The Clean Start Weight Loss Program is designed to eliminate the body’s fat deposits, particularly targeting the abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, neck and face. It has also been suggested that hCG plays a role in establishing a new weight “set point” for the body, making it less likely to return to your previous weight.
The hCG weight loss protocol consists of a very low-calorie diet accompanied by injectable treatments of hCG along with weekly visits with a medical weight loss specialist. The average patient experiences rapid weight loss averaging 0.5-2 lbs per day. The first phase is followed by a maintenance phase where you can add in more fruits, veggies and proteins (but no sugar or starches!). Eventually more sugars and starches are slowly added back to the diet. The protocol length can vary based on patient. This can be determined by you and your weight loss medical specialist. In addition to loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of the hCG protocol is its ability to help modify the patient’s relationship with food and eating habits, resulting in long term weight loss.
LONG TERM WEIGHT LOSS SUCCESS WITH SEMAGLUTIDE
Semaglutide (Wegovy®/Ozempic®) is an FDA approved injectable medication that imitates the hormone that affects the parts of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. When paired with a reduced calorie diet and exercise regimen, semaglutide has been proven to be effective as a long-term weight loss medication. Through our specialty pharmacy, we are now able to offer compounded semaglutide with the same great weight loss benefits at a lower cost.
Our medication assisted weight loss program consists of a moderate-calorie diet and moderate exercise plan accompanied by weekly injections of compounded semaglutide along with weekly visits with a medical weight loss specialist. The weight loss results of semaglutide are achieved over a gradual period of time with sustained weight loss results. In studies patients have been shown to lose an average of 15% of their initial body weight compared to only 2.4% loss in those receiving placebo. Calorie intake will be individualized per patient based on their needs and weight loss goals. This medication is safe for almost all individuals and can be maintained over months to years. Sustained weight loss has been proven to help improve chronic medical conditions including high blood pressure, high blood sugar and cardiovascular disease.
