The physician-directed weight loss program at Lift, Laser and Body helps you lose weight with the use of all natural metabolic boosters and a very low calorie diet. The original diet was created by Dr. ATW Simeon in the 1950s. Dr. Simeon had a large clinic in Rome Italy where people from around the world would come to go on his diet and lose weight. His diet and work are discussed in the book "Pounds and Inches." The concept of the program is based on the power of metabolic boosters to change a person's metabolism. Dr. Simeon found a hormone present in the body during early pregnancy that controls many metabolic functions of the body. When combined with a special low calorie diet, hormones can force your body to utilize stored fat and lose weight rapidly. In addition, because the hormones actually changes the body's metabolism, a person is able to maintain the very low calorie diet without feeling hungry and without feeling weak. In fact, many people actually report an increase in energy during the day as well as better sleep at night.
The use of hormones for weight loss must be prescribed by a physician to be legal. Hormone preparations purchased off the internet and without a doctor's prescription may not contain any hormones at all and are frequently fraudulent in nature. Furthermore, these internet products may contain chemicals that may actually be dangerous to your health. A proper weight loss program requires a physician who is knowledgeable about the diet. You must have an initial evaluation to see if you are healthy enough for the program. The evaluation must also include a comprehensive blood test to make sure that there are no other problems that may be contributing to your weight gain. If you are deemed to be a good candidate, the doctor will write you a prescription for the medication and give you a detailed protocol for the diet. The doctor will then supervise your diet program which will include blood tests every two weeks and follow up visits. Proper monitoring to prevent potential problems associated with such a low calorie diet is essential for ensuring your safety and success.
In our office, most women lose between 20 and 30 pounds in the first forty days although it is not uncommon to see weight loss approaching 40 pounds. Weight loss has been even more dramatic in our male patients. Our most successful male patient lost 48 pounds in only 40 days! With two rounds of the program, we have seen weight loss exceed 70 pounds! One of the best things about the physician-directed diet is that there does not appear to be a rebound effect. Fasting alone, without doctor supervision, would likely result in quick weight gain. However, we do not typically see that with the medical weight loss diet. However, over time it is still important to change your lifestyle to include healthy eating, diet and exercise. Otherwise, eventually the weight will come back. The physician-directed diet is best seen as a "jump start" to a new lifestyle. Losing significant amounts of weight in a short period of time is very motivating!
