Peptide Therapy & Oral Supplements

While your body does produce its own peptides, applying additional peptides can have several benefits. This works because peptides essentially tell other cells to perform tasks, like a key that unlocks bodily processes. They can act as hormones, improve cell signaling, and, yes, play a part in weight loss. They can give you increased strength and energy, which can improve your workouts and help you burn more calories. They can also suppress appetite and improve metabolism. When we apply peptides in certain ways and formulations, we can target key areas we want to improve.

Our medical weight loss program will use two exciting new peptides that have been found to help people lose more weight than any other medicine on the market – semiglutide and tirzepatide. Recent research has revealed that these new medications are weight loss superstars – in one study, patients taking semiglutide lost 15-20% of their body weight over 68 weeks, compared to 2.4% in patients taking the placebo. Semiglutide, initially developed to treat type 2 diabetes, was FDA approved for weight management in 2021, the first since 2014. The medication can help balance out hormones like insulin, which may curb appetite and allow people to shed pounds by eating less. Tirzepatide is a similar type of insulin medication currently awaiting FDA approval for weight loss, and had similar weight loss results in a late-stage clinical trial. This study with over 2,500 participants showed that patients lost up to 52 pounds in 72 weeks. You will get a weekly peptide injection during the length of the program.

You’ll also be given a thermogenic supplement which contains natural ingredients designed to boost your metabolism and increase fat burning. The supplement we use is called Thermo Suppress, a power packed formula that will boost your fat metabolism, help control your appetite cravings and increase your physical and mental energy (and unlike many thermogenics, it does not contain caffeine). With the medical weight loss program at Limelight, Dr. Welden can also prescribe any additional supplements that you may need.

Body Composition Testing

We will both begin the program and regularly measure your progress and results with body composition testing. For this we use the InBody570, a professional tool for advanced body composition analysis. This will give us you Percent Body Fat, Skeletal Muscle Mass, BMR, plus Total Body Water, Visceral Fat assessment, and other vital measurements. Testing is fast, easy, and non-invasive—just stand on the device and hold the hand electrodes. Instead of empirical estimations based on age, sex, ethnicity, or body type, this Direct Segmental Multi-Frequency BIA technology measures body segments separately for an accurate analysis based on your unique body.

LipoB Injections

The Lipo-B (MIC) Injection is a specific mixture of compounds closely related to B-vitamins that may help to reduce excess fat in certain areas of the body, as well as increase metabolic activity and energy. When certain organs or systems within our bodies are not functioning to their full potential, certain side effects can be experienced, such as a lower metabolism, higher fat storage in specific areas, lower energy, and more. These issues can often be helped simply by introducing the right vitamins and amino acid compounds to help support the body. Lipo-B injections trigger the body’s natural ability to burn fats and calories. They help induce natural weight loss, unlike other invasive solutions like liposuction or plastic surgery.

ProLon Fast Mimicking

We will utilize the ProLon fast mimicking diet for this program. Fast mimicking is basically fasting with food – precision nutrition gives you essential nutrients but doesn’t activate your body’s food sensing system, so you stay in a fasting state and can accomplish the benefits of a prolonged fast in a short amount of time. The benefits of fast mimicking include cellular cleanup, enhanced clarity, and fat-focused weight loss, among other things. The ProLon Fast Mimicking Diet is based on over 20 years of scientific research funded by such institutions as the National Institutes of Health.

Medical Weight Loss FAQ

How is medical weight loss better than normal diet and exercise?
Medical weight loss has several advantages over normal diet and exercise. For one, your results will be overseen by Dr. Welden who will provide custom advice, supplements and peptides, and other advanced tools over the course of the program. Your progress will be monitored and regimented. Medical weight loss gives you access to a weight loss super toolkit that you would not be able to access on your own.

Who is a good candidate for medical weight loss?
If you’ve tried diet and exercise before on your own with no luck, or have trouble maintaining your results, this program can help. We can not only look “under the hood” at what might be keeping you from losing weight, but we can correct those imbalances.

How much weight will I lose?
We guarantee a minimum of 10 lbs lost over the 3-month program. However, most people will lose more if they follow the program exactly. Once you complete your initial assessment, we can give you more accurate estimate on what results you can realistically expect.

How does Venus Bliss help my results?
Body Contouring treatments in general are ideal for people with trouble spots resistant to diet and exercise. Typically, ideal patients have a BMI less than 32. Although not included in the price of the medical weight loss program, the Venus Bliss treatment is a great “finishing touch” after a successful weight loss program for any stubborn pockets of fat, cellulite, or other problem areas.
