Congratulations! There is absolutely no better feeling in the world than putting YOU on the top of your list and unlocking your optimal health!

Obesity is a costly condition that can reduce quality of life and increases the risk for many serious chronic diseases and premature death. The U.S. Surgeon General issued the call to action to prevent and decrease Overweight and Obesity in 2001, and has challenged each state to reduce obesity prevalence among adults to 15%. Florida Department of health Office of Statistics & Assessment reported, as of 2007, that the percentage of Adults that are Obese or Overweight in Pinellas County is roughly 63.2% of the county population.

Taking the first step is the hardest. Be prepared! Fresh Vitality's Weight Loss Program is unlike any other program that you may have tried. Your excess weight (and how it got there) is yours and yours alone. The job of losing that weight is also yours, but at Fresh Vitality you are not alone.

  • Vital Signs
  • Body Composition Analysis
  • Medication Refill - Appetite Suppressants for one week (as medically appropriate)
  • B12/MIC Injection (Amino Acid, Vitamin & Mineral Supplements)
  • Consultation: Review Progress and Discuss Goals

Three Phases to Weight Management

Phase 1 is designed to reach and maintain a higher level of ketosis. This phase can last anywhere from 1-4 weeks depending on your comfort level. Dr. Ariss will provide direction on how this can be safely achieved. Appetite suppressants are prescribed for those patients that qualify and are in need of appetite control. During this phase, rapid weight loss is typically achieved.

Additionally, we provide counseling on medications and supplements that can aid in carbohydrate cravings which some of us develop, especially at night. Dr. Ariss will discuss with you which medications or supplements you can take to help control these cravings. During Phase 1, you will not be expected to exercise since your calorie and carbohydrate intakes are minimized.

Phase 2 is designed to maintain a moderate level of ketosis. The weight loss during Phase 2 is not as drastic as Phase 1. You do increase the amount of calorie and carbohydrate intake during this phase.

This phase continues until you reach your goal weight. During Phase 2 and Phase 3, we recommend that you incorporate exercise into your daily routine. You can intermittently go back to Phase 1 for those who want to accelerate the degree of weight loss.

Phase 3 is known as the Maintenance phase. This phase begins the moment you reach your goal weight. We all know how difficult it can be to maintain our goal weight. We will give you the tools to successfully maintain this goal weight.

We have a large selection of nutritional supplements and dietary aids which can help you control your calorie and carbohydrate intake.

As an added benefit, Dr. Ariss is specially trained in Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy and can optimize hormone imbalances or deficiencies, which may play a role in the inability for a patient to manage or control their weight effectively.
