Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is an effective method for successfully achieving your weight loss goals. Dr. Cupid supervises your journey while you follow a customized treatment plan.

Dr. Cupid reviews your medical and family history to determine what’s holding you back from losing that extra weight. She works closely with you to review your weight loss goals and find the best method, or combination of methods, to achieve weight loss success.

What’s involved in personal coaching in weight loss?

Dr. Cupid initially begins your weight loss journey by discussing your lifestyle habits and food choices. She creates a customized plan that outlines the changes to your lifestyle and diet required to optimize your success in losing weight.

Throughout your program, Dr. Cupid and her staff offer compassionate support and guidance to ensure the changes you make produce the desired results. Their recommendations are likely to include one or more of the following:

  • Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Drink a sufficient amount of water
  • Incorporate more physical activity into your day
  • Avoid processed and junk foods

Dr. Cupid works closely with you to create a meal plan that encourages weight loss and can modify your program as you continue to achieve milestones.

What is the HCG weight loss program?

Several areas of your health are influenced by HGC (human chorionic gonadotropin hormone). The hormone is present in very high levels early in pregnancy, and increased levels may indicate types of cancer, including ovarian and testicular cancer.

HCG weight loss involves a low-calorie daily diet where you consume approximately 500 calories per day. Dr. Cupid also administers injections of the HCG hormone to boost your metabolism to help you lose fat without feeling constantly hungry.

Throughout the HCG program, you receive Dr. Cupid’s support and guidance to ensure you’re receiving the desired results. She monitors your overall health to keep you on track with losing weight quickly and safely.
