Supplements and Recommendations for Weight Management

Diet: Weight Loss

Getting Weight Off and Keeping It Off

“Why can’t I lose weight?” is a question that many of us have asked ourselves. However, effective weight loss means dealing with several variables.

  • Poor diet: Most of us eat ethnically or habitually, or follow the recommendations of the processed food and fast food industry who encourage us to eat much more than we need to and more poorly than we should. This also extends to the oversized food portions being served in the more popular restaurants.

  • Lack of accountability: Successful weight loss is best accomplished by being accountable to someone.

  • Lack of exercise: The purpose of food is to provide us with the energy that we require for activity. If we consume more calories per day than what we expend in activity, we store the excess calories as fat. As we increase exercise, we decrease fat.
  • Failure to commit: Successful, healthy weight loss can require a commitment of six months to two years, with a LIFETIME commitment to a new healthy lifestyle to keep it off.
  • Psychological make-up: Food as a reward mechanism is common in American culture.

  • Genetic make-up: Research has found that some individuals possess a genetic profile which makes it difficult for them to lose weight. However, genes only indicate predisposition; they do not mandate outcome.

  • Hormones: There are a number of hormones that can come into play in weight loss, including thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones and dopamine. Hormones can impact metabolic rate,weight gain and food craving.

Naltrexone for Weight Loss

A commercially available Weight Loss Product, Contrave, that consists of Naltrexone & Bupropion, has been used by many to lose weight.  In a study, patients experienced clinically significant weight loss when combined with a diet and exercise program and also decreased body weight in patients with diabetes. People are hesitant of the weight loss solution because Bupropion is an antidepressant. Those people can contact T&C Compounding to get Naltrexone for weight loss without the antidepressant Bupropion. Read: Naltrexone/Bupropion (Contrave) for Weight Loss

We spent a lot of time talking about Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Town & Country Compounding, being the global experts in Naltrexone, has had many prescribers requesting LDN. In fact, Town & Country Compounding has a protocol that they use. You can contact the pharmacy or have the doctor contact us. This is often used when patients do not want to use the antidepressant drug combination bup-ntx that is commercially available.
