Thrive Health Solutions offers a current modern day, medical HCG weight loss program using modern medicine, cutting edge pharmaceuticals and a modern whole food nutrition plan (our plan is NOT the Dr. Simeons 500 calorie diet), that can help you lose weight quickly and safely. Upon qualification into the program, a Thrive Health Solutions doctor will prescribe and administer the Thrive HCG Weight Loss Therapy.
What Is HCG?
HCG is a naturally occurring glycoprotein hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. HCG is naturally produced by the body but when supplemented, is a highly effective weight loss and metabolic reset method.
How Does It Work?
Our proprietary pharmaceutical HCG medication works with your hypothalamus gland to release adipose fat stored in “problem areas” (like your thighs and abdomen) so that your body can use it for energy.
Basically, there are three types of fat in your body:
1. Structural fat:
This fat can be found in-between vital organs giving
protection for your body. This fat is not disturbed when you exercise.
2. Normal fat:
This is the fat your body uses to burn when your nutritional
intake (calories, etc.) is less than what your body demands.
3. Abnormal (adipose) fat:
This is the stuff we all despise. It’s the excessive
fat found throughout our bodies that causes obesity. Unfortunately, the body
doesn’t typically burn abnormal fat because it isn’t “programmed” to do so.
HCG Hormone therapy “releases” abnormal fat deposits and makes it available for the body to consume (burn). In other words, reprogramming your body (resetting your metabolism) to burn the fat we all dislike. The results – effective and efficient weight loss!
The Diet/ Meal Plan: (OUR PLAN IS NOT A 500 CALORIE DIET)
During the program caloric intake is restricted to 800-1,200 calories. Normally a person’s body would go into “starvation mode” on only 800-1,200 calories a day and begin burning muscle, however, because the medication releases “abnormal fat” for use by the body, lean muscle, structural fat and critical vitamins and minerals are preserved.
Although it is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days, by the end of the first week your hypothalamus will adjust your metabolic rate so that you will feel as if you are stuffing yourself to reach your 800-1,200 calories per day!
Maximizing the Benefits
The Thrive Medical HCG program does require discipline. Sticking to the diet is essential. Drinking enough water (1/2 gallon minimum daily) is also important to ensure that your body is flushing the burnt fat away.
The weight loss program can be used in conjunction with an appetite suppressant, and your Thrive Health Solutions doctor will determine if this is right for you. This therapy is appropriate for anyone, men and women, who have at least 12 pounds to lose. It is not for women who are nursing or pregnant or type I diabetics.
Possible Side Effects
You may experience some light headaches during the first week of the program, which can be easily treated with aspirin. Others may also experience leg cramping, which can be treated with potassium supplements. All side effects experienced by the patient should be reviewed by our Thrive Health Solutions doctor.
On the flip side, the medications may also create positive side effects such as increased energy, clearer thought processes, and improved sleep.
Thrive Health Solutions Patients on the Thrive HCG medical weight loss program lose between 1/2 lbs.- 1 lbs. or more per day. During a 30-day treatment, patients can expect to lose, on average, about 20-25 lbs.*
