feet-on-scalePhentermine

Oral phentermine Hydrochloride (HCL) is sold for weight loss. It is in the Sympathomimetic family of appetite suppressants (used for the short-term management of exogenous obesity.)

When used in conjunction with diet, exercise, and behavior therapy, phentermine may help you to lose weight while you are learning new ways to eat and to exercise.

How does Phentermine work?

  •  Phentermine works by stimulating the hypothalamus gland and affecting certain neurotransmitters to decrease the appetite.
  •  The hypothalamus is the region of the brain that controls the autonomic nervous system, regulating sleep cycles, body temperature, appetite, etc.
  •  Phentermine should NOT be used as a substitute for proper diet or exercise. For maximum effects, it must be used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and/or exercise.
  •  Any modifications in your diet, activity level, and behavior must be developed and continued long-term in order to continue losing weight and prevent the lost weight from returning.

 

weightHCG – Human Chorionic Gonadotropin

This hormone is produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. HCG works to burn abnormal fat stores when combined with a specific low calorie diet. On average you burn an extra 2,000 to 4,000 calories a day from your abnormal fat stores. HCG also works to reset your metabolism through it’s effects on the hypothalamus, which helps ensure weight stays off.
