Have you ever asked yourself, “I’m eating healthy and working out, why am I not seeing results?” Or, “This particular weight loss plan worked for me five or ten years ago, but now the scale won’t move!” Or, “I’m eating and exercising the same way I always have, so why do I keep gaining weight?”
When we think about weight loss, many of us just think, “calories in, calories out.” Most of us, however, know that we are much more complex than that. There are so many underlying factors that could be contributing to our weight gain or our inability to lose weight, and this is where aNū Aesthetics and Optimal Wellness can help!

Achieving Weight Loss
The prevalence of obesity has increased dramatically in the United States and worldwide. Currently, the age-adjusted prevalence of obesity in adults is 42.4%, and there is no significant difference between men and women among all adults or by age group. The cause of obesity is multifactorial, but lifestyle changes, in particular reducing caloric intake, are the cornerstone of current approaches to weight loss and prevention of weight regain. However, weight loss (by any means) is recognized to be difficult to achieve and maintain, and there is considerable uncertainty over whether any one dietary pattern is broadly more effective than another. One promising area for improvement in the field of weight loss concerns insulin dynamics, such as insulin sensitivity and insulin secretion, and how it plays a role in body weight regulation and therefore may affect individual responses to hypocaloric diets and weight loss.
At aNu, we focus on individual goals and healthcare needs! We look for and treat underlying causes such as insulin resistance and hormone dysregulation as above.
There are different methods to achieving weight loss. Assisting with dietary modifications alone helps many patients achieve weight loss. For the short term, a high-fat/low-carbohydrate diet seems to provide the most benefit.
We also help patients find new regimens to assist with greater effectiveness in weight loss and prevention of weight gain. At the end of the day, the best course of therapy to initiate will be the one you feel you will be most compliant with, so we have made these kits easy to follow!
Get Up. Get Moving. Get Fit.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, get stronger, or become healthier from the inside out, preparing a weight loss regimen or nutrition plan is never easy. At aNu, we’ve grouped the best weight loss support products into compatible, easy-to-follow packages tailored to whatever stage of the weight loss or nutrition journey you may be.
The first 3 months – GET UP, GET MOVING, and GET FIT – include combinations of oral, injectable, and supplemental compounded and pharmaceutical-grade ingredients designed to meet you where they are.
MONTH #1 - Get Up! – For most, the hardest part of a weight loss or healthy-track plan is simply getting started. Finding the motivation and energy to take that first step may hinder someone from being his/her best self. It’s like the train is sitting in the station but isn’t moving yet!
In this introductory 30-day kit, we have included oral medications designed to give you the energy and boost you need to GET UP, off the couch, and on the way to weight loss and wellness. We’ve also included injectable products that incorporate a perfect mix of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids designed to provide the energy and kick needed to exercise and get moving. Our other supplemental product included in the kit is full of B Vitamins! Having adequate amounts of B12 in the body provides the fuel the cells and muscles need to begin a journey to wellness.
MONTH #2 - Get Moving! – You have taken that leap onto the weight-loss train, and are ready to work for the body, strength, and health you desire. Whether the train is inching along or moving at a steady pace, the goal is to keep it going. You are on the path to health and wellness, and let’s keep you there!
The GET MOVING kit is a 30-day plan which combines medications and injections to help you continue your program. They help support your muscles and body to push forward and control your food cravings and hunger. In combination, these proponents give fatigue, stress, and lethargy the 1-2-3 punch so you can stay on track to your nutrition and weight loss goals!
MONTH #3 - Get Fit! – The train is in full force! At this point, you should be seeing results, feeling better, and have the confidence and strength to keep it up. When we designed the GET FIT kit, we wanted to make sure you are able to keep up the motivation to work toward the results you’ve wanted and eventually rely less on medications to achieve your goals.
The GET FIT kit is a 60-day protocol, which focuses on keeping the muscles strong, body lean, and still provides the energy and hunger control you may need at this point. The supplement focuses on what you are choosing and eating at the dinner table, to help reduce carb and sugar cravings.
MONTH #4, 5 and 6 - Keep it Up! - We can then offer you the opinion to continue this amazing program for 3 more months based on your last appointment with your advanced medical provider.
We know you are ready to change your life for the better. At times, your advanced medical provider at aNu may make modifications, add-ons, and changes from some of these kits as sometimes one-size-may-not-fit-all. Sometimes we see a patient who has already boarded the weight loss train and is coming to us for extra help. A patient already going full-speed-ahead may only need the Get Fit! MONTH #3 kit or the Keep it Up! MONTH #4, 5 and 6. We can 100% customize this to you!
These kits are designed as an effective and easy to understand option for weight management. Please remember that weight loss should always be combined with nutrition support, a healthy diet and exercise regimen to be fully effective. aNu is here to support you, so feel free to call 816-359-3310 and speak to our wellness medical assistant to answer any questions you may have.
You will start by undergoing our personalized initial medical assessment, which includes a
blood panel, an extended medical consultation and a body composition analysis to determine your health status, specific weight loss needs and goals. If you have any health risks related to obesity, our medical providers address those issues and concerns, as well as your overall health and wellness.
To design the most effective weight loss program possible for your unique needs, we must capture a complete and comprehensive picture of your health, as well as intimately track your progress. We can do this with the InBody 270 body composition analyzer. Unlike standard BMI, this cutting-edge device records your skeletal muscle mass, weight and body fat percentage. Analyzing your body composition with such precise detail more accurately shows alterations, helping us to better determine which approaches you need to capitalize on greater health and wellness.
HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, the hormone women make when they are pregnant. We offer HCG injections as an option in our customized Medical Weight Loss Program because it can help reduce hunger while also preserving muscle mass during rapid weight loss. Preserving muscle is vital to long-term weight loss because it keeps your metabolism from slowing down. What’s more, HCG hormone allows the body to tap into fat reserves in the midsection and burn them, targeting fat areas in the abdomen, “love handles,” back, thighs, hips and buttocks.
Carefully formulated by Dr. Watkins, aNū’s Turbo Shot is designed to help aid your weight loss program by stimulating fat burning, boosting energy, lowering glucose and cholesterol levels, improving sleep and immune function, and more. Performed weekly as needed, aNū’s Turbo Shot includes lipotropic agents (choline, methionine, inositol) as well as chromium + carnitine with a highly absorbable form of vitamin B12 called methylcobalamin + vitamin B complex (B2, B3 and B5).
The natural aging process can cause us to experience increased fat, decreased muscle mass and low energy, common symptoms which can result from a deficiency in adult growth hormone peptides. Here at aNū, we may prescribe peptide injections to enhance your weight loss program while mitigating the negative side effects of aging. Peptides, in combination with other weight loss tools, can help provide such benefits as boosting muscle mass, strength and energy, improving sleep quality and mood, and much more.
