Medical Weight Loss Programs (HCG diet) Jesup, GA

One of the major issues that arise when people begin a diet is sticking with the diet through the entire process. Other issues can include having difficulty maintaining the new weight after successfully completing the diet. Many people will lose weight, only to gain it back after returning to a normal lifestyle. Part of the reason for this is not learning portion control and techniques for a healthy lifestyle.

Benefits of the HCG Diet

Other people will invest in store-bought diet programs that are not effective and are a waste of money. Instead of drawing out the weight loss process and struggling with adjusting to a new diet with less food, invest in the HCG diet. This diet will help to limit calorie intake to promote efficient and effective weight loss.

With our medical weight loss program, we can help guide you on the path toward a healthy lifestyle and weight the increases your quality of life.

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin that is a natural hormone in the body. By using this hormone in controlled doses with professional supervision, we can help to limit one’s caloric intake and promote weight loss. Benefits of the HCG weight loss program include:

  • Potential for losing at least one pound per day
  • Resetting the metabolism
  • Boosting the metabolism
  • Satisfied appetite with a low-calorie diet
  • Having a diet that targets unwanted stored fat

Due to the limit of calories a person on this diet will consume, it is crucial to continue to work with us and follow the directions. Patients who do not follow the diet plan can risk other health issues or problems from malnourishment or other causes. Fortunately, our team can keep track of the patient’s health and keep them on track for losing weight while remaining healthy.

Food Restrictions

Contrary to what some people may think, even fruits and certain vegetables in excess can be unhealthy for a diet. In fact, many do not realize that how you prepare and cook the food is also crucial for success. With the HCG diet, patients will have to limit the amount of food and types of food they consume at least for the first couple of months. Limits to one’s dietary plan can include:

  • Only eating broiled or grilled veal, chicken breast, beef, or certain fresh white fish
  • Only eating meat without any visible fat
  • Heavily limiting bread intake
  • Focusing on using vegetables such as spinach, green salad, tomatoes, celery, onions, cucumbers, asparagus and cabbage
  • Eating fruit such as an orange, apple, handful of strawberries, etc.
  • Closely monitoring the number of calories consumed
  • Avoid sugary foods, sugar, butter and oil
  • Drinking coffee, tea and water without much restriction
  • Heavily limiting dairy intake

Part of our program will involve guiding the patient through this process in order to keep the patient on track. There are a few other factors the patient needs to know about this program before beginning.

A Limit of about 500 Calories a Day can be Difficult

Even though this low-calorie count is for the first eight weeks of this diet, it is still very demanding. We can customize the diet for the patient’s health, but the patient needs to follow through on this diet as well. We may recommend certain supplements that help the patient get the necessary vitamins and nutrients each day. Regardless, the patient needs to commit to this diet and work with us for healthy lasting results.

HCG can Decrease Appetite but may Not Eliminate It

While the HCG hormone can help patients to have less of an appetite, it may not completely eliminate one’s appetite. This is where a planned diet from our program is useful. We can map out the meals and times to take the HCG in order to help patients lose a significant amount of weight. We can help patients do so in a healthy way instead of increasing other health risks without professional supervision.

Limit Exercise During this Diet

It is not wise to exercise during this phase of the diet unless we allow certain types of exercise. Since you will be consuming much fewer calories than before, it is crucial to not over-exert oneself. Until the body adjusts, exercise will have to be limited for the first few phases of this program. The patient will be able to begin exercising more after the initial program is complete.
