No matter how much you work out, no matter how many abdominal crunches you do, it gets harder to keep that tiny waistline as you go through menopause. Menopause is associated with a natural decline in estrogen, causing muscle mass and strength to typically diminish while fat increases. The loss of muscle mass decreases the rate at which your body uses calories, which can make it more challenging to maintain a healthy weight. If you continue to eat as you always have and don’t increase your physical activity, you’re likely to gain weight. But, for many, we face the challenge of finding more time in our hectic schedules to increase our exercise routine.
Then, once you have been able to ramp up the exercise, a very common concern that my patients have when losing weight—is that they start to lose fat in their face and start to look too old! Many of us have experienced our friends saying to us “Don’t lose any more weight as you are starting to look old!” To solve this problem, we have introduced the HCG Diet to Skin MD and Beyond—where it only removes fat in your troubled areas—not your face!
How Does the HCG Diet Work?
Your body produces 3 types of fat; structural, normal reserve, and abnormal (deep) fat that is locked away, usually in the abdomen or hips. The HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) hormone is effective in removing the stubborn deeper fat that we all get frustrated with. This hormone injection allows the body to fuel us with our needed energy by pulling out calories stored in the deep fat layers. The most effective weight reduction comes when you follow a 500 calorie diet. I know what you are thinking; there is no way that I can survive on so few calories. Let me ease your mind, since the HCG is pulling the abnormal fat and making it readily available for the body to use as fuel, you do not need as many calories to satisfy you. I feel that the HCG Diet is a great kick start to a healthy lifestyle change; and you can obtain the results you are looking for in a safe and professional medical environment.
