Many people at some time in their lives gained some weight and wanted to lose a few pounds, but sometimes it can be hard to get back to a healthy weight and maintain it. If you’re struggling with weight loss, it might be time to think about talking to a weight loss specialist. Dr. Babak Rejaie is a weight loss specialist at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston TX. He provides a supervised weight loss program that uses HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormone.

Different Types of Body Fat

There are several different types of body fat:

  • Essential body fat: As the name suggests, you need this type of fat. It is located throughout your body and helps to regulate your body temperature, produce fertility hormones, and absorb vitamins. You do not target this fat for weight loss.
  • Brown fat: This fat is burned for energy and also helps to maintain your body temperature. This fat is easily burned, particularly when it’s cold.
  • White fat: This comprises your body’s largest percentage of fat storage. It is important for balancing blood sugar and the management of insulin. It also plays a role in hunger management. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help you reduce white fat
  • Beige fat: Stress causes white fat to turn into beige fat. Although this type of fat isn’t necessarily a target for weight loss, reducing it can help maintain healthier levels of brown fat. You can reduce beige fat with vigorous interval training.

Weight Loss And HCG

At your Houston Weight Loss Clinic, you can choose between a 26 or 43 day HCG diet protocol. HCG hormone is believed to help you burn more fat while also reducing your appetite and preventing you from feeling tired while you are dieting. Along with the course of HCG treatment, Dr. Babak Rejaie offers a specially designed meal plan and medical supervision to help you stick to your weight loss plan.
