A Medical Approach to Weight Loss
During this visit, our trained medical staff will complete a full health assessment and review your medical history. If you have health risks related to obesity, we can address them and provide you with options that will empower you to better your health and wellness. Your health assessment includes taking your basic vitals, and performing an EKG. Your personalized weight-loss plan is designed to keep you free from hunger and will include medical supervision, weekly B12 injections, and FDA-approved medication (if required).
Weight loss is extremely important for one's health, but sometimes extremely difficult to obtain. When a sensible diet and exercise do not work, we offer different solutions to help people lose weight.
Diet pills usually help people eat less as well as eat more healthy foods. It also improves your motivation level, which helps people exercise more. It also seems to stimulate your metabolism and helps you burn more calories. While taking diet pills we need to monitor your heart rate and blood pressure. We normally use diet pills for 6 months and then try a "med holiday". The medication is called Adipex-P or phentermine. The visits are at least once a month and the cost is approx. $150.00 per month. This is much cheaper than competing weight loss plans in Tampa. Many offices are charging $75/week or $300/month. The price includes medical follow-up, medication, and a B12 injection. Weekly B12 injections are $30 each.
Diet - We recommend the South Beach diet. Some people like to follow the Weight Watcher Diet which is also acceptable.
Injections -With every visit, you get a shot of B12, B complex, and MIC (methionine, inositol, choline). This shot is called lipotropic which means fat breakdown. The basis of these injections is that Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin used by the body to create energy. The lipotropic MIC is a combination of three amino acids that are targeted toward the liver. The liver is involved in removing fat from the body. These injections help you to lose weight by 1) boosting energy (so that you will burn off more calories) and 2) increasing the removal of fat from the body.
What if I can't make my wight in? We have a number of patients who for one reason or another are unable to come into the office on a weekly basis. In this scenario special accommodations can be made, these patients are able to come in every other week. Monthly for a medication refill.
