Losing weight is one of the hardest things in the world to do. Well, let's face it, if you're a guy it's much easier than it is for us girls. We all lead busy lives, eat fast food, and think we're too tired to exercise when we get home. Plus no one really watches their portion sizes with meals. Let's face it, life is stressful! Food is used for comfort and it tastes good!
What we all need is a lifestyle change! So many of us yo-yo up and down with our weight. At Sei Bella we have come up with a plan to help you focus on good eating habits, modest exercise and medication to help you get over the hump and help with those cravings.
The newest weight loss medication available is called Contrave. This is a combination of buproprion, also known by it's brand name Wellbutrin, and naltrexone. These medications both help with the craving for foods and your appetite but they are not stimulants and are not controlled substances. Contrave is also indicated for long term use, unlike other weight loss medications. Buproprion alone helps with cravings and is marketed as Zyban for smoking cessation.
In addition to the Contrave, you can also add HCG drops and we will instruct you on a modified HCG diet. HCG helps to preferentially burn belly fat. HCG drops are available by prescription from a couple local pharmacies, and it is dosed under the tongue twice a day.
Often people understand what they are supposed to do when they are IN the office, but once they LEAVE the office, they don't know what to shop for at the grocery store. To help, we have developed a grocery list for you, some sample diet plans and a "goody bag" to show you some of the foods we are talking about.
One of the biggest benefits of this program is the free scale you receive from Takeda for enrolling in their ScaleDown program. This electronic scale has a value of $100 and will sync with your phone to send you text messages when you weigh. Takeda also has a very nice discount card for you to use on the Contrave.
