Struggling to Shed Those Extra Pounds? Consider a Medical Weight-Loss Program

Trying to lose weight can be frustrating. With so many weight-loss options, it’s difficult to determine which options can help you achieve the type of results you desire. In many cases, it may take weeks or months before you realize that you’ve wasted your effort, time, and money on a program that simply doesn’t deliver the outcomes it promised. 

Medical weight-loss programs stand out from other options because they’re administered by licensed health care professionals who specialize in treating overweight and obese patients. By working with these specialists, you’ll receive the tools you need to lose the weight you desire. 

Under the direction of board-certified internist Asad Shah, MD, the medical staff at Nu Image Aesthetics & Wellness Institute has helped many of our patients lose weight using medical weight-loss options that include appetite suppressants, meal replacement shakes, and B12 injections. We also offer the hCG weight-loss program, an innovative approach to appetite control and sustained weight loss.

You’ll achieve the best outcomes by working with our experts who combine experience and empathy as they monitor your health and encourage your progress. 

What are the benefits of a medical weight-loss program?

The category of medical weight-loss programs includes a wide range of medical procedures that range from bariatric surgery to doctor-supervised diets. Finding the right program involves consideration of your current health condition, medical history, and long-term goals. Whether you’re battling a lifelong weight problem or trying to shed the pounds you’ve added as you’ve aged, a medical weight-loss program can help you achieve and maintain your target weight.

When working with a healthcare provider toward weight loss, you’ll gain a partner in your weight-loss journey. As a result, you’ll attend weekly appointments during which you’ll have metabolic testing to measure your progress. Overall, the benefits of a medical weight-loss program include: 

Can I achieve results with appetite suppressants and meal replacements?

Appetite suppressants are medications that help prevent hunger so you’ll eat less food, which results in weight loss. Some suppressants work by acting on hormones in your stomach, while others work on the parts of your brain that control emotions and appetite.

Meal replacements can provide a convenient option for maintaining a low calorie count when you’re busy. These options can help you avoid eating processed food when you don’t have time to prepare a healthy meal that conforms to your diet. 

You can achieve measurable results using appetite suppressants and/or meal replacements as part of a medical weight-loss program. These options typically work best when they supplement your efforts to establish and maintain healthy eating habits and an active lifestyle. 

What’s different about the hCG weight-loss program?

Every medical weight-loss program offers a unique approach to losing weight and keeping it off. The hCG diet works to reduce cravings and help you create a new “normal” weight by resetting your appetite and metabolism. 

The hCG diet promotes weight loss by pairing the human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone and a very-low-calorie diet. HCG is a hormone that occurs naturally in large amounts during pregnancy. 

When you’re on a very-low-calorie diet, your body needs more energy than it’s consuming. The hCG hormone encourages your body to tap into and use your stored fat to sustain metabolic function and energy.

Whatever your weight-loss goals, you can achieve immediate and long-term success with a medical weight-loss program. Call our office in Elgin, Illinois, to schedule an appointment to investigate the options that can work for you.
