What You Really Lose With Traditional Dieting

You’re loving how you look! It took hard work, persistence, and self-control. That’s what dieting is all about. You walk a little taller and put more sass in your step. It feels great!

But then something happens after you reach your goal weight. If you’re like most people, your motivation slips. Not only does the weight come back, it brings a truckload of friends with it!

What happened? It’s actually very simple. Traditional dieting caused you to lose both fat and muscle. And while that looks good on the scales, losing muscle causes your metabolism to slow way down.

That’s why you gain back the weight you lost, and then some. Even worse, it takes a long time to rebuild the muscle you dieted away. Sound familiar?

It’s discouraging, yes, but now, thanks to the groundbreaking work of board certified physician, Sheri L. Emma, MD, traditional dieting just got a total makeover. Dr. Emma performed years of clinical studies on the use of HCG injections, a pro-hormone in the body that helps make more hormones.  She also included a very healthy diet and exercise. The results were astonishing!

You may recall that HCG injections have been a very controversial way of losing weight. Not any more. Dr. Emma’s study showed that while people lose about the same amount of weight with traditional dieting as they do with the updated HCG diet, there’s one incredible difference.

Her HCG patients keep the weight off!

You don’t lose weight faster with the HCG True Diet, you lose it differently. You’ll keep much more muscle while becoming leaner. At the same time, you’ll build a stronger metabolism, which helps you maintain your weight loss long after the diet is completed.

And yes, there are other HCG diets on the market that advocate the use of HCG drops, pills, and sprays for weight loss. Beware! Only HCG injections have been clinically proven for dramatic weight reduction. How dramatic? With HCG, you can lose up to a pound a day!

Not all HCG diets are created equally, and our clients lose more weight and keep it off thanks to the proprietary program Dr. Sanchez has created. Ready to learn more? Come in for a consult with us today. Get the weight off and keep it off. We can show you how!

Is A Restricted Calorie Diet Healthy And Safe?

Calorie restricted diets do work. However, without proper medical supervision, they can cause more problems than they solve. How? Any time you restrict your diet you run the risk of losing not only fat but muscle, too.

Your body doesn’t like that, and you gain the weight back, plus more. That’s why we don’t advocate traditional calorie-restricted diets. Instead, we use the physician supervised HCG True Diet.

Three Steps to Success

Step 1: Our experts place you on a customized calorie-restricted diet for 40 days. You learn how to choose your proteins, carbohydrates and vegetables for the healthiest restricted diet possible.

Step 2:  You will receive injections of HCG, a pro-hormone in your body that helps your body make more hormones. However, when used as a weight loss aid, HCG appears to suppress your appetite. And that’s what our clients report. It allows them to comfortably eat much less.

HCG injections burn the fat you already have stored but spares the muscle. That’s critical. When muscle is burned, rebound weight gain is bound to occur. Your body loves the HCG True Diet because it burns only stored fat.

That allows for a stronger metabolism. And that’s the key to keeping the weight off long term.

Step 3: A moderate amount of exercise is essential to the success of this program. Approaching a calorie-restricted diet this way accomplishes two weight loss goals:

With a physician supervised restricted diet you learn how to eat very healthy.
It’s a diet program that can be successful for the rest of your life.
The 40 days that you are on the diet is the springboard for a much healthier lifestyle. It allows you to embrace good health and healthy habits you will use for a lifetime.

With the HCG True Diet, the weight loss can be dramatic, as much as a pound a day. And unlike traditional weight loss diets, the weight stays off.

When was the last time a traditional diet could offer those benefits to you?

What You Really Lose With Traditional Dieting

Whether you need to lose 15 pounds or 150 pounds you can probably relate to the following:

You’re loving how you look! It took hard work, persistence, and self-control. That’s what dieting is all about. You walk a little taller and put more sass in your step. It feels great!

Get Beach Ready with HCG Weight Loss

If you are looking for a way to get beach ready with long-term success, the key to real weight loss is changing the body’s metabolism. One effective way to do this is with a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG).

The best diet is one that not only promotes weight loss but also incorporates lifestyle changes for long-term results. Losing weight, creating better health, and improving your physical fitness all require you to take action. The HCG diet will help you kick start your journey to better health.

What is HCG and how does it promote weight loss?

HCG is the pregnancy hormone. When introduced to the blood, it tricks the body into thinking it’s pregnant and changes the body’s metabolism. Combining HCG with a low-calorie diet forces the body to utilize nutrients stored within the body. Instinctually, the body will want to “feed the baby,” but since there is no baby, it mobilizes fat deposits for nutrition. As the fat stores are being used, weight begins to drop off.

How does HCG differ from other diets?

HCG is a prescription drug and must be administered by a physician, so, unlike many diet programs, the HCG True Diet is medically supervised. This supervision will ensure that weight is lost quickly and safely. Support services include:

• Education on how HCG works and the physiological effects on your body

• Health evaluation and continual monitoring throughout the program

• Nutritional counseling to ensure tolerance to 500 calorie diet

• Encouragement and emotional support to stay persistent in your weight loss actions

• Education on continued weight management after the program

The diet also requires a strict caloric intake of 500 calories per day. Although it seems like a very small amount of food, it is more than adequate combined with the power of HCG. As long as you are eating the right foods and taking the required dietary supplements, you will feel fine and have plenty of energy.

