Everyone is looking for that “magic formula” that shrinks fat, builds muscle, and makes us look exactly how movie stars appear on screen. Unfortunately, there is no pill that will transform us overnight but there are many things that we can do to help with weight management and weight loss.
When we start looking at weight, we need to consider a few things:
- Hormone imbalances
- Lifestyle and activity
- Metabolism and thyroid function
Depending on where you are and your goals will help determine where we may need to start.
HCG Diet Program
This program is considered a quick weight loss solution that can reduce fat by up to 1 pound a day.
So what is the HCG program?
The HCG program is a medically monitored weight management plan that uses hormones to kick start the bodies metabolism into weight loss. HCG, or human choriogonadotropic hormone, is naturally produced by the body and is a signal to release fat stores because the body needs the energy.
Each plan has a duration of 23 days. The first 2 days are loading days to prime the bodies metabolism into high function before starting the HCG injections. The next 21 days are focused on calorie restriction (roughly 500-800 calories a day) along with HCG injections. This seems very strict but with the body releasing stores of energy from fat, the body has enough to function fully without issue.
It is important to ensure that eating habits are in place before starting the HCG diet to ensure long term success. By changing eating habits before the HCG diet, you reduce the risk of the yo-yo effect.
Metabolic Reset Program
Taking a deep look at all the pathways that influence fat metabolism and weight management, we can reset these pathways and balance specific hormones for long lasting results. By taking this route, you get a deep understanding for the body, your hormones, and how they all work together to promote optimal metabolism and fat reduction.
This program includes a full start to finish approach where we look at:
- Diagnostic lab testing
- Hormone and lab balancing
- Diet and healthy eating habits
- Nutritional support
- Lifestyle coaching
- Supplement suggestions
- Prescription(s) if required
The metabolic rest program is more than just a weight loss plan, it is lifestyle change that will optimize your health, correct your hormones, and increase your metabolism for long term weight loss success.
This technique is designed for those that are looking to contour or target stubborn areas such as the underchin (double chin), lower abdomen, glutes, or bra pad area. Using either an injectable or machine based treatment (Belkyra, Vanquish, Exillis).
Kybella (Belkyra) is an injectable lipotropic agent that helps to rupture localized fat cells. Naturally produced by the body in the digestive track, deoxycholic acid breaks down fat cell membranes for easy absorption. When used as an injection, fat cells rupture and the body naturally absorbs the fat and sends it to the liver to be eliminated from the body.
Fat dissolving technology such as the BTL Vanquish or Coolscupting target larger areas of extra adipose tissue. Using either increased temperature or cold temperature to damage fat cell membranes, the technology assists the body in eliminating excess fat from the body to achieve a more contoured appearance.Book an Appointment
