Medical Weight Loss, and More

<strong>Medical Weight Loss, and More</strong>

Medical weight loss consists of customized meal plans, dietary supplements, exercise programs, and medication prescriptions to increase your chance of achieving a desirable body weight. Accountability visits and meal plan templates are also part of the program. Medical weight loss programs are tailored to your unique needs, lifestyle, food preferences, medical history, and more. 

To determine which weight loss program is best for you, your will be weighed and your body mass index (BMI) will be determined. Your blood pressure and other vital signs will also be checked. A physical exam is completed along with a review of your lifestyle, medical history, possible symptoms, medication regimen, and meal and exercise preferences. You may need a blood test to evaluate your hormone levels, cholesterol, blood sugar, and other indicators of possible disease risk factors. 

From there a custom nutrition and weight loss plan will be customized just for you, taking into account your food preferences to ensure your program is something you can stick with long-term.  

Hormone therapy or appetite-suppressing medication, if needed, may also be prescribed to make your weight loss journey as simple and effective as possible. You also have the option of vitamin B12 injections, QWO® injections to reduce cellulite, methionine inositol choline (MIC) injections to break down fat, IV nutrition therapy, PiYo™ exercise classes, and more. 

This program can help you manage diabetes, high blood pressure, or other diseases when necessary.

Appetite Suppressants

Appetite suppressants, such as semaglutide, phentermine, and Contrave®, aid in weight loss in a variety of ways. They may help you feel full after eating fewer calories, reduce your appetite, or even aid in fat burning.  Such suppressants make it easier to effectively reach your goal weight and maintain it long-term. They make the perfect addition to a medically supervised weight loss plan. 

Appetite suppressants are safe and highly effective. They offer outstanding weight loss outcomes. 

Appetite suppressants are meant for use in combination with a nutritious meal plan and regular exercise program. Additional effective weight loss strategies include getting plenty of sleep (at least seven hours each night), drinking more water, keeping your body moving, and eating nutritious foods.
