Medical Weight Loss Programs
Dr. Derek Muse is board certified in obesity medicine and knows how to prescribe the right medication to help you lose weight. Our office can prescribe Adipex (Phentermine), Tenuate (Diethylpropion), Qsymia (Phentermine-Topiramate ER), 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 our many options for weight loss in Draper, Utah.
LAP-BANDS and other laparoscopic adjustable gastric bands are a popular way to lose weight. Dr. Muse and his staff will attach the silicon band around your stomach, where it will slow down food consumption and lead to less food being eaten and more weight being shed.
Very Low-Calorie Diet
When trying to lose weight, it’s crucial that the number of calories taken in is less than the number of calories burned during exercise and throughout the day. Advanced Medical Weight Loss’s Very Low-Calorie Diet limits patients to 800 calories a day to increase weight loss. Many of our Draper patients have lost 2-3 pounds per week.
Don’t put off losing weight any longer. The risks of remaining overweight are real. If you live in Draper or another city in the Salt Lake Valley, call Advanced Medical Weight Loss today at 801-559-3848 and take control of your weight.
