Oral phentermine Hydrochloride (HCL) is a prescription appetite suppressant. It’s helped individuals successfully and safely lose weight for over 30 years. As a short-term prescription medication, phentermine can boost your weight loss when paired with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy.

Phentermine Prescriptions Work?

Phentermine stimulates the hypothalamus gland (the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulates sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.) and affects certain neurotransmitters to decrease your appetite. When certain brain neurotransmitter levels increase, feelings of hunger decrease. As a result, you consume fewer calories, thus supporting weight loss.

Phentermine should NOT be a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It must instead partner with a well-balanced, nutritious diet, exercise, and behavior modification for maximum effects. Further, Fit MD’s other medical weight loss programs in Westminster and Wheat Ridge can also pair very well with phentermine.

Long-term modifications to your diet and activity levels are required to continue losing weight and/or prevent weight gain. Extensive research shows that exercise, a healthy diet, stress management, and adequate sleep are crucial to promoting better health. Without engaging in healthy lifestyle behaviors, you may reverse your progress.

Medical Weight Loss Programs

At Fit MD, we employ four pillars in every medical weight loss program. We aim to discover the root cause of your weight gain and help you understand the psychological factors preventing you from achieving the desired results. We’ll assess your complete medical history during your initial consultation to determine the next steps.

Our four pillars include the following:

  • Medication. Weight loss medications are not “one size fits all.” Depending on biological and physical factors, what works for some may be harmful to others. Therefore, we prescribe the medication that’s right for you (which may be phentermine) and monitor your progress.
  • Nutrition. At Fit MD, we make nutrition simple and easy to implement. Instead of focusing on the difficulty and complexity of calorie counting and food choices, we help you understand the emotional, physical, and mental components of both food and eating. Everyone’s needs differ, so we take an individualized approach.
  • Movement. The best exercise program for weight loss and maintenance is the one you enjoy and will stick to. Our team helps you find ways to move that fit into your lifestyle and pique your interest. We consider past injuries, experience, and goals to customize your plan.
  • Support. It isn’t easy to achieve any goal without support and encouragement. At Fit MD, we understand that the weight loss journey is challenging. We’re here to help you throughout the process.

Cognitive Function

Recent research reveals a groundbreaking discovery on the cognitive benefits of daily multivitamin supplements. The comprehensive COcoa Supplement and Multivitamin Outcomes Study (COSMOS) trial, comprising three separate studies, confirms that a daily multivitamin intake can significantly slow down global cognitive aging by an estimated equivalent of two years compared to a placebo.

Published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the meta-analysis involved 5,000 participants, including a subset of 573 who underwent in-depth assessments over two years. The results provide compelling evidence that a daily multivitamin, containing over 20 essential micronutrients, has the potential to prevent memory loss and support healthier cognitive aging. This groundbreaking revelation offers a promising and accessible avenue for individuals concerned about preserving brain health as they age.

We thank you for trusting your medical care to Fit MD.  We will always do our very best to keep you on the cutting edge of living optimized!
