The diets that I use in the office are specifically designed to be followed with appetite suppressant medication and anti-craving medication. My quick weight loss programs are in general, way too low in calories, for most patients to follow without safe and effective medication support. There’s a new medication that was just approved and released in the U.S. (it’s been available in Europe), that takes some of the sugar out of the bloodstream, and shunts it into the urine. This significantly diminishes your hunger, sweet and starch cravings. Weight loss was an impressive 5% in one study, when this medication was used in combination with another prescription medication, that also lowers blood sugar.
