What is medical weight loss?
Let the providers at RejuvaLife help you with diet and weight loss with our Medical Weight Loss Program. You’re about to embark on a weight loss journey that is unlike any other. Our program is designed to reward mindful eating with weight loss in a short period of time. The key to long-term success, in the end, is adopting healthy eating habits, which will replace other habits. This allows for continued success long after the diet program is over. Be prepared to completely start fresh and look at your daily eating patterns in an entirely new way!
Our hCG program is the ultimate weight loss program that alters how your body loses weight.
What you can expect from the program
- Using the “pro-hormone” hCG to increase other hormones to maintain its own natural muscle, the body’s metabolism is naturally stimulated to burn fat at an impressive rate.
- Weekly lipotropic injections are then used to boost energy and increase the fat burning process.
- We offer an all-inclusive package to ensure your success.
- The true benefit of hCG is believed to be its ability to help modify your relationship with food and instill lifelong healthy eating habits, which can result in long-term weight loss.
- The incorporation of our IR sauna further promotes weight loss and detoxification.
What is the hCG diet?
The hCG diet is a safe and effective way to drastically lose weight by affecting the hypothalamus (which controls your hunger) in a positive way, while also restricting your calorie intake. hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a group of amino acids that work to decrease appetite and speed up the metabolism. This diet can be done by taking either daily pellets or injections, and is done in conjunction with a very strict diet. Weight loss results are commonly seen in the midsection. But if you are looking to lose weight in general, this program is an excellent option.
Is it safe?
Yes, hCG has been around since the 1950s and was created by an endocrinologist, Dr. Albert Simeons. Dr. Simeons’ work found that by affecting the hypothalamus in a positive way, patients were losing weight at an extreme pace. Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. hCG affects how your body loses weight, while the diet helps with the actual weight loss.
Although hCG medication hasn’t been approved to treat weight loss, it has been studied by many weight loss professionals with excellent results.
How much weight can I lose?
Every client is different and results will vary. But with a three week (21 day) program, a client using this diet may see weight loss of up to 15-18 pounds total. During a 42 day diet, maximum weight loss can be above 25 pounds. It is common to see people lose between ½ and 1 pound per day when using hCG and strictly following the diet.
What hCG options are available?
RejuvaLife offers hCG injections or pellets that are dissolved under the tongue. The pellets contain B12 for energy and vitality. hCG injections have the option of adding B12 to their regimen. Our plans are for 21 or 42 days of injections/pellets. Injections are done daily at home by you. A complete physical history and exam will be taken before any therapy is started. Blood work is also included, if you have not had labs done in the past year.
What can I eat?
During your initial consultation, Colleen Lawton, our board certified nutrition and wellness consultant will discuss your thorough, personalized eating plan. For the most part, you can plan to eat two smaller than normal meals per day. But each diet will be catered specifically to your unique body. Each diet typically contains a meat-based protein, selected vegetables, fruit and a small portion of healthy grains. hCG diets are possible for vegetarians and those who are gluten free. The diet is not recommended to vegans.
