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 (like Semaglutide & Tirzepatide otherwise known as Ozempic and Mounjaro) 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.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weight loss injection. It is oftentimes known by it’s brand name, Ozempic.  By mimicking a hormone in the body, Semaglutide increases insulin secretion while slowing down how fast your stomach empties food. This suppresses your appetite, so you feel full longer, helping you eat less and lose weight.

The drug was initially approved in 2017 at a lower dose to help control blood sugar in Type 2 diabetes. People taking Semaglutide for blood sugar control lose weight as an additional benefit. After studying a higher amount of the medication in people without Type 2 diabetes, the FDA approved Semaglutide for weight loss in qualified adults.

How Does Semaglutide Work For Weight Loss?

Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (or GLP-1) that targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Your digestive tract releases this incretin hormone after you’ve eaten a meal, lowering your blood sugar by triggering insulin release to block sugar production. Doing so helps you eat less and lose one to two pounds per week. And while a reduced-calorie meal plan increases the rate at which you lose and keep off weight, dieting is not required to lose weight on Semaglutide.

Am I a Candidate for Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections

To determine whether you are a good candidate for weight loss with Semaglutide injections,  We will assess the extent of your being overweight. Adults can use Semaglutide with a body mass index (or BMI) greater than or equal to 30.  

Alternatively, you may be a candidate for Semaglutide weight loss if your BMI is 27 and you have at least one of the following weight-related conditions:

● High blood pressure

● High cholesterol

● Type 2 diabetes

Semaglutide should be combined with lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet and exercise. However, these measures are not necessary to lose weight with Semaglutide injections.

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a novel medication that has garnered significant attention in the realm of medical weight loss and diabetes management. It is oftentimes referred to as Mounjaro, it’s brand name.  It belongs to a class of drugs known as dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. This dual action sets it apart from other medications commonly used for similar purposes.


The mechanism of action of tirzepatide revolves around its ability to mimic the actions of two naturally occurring hormones in the body: GLP-1 and GIP. GLP-1 is responsible for stimulating insulin secretion, reducing glucagon secretion, slowing gastric emptying, and promoting satiety. GIP also plays a role in insulin secretion and energy regulation. By activating both GLP-1 and GIP receptors, tirzepatide effectively lowers blood sugar levels, promotes weight loss, and helps regulate appetite.


One of the key benefits of tirzepatide is its dual action, which allows for improved glycemic control and significant weight loss in individuals with type 2 diabetes. Clinical trials have demonstrated that tirzepatide can lead to substantial reductions in both fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels, as well as meaningful weight loss compared to placebo and other antidiabetic medications. This makes it a promising option for individuals struggling with obesity and diabetes, as it addresses both conditions simultaneously.


Moreover, tirzepatide has shown potential in reducing cardiovascular risk factors, such as blood pressure and lipid levels, which are commonly elevated in individuals with type 2 diabetes and obesity. This multifaceted approach to managing metabolic health makes tirzepatide an attractive option for healthcare providers and patients alike.


However, like any medication, tirzepatide is not without its side effects. Common side effects include gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort. These symptoms typically occur early in treatment and may subside over time as the body adjusts to the medication. Additionally, there is a risk of hypoglycemia, particularly when tirzepatide is used in combination with other antidiabetic medications or insulin.


Tirzepatide represents a promising advancement in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity. Its unique dual action mechanism offers improved glycemic control, significant weight loss, and potential cardiovascular benefits. While it may cause gastrointestinal side effects and carry a risk of hypoglycemia, the overall benefits of tirzepatide make it a valuable addition to the armamentarium of medications available for managing these chronic conditions. As always, individuals considering tirzepatide should consult with their healthcare provider to determine if it is an appropriate option for their specific needs and medical history.

What is Phentermine?

Phentermine is an FDA approved appetite suppressant designed to boost energy while curbing your appetite. If we determine this is the best weight loss option, you will be prescribed a 4-8 week course of the medication. We will work in conjunction with the medication to adjust your diet and help you determine an activity/exercise program which can be worked into your daily routine.

This program includes:

  • Initial exam
  • 4-8 weeks of physician monitored medication (Phentermine)*
  • Diet plan
  • Activity/exercise plan
  • Counseling
  • Regular visits and weigh-ins


Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is very successful in weight loss when it is combined with an appropriate diet and activity plan. Low B12 levels can interfere with a number of body systems, making you feel tired and depleted.  Boosting your Vitamin B12 helps increase your activity level and metabolism.



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.

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.

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.

  • 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?

How Lipotopic Injections work to Lose Weight
