Weight Management

Why is weight management important?

When you’re overweight or obese, your risk of developing a wide range of health conditions increases, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood sugar
  • Gallstones
  • Breathing problems
  • Obstructive sleep apnea

These conditions can lead to several diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, certain cancers, and heart disease. Carrying excess weight can also negatively impact your happiness and well-being.

At her wellness center, Dr. Desai is dedicated to reducing disease and regenerating overall health and vitality through personalized weight management treatments.

How does weight management work?

Dr. Desai’s medically supervised weight-loss program is designed to stabilize your weight by resetting your body’s metabolism.

Your personalized program includes one-on-one support, education, and counseling to help you reach your goals. This approach ensures that you’ll learn the secret to making healthy changes to your diet and lifestyle, and stick with them permanently.

Your nutrition coach helps you:

  • Identify what you are currently eating and drinking
  • Learn what you should be eating and drinking through a personalized daily food plan
  • Make better choices long term by understanding what you should be consuming

In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, Dr. Desai’s weight management program might include injectable doses of the hCG hormone. This hormone enables you to safely triple the amount of weight you’d normally lose per week with minimal hunger and without damaging your metabolism.

Under Dr. Desai’s guidance, you safely lose pounds and inches of excess fat, as opposed to muscle and structural fat which safely cushions and protects your organs and bones.

How does hCG help with weight loss?

The hCG hormone is a hormone that the body naturally produces during pregnancy. While it’s produced during pregnancy, hCG isn’t a sex hormone and can be administered to both men and women with the same dramatic weight loss results.

When used to promote weight loss, hCG triggers the brain to mobilize and rapidly release the hard to lose and diet-resistant fat. It allows you to reset the number of calories you can eat and to burn them more efficiently once you’ve reached your ideal weight.
