Fat is Stubborn, but We’ve Got You Covered with Medical Weight Loss Services
The topic of weight loss and weight management has been hot for decades. Years ago, we had Jack LaLanne. Then we had Jane Fonda. Now we have virtually thousands of Beach Body videos. The line of fitness and nutrition gurus is long, let’s just say that. However, what many people have found is that diet and fitness trends don’t suit every body. Sometimes, a little more help is needed. That’s where medical weight loss comes in.
With the right program, it is possible to lose approximately one pound a day. A day! It brings us so much joy to help patients who have been struggling to lose a few pounds a month to make such significant strides in their health and wellness journey. We do so by utilizing the proven strategies of hCG, a fat-burning fuel that has been in use for more than fifty years.
What is hCG and How Does It Work?
HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone that pregnant women naturally produce. It is believed that the purpose of this hormone is to regulate metabolism during the early stages of pregnancy. In studies, researchers have found that recombinant hCG is a critical aspect of the 237 amino acid heterodimer, one that mimics luteinizing hormone (LH). Stay with us here.
Luteinizing hormone is made by the pituitary gland to perform various endocrine functions, including testosterone production. This is where science has found hCG to be beneficial in weight loss. When hCG injections are included in a particular diet program, the hormone accelerates the mobilization of visceral fat, the cells that tend to hang around the thighs, hips, and midsection. Also, because hCG enhances testosterone production, its inclusion in medical weight loss supports muscle retention.
The hCG Diet
HCG does not work all on its own. It has taken years to develop predictable medical weight loss, and the standard hCG protocol coincides with the Simeon Protocol diet. This short-term diet plan provides less than 1,000 calories a day to reset the natural metabolism of the body. Usually, such a low-calorie diet would be unsustainable even for a few weeks due to hunger and muscle atrophy. HCG injections resolve these issues, enabling patients to lose weight much more easily.
