MD WEIGHT LOSS
Weight loss is a tricky subject and unfortunately the amount of calories taken in by the patient does NOT translate into
Medical Weight Loss at the Wellington Institute incorporates different therapies that are necessary for weight loss, especially in difficult patients.
In Dr. Cabanellas experience, a combination of 4 modalities are essential for weight loss:
- HCG Diet — This diet uses the HCG hormone (already in our bodies) which causes “selective weight loss” or weight loss in the areas that the person needs.
- Hormonal Replacement (if needed) — Hormonal replacement is especially used in difficult patients like menopausal women, which works against the body in storing excess fat.
- Appetite Suppressants — Although HCG is a natural appetite suppressant, some patients may experience hunger and anxiety which translate into excess eating. Appetite Suppressants make sure the patient can stick to the diet and lose the weight in an “easier” way.
- Vitamins/Supplements — They improve energy & good mood which are crucial for the weight loss process.
