All diets basically do one thing: decrease your calorie intake. The body’s natural response to lower caloric intake is to increase the appetite. So the success of the dieter literally hinges on their ability to control the appetite. If you control the appetite, you control your weight!
If you have ever failed with dieting, it was likely because you did not properly address the issue of hunger. At Solutions Weight Loss, we recognize the importance of appetite control during phase 2 of the HCG diet when patients are restricted to 800 calories. For this reason, Dr. Newsome often will prescribe Adipex-P (Phentermine 37.5mg) to suppress the appetite.
Adipex–P (Generic Name: Phentermine)
Adipex-P is an FDA approved prescription medication used to suppress the appetite. It is a powerful stimulant that, when combined with diet and exercise, accelerates weight loss by decreasing your hunger and making you feel full longer. Several medical studies have found that short-term Adipex-P administration induced significant weight reduction and reduction of waist circumference without clinically problematic adverse effects on relatively healthy obese people. You cannot take Phentermine if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have glaucoma, an overactive thyroid, uncontrolled blood pressure or heart disease in our Solutions Weight Loss Clinic. We will not put your health at risk with this type of medication. These conditions combined with appetite suppressants may have serious side effects.
If you are unable to use Phentermine, we have alternative appetite suppressants that may work for you.
