Phentermine for weight loss & appetite control

Phentermine can be very effective when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

With so many diet pills on the market and while many are effective it is important to realize that no diet pill is a cure all on its own. Phentermine must be combined with other factors such as diet and exercise in order to be truly effective. Phentermine works best when it is combined with proper nutrition and adequate physical activity. Phentermine should be taken as instructed and you should never use diet pills as a substitute for cutting calories.

What is Phentermine?

Oral phentermine Hydrochlorid (HCL) is sold for weight loss. It is in the lower case Sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants (Used for the management of exogenous obesity.)

When used in conjunction with diet, exercise and behavior therapy, phentermine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and exercise.

How does Phentermine work?

Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease appetite.

The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.

Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet and/or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.

Any modifications in your diet, activity level and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning but Phentermine is a great medication for weight loss maintenance once goals are met.

The difference In weight loss medications

Prescription diet pills are medications regulated by the FDA, which has test information concerning side effects, risks and suggests prescribed dosages. like all medications, prescription diet pills still offer side effects but our patients rarely experience these under supervision.

Over-the-counter diet pills are categorized as food substitute and are not FDA regulated. They are not tested to ensure safety and unknown even deadly side effects may occur from consumption.

Innovative Women’s Health weight loss medication prescriptions

At Innovative Women's Health  we prescribe medications for a 30-day supply only after patients are verified to be healthy enough for such medication.

Patients are required to submit a brief “progress report” either on line or in person so we can be assured that the patient is feeling healthy and no negative reactions have occurred. We also offer multiple locations where patients can have our state of the art InBody testing to track their body composition.

Medications such as Bontril, Phentermine and Fluoxetine are prescribed to suppress a patient’s appetite therefore allowing them to stick to a specific food plan for weight loss. Any additional questions concerning medical weight loss medication can be presented to the specialists of the Innovative Women's Health & Protect Clinic for complete descriptions.

INBODY BODY COMPOSITION TESTING

How we track diet progress

Using the InBody Scale we measure your segmental muscle/fat analysis and understand your muscle/fat distribution, allowing us to clearly track your progress.

InBody body composition testing

InBody Body Composition testing allows for a much more detailed approach to weight control. Most clinics focus on body weight alone while in reality it is Body Composition (the distribution of body mass) that matters most.

Body composition analysis is like that, except instead of learning that you need to change your oil or replace your brake pads, you might learn that your body fat percentage is higher than you thought, or that your right side is stronger than your left and you need to work to bring your body back into balance.”  In Body USA.com

Our InBody composition testing machine gives a detailed reading of muscle to fat ratios, BMI and percentage of body fat. We can also gather segmented information to determine muscle to fat ratios in your arms, legs and mid-section.  Body composition analysis is essential if you want to get serious about managing your weight.

Click to see a sample Body Composition Analysis here.

Each clinic has a state of the art InBody machine that measures body water, body fat, body muscle, and more in a non-invasive way. We are able to see in real time details that allow us to focus our attention and make any necessary changes to help us reach our goals. This consultation is offered free for our members.
