Weight Loss Q & A

Why should I consider weight loss?

Weight loss does a lot more than just improve your appearance and self-confidence. By achieving a healthy body weight, you can also prevent or reduce your risk factors for a variety of chronic health conditions and complications including:

  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure

If you’re finding it difficult to lose weight, a medically supervised weight loss program may be the safest and most effective way to achieve your goals.

What weight loss services are available?

To help you lose weight effectively and maintain a healthy weight for the long-term, Dr. Ausi carefully supervises each step of your weight loss program.

Initially, Dr. Ausi designs a treatment plan based on your current weight and health. He tailors each weight loss program specific to your needs to ensure maximum results. As part of your weight loss plan, you may benefit from one or more of the following services:

  • Diet evaluation
  • In-office counseling
  • Goal-setting strategies

For many, Dr. Ausi may recommend following an human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) diet. HCG is a hormone naturally found in your body and present in very high levels in the early stages of pregnancy.

In 1954, Albert Simeons, a British doctor, discovered the benefits of HCG for weight loss. Dr. Ausi provides services and resources to help you incorporate this diet into your lifestyle. The plan involves following a very low-calorie, low-fat diet, where you consume around 500 calories a day.

In addition to dietary modifications, Dr. Ausi also provides injections of the HCG hormone to increase the efficiency of your weight loss.

How does the HCG diet help you lose weight?

In addition to helping an embryo develop, HCG can also have a positive impact on your metabolism, helping you lose larger amounts of fat without feeling hungry.

Dr. Ausi carefully supervises your progress on the diet for your health and safety and works closely with you on your journey to achieving an ideal body weight. Typically, there are three phases of the HCG diet that boost your fat-burning capability, first by eating high-calorie foods for two days followed by 3-6 weeks of the low-calorie diet.

Once you reach your goal weight, Dr. Ausi continues to provide guidance for the maintenance phase as you slowly increase your food intake and avoid eating sugars and starches.
