Weight Loss Q & A

Why do I need blood tests before starting my weight loss program?

The doctors at SANTÉ Aesthetics and Wellness start your program by reviewing your medical history and performing a thorough physical exam. Their goal is to determine if you have underlying health problems that may contribute to your weight or that should be considered when planning your weight loss program.

Blood work is essential to evaluate your overall health and to test for levels of hormones and nutrients. Many patients who are overweight have nutrient deficiencies, which can slow down their metabolism and interfere with weight loss.

Hormone levels are especially important because certain hormones directly impact your ability to lose weight. Hormone imbalances can interfere with fat burning, promote fat storage, and make you feel hungry.

What weight loss services might I receive?

The team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness uses a holistic approach to weight loss, considering all aspects of your emotional and physical health, diet, and exercise as they work with you to create a weight loss plan.

These are a few examples of the specialized services available at SANTÉ:

Whole food diet

You’ll receive information about all the diet basics, from setting calorie goals and determining food intake, to planning a healthy diet. However, they go a step further by teaching about a whole food diet. You don’t need to buy prepared meals or meal supplements. Instead, you’ll learn how to buy nutrient-rich foods and prepare them at home.

Accelerated fat-burning phase

To get you started on the road to weight loss success, the team at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness may include an effective fat-burning phase in your weight loss plan. One program they may recommend to kick-off your weight loss is the hCG diet.

What is the hCG diet?

Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, can help you quickly lose a significant amount of weight. The hCG diet combines a very low-calorie diet with injections of hCG. Severely reducing calories normally triggers your body to slow your metabolism and store fat, which blocks your weight loss.

However, hCG triggers fat burning despite reducing calories. The combination of fat burning and low calories helps you lose more weight. As an added benefit, the boost in fat burning contributes calories that maintain your energy and help diminish hunger.

Patients following an hCG diet lose an average of one to two pounds daily, while they learn eating habits that will help them maintain the loss.
