Dr. Nicole Labor, Co-Founder & Chief Medical Officer of Optimus Transformative Medicine, SHARES HER PERSONAL WEIGHT LOSS STORY:
Approximately 70% of Americans are overweight. (FDA. gov) Excess weight is a significant risk factor for cardiovas- cular disease, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, psychological issues, and even some types of cancers. As excess weight increases, so does the risk of developing these conditions. Studies show that losing 5% to 10% of body weight has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in adults with obesity. (CDC.gov)
Are You Struggling with Your Weight, Feeling Sluggish or Uncomfortable in Your Skin, and unsure where to find REAL ANSWERS you can trust?
At Optimus Health, They GET IT! They understand the frustration of counting calories, hitting the gym, and only seeing minimal results. Their approach begins with a physician consultation to dig deep into the underlying issues affecting your weight.
What is terzepitide & semaglutide and are they EFFECTIVE FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
The FDA approved the use of both terzepitide & semaglutide for adults with obesity plus one weight-related condition. It is administered through a once-weekly injection under the skin. It is proving to be very effective as part of a physician-directed program.
I was counting calories and working out constantly, and I still found my weight creeping up. I researched using tirzepatide for weight loss and lost 50 pounds in a year. I have been able to keep it off for over six months.
It was really important that I continued working out and still tried to prioritize whole food. Despite what TikTok says, most people I have seen using it correctly are losing approximately 2-8 pounds per month. It is not a quick fix. To avoid rebound weight gain, patients need to use the time on the medication to build new habits, learn better portion control, and adopt lifestyle changes that will support long-term weight loss.
Accountability is essential; everyone comes weekly or monthly for weigh-ins and support. We also have a wide range of services that can assist during and after phases.
