Weight loss pills – What are they and how do they work?

Weight loss pills have been used by hundreds of thousands of people across the UK and US, guaranteeing efficient and effective weight loss results. For some people, weight loss is trickier through exercise and diet alone, often due to elements completely out of their control such as metabolism and genetics. This is where the help of weight loss pills come in. But what are they, and how do they work?

What are weight loss pills?

Weight loss pills are a form of medication that work in the appetite centre of the brain, and act as an appetite suppressant. They block signals of hunger and curb cravings, allowing the user to successfully remain in a calorie deficit to achieve their weight loss goals.

The weight loss pills offered by Bodyline Clinic include Phentermine and Diethylpropion, as well as natural weight loss supplements that help aid weight loss. We have treated over 100,000 clients, helping them achieve their weight loss goals. 

Phentermine and Diethylpropion are not available over the counter, and must be safely prescribed by a registered clinician, which is offered here at Bodyline. Bodyline is CQC regulated, offering confidence to all our clients that we only prescribe safe and effective weight loss pills. 

Who can take weight loss pills?

Bodyline prescribes weight loss pills to those with a BMI of over 27, allowing for those who fall into the category of overweight and obese to make use of our fantastic weight loss pills. The NHS prescribes only to those with a BMI of 35, so our wider catchment allows anyone who feels they need to lose weight the opportunity to do so with the help of medical weight loss pills. 

How do they work?

Weight loss pills work in various ways, but they all find a way to target the central nervous system, blocking the signals of hunger and appetite and essentially suppressing the appetite. 

Can I buy them?

Weight loss pills are most effective when used alongside a supported programme, offering regular advice, guidance, and motivation throughout a weight loss journey. When a user just takes weight loss pills like they are a magic way to lose weight, they will not lose the amount of weight they could, and the weight may creep back when the course has been completed.

That’s why Bodyline prescribes our weight loss pills as part of a fully supported and personalised weight loss programme, ensuring our clients achieve their weight loss goals, all whilst moving them towards healthier and sustainable lifestyle changes. This ensures the weight that comes off stays off.Check out our medical weight loss programme payment plans here.

When it comes to weight loss injections, it's hard to ignore the buzz surrounding these treatments and their potential to help individuals achieve their weight loss goals. However, with the rise in popularity of these injections, it's important to be aware of the risks associated with unregulated sources and fake products. Too often we see the scary headlines of near-death experiences, serious illness, and adverse reactions from counterfeit “skinny jabs” and weight loss injections. The online black market of injectable appetite suppressing medications promises cheap prices for quick fixes, but that is not how weight loss works.
As obesity levels are rising across the world, clinicians and medical professionals are emphasizing the fact that our weight can have a significant effect on our wellbeing, both physically and mentally. That’s why it’s absolutely vital that we boost public health knowledge regarding obesity and weight health, so that we know when our weight is becoming a problem, and how we can fix it. That’s where handy tools like the BMI comes in, so we can identify whether or not our weight is healthy or unhealthy, and whether we need to address this to improve our overall weight health. Here at Bodyline, we’d like to expand on what the BMI is, how it is used to identify obesity, and how we can help to lower the BMI if it is getting too high.
