Prescription Appetite Suppression Therapy
We use these pharmaceutical tools to help our patients lose weight while they cope with their craving for food. Just taking a pill may make some weight disappear for a time, but
if behavior modifications are not part of the treatment, the weight will return. These drugs are prescribed only by our licensed medical provider.
There is only one way to lose weight. Your body must utilize or burn more calories than it takes in from the food you eat. With respect to a successful and healthy diet, it is important to develop habits you can live with for the rest of your life. We recommend a balanced diet using guidelines similar to those established by the US Department of Agriculture. More recently, these guidelines have been modified to allow “moderate fat” (previously “low” fat) with an emphasis on heart-healthy mono- and polyunsaturated fats. We recommend a high fiber and moderate fat diet with low sugar, starch, and white flour products. Our patients taking prescription appetite suppressant medications are put on a 1200-calorie weight loss diet for women, and an 1800-calorie diet for men. The medications make it easy to follow these diets. You won't have to fight hunger while incorporating healthy eating habits into your lifestyle. The prescription medications are Ephedra-free.
Over 90 percent of the patients on our programs lose weight; however, weight loss depends on several factors including genetics, gender—men lose weight faster than
women because they have more metabolically active tissue, the number of calories consumed each day, and how much a patient exercises. Weight loss of two to five pounds a week is not unusual. More
dramatic weight loss often leads to long-term failure in keeping weight off and modifying lifestyle and behavior. Prescription medications we offer make it much easier to follow healthy diet and
exercise recommendations. These medications have been used for more than 30 years for safe, effective weight loss.
