Metabolic Reset w/ Semaglutide


Semaglutide done the right way!

Our Healthy Lifestyle Plan has been helping our patients lose weight the right way for over 3 years now.  We realize, that in some instances, some patients require a little more of a metabolic reset to kickstart their weight loss journey.

The key work is “kickstart.” The popularity of Semaglutide on the market has made the demand for the drug skyrocket, with many options available without a plan.  We do things a little differently.  We offer semaglutide as a way of helping you achieve your weight loss goals quickly but also safely and more importantly sustainably.

Our goal is to help you achieve your goals the right way that will last a lifetime.

The Plan

  • Initial consultation: You will have a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Praderio to discuss your goals, weight loss history and come up with weight loss plan. This may require lab work which may be vital to understanding your weight loss struggle.
  • Initial Body Analysis: During your first visit we will have you weigh in and body analysis. We will calculate your basal metabolic rate and your daily caloric needs for safe and lifelong weight loss.
  • Recommended Plan: This plan varies from our HLP in that we provide guidance and counseling with regards to what you should and should not be eating.  We firmly believe that the Metabolic Reset Plan is a way for you to lose weight while at the same time teaching you how to live a long and Healthy Lifestyle.
  • Weekly Follow Up: With our Metabolic Reset you will receive a weekly lipotropic/B12 injection, as well as a Semaglutide injection in addition to a weekly weigh in at our office. You will have the opportunity to speak with our nurse about any concerns or struggles you may be facing.
  • Monthly Follow Up: At 4 weeks you will repeat your comprehensive body analysis and with that information determine what adjustments (if any) are required to help you meet your goals.
  • Enhance for Essential Metabolic Support: As with our Healthy Lifestyle Plan we provide you with a 12 week supply of our metabolic support supplement formulated with Purple Green Tea and other ingredients to provide you with the supplements your body needs especialy when trying to lose weight. 

What are Semaglutide injections?

Semaglutide is a small protein (peptide) that activates metabolic pathways in the body to increase blood sugar metabolism and reduce appetite. It has been used to help treat type 2 diabetes under the brand names Ozempic ®, Saxenda® and Wegovy® to name a few.

Semaglutide is know to promote weight loss because the medication helps reduce hunger and promotes fullness by slowing stomach emptying.

Semaglutide is administered once weekly instead of daily, which is one of its advantages. These injections, in conjunction with a healthy diet plan, have shown to be very beneficial for weight loss

How can Semaglutide help me lose weight?

  • Increased Metabolism: Semaglutide promotes fat oxidation which means it appearst ot help your body target the metabolism of stored body fat first.
  • Gluconeogenesis: This is a fancy word for “generate new sugar.” Semaglutide discourages gluconeogenesis which means there is less blood sugar for your bodies insulin to move into the cells.
  • Controlled Hunger: Semaglutide Appears to work on the hypothalamus to increase that full feeling.

What are some possible side effects of Semaglutide?

One of the keys to this plan is our commitment to helping minimize the most common side-effects of Semaglutide which include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting and/or stomach pain.

Our Metabolic Reset differs from other plans in that we take great care in administering the drug responsibly while also providing the support and advice to mitigate any side effects. Dr. Praderio also takes multiple precautionary measures to ensure that Semaglutide is the right fit for you and your weight loss goals.

It’s not just an injection.

Our goal is to help you lose weight and accomplish your goals. NOT to just sell you a medication.  The Metabolic Reset provides you with the tools to start your journey with the aid of a medication NOT to make you live off a medication the rest of your life.  Call us to learn more and to see why the Metabolic Reset plan is right for you.

Our patients who follow the plan have a plan to move forward to keep living a Healthy Lifestyle. Many Metabolic Reset patients even choose to continue with our Healthy Lifestyle Plan.  Click below to learn more about HLP.

Dr. Praderio changed my life!

