Hundreds of magazine covers display weight loss tips, secrets and fads to help people who want to shed fat. "The prevalence of severe obesity was highest among adults aged 40–59 compared with other age groups," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr. Babak Rejaie of Memorial Weight Loss Center is cognizant of this growing issue in the USA and offers his Houston, TX, the HCG Program to counter obesity.

More About Obesity

Obesity is a treatable disease where a person has excess amount of body fat because of genetic and/or environmental factors. There are three types of fat:

  • Structural Fat is found between organs. It keeps skin taut, and provides cushion and protection for organs and coronary arteries.
  • Normal Fat is second type of fat. It is used as a fuel reserve and is located all over the body to fuel muscular activity and maintain body temperature.
  • Abnormal Fat could also be a fuel reserve but isn't available to the body in a nutritional emergency like normal fat. An obese patient first loses normal fat reserves then structural fat before losing the abnormal fat if they reduce their caloric intake. This results in people eventually abandoning their diet.

What is the HCG Program?

The Human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (HCG hormone), a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation, triggers your body to shed abnormal fats. Memorial Weight Loss Center in Houston offers both 26 and 43 day HCG programs. They also offer meal plans that adhere to the HCG program.

The HCG diet is a low-fat, low-calorie diet, and is divided into into three phases:

  1. Loading phase is when you're going to start taking the HCG hormone and eat plenty of high-fat, high-calorie foods for two days.
  2. Weight loss phase is when you'll continue taking the HCG hormone but eat only 500 calories per day for about 3–6 weeks.
  3. Maintenance phase is when you'll stop taking HCG and slowly increase food intake (avoid sugar and starch for three weeks).
