Metabolic Weight Loss
What is metabolic weight loss?
Metabolic weight loss is a technique that works with the body, rather than against it, to stimulate fat burning. While other diets tend to cut the body’s source of energy, forcing it to burn fat and muscle tissue, metabolic weight loss is focused on stimulating fat burning while still providing enough energy to the body to maintain muscle mass.
SCIMEDICA Health Group offers a metabolic weight loss program that specifically targets stored fat cells and allows the body to shed excess weight. Our program maximizes your metabolism’s ability to burn fat and become a healthier version of yourself and to maintain your weight loss over time.
Why is the metabolic weight loss program used?
Some common reasons to use SCIMEDICA’s metabolic weight program include:
- Lose weight and improve physical condition
- Prevent weight-related health problems, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes
- Manage current weight
- Unable to obtain satisfactory results from multiple other weight loss methods
- Unable to maintain weight loss results from another program
What does metabolic weight loss involve?
The metabolic weight loss program at SCIMEDICA works with your body to burn excess fat reserves found in the body. In a normal patient, the body stores fat in two types of fat storage areas—structural fat and normal fat reserves. In overweight and obese patients, additional fat storage areas are found. These secondary, abnormal fat reserves are stored by the body as a survival mechanism, making them very difficult to burn.
SCIMEDICA’s metabolic weight loss program is designed to stimulate the hypothalamus (the gland that regulates the thyroid, metabolic rate, and fat storage) through hormone injections, triggering the body to release these secondary fat reserves.
Patients can expect to lose up to a pound a day with SCIMEDICA’s metabolic weight loss program. Our program is physician monitored, and tailored to suit your personal needs. One of our naturopathic doctors will walk you through the weight loss process during your in-office consultation.
