Your medical weight loss plan may include:

Mounjaro

At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, we may recommend Mounjaro medications for weight loss. Mounjaro is an FDA-approved medication originally used to control blood sugar levels in patients with type II diabetes, but it can also support weight loss. Studies have shown that overweight and obese individuals can lose 5% to 22.5% of their total body weight a few months after starting Mounjaro treatments.

Mounjaro works by releasing insulin when blood sugar is high and activating a hormone called GLP-1, which causes feelings of fullness and satisfaction after meals, helping control appetite and reduce hunger pangs. It also slows down digestion, making you feel full for longer periods, thus reducing the likelihood of snacking between meals.

Wegovy

Wegovy is an FDA-approved weight loss medication that can be used with diet and exercise to help you lose weight. It is a subcutaneous injection that mimics the effects of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. This hormone regulates appetite, slows food absorption, and increases feelings of fullness.

When used as directed, Wegovy can reduce body weight and improve related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. However, it’s important to note that Wegovy is not for everyone, and it should be used in conjunction with lifestyle changes and under the guidance of a healthcare professional.

Phentermine

Phentermine is a prescription medication commonly used as an appetite suppressant to aid in weight loss. It is a stimulant that releases certain neurotransmitters (dopamine and norepinephrine) in the brain, which can reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness. Phentermine is typically used with diet and exercise to help individuals control their appetite, stick to their diets, and lose weight.

Phentermine is FDA-approved for short-term use, usually up to a few weeks, as a part of a weight loss program. However, it should be used under the supervision of a healthcare provider because it can cause side effects such as increased heart rate, high blood pressure, and insomnia. Furthermore, long-term use of phentermine can increase tolerance, so it’s useful for a short period under our medical provider’s supervision.

Vitamin Booster Injections

Vitamin booster injections can be a component of a weight loss program to provide nutrients that support weight loss. Depending on the type of injection, the formula can include vitamins and minerals, amino acids, or other weight loss-enhancing nutrients. Vitamin injections can help with weight loss by increasing energy levels and metabolism, reducing hunger, and supporting overall health. Our medical providers will identify specific vitamins for your needs.

Ideal Protein Diet

The Ideal Protein Diet is a weight loss program emphasizing high-quality protein and low carbohydrate intake, along with other nutrient-rich foods and supplements. The idea behind the diet is to provide the body with enough protein to maintain muscle mass while promoting fat loss and limiting carb intake to minimize insulin spikes. It’s a low-calorie diet that can reduce appetite and boost weight loss.
