Find out how our Houston physician can help you finally shed those pounds.

Losing weight isn’t always as easy as eating healthy and exercising regularly. In some cases, you may not be seeing the results you want despite leading a healthier lifestyle. While this shouldn’t mean that you should chuck your healthier attitude and habits right out the window, it does mean that it might be time to turn to our Houston, TX, physician Dr. Babak Rejaie to find out if the HCG Program could help you get the results you want.

What is the HCG Program?

This weight loss program is based off the belief that the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) hormone, a hormone naturally occurring within pregnant women, could help get rid of stored fat and restart your metabolism. In some cases, HCG may even help stave off hunger and cravings that many people who are dieting experience.

What is involved in the HCG Program?

Here at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, we offer HCG Programs that are for 23 days and 46 days. With this program, we are also working with Perfect Fit Meals to provide you with tailor-made meals that adhere to the program’s dietary restrictions.

Everything about your weight loss journey is led by our physician, so not only will you be in safe hands the whole time but there will be some accountability to sticking with your new diet routine. Plus, we will be educating you about which foods are healthy and which foods aren’t, providing you with the knowledge you need to maintain healthy eating habits for the future (something many diet programs don’t offer).

Before undergoing an HCG program we will need to make sure that you are healthy enough for a low-calorie diet. We will go through your detailed medical history, conduct a thorough physical exam and run blood tests.

There are several phases within the HCG program. At the very beginning, you will follow a very low-calorie diet, which includes about 500 calories a day. Over time, you will move into another phase of the diet, the stabilization phase, in which your daily caloric intake may increase anywhere from 800 to 1600 calories a day. The stabilization phase usually occurs after your weight loss and will be less restrictive, allowing you to incorporate more healthy food options into your diet. Patients reported losing about 0.5 to 1 pound a day in the beginning phase of the HCG diet.

Along with this restricted diet, you will also be getting HCG drops or HCG injections, which will help to target and reduce fat while sustaining the muscle.

If you are interested in what the HCG program might be able to do for you then call the medical experts at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, TX. We would be happy to sit down with you and determine whether you are an ideal candidate for this weight loss program.

Physician Supervised Weight Loss ProgramMany American adults struggle to lose weight. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 90 million American adults struggle with obesity and the resulting health issues, which typically range from cardiovascular disease and stroke, to diabetes and an increased risk of certain types of cancer. Factoring in adults that are overweight (not obese), the CDC estimates that approximately 70% of American adults are over their ideal weight. Trendy diets and fads may be tempting and promise quick results, but a personalized plan designed by a doctor and health care professionals is the approach most likely to deliver lasting results. Dr. Babak Rejaie, the physician at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, TX, designs tailored weight loss plans on a case by case basis to help patients achieve their long-term weight loss goals.

The Benefits of Choosing a Physician Assisted Weight Loss Center in Houston, TX

Even losing and keeping off 10 to 20 pounds can be a challenge, especially for busy adults with family and professional obligations that can make it difficult to stay disciplined and focused.

Weight loss center programs are designed to help you find the method that will work for you.

A supervised and custom weight loss plan can also help you save time and one of the most common pitfalls of the weight loss process - choosing meal plans, supplements, and a course of exercise that will not be effective or even hinder your results.

Weight LossThere are many methods for losing weight, including dietary plans, exercise routines, weight loss medications, and supplements. It can be difficult to sift through all the information on weight loss to find the best method for you. Fortunately, you do not have to figure it out on your own. At Memorial Weight Loss Clinic, your Houston, TX, weight loss center, Dr. Babak Rejaie will evaluate your situation and develop an individualized weight loss plan for you.

What is Medical Weight Loss?

Medical weight loss involves the development of an individualized weight loss plan that is implemented under the supervision of a doctor or healthcare provider. Medical weight loss plans might utilize a variety of prescription weight loss aids, such as hormone therapies, weight loss medications, or vitamin supplements.

How Does Phentermine Aid in Weight Loss?

Phentermine is an FDA approved prescription weight loss medication that works by suppressing the appetite and helping you feel full longer. When combined with an individualized diet and exercise plan, Phentermine helps accelerate weight loss for quicker results than is typically obtained through diet and exercise alone. Phentermine is one of the most common weight loss medications prescribed by doctors.

