What is the Fast Start Weight Loss Program?

By January 9, 2020No Comments

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution to finally lose the extra pounds that have been following you around over the years? At YM, your health is the most important thing to us. We want you to look and feel your very best, and that includes optimizing your weight. That’s why we created the Fast Start Weight Loss Program, a unique integrative, custom approach that tackles weight loss from all angles.


Why “Eat Less, Move More” isn’t Enough

Modern medicine will tell you the same advice again and again in regards to losing weight. Eat less and move more. Calories-in, calories-out. While this is important advice and true in many circumstances, weight loss can be so much more complicated than that.

If like many, you have been dieting and exercising on and off for years with little success, you already know that.

With our new Fast Start Weight Loss program, we will work with you directly to tailor your plan. We’ll apply our expertise in the connection between fat gain and hormones to your case, to help you to achieve your weight and health goals.


Medical Weight Loss Customized to Your Needs

Joining a Medical Weight Loss program can help you unlock your body’s innate ability to get rid of excess fat. The difference is clear – by testing for underlying hormonal imbalances which may be the reason for your stubborn body fat, we’re actually treating the root cause of the issue. Every participant is provided with a unique care plan. Custom prescriptions help supercharge your journey because no two people are exactly alike.


What are the Components of YM’s Fast Start Weight Loss Program?

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Injections

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Injections

You may have heard of HCG, it is a hormone that women begin to produce naturally during pregnancy.


The Benefits of Taking HCG

When we take this hormone and inject it daily, it signals to your brain to mobilize fat stores. Doing this helps to trick your Hypothalamus, which is the hunger center of your body responsible for food cravings.

This means that food cravings are reduced, and fat stores start to be used more for energy – which is a fantastic way to fast-start your weight loss!


Human Growth Hormone Optimization

When your natural Growth Hormone (HGH) levels are low, it affects your energy levels and body composition significantly. Typically with an increase in abdominal fat and a decrease in muscle mass. This means your capacity and energy for exercise are diminished. Our low HGH patients often have difficulty with weight control.


Ipamorelin/Sermorelin Peptides

Our Fast Start Weight Loss program offers a customized dose of Growth Hormone peptides based on your unique needs. We get great results with what we call an Ipamorelin/Sermorelin stack.

Ipamorelin increases growth hormone secretion, whereas Sermorelin helps to optimize growth hormone levels by stimulating the body’s pituitary gland while you sleep. Together they help to maximize the body’s natural cycle of growth hormone.


The Benefits of Optimizing Your HGH Levels

Optimizing your HGH levels helps to increase lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, and increase energy levels. There are many more benefits as well which are not related to weight loss, such as helping to strengthen joints and connective tissue, improving cognitive acuity, and boosting the libido and the immune system.


Fat Burning Injections

Now that your body fat has been mobilized, we include another injection called Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC). MIC helps you use that fat for energy and get it out of your body. MIC is administered weekly and can be self-administered. Or, if that is not something that you are interested in doing yourself, you can schedule an appointment with us weekly and we would be more than happy to do it for you.


How Does MIC Help to Burn Fat?

MIC is a lipotropic formula, ie it is made up of compounds that help to catalyse the breakdown of fat. The primary compounds in the formula are methionine, inositol and choline. These work together to metabolize fat cells and to assist your body in the elimination of stored fat deposits that can be found in your liver and throughout the rest of your body.


Appetite Suppressant

Depending on your weight loss and lifestyle needs, we may also offer an appetite suppressant. This is not meant to stop you from eating a healthy diet – If you are starving all of the time you will not have much success. However, experiencing a stronger hunger drive is to be expected when exercising more and trying to lose weight.


Phentermine Tablets

We can prescribe a small dose of Phentermine daily. This medication helps suppress your appetite and increase the feeling of fullness after a meal. This can be very helpful in aiding you to decrease or maintain your caloric intake during the natural hunger increase. The aim is to avoid heightened hunger derailing your efforts at the start. We expect this to be a sustainable lifestyle change for you, so the appetite suppressant is used judiciously.


Appetite Suppressants are Not for Everyone

Depending on any health issues you may currently have, such as high blood pressure, this part of the program may not be right for you. As with all weight loss medications, it is important to be under the supervision of your medical weight loss team when taking an appetite suppressant.


Nutrition Recommendations

For weight loss to be sustainable it is important to maintain a healthy diet. This not only gives you control over your caloric intake, but also helps to address any underlying hormonal imbalances. Staying well nourished is very important and we understand that sometimes it can be hard to know what to eat.


Weight Loss Eating Plan

You will receive a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid in accordance with your specific plan. To get you started, we provide a sample menu and teach you some strategies that will help you be successful.


Weekly Weigh-ins

Accountability is key! So we have made it very simple for you to touch base regularly and stay on track. All you need to do is weigh yourself weekly at home and text us with your new weight to track.
