Weight Loss in Tampa, FL

Achieving fitness goals is not something that can be done overnight. It takes time, dedication, and most importantly, a solid plan. Without a plan, it’s all too easy to get sidetracked or give up altogether. That’s why at New Tampa Internal Medicine Associates in Tampa, FL, we take the time to custom-tailor a weight loss plan for each individual patient.

We offer a wide range of treatments to help you lose weight, including FlexSure, lipotropic injections, B12 injections, and prescription medications. If you are ready to get serious about your fitness goals, contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Weight Loss Treatments

When you visit our offices for your consultation, we will do several things in order to determine the best treatment plan for you. First, we will get a better understanding of your medical history and current health condition. We will also assess your fitness goals and how much weight you would like to lose.

Based on this information, we will recommend a few different treatments for you to consider. These treatments may include:


FlexSure treatment uses radiofrequency energy to help break down fat cells. This treatment is effective because it targets the root cause of weight gain: the accumulation of fat cells. By breaking down these cells, FlexSure helps to reduce the overall amount of fat in the body. In addition, the peel & stick applicator is particularly effective in targeting hard-to-reach areas, making it an ideal solution for those who struggle with stubborn pockets of fat.

Lipotropic Injections

Lipotropic injections are a popular treatment that many people turn to when diet and exercise alone aren’t enough. But what are these injections, and how do they work? Lipotropic injections contain a blend of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are essential for the metabolism of fat. The three most important components are methionine, inositol, and choline.

Methionine is an amino acid that helps to break down fats and detoxify the body. Inositol is a type of sugar that helps regulate insulin. Choline is an organic compound that aids in the digestion of fat. Together, these three nutrients help to accelerate the body’s natural fat-burning process, resulting in rapid progress. Lipotropic injections are typically administered once or twice per week, and most patients see noticeable results within just a few weeks.

B12 Injections

B12 is a water-soluble vitamin that helps the body convert food into energy, which is why it’s often used as a treatment for losing weight. When you receive a B12 injection, the vitamin is directly absorbed into your bloodstream, where it then travels to your cells and tissues.

In addition to boosting your metabolism, B12 injections can also boost energy levels for those experiencing vitamin B12 deficiency. This can be helpful if you’re trying to lose weight by exercising more, as it can make it easier for you to stick to your workout routine.

Meal Plan

One of the best ways to lose weight and keep it off is by following a healthy meal plan. But what should a healthy meal plan consist of? And how can you make sure that your meal plan is tailored specifically for you and your individual needs? A healthy meal plan should include a variety of nutrient-rich foods from all the food groups. That means plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

It’s also crucial to make sure that you’re getting enough calories and staying within your daily calorie budget. At New Tampa Internal Medicine, we believe that one size does NOT fit all regarding meal plans. That’s why we offer custom meal plans that are tailored specifically for you and your unique situation. We take into account things like your age, height, weight, activity level, food preferences, and any dietary restrictions or allergies you may have.

Prescription Medication

Prescription medications are designed to help people who are obese or overweight lose weight. These medications come in different forms, but they all work by helping to decrease your appetite or make you feel full after eating. Commonly prescribed medications include phentermine, lorcaserin, bupropion-naltrexone, and orlistat.

Some of these medications are available over the counter, while others require a prescription from a doctor. It’s crucial to note that these medications should not be used as a quick fix for losing weight. They are best used in combination with other treatments, such as a healthy diet and exercise. This is because no single treatment is likely to be effective on its own, and a combination of treatments is often necessary to achieve lasting results.


Counseling is a type of therapy that focuses on helping individuals lose weight in a healthy way. It usually involves meeting with a therapist on a regular basis to discuss your progress, challenges, and any other issues related to your weight loss journey.

During counseling sessions, your therapist will provide helpful tips and advice on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle changes that can help you lose weight. The counselor will also help address any underlying emotional issues that may be contributing to your struggle with losing weight. For example, if you’re using food as a way to cope with stress or anxiety, counseling can help you find healthier ways to deal with those emotions.

General Weight Analysis

General weight analysis involves measuring your body composition, including factors such as your height, weight, body fat percentage, muscle mass, and more. There are many reasons why weight analysis is essential. First and foremost, it provides you with concrete data that can be used to track your progress over time.

Additionally, weight analysis can help to identify any underlying health conditions that may be contributing to your weight gain. Finally, weight analysis appointments provide you with accountability and support from a trained professional who can cheer you on throughout your journey.

One of my favorite doctors. He's kind , patient , listens to your concerns , and really goes above and beyond with your health being a priority. I've never had a bad experience and I've been coming to this practice for a few years. Everyone is really nice , the receptionists and the nurses. Never once has there been any issues. I happened to see a bad review and I couldn't believe it. Best practice I've personally been to and I just wanted to clarify because this isn't anything less than five star

Dr. Farooqui has been a very good doctor since I’ve been his client over the past year. He is very helpful and knowledgeable. As are his office staff and other medical personnel also. I’m so thankful I found his practice!
