Weight Loss Q & A

How does weight loss improve my health?

Fat cells actively release hormones and other biochemicals that cause body-wide inflammation and significantly raise your risk of developing:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease

Being overweight also adds to your chance of developing certain cancers.

What should I expect from the Ideal Protein weight loss program?

Ideal Protein is a doctor-designed, ketogenic weight loss plan that uses food as medicine. Your program includes a personal coach who provides expert guidance and information, keeps you motivated, and offers encouragement.

The Ideal Protein program follows three stages:

Phase I: Weight Loss

During this phase, you reset your body to burn fat and lose weight by limiting carbohydrate consumption. Following a low-carb diet forces your body to burn fat for energy, a condition called ketosis.

The process is easy to follow with Ideal Protein’s prepared meals, snacks, recipes, and food lists. You stay in this phase until you reach your weight loss goal.

Phase II: Stabilization

This phase is all about resetting your mind to maintain your healthy weight and building lifelong habits that support your well-being. Your personal coach helps you slowly reintroduce carbs and healthy fats back into your diet. 

You also get a customized plan outlining the number of macronutrients you should consume to maintain your weight and manage hunger.

Phase III: Maintenance

The goal of phase III is resetting the possibilities and living your best, healthiest life. During maintenance, you still get education and support from your coach for one year. In most cases, you only need to connect through an app and use a Wi-Fi scale to track your weight.

What additional services can I add to my weight loss program?

Prime Wellness offers additional services to support your weight loss, including:

Weight loss medication

Your provider prescribes medications that reduce your hunger and control cravings. Some medications suppress your appetite, while others are especially effective for emotional eaters.

Lipo-B shots

Lipotropic shots contain three amino acids that help your liver burn fat and vitamin B12 to boost your energy. Lipotropic shots enhance your body’s fat-burning ability when combined with diet and exercise.

Your chances of weight loss success are better with medical support and a personal coach. To learn more, call Prime Wellness or book an appointment online today.
