You’ll begin with a consultation with a member of our team. Consultations are FREE and performed by a nurse or counselor with a psychology degree. Medical necessity letters can be issued due to obesity or a health condition caused by being overweight. Medical weight loss can be deducted from taxes depending on your tax return.
A prescription appetite suppressant is usually prescribed by the medical provider during a physical. Labs (labs are paid by your insurance company) are run before starting a complete program. No food supplements are sold at Slimming Solutions nor do we pressure you into buying vitamins. The program consists exclusively of regular food.
The prescription reduces cravings and helps curb your appetite. Weekly visits in office or over the internet with a nurse and/or counselor. Weekly Behavior Modification lessons will give you tips and tools needed to combat the never-ending head hunger and teach you about exercise and nutrition. Daily online meal planning from a list of several different diet plans, grocery lists, exercise, nutrition guidelines, and tools to rid of the weight indefinitely.
Each week during the program, you’ll participate in a weekly visit to the practice. Weekly visits will include a counseling session and/or vitals. We provide you with tools on coping skills whether it is stress, sadness, boredom, or other reasons causing you to overeat. The visits can vary, it just depends on your needs.
Anyone who wants to lose any amount of weight can be a candidate for the program. Whether you are just needing to drop a few pounds, get back on track, fit back into your favorite jeans or wanting to take control of a long term problem with your weight, Slimming Solutions can help. The owners, Joi and David lost over 150 pounds combined in 2010 and have kept it off. Your program will be tailored to you so you achieve your goals in the best fashion possible.

This is an ongoing program, so you will remain in the program until you reach your weight loss goal, and then will continue to come back occasionally for check-ins with the team. The Slimming Solutions weight loss team will give you exact instructions on the exact timeframe of your weight loss program, as it will vary depending on how much weight you want to lose and other factors, such as your gender and lifestyle.
Over the course of your program, you will see steady, consistent weight loss, and in turn, begin to feel the effects of losing weight from a health perspective. Many patients report feeling less fatigued, more energetic, and like they’ve received a whole new life.
There are a few things to keep in mind with the results of a weight loss program:
Hair Loss: If you are not consuming enough calories it may make you tired and cause hair loss. It is important for anyone starting a diet to seek advice from a medical professional. You may have an untreated disease or other health conditions that may need to be watched while losing weight.
Plateauing: When you first start losing weight you are at your heaviest and consuming way too many calories. As you get closer to your goal weight, it takes a lot fewer calories to hit your goal due to lesser weight and taking in fewer calories than you were before.
Losing Muscle While Losing Weight: If you restrict calories too much your body will look for other resources for energy so this can occur. It is important you know how many calories you need to lose weight safely.
Affecting Your Face & Skin: Losing weight reduces fat everywhere in your body. Many people say they look older after weight loss. There are ways to help keep you looking fresh. Skin tightening is a favorite of our clients to keep skin tight on face and body.
We have seen thousands of clients lose weight and have kept it off just like the owners, Nurse Joi and David. We don’t use fad diets, strict calories counting, and we don’t instill certain foods as being bad. All food is ok, but it is not ok to overeat. Our program consists of regular food from the store or a restaurant. We send you daily text support and/or emails that have food lists and menus to choose from.
Since this is an ongoing treatment, there is no specific downtime associated with medical weight loss. You can maintain your normal life activities while going through the program.
All prescriptions come with side effects but ours is a compounded prescription and there have been no reports of side effects by our patients. Our weight loss prescription helps change the mindset on wanting food. This medication helps you not to overeat or crave the foods you crave. Phentermine does come with many side effects mainly agitation and loss of sleep. Over the counter diet pills come with a risk. They are not regulated by the FDA.
After smoking, obesity is America’s biggest cause of premature death: 70% heart disease, after smoking the greatest cause of cancer, and 80% type 2 diabetes is relating to being overweight. Being obese impacts on your health are hypertension, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gallbladder diseases, osteoarthritis, strokes, respiratory diseases, and cancers.
Obesity can also cause arthritis. Extra weight puts extra stress on joints. Many people with knee and back problems are usually caused by being overweight. Many clients who lose weight say their pain is lessened or gone and are able to move about more easily.
