Today, many adults struggle with weight loss as they battle the demands of life, stress, managing a healthy diet, and finding time to exercise. Even when we do everything “right”, it can be hard to shed the pounds and make lasting behavior changes when we don’t see immediate results. In addition, aging and the slowing down of our bodies’ metabolism decrease the likelihood that we’ll keep the weight off.
At Body Works, our goal is to help you lose weight in a safe, effective manner through healthy behaviors, a low-calorie diet, and medical weight loss treatments. By combining these methods, you can lose up to 10% more weight than if you simply made a few lifestyle changes with no medical intervention. By choosing a medical weight loss program that’s right for you, you can reduce the risk of chronic illness, increase energy, and improve your overall health and mood.
How do you know which medical weight loss program is right for you? Our treatments are designed for people who are experiencing difficulties shedding extra pounds, no matter how hard they try. Or, perhaps you have a medical condition or genetic history that interferes with weight loss. Whatever the obstacle, our trained staff of medical experts will work with you to figure out what plan is right for your lifestyle and weight loss goals.
Semaglutide, also marketed under the brand names Wegovy and Ozempic, it is an FDA-approved injectable for weight loss that mimics the actions of GLP-1, a hormone that targets specific areas of the brain known to suppress hunger. The ideal candidates for semaglutide are people with a BMI of 30 or greater or a BMI of 27 or greater and a medical condition made worse by obesity. Semaglutide is used as part of a lifestyle modification.
Semaglutide (generic Wegovy) has shown even more powerful effects than other medications in its class, potentially because of its increased dose. People who take semaglutide have altered food preferences, resulting in lower calorie consumption. In clinical trials, users lost an average of 35 pounds. Semaglutide has exceeded the expectations of traditional weight loss medications and will have transformational results for any individual looking to lose weight.
At Body Works in Franklin and Nolensville, our peptide therapy program can help kick your metabolism into high gear causing your fat cells to start shrinking effortlessly. Peptides are amino acid sequences found in the body that provide specific metabolic functions meaning they will help elicit a hormonal response. Research suggests that peptides can increase metabolism and burn fat for both men and women, which has been a major breakthrough in modern weight loss treatments. Peptides have taken the weight loss community by storm and provide effective solutions that can be used long term with no adverse side effects!
By working with our trained professionals, you can avoid scams and cheap quality peptide products within the weight loss industry. Our medical-grade peptide injections use personalized doses in conjunction with a low-calorie diet to help you lose weight effectively and safely.
Our weight loss clinic also offers appetite suppressants, which are prescription treatments that can help kickstart your weight loss journey.
Appetite suppressants affect the hypothalamus in the brain by increasing serotonin and catecholamine and blocking sensations of hunger. Research has shown that patients can lose up to 5-10% of their body weight when using an appetite suppressant and reduce their emotional dependence on food.
There are many over-the-counter suppressants that are not medically regulated or approved by the FDA. Body Works uses Phentermine, an FDA-approved prescription appetite suppressant that has proven, thoroughly researched results. We offer Phentermine in varying strengths, a time-released Phentermine, and a Phentermine-Topamax combination. Our professionals will help you choose the prescription that is right for you.
In addition to your prescription, we will guide you on diet, exercise, and behaviors to sustain long-term weight loss in a healthy way. Rather than losing weight fast and resorting to unhealthy behaviors, our appetite suppressant weight loss program helps you lose 1-2 pounds a week while keeping your metabolism and hormones balanced.
Lipotropic injections are safe, minimally invasive injections that give you a large dose of essential vitamins and nutrients to help you burn fat and lose weight. Lipo injections include vitamins B12, methionine, choline, and inositol, which act quickly as the body absorbs these nutrients rapidly. As with all other weight loss treatments, lipo injections should be used in combination with a low-calorie diet and healthy levels of activity for best results.
