If you already made an appointment for initial consultation its just three easy steps to your CMWL personalized weight loss plan:
1. Your Medical History
Your visit starts with the doctor asking for your medical history, including any prescription or over-the-counter medication you may be taking. It’s very important for your CMWL doctor to understand your overall health when designing your personalized plan.
2. Body Composition Analysis (BCA)
The doctor will ask you to step on a special scale that will give you a total breakdown of the percentages of fat, muscle, and water in your body. Your resting metabolism and blood pressure will also be taken. This gives your CMWL doctor a baseline of where you’ll start your weight loss plan.
3. Consultation with the Doctor
Finally, your Doctor will review your medical history and BCA results, and then will sit down to get to know you. This is the time to open up about your weight loss goals and challenges, and what you truly want to get out of a weight loss plan. In order for your CMWL Doctor to design your personalized plan, he or she needs to get to know the whole you.
At the end of your visit, you'll have a plan, personalized just for you! If you decide to move ahead with your personalized weight loss plan, you’ll not only be following a medically proven weight loss approach, but you’ll be building a relationship with your CMWL doctor, who will be your greatest support throughout the process.

Weight Loss Medications
We offer a wide variety of vitamins and natural appetite suppressants that do not contain ephedra. We also offer prescription diet pills. Weight loss medications have great efficacy. There is no “magic bullet” for weight loss. Medication is a “tool” to assist in the weight loss process.
In our practice, medications are prescribed only in conjunction with following a sensible calorie controlled nutrition plan. Taking medication while eating sensibly will greatly enhance the efficacy of the medication. They are many different medications to assist with the process, just as there are many different tools in a toolbox. You need to find the right tool for the right job. We’d have to evaluate you to see what medication would be most appropriate for you.
All the medications that we prescribe patents are FDA approved and fully endorsed by the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and the American Board of Bariatric Medicine. Moreover we use the top of the line, products, vitamins, and supplements. Our medications are 100% pharmaceutical grade.
Several safe and effective prescription medicines and natural supplements can be used to suppress hunger and add support to your dietary and lifestyle plan. Appetite suppressants do work, and can be very useful in kick-starting a diet. They also increase your metabolism, and your energy level. Prescription medications, for example, have been shown to increase weight loss by 50-100%.
The use of certain vitamins as catalysts involved with fat metabolism is an important part of our program.
Cobalamin or as it is better known, Vitamin B12, is one of the vital nutrients our bodies need in order to work properly. It is necessary to perform many of the body's more important tasks, including the making of DNA during cell division and the healthy formation of red blood cells.
Vitamin B12 is known as the "energy vitamin" because it gives a real energy boost. It is used to remedy fatigue and it speeds up the metabolism.
What is the link between Vitamin B12 and weight loss?
Our B12 shots are administered directly into the muscle, allowing for better absorption. Vitamin B12 causes the metabolism to speed up, which in turn increases weight loss.
Vitamin B12 shots give a tremendous boost of energy. This generally helps people to maintain their diets, and motivates them to exercise and increase physical activity.
Vitamin B12 also helps to fight stress and depression, symptoms which are sometimes associated with weight gain.
These are important vitamins in terms of weight loss, and they are often known as the 'stress' vitamins. Vitamins B3 and B6 are especially important because they help to supply fuel to cells, which are then able to burn energy. Vitamin B6 together with zinc is necessary for the production of pancreatic enzymes which help you to digest food. If your digestion is good, you will be much more likely to use your food efficiently, instead of storing it as fat.
Vitamins B2, B3 and B6 are necessary for normal thyroid hormone function production, so any deficiencies in these can affect thyroid function and consequently affect metabolism. B3 is also a component of the glucose tolerance factor which is released every time your blood sugar rises. Vitamin B5 is involved in energy production and helps to control fat metabolism.
As you can see, the B vitamins as a group are important and the best way to get them is in a good B-complex supplement.
Prescription Weight Loss Pills
Prescription weight loss pills are basically medications rather than supplements. They have a pretty solid background in their use as a way to lose weight and struggle obesity. There are several types of prescription weight loss pills according to the method of losing weight and solving relative tasks:
The most commonly used type of pills. They simply decrease our appetite or “cheating” our brain to feel full. That affection results in less consumption of food and thus losing weight. The most known appetite suppressant is Phentermine.
Weight loss pills with lipase inhibitors as a primary component are blocking the enzyme lipase which breaks down dietary fat. This prevents fat from being absorbed by our body and calorie intake reduces. Xenical is an example.
Prescription weight loss pills - what are the benefits?
