose weight and feel better.

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you very much for your recommendation. Dieting is a holistic issue, not just eating less. So it is important not only to understand the science that can deliver an effective diet, but also to be able to apply that science in the full medical context of each individual.

Dr Bazire, was good very and attentive, he clearly understands the science behind the pronokal method and its interaction with our metabolism!

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you very much for your comments. Only understanding the metabolic changes that are induced by any diet can we adequately control the process, ensure its safety and achieve the besst results. As medical director and trainer for PronoKal, I must keep abreast of all developments and apply them to the benefit my patients.

Dr. Philip is a great profesional following up my case and asking for blood test to check my health when appropriate. I am Spanish and it was fantastic to be in a clinic where the Dr was able to speak with me in Spanish and making everything easier to understand

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you very much for your words. Safety is another important aspect; at PronoKal, we promote this by involving doctors as the health professionals who prescribe the diet, with a full work-up including blood tests. And it has been a pleasure for me to be able to speak to you in your mother tongue.

I am a 5.8" male aged 40 but weighed 92kg and 28.4% body fat in early June 2018. I had become unhappy about my weight and fluctuated through different stages of emotional depression as a result of my weight since 2014. I had the resolve for a change but had not found a way to carry it through. One day while browsing internet articles I came across Pronokal as a weight loss method used by Luciano Camargo, a well-known Brazilian singer. I started looking into it and got in touch with Dr Bazire's Pronokal clinic in London. I met Dr Bazire and his team on 26th June 2018 and started the program the next day, with a goal of weighing 65kg by 23rd October, when I was due to fly overseas on holidays. I am incredibly happy to write that I met my goal having weighed 65.7kg and 14.1% body fat on 11th October! I lost over 26kg and had the best holidays of the past 10 years because I looked and felt great about myself. I write this review in April 2019 when I remain between the 65 - 67 kg mark so the change has been sustainable. Throughout my experience Dr Bazire and his team were very personable and non-judgemental. Between countless compliments from family, friends and co-workers and the knowledge I acquired from Dr Bazire's nutritionists I have been able to lead a healthier life. I almost cannot believe I went 40 years without having ever spoken to a nutritionist before. Pronokal's products did the trick. I really got into the coconut chocolate bars. They were just delicious. I have read of people on this journey finding difficult to adapt to meal times but I just set reminders on my phone and carried Pronokal's products with me, even on holidays overseas. I would encourage those that need to give it a go. There is no way to describe the feeling of accomplishment and feeling happy about yourself. You are in safe hands with a doctor and a nutritionist at hand. There is also a fitness trainer available (but I have to say this is an area they need to improve; the advice came in too late though luckily for me I know my way around a gym or how to exercise at home). The method is supplemented by vitamins etc so it is not a crazy diet that you hear about in celebrity magazines. I have to say that this changed my life completely so I thank Dr Bazire and his team. You are wonderful.

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you very much for your detailed account of your weight-loss journey. You show us all how it is possible to take control of your diet and weight and feel great. And most importantly, it is safe, with medical control and correct supplementation. It is interesting to hear that you set reminders for mealtimes; one feels good on this diet and not hungry (I speak from personal experience) so, if you're busy on something, it's easy to let meals slip past. We'll work on the personal trainer side of things.

Extremely professional, polite and approachable Doctor. Communicates in an efficient way, adapting the vocabulary considering the Patient's level of instruction. Attends to Patient's individual needs. Excellent problem-solving capacity.

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you very much for your comments. As I have said several times, I believe it is essential that a patient understand what he or she is taking on and how the process will work; as doctors, we have to be able to communicate clearly and understandably in order for our patients to have the best chance of success. And then our patients have to have the confidence that their doctor can guide them through any difficulties that might arise (not uncommon in weight management); I am glad you felt this confidence with me.

Having struggled with weight management, I was sceptical about any kind of diet programme, I was pleasantly surprised and felt reassured throughout the process with Dr Bazire and the team at Pronokal. Happy with the attentiveness that the team provided but also the motivation that they gave to keep going. I am not 20kg lighter and much happier. Dr Bazire has undergone the programme as has most of the people who I met at Pronokal, so its great to know that you are speaking to people who can help you to get to your own goals and provide advice throughout the process. I am post stage 5, but will probably set new goals and work with Dr Bazire and the team to get to the even slimmer fitter new future me. Highly recommended,.

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you very much for sharing your achievement, and congratulations on losing 20 kg. As you say, one of the great things about PronoKal is that you can pause along the way and have a break, then get back into it if you want to go a little further. We are always here to help you in any way we can.

I needed to remove a lot of weight quickly ahead of an operation. I set my target as 21 kg. I actually removed 28kg in 3 months. The diet is easy to follow, and with veg quite filling. What was very interesting was my immune system, it seemed to do really well, not one cold in the diet time, and indeed it fought off 2 cold attempts within 24 hours. I am delighted to have used Pronokal.

Dr Philip Bazire

That's a really excellent result, showing the true power of PronoKal to achieve rapid weight loss. The effect on your immune system reflects the healthy nature of the diet, which delivers 100% of micronutrient requirments (EFSA guidelines) to ensure correct physiological functions even during energy restriction for weight loss.

I went to Dr Philip Bazire for a pre-screening and explanation of the Pronokal ketosis diet. The screening was comprehensive but also easy to understand and Dr Bazire's explanation of the diet and everything to watch out for was very straightforward. Best of the lot - the diet worked and I lost 6 kilos in 3 weeks without being hungry, without loss of muscle and with all my usual energy. Highly recommended!

Dr Philip Bazire

Thank you for your comments and congratulations on losing those 6 kg...and in only 3 weeks. Helping you to understand the process is so important not only to achieve your goal, but also in the long term - only if you understand how the weight comes on (and then off), will you be able to keep it off after you finish the diet and the dietary re-education we provide.

Pronokal is the one of the best choices in terms of learning how to get your body into ketosis and eliminating bad habits. Philip gives great guidance and ensures you stay on the rails to achieve your own personal goal...

I have been on Pronokal for 6/7 years. So was very familiar how the Pronokal and the team started out. I have been very impressed with Dr Bazire, great to have a Dr on site as I was never organised to arrange an appointment. He was very thorough, efficient and professional. Gave good advice and encouragement. and encouragement.
