Why is weight loss so hard?
There are real, biological reasons that make losing weight hard. Too many times we blame ourselves, as if it’s some kind of personal shortcoming when losing weight either doesn’t happen, or is tremendously slow.
Your body will fight you to keep the weight on in several ways, including:
- The more you lose weight, the more your metabolism wants to slow down to keep it
- Your body might have built up resistance to weight-controlling hormones
- An over- or under-active thyroid could be hindering your efforts
- As you lose weight, your body burns less calories in general
This seems unfair, doesn’t it? And those are just a few ways that getting to a healthier weight is hindered by the way nature works. But that doesn’t mean you can’t lose weight effectively.
First Things First: a Healthy Plan
Vively Body Science weight loss supplements in Plymouth can help you achieve your weight loss goals. However, you first need to find a weight loss plan that works for you. We always recommend seeking guidance from your doctor/healthcare provider.
This first step ensures that you create a strategy to lose the weight but keep your health above all. Too many fad diets out there make wild promises about weight loss. If you choose to try one (or more) of them, you might even lose the weight when you’re on them.
The question is, at what cost? What has that style of eating/exercising done to your health for the sake of losing weight? And how do they prepare your body and metabolism for after the weight is lost? Is your body in starvation mode—which actually makes you gain weight? Have you created better habits, or will you immediately pick up the ones that got you into trouble in the first place? Has this fad diet set you up for failure?
Your doctor will help you better understand your path ahead, and plan for all possibilities. Diet, exercise, and mental/emotional support should all be part of your game plan for success. And by success, we mean better health.
No Doctor? We can help.
Our first priority is better health for life. So if you don’t have a doctor or nutritionist, we can recommend several in the Plymouth/Minneapolis/Wayzata area who are excellent at helping clients achieve and maintain better health.

Vively’s Weight Loss Supplements in Plymouth
Vively Body Science doesn’t offer weight loss regimens. What we do offer and encourage, are the supplemental strategies to boost your weight loss efforts.
When your body is fighting you to lose weight, you can use safe, supplemental strategies to support your healthy weight loss. Let’s look at some of the weight loss supplements in Plymouth that could provide you with extra firepower as you spark up your weight loss plan.
Oral Weight Loss Supplements: Craving Control®
Craving Control from Pellecome combines clinically studied extracts of the Piper betle leaf and Dolichos biflorus seed plus acetyl-L-carnitine in orally-taken dosages. Craving Control supports three metabolic hormones: adiponectin, leptin, and ghrelin. These hormones help control appetite, satiety, and fat metabolism.
As part of a healthy weight management program, Craving Control weight loss supplements in Plymouth use the best vitamin and mineral ingredients, formulated to the highest standards. We think you’ll find that these capsules surpass all others for safe and effective nutritional support.
You can utilize Craving Control during your weight-loss period, and at times when you might need more weight-loss help to maintain your goal.
Sub-dermal Weight Loss Supplements: Naltrexone®
Sometimes weight loss efforts can be impeded by binge eating or habitual eating—those overpowering cravings that seem to block out our reasonable thoughts of self-control.
Naltrexone is a drug used to treat dependence. As researchers discovered the addictive nature of food (especially sugar) they realized that Naltrexone could be applied to help fight the body’s endorphin cravings during specific physical/emotional states.
Naltrexone in itself doesn’t cause weight loss. But when combined with a healthy diet plan and other possible supplements (such as Pellicome’s Craving Control mentioned above), it can help you fight the urges that damage your weight loss efforts.
How Naltrexone is delivered into the body.
Your provider will insert a tiny pellet under your skin. This minimally invasive treatment lasts for 4 months. After that, they’ll replace the pellet, likely once or twice to get maximum benefit and establish healthier habits.
Generally, 2 cycles of Naltrexone at 4 months per cycle can help break a sugar/food addiction. More may be required depending on your weight loss plan and your personal goals.
Injectable Weight Loss Supplements
Vively Body Science has other injectable supplements that can help incur significant weight loss. The regimen is extremely individualized, ensuring dosage and effects are suited for your specific situation.
