Our Medical Weight Loss Programs
Dr. Derek Muse is our acting physician and he is board certified in obesity medicine. This means Dr. Muse knows how to prescribe the right medication to help you with weight loss. At our office in Salt Lake City, we can prescribe Adipex (Phentermine), Tenuate (Diethylpropion), Qsymia (Phentermine-Topiramate ER), Naltrexone-Bupropion (Contrave), Liraglutide (Saxenda), Belviq (Lorcaserin) and Topamax (Topiramate). These appetite suppressants help you eat the right amount of food to fuel your body, rather than overeating. This is just one of many weight loss options at our clinic.
LAP-BANDS and other laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands are popular ways to lose weight. Dr. Muse adjusts a silicone band around your stomach to slow food consumption and make sure less food is eaten and more weight is lost.
Very Low-Calorie Diet
When you’re trying to lose weight, the number of calories consumed needs to be less than the number of calories burned during exercise and throughout the day. Our Very Low-Calorie Diet limits patients to 800 calories per day to enhance weight loss. Many of our Bountiful patients will lose 2-3 pounds per week through the diet.
You shouldn’t put off losing weight. The risks of being overweight are extremely dangerous. If you live in Bountiful or another city in the Salt Lake Valley, contact Advanced Medical Weight Loss and start getting healthy.
