Weight Loss Q & A

What weight-loss plan can help me?

Dr. Powell knows how hard it is to find a diet that really works. He’s searched high and low and found a diet plan that helps you lose weight quickly and safely without feeling hungry or deprived with the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) diet.

HCG is a natural hormone women produce during pregnancy that also helps promote weight loss. Dr. Powell focused much of his continuing education on the role hormones play in the body and offers you the most up-to-date treatments to help optimize your levels for better health and assistance with weight loss.

How does the HCG diet work?

The HCG diet combines a low-calorie diet plan with hormonal treatments that help keep hunger under control. Diets help you lose weight by creating a negative calorie balance so you’re consuming fewer calories than your body burns. The problem with most of these reduced-calorie diets is that they don’t take your hunger or feelings of deprivation into consideration.

With the HCG diet, Dr. Powell provides HCG injections to help control your hunger so you don’t feel deprived. These hormonal injections not only keep hunger and cravings at bay while you lose the weight, but also help keep your emotions steady and energy levels up.

What can I expect from the weight-loss plan?

Dr. Powell’s weight-loss plan is a very comprehensive 33-day program. During your first visit, Dr. Powell spends an hour with you going over the plan and conducting a comprehensive physical examination to ensure the HCG diet makes the best choice to help you drop your unwanted pounds. If needed, Dr. Powell runs bloodwork to further assess your health.

Then, Dr. Powell has you come to the office each week to monitor your progress and help you navigate through any hurdles you face following the HCG plan. During your weekly check-ins, Dr. Powell provides you with B12/MIC injections to assist in fat burning and help keep your energy levels up. He also provides you with medical-grade HCG injections, which you give to yourself at home.
