Specialized HCG Diet Weight Loss Programs at Nava Health and Vitality Center
Bethesda HCG Doctor LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. at Nava Health Center of Bethesda specializes in helping men and women lose weight with the HCG diet. This diet plan uses a hormone known as human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) to help the hypothalamus reset the body’s metabolism. The HCG hormone is produced naturally in a woman’s body during pregnancy stimulating the metabolizing of stored fat to nourish an unborn child if the mother is not able to take in enough daily nutrients on her own. When the hormone is used with a low-calorie diet as part of a medically supervised HCG diet plan on a patient that is not pregnant, it works in a similar way to stimulate the metabolism into burning fat stores to sustain the body.
An HCG diet plan administered by Bethesda HCG Doctor, LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. can cause rapid fat loss in men and women suffering from obesity and other weight related medical conditions. While on the diet, patients must adhere to a low-calorie diet consisting of around 500 calories per day, allowing the remaining nutrients required by the body to be taken from stored fat and burned into energy. Both men and women can benefit from the HCG diet and LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. can help you reach your weight loss goals.
HCG Programs for Women
A woman wishing to undergo a medically supervised HCG diet plan should consult with LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. to learn more about how HCG hormones coupled with a low-calorie diet plan can result in dramatic weight loss. As the HCG diet plan involves hormone supplementation, women must align the start date of the diet with their menstrual cycles to avoid any adverse hormonal imbalances that can occur. Women should also avoid cosmetic creams that may contain fatty oils or anti-inflammatory ingredients when following an HCG diet plan as they can be absorbed into the skin and affect the body’s ability to regulate fat intake and storage.
Some Benefits of HCG for Women
Women diagnosed as clinically obese, or women with a BMI over 20% are usually excellent candidates for the dramatic weight loss results of an HCG diet plan. LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. has seen countless women in the Montgomery County and Bethesda, Maryland areas achieve their weight loss goals with an HCG diet, and firmly believes that an HCG diet plan offers many benefits not available through more traditional diets such as:
- Menstrual Regularity
Irregular menstrual cycles can be caused by excess body fat carrying estrogen, and excessive estrogen levels can interfere with regular menstrual cycles. An overall improvement of the body’s health and wellness can also improve hormonal balance, which has a direct connection with menstrual cycles and regularity in women.
- Reduced PMS Symptoms
Reducing the amount of estrogen retaining body fat can help balance the levels of estrogen and progesterone in a woman’s body, which has been shown to help alleviate symptoms related to PMS including bloating, fatigue, and mood swings.
- Improved Self Esteem and Body Image
Higher self-esteem can be a result of achieving a weight loss goal and feeling healthier. An improved body image and healthier lifestyle can often result in greatly increased self-esteem and self-confidence.
HCG Programs for Men
Although the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) hormone is produced in a woman’s body during pregnancy, the function of HCG is more metabolic, and thus the HCG diet plan has been successfully and safely used to treat men suffering from obesity without any sexual side effects feared when ingesting a female hormone. The HCG diet allows men to lose weight without losing lean muscle mass by supplying the body with fuel it needs from fat stores while observing a low-calorie diet. Men diagnosed as being obese, overweight, or men with a body mass index of 20% or higher may benefit from an HCG diet plan administered and supervised by LaKeischa McMillan, M.D.
View Benefits of HCG for Men
The diet can supply enough nutrients by metabolizing fat stored in the body to keep patients from experiencing muscle atrophy. LaKeischa McMillan, M.D. can implement an HCG diet program designed specifically for each patient to help men lose weight and experience many of the numerous benefits associated with weight loss including:
- Improved Workout Performance
Losing weight with an HCG diet eliminates estrogen-storing fat deposits and can increase the production of testosterone in men, which can result in more energy, stamina, and increased muscle growth. Therefore, men can achieve longer and more productive workouts, burning more calories while building more muscle than ever before.
- Increased Sexual Function & Libido
Increased testosterone levels and the loss of excess body fat can have both physical and mental effects on men. Improved self-confidence, more energy, and a new body image can help many men regain interest in sexual activity, as well as improve sexual performance and energy. Higher testosterone levels and decreased body fat has also been connected to alleviating sexual conditions such as erectile dysfunction in men.
- Retained Muscle Integrity
Another benefit of losing weight with a Maryland HCG Diet plan for men is the preservation of muscle integrity while observing such a low-calorie diet. Most men are able to lose fat without the fear of losing muscle mass and strength, commonly associated with more traditional diet plans that do not include HCG supplementation.
- Improved Metabolic Performance
Changing eating habits is a big part of a successful diet, and most patients on an HCG diet plan are able to implement better food choices even after the diet is over in an effort to preserve the weight loss results achieved. This new, clean diet, coupled with the lasting effects HCG can have on the metabolism often result in a totally reset metabolism improving energy levels, digestion, and many other bodily functions.
