HCG is the abbreviation for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. This is a naturally occurring pregnancy hormone produced by cells in the placenta. When added to an exercise program and a balanced, low-calorie diet, HCG serves as an effective weight loss aid.
The HCG diet at Foyé MD in Houston is a serious undertaking. We offer prescription only injections that are administered by our Houston physicians after a comprehensive patient consultation. Although there is much research to support the benefits of the GCG diet, it is not yet FDA approved.
The positive effects of HCG include:
Cornerstone Wellness weight loss treatments offer a more integrated and comprehensive approach for weight loss. We often recommend the Cornerstone program for patients with metabolic syndrome who are not candidates for the HCG diet. The Cornerstone program consists of a customized meal plan and workout plan to help increase muscle mass while you lose fat, ensuring long-term results.
The evidence-based, nutritionally sound weight management program utilizes advanced tools and technologies proven to:
Only available through a physician, Cornerstone Wellness is a sensible approach that is proven to maximize fat loss while preserving muscle, patients on the program:
Patients follow a physician-supervised, moderately-restricted calorie plan with wholesome and healthy foods you can buy in a grocery store, combined with high-protein meal replacement shakes. Also included in the program are supplements formulated specifically to reduce hunger cravings, stabilize blood sugar levels, and stimulate fat loss.
Prescription Medications can help treat and manage weight loss in a variety of ways. Certain Medications, for example, can make you feel full sooner, or less hungry throughout the day. Other types of Medications can reduce the amount of fat your body can absorb from the foods you eat.
Foyé MD Wellness Clinic offers lipotropic injections in Houston to aid in weight loss. The body requires specific nutrients to stimulate the right hormones to function properly, so it can release stubborn fat stores. Lipotropic B-12 injections are a cocktail of essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. All these components are necessary for whole body health and wellness, and for healthy liver function, which is the key to fat loss.
Our nutrition consultants will take the time to get to know you and your weight loss goals before creating a customized nutrition plan for you. We’ll discuss your current diet and lifestyle choices and work with you to create an actionable plan for you to reach your goals. If you have any pre-existing conditions that may be addressed through a nutritional plan, such as heart disease or diabetes, we may suggest a detailed nutritional plan that will help manage your health care concerns.
We understand that your weight problem is not an isolated issue. Rather, it is the result of a multidimensional overall health condition. Patients who participate in Foyé MD weight management programs receive all the tools they need for improved health and fat loss, including non-invasive fat removal from stubborn areas with SculpSure.
For patients who have been wrestling with their weight for years and have been unsuccessful at making healthy lifestyle changes, Foyé MD offers pharmacotherapy options. Irrefutable evidence has been shown to support the notion that obesity eventually damages the brain function that controls weight. The result is a system gone haywire with weakened signals from the stomach, intestines and fat cells going up to the brain, relaying the wrong message — store more fat. Medications can be a useful tool that mimics brain signals that allow for appetite reduction and fewer cravings. This type of treatment can also help promote a feeling of fullness and boost resting metabolic rate.
Since these changes in the body’s weight regulatory system affect the likelihood of developing high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, stroke, cancer and sleep apnea, the sooner you seek treatment the better. Scientific studies have determined that lowering body fat can reduce the risk of cancer and the recurrence of the disease.
Since every person is unique, there is so way to know exactly how much weight a patient will lose. Most people can expect to achieve a 5–15 percent loss of body weight. Health improvements have been seen with as little as a 5% reduction.
