You may think of weight mostly in terms of how you look — how your clothes fit, wearing a bathing suit, or how others perceive you. And obesity certainly can impact those aspects of your life. However, being overweight means you’re also increasing the chances of developing a chronic health condition.

The health risks associated with being overweight are very real. Obesity has been linked to numerous health conditions, many of which can be life-threatening. Carrying too much weight increases your risk of the following conditions, among others:

Being overweight can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable, and it presents real dangers to your health. Losing weight may lead to improved self-esteem as well as measurable health improvements.

An integrated approach

A common problem with weight loss, one that you may have experienced yourself, is that it can be very difficult to know what to do. There are so many different diet plans, many of them with wildly different parameters. Should you follow the keto diet or become vegan?

The benefit of working with Optimum Physicians Healthcare is the guidance from an experienced professional who considers the whole picture of your health rather than just weight loss. If you have particular concerns, our team can address those while providing you with concrete feedback and offering useful advice.

The HCG diet

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone, and the diet plan known as the HCG diet has been around for many years. The benefit of the HCG diet is that it can help balance your hormones as you get your weight under control.

The diet is medically supervised, and in the beginning, the food you eat is strictly controlled. For the first few weeks, you consume between 500 and 800 calories per day. You also receive injections of HCG to help control your appetite. This first phase is challenging, but at Optimum Physicians Healthcare, you have the advantage of working with a supportive team.

The importance of medical supervision

The extreme calorie restriction of the first weeks of the HCG diet makes having medical supervision crucial. Having a professional provide you with feedback and advice ensures that your nutritional needs are being met, even as you lose weight quickly.

Additionally, as you increase calories, you have the benefit of your Optimum Physicians Healthcare provider helping you make healthy choices. This keeps you from falling into old habits and patterns and regaining the weight.

Fast, and lasting, weight loss

You lose weight quickly on the HCG diet. Even better, it stays lost. The injections combined with rapid weight loss reset your body’s metabolism. Properly functioning metabolism, along with healthy choices regarding nutrition and exercise, help you keep the weight off for years to come.


Your life and your body are unique, and your weight loss plan should be, too. Personalized attention and a clear focus on making weight loss part of your integrated health plan are hallmarks of the care provided at Optimum Physicians Healthcare.