Based upon a weekly injected treatment plan, we could help patients decrease their food intake for weight loss. Other possibilities include moderating the metabolic responses that usually occur with calorie restriction, such as your body’s inclination to begin preserving as many calories as possible from food.
Ask about these other supplements, and lets see how Vively can help keep you on track to a leaner, healthier you.
IV Therapy Weight Loss Supplements
Intravenous therapies, or “drip” therapies, as well as IM injections at Vively Body Science Medical Spa can support your weight loss plan in 3 ways:
- Fat processing
For example, if you and your healthcare provider have determined that a very low-calorie diet is necessary for your better health, a drip therapy can introduce specific vitamins and nutrients directly into your bloodstream, bypassing the destructive digestive process.
Or, MIC injections—sometimes called a “fat burner,” “lipo burner shot,” or “lipo shot”—helps your liver process fats quicker and detoxifies your body better.
If you’re feeling depleted of energy, a B12 “energy shot” or “Youth Revive” bag helps you sleep better, and helps lighten or erase those craving-inducing mid-afternoon crashes through cortisol stabilization.
Help During and After Weight Loss
Our weight loss supplements in Plymouth don’t end when you achieve your weight loss goals.
Weight loss itself can cause some aesthetic and/or comfort issues. Plus, your weight loss could be part of a larger overall goal for your physique. Vively Body Science has procedures that can further support your successful wellbeing.
Sagging Skin Post Weight-loss
We applaud significant weight loss when it contributes to better health! Every one of us at Vively knows that it can be a very hard mission to accomplish, and you have our deepest respect.
But, skin had to adapt to that extra weight by stretching. When you lose a large amount of weight, especially within a shorter amount of time, that can leave you with excess, “baggy” skin.
This skin can sometimes rub against clothing or other skin and become uncomfortable. Or you may not feel comfortable with the way it looks—especially in warmer weather when clothing tends to cover less.
At Vively Body Science, we offer Skintyte® infrared skin tightening treatments to nourish and naturally tighten your skin. This non-invasive therapy uses advanced infrared light technology and patient-tailored filters to deeply heat dermal collagen. Your body’s natural reaction firms the treatment area’s loose or sagging skin.
Commonly treated areas include:
- Neck/lower face
Remove Stubborn Fat
Sadly, weight loss doesn’t get rid of adipose (fat) cells. It does pretty much exactly what it says, reducing weight which often mostly includes the lipids stored within fat cells. Healthy weight loss targets that weight while trying to maintain (or increase) muscle mass.
Those fat cells don’t leave; they just get smaller. And where there are increased concentrations of fat cells, you’ll see their presence in a number of ways, from bulges and overlaps to an exaggerated appearance of cellulite . Those concentrations can also hide the muscle beneath.
For permanent fat reduction, as in the permanent removal of the adipose cells themselves, we offer CoolSculpting® Elite. This non-invasive procedure applies a gel pad or gel and applicator to the targeted area. Next, your provider uses vacuum suction to draw the tissue into the applicator cup, which delivers controlled cooling to the treatment area.
This treatment destroys the fat cells, which are then eliminated naturally by your body. Keep in mind that CoolSculpting Elite doesn’t work as a weight loss technique. Rather, it can help reduce bulk, target those stubborn areas and maximize the results of your weight loss and your exercise.
You could remove up to 20 to 25% of the target area fat cells with each treatment! However, fat cells are tricky. If you don’t continue with a healthy eating and exercise regimen, the remaining fat cells can expand. This is why a comprehensive approach is the best way to maintain long term success.
Increase Muscle Mass
Now that you’ve lost the weight through a good diet and exercise, you might want to show off that hard work with more definition and contour to your body.
One of the ways you can accentuate your body contouring / body sculpting effort is through CoolTone® muscle strengthening. The advanced CoolTone technology uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions—thousands more than you could ever achieve on your own in a session duration.
During a CoolTone treatment, you’ll relax in our clinic while your specialist adjusts the settings to maximize your results. You’ll soon see stronger, leaner, more defined muscles in target groups and areas such as:
CoolTone increases muscle mass, which in turn burns more calories, more efficiently, than non-muscle-mass tissues. So it’s still a win-win for feeling better health and wellbeing!
