WHAT IS MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS?
WHAT ARE HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY AND BHRT?
As men and women age, their hormone production starts to decline. This decrease in hormones can cause imbalances and negative side effects, which may contribute to weight gain.
At AMI, we use both hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to address the unique needs of individuals. Safe and effective, both HRT and BHRT can work well for some patients. These weight loss programs can reduce, slow, and prevent weight gain or negative side effects. BHRT is a natural hormonal therapy that uses plant-derived hormones identical in chemical and molecular structure to ones produced by the human body.
Both HRT and BHRT should always be administered by a physician who is skilled in hormone replacement therapy. If you would like to learn more, please schedule a consultation with one of our skilled weight loss specialists.
WHAT IS HCG WEIGHT LOSS?
hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that naturally occurs in both men and women. Using hCG as a weight loss aid (along with restricted caloric intake) dates back to the 1950s. Discovered by Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons, he figured out how to use the hCG hormone to target the nutrients in fat cells and convert their content. This process causes the fat cells to shrink to a smaller size. To help patients kick-start their weight loss habits, we offer hCG diet plans.
Typically, hCG treatments require about 4 – 8 weeks. Participants follow a strict diet that contains almost no fat and reduce calories to 800 a day. This amount of calories may seem very small, but the natural hormone is so powerful that it dramatically reduces the appetite. Most participants adjust quickly to the new calorie restriction and learn to focus on proper foods for a healthy diet. Often, many patients can lose a pound a day without any feelings of weakness or hunger! During your treatment, you will need to self-administer an intramuscular injection of hCG or use pellets that dissolve under the tongue each day.
After completing your hCG weight loss program, you can transition to a healthy lifestyle with proper eating habits and exercise. Because the dramatic weight loss results happen quickly, participants tend to feel motivated and determined to continue their weight loss journey and new healthy lifestyle choices. To help you stay on track, we encourage you to learn more about our lifestyle coaches, stress reduction treatments, nutrition programs, and fitness plans.
HOW CAN I LOSE WEIGHT WITH FITNESS AND NUTRITION COUNSELING?
We’re all different and from a nutritional standpoint. This noticeable difference is called biochemical individuality. Biochemical individuality means that no single exercise or diet plan is right for everyone. For example, one person may do well with a higher carbohydrate diet while others may thrive on Zone-type meals, which incorporate more protein and fat. Additionally, it may work best for some patients to kick-start their weight loss program with a raw food diet. This can leave them more energized and clear-headed.
At AMI, our goal isn’t to impose a belief system or have you follow a particular diet or exercise plan; instead, we strive to teach you the basics of healthy nutrition and provide a personalized exercise program. When combined, it can help you make the right choices each day and help with weight loss. To help determine what type of foods and exercises may work best for you, AMI uses highly trained specialists that focus on the science of exercise and nutrition. Our professionals help identify which foods work best for your unique metabolism and design exercise programs to tone the body. After figuring out your specific metabolic needs, we can apply the basic principles of good nutrition and exercise. A personalized weight loss plan will help you maintain proper weight, feel energized, and improve your overall health and quality of life!
