Our Program

Because our Weight Loss program was designed by a physician, it is a comprehensive plan that includes both nutrition guidance to help you learn to make healthy lifestyle choices and prescription medications to help control your cravings, give you added energy and boost your metabolism. This combination of patient education and the use of proven medical tools is what makes our program unique, safe and effective.

Dr. Marc Scheiner is an experienced Delaware weight loss doctor who treats individuals seeking physician supervised weight loss in Wilmington and Newark, as well as in surrounding areas such as Northeastern Maryland and Southeastern Pennsylvania. He offers a comprehensive medical weight loss program for overweight individuals, which includes exercise and nutritional guidance, vitamin supplements and the temporary use of phentermine, an appetite suppressant, among several other integral components.

A medical weight loss program can be a valuable tool if you: have struggled to lose excess weight; are frustrated with the never-ending cycle of weight loss and regain; or cannot lose the excess weight after pregnancy.

Individual weight loss results from a physician supervised weight loss plan ultimately depend on how closely you follow your weight loss doctor’s instructions, including how faithfully you restrict calories, eat nutritious meals and adhere to the recommended exercise routine.

WHAT PHENTERMINE IS

Phentermine is the generic name for an appetite suppressant that has been approved for short-term use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The drug is also marketed under several other brand names, including Adipex, Phentride, Pro-Fast and Supramine, among many others. When taken as directed by a qualified doctor, phentermine can be an effective component of a physician supervised weight loss program, which also includes a low-calorie diet and regular exercise.

WHY PHENTERMINE IS PRESCRIBED FOR WEIGHT LOSS

If you are overweight, the temporary, short-term use of phentermine (for a period of up to 12 weeks) can help jumpstart your physician supervised weight loss treatment plan. Phentermine curbs your appetite, making it easier to establish healthy nutrition, eating and lifestyle habits you can maintain over time. As it becomes easier for you to make consistent healthy lifestyle choices and you start losing weight, you can stop taking phentermine. If you continue on a path of healthy living, you will achieve, and eventually maintain, your desired body weight.

HOW IT WORKS

Phentermine is classified as an anorectic drug, which decreases your appetite, so you consume less food (i.e., calories) and lose weight as a result. It works by causing the hypothalamus region of the brain to stimulate the adrenal glands so they release a chemical called norepinephrine into the circulation system. In turn, the norepinephrine triggers the body’s fight-or-flight response, minimizing any hunger sensation. In addition, phentermine encourages the body to break down stored fat cells.

CANDIDACY

If you are significantly overweight and have an increased risk of certain health problems related to excess weight or obesity, you may be a suitable candidate for a physician supervised weight loss program involving the temporary use of phentermine.

However, you should not take phentermine if you:

  • Are allergic to any of the ingredients in the drug
  • Take amphetamines of any type (They have a chemical structure that is similar to that of phentermine.)
  • Have been diagnosed with heart disease or an irregular heartbeat
  • Have been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid
  • Have a history of substance abuse (Phentermine can be habit forming.)
  • Are pregnant or nursing
Dr. Marc Scheiner is a leading weight loss doctor in Delaware who treats individuals seeking physician supervised weight loss in Newark and Wilmington, and in surrounding regions such as Southeastern Pennsylvania and Northeastern Maryland. At Medical Weight Loss Group, Dr. Scheiner provides an exhaustive medical weight loss plan for individuals who want to lose excess weight. The comprehensive program is comprised of: nutrition and fitness counseling; the temporary use of phentermine, an FDA-approved prescription appetite suppressant; vitamin supplements; and several other critical components.

You might benefit from participating in a physician supervised weight loss plan if you: have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight in the past; are discouraged by the perpetual cycle of losing weight only to regain it; or have not had any luck losing the extra weight following pregnancy.

How much weight you ultimately lose depends on how strictly you adhere to the weight loss program, including how conscientiously you reduce your daily caloric consumption, eat healthy meals and follow the recommended fitness plan.

Although you must be dedicated to following the physician supervised weight loss plan closely, Dr. Scheiner will assist you on your journey by providing you with the tools needed to achieve your weight loss goals. For instance, as part of the Medical Weight Loss Group program, you will receive vitamin B12 shots periodically.

HOW B12 SHOTS COMPLEMENT THE PHYSICIAN SUPERVISED WEIGHT LOSS PLAN

Many weight loss patients report that receiving regular vitamin B12 shots has increased their metabolic rate, helping them burn calories faster and feel more energized throughout the day. Countless patients also report sleeping better since they started receiving vitamin B12 shots on a regular basis.

MORE ABOUT VITAMIN B12 SHOTS

Cobalamin, or vitamin B12/MIC, is a naturally occurring nutrient found in a number of animal products. Natural sources of vitamin B12 include certain shellfish (e.g., clams), crustaceans (e.g., crab), fish (e.g., salmon, sea bass), lean red meats (e.g., beef, lamb), eggs and dairy products, among other sources. Even though you can find vitamin B12/MIC in certain foods, the most efficient way to introduce vitamin B12 into the blood stream is via a vitamin B12 shot.

Dr. Scheiner and many of his patients have achieved their weight loss goals with the help of the Medical Weight Loss Group program including regular vitamin B12 shots. Now, it is time for you to discover how a physician supervised weight loss program with vitamin B12 injections can help you succeed in losing unwanted weight.

Delaware weight loss doctor Marc Scheiner, MD, wants you to know that a crucial part of losing weight — and keeping it off over time — is to eat healthy, nutritious foods. This does not mean following all the fad diet plans that come along. Nor does it mean depriving yourself of needed calories and nutrients. It simply means eating the right portions of the right foods.

The proper portion size differs for every person, depending on unique factors such as a person’s height, his activity level, and how many calories he requires per day to sustain or increase his current level of physical activity.

The right foods are those that are not processed. They are low in sugar and saturated fat content. They are sources of lean protein. The right foods also include whole grains, and a variety of fruits and vegetables in every color of the rainbow.

HOW DOCTOR SCHEINER TAILORS DIET PLANS TO MEET PATIENTS’ NEEDS

Dr. Scheiner can review your medical history as well as your nutrition and fitness profile to help you determine how many calories you should consume each day and what portion sizes you should use when planning meals to fit your caloric needs. He will also show you how to measure out the proper portion size.

In addition to portion size, you will also learn what proportions of each food group you should eat each day. For instance, the United States government recommends that each person eat the following food groups in the following proportions every day: two to three servings of dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese; two to three servings of meat, poultry, fish, dry beans, eggs or nuts; three to five servings of vegetables; two to four servings of fruits; and six to 11 servings of whole grains.

Also, there are health benefits associated with consuming a sparing amount of unsaturated fat and mono-saturated fat daily. Good sources of these types of fats are salmon, avocado and certain nuts such as walnuts.

We will encourage you to visit with a registered dietitian to educate you about the various food groups and their nutritional value. The dietitian will explain to you how many calories you should consume each day, and what percentage of your total caloric intake should be dedicated to each food group.

At the end of the day, healthy diet plans simply involve healthy eating. With this philosophy in mind, Dr. Scheiner incorporates nutritional guidance into his physician supervised weight loss program, so you can eat healthfully without feeling like you are on a diet.

HEALTHY RECIPES TO KEEP YOU SATISFIED AND ENERGIZED

Learning how to eat right starts with knowing what meals to cook to keep you feeling satisfied and energized. As part of the Medical Weight Loss Group program, you receive access to hundreds of healthy, hearty and tasty recipes.
