What Can You Eat on the Medical Weight Loss Diet?

Schedule Appointment 

The Aspen Clinic has helped many people lose weight by focusing on long-term positive lifestyle changes. Because there are many nutritional and health factors that accompany lifestyle changes and healthy weight loss for women and men, we find it best to have a qualified physician review our client’s personal information and analyze their nutritional needs. 

Oftentimes, medication is used to help assist the lifestyle changes to aid in weight loss. Of course, this medication needs to be monitored closely.

This medication, like all medicine, is tightly controlled, and what you are eating needs to be monitored, too! 

There is no “one size fits all” meal plan for medical weight loss. Our Medical Program includes:

  • Nutritional Counseling: blood pressure monitoring, body composition analysis, meal plans
  • Nutrition Orientation (1st visit only)
  • Meeting with a qualified physician to discuss appetite control medication as an aid to weight loss journey
  • Free weekly weigh-ins (optional)
  • Supplements and vitamin injections (optional)

Nutritional counseling and meal plans are personally catered to you and your body. The Aspen Clinic is happy to help you determine what is safe and effective to eat while on your medical weight loss journey!

Do B12 Injections Help With Fatigue?

Yes, B12 injections offered at the Aspen Clinic can help with fatigue. B12 injections provide energy and even help with deeper sleep. Most people don’t realize that they are actually deficient in B vitamins so when you replenish your body with these nutrients, it results in an energy boost. Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for the body and is needed to protect DNA and RNA, support energy, protect nerve and brain cells, stimulate serotonin production, contribute to red blood cell formation, support immune function, and maintain a positive mood. Schedule an appointment today with the Aspen Clinic of Louisiana to get your B12 injection and make fatigue a thing of the past. 

Benefits of B12 Injections

The body needs B12 to create energy, which creates a boost in energy, mental clarity and focus, and improved mood. Vitamin B12 can treat anemia, help with the production of creatine, which is beneficial for building muscle mass and reducing muscle weakness.

Research indicates that methylcobalamin can modulate melatonin secretion, enhance light-sensitivity, and normalize circadian rhythm (your body’s 24-hour clock). Because of this, individuals supplementing this form of B12 often report improved quality of sleep, often will require slightly less sleep, and will not uncommonly report that they feel a bit more refreshed when waking in the morning.

Not only do our B12 injections provide energy and help fight fatigue, they also help in metabolizing fats and protein which in turn helps boost your metabolism and increases weight loss. Proper utilization of fat, protein, and carbohydrate intake can also help with appetite control.

One of the primary reactions of methylcobalamin in the body is to convert homocysteine to methionine – high homocysteine levels are undesirable and known to be an indicator of heart disease and stroke risk due to the fact free homocysteine in the blood causes sclerosis of the arteries, putting strain on the vascular system and the heart.

The conversion of homocysteine to methionine reduces the potential for damage because the reaction results in the formation of the super-antioxidant glutathione. Glutathione is the body’s master detoxifier and the body’s main antioxidant, protecting our cells from damage.

Our B12 injections are recommended in weekly doses.

Benefits of The Aspen Clinic B-Complete Supplement

Schedule Appointment 

B vitamins play many essential roles in energy metabolism in the body. The Aspen Clinic’s B-Complete supplement consists of eight water-soluble vitamins needed by the body: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9, and B12. B Vitamins are essential for weight loss, brain development, nerve function, hormone production/regulation, stress reduction and maintaining vitality. In addition to providing key enzymes for energy, the vitamins & minerals from this complex are designed to help you with the synthesis of RNA, DNA and red blood cells.

We recommend the B-Complete to all patients who take the injections, because all of our injections are B-Vitamin based. When the B-Complete is taken in combination with the injections, it allows the B-Vitamins to be given to the body on a daily basis which will enhance the effects of the injections and help them last a little longer!

Normally we think of vitamin B deficiencies as leading to fatigue, anemia and long periods of low energy, but now we understand that they also helps in weight loss! B vitamins go hand-in-hand with losing weight because of their ability to help your body metabolize proteins, fats and carbohydrates. In other words, these vitamins help convert the food you eat into energy and additionally help with appetite control.

There is a direct correlation to a deficiency in these vitamins and obesity. It is a known fact that these vitamins cannot be stored by your body, so you have to include them in your diet on a daily basis in order to maintain proper functionality. Processed food, overcooked vegetables and alcohol consumption can destroy or limit the body’s ability to get these important vitamins. Eating a healthier diet can certainly help the body increase the chance of absorbing these nutrients, though with our depleted soils, GMO foods and toxic chemicals being used to treat crops, it may be necessary to take a vitamin supplement in addition to clean eating.

  • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) helps the heart and other muscles function properly, and facilitates nerve health.
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) helps the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, and prevents the conversion of unused energy into fat. With folate, it can help hypothyroid, by providing key nutrients that act as “thyroid food”.
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) helps maintain healthy thyroid hormone production.
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) helps control fat metabolism and digestion.
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) is required for the metabolism of proteins and carbohydrates and acts as a mild diuretic.
  • Vitamin B8 (Biotin) improves blood-sugar control and improves the hair, skin, and nails.
  • Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid) is involved in every bodily function that requires cell division and works in conjunction with B12 and Vitamin C to help the body digest and use proteins. Adequate levels of folic acid ensure that protein is metabolized properly, which helps the body maintain a stable insulin level. Keeping a consistent insulin level means that your body will immediately burn fat it gets from food instead of storing it, increasing weight loss.
  • Vitamin B-12 is required for proper red blood cell function as well as DNA synthesis and helps convert your body’s fat and protein into energy, by turning the food that you eat into glucose, the body’s energy source.
  • Pairs well with the Diuretic Balance, Energy Clarity, and Aspen Injections
  • A Vitamin B deficiency can sabotage body systems responsible for weight management, which can lead to long-term weight control problems. Because deficiency in one of the B vitamins can affect other B vitamins, this can disrupt a person’s metabolism. B12 is essential for the metabolism of proteins and fats, but needs B-6 and folate to work correctly. B-6 also helps metabolize protein and B1 helps the body metabolize fat, protein, and carbohydrates. When the body’s natural balance is disrupted, it typically responds by slowing down your metabolism, conserving fat stores, and burning fewer calories throughout the day. A healthy metabolism ensures that the body processes fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and uses these nutrients for energy rather than storing them as fat.

Aspen Clinic’s B-Complete formula is abundant in selenium, iron, zinc, and yeast glucan which are all known to fortify the immune system; combined with the nutritional value of protein from essential amino acids, B vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, B-Complete is a natural source of daily energy.

Vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B8 (biotin), B9 (folic acid), B12 (methylcobalamin). Minerals: Potassium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Zinc Amino Acids: Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Cystine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Proline, Serine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine, Inorganic Ammonia.

Patient Testimonials: Injections

Don’t just take our word for it, here are some reviews of out weight loss injections from our patients: 

Charlotte, Aspen Clinic Harvey: “When I started, I was the heaviest I’ve ever been. I truly believe the injections were the key to my weight loss. I have lost 24 lbs and went down 3 sizes.”

Sheryl, Aspen Clinic Metairie: ” I’ve been very pleased with the products and support I’ve received from the Aspen Clinic in Metairie. I was halfway through my weight loss journey in January of 2019 when I reached a plateau. There is no doubt that the weekly injections I continue to receive not only got me over the hump, but helped me reach my goal. I’ve lost a total of 64 lbs, 34 during the period of January-August 2019, and I’ve gone from a size 16 to a size 4.”

Female Patient, Aspen Clinic Covington: “I decided to try the Aspen Clinic when traditional approaches to losing weight weren’t giving me the results I had hoped for. The injections and supplements gave me fast results, which helped “jumpstart” my motivation for lifestyle changes. To better my progress, I started attending the gym more regularly, which only improved my results. Overall, I would recommend the clinic to anyone looking for a great start to reaching their weight loss goals.”

Remember, there is no magic cure for weight loss. Injections help jumpstart and aid in weight loss, they do not do all the work for you!

How Supplements & Injections Aid in Weight Loss

Schedule Appointment 

The Aspen Clinic has helped many people lose weight by focusing on long-term positive lifestyle changes. Because there are many nutritional and health factors that accompany lifestyle changes and healthy weight loss for women and men, we find it best to have a qualified physician review our client’s personal information and analyze their nutritional needs. But how exactly do supplements and injections  work?

Benefits of Weight Loss Supplements & Injections 

According to Mayo Clinic, Most prescription weight-loss drugs work by decreasing appetite or increasing feelings of fullness which helps when adjusting to a new eating routine. 

When it comes to injections, proponents of vitamin based injections are known to give you more energy and boost your metabolism by replenishing vitamins your body may have been deficient in, helping you shed unwanted pounds. B-12 can also improve energy levels, better mood, deeper sleep, boost metabolism. 

Lipotropic injections speed up the removal of fat within the liver, decongests liver of fat and bile, reduces LDL and increases HDL cholesterol, breaks down fats and carbohydrates & a diuretic, promotes relaxation and decreases anxiety, promote regular insulin function, muscle building, training, and endurance.

Like vitamin injections, supplements can aid in weight loss by providing the body with nutrients it may be missing.  The different herbs and plants in the all natural Aspen Clinic supplement line have a multitude of functions including accelerating fat loss, boosting energy, mood, and metabolism, improving digestion and overall vitality. It is very important to choose all natural supplements, with ingredients the body can recognize, instead of the common ones at drug stores composed of synthetic chemicals.  

An important thing to remember is that there is no magic cure for weight loss. The medication and injections are to aid in the weight loss process, NOT to do all the work for you. The purpose of the medication is to suppress appetite, which aids in weight loss while you adjust to a new lifestyle of eating. If you take the medication and don’t adjust your lifestyle and eating habits, then you will not see the results on the scale. The most important thing for weight loss will always be to focus on cleaning up your unhealthy lifestyle habits.
