How to lose weight in South Florida

March 3, 2019


With all the different weight loss programs, we know it’s hard to decipher between what is legitimate and what’s utter non-sense. There are diet plans and diet pills designed to help you burn fat and reduce calories. Apple cider vinegar is a new rage, which seems to be replacing the other big fad which was coconut water for weight loss. The Keto diet is in while the South beach diet is out. If you’re looking to slim down, what are the best options for you? At NovaGenix, at 609 N. Hepburn Ave. Jupiter, FL 33458, we have many options that takes into consideration your unique medical history and individual body type and needs. Not all programs are a one size fits all.

Nobody has the arsenal of fitness experts that we do.

Weight loss medication may be prescribed as well and has benefits for many reasons. As we get older, our bodies slow down and that’s including the metabolism which makes it harder to achieve the same results you used to see in the gym when you were in your 20’s. Thyroid conditions may make it harder to get the energy and motivation to start a work out routine. Some people may have chronic medical conditions that make exercising impossible or extremely difficult and painful. Prescription weight loss medication like HcG, when used correctly can help the body target abnormal fat, especially abdominal fats, and still keep muscle mass. Phentermine can also help reduce appetite and increase the metabolic rate. Both medications are prescription only and a thorough review of current and past medical history can determine if these are good options.

Hormone therapy can help other patients, as low or fluctuating testosterone, estrogen and progesterone may make it hard to exercise and cause the body to gain weight unexpectedly and for no apparent reason. We can help diagnose and treat men or women with Low Testosterone (andropause) or women gaining weight from menopause. Other fat burning vitamins and peptides may be an option that our patients chose as well. Our doctor has years of experience in HRT (Hormone replacement therapy) and understands the delicate balance within us. Call 561-277-8260 today to learn more and visit us at
