Medically Guided WEIGHT LOSS

 

For successful, long-term weight control, a weight loss program must focus on your overall health, not just taking a pill or eating special food. In a medically guided weight loss program, you’ll have our BU Wellness experts working side by side with you to help you reach your goals. Specially trained medical weight loss professionals will assess your health and medical issues to develop a weight loss plan specifically for you. Depending on your personal needs and goals, you may receive prescription medications and supplements, as well as weight loss consultations and nutrition and exercise counseling.

 

With our Medically Guided Weight Loss Program, each week you will receive a fat burner injection to stimulate the release of stored fat. You will also receive a weekly vitamin injection to improve your metabolism and increase energy. We will guide and counsel you throughout your weight loss program to give you the information and support your need every step of the way.

HCG program

About HCG:

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by the placenta

In pregnant women and almost completely controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus throughout the pregnancy.  Contrary to popular belief, however, the HCG used in the HCG diet protocols is a variation of the HCG form used for fertility treatments, and in a much smaller dose.  All HCG used for medical purpose is natural, but created in laboratories from sterile cells. It is not extracted from women or animal urine – a common misconception.

The injections of HCG work by operating on the weight-regulating center of the brain and stimulating it into weight reduction.  

 

HCG Diet Program:

HCG diet has two programs depending on the goal of individual weight loss: 23 days and         40days, that combines a daily dose of HCG with a very low-calorie diet for rapid weight loss under physician supervision.  Most people lose 10-15 pounds with 23day program and 15-20 pounds with 40day program.

Prior to treatment, your doctor will request blood tests and perform a general health

assessment to determine if this plan would be a reasonable option for you.

We will provide you with HCG injections, the HCG diet plan, HCG shopping guide, daily

food journal and the maintenance diet plan.

  

 During the weekly visit to the office, you will be evaluated for the progress of weight loss and

 receive weekly injection of MIC (Methionine, Inositol, Choline) Lipotropic agent with Vitamin 12

 to support the fat burning, provide more energy and boost immune system.

 The HCG diet is generally a very low fat , very low-calorie diet and divided into three phases:

 

  1. Loading phase: Start taking HCG and eat plenty of high fat, high-calorie foods for 2days.

  2. Weight loss phase: Continue taking HCG and eat only 500-600 calories per day for

26days or 43days depending on the program you choose (extra 3 more days after injection is finished).

  1. Maintenance phase: Stop taking HCG.  Gradually increase food intake but avoid sugar and carbohydrate for 3weeks.

 

Follow up visits and weigh-ins are included in the program during your HCG diet to help you

stay on track.  

 

Benefits of our HCG Program:

 

  • Rapid Weight Loss (.5-1/lb per day).

  • Physician supervised for your safety.

  • Targets “problem” fat around your abdomen, hips & thighs.

  • Resets your metabolism to help maintain your weight loss.

  • Reduces your appetite.

  • We use only pharmaceutical strength HCG, not a ‘homeopathic’, meaning they don’t actually contain any real HCG.

  • Lower triglycerides and improve HDL with low carbohydrate diet

Contraindication for HCG treatment

 

   ▪  Pituitary tumor, ovarian tumor, prostatic cancer

   ▪  Primary ovarian failure, premature menopause

   ▪  Active thrombophlebitis, thromboembolic event

   ▪  Allergy to HCG

   ▪  Polycystic ovarian syndrome (due to hyper-ovarian stimulation)

   ▪  IUD for birth control (need the 2nd form of birth control)

 

This program in not just a diet.  It is a lifestyle change. There is no magic wand. Our purpose is to educate and support a healthy lifestyle so that when you reach your goal, you are able to maintain your weight on your own.  However, if you want to repeat the HCG round for further weight reduction, you should wait a minimum of 6 weeks before reintroducing the hormone back into the body. And every HCG round after that, the wait time should be increased by two weeks.  For example: 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 10 weeks, etc.

HCG diet plan is strict, but simple.  If you follow the plan exactly, you will lose a large amount of weight in a short period of time.
