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.

HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. So, how exactly does this hormone facilitate weight loss?

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.

This is where having a weight loss team on your side can truly help.

HCGIf you are one of the many Houston, TX residents trying to lose weight, chances are you've been monitoring what you eat to make sure that you don't eat too much, particularly of foods that are high in calories or fat. What you may not realize, however, is that not all fat is the same and not all fat is bad. If you want to see real weight loss that lasts, you have to cut out the right types of fat.

Every day, Babak Rejaie, MD sees people at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, TX who want to lose weight but who aren't going about it the right way. Learn more about the three different types of fat and how the HCG Program can help you lose unwanted weight the right way here.

Three Types of Fat

  • Structural Fat: Structural fat can be found in the gaps between the organs. It cushions and protects the organs and other internal structures of the body as you move. This type of fat is necessary for good health.
  • Normal Fat: Normal fat is the fat that provides your body with additional energy when needed. It is stored all throughout the body and does not cause obesity. Some amount of normal fat is also necessary for good health.
  • Abnormal Fat: Abnormal fat is fat that is not accessible to the body for nutritional purposes. Even if your body needs additional calories, your body will cause you to feel hungry instead of using this stubborn fat. If you are overweight or obese and need to lose weight, this is the type of body fat you want to lose.

How the HCG Program Can Help

Here at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, TX, we know just how difficult it can be to get rid of abnormal fat. This is why we offer the HCG Program as one easy and effective way to remove this extra fat.

According to Dr. ATW Simeons, an increased amount of the HCG hormone in the body can act as an appetite suppressant, allowing the body to burn through abnormal fat stores without the unpleasant and painful hunger that is often associated with dieting. With the HCG Program, you can finally lose the extra fat without needing to starve yourself in the process.

While medical researchers are still debating over the effectiveness of this particular hormone, many people have already seen dramatic transformations, and we'd like to help you experience one of your own!

If your previous weight loss attempts have been ineffective at best or painful at worst, make today the day you try something new. Call Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, TX to set up an appointment to speak to Dr. Rejaie about the HCG Program today.

You may have heard about the HCG program and its amazing results from television or magazine advertisements. While the idea of rapid weight loss is very appealing for those who have struggled with other diet and exercise programs in the past, it's important to get Weight lossthe facts about this program. Dr. Babak Rejaie and his team of weight loss professionals at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic in Houston, Texas, are here to answer a few common questions about the HCG program.

What does HCG stand for?

HCG is short for "human chorionic gonadotropin," a naturally-occurring hormone produced in the pituitary gland. It is generally associated with pregnancy, as it causes female reproductive cells (eggs) to be released during the ovulation cycle and then supports a fertilized egg's development.

How does it work from a dieting standpoint?

HCG, which can be supplemented via injection for those who are not producing it naturally through pregnancy, is believed to trigger the body to release the abnormal fat that builds up from a high-calorie diet. At the same time, it helps to support the body's functions while the person dramatically reduces their calorie intake, preventing feelings of extreme hunger and fatigue and helping to drop the weight rapidly while working directly with their Houston weight loss clinic.

Is this a new "fad" diet?

The idea behind the HCG program has actually been around since the 1950's. A British endocrinologist, Dr. A. Simeons, published information about his research in the mid-20th century. He began this research after noting that even women living in famine-stricken developing countries were able to maintain their pregnancies and give birth to healthy, full-term babies. The reason, he discovered, was due to HCG, the hormone released into the body during ovulation and ultimately pregnancy.

Is it safe?

When working with licensed healthcare providers, like Dr. Rejaie at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic, the HCG program can be extremely helpful for those who are obese and at risk for developing serious health complications. However, there are quite a few over-the-counter products that claim to be good alternatives. It is imperative that you do not begin any weight loss program without speaking to a doctor first. At your Houston weight loss clinic, you will have a thorough physical evaluation, including blood testing, to determine your eligibility for the HCG program.

Learn more about the myths surrounding the HCG Program so you can be decide whether this weight loss plan is right for you.

According to the NIH, about two-thirds of American adults are obese or overweight, and about 114 million have problems losing weight. While losing weight can sometimes be as simple as eating right and working out more, there is often more to it.

That’s why we offer the HCG Program, which has helped countless patients in Houston shed the pounds without losing muscle. Since the program requires daily HCG intake (a hormone found in pregnant women) and a low calorie diet, there have been a lot of rumors being spread about this program. Learn more about the top myths surrounding this HCG weight loss program.

Myth #1: This program’s low caloric intake could be dangerous.

Fact: If someone not on the HCG program decided to follow a 500-calorie-a-day plan then they could do some serious harm to themselves; however, the reason the HCG program works with such a low caloric intake is that HCG is taken each day, which makes the body consume fat instead of muscle for energy. Furthermore, this calorie-restrictive program is only part of the first 4-week phase, after which your daily intake increases.

Myth #2: HCG doesn’t actually do anything or affect weight loss.

Fact: While it might seem odd that a hormone found in pregnant women helps people lose weight, this hormone actually targets and uses stored fat for energy. Of course if you didn’t take the HCG pills and only consumed 500 calories per day then it would be difficult to lose the weight and keep it off; however, the HCG helps get rid of unwanted fat deposits.

Myth #3: The HCG program causes serious side effects.

Fact: Not everyone will experience side effects while on the HCG program; however, as with consuming any supplement, some people can be sensitive to its effects. Some may experience dizziness or irritability, which could be brought about by low blood sugar. However, the best way to combat these symptoms is to incorporate foods into your 500-calorie diet that helps boast blood sugar.

By being able to separate fact from fiction you can now make an informed decision regarding whether the HCG program is right for you. To find out more about weight loss in Houston by contacting us at Memorial Weight Loss Clinic, PLLC.
