Our Program

THE THINSULIN® PROGRAM

Weight loss requires more than just appetite suppressants, shakes, pre-packaged meals and exercise. It requires a true understanding of the psychological and behavioral aspects of the human psyche to change eating habits. At Lorphen Medical, we use the Thinsulin Program to help you lose weight and stay thin. There are three pillars to the Thinsulin® Program.

  •  First, the focus is on insulin, not calories. You will learn how to lower your insulin level to burn fat.
  • Second, Thinsulin® changes your thinking about food by using cognitive behavioral therapy to break bad habits and change your eating habits.
  • Third, Thinsulin® helps you keep the weight you’ve lost and overcome the dreaded weight-loss plateau. 

In your weight loss journey, you will go through the Active Phase to help you lose weight and Passive Phase to help you maintain your weight and overcome the weight-loss plateau. You may expect to lose between 3-5 pounds in the first week, about 5% of initial weight monthly, and up to 20% of your initial weight at the end of the Active Phase* (4 months).

You will inevitably hit the weight-loss plateau. The Thinsulin® Program helps you overcome the dreaded plateau by teaching you how to adopt a new way of thinking about food and developing the skills to keep the excess weight off for good in the Passive Phase.

It’s simple and easy to follow. You’ll develop new tools in your toolbox to lose weight today- and keep it off tomorrow! No matter what diet plans you have tried in the past, we believe we can help you today. 

 

WEIGHT-LOSS MEDICATIONS

Depending on your medical history and eating patterns, you may be prescribed phentermine to suppress your appetite. We also offer recently FDA approved medications for weight loss, including BELVIQ® , Contrave, and Qsymia.

BELVIQ®  is thought to work by targeting a hunger receptor in the brain to help you feel full sooner. It has been clinically proven and tested in trials involving nearly 8,000 people. For more information, visit www.belviq.com.

Contrave contains 2 well-known, previously approved medications, naltrexone and bupropion. Non-clinical studies suggest these medications work together in 2 ares of the brain. Contrave is approved by the FDA for weight loss along with diet and exercise. For more information, visit www.contrave.com.

Qsymia contains a combination of phentermine and topiramate in a once-daily pill to help you eat less by reducing your appetite and help you feel more satisfied with what you’ve eaten. For more information, visit www.qsymia.com.

Phentermine is approved by the FDA for the management of obesity in 1959. It is thought to work by suppressing appetite.

These prescription medications are approved for weight loss in conjunction with diet, exercise and behavioral modification. That’s why Lorphen Medical with its revolutionary Thinsulin Program can help you achieve your weight loss goal.
