A Fitter, Slimmer, Healthier You!
Now you CAN finally get the results you’ve always wanted!
A ‘leaner, slimmer you’ is the promise of innumerable diets, health club contracts, pre-packaged ‘meals ready to eat,’…but often the results don’t really justify the cost or commitment! The body simply responds to the new activity or diet by ‘adapting’ itself to these new realities and the “costly solution” doesn’t work or the patient even gains weight!
It’s all about metabolism.
Keeping the carbs away.
Activated B-12 Injections
A powerhouse vitamin, with essential roles.
Think: detoxify your liver.
Clinically proven, FDA approved.
Eat/Exercises According to Blood Type
The diet that’s made for your body.
Virtually all of the weight loss programs in our society fail the individual because those programs target a rapid loss of weight rather than assist the individual to lose weight in a healthy manner with the end goal of keeping it off for a lifetime. One of the reasons for the failure of most programs stems from the lack of addressing the metabolism and only focusing on starvation. You can’t just simply starve someone for a period of time and expect the body to want to cooperate long term. The body’s number one priority is to survive, and the lesson the body learns through starvation is only to store more. Starvation and gaining weight doesn’t seem all that appealing now does it?
We like to describe our weight loss plan as a two part program:
Part 1: Lifestyle changes which include individualized nutrition (eating according to your blood type), and individualized exercise (exercise according to your blood type). I wish we all could simply just do this part only and it would work for everyone, but the fact remains that our lives and bodies are just not that simple. Most of us have tried diet and exercise and most of us have failed at that alone so that isn’t very realistic for most of us with our busy lives! Believe it or not, most studies show less than 10% of individuals are able to lose weight and keep it off with diet and exercise alone.
Part 2: We all use the tools of modern science, vitamin and herbal vitamin supplementation, and prescription medication to help get your body to respond the way it should. While supplements and prescription medication alone are not a ‘magic’ tandem; used alongside an individualized plan, with a clear goal, and under medical supervision, they do work amazingly well! Studies have shown that when combining improved nutrition, appropriate exercise and modern science, the ability to lose weight and keep it off dramatically improves. Everyday patients come to us sick and tired, of being ‘sick and tired!’ Their bodies are not operating on “all cylinders”, they lack energy, find themselves unmotivated, and stuck in a rut. These same patients not ONLY LOSE WEIGHT, but they discover new energy, a more positive outlook, and regain their quality of life!

Activated B-12 Injections
Vitamin B-12 plays a major role in several of the body’s essential functions. One such role includes DNA synthesis and the formation of red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body and drives metabolism. It also helps the body convert fats and proteins into energy and aids in the breakdown of carbohydrates.
B-12 is a water soluble vitamin i.e. your body metabolizes what it can and flushes out the excess. Your body does not store theses vitamins so it is important to get them consistently in your diet or as a supplement.
Most oral B-12 preparations are not absorbed by your tissues, it is washed out of the body, this is why injection and B-12 patches are the best method of delivery.
Lipotropic injections will aid in the reduction of fat in the liver. This improves the capacity of the liver to convert more fat in the body into usable fuel. The liver is the primary organ that metabolizes fat in the body. If we don’t clean the liver then our body’s ability to burn fat is markedly reduced even with proper nutrition and exercise. These revolutionary injections will also aid to detoxify the body, increase the metabolism, decrease cholesterol and increase energy!
By definition a lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat.
(lipo=fat, tropic=stimulate) within the liver.
Aside from weight loss, there can be many benefits from the use of lipotropic injections. Lipotropics are formulated to enhance liver function, which helps detoxify the body, increase metabolism, and store glycogen, the principal storage form of glucose. A healthy liver also secretes bile more effectively, which in turn aids in digestion and breakdown of fats. Lipotropic injection helps dissolve and break down fat so that it can be removed from your body through your waste. The injection stimulates the creation of lecithin in your liver. That helps to make the cholesterol in your body more liquid and this decreases cholesterol in your blood.
Many weight-loss experts believe lipotropic injections boost the immune system by stimulating the growth of antibodies, which detect and destroy foreign and abnormal tissue. Lipotropics are also known to increase energy levels, which may enhance mood, vitality and overall health.
- Helps remove and prevent excess fat build up in the liver
- Aids in the metabolism of fats
- Helps to reduce cholesterol
- Helps relieve and prevent fatigue
- Acts as an antioxidant (deactivates free radicals)
- Our most successful patients do the Combo-injection which combines B-12 and the Lipotropic solution into one simple injection!

A keto diet is well known for being a low-carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low-carb diet, low-carb high-fat (LCHF), etc.
When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.
Glucose is the easiest molecule for your body to convert and use as energy so that it will be chosen over any other energy source.
Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodstream by taking it around the body.
Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy source, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.
Ketosis is a natural process the body initiates to help us survive when food intake is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver.
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to drive your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates. Never is a very low calorie diet appropriate, and we should all be careful of such fads.
Our bodies are incredibly adaptive to what you put into it – when you overload it with fats and take away carbohydrates, it will begin to burn ketones as the primary energy source. Optimal ketone levels offer many health, weight loss, physical and mental performance benefits.
Maintaining a Ketogenic Diet has been proven to help those with:
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Type 1 Diabetes
- High Blood Pressure
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Chronic Inflammation
- High Blood Sugar Levels
- Heart Disease
- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and insulin resistance
- Fatty Liver Disease
Dr. Knighton uses a comprehensive program for the treatment of overweight patients where nutrition and exercise are based on the individual’s blood type. When indicated, Dr. Knighton will monitor and oversee the medical treatment and use FDA approved prescription medications (i.e. phentermine, phendimetrazine, and/or diethylpropion).
A physician-supervised weight loss program may be the safest and wisest way to not only lose weight, but maintain the weight loss long-term.
Eat/ Exercise According to Blood Type
Your blood type is the key to you body’s entire immune system as it controls the influence of viruses, bacteria, infections, chemicals, stress ad weight. Literally it is a marker of survival.
Have you ever wondered why two people can follow the same diet plan and one person loses and the other one does not? More likely they have different blood types. If we eat according to our blood type, I can tell you which meats are best for you; which fruits and vegetables are best for you; which nuts, oils and grains are best for you, etc. I can even tell you how much protein you need per day to reach your goal weight. If you are going to sacrifice to eat healthy, why not choose the option that works the best?
If you eat according to your blood type you can:
- Greatly improve digestion by decreasing inflammation throughout the digestive tract
- Help burn food more efficiently by dramatically increasing our metabolic rate
- Improve the interaction and balance between insulin and metabolic hormones
