Weight Loss Program
Transform your body and reach your weight loss goals with our scientifically-proven and personalized weight loss program.
Individualized weight loss management programs are gaining popularity as many look for more manageable ways to shed unwanted weight. One of the more popular and recent weight loss methods is semaglutide injections.
Small changes lead to significant results, and with semaglutide injections, weight loss is attainable. Unlike fad diets of the past and crash-and-burn tactics, a well-devised weight loss program focuses on losing weight and keeping it off, too. This often involves combining a proven methodology, in this case, semaglutide injections, with a healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes to create a realistic, achievable plan.
Being overweight and obese is an epidemic right now. Unfortunately, too many Americans struggle with their weight and want to lose the extra pounds for improved health and overall well-being. But doing it can be challenging, and sometimes a little help and a step in the right direction is all you need to get on the right path. Not only can weight loss help you lose weight, but it can also improve health issues like diabetes and heart disease and your overall quality of life. So if you’re ready to make a change, now’s the time and a weight loss program that is structured and monitored by a healthcare professional is the best way to do it.
What is a Weight Loss Program?
A weight loss program is a specially designed plan to help patients realistically achieve their weight loss goals healthily and safely. These programs typically include a combination of diet, exercise, and lifestyle elements and coached support. Now, these plans implement proven weight loss medications, like semaglutide, which helps jumpstart weight loss so you can achieve your goals.
For the most part, weight loss wellness programs are tailored to your individual needs and preferences. No two patients are the same, so how we help you reach your ideal weight should be customized.
Our weight loss wellness program includes a combination of semaglutide and peptide therapy. We try to put every patient on semaglutide on at least one single peptide therapy because the results will be much more effective and efficient.
Semaglutide is a relatively new and recently FDA-approved injectable medication that helps aid in weight loss in both overweight and clinically obese adults. Although the drug has been used to treat Type 2 diabetes and its symptoms, semaglutide is now utilized to address weight loss in non-diabetic patients.
Semaglutide is a unique weight loss therapy that works by controlling hunger. It is administered via weekly injections and contains a GLP-1 receptor that helps to curb appetite. This therapy can be beneficial for those who have had trouble losing weight. However, it is not suitable for everyone and is only recommended for patients with a BMI of 27 or more or those with type 2 diabetes and clinically-diagnosed obesity.
Semaglutide injections, also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, are a type of GLP-1 therapy. These injections are particularly effective for those who have difficulty losing weight. Other GLP-1 drugs target appetite control, but semaglutide is one of the most well-known and widely advertised brands.
How Does a Weight Loss Program Work?
Weight loss wellness programs help you to achieve your weight loss goals healthily and sustainably. These programs typically consist of a mixture of tactics that can help with weight loss, including diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, and semaglutide and peptide therapy injections. Together, this approach creates results that you can maintain in the future.
Before embarking on a weight loss wellness program, you’ll need to undergo a full assessment so our team can review your medical history, current health status, and weight loss history and goals. This information provides us with the tools needed to create the most effective and personalized plan that fits your needs and, most importantly, your lifestyle.
Integrating semaglutide injections into the program helps patients quickly lose the weight that bothers them. But other vital nutrients may be used as well, including:
MIC (Methionine, Inositol, and Choline) are lipotropic nutrients that decrease fat deposits, speed up metabolism, and enhance liver function. Methionine is an essential amino acid that helps to break down fat, acts as an antioxidant, and promotes healthy skin, hair, and nails. Choline is a lipotropic amino acid that helps to lower cholesterol and improve mental performance. Inositol aids in fat metabolism and nerve transmission.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that helps the body turn fat into energy and improves endurance and muscle recovery during workouts. Vitamin B Complex contains B vitamins that help the body handle stress, increase energy, and optimize cardiovascular health. Vitamin B12 is vital as it increases alertness and supports healthy cellular growth.
These injections, known as Lipo C, help to release stored fat from the body, temporarily increase metabolic function, provide energy, improve mental clarity, and promote healthy skin, nails, and hair.
Overall, a weight loss wellness program is the best way to achieve healthy weight loss and focuses on overall health and well-being. While losing weight is vital to many patients, so is an improved quality of life.
