The Program

Medicines: Weight-Loss Pills

There are hundreds of weight-loss pills out there. Some medications may double or triple the weight-loss you get from diet and exercise, according to well-conducted medical studies. Dr. Marlowe investigates each major weight-loss pill and appetite suppressant for safety and effectiveness, including alternative medicines and herbal appetite suppressants. Most other medical weight-loss programs give you only one option for a weight-loss medicine. If you are not a candidate to receive that weight-loss medicine, or if it stops working, you are out of luck.

However, our clinicians consider multiple options when helping you choose the best weight-loss medication for you. If one medication is not an option, you will be presented other possible weight loss medications, each of which works in a completely different way. When you see Dr. Marlowe or Natasha, a weight-loss medication will be recommended which works well for you, and it will be changed if necessary.  We currently prescribe more than 30 different medications for weight loss, which provides the most of any medical weight loss center in the United States.

Obstacles to Weight Loss

Simple Exercises

If you want lifelong weight-loss success, you need an exercise plan that is simple and fun — something you enjoy. Any weight-loss program which demands you use complicated exercise regimens or routines that are no fun … is doomed for failure, because you’ll quit in a few months. We will help you choose simple exercises which you truly enjoy, so you can do them for a lifetime!

Sometimes, there are physical obstacles to exercise: a strained back, painful knees, foot pain, or weak ankles. Dr. Marlowe is proud to have sought additional training in Sports Medicine at the National Institute of Fitness and Sport in Indianapolis. He will apply the same techniques for you which he learned while providing medical care for world-class athletes.

Tailored Nutrition

Everyone agrees: “a pill which is good for one person might be bad for another person.” No one thinks there is a pill which is perfect for everyone. Yet some people still cling to the outdated belief that there is one diet plan which is perfect for everyone. Scientifically minded physicians and other weight loss experts have recommended individualized diet plans for years. Don’t go to a medical weight loss center where everyone is given the exact same pill + diet + shots.

We’re proud to announce that one of the tailored diets which we have recommended to our patients with diabetes has received write-up in an issue of Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), which is one of the journals most respected by physicians worldwide.

The diet alone significantly improved the good cholesterol and the HgbA1c (diabetes number) far better than the outdated American Diabetes Association diet! Our patients have seen these results for years. And, of course, our patients have done even better than the patients in the study, because our patients get all four components of weight loss (not just diet alone).

We continue to provide cutting-edge medical nutritional care and weight loss methods. Don’t be caught following outdated medical advice or nutritional recommendations for weight loss. Now it’s old news that the BEST diet for you is as simple as a single blood draw. But some patients and some physicians still don’t know it.

Patients say…

It has influenced my whole family. I am the only one who is a patient at Dr. Marlowe’s office, but with me changing my eating habits, my whole family has lost 110 lbs.

I lost 70 lbs and got a new job. I no longer have to travel and I make twice as much money. I was always overlooked for promotions at my old job because of my weight.

I can’t make that chili fast enough. My husband keeps eating it. Everything on your list … we love it

Oh my goodness that medication is powerful! I don’t think about food all the time like I used to.

“I’ve tried so many other diets and none of them worked for me. This is the first that really worked.”

Now that I’ve lost some weight my wife can’t keep her hands off of me … and that’s a good thing. I don’t know what to tell you, doc.

Cost? My life insurance premium – they lowered it from $139 a month to $79 a month after 3 months of seeing Dr. Marlowe. And after coming off diabetes medicines, I’m actually saving money each month seeing Dr. Marlowe.

It’s been almost effortless losing 80 lbs. It changes your outlook on things.

I can’t make that chili fast enough. My husband keeps eating it. Everything on your list … we love it

I am happier. I am a different person all around. My friends are like “You are glowing”.

The most unexpected thing about this weight loss is that my feet are not as fat. Now my shoes are too big. I told my boyfriend, it’s time to buy new shoes.

I’m not inconvenienced in my lifestyle at all. None of these foods are a hardship for me.

I never thought I would lose more than 100 lbs in less than six months. I still can’t believe it.

I believe in you. I’ve lost the weight and kept it off more than 2 years. With the other weight loss doctor, I always regained it.

Knock on wood, but at this point it’s been easy. And nothing has been easy since I was 12. It’s not some crazy system where you have to race to the finish. It’s something I feel I can continue moving forward and long-term.

I went shopping and I went to the size 14’s, and they were too large, so I went to the 12’s and they wouldn’t fit either. I can’t tell you how I felt when I tried on a size 10 and it was me. Thank you. I haven’t been a size 10 since 1984. And […]

I’m the #1 most successful loser in the whole history of the Curves I go to. The owner asked me to write my story so he could put the story and a picture of me on the wall at the gym.

I don’t remember what you said first visit because I was so emotional, I never thought I would lose the weight. Now, I’ve lost it all, in only 4 months.

I love coming here. The way I’m eating, I’m comfortable with it. I don’t feel deprived. I feel wonderful. I feel more athletic. My backbone feels better … no pain.
