In addition, we provide constant coaching and education to help you maintain your weight loss, achieve your health goals and change your life for the long term.

Individualized Plan

Our team will do a thorough weight-loss consultation and evaluation, then design a unique program based on your individual needs and goals. Our medical team understands that no two people are exactly the same, so we’ve developed a weight loss program that features:

  • A customized/flexible weight loss plan that is designed for you specifically.
  • A weekly one-on-one meeting with our Nurse Practitioner to track your progress and/or change your plan if necessary.
  • Education. One of the keys to successful weight loss is understanding what you’re doing and why. Your program will not only include your initial assessment, but our healthcare providers will also sit down and review your eating habits and set up a successful nutritional program based on your individual needs.

Follow up assessments and ongoing coaching helps our patients continue to stay motivated and achieve their weight-loss goals.

Results

The doctors at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine offer the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) diet, which consists of hormone injections and a strict daily calorie allowance. HCG is used to curb appetite and protect lean muscle mass while you lose fat. HCG is a hormone that is produced by the body to help aid in burning fat. This hormone also has an amazing effect in resetting the body’s natural stress hormones. We have seen incredible results using this protocol.

We understand that better nutrition and exercise are the key ingredients in helping the patient lose weight, but our system allows for that little extra push and motivation that patients need to start a proper program and SEE RESULTS FAST!

FAQ

What is the HCG diet?2019-01-09T15:02:47-04:00

The doctors at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine offer the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) diet, which consists of hormone injections and a strict daily calorie allowance.

The protein-based hormone HCG is typically found in women during the early stages of pregnancy. It’s what alerts the body that you’re pregnant. HCG regulates the production of essential hormones like progesterone and estrogen, protecting the fetus and embryo.

In injection form, HCG is basically a fertility drug that essentially metabolizes your body’s stored fat quickly. This keeps you highly energized on a low-calorie diet.

The HCG diet can be beneficial for people who are obese.

What are the risks of obesity?2019-01-09T15:30:46-04:00

Obesity is prevalent in over 35% of adults in the United States and can cause serious health complications, such as:

Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most common side effect of obesity.

Heart disease

Obesity can lead to severe heart-related issues, including:

  • Blood clots
  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Angina
  • High blood pressure

Obesity increases your chances of high blood pressure, which damages your artery walls because your blood is traveling at too fast a speed.

Osteoarthritis

Excess weight adds pressure on the joints and can cause mobility complications and joint damage.

Cancer

Women struggling with obesity are more likely of contracting the following cancers:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Gallbladder cancer

Men, on the other hand, run the risk of prostate and colon cancer.
