Before one decides to go on the HCG diet it is first essential to consult with a physician to give you proper guidance and one-on-one support throughout the diet.
We have the technology and the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadatropin to help reset the body to a more balanced state of being. The HCG diet has provided many with the opportunity for the chance to feel good again.
As children grow and develop their habits of eating and exercising, they are essentially laying a blueprint for their lifestyle. From the CDC 17% of all children and teen-agers in the US experience obesity, and of those, 70%-80% are more likely to become overweight or obese as adults. It is an alarming study that about 12.5 million children and teenagers as well as over 78 Million adults were obese in the United States alone during the years of 2009-2010.
The HCG injections have become a very controversial topic among those seeking answers to losing stubborn weight and keeping it off. There are many men and women who have had extraordinary results dropping the unwanted pounds of fat.
Many people swear by the diet and feel so grateful. Some men have lost up to 40 lbs. of fat in 40 days on this special diet. The HCG Diet is not just some diet to try on your own. It needs to be medically supervised, especially if you have hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes mellitus, and are taking medication for those medical conditions. Those who have had success love this diet because it helps target the accumulated fatty areas while supporting lean muscle mass. Many of our patients have been able to reduce or eliminate their medications after losing weight on our safe and effective weight loss plans.
If you need to lose just a few stubborn pounds or change your lifestyle to ensure more vibrant health and add zest to your life the HCG diet has helped many people do just that. The HCG diet is one that must be entered into with your doctors’ expertise and guidance. Once on the diet it is important to be closely evaluated until a period of time after the diet has finished. This ensures proper maintenance of weight and a complete satisfaction of health.
Dr. Bart K. Gershenbaum the founder and owner of MedX Medical Center had his own personal struggles with weight before finding a successful way to lose weight with the HCG Diet. In 2009, after having to have quadruple bypass surgery in 2008, he had to do what ever it took to lose weight, lower his blood pressure and cholesterol, have a safe and effective exercise program, and begin to take care of himself the same way he would recommend to his patients that they needed to take care of themselves.
Through the course of his treatment with HCG, he lost over 30 pounds. While it is no secret that weight gain is one of the issues that plagues men and women as they age and approach peri-menopause, menopause, and andropause, which is male menopause, losing weight can be one of the most challenging situations people face. Even the most educated and successful individuals are often hung up by this one thing that they can’t seem to get under control, which is weight gain. The HCG Diet is a wonderful program because it is a roadmap to regaining optimum health and losing weight safely and effectively.
According to Dr.Gershenbaum,the HCG Diet is about more than just weight loss. Many patients, including himself who completed the program have also experienced other health benefits, including lowered cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar. Studies have shown that maintaining healthy levels in the four areas of blood pressure, bad cholesterol, central obesity (belly fat), and blood sugar (insulin resistance) increases life expectancy, while decreasing the incidence of heart disease and stroke.
The landmark work of the late Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, as outlined in his manuscript Pounds and Inches, discusses his more than 30 years of observation in his medical practice showing that the use of low dose HCG in a metabolic protocol results in weight loss and a reduction in fat, especially in the abdominal area. MedX Medical Center incorporates an updated Dr. Simeon protocol, along with the use of injectable HCG.
Virtually every calorie-restricted program has been shown to burn approximately 30-40% muscle and only 20-30% fat. When a person loses muscle, the body assumes you are in a starvation mode and wants to put the weight back on. On the MedX Medical Center diet, the large amount of fat loss and small amount of muscle loss explains why, when patients reach their goal weight, they can maintain it.
After testing more than 1,000 patients who have lost between 30 and 120 pounds, a large percentage of our patients have learned to keep their weight off, learned to eat right, and are now on a much healthier course to prevent the inevitable increased cardiovascular risks of obesity.
This professionally supervised medical weight loss protocol has worked for Dr. Gershenbaum and the patients at MedX Medical Center.
