Looking for medical weight loss in West Palm Beach, Florida? Give the team at Palm Beach Medical a call today to give your diet program a powerful kick-start!
Patients will be counseled on specific diet plans. These will be customized based on the patient's needs and goals.
Exercise is an important part of successful weight loss programs. This will be discussed at the first visit.
The supplements we use aid in metabolism and caloric restriction and are as follows:
Probese- This is a weight loss aid that contains vitamins, trace minerals, and carboxymethylcellulose, a bulking agent, to create a feeling of fullness and help curb the appetite. Chromium, an essential trace mineral, has been added to this combination to aid in the metabolism of sugar and other carbohydrates.
Diucaps-This contains essential amino acids and vitamins to reduce hunger and metabolize carbohydrates and fat.
DHEA with Bioperine- A recent study by the Journal of the American Medical Association has shown that DHEA, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that declines with advancing age, has been found to shrink abdominal fat. DHEA also has been shown to improve memory function, produce lean muscle mass, balances blood sugar levels, and relieve fatigue. It has potential anti-tumor, anti-aging, anti-cholesterol effects. Bioperine is added to improve absorption of the DHEA.
SLIMSHOT Lipotropic diet booster-Patients may chose to maximize their weight loss by receiving B12 injections combined with lipotropic amino acids. These injections help you burn fat by boosting energy and increasing the removal of fat from the body. These are given weekly.
HCG(Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) injection-Hcg is currently being used as a key ingredient in successful weight loss programs. Hcg is believed to directly affect bad fat while protecting your body's good fat and muscle loss. It may also help to naturally decrease your appetite by mobilizing fat as an energy source. Independent studies have shown that people using Hcg tend to feel better, cope better, and quality of sleep improves. These are given once or twice weekly.
Medications may be prescribed depending on each individual patient's needs and health history. Medication is Phentermine capsules.
