There is a lot of false and misguided information about there about appetite suppressants. Let us banish some of those myths for you and help you make a more informed decision about your next step towards losing weight.

What are Appetite Suppressants and How Do They Work?

Appetite suppressants fall in the “anorectic” drug class. Simply put, they put the brakes on your appetite so your brain thinks your full and represses the desire to eat. When your brain tells your stomach that you’re full, you won’t be as hungry as often and you’ll be able to significantly decrease the number of calories you consume in a day. Appetite suppressants also help when you do eat by making you feel fuller, faster. Decreased calories are a key part of losing weight and appetite suppressants help provide support during mealtimes.

Appetite Suppressants are a Vehicle, Not a Destination

It’s important to note that appetite suppressants are designed to supplement a healthy diet plan, not replace it entirely. New Health Kansas works with all of our clients to come up with a diet that is supervised by a physician and then we continue your education with nutritional counseling. We never want you to feel like you’re alone or have to only rely on suppressants to lose weight. Part of the concierge weight loss program is finding the right fit for you. You can’t do that without the proper guidance and support - that’s where we come in.

Choose What’s Right For You

Lastly, appetite suppressants aren’t magic. They are only able to keep up as long as the person using them does so in the right way. Increased exercise is always recommended in every weight loss plan because you should be burning more calories than you consume in order to fight back against fat. That’s why we provide nutritional counseling and guide you through your wellness plan - to help you make healthy choices and stay away from hindering your progress. You can’t have a burger every day just because you’re on appetite suppressants. You can, however, make consciously healthy choices that will make you feel better physically and mentally.
