Weight Loss Is Simple, Right?
Wrong! In reality, weight loss is incredibly difficult. If losing weight were easy, there would be no overweight individuals. As our metabolism slows and stressful lifestyles lead to poor eating and exercising choices, weight loss seems impossible. After failing on their own, overweight individuals then turn to outside “help” including expensive programs, fad diets, and potentially dangerous dietary supplements that provide no long-term maintenance strategy.
What is the Difference Between This Program and Over The Counter Weight Loss Products That Claim to Promote Weight Loss Without Utilizing A Diet?
Over the counter weight loss pills can be very dangerous to one’s health. Many of the products are fads that don’t live up to their promises. The experience of those who have utilized fad diets shows that maintenance of the new body weight is almost more difficult than the actual weight loss itself. The success of an effective weight loss program depends on the results being maintained long-term—and that requires behavioral and lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise. The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program® is medically supervised and offers safe, effective weight loss.
Can I Lose Weight if I Have a “Slow Metabolism”?
A number of people suffer from “Slow Metabolic Syndrome”, a term we have coined to describe the syndrome of people who gain weight easily and have extreme difficulty in losing it. This seems to occur more frequently in females than in males, especially females over the age of 35. The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program® has achieved success in helping people with Slow Metabolic Syndrome because of the all- encompassing approach of medication, lifestyle and behavioral modification.
How Does the Program Work?
The program consists of weekly visits with the medical staff and the average weight loss is 35 pounds in 12 weeks. Patients may attend more than one session to achieve their weight loss goals. We do have a comprehensive approach that allows for aggressive, but safe weight loss. It incorporates use of our unique patented oral serotonin supplement, Serotonin-PlusTM, to naturally reduce appetite, decrease carbohydrate cravings and binge eating tendencies. Serotonin imbalance has been implicated as contributing to increased carbohydrate cravings, binge eating, depression, anxiety, PMS, sleep disorders and fibromyalgia. We also utilize phentermine, an FDA approved prescription appetite suppressant, when needed; and, behavior modification through an effective transitional diet and exercise plan. The SPWLP is the only weight loss program that can utilize a direct serotonin supplement.
During the first visit, you will have your medical history reviewed, receive a physical examination, EKG and laboratory blood testing. We will then review the Transitional Diet PlanTM, corresponding meal plans and associated information. The Diet Plan is a 3-phase diet consisting of real food (3 full meals/day and 2 snacks) and is based upon an exchange-type system. Subsequent weekly visits will include a weigh-in, blood pressure and pulse checks, examination of your heart and lungs, periodic body fat, and circumference measurements. Patients are re-evaluated until optimal weight loss is achieved. We also provide a maintenance diet when your weight loss goal is achieved.
