MAKE YOUR RESOLUTION AND KEEP IT!
According to a USNEWS statistic, 80% of people fail at their New Year’s Resolutions!
Digging a little further, we find that about two-thirds of New Year Resolutions center around health and wellness.
At City Health Services, we encourage making and keeping goals that include weight loss, and ultimately better health.
Our Synergy Medical Weight Loss program is designed to help patients lose weight and keep it off for good! We combine eating patterns, natural supplements and vitamins, accountability partners, and more to help each person fulfill their goals and feel great!
CHS Medical Weight Loss Program
At CHS, we have a great weight loss program to help patients reach their goals and ideal weight. We focus on daily function and pain management, so we start with a thorough physical evaluation, body composition evaluation, and blood work. We use these results to create a customized basic or accelerated weight loss program.
We offer several different programs based on how much weight the patient wants to lose, price, and duration. Our basic program is designed for patients that have about 20 pounds to lose (expect to lose 2-5 pounds per week), while the accelerated program is designed for patients who need to lose more than 30 pounds (expect to lose 30-60 pounds over the course of 4 months).
We include nutrition and exercise counseling in all programs. Patients learn to weigh and measure food, see what portion sizes really look like, and consume only the number of calories to reach and maintain their goal weight. Patients also have access to an accountability app that tracks calories, activity and sleep patterns. The doctor can check on the patient’s progress throughout each week, then meets with the patient on a weekly basis to help them keep to their goals and hold them accountable.
With weekly weigh-ins and monthly re-examinations, our program provides the individual attention and accountability necessary for our patients to succeed.
All About Supplements
We prescribe supplements including pharmaceutical appetite suppressants, nutritional supplements, HCG injections, and B12 with MIC injections. But what are these supplements, and how do they work?
The appetite suppressants are designed to keep you feeling full, while the nutritional supplements ensure your body receives the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are essential to health, and nutrients to keep each patient at his/her energetic best.
HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone that regulates appetite by making you feel fuller faster. This enables patients to go on low-calorie diets without feeling hungry. HCG also allows the body to use stored fat for energy while retaining lean muscle. With a physician’s medical clearance, HCG is safe and effective for both men and women to use.
The B12 with MIC injections contain vitamin B12, Methionine, Inositol, and Choline. The combination of these naturally-occurring components helps speed up metabolism, burn fat, absorb essential nutrients efficiently, preserve lean muscle mass, and promote a positive mood. Vitamin B12 plays a key role in metabolism and cell function, and aids in the release of cellular energy from fat and protein. Methionine helps our bodies dissolve fat and make protein. Inositol is a sugar alcohol that promotes glucose uptake, as well as reducing stress and boosting mood.
And finally, choline assists the liver in getting rid of toxins and fights fatigue.
