Weight Loss Program Fit for YOU
Weight Management is one area where the “one size fits all” approach is doomed for failure. At My Concierge MD, our focus is on the individual, treating the whole person from the inside out (mind, body and spirit), and making sure that your weight loss program does the same. Our Beverly Hills medical practice will provide you with all the tools you need to lose weight fast.
Using our valuable expertise and state-of-the-art technologies, we work with each patient to provide a custom weight loss program (including weight loss maintenance) that is safe and effective. Our goal is to provide a solution that brings healthy results, and results that are sustainable. This treatment includes lifestyle, nutrition (on- staff nutritionist) and medical intervention, based on each patient’s specific needs.
Weight Loss Program
Our weight loss program begins with a personal consultation with our private doctor and weight loss nutritionist. The team will assess a number of diagnostic tests, which includes a physical exam and history, metabolic testing, hormonal balance, body composition and review of food allergy testing. This analysis will help our concierge doctor understand your risk factors, learn
about your life’s continuing weight loss issues, then design a personalized weight loss plan to safely and effectively remove these barriers and help you sustain long-term weight loss.
Weight Loss Programs – Diets
Low Calorie and Very Low Calorie Diets
Low calorie diets (LCD), and very low calorie diets (VLCD), are valuable weight loss programs that assist patients in losing substantial amounts of weight safely and efficiently. Under the concierge physical’s medical supervision, patients can lose from 2-7 pounds weekly. Low calorie diets may also consist of full or partial meal replacement using medical weight management formulas including OPTIFAST, MEDIFAST or PROTI which helps you lose fat while conserving your muscle mass and staving off cravings.
Reduced Calorie Diet
A Reduced Calorie Diet is a weight loss program where a patent will consume a controlled number of daily calories with normal food intake or with a combination of normal food or partial meal replacement products.
The hCG hormone suppresses hunger and triggers the body’s utilization of fat for fuel. The hCG plan restricts the diet to 500 calories per day consisting of mostly organic, unprocessed foods along with hCG injections or drops placed under the tongue. The patient follows the plan for 45 days continuously, and will typically lose several pounds per day.
The majority of men and women can use hCG injections for weight loss (our concierge physicians will consult individual patients on recommendation for specific use and hCG protocol). hCG weight loss injections are not prescribed for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Glycemic Control Program
This diet is commonly referred to as a Low-carb diet and focuses on decreasing carbohydrate results in lower insulin levels. This makes the body burn stored fat for energy, which leads to weight reduction and health risk reduction for a number of health conditions.
The diet causes the body to burn stored fat for energy and ultimately helps you shed excess weight and reduce risk factors for a variety of health conditions. The diet focuses on proteins, including meat, fish, poultry, and eggs, and some vegetables (non-starch). It will also generally exclude or limits most grains, breads, fruits, pastas, sweets and starchy vegetables.
Fitness Assessment & Exercise Plan
This assessment includes a comprehensive look at fitness protocols, including body fat and weight measurement (body composition) and Vo2 testing. After assessing the patient’s overall fitness level, the concierge doctor will design an exercise program that will most effectively reduce body fat and create healthy, lean body mass
Nutrition and Diet
While our concierge doctors take a comprehensive and scientific assessment of the caloric intake of our patients, the nutritional density and value of foods eaten by our patients is most important for devising a sustainable and effective diet plan. Our nutritionist, in conjunction with the concierge physician, assist patients in making healthy choice decisions that are appropriate for their individual health status, lifestyle and food likes or dislikes. The goal here is to encourage healthy eating and making your diet work for you, not the other way around, where the patient feels constantly starved or deprived. We will devise a healthy diet plan as part of your weight loss program that fits your lifestyle and is most easily integrated in to your everyday life.
What are Lipotropic Injections?
Lipotropic nutrients play a critical role in how the body uses fat, either accelerating the removal or decreasing amounts of fat in the liver. The injections are used to help dissolve fat in areas of the body that may be less responsive to exercise, including the stomach, buttocks or inner thighs. Vitamins B6 and B12 can also be used in the injections.
