Our Diet Programs
We use a structured, easy to follow, low fat/low carbohydrate/moderate protein ketogenic diet program for our weight loss clients called Ideal Protein. This program combines manufactured medical foods designed to trigger fat loss with store-bought vegetables and proteins.
This is a proven program, used by our office for over 10 years, which is affordable and easy to follow. You will receive free weekly coaching and body composition measurements from your weight loss coach. Visits with your coach can be in person or done remotely using a scale that pairs with your smartphone. We typically see up to 20 pounds lost per month through this program, even without weight loss medication!
For those who may not wish to use our preferred Ideal Protein diet, we also offer weekly coaching at a reasonable fee for a 10 week program, using conventional store-bought foods, but still following a low fat/low carbohydrate, moderate protein ketogenic diet with weekly body composition testing.
Prescribed Weight Loss Medication
We can prescribe weight loss medications such as semaglutide (brand name Wegovy), Tirzepatide (Mounjaro), Metformin, or Phentermine which can greatly accelerate your weight loss by improving your ability to burn fat, restore your cells insulin sensitivity, and cut out your cravings. It is much easier to stay on a diet when you are no longer hungry and the new semaglutide drug greatly reduces your appetite and accelerates fat burning, allowing you to stick to your diet and lose that weight!
Semaglutide (Wegovy) and Tirzepatide (Mounjaro)
Semaglutide is a true game-changer in the medical weight loss field. It works as a GLP-1 agonist, meaning it mimics the natural GLP-1 hormone produced in your body after a meal, which makes you feel full and also enhances your body’s ability to burn calories and fat. Unlike the natural GLP-1 hormone, which quickly disappears, the semaglutide version lasts for a week. Since it is almost identical to the natural hormone, it has very few side effects. Studies prove that it will typically trigger a 15% loss of body weight over 6 months, and we have found that when combing it with our Ideal Protein or similar weight loss diet, we see even faster and greater weight loss results. Semaglutide is now FDA approved for weight loss and we have been prescribing it to our weight loss patients since it was approved in 2021 with great results.
Tirzepatide is a new drug similar to semaglutide that seems to be even more effective in a recent study. Patients lost up to 20% of their body weight over 72 weeks with a once-weekly injection, a balanced diet, and moderate exercise. Tirzepatide is not yet FDA approved for weight loss, but we can prescribe it “off-label” if needed for weight loss purposes.
Our patients have lost over 60 pounds in as little as 2 months on this medication when following a weight loss diet and exercising moderately.
Side effects are minimal and very manageable with dose adjustments, typically patients experience a lack of appetite or mild nausea, bloating, or feeling “full”. This medication is painlessly injected once per week under the skin and we will teach you how to do the injections at home. Other weight loss clinics also prescribe semaglutide (Wegovy) but it can be extremely expensive, costing over $1500.00 per month at major pharmacies and many pharmacies are sold out or it is backordered and often insurance won’t pay for it. However, we have made arrangements with our preferred pharmacy to supply our clients with this medication at a significant discount.
