Your weight affects every aspect of your life. Being overweight can lead to joint and muscle pain, cause hypertension, hypoglycemia, heart disease, strokes, and much more. At Simply Slim Medical in Bethesda, MD, we believe medical weight loss can help anyone get their life back on track. Today, we discuss what this revolutionary treatment does and what you can expect from this program.
What Medical Weight Loss Does
Medical weight loss is a bit of an enigma. Somehow, it manages to radically change your life while implementing small steps you can follow through with after the program has ended. It teaches you how to eat healthily and helps you overcome cravings for unhealthy foods full of unnatural and harmful ingredients. It teaches you how to eat intuitively so you can maintain your weight without added stress.
Medical weight loss teaches you how to exercise based on your unique needs in order to make weight loss easier and weight maintenance sustainable. You will get out of your program what you want to get out of it. You have the power to do anything you set your mind to. If you set your mind to weight loss, you will learn and implement the tools necessary for success in a medical weight loss program.
What to Expect From Your Medical Weight Loss Program
Vitamin B & Lipotropic Injections
At Simply Slim Medical we are excited to offer vitamin B and lipotropic injections to help kick-start your weight loss. This is an important part of any medical weight loss program, regardless of where you are in your weight loss journey. These injections feature cyanocobalamin, known colloquially as vitamin B12, for natural energy to power through your workouts and workday.
They also feature adenosine & l-carnitine to rev up your metabolism, even when your body is at rest. Finally, these injections feature choline, inositol and methionine to mobilize fat. Whether you’ve hit a weight loss plateau in the second week or the twentieth week of your weight loss journey, you will be back on track after just one of these powerful injections.
Phentermine is arguably the most valuable help you could receive during a medical weight loss program. It is ideal for anyone who is struggling to lose weight, struggles to feel full, has an irresistible craving for quick carbs, including sweets, and feels lethargic.
Phentermine increases the level of norepinephrine in your body, which helps your body process and reduce fat. It regulates the hunger signals you receive from your brain, which helps you to feel satiated. Phentermine helps you feel full faster and keeps you satiated for longer than you may normally be. Finally, it takes your metabolism to the next level and increases your energy so you can complete workouts, errands, and day-to-day activities without feeling burned-out.
Personalized Diet Plan
No healthy lifestyle is the same as another. Some people exercise for seven hours a week and need more calories than others who only exercise 2.5 hours a week. Some people work blue-collar jobs for 10 to 12 hours a day and have extreme nutritional needs, even on their weight loss journey.
Just as activity levels and nutritional needs vary, two people can have two completely different diets and they both may be healthy. For instance, some people only feel full when they eat a diet that is high in healthy fats and bioavailable protein. Other people need a ton of soluble fiber to feel full. Regardless of your dietary restrictions and needs, we will create a meal plan that works for you.
HCG Diet: A Unique One-Size-Fits-All Approach
There are few successful one-size-fits-all approaches in life. The HCG diet is one of the rare ones. This diet involves HCG supplements that allow you to maintain a very low-calorie diet (VLCD) successfully, reset your metabolism and eating habits, and burn fat for fuel rather than burning muscle. This incredible diet results in the loss of one to two pounds per day without causing you to feel hungry.
Phase I of the HCG Diet
The first phase of the HCG diet is known as the loading phase. During this phase of the diet, you will start receiving oral HCG supplements or injections. This phase lasts a mere 48 hours and also asks you to eat high-fat, calorie-dense foods while doing your best to avoid carbohydrate consumption.
Phase II of the HCG Diet
The second phase of the HCG diet is known as the weight loss phase and lasts for three to six weeks depending on your weight loss goals. Most clients who follow this diet choose to eat a mere 500 calories per day.
However, the daily calorie count of your diet can be anything that allows you to lose weight. Keep in mind that while 500 daily calories sounds impossibly low, you won’t feel hungry due to the HCG supplements.
Phase III of the HCG Diet
The third and “final” phase of the HCG diet is marked by the cessation of HCG supplementation. Over the course of three weeks, you will slowly increase your daily calorie count. This teaches you how to eat reasonable portions of healthy foods. However, you must continue eating a minimum amount of carbs.
