All diets are not created equal.
There are many types of weight loss programs out today. The question that will arise during a person’s weight loss journey is, how do I know this will work for me? A lot of weight loss programs available today are not tailored to the individual, but rather tailored in a one size fits all category. This type of diet does not take into account other factors that may be contributing to the constant struggle of trying to lose the weight and keep it off.
At Capizzi MD, we want to assist you in looking and feeling your best! As part of this commitment to your well-being, we have designed a health and wellness program to kick start your weight loss goals and get you on a track to a healthier version of you.
How does the Wellness program at Capizzi, MD work?
The wellness program will consist of a consultation, individual diet plan, and evaluation for medications that may assist you with your weight loss goals.
What will we discuss during the consultation?
During the consultation, your weight loss goals and body composition measurements will be assessed. We will review your diet plan for the next few months as well as any supplementary medication (HCG and/ or Phentermine). It is important that you commit to the wellness plan designed for you to achieve the best results. At each appointment, you will speak with our Nurse Practitioner.
What does the Diet consist of?
Generally, the diet consists of a schedule of low-calorie lean meats, vegetables, and fruits. Exercise is not required. In fact, most often we ask that you maintain your current exercise regimen. Biometric testing along with a discussion of goals is done to help indicate the body’s make up of water, muscle, and fat composition. The Nurse Practitioner will then be able to tailor your weight loss program to your specific medical and aesthetic needs. With the diet, They may recommend the use of ancillary items such as HCG injections or Phentermine. The treatment program usually lasts 1-3 months with a weight loss approaching 100 lbs.
What is HCG?
HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a protein hormone found in our pituitary glands that triggers the body’s metabolism to burn fat deposits. Patients can now inject the hormone to accelerate the fat loss mechanism, releasing the unwanted pounds. When combined with a healthy diet and a reasonable exercise plan, HCG injections can keep the weight off permanently, as hunger is suppressed and the body’s natural metabolism is reset. They may also suggest Phentermine or Vitamin B12.
How much weight will I lose?
The amount of weight that you will lose is determined during your initial consultation. We will be behind you 100% but it will be up to the patient to achieve the goal. We have all the tools and we will work together to get you to your goal weight!
I would have never believed that one year after starting Dr. Capizzi’s Wellness/Weight loss program that I would be 70 pounds lighter!! They tailored a program specific to my needs and was right there with me, guiding me through through every step in my transformation! Within 4 months I surpassed my initial weight loss goal and totally changed my diet to lean meats, fruits and vegetables. Thanks to Dr. Capizzi and the Nurse Practitioner, one year later, I have maintained this healthy diet and feel and look like a new woman!
