Health Benefits of Our Medical Weight Loss Program
About our Fort Collins Medical Weight Loss Program
Our Medical Weight Loss Program is designed to help you reach your healthy weight goals with our proven system.
Prescription Medications: Just like other chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes, the use of prescription drugs may be necessary. These medications can suppress your appetite up to 50% which often has a dramatic effect on the weight you can lose in a short span of time; it also improves your mood and energy.
Proper Nutrition: It consists of high protein, low calorie, increase water intake, and low fat diet. Protein performs many vital functions including speeding up metabolism and preserving lean body tissue during the rapid weight loss phase. Protein also provides a greater feeling of satiety which helps suppress the appetite. Just like protein, water reduces appetite as it makes you feel fuller. More importantly, water flushes down the byproducts of fat breakdown resulting in weight loss. Drink water before and after each meal. Calories are energy needed to function. The number of calories a person needs will depend on your height, weight, gender, age, and activity level. However, excess in calorie intake will be stored as fat. Fats are stored energy. There are different types of fats. Unsaturated fats, specifically monosaturated fats, raises HDL which provides some protection against heart attacks. Saturated fats are the least healthy because it increases the level of cholesterol in your body. Limit high saturated fat diet including butter, some margarine, and fats in meat. Never skip a meal as it slows down your metabolism and hinders weight loss.
Physical Exercise: A combination of anaerobic and aerobic exercise for at least an hour 3 times a week will greatly speed up your metabolism and make losing weight easier. You will burn more calories after 30 minutes from the start of the work out, so always make sure to exercise for at least an hour.

You might be surprised to learn that many people who are deficient in essential vitamins and nutrients can’t lose weight, as their body is not functioning as it should. So, it might not be your diet, or exercise regimen, but the lack of essential vitamins and nutrients your body isn’t receiving, that is limiting your ability to lose the weight.

HCG Medical Weight Loss – Proven Successful Weight Loss Program
The HCG Diet program has been a huge success in helping thousands of patients lose weight and more importantly, make lasting changes in their diets and therefore in their health. It has been an incredibly rewarding program to facilitate! We love what the HCG Diet can do for people who need to lose weight and learn how to maintain an optimal body composition.
History of the HCG Diet
In the 1950’s and 1960’s, Dr. Simeons made a ground breaking discovery with weight loss! He discovered that when patients were given the hormone HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), along with a specific low calorie diet, the result was increased weight loss that came from fat stores and protected lean body mass. In Rome, Dr. Simeons treated thousands of patients with his protocol. These patients felt very satisfied and did not experience hunger on the program. In the last ten years, the HCG Diet has become a sought after weight loss plan due to its level of safety and effectiveness.
More about Phentermine
What is Phentermine? Phentermine, and the chemically related medications, phendimetrazine and diethylproprion, are prescription appetite suppressants used for the treatment of excess weight and obesity. Used in conjunction with other weight loss modalities including a lower calorie diet and increased physical activity these drugs are extremely effective tools for helping individuals loose weight and maintain weight loss.
How Does Phentermine Work? Phentermine, phendimetrazine and diethylproprion suppresses appetite by changing the chemistry in the brain in a way that decreases the hunger drive. Individuals taking these medications lose weight because they are less hungry and thus consume fewer calories. These medications help you feel more in control of your appetite and food cravings. They can increase your satiety which means that when you eat you will feel full sooner. Phentermine, phendimetrazine and diethylproprion can also help you take your mind off food so that you can think about other things.
Does Phentermine burn calories or fat? No. These medications do not alter metabolism or cause your body to burn more fat.
Is Phentermine safe? Yes. Phentermine, phendimetrazine and diethylproprion are safe medications with few side effects. Phentermeine has been on the market since 1959 and has been taken by millions of patients. These medications have never been associated with a serious medical complication.
Is Phetermine the same thing as fen/phen? No. Fen/fen was a two drug combination of fenfluramine and phentermine. Fenfluramine is not related chemically to phentermine. Fenfluramine was taken off the market in 1997 because it was thought to cause in some patients a serious complication known as pulmonary hypertension. Phentermine has never been associated with pulmonary hypertension or any other medical complication.
