Weight Loss and Wellness in Bellevue Wa
Two thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese. That staggering statistic alone drives an insatiable appetite for solutions. At La Belle Anti-Aging and Wellness Clinic in Bellevue, WA, we offer patient-customized weight loss programs that include a balance of diet, exercise, supplements and HCG.
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a natural hormone/ protein substance (glycoprotein) that has a similar effect of the LH hormone (Leuteinizing Hormone): increasing activity of the androgenic hormones released from the brain to work on other hormone producing glands.
HCG suppresses appetite at the brain level and increases genes and LH receptors, so the end effect is an increased basal metabolic rate. As well, it uses energy source from abnormal fat cell, not lean muscle, which results in natural body contour—it re-sculpts the body, weight loss is proportional to all areas.
In short, HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
Why does that matter? During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieter regains weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.
Our customized programs protect muscle from being lost. There is, in fact, more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches and size of clothing. The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps our patients maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.
HCG is safe in women and in most men.
