Q:

If i have a record of controlled hypertension will I still qualify for the appetite suppresants? I don't want to pay for the program only to come in for my consultation and find out I "don't qualify".... Thanks.

Sue  asked on  Apr 23, 2012

A:

Sue, if your blood pressure is controlled then it usually does not stop you from qualifying for an appetitie suppressant BUT...as stated in many questions and answers below, qualifying for an appetite suppressant has many aspects. Current meds, medical history, family history, weight, BMI etc. Unfortunately you won't know if you qualify until you are seen and the practitioner reviews all that information. What I want to reiterate is that the appetite suppressant is only a tool it is not the program. If you follow the prescribed diet plan given to you then losing weight should not be an issue. I lost 40 lbs on the program and I never qualified for the appetite suppressant - I had no issues and have kept the weight off for years. Hope this helps - Nurse Sherri

Q:

What is the specific prescription appetite suppressant used. I don't want to buy a "pig in a poke" so to speak. Is it Phentermine and if not, what is it?

Pat C.  asked on  Apr 21, 2012

A:

Pat, first of all I just want to clarify that not every person qualifies for the appetite suppressant. We are regulated by the medical board and the DEA. If you do qualify for an appetite suppressant Phentermine is one that we use. Using an appetite suppressant is only a tool it is not the program. Please see Christen's question and answer below. Thank you - Nurse Sherri

Q:

I'm 5'5'' and weigh 140. My usual weight is 125, but I've gained 15 pounds over the past year. I know I'm not overweight, but I'm not happy with my size. Would I still be someone who would benefit from the program? Also, what does the initial exam include? Do the doctors or nurses look at what kinds of foods are best for you to eat, such as more proteins or more fats? I'm trying to look at your website and match up what the Groupon deal is with one of the programs, but I can't figure it out. Could you provide me with some more details about what we will be receiving from the medical staff?

Megan  asked on  Apr 20, 2012

A:

Megan, everyone can benefit from the program whether you have 15 pounds to lose or over 200 pounds to lose. The initial exam includes a complete medical history, eating style, mood, exercise questionnaire and head to toe assessment. Our monthly fees are not based on what "program" you chose - the programs Jumpstart and New Beginings are programs you get to choose to do. Jumpstart is using mostly Monarch foods (which is an additional cost) but the quickest way to lose the weight. With that being said our goal is to eventually teach people how to use their own grocery store foods you just choose when that is. We have patient guides and meal/menu guides for patients depending on where they are at in their program. Hope this helps - thank you for your question - Nurse Sherri

Q:

I weigh 165 and want to lose 30 ponds. I am 5' 6'', Will I qualify for the appetite suppressants? I don't see the point in signing up if I am not going to do the diet in full.

Christen B.  asked on  Apr 20, 2012

A:

Christen, unfortunately it does not work this way. We won't know if you qualify until you actually meet with one of the practitioners. Qualifying for the appetite suppressant is not just based on BMI but also medical history, family history and current medications. Again, the appetite suppressants are a tool they are not what the program is all about. There is no magic pill, sorry to say but I lost 40 lbs on the program and have been able to keep it off without qualifying for the appetite suppressants. Thank you - Nurse Sherri

Q:

Are the "FDA approved appetite suppresants" HCG?

Michelle J.  asked on  Apr 20, 2012

A:

Michelle, no they are not. FDA has not approved HCG. FDA actually claims that HCG is a gimic. The appetite suppressants that Monarch prescribes are in pill form and are a FDA prescription only medication. Not all patients qualify to use them and frankly they are only a tool. Following your prescribed diet plan is the bulk of the program. Thank you for your question - Nurse Sherri
