Weight Loss Q & A

Why should I lose weight?

Our bodies are all uniquely designed to function best at a certain weight. Being overweight puts you at risk for a number of health complications, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Some forms of cancer
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis

How can you help with weight loss?

Improvements to your diet and exercise are the safest, effective, and long-lasting ways to reduce your weight and improve your health. 

The team at Atlantic Health & Wellness Center can work with you to devise a diet and exercise plan to achieve your weight loss goals while working with your unique preferences and lifestyle. This typically includes reducing the amount of calories you consume throughout your day, prioritizing nutrient-dense foods like fruits and vegetables, and increasing your physical activity.

In some cases, a weight loss medication drug can be an incredibly useful tool in helping you reach your weight loss goals. Phentermine is one of the most popular weight loss drugs in the world, and has been FDA-approved for short-term use since 1959. If you think that your weight loss journey would benefit from the assistance of any other weight loss medications, talk ta medical provider at Atlantic Health & Wellness Center so you can assess your options. 

How does phentermine work?

Phentermine is an “anorectic,” or appetite suppressant. It’s thought to work by increasing the levels of neurotransmitters in your brain, specifically norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, which help to decrease your feelings of hunger. It also increases your metabolism during the day and increases your energy levels. 

Phentermine has been clinically proven to boost fat loss. In some cases, patients can lose as much as 10% of their body fat over the course of a 12-week treatment. 

It’s important to note, however, that phentermine is a supplemental aid in your weight loss journey, and doesn’t replace the need for lifestyle changes. In order to keep your weight loss results, you’ll still need to keep your calorie intake reduced and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
