Why most weight loss plans fail:

  • Generic plans don’t account for differences in metabolism, lifestyle, and medical history
  • Extreme or restrictive diets are hard to maintain long-term, leading to yo-yo dieting
  • Many plans don’t address underlying issues like hormonal imbalances, stress, or gut health
  • Quick fixes and fad diets often prioritize rapid weight loss over sustainable, healthy habits
  • Without ongoing support, it’s challenging to stay motivated and make lasting changes
  • Effective weight loss requires addressing emotional factors that contribute to overeating

An integrative approach to weight loss

Dr. Ivanina’s integrative approach to weight loss combines the best of natural and medical interventions for lasting results. We focus on personalized diet plans, supplements, and herbs to support your weight loss journey naturally. Additionally, we offer advanced medications like Semaglutide (Ozempic/Wegovy) and Tirzepatide (Mounjaro/Zepbound) to suppress hunger pangs and help you stick to your healthy diets without persistent cravings. By addressing the root causes of weight gain, including gut health, we support long-lasting weight loss.

Personalized diet plans and supplements

At the heart of Dr. Ivanina’s integrative approach to weight loss are personalized diet plans. We understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, so we create a balanced, nutrient-rich diet that supports your body’s natural processes. Our plans emphasize whole foods, proper hydration, and mindful eating habits to promote sustainable weight loss and overall wellness.

In addition to personalized diet plans, we incorporate targeted supplements to enhance weight loss. These supplements are selected based on your specific needs and address deficiencies, boost metabolism, and support digestive health. By combining a customized diet with the right supplements, we help you achieve optimal results and maintain a healthy weight.

Prescription weight loss medications

For patients needing additional support, Dr. Ivanina offers prescription weight loss medications like Semaglutide (Ozempic/Wegovy) and Tirzepatide (Mounjaro/Zepbound). These medications are clinically proven to aid in weight management by regulating appetite and enhancing metabolism. When combined with personalized diet plans and lifestyle changes, they provide a powerful tool for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.


Semaglutide, marketed as Ozempic/Wegovy, promotes weight loss by mimicking the hormone GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1). GLP-1 is naturally produced in the intestines and plays a crucial role in regulating appetite and blood sugar levels. Semaglutide enhances the release of insulin while inhibiting glucagon, reducing blood sugar spikes after meals. It also slows gastric emptying, leading to increased feelings of fullness and reduced appetite. This combination of effects helps individuals consume fewer calories, promoting significant weight loss.


Tirzepatide, known as Mounjaro/Zepbound, promotes weight loss by acting on both GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) receptors. These hormones are involved in regulating appetite and glucose metabolism. Tirzepatide enhances insulin secretion, reduces glucagon levels, and slows gastric emptying, which leads to prolonged satiety and reduced food intake. By activating these dual pathways, Tirzepatide effectively controls blood sugar levels and reduces appetite, resulting in weight loss.
