Weight Loss And Management

Weight Loss And Management

Everyone is looking for that “magic formula” that shrinks fat, builds muscle, and makes us look exactly like movie stars. Unfortunately, there is no magic pill that will transform our bodies overnight. However, there are many things that we can do to help with weight management and weight loss. We work with patients of all starting points to assist them in reaching their goals. Sometimes it is a quick journey and sometimes in does take some work. If you are interested in learning more about losing some weight in a healthy way, keep reading to see what really goes in to a weight loss journey.

When we start looking at weight, we need to consider a few important factors:

  • Hormone imbalances- Are you currently dealing with some imbalances that are stopping you from losing weight?
  • Diet- What does your currently diet look like and are you willing to make a change?
  • Lifestyle and activity- Are you getting daily or weekly exercise? Do you participate in any hobbies?
  • Metabolism and thyroid function- How is your metabolic engine working?

Getting a clear picture of where you are in your health and goals will help determine where we need to start.

HCG Diet Program

The HCG program is considered a quick weight loss solution that can reduce excess fat by up to 1 pound a day. It is a medically assisted weight loss treatment that requires a prescription so an initial patient consult is essential to review your overall health and goals.

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.

Body Contouring

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.
