Today we are going to talk about a very important topic: Weight Loss

RC: Hi Dr. Shepherd how are you today?

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: Hello Liz, it’s great to be back with you again. I’m doing great.

RC: Great. Well thanks so much for being here.

Question 1: Your practice provides the HCG Medical Weight Loss program. Can you tell us what HCG stands for and what role it plays in our bodies?

RC: So weight loss is a big goal for people after the holidays and most people struggle with it all year long. Your practice provides the HCG Medical Weight Loss program. Can you tell us what HCG stands for and what role it plays in our bodies?

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: Absolutely, that’s a great question and the reason we use the abbreviation is the name itself sounds very peculiar. ‘HCG’ stands for human chorionic gonadotropin and simply it is a super hormone and it’s produced by all individuals both men and women alike. It’s also produced in very large amounts by women during pregnancy and it’s known as being the kind of catalyst hormone that stimulates the productions of all the other hormones throughout the body.

So what that’s going to do is in turn, it will affect the body’s metabolism, muscle tissue,  digestion, liver functions and multiple others. Now it’s no secret that hormone balance and function is one of the most common causes of weight challenges especially severe obesity. So what HCG’s role in the diet plan is –  it helps the body balance out these hormonal issues and then in turn, it allows the body to function at an optimal rate of performance. So few people know that simple pauses in the body’s natural functions can cause an inability for the body to process and use fat as energy which is the natural purpose for fat rather than just storage.

Question 2: What features does the HCG Weight Loss Program include?

RC: And what features does the HCG Weight Loss Program include?

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: Well the original HCG diet and weight loss program was created by Dr. Simeon many many years ago and over the years (as physicians) we’ve modified the protocols to suit today’s lifestyles and people’s needs that have changed over time. Our diet contains along with the HCG hormone itself, multiple different nutritional supplements to give the body support in detoxification, metabolic rate increases, liver and blood sugar support which is extremely important. And we also employ the use of ion cleanse detoxification foot baths, vibrational therapy which is designed to stimulate the lymphatic system and speed the elimination of the liberated fat cells. And in some cases, we’ll also use lypo-lasers which is just going to help eliminate the stubborn fat and cellulite. We employ alkaline water and the diet itself is obviously a specific calorie reduced diet.

Question 3: What factors do you consider when you tailor the program to each individual?

RC: And what factors do you consider when you tailor the program to each individual?

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: You used the right words there, each individual client. Our plans are really tailored to the individual themselves. Everybody has their own specific set of goals and needs in regards to weight loss so we sit down with a thorough consultation which allows us to really customize an HCG program to each individual. No two plans are ever going to be the same and we’re even able to help out clients out of state. So we have a phone and email coaching program so we’re able to provide the support that’s needed so if you’re not local, in Texas, it doesn’t matter, you can still get great success utilizing this program.

Question 4: Why does the HCG Weight Loss Program work better than other calorie restricting diets?

RC: Okay and why does the HCG Weight Loss Program work better than other calorie restricting diets

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: The HCG works better than other reduced or low calorie diets because the hormone itself stimulates your metabolism to burn fat while maintaining the lean, healthy muscle mass they have. Meaning, with other diets, it’s actually very easy to lose weight, many people just with a calorie reduced diet and reduction of high fats can lose weight and a lot of that is just water weight and it will come back on quickly. But the HCG is the ultimate weight-loss program that just changes how your body loses weight. The HCG stimulates all the other hormones in the body to maintain existing lean muscle mass and at the same time it’s increasing your metabolism to burn more of the stored fat at a really impressive rate. So you can expect dramatic weight loss that will potentially last for years. And because of the hormone, the HCG itself, very little to no hunger even though you are doing a reduced calorie diet. And our plans, again tailored specifically, it’s going to be a calorie reduced diet of somewhere between 600 to 1500 calories a day.

Question 5: How does someone get started on an HCG Weight Loss Program?

RC: And how does someone get started on an HCG Weight Loss Program?

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: Well the first thing with any weight loss program really is to make that decision. You’ve got to be committed to it. So when you know what your goals are, when you’re ready to make some lifestyle modifications. Because this is not a miracle magic diet, it takes participation from the individual client. Our job is to support and coach and we do that very well but the initial decision has to be a commitment. And it really is a commitment for somewhere minimum of fifteen days and it can be upwards of three-four-five months depending on the individuals needs and really just how much weight they are looking to lose.

So on our websites we have a lot of information that’s listed, fill out questionnaires… to help you really understand what your own goals are and then we’ll sit down one-on-one and talk through that with a consultation and put an HCG plan in place for you.

RC: Great well thank you so much Dr. Shepherd! We know you’re extremely busy so I just want to thank you for your time and all your help today.

Dr. Andrew Shepherd: Absolutely, you’re very welcome.
