Our Approach to Weight Loss

Losing weight can be difficult and it's not just about losing fat but becoming healthy. LifeSynergy won't sell you meal replacements or fad diets. These plans are not sustainable. The body’s natural response to restricted calories is to think it’s starving and goes into fat-saving mode which lowers the metabolism. Then when the person is ‘off the diet’, the weight comes back. At LifeSynergy we will work with you to create life-long changes and healthier eating habits, no counting calories or tracking points. Stop dieting and start living!

 Semaglutide, Tirzepatide

Semaglutide (active ingredient in Ozempic) belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, or GLP-1 RAs. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone, released in the gut in response to eating. One role of GLP-1 is to prompt the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood sugar (glucose). For that reason, health care providers have used semaglutide for more than 15 years to treat Type 2 diabetes. An early study of 2,000 obese adults compared people using semaglutide plus a diet and exercise program with people who made the same lifestyle changes without semaglutide. After 68 weeks, half of the participants using semaglutide lost 15% of their body weight, and nearly a third lost 20%. Participants who incorporated only lifestyle changes lost about 2.4% of their weight.

 

Tirzepatide (active ingredient in Mounjaro and the recent FDA-approved Zepbound) is a GLP-1 RA and GIP RA, a dual-agonist because it activates two receptors at the same time. The weight loss data from the tirzepatide clinical trials have been stunning.  People who used the largest dose of tirzepatide, 15 milligrams, lost as much as 21% of their body weight.

 

When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, these medications can cause significant weight loss — and a reduced risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease — in people who are obese or overweight. Not only do these medications help with weight loss, but they also improve appetite control, reduce binge eating episodes and even reduce alcohol and drug cravings. With improved hunger control (and possibly even self-control), those who undergo GLP-1 therapy or dual-therapy can make better choices when it comes to meal planning and snacking. And with fewer binge eating episodes, individuals can break free from the vicious cycle of overeating and guilt. Overall, the benefits of GLP-1 and dual-therapy can lead to a healthier, happier lifestyle for those struggling with weight management.

 

Each monthly prescription includes:

  • 1 weekly injection of semaglutide or tirzepatide

  • B12 injection

  • Weekly check-in to monitor progress

  • Office visit

  • No contracts or membership fees

Appetite Suppressants

Phentermine (Adipex-P, Lomaira) is a FDA-approved prescription medicine used to lessen appetite. It can help weight loss by making you less hungry. Or it can help you feel full longer. On average patients can experience 1-2 lb weight loss weekly. 

Qsymia is an FDA-approved prescription weight loss medication that includes phentermine and topiramate. It has been approved for children

ages 12-17. In clinical trials patients lost an average of 15 lbs after 3 months.

Contrave is an FDA-approved prescription weight loss medication that includes bupropion and naltrexone. Contrave helps control appetite and

curb cravings. In clinical trials patients lost an average of 8% total body weight.

Sermorelin

Sermorelin is an FDA-approved secretagogue that stimulates the pituitary gland to release Human Growth Hormone (hGH).

Sermorelin injections can be used in Growth Hormone Restoration to optimize hGH levels in the body.

Why does less hGH affect us so much? Since hGH is responsible for healing, recovery, and cell generation, it plays a large factor in aging. When we’re in our early twenties, our bodies typically generate a new cell for each one that dies. When we reach our fifties, we only regenerate an average of one new cell for every two that die. By the time we turn 70, only one cell is replaced for every three to four that die.

Since our bodies don’t repair themselves and replace those cells as well when we grow older, we see symptoms of aging like:

  • Cognitive decline

  • Weight gain, increase in fat

  • Difficult healing from injury, exercise, and surgery

  • Less muscle growth

  • Delicate bones

  • More frequent injuries

  • Losing height

Reported benefits of Sermorelin injections include:

  • Sleeping better and having more energy

  • Improved body composition, with less fat and more muscle

  • Faster healing and recovery after exercise, injury, and/or surgery

  • Improved cognition and better memory

  • Elevated mood and relief from depression
