Vitamins and minerals in tablet form safely bolster energy levels without the "crash" associated with caffeinated energy drinks and the dental hazards of munching on iron ore. Keep your teeth in working order with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a weight-loss program at Greater Orlando Medical Weight Loss, valid at the Maitland, Orlando, and Lake Mary locations (a $335 total value). Weight-loss programs include the following:
- Initial consultation with health exam and B12 injection (a $245 value)
- A second visit with B12 injection and phentermine if prescribed (a $75 value)
- 30 days' worth of multivitamins (a $15 value)
Overseen by a board-certified internal-medicine physician, Greater Orlando Medical Weight Loss's staff helps clients to trim away unwanted inches with a comprehensive weight-loss program packed with supplements and lifestyle-changing advice. Staffers kick off the wellness journey by taking patients' weight and body-fat calculations, followed by checking their blood pressure and heart to assess their overall physical condition and determine whether they are actually human. Next, a B12 and amino-acid injection jump-starts weight loss with a metabolism-jolting array of nutrients, and specialists sit down with patients to discern their eating habits and discuss the nuances of their personal physiology.
The second visit includes an additional B12 blast, along with another waistline measurement to monitor inch-shedding progress and a 30-day supply of vitamins, complete with instructions on carving them into cartoon characters. Past participants in the program have reported a 5- to 10-pound reduction in the first week in combination with a healthful diet and exercise and up to 20 pounds lost in the course of a month.

Throughout the course of his 15-year practice, Dr. Rene Cruz, board-certified internal-medicine physician, has noticed a direct relationship between his patients' overall health and their weight. He and his staff of medical assistants create individualized weight-loss programs to relieve patients of excess weight and corresponding health issues, along with the help of a new collaboration with chef George Stella. These programs blend basic exercise regimens, food journals, and nutritional and medical counseling, with the added punch of FDA-approved appetite suppressants, multivitamins, and B12 injections. Dr. Cruz and his staff teach patients how important controlling environmental influences and understanding human physiology is to maintaining long-term weight loss, something England achieved by spending millions of pounds of sterling silver during the Hundred Years War.
