Weight Loss Q & A

Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics

What is involved in a medical weight loss program?

Medical weight loss programs typically include prescription medication, special personalized diet plans, and dietary supplements. Your Vintage Wellness provider recommends the appropriate program for you after considering your goals, needs, medical history, and other factors.

You receive a personalized weight loss treatment plan from your Vintage Wellness provider, who also monitors your progress, adjusts your program as needed, answers your questions, and ensures your safety throughout the entire process.

Vintage Wellness offers several medical weight loss programs, including:

  • HCG
  • Ideal Protein
  • Vitamin B12 and lipotropic injections

What is the hCG diet?

hCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced during pregnancy. You will receive an HCG cream that is applied to your inner wrists. By applying the hCG cream in combination with eating a low-calorie diet, you trigger your hypothalamus gland to start burning your excess fat storages for energy. This stimulates your weight loss and allows you to drop pounds quickly.

On the hCG diet, you receive hCG and follow a rigorous diet plan in three phases:

  • Days 1 and 2: Eat a lot of rich, fatty foods
  • Days 3 to 30: Eat a limited, 500-calorie-per-day diet
  • Maintenance phase: Eat food with a calorie count that maintains your weight

What is Ideal Protein?

The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol helps you lose weight while learning to live a healthier lifestyle. To help you accomplish these goals, Ideal Protein uses a four-stage system that limits the number of carbohydrates you eat to encourage your body to burn fat for energy.

The Ideal Protein program focuses on high biological protein foods, which support muscle mass and development. This program also allows you to develop smart eating and lifestyle habits that can support a lifetime of healthy weight management, instead of leaving you wondering what’s next when the diet’s over.

After completing Ideal Protein, you can expect the following program benefits:

  • Improved blood sugar
  • More energy
  • Better appetite control
  • A boost in pride and confidence
  • Extensive knowledge of how the body stores and uses fat
  • An understanding of micronutrients’ role in weight loss

How do lipotropic cocktail injections improve weight loss?

Maintaining the levels of vitamins and essential minerals in your body is critical to successful weight loss. That’s why your provider at Vintage Wellness may suggest supplement injections to help your body maintain a healthy balance during weight loss, including:

  • Lipotropic agents to break down fat in your digestive tract
  • Choline, methionine, and inositol to promote healthy liver function and metabolism
  • Vitamin B12 to boost energy levels and promote cellular formation

Your provider may recommend these injections alone or in combination with the hCG diet.
