Weight Loss

How can I benefit from weight loss?

If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, you may be considered obese, which increases your chances of potentially dangerous chronic health conditions, such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Respiratory problems
  • Stroke
  • High cholesterol
  • Sleep apnea

Losing just 5% of your overall weight can significantly reduce your chances of developing these conditions and relieve your symptoms if you already have a weight-related condition.

Along with the health benefits of healthy weight loss, it can also improve your self-esteem, boost your energy levels, and reduce anxiety and depression. 

Why would I need weight loss treatments?

Many Americans struggle to lose weight on their own. Genetics, lifestyle choices, physical inactivity, and a poor diet can all lead to unintended weight gain. Once you get into those habits, it’s difficult to stop without help.

Dr. Farricielli treats all types of obesity. Whether you’re a breakfast skipper who ends up overeating later in the day, a serial snacker who overeats all day, or an evening binger who binges exclusively during and after dinner, Dr. Farricielli has a weight loss plan for you.

What are the different types of weight loss treatments?

When you’re struggling with obesity, Dr. Farricielli understands that diet and exercise alone may not be enough to give you the significant weight loss you need to stay healthy and fit. While a healthy, low-calorie diet and regular exercise habits are the cornerstones of any weight loss plan, Dr. Farricielli offers a helping hand to help you meet your fitness goals.

Phentermine, which is sold under the brands Adipex-P and Lomaira™, is an amphetamine-like prescription medication that suppresses your appetite to help control cravings. It decreases your hunger and makes you feel fuller for longer periods of time.

When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, phentermine can help you achieve significant weight loss without surgery or fad diets.