What is the HCG Weight Loss Program?

The HCG weight loss program utilizes hormone therapy to aid in weight loss. An individualized diet plan will be developed for you in Houston that includes HCG hormone supplements. The HCG hormone in the supplements aids in weight loss by reducing feelings of hunger, as well as hunger-related fatigue. The HCG hormone also causes the body to release a certain type of fat known as abnormal fat so that you lose weight safely and effectively.

There are many options and strategies for losing weight, but it can be difficult to find the right approach and achieve lasting results without the aid of a doctor specializing in weight loss. For assistance developing an individualized medical weight loss plan, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rejaie by calling Memorial Weight Loss Clinic, your Houston, TX, weight loss center, at (888) 262-7957.

Are you looking to lose weight with your Houston, TX, doctor?hcg program

Dr. Babak Rejaie uses HCG, Human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced by placenta after implantation, to help people lose weight.

The program was proposed by Dr. ATW Simeons based on the idea that HCG hormone releases fats that can help deliver nutrition and induce a low caloric intake. For more information, click here.

What are the dangers of being obese?

Weight loss can reduce and/or eliminate several illnesses. Obesity and being overweight are associated with several diseases:

  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Different types of cancer
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Strokes
  • Sleep apnea

What should you do before enrolling in a weight loss program?

Your Houston doctor wants to help you, but before enrolling in the HCG program, you should contact a medical professional to see if it's advisable to seek this type of treatment.

What kinds of fats are there?

There are three types of fats:

  • Structural Fat: It has several functions, including:
    1. Bedding kidneys in tissue
    2. Protecting coronary arteries
    3. Keeping the skin tight and smooth
    4. Providing fat on the bottom of feet to aid in walking.
  • Normal Fat: The body reserves nutrients as normal fat and the body uses it when it needs fuel or energy. This fat is in several places around the body and has a high caloric value. You're not considered obese if you have too much of this fat.
     
  • Abnormal Fat: This fat is not available as a nutritional emergency for the body. This fat is lost last when someone is dieting. Normal fat reserves are first exhausted, then structural fat. Abnormal fat is shed last, which is why losing weight is difficult.

If you have any questions about the HCG program, you should call your Houston, TX, physician, Dr. Rejaie. You can reach him at his office by calling (713) 468-3322.

Find out how this hormone combined with a specialized diet could finally help you lose weight.hcg program

When it comes to choosing a weight loss plan that works for you we know it can be tricky. After all, there is a lot of misinformation out there. Perhaps you’ve heard about the HCG program and maybe you’re just starting to learn about it. Our Houston, TX, physician Dr. Babak Rejaie is here to tell you what you can expect from the HCG program.

HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. So, how exactly does this hormone facilitate weight loss? This program also supports a low-calorie diet (less than 800 calories a day) that causes the HCG supplement to kick-start your metabolism to help you shed pounds quickly without feeling like you are starving all the time.

With a lot of weight loss programs and diet fads people may find themselves feeling hungry all the time, which often leads many to give up on these programs. The HCG helps stave off that hunger and support the body so that it can still thrive off a low-calorie diet. Here at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic our Houston, TX doctor offers HCG programs that last either 26 days or 43 days, depending on your specific goals.

Of course, what many people find to be the most difficult part of losing weight is figuring out how they should eat. People lead busy lives and it can be challenging and downright disheartening to think you are eating healthy just to find out that what you are eating is actually making things worse. This is where having a weight loss team on your side can truly help. Not only can we provide support and answer all of your nutritional questions but we also work with Perfect Fit Meals to provide you with a meal plan that coincides with what our HCG program offers.

In order to make sure that this program is right for you we will need you to undergo a physical evaluation. We will perform blood tests, check and monitor your vital signs and make sure that you don’t have any preexisting conditions that could pose challenges or issues for your weight loss journey.

Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, TX is here to help you every step of the way so you finally get the results you want. We know how difficult self-guided weight loss can be. Turn to our weight loss medical team to get the body you want.
