He’s seen just about every faddish crash diet, unproven weight loss drug, and questionable herbal remedy available. They may offer short-lived success but, for permanent weight loss, there is no substitute for a sensible diet and exercise program.
That’s why Dr. Bell tailors weight loss programs to fit your individual needs and lifestyle. He uses a multimodal program, including diet modification, exercise, and prescription-strength appetite suppressants (if indicated). So, whether you just want to lose a few pounds, or you suffer from obesity, arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, thyroid or heart disease, Dr. Bell can help you get healthy and stay healthy.
At Dr. Bell Weight Loss & Preventative Care, we start with a comprehensive medical exam, including blood work and body composition analysis, conveniently performed in our office. Then, you’ll meet one-on-one with Dr. Bell to design a weight loss program that best fits your individual needs and lifestyle.
PRESCRIPTION-STRENGTH APPETITE SUPPRESSANTS
When prescribed and supervised by a licensed physician, optional prescription therapy can be a powerful ally in the fight against obesity. In fact, some prescription-strength appetite suppressants have been FDA-approved and used safely since the 1950s. When indicated, we may prescribe: Phentermine, Adipex-P, Bontril, Phendimetrazine, Tenuate, Diethylpropion, Qysimia, or Belviq.
VITAMIN B-12 & LIPOTOPIC INJECTIONS
Lipotopic injections are a combination of all-natural co-enzymes and amino acids designed to help you burn fat faster. Methionine, Inositol and Choline help to mobilize fat, while L-Carnitine increases the metabolism. These fat-burning shots can be combined with other weight loss programs and are administered once a week.
Vitamin B-12 injections boost your energy level and your metabolism, helping you to shed unwanted pounds quickly. The injections can be combined with other weight loss programs and are administered once a week in the convenience of our office. We offer Vitamin B-12 injections free to our patients.
MODIFIED MEAL REPLACEMENT (with optional prescription therapy)
Changing your diet and exercise habits can seem like a daunting task, when you’re already juggling a busy and often unpredictable schedule. That’s why, at Dr. Bell Weight Loss & Preventative Care, we offer our patients two healthful, science-based meal replacement options: ProtiDiet and Metagenics. Many patients find that these meal replacements help speed up weight loss and ease the transition to a healthier lifestyle, while others rely on them long-term to help balance a hectic, but healthy, lifestyle.
ProtiDIET: The Science of Protein
ProtiDIET is a revolutionary, protein-based weight loss method based on rigorous scientific research and allows for rapid fat loss, not muscular density. ProtiDIET meal replacements are available in bars and shakes.
Metagenics: Genetic Potential through Nutrition
Metagenics was founded to help you realize your best health possible by influencing what makes you unique—your genes. The research-based medical foods and turnkey programs help address your unique health needs for a higher level of personalized, lifetime wellness care. Medigenics meal replacements are available in bars and shakes.
Under proper supervision from a licensed physician, the HCG Diet can be a safe, effective way to shed that stubborn, extra fat. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by pregnant women. It substantially increases the body’s metabolic function, resulting in a daily loss of 1 to 2 lbs. of adipose fat tissu
e, rather than lean muscle. (Of course, everyone is different and results may vary.) HCG can be administered subcutaneously, meaning under the skin, or sublingually by placing an oral disintegrating tablet under the tongue. While the program is complemented by a low-carb, low-calorie diet, most people on the HCG diet report feeling satisfied, because HCG causes the body to release enough stored calories and fat to maintain the body normally. In addition, FDA-approved appetite suppressants are optional, when indicated by a licensed physician.
