Original Low-Carb Diet Details

If you are carrying around 50 or more pounds of excess weight, your BMI is probably 30 or more, which is considered obese. Bariatric (medical weight management) experts like Dr. Redrick know that carrying this amount of excess weight puts people at risk for a number of potentially serious health conditions. The higher your BMI rises above 30, the greater are your health risks.

A full-, or nearly full-meal replacement diet program that provides no more than one thousand calories each day can help you bring down your weight and health risks more quickly and safely than you could while simply following a low-calorie foods diet.

Combining physician guided meal replacement programs with other weight management tools like appetite suppressing medication and/or a lifestyle change program has been proven to help people achieve excellent weight loss results without undergoing weight loss surgery.

HCG Diet Program – From Dr. Simeon’s Manuscript

Citrus County Medical Weight Loss Diet Plans

The HCG weight loss protocol consists of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) accompanied by treatments of HCG, that are injected. The average HCG dieter experiences rapid weight loss of up to 1/2 to 1 lb. per day. In addition to loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of the HCG protocol is its ability to help modify the dieter’s relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss.

The use of HCG in the treatment of obesity was first discovered by the late British Physician, Dr. A. T. W. Simeons. He first published a report on the topic in 1954, while practicing in Rome, Italy. He devoted years to researching various patients suffering from obesity.

During this time, he noticed several important factors including the lack of symptoms one would expect from a patient on a very low calorie diet. For example, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability as long as the low calorie diet was combined with HCG.
