How does the F.I.T. program work?
The F.I.T. program at Beleza Surgery utilizes a proven three-drug formula to help patients achieve their weight loss goals. The centerpiece of this program is an FDA-approved GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) agonist taken once a week.
This medication works by mimicking the action of the natural GLP-1 hormones produced by the intestine that help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce appetite. GLP-1 agonists bind to the same receptors in the brain as our natural hormones.
These medications send signals to the brain to indicate you're full faster than you normally would be, allowing you to eat less. They also slow stomach emptying, making food stay in the stomach longer. This helps you feel fuller longer and reduces hunger cravings overall. As a result, you can find yourself eating less of your meals and snacking less often.
GLP-1 agonists also stimulate the production of insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar, and reduce the production of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels.
The other two drugs are a lipotropic agent that helps naturally boost energy and burn fat and a drug that helps the body produce more growth hormone to boost energy, break down fat, help build lean muscle, and improve heart function.
How do these drugs work together for optimal, nonsurgical weight loss?
Lipotropic drugs increase the body's capacity to burn fat and increase energy levels by enhancing liver function.
Growth hormone is essential for cell renewal, tissue repair, and regulating the metabolism. It is normally produced by the pituitary gland, but our levels naturally decline with age. This can contribute to weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and decreased energy.
When used in combination with a GLP-1 agonist, lipotropic agents can boost the body's ability to burn fat, improve liver function to metabolize fat more efficiently and lead to greater weight loss and improved energy levels. Adding growth hormone to the mix helps boost your metabolism, promotes the breakdown of body fat, and helps the body build lean muscle mass.
How much weight can I lose with the F.I.T. program?
A recent study showed that this particular combination of weight loss medications leads to an average weight loss of 14.9% — that's 30 pounds for a 200-pound person. And some patients lose even more weight.
Patients are not required to alter their eating habits or exercise routines as part of the therapy, but doing so can improve and speed up weight loss.
It will be up to you whether you want to keep taking the medication after you lose weight. However, it's important to note that some people regain weight after stopping treatment.
