FAQs

Q?

Is medication always used? Which medications do you use?

A.

Many of our Vivaliti plans include the use of appetite suppressants. However, we do have plans that do not utilize medications, such as for those patients that are nursing, or have other health history that would counter-indicate their use. We only use FDA approved appetite suppressants because of their long-term safety and efficacy, our appetite suppressants are recommended by the National Institute for Health. The combination of phen/fen is not used and has been taken off the market.

Q?

What is the average weight loss of a patient?

A.

While individual results vary, and cannot be guaranteed, the typical patient that follows our program will lose 5 to 10 lbs their first week on the program and lose 15 lbs their first month.

Q?

What kind of foods are in your nutritional plan?

A.

Our nutritional plans utilize low-glycemic foods that can be found in any mainstream grocery store. We educate you about these foods and proper portion sizes, so you can eat real food in real life settings.

Q?

Do I have to come into the office weekly?

A.

Weekly visits are important for a number of reasons. Accountability improves your chances for success, and your weekly visit gives you a chance to get support, discuss your progress, and if indicated, get your weekly medication.

Q?

Do I need to exercise?

A.

As part of your program customization, we will make recommendations for your activity level. This doesn’t necessarily mean “gym” time, but as you experience success with Vivaliti, it is natural to become more active in ways that suit you.
