It seems everywhere you look, fast food, restaurants, and delivery services are readily available. It’s no secret that eating is so enjoyable. When you eat, your brain releases the pleasure chemicals that can make weight gain and obesity so common.
Dieting is one of the most common ways to lose weight, but it's often easier said than done — 45 million people go on diets every year, with most unsuccessful.
If traditional diets haven’t worked for you, it may be time for a custom approach. Selah Medi Spa in Katy, Texas, assists patients with medically supervised weight-loss plans so they can shed weight fast and keep it off.
The dangers of being overweight
Most people within a healthy level of fat have a body mass index (BMI) of 18.5-24.9. But as we get older, it can be harder to stay in this healthy range.
If you have an excess amount of fat, you may be considered overweight with a (BMI) of 25-29.9. People who take in more calories than they burn may become obese — when you have a BMI of 30 or over.
Being overweight or obese not only affects your self-image, but it comes with many health risks. Some health risks include:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- Gallbladder disease
Being overweight or obese could even take your life. The two are the second leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States, leading to over 300,000 deaths per year.
The most efficient weight-loss method
Approximately 49% of patients try to lose weight every year. Most do not succeed. Medically supervised weight loss isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. We tailor your weight-loss plan to accommodate your body and lifestyle.
Your medically supervised weight-loss plan may include:
- Meal plans
- Diet guidance and counseling
- Daily food journaling
- hCG supplements
- B12 injections
Most people who try to lose weight have little success because an important key is missing — accountability. Medically supervised weight loss puts accountability front and center. This is done by weekly weigh-ins and full body measurements.
During this time, we address any areas of your custom weight-loss plan that aren't working and pinpoint the methods that are showing results. When you start seeing your progress, you’ll be motivated to stick to your diet and keep losing weight.
Optimize your results
Hormones, your body’s chemical messengers, help regulate many important functions. Hormones are one factor that can lead to being overweight or obese. Our weight-loss specialists may suggest incorporating human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) supplements into your custom plan to give you the best results.
hCG is a naturally occurring hormone that both men and women have in their bodies. It is known as the “pregnancy hormone” because a woman's body produces more of it in the early stages of pregnancy. hCG is safe and effective in aiding both men and women in weight loss.
hCG works by:
- Curbing your hunger
- Boosting your metabolism
- Encouraging your body to continually burn calories
We offer pharmaceutical-grade hCG supplements to our patients to help optimize their weight-loss efforts.
