Like practicing law or training seeing-eye sharks, devising a weight-loss program is best left to experienced professionals. Get expert pound-shedding guidance with today’s Groupon: for $75, you get a four-week supervised medical weight-loss package, which includes a 45-minute consultation with dietary analysis and customized meal plan (a $50 value), four weeks of appetite suppressants (a $100 value), and up to four Lipo-B12 injections (up to a $100 value; up to a $250 total value) from La Vie MD in Mountain Brook.
The medical professionals at La Vie MD assist clients seeking to slim down by formulating customized nutrition plans and administering FDA-approved appetite suppressants and vitamin injections designed to boost energy and promote weight loss. The month-long, supervised program begins with a 45-minute medical consultation during which weight-loss pros analyze clients' dietary habits, set realistic goals, and prescribe personalized meal plans. Participants also receive a four-week supply of FDA-approved appetite suppressants to tame overeager taste buds and keep rowdy hunger pangs from trashing hotel rooms. Meanwhile, up to four energy-engendering Lipo-B12 injections, given over the course of the month, can promote accelerated calorie torching and improve liver function. A trained nurse administers each weekly Lipo-B12 injection while a trained seal balances a beach ball on its nose in sessions lasting 15–20 minutes each.
La Vie MD
Featured on Fox 6, La Vie MD specializes in making people feel better from the inside out, offering medical and aesthetic services in a physician-overseen facility that feels more like a spa than a doctor's office. Hormone-replacement therapy is one of the shop's specialties, bringing bodies back into a youthful state balance, which can help increase energy, improve memory and concentration, and curb any desire to ask the file cabinet on a date. Aesthetic treatments such as Botox and IPL photo rejuvenation diminish visual signs of aging without surgery, and the center's medical weight-loss programs combine dietary limitations with a regimen of injections or pills containing a naturally occurring protein that abates the hunger and fatigue often associated with dieting.