“I lost 20 pounds in just one month! I feel fine and have energy to do my daily activities. It’s easy, and I am never really hungry. I am so glad I tried HCG.”—C.S.

Who can use this diet?

The program works well for both men and women. In fact, men often lose more weight than women. HCG produces the same metabolic effects to burn fat in both genders. Men won’t experience any “pregnancy” symptoms. The HCG diet is for anyone who wants to lose weight and improve their overall health. It’s especially useful for those who have hit a plateau with traditional diet and exercise and are having trouble losing those last few pounds. Changing the metabolism will successfully burn that fat.

What kind of results can I expect?

HCG works very quickly. It’s not uncommon to lose one or two pounds a day. Most people will lose around 20 pounds during the course of the diet program. When you see immediate results, it’s easy to stay motivated.

If you’re ready to see if the HCG diet will give you the weight loss results you have been looking for, call (956) 683-9820 to book for free consultation. This is the year to be fit and fabulous. Let Beautique show you how.

Beach Body Transformations

Spring is here, which means swimsuit season is just around the corner. Not bikini ready? Not to worry. Beautique offers highly effective body rejuvenation therapies that tighten and contour so your body will be beach ready in no time.

3DEEP Body Therapy

3DEEP is an FDA-approved technology that uses radio frequency to treat sagging skin and wrinkles non-invasively. Energy is delivered to the deepest layers of the skin to promote the production of collagen, which improves overall skin surface texture while reducing unwanted fine lines and wrinkles and replacing them with firmer skin. It provides skin tightening and contouring anywhere on the body where sagging or loose skin exists. Popular areas include:

• Neck and lower jaw

• Waist and abdomen

• Chest

• Buttocks

• Upper arms

• Hips and thighs

Deep heating causes the skin to contract and tighten while stimulating new collagen production, bringing fresh new skin to the surface. Collagen production continues long after the treatment session to further tighten skin and yield a youthful, tightened, and lifted appearance. 3DEEP also facilitates smooth skin by improving blood flow, promoting breakdown of fatty deposits, and promoting drainage of retained fluids within the skin.

Vacuodermie

Vacuodermie is a non-invasive procedure that increases blood flow at different levels of the skin while simultaneously stretching the connective tissue to allow room for more circulation.

Vacuodermie stimulates the natural functions of the body and remains both safe and comfortable. Treatments result in soft and new looking skin. It’s effective for body contouring, cellulite and scars.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a non-invasive procedure in which medication is injected into targeted areas to treat excess fat and cellulite, reduce fine lines and rejuvenate the face.

It can deliver a host of medications directly into areas of concern. When tailored to weight loss, injectables oxidize fat, shrink cells, weaken connective tissue and increase cell production. Fat released into the body is metabolized in exercise or excreted. Mesotherapy sessions are used in conjunction with exercise and diet regimens.

Mesotherapy is a permanent solution that can eliminate dimpling and extra fat under the skin. Most patients lose anywhere from two to four inches where their cellulite was treated. On specific targeted areas, some patients can lose up to six inches.

Call (956) 664-1234 today for more information on body rejuvenation therapies or to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.

Losing Weight with Water

Woman drinking waterDieting is tough, but one of the easiest methods for promoting weight loss is drinking water. We all know water is good for us and our bodies need it to survive, but it can also help melt the pounds away.

According to a recent study at Virginia Tech, drinking just two 8-ounce glasses of water before meals will help you lose weight. Drinking water helps you shed pounds for the simple reason that is has no calories and fills up the stomach, so you eat less.

How much water you should drink a day isn’t really known. The common recommendation is to drink eight, 8-ounce glasses, but some health professionals would argue that fact. Regardless, without the right amount of water, a person cannot absorb food properly. People who eat healthy food but never touch water are still not working up to par as the body cannot flush out the waste product produced from food. This can lead to health conditions that could be avoided by just drinking water regularly. Illnesses that are produced from being overweight are a prime examples.

It’s probably safe to say that most of us of aren’t drinking enough water, so here are three easy ways to incorporate more water into any diet regimen:

1. Start Your Day With a Glass of Water

Drink a glass of cool water when you first wake up. It’s a wonderful way to start your day. A glass of water lets out all your digestive juices and sort of lubricates the insides of your body. Keeping a glass next to your bed will help you remember.

2. Drink a Glass of Water Before Every Meal

Water naturally needs some space in your stomach, so you will feel fuller and will be less likely to gorge yourself during the meal.

3. Drink Water During Your Meals

Drinking water while you eat will also make you feel fuller faster, so you’ll be less likely to over eat. Instead of gulping it down, take smaller sips after each bite or two.

Fight the Battle of the Bulge with HCG

Waist measurementObesity is a national epidemic. It’s estimated that one-third of Americans are overweight. Each year $40 billion is spent on weight loss programs and products. Some will find success, but it’s rarely long term. Most will fail. The key to real weight loss is changing the body’s metabolism. One effective way to do this is with a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG).
