Our HCG Diet or medical weight loss diet in Gilbert represents a combination of calorie restrictions and daily injections of chorionic gonadotropin (HCG).
HCG is a hormone that was first used in weight loss back in the 1950s. It was established that this type of regimen helps burn up stored fat in the stomach, hips, and thighs. Unlike other diet plans that generally involve the loss of fat and muscle mass, the HCG diet doesn't cause muscle loss.
This diet plan doesn't only include HCG injections. Aside from this, the patient is also required to stick to a low-calorie diet where he/she eats approximately 500 calories per day over a certain period of time. HCG diet is usually done in three stages:
Depending on your weight loss goals, your HCG journey can be quite different from other patients. To determine the precise medical weight loss diet plan, achieve optimum weight loss and avoid any adverse effects, you will be working closely with our professional staff.
Phentermine is another medical weight loss program that combines specific doctor-approved exercises, behavioral changes, a low-calorie diet, and the use of a medication called Phentermine.
This type of weight loss plan is generally prescribed for overweight people who struggle with obesity and obesity-related medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.
Depending on the weight loss goal, this medication can be taken once a day (before breakfast) or 1-2 hours after breakfast. Our provider will provide specific instructions on when and how to take it. Dosage and length of treatment will be based not only on your desired weight loss but also on your medical conditions and response to the treatment.
Weight loss in patients has resulted in a significant decrease in waist circumference, improved blood sugar level, control, and better cholesterol levels.
Semaglutide is a prescription medication for long-term weight management. It is an FDA-approved once-weekly injection that helps with weight loss when used in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which sends a signal to the brain saying "I'm Full". It does this by slowing the digestive process and gastric emptying, which promotes satiety. In other words, it helps you feel full earlier (consuming less food) and stay full longer. In conjunction, blood sugar levels become more regulated (Glycemic control), and insulin sensitivity also improves, helping to reduce cravings while promoting fat loss.
Several studies have shown significant weight loss for patients on Semaglutide. The largest clinical trial showed an average weight loss of 35lb (a 14.9% reduction from initial body weight) for people who used Semaglutide. This was five times greater weight loss than those who completed diet and exercise alone.
This, in correlation with a custom diet plan from Keystone Medical Wellness that is based on your resting metabolic rate, will provide you the results you the long-term results you are seeking. Not to mention, it can assist in creating a healthier relationship with food choices and overall lifestyle.
