Healthy eating habits which can include five to six small meals per day. And lastly, of course, proper nutrition and exercise– which can include a weight training program three times per week, cardiovascular exercise three-five times per week, and flexibility training. Meditation or prayer may also be useful in gaining perspective and the ability to look at the “glass half full,” so to speak.
Diet & Weight Loss Protocol
During the diet, 125 – 225 iu of hCG is administered daily. For the first three days of injections, the patient is allowed to eat as excessively as possible. Following the third injection day, the 500-1000 calorie diet are applied and continue through 72 hours after the last injection. For the continuing
three weeks, all foods are allowed except sugar and refined starches. After the three weeks, starches are re-introduced into the diet in very small quantities and weight is monitored to ensure weight maintenance.

In doing so, the weight lost comes directly from fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. For this reason, MediBolic Fat Loss Plan dieters report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual.

Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a candidate for medical weight loss?
You may be a candidate for medical weight loss if your previous attempts to lose weight have been unsuccessful. Contact our office to schedule a consultation and find out more about our treatment options for overweight and obese patients.
What should I expect during a medical weight loss program?
We take a multifaceted approach to helping our patients lose weight. We always begin with nutritional counseling and lifestyle modifications that help increase cardiovascular output, lower stress, and improve sleep – all factors that can aid in healthy weight loss. Additional interventions are necessary on a case-by-case basis. For example, some patients are struggling with weight loss due to nutritional imbalances or skipped meals. Others may be facing hormonal imbalances that pack on the pounds. Our treatment options help break through weight loss barriers and turn the body into a fat-burning machine.
What types of results can I expect after completing a medical weight loss program?
Weight loss outcomes vary from patient to patient and treatment carries no guarantee of results. However, patients who are a part of a medically-personalized weight loss program are more likely to obtain significant long-term results than those who attempt to lose weight using diet or exercise alone.
