Medical Weight Loss
The whole process of losing weight and keeping it off is extremely difficult and frustrating. Often, patients who have utilized our medical weight loss programs have already tried losing weight but without any luck. The truth is, most people tend to regain 97 percent of weight lost on fad diets.
Medical weight loss programs offer many benefits over traditional weight loss methods. In addition to ensuring your health is not compromised while dieting, the support, and motivation of the staff of North Dallas Wellness Center and Dr. David Fein may be just what the doctor ordered to help you permanently shed those extra pounds.
Obesity is a significant medical concern in the United States. It is estimated that 2 of every 3 American adults are overweight or obese. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater comes with health risks including Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, cancer, high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, stroke, and heart disease.
If you have been diagnosed as significantly overweight or obese, yet are unable to lose the pounds, medical weight loss at North Dallas Wellness Center may be the answer.
HCG Protocol Medical Weight Loss Program
British physician Dr. Albert Theodore Willliam Simeons did much of the early research in the late 1950s that explored utilizing human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) for weight loss. His research proposed that HCG had an effect on the hypothalamus, which regulates hormones that help metabolize excess body fat. Coupled with a very low-calorie diet (VLCD), the HCG protocol has helped tens of thousands of men and women lose up to one pound per day during their 21- or 42-day treatment.
At North Dallas Wellness Center, Dr. David Fein now offers DNA testing for obesity as well as prescription appetite suppressants to help improve the medical weight loss outcome.
Slim-Down Medical Weight Loss Program
Our ‘Slim-Down’ medical weight loss program is managed by Lindsay LaBarge, North Dallas Wellness Center’s nutrition and fitness director, who identifies and customizes ideal protein and carbohydrate combinations based on a patient’s personal body composition analysis as well as DNA testing for obesity. Coupled with a prescription appetite suppressant and North Dallas Wellness Center “Slim-Shots,” patients can expect to lose 12 – 24 pounds.
If you would like more information concerning medical weight loss utilizing HCG, our Slim-Down program, or DNA testing for obesity, contact North Dallas Wellness Center today at (214) 696-3885 to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Fein.
