Weight Loss

We understand that it can be very difficult and frustrating to try to lose weight. At BAMMC, we offer safe and effective physician-led weight loss programs that will help you reach your weight loss goals.

Benefits of Weight Loss

Losing weight can be very beneficial in a number of ways, including:

  • Improves survival of patients with obesity-related illnesses such as Type 2 diabetes
  • Decreases blood pressure
  • Decreases dependency on medicine to lower blood sugar in patients with Type 2 diabetes
  • Prevents new cases of Type 2 diabetes
  • Improves breathing
  • Improves sleep in patients with sleep apnea
  • Boosts confidence and appearance

What Is HCG?

HCG is a glycoprotein hormone produced during pregnancy that stimulates the production of progesterone. It is extracted from the urine of pregnant women. Because the stimulation of hormone production causes an increase in metabolism, it is used in weight loss. It also stimulates the hypothalamus to release abnormal fat reserves while on a diet and increases lean muscle mass. The hypothalamus gland in the brain is stimulated by HCG to regulate the thyroid, metabolism, adrenal glands, and storage of fat to release stored nutrients in fat cells by shrinking and draining the cells’ contents.

Benefits of HCG in Weight Loss

  • Burns fat
  • Spares lean muscle
  • Protects structural fat while promoting the breakdown of abnormal fat stores
  • Targets problem areas such as abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, and chest
  • Redistributes and mobilizes fat (body shaping)
  • Decreases cravings for sweets and carbs
  • Decreases overall appetite
  • Increases sex drive in both men and women

Other Weight Loss Programs

If you don’t believe that HCG is right for you, we also offer a number of other physician-led weight loss programs utilizing:

  • MIC/Methyl B12 injectables
  • L-carnitine fat-burning injectable
  • Appetite suppressants that are FDA approved
  • Prescribed thermogenic
