There are thousands of programs for losing weight out there, but very few are backed by the science of the human body: medical science. Medical weight loss sounds intimidating, and it can differ significantly from traditional weight loss program. However, if you taking a quick look at the simple steps that make up a medical weight loss program, you may change your mind about medical weight loss.
What are the benefits of a Medical Weight Loss Program?
Medical weight loss is an attractive option for those that are overweight or at risk of developing weight-related health problems. In many cases, weight loss systems that use medical science have a greater chance of reducing:
- visceral fat,
- fatty liver,
- cholesterol levels,
- obstructive sleep apnea,
- type 2 diabetes,
- cardiovascular diseases.
During your initial consultation, provider will construct a unique medical profile that will be used to develop your optimal program. The medical profile includes:
- your body weight
- body fat percentage
- resting metabolism
- visceral fat
- biologic age
After these parameters are measured and recorded, your medical provider will construct a weight reduction plan that fits your specific body type.
Commonly Recommended Options
- Phentermine. Phentermine is a prescription medication that safely reduces appetite by targeting neurotransmitters that control hunger and food cravings. With a few limited side effects, Phentermine can reduce an overindulgent appetite to a level that can be sustained in the future.
- Injectable B vitamins. B vitamins greatly reduce the risk of developing high cholesterol, hypertension, and heart disease. This option is usually reserved for patients that are at increased risk for stroke or cardiovascular diseases. Medical science directly links the presence of B vitamins with the quick metabolization of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the body.
- Injectible Lipotropics: Methionine, Choline, and Lecithin. Lipotropics compounds that assist in metabolizing fat in the human body. Lipotropics focus on increasing your metabolism so that your body can be more effective at burning fat. Lipotropics take three unique forms: methionine, choline, and lecithin.Methionine is an amino acid that prevents estrogen from naturally increasing cholesterol levels in the liver. In some cases, high estrogen levels can impact the liver’s ability to control cholesterol levels in the body. Increasing your body’s methionine levels restores the chemical balance of your liver to keep cholesterol from building to dangerous levels. Doctors also prescribe choline, a supplementary lipotropic, to further regulate fat metabolism and to promote healthy liver function. Another important lipotropic, lecithin, may also be prescribed to help quell high cholesterol and to reduce the risk of hypertension.
