Medical Weight Loss: How It Works

Happy New Year! As we all focus on our resolutions for 2012, perhaps one of yours is weight loss. Have you ever considered medical weight loss? Medical weight loss is a system in which, under a physician's supervision, you will be able to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. At Lecada, your doctor-directed plan uses a personalized multi-leveled approach to educate you about nutrition, eating habits and fitness. Your plan may include Exilis skin tightening, HCG injections or guide you toward your most effective weight loss method.

Nutrition Education
Nutrition can seem like a complicated subject. The more you research, the more conflicting and confusing advice you will find. With professional guidance, dieting does not need to be unhealthy or impossible. A physician-directed approach to weight loss will not only help you shed stubborn pounds, it will help you maintain your healthy diet once the weight is gone.
Exilis Skin Tightening
This approach works best for those with only a few trouble spots, rather than an overall problem with obesity. Using ultrasonic waves with controlled heating, fat cells break down and the skin tightens, making your trouble spot slimmer, without leaving extra skin behind. Exilis skin tightening usually requires four sessions a couple weeks apart, although you will usually start seeing results after your first appointment.  Coupled with a healthy lifestyle, the results are permanent.
HCG Injections
Human chorionic gonadotropin, or HCG, is a natural hormone that pregnant women produce in the hypothalamus to control metabolism. When used as an agent for weight loss, it can be effective in controlling metabolism in both men and women.  HCG injections cause the hypothalamus to start breaking down abnormally high body fat before anything else, causing fat build-ups to be depleted quickly. Learning to stick with a nutritious diet is essential to long-term success with HCG injections.
