Customized hCG Weight Loss Program
Dr. David P. Suarez will discuss the recommended diet during the hCG Weight Loss Program. Proper nutrition is essential during this program, as the limited caloric intake may inhibit your ability to consume the necessary vitamins and minerals if not handled properly. Supplementation through daily vitamins or other means may be necessary to make sure you are properly nourished throughout the program. This is where nutritional counseling and a better understanding of balanced diets can help you not only as you look to shed pounds, but keep the weight off after you reach your target weight.
Diet & Caloric Intake
Calories are obviously important to give us the fuel we need every day, but when calories are consumed in excess of the number of calories we burn for energy, you may find yourself putting on weight. Some people burn calories faster or more efficiently than others, which may make maintaining a healthy weight easier for those individuals. Those who struggle to control their weight may find it helpful to lower caloric intake during the course of the hCG Weight Loss Program and while under doctor supervision to lose weight. Caloric intake may increase after the program, but patients will learn to eat better with a balanced, healthy diet through nutritional counseling.
Caloric intake is limited to around 500 calories a day during this program, so consultation with Dr. David P. Suarez will help you determine if this method of weight loss is right for you. In addition to the hCG Weight Loss Program, you may also be encouraged to modify your behavior regarding food and exercise, and learning proper nutrition can not only help you ensure you receive necessary nutrients during this program, but can be used after the completion of the program to maintain weight loss.
The hCG Weight Loss Program also involves injections of hCG, which are intended to aid in the burning of fat in conjunction with the low calorie diet. This is a hormone that may be used to improve fertility in women, and may even be used to help men who have low testosterone replenish their levels.
The goal of these injections is to allow the body to burn the stores of fat for energy, which helps the patient get rid of this unwanted fat. hCG injections have not received FDA approval for weight loss, but patients should discuss their effectiveness with Dr. David P. Suarez at Fountain of Youth Rx .
