Weight Loss Q & A

What is the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program™?

The Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program (SPWLP) is a medically-supervised program that uses Serotonin Formula™, a patented serotonin supplement that helps suppress appetite and carbohydrate cravings. Used in combination with an FDA-approved prescription appetite medication, when needed, and backed by long-term behavioral modification techniques, SPWLP is designed to help you reduce your caloric intake so you can lose a fairly significant amount of weight in a relatively short amount of time.

How does the serotonin supplement work?

Serotonin is a natural brain chemical that affects your body in a wide variety of ways. A serotonin deficiency has been linked to a number of problems, including obesity, anxiety, depression, carbohydrate cravings, PMS, migraine headaches, and fibromyalgia. Some prescription antidepressants and appetite suppressants are designed to artificially raise serotonin levels, but SPWLP is the only program that uses an actual serotonin supplement to decrease appetite, as well as carbohydrate cravings.

What is the program like?

SPWLP is a 12-week plan that’s tailored to meet your individual weight loss goals. Each program begins with a comprehensive physical exam, complete with an electrocardiogram and laboratory blood tests, followed by program-specific information and nutrition and exercise counseling. After you receive your serotonin supplement, you meet with a personal trainer who continues to work with you for the duration of the program.

You’ll have weekly check-in visits with Dr. Ryan for regular weigh-ins, body fat and circumference measurements, blood pressure checks, and a thorough assessment of your heart and lung function. During these weekly appointments, Dr. Ryan asks you how the program is working for you, and offers advice on ways to enhance your results.

What kind of results can I expect?

Most women lose an average of 25 pounds, and most men lose an average of 35 pounds, over the course of the 12-week program. You may lose more or less than the average amount, depending on your overall goal, individual body response, and adherence to the program.

If you started SPWLP with the intention to lose many more pounds than can safely be achieved in a 12-week period, you and Dr. Ryan can analyze your success and decide if it makes good medical sense to extend your program. Some patients have been able to successfully lose over 100 pounds by undertaking three 12-week sessions, for a total of 36 weeks.      

Is the program safe?

Yes. As a medically-supervised program that uses a natural supplement, SPWLP is a safe and effective way to shed excess pounds. Because Dr. Ryan is committed to providing her patients with only the best possible care, both she and members of her team tested the program themselves, with excellent results.
