Why is weight loss important?

Your weight plays a role in your overall health. If you’re overweight or obese, losing even a small percentage of weight can significantly reduce your risk for high blood pressure (hypertension), arthritis, diabetes, and other chronic health issues. 

However, losing weight on your own can be difficult, especially as you get older and your body changes how it stores fat. If you have a thyroid disorder or other chronic condition, you might also struggle to lose weight without help.

McLean Cares offers a medically supervised weight loss program for people 12 and up to support your efforts and help you achieve a healthy body weight. 

What’s involved in a medically supervised weight loss program?

Your weight loss program focuses on changing your diet and behaviors to help you lose excess weight and keep it off for good. 

The McLean Cares weight loss program focuses on a human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) diet plan based on your blood type. HCG is a hormone the body produces during pregnancy, which is beneficial as a weight-loss tool. 

As part of your weight loss program, the team may inject hCG into your body to boost your metabolism. They also customize a low-calorie diet and daily exercise plan for you to follow to help you lose weight quickly and safely. 

In addition to the hCG diet, McLean Cares offers other weight loss resources, including:

  • Nutritional supplements
  • B3, B5, B6, and B12 injections
  • Lipotropic enzyme injections 
  • Protein bars and shakes
  • Intermittent fasting diet

In some cases, your provider might also recommend over-the-counter or prescription appetite suppressants to help you feel full after eating small meals. 

You can also expect to meet with a licensed nutritionist for one-on-one consultations, so you can learn how to make healthier food choices moving forward. 

How long does it take to see results from a weight loss program?

Since everyone loses weight at their own pace, there’s no standard answer for how long you need to follow your weight loss program. 

Your provider continues to monitor your progress and meets with you weekly for routine weigh-ins and injections. They can also adjust your program as you reach each of your weight loss goals. 

Even after you achieve a healthy body weight, McLean Cares can provide additional resources that help you keep it off in the long term. Throughout the program, you also learn how to continue changing your lifestyle and diet, so you can maintain your results for a lifetime.