Rated 5.0 out of 5
March 8, 2020

I have been going to Dr. Praderio since the summer of 2017, when she changed my life for the first time. I was having hormonal issues-night seats, moodiness, hot flashes, etc. She recommended the bio-identical hormone pellets and I have been on the program every 4 months and no longer have the hormone issues I was having.

Then in January 2019, I went to Dr. Praderio about my energy/metabolism level. I noticed I was always hungry and had no energy. I was swimming 4 times a week and following the Adkins diet meal plan lifestyle. I wasn’t able to get that last 20 pounds off. It didn’t matter how much I exercised or ate…I still couldn’t get the weight off. Then Dr. Praderio informed me of her Healthy Lifestyle Plan involving Lipo-B & Vitamin B12 shots. I was ready to start anything to get the weight off and have energy to swim the 4,000 yards I wanted to swim without feeling exhausted before I even got into the pool. I was able to lose the 23 pounds in 4 months following the lifestyle plan-using the my fitness pal application to chart my meals, getting the weekly shots and continue my swimming. I now feel amazing, and according to my husband, look amazing too. I have recommended Dr. Praderio to several of my friends and they are seeing the same results for their hormones and/or weight loss. Even my husband Kevin, felt like his testosterone level wasn’t where it should be so when he found out Dr. Praderio helps men too. He immediately had her start him on the Bio-identical hormone pellets for men. This has changed my husband’s life also. He has more energy and stamina. I would recommend Dr. Praderio and will continue to recommend her to my friends and family.

I had a hysterectomy at the age of 31 and suffered with menopause symptoms for a long time before I met Dr. Praderio. She introduced me to bio-identical hormone pellet therapy and it changed my life. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have found her when I did. She and her staff are amazing.

First Of all, I absolutely love Dr. Carolina Praderio! In 2019 I went in to see her about my problems a with menopause and I started the hormone therapy. Last year, 2020 I mentioned to her that I was having so many problems losing weight. She introduced me to Natalia who has been a constant inspiration for me to learn to eat right and not give up when I did not have a good week. This whole office , from staff to Dr P. are so supportive. I highly recommend visiting this office, I guarantee you will keep going back!

I found that the older I get, the harder it is to lose weight. I happened to come in for my annual appointment and I see all these flyers about Dr Praderio’s weight loss program. It was just what I needed and at the right time. All my life, I’ve battled weight loss and have tried different plans where the next time, that plan didn’t work as easy as the time before. Of course with any diet or weight loss program, you have to work at it and sometimes you need a little help along the way. At 47, I needed that help and Dr Praderio’s program has provided just that by listening to me and my struggles. I’m now eating healthier and I’ve also started running which I’ve never ever done before. The best part is the support and encouragement that you get at your weekly weigh-in. I’ve lost almost 40 lbs and although I’m at a comfortable weight, I’m confident that I can reach my goal of 20 more lbs.

I started that is weight loss journey last year, and since then I have learned many helpful tips Dr. Praderio. I told myself that I had to lose at least 20 pounds before I turn 30, and here I am still trying to accomplish my goal. When I first stepped on the scale, I was in shock. I knew that I had to do something about it, and especially because I had the support of Dr. Praderio, the staff, and patients who started with me. I started out on a 1,200 calorie a day and thought to myself this is going to be hard, but I knew that I had to try. With the help of the app helping me count my calories, it became easier for me to choose what to eat. Then I realized that it was not all about eating salads, there was much more of a variety. With the help of skinnytaste.com, I found so many healthy recipes that were within my calorie range. I bought a food scale from H-E-B, and began weighing my food. Each Friday as many of you know, I would step on the scale and was very excited when I would lose at least a pound. We would all motivate each other not to give up. At that time was not taking the Phentermine, was still able to lose inches which helped boost my confidence. Now, I take the Enhance supplement that really did help curve my appetite. I leave it right next to my coffee pot in the morning to I remember to take it before I start my day. I have lost a total of 16 lbs. and I am still able to maintain my weigh in a healthy range. I am happy with what I have lost, and feel confident that I will reach my goal.
