You may have heard of the HCG diet before but never took the time to research it to find out what it’s about. If you’re looking for ways to lose weight and keep it off, the HCG diet is right for you. If you’re looking for a diet to help you obtain your ideal weight, the HCG will help. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we have an HCG weight loss process in place to help you achieve weight loss and keep the weight off for good.
Step One: Blood Work
Once you’ve scheduled your initial consultation at Ageless Integrated Medicine, we request you get a round of blood work completed. This blood work helps us see your baseline levels and see if there’s any specific cause for your weight gain. Sometimes, the reason for your weight gain could be due to low hormones which can be treated with HRT in addition to the HCG weight loss program. That’s why we require up-to-date blood work before starting the HCG diet. We offer blood work in our Mason office. Also, the front desk will help you find places closer to home that perform blood work.
Step Two: Consultation and InBody Testing
Once you have your blood work completed, you can come to the office for your consultation. First, you’ll receive a body composition analysis with our InBody machine. The InBody machine provides a lot of valuable data about your body composition such as body fat percentage, lean body mass, water weight, BMI, and much more. During your consultation, our doctor will go over your blood work and InBody report in detail and get you started on the HCG hormone.
Step Three: Weight Loss Begins
After your consultation, you begin taking the HCG and follow the diet and exercise plan discussed during the consultation. First, you do the injections and follow the plan for 10 days. After those first 10 days, you either come into the office or get on the phone to discuss how everything is going. The doctor will discuss any issues that you are having and make necessary corrections if needed. Then, the diet continues for another 30 days.
Step Four: Stabilization
Once you’ve reached day 40 overall, you return to the office. We will repeat the InBody body composition analysis and our doctor will compare it to the initial InBody report and discuss your results. Then, Dr. Rao discusses strategies you must follow for the next 21 days to maintain the amount of weight lost.
Step Five: Strategies to Maintain Weight Loss
Once the first round is done, you have a conversation with Dr. Rao regarding a variety of strategies that will help you maintain or better the weight loss you have achieved either forever or until you do the next round.
Step Six: Repeat the Process if Necessary
Depending on how much weight you have to lose, one cycle of HCG weight loss may not be enough. It’s nothing to worry about and is common among many HCG weight loss patients. Should you still need to lose weight, the process will continue until you reach your ideal body weight.
