What is the Priority Weight Program?

Most people’s weight remains stable over time because they have reached "energy homeostasis." This is just a fancy way of saying the calories that the calories eaten equal the calories expended with daily activity. This equilibrium is determined by a complex interplay of brain chemistry, learned behaviors and environmental factors. Unfortunately, there are no magic weight loss bullets now or anticipated in the near future that will counteract these influences.

The good news is that any of these factors can be overcome by mental and physical effort. If your personal energy balance causes you to fall into the overweight category, then you will have to consciously increase your physical activity and vigilance about your eating habits. This concept is easily understood but putting it into practice is difficult. Therefore, we are here to help you put new healthy habits into practice.

In addition to lifestyle and dietary review and advice, we use phentermine as an aid to help you reach your goal.

Phentermine suppresses your appetite and increases your energy level so that you become more active. At each visit we will review your progress and reinforce your success as well as attempt to identify those aspects of your life which prevent you from achieving your goals.

Over time we hope your reliance upon phentermine will decrease and your new healthy lifestyle will become more routine and natural.
