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.
