Hillcrest Medical Weight Loss Program
While every person is different, and their reaction to the program will vary slightly, we have narrowed our program to four essential parts: Meal Plan, Supplement and Prescription Phentermine, Body Composition Analysis and Genetic testing, and Support. Let’s expand on these integral facets to the program.
Metabolic Meal Plan
The meal plan focuses on low glycemic and anti-inflammatory foods. Our main goal with nutrition and meals is the right combination of food, the preparation of foods, as well as the timing. We want you to have healthy servings of protein, fruits, and vegetables. Consuming water each day is also critical. We don’t want you to starve yourself to a healthy weight, that will only hurt you. As you move along the program, you will start adding back foods that you stopped consuming in the beginning. This will be later in the program, once you’ve reached your goal weight and are more aware of how different food affect you.
Supplement and Prescription Phentermine
Phentermine is an appetite suppressant that has shown phenomenal success when using in conjunction with a low-calorie diet. Medical studies have shown that the effects of phentermine show drastic weight loss in the first few months and the effects continue for months after you stop taking it.
Lipo Injections and B12 contain high doses of fat-blasting compounds Methionine, Inositol, and Choline. These injections will increase your energy almost immediately, and increased energy helps to work off the abnormal fat stored in your body.
Juice Plus and Multivitamin/mineral will help to restore the necessary vitamins that changing your diet may cause you to lose. Even if you are eating “right”, these right foods are sometimes devoid of the nutrition that allows our body to function normally. We use a whole food supplement that is highly bioavailable to help you achieve the nutrition your body needs with your new diet.
Body Composition Analysis and Genetic Testing
Understanding how your genetics play into your health is a vital part of determining what will work best for you when determining nutrition and exercise.
A well-known clinical study was performed by one of America’s top universities, Stanford University. The purpose of the study was to determine if Genetic testing was effective to assist in helping people to lose weight. When compared to other well-established and effective weight loss programs, those people that were on a meal plan that was specific to THEIR Genetic profile lost 2.5X more weight than those that were not on an individualized plan. The science clearly speaks for itself, and it’s why we, at Hillcrest Medical Weight Loss, utilize Genetic testing to identify the best plan for you after the initial phases of the program have been completed. The test is completely painless and non-invasive, and an imperative part of your focused lifestyle change!
Support from family and friends will always help to keep you on the path towards your goal. Lack of support is one of the primary reasons that people fail to lose weight and maintain that weight loss. Hillcrest Medical Weight Loss will provide appropriate clinical support as well as moral support to help you stay on track and take charge of your health! We are always here for any questions and we will cheer you on throughout your path to weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.
