|Could hCG be your New Year’s resolution for healthy weight loss?|
|Written by Dr. Elizabeth Thybulle|
Unhealthy excess body fat is directly correlated to most chronic diseases in the United States.
Why is that?
Aside from the vanity aspect of successful weight loss, one can also focus on the prevention of most chronic diseases that are caused by obesity. When you lose excess, unhealthy body fat you can reduce your cholesterol, reduce your fasting blood sugar, reduce your blood pressure, reduce joint and back pain and increase energy. When you commit to a healthy lifestyle you can prevent the risk of high blood pressure, Type II diabetes, heart disease and chronic joint pain.
USA.GOV shows four of the top 10 New Year’s resolutions have to do with health. Now is the time of year to start thinking about how you are going to be proactive about your health for 2012. Are you going to talk about the weight that crept up on you the last couple of months in 2011 or are you going to commit to your health, yourself, and make positive long lasting changes? Instead of making New Year’s resolutions that last for six weeks, think about how healthy you will feel at your “goal weight.” It’s a great time of year to focus on a healthy lifestyle and how you can make that happen starting January 1, 2012.
As we gobble, gobble our way from October 31st through Thanksgiving, and then through all of the festivities of December we may lose track of how our indulgence affects our health. It does not have to mean that we can’t zip our skirts or pants on January 2 when we return to work or school. It is actually possible to enjoy a family dinner or holiday party without packing on the pounds. How is that possible? You can eat a light healthy meal of soup or salad before you go to the function so you will not be starving and feel the need to eat everything that is presented to you. It is also possible to eat foods that you know are high in fat or sugar, but stop after only enjoying 3 bites of that food.
Don’t forget that alcoholic beverages, and eggnog, are very high in calories and sugar as well. To decrease the amount of calories you consume start with your favorite beverage, and then have a glass of sparkling water in between each beverage. Not only will you reduce the calories you consume, it will also make you safer behind the wheel if you happen to be driving home.
Unhealthy excess body fat is directly correlated to most chronic diseases in the United States. Using hCG is an excellent method for weight loss since it is safe and effective when done under medical supervision.
The hCG program involves the use of a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It helps to mobilize deep, stored fat while on a very low calorie diet. Most people assume that a very low calorie diet should help you to lose excess fat. But, if your metabolism is not working properly due to years of blood sugar imbalance or other diets, then simple caloric restriction or exercise is usually not successful. Although it’s proven to be a successful weight loss program it is not for everyone. It is a very strict protocol and my not work with many people’s schedules and lifestyles.
When patients follow the Health Moves medically supervised program for weight loss using hCG, they are taught exactly what to eat, what supplements are supportive during the program and when and how to inject the hormone. Blood tests check overall health, and an ultrasound body composition tests what their percent of fat is.
Once someone has completed the hCG program they are guided through the next phase of the protocol with a specific diet to assure that they stabilize at their new weight. The length of the program can vary from 21 – 40 days using the hCG hormone. After the patient has maintained their new weight for a few weeks, it is possible for them to go through the program again if they are still working towards their goal weight. Once the desired goal weight is met the patient is re-evaluated and results are compared to their initial results to assure that their metabolism is working properly.