The Basics of Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is naturally found in things that many of us already include in our diets. It is found in the eggs, meat, and dairy that we eat each day. Vegetarians and vegans clearly don’t include these foods and are a greater risk of having a B12 deficiency.
B12 is a plays a fundamental role in providing energy for the brain to operate smoothly, and is part of the production of red blood cells. This makes Vitamin B12 part of ensuring that the nervous system and circulatory system work the way they should. Deficiencies of B12 can manifest themselves as various symptoms. These symptoms can include a feeling of light-headedness, fatigue, poor recall and memory problems, and even diarrhea or constipation.
The Benefits Of Vitamin B12 Injections
While there exists a lot of different benefits to having B12 injections there are some key uses that people seek these energy boosting shots for. We have listed 5 of the most common uses for B12 injections.
- Boost The Immune System– Increasing the level of B12 in your body helps support the immune system by strengthening the whole body’s overall functioning. When the body has a good supply of red blood cells and is working as it should there is enough energy to fight off infections.
- Improved Energy, Mood, And Focus– Because B12 is part of the energy source for the brain a good supply of it means that your cognitive functions can run unhindered. This means that you will have less mental fatigue, which improves our moods and helps us focus better.
- Better Sleep– Insomnia is a serious condition that ruins countless nights of sleep for people around the world. Vitamin B12 has been found to have a positive effect on the circadian rhythm. This means that you will feel tired when it is time for bed, and get better sleep.
- Weight Loss Assistance– While the simple addition of B12 will not burn off the pounds while people sit on the couch, the addition of B12 to proper diet and exercise can help accelerate weight loss. Lipotropic shots that contain B12 help metabolize fat. This means that the body will be able to burn the fat instead of simply burning the sugars we consume.
- Helps Prevent Heart Disease – Homocysteine levels have been found as an independent risk for heart disease. It is related to a deficiency of the vitamins B12 and B6. B12 injections help keep these levels low and help prevent heart disease.
Lipotropic Injections and Weight Loss
The body needs vitamins and nutrients to function. They regulate hormones,and when a hormone imbalance is present, or if your body isn’t functioning as it should, this can cause you to feel sluggish, tired, and yes, even limit your body’s ability to burn fat and calories. You don’t have to starve yourself or rely on those dangerous pills; rather, consider a few of these pointers to get you going in the right direction towards weight loss success.
What are Lipotropic Injections?
Basically, the injections contain a solution of lipotropic nutrients which are made up of various components to help burn fat. These include: Inositol, Choline, L-Carnitine, Methionine, B-complex vitamins, Vitamin B12, and other essential nutrients, vitamins,and amino acids.
Why so many nutrients? Each plays a unique role in the way your body burns fat, and in turn metabolizes it for weight loss. Further, this is how your body eliminates toxins from the system. Not only are these shots natural and safe, doctors and weight loss specialists alike use them with patients, in an effort to achieve weight loss success. Further, the benefits for your overall well being, and energy levels, will truly be noticed immediately upon use. When combined with proper diet and exercise regimen, you can expect exceptional results when using the lipotropic injections as prescribed.
How Lipotopic Injections work to Lose Weight
With a high dose of essential nutrients the body needs, you are instantly going to notice a change in your body. By promoting and encouraging more fat loss and calorie burn, your body is naturally going to lose more weight when you incorporate the injections with diet and exercise. Further, it will aid in pushing excess fat out of the bloodstream, so you are naturally going to notice higher calorie burn, and you are going to find that you are losing more weight, even if you don’t change anything else in the diet.
Bile and fat can get stored in the liver; when you incorporate the injections, this is no longer the case. It will naturally push fat out of the liver, to avoid this build up. Further, liver failure and other organ failure, isn’t going to be a problem when using the injections, as these problems will naturally flush themselves out.
Trapped bile and fat is also responsible for slowing down the metabolism; so, even with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, you are hindering yourself if you aren’t using the injections. And, it can wreak havoc on your organs; so, incorporating the injections is a natural solution to the issues you are trying to resolve. All of this should explain why you have been having such a hard time with your diet, even if you are eating well and exercising. So, the natural solution is to visit Nuimagemedical.com, to find the appropriate injections to aid your body in natural weight loss success.