More About Semaglutide
The way semaglutide injections work is different from other weight loss therapies and medications because it contains a GLP-1 receptor that works to curb and control hunger. By administering the medication via weekly injections, semaglutide can help kickstart the weight loss process and allow patients who have historically had trouble losing weight to drop the extra pounds.
Semaglutide works well for various people but is not appropriate for everyone. For example, the injections are not recommended for patients who are not clinically overweight with a BMI of 27 or more. The treatment is also effective in those with type 2 diabetes and clinically-diagnosed obesity.
The single-use pre-dosed injections start with a low amount of semaglutide, usually around .25 mg, and are adjusted gradually after the initial dose. The dose will likely be around 2.4 mg (if tolerated) by the fourth month. This slow yet steady increase allows semaglutide to continue to work as designed while helping to minimize the potential for side effects. The goal with semaglutide injections is to maintain weight loss, which may require you to stay on the medication for the long term. Customizable maintenance plans also help support weight loss and prevent you from gaining weight.
Everyone is different, and what one person may experience with semaglutide injections may vary with another. In clinical trials, most patients undergoing the injections lost up to 15% of their body weight (up to 20 pounds per month) compared to other weight loss medications. Of all the weight loss methods available today, semaglutide injections provide the most amount of weight loss possible. Most other treatments only offer 5 to 10% weight loss, but that amount is nearly double with the injections.
Semaglutide injections slow the transit of food within the intestinal tract to create the feeling of fullness for more extended periods. Since semaglutide reduces food cravings by limiting hunger and aiding in proper digestion by controlling the release of GLP-1, which the body naturally releases after eating. The injections give the body higher-than-average levels of GLP-1, so you feel fuller for longer. With fewer hunger cravings, the appetite is reduced, and less food is consumed.
Most patients who take semaglutide injections for weight loss see the initial results after the first two weeks. Then, as each dose is increased, weight loss continues and can be as much as 20 pounds per month. By the end of the treatment, most patients lose up to about 15% of their starting body weight.
The injections are painless and are administered with a small needle, so no numbing cream is needed. The injections can be done in the upper arms, inner thighs, or stomach (away from the belly button).
Who Is It For?
Semaglutide isn’t appropriate for everyone, but many people will benefit from this new medication. For the treatment to be successful, patients need to be overweight. Semaglutide is effective in patients who have type 2 diabetes as well as those with true clinically-diagnosed obesity. Obesity is defined as anyone whose health is at risk due to their weight and anyone with a BMI over 30.
Those who are considered appropriate candidates for semaglutide may be able to lose 15 percent of their overall body weight. Semaglutide is not a suitable treatment for:
Medullary Thyroid cancer
Multiple endocrine neoplasias
People with type 1 diabetes
People with type 2 diabetes already taking a GLP-1 medication
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
Besides weight loss, people taking semaglutide have also experienced more significant improvements in cardiovascular risk factors like BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. In addition, it’s known that weight loss is linked to increased energy, decreased joint pain, improved mobility, better sleep, and better self-esteem.

|Slows down eating
|A feeling of fullness
|Suppressed appetite and food cravings

Semaglutide has helped most people with obesity lose at least 10 percent of their body weight, and more than half of them reduced their weight by at least 15 percent, according to results published in February 2021 in the New England Journal of Medicine. The time it takes to lose weight depends on an individual’s commitment to lifestyle changes. Most healthcare professionals say that losing 15% of your body weight can help reduce the risk of future chronic illnesses.
How Much Does a Weight Loss Program Cost?

The treatment is tailored to your needs, which is why the cost varies. Our team can customize a package to help you obtain the desired results. A consultation with our staff will ensure more accurate pricing.
Every little bit counts. Movement plays a prominent role in caloric burn and muscle building to increase the effects of any weight loss program. A clean diet will help produce better, longer-lasting results.
Your weight loss goals depend on how long you must follow the program. Of course, we always take lifestyle into the equation.
No, you should not feel tired or experience a lack of energy while taking semaglutide.
Common side effects may include decreased appetite in the first few days after the injection and usually return to normal before the next injection. Some users may also experience nausea, constipation, diarrhea, belching, heartburn, and abdominal cramping. To minimize the likelihood of these effects, start on a low dosage and gradually increase it based on tolerance.
