It's the never-ending battle that some of us have dealt with for years: excess weight. Dieting is hard work. So why do we bounce around from diet to diet? Oftentimes, it’s because we gained the weight back or gave up because we weren't seeing the results we wanted. Many of us have been through this scenario, losing the weight, keeping it off for a while, then putting it right back on.
Those who are trying to achieve weight loss are working towards a healthier lifestyle. We have all heard about the risks associated with being overweight, and weight management is a smart way to reduce risks and take care of your body.
Medical Weight Loss Options
When you combine healthy lifestyle choices with medical weight loss methods, you're likely going to see much greater results! People who combine both a healthy lifestyle with medical weight loss methods have been known to lose 3-9% more of their beginning body weight than those just making lifestyle changes. Results vary by medications used and by person, but research shows that many lose 10% or more of their starting weight.
Losing 5-10% of your starting body weight can result in lowering your blood pressure, blood sugar, and triglycerides. It can also improve joint pain, sleep apnea, and other health problems.
Transformyou offers a range of medical weight loss options so that everyone can find the right method (or combination of methods) for their body type, goals, and health needs. Options include enhanced diets, injectables, and appetite suppressants. We also offer VASER Shape, a non-invasive alternative to liposuction. You can learn more about these options below!
Diet & Weight Management
The two varieties of diet and weight management we work with most frequently are the HCG diet and Ultra Lite.
The HCG Diet is the use of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) combined with a low calorie diet.
Ultra Lite is a health and weight management system that teaches you how to eat, when to eat, and what to eat to convert your body over to burning fat.
Weight loss injections provide a number of benefits in addition to supporting weight loss. Our options include B12/MIC, B12 Complex, and Glutathione.
Liraglutide, also called Victoza and Saxenda, is known for its ability to improve blood-sugar control, and is also available as a weight loss medication.
Learn more about the injections and medications available here.
You may find that appetite suppressants are just the thing needed to kick-start your weight loss and help you start reaching your goals. Appetite suppressants are currently the most used drug for weight loss. When taken correctly and combined with the right lifestyle changes, suppressants produce dramatic results. Learn more about appetite suppressants here.
Transformyou is now offering VASER Shape! This revolutionary alternative to liposuction is not only changing the way people look, it is changing the way they feel about themselves. Learn more about the VASER technology and therapy now available to transformyou patients here!

Understanding Healthy Weight, Overweight, and Obesity
Let's be honest, understanding what a healthy weight is in comparison to being overweight or obese can be difficult. Most health care providers gauge weight in relation to your height to define a healthy or unhealthy weight. This is known as using the Body Mass Index (BMI). Individuals that have a BMI between 25 and 30 are typically considered to be overweight, and those with a BMI of 30 or greater are considered to be obese.
However, BMI is not the most reliable way to gauge a persons health or whether or not they are at a healthy weight. According to Medical News Today, BMI "is an inaccurate measure of body fat content and does not take into account muscle mass, bone density, overall body composition, and racial and sex differences." At Transformyou, we take a different approach than most health care providers and gauge your health by taking all of those factors into account that BMI doesn't to provide you with the right medical weight loss options for your needs.
Medical weight loss options are designed for people who have health problems related to being overweight or obese, and for people who have made all the right lifestyle changes but can't shed those few extra pounds, or for people who need a little help kickstarting their weight loss to reach their goals. Whatever your reason for wanting to lose weight, it's important to know what options you have available to you (that won't jeopardize your health like many of the OTC weight loss options out there).
Medical Weight Loss is Not Meant to Replace a Healthy Lifestyle
One of the common misconceptions about medical weight loss is that you can use it to replace living a healthy lifestyle. It cannot. In order to see the greatest short-term and long-term results, you must dedicate yourself to incorporating physical activity into your week and healthy eating habits. You don't have to be doing everything right when you begin (and end) your medical weight loss journey, but you must be making an effort to live a healthier lifestyle. Just start somewhere and begin to build those healthy habits for better health.
