Fat Loss for the Summer (2021)

Jun 4, 2021

Fat Loss for the Summer (2021)

Summer 2021 is just around the corner, and it's looking a lot brighter than last summer!

This year, we're venturing out and making up for experiences we may have missed out on during quarantine. There's no better time to dedicate yourself to health and fitness goals, and to work toward looking and feeling your absolute best.

Defy Medical has everything you need to support your body goals for Summer 2021.

Weight Management Prescriptions

Weight management adheres to a multi-faceted lifestyle model that’s comprised of several interrelated decisions and activities such as: eating healthy foods; understanding portion sizes, creating a holistic exercise regimen that works with your schedule, incorporates your interests, is dynamic enough to prevent burnout, and sets reasonable goals.

Defy Medical also offers access the wealth of safe, clinically proven, prescription weight management medications that are currently available (as appropriate for the patient).


This medication works by suppressing the appetite to stimulate lipolysis (fat loss). It can be prescribed short-term as a support supplement to a fat loss plan that includes regular exercise and a low-calorie diet. See Phentermine in the patient portal.

Lipo Burn SR NEW

This medication works by suppressing appetite while boosting metabolism. It contains caffeine which has been shown to act as a calorie burner. This medication is designed to be prescribed on a short-term basis and combined with exercise and a low-calorie diet.
There are three versions of this medication available. Speak with your provider or Patient Services to discuss which one is right for you: Lipo Burn 1Lipo Burn 2Lipo Burn 3

Please be advised that you will need to speak to your provider or Patient Services to see if you are currently eligible to be put on a prescription weight management protocol or if an interim consult with your provider is needed.

Non-Prescription Weight Management Supplements

Lipo-C Injections

This injection includes Methionine, Inositol, Choline, L-Carnitine and B-Complex, which work together to help reduce overall body fat while preserving lean muscle. Order Lipo-C from Defy Medical’s online store for self-administration, or come into the Defy Tampa clinic to have your injection administered by our staff.

B12 Injections

This vitamin injectable can support metabolic function and give you an energy boost, which can motivate you to follow through on your fitness goals. Visit our Defy Tampa clinic to receive B12 injections, or order the injectable nutrient through our online store for self-administration.

Fat Loss Kit

Defy Medical's Fat Loss Kit is a combination of LIPO-C and Vitamin B12 injections. This combination can help boost energy levels, improve your mood, and increase fat loss while keeping lean muscle intact. Available in the Defy Tampa clinic or through our online store for self-administration.

LipoSculpt Cream

Aminophylline, LipoSculpt's active ingredient, inhibits the breakdown of cAMP in fat cells leading to decrease in waist and thigh circumference. The cream's formulation base, Glycyrrhetinic Acid (GA), is the active ingredient in licorice root, thought to block an enzyme resulting in the reduction of availability of cortisol in fat cells, thus leading to weight loss. Available in the Defy Tampa clinic or through our online store for self-administration. 

Other Weight Management Therapies

Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormones are key to maintaining a healthy weight. When you have a hormone deficiency, the resulting imbalance can cause fat gain and make weight more difficult to lose. Bringing your hormones up to optimal levels can help facilitate fat loss and increase muscle mass, which can improve overall body composition.

If you're not currently an HRT patient, talk with a Patient Advocate today to learn more about how HRT can help you. If you're already an HRT patient, talk with your provider about how you can focus on shedding excess fat and building new muscle.

Fat Loss and Hypothyroidism

Underactive thyroid often leads to weight gain, specifically fat gain. Defy Medical’s weight management options can help combat the effects of fat gain within hypothyroid patients – and within anyone looking to boost fat loss.

If you’re experiencing symptoms like foggy-headedness, fatigue, and slow metabolism you may want to add thyroid tests to your regimen. Contact us learn more about the Complete Thyroid Blood Panel and the treatment options available to patients with an underactive thyroid.
