Medical Weight Loss

The practitioners at Delaware Integrative Medicine recognize that when people start a diet, the thing they want most is Results— and fast . Most people don’t want to take 3 months to shed 20lbs, they just want it gone. This is where medical weight loss can offer a solution.


The hCG Diet Program

There are a great many “crash” diets on the market which are not only unhealthy but also, in some cases, may be an unsafe way to lose weight. Any kind of medically un-supervised diet can result in the wrong kind of weight-loss. It is essential to not lose lean muscle or bone mass as a side effect of dieting. This fast-acting diet is medically supervised and doesn’t involve exercise. It targets fat, not muscle and patients at the clinic report they have very little, if any hunger.

The Medically Supervised Accelerated Diet can bring significant weight-loss in 23 days, with an average continual loss of 3/4 to 1 1/4 lb per day. People wanting to lose more weight can repeat the program after a break.

The Medically Supervised Accelerated Diet has proven to be a breakthrough program for many patients, and it may help you.

How the hCG Diet Works

This hCG program is specifically designed and covers the use of prescription hCG for weight loss, the required lab tests, diet protocol, and how to safely and effectively create a long term weight loss program. The hCG Diet is a program formulated with specific amounts of nutrition and ingredients to encourage weight loss.
HCG, which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a glycoprotein composed of 244 amino acids. Only hCG injections have been shown to raise blood levels of hCG, so that is the only acceptable way of taking hCG at this time. Any other way of taking hCG, such as drops, pills, or sprays, are likely dissolved before ever reaching the blood, and they do not raise blood levels; this would be like taking nothing at all. Injections should only be taken with a prescription from a doctor, and under medical supervision.
HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the hCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the hCG hormone.
During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieter regain weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.

However, our Medical Weigh Loss protocol protects muscle from being lost. In fact, there is more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches and size of clothing. The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.
