We offer a variety of weight loss strategies and would love to have you come in for a consultation to find out what is best for you. Weight loss is something that can be done quickly or slowly but we want to make sure it is not a symptom of something else that may need treatment. Certainly, our American way of life lends to us gaining weight. We are just beginning to realize how our overly processed foods and lack of exercise are affecting our health and I think we are on the edge of a “food revolution.” This doesn’t help those of us who have already gained that extra weight. We will spend much of the time at your first visit discovering what program is right for you and often it may be a combination of several programs that work out best. We will also look through your medications after you start the program to determine if one of these may be adding to your weight problem.
Comprehensive Lifestyle Program
The Comprehensive Lifestyle Program combines diet, exercise and behavioral modification and is likely the most important strategy for weight management. Each of these three can cause anxiety but certainly doesn’t need to. A change in diet can be as easy as eliminating just one food from your daily intake.
There is much more to the puzzle for a thyroid diagnosis than a simple TSH test. Especially if you are on thyroid medications and are not feeling well, then you may need additional testing. We do extensive thyroid testing and can not only get you feeling better but also teach you the reasons why only getting a TSH just does not cover all the bases. By looking at the complete picture, we can tailor your medication to treat your thyroid more appropriately.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
A naturally-occurring hormone produced by women during pregnancy. It is often prescribed to aid fertility but has also been found to benefit people seeking weight loss solutions. hCG is most often administered via injection.
When you follow the hCG diet to the letter, your results can be quite significant. Under the direction of our clinicians, you can expect dramatic weight loss, improved metabolism, and increased energy.
When you follow the program correctly and adhere to the guidance given, the hCG program can be a safe way to lose weight and change your dietary habits.
Although the low-calorie diet that accompanies the hCG injections is quite strict, it acts as a “jump-start” to your weight loss and assists in speeding up your metabolism. hCG is said to “reset” the hypothalamus and change how the body burns fat.
Dietary supplements and medical foods can often be beneficial in losing weight but there are so many out there it’s difficult to know what to choose. In addition, there are so many dirty little secrets among the supplement industry that even if you know what to take it can be a mystery as to which brand to use. Depending on your lab results it may be necessary to use supplements and medical foods to boost your metabolism and increase your weight loss. We can help you determine which of these are right for you.
There are a number of medications on the market today and the choices can be confusing. We offer Phentermine, Contrave, Qsyma, Xenical (orlistat), Belviq (lorcaserin), (Victoza) liraglutide, Topamax (topiramate), bupropion, naltrexone, Didrex (benzphetamine), Bontril (phendimetrazine), diethylpropion and more.
