Weight Loss Programs Q & A

Why do I struggle with weight loss?

You may have trouble losing weight for a number of reasons. For many, the changes in your body that occur while growing older cause you to gain weight in unexpected places. These changes often relate to hormone levels. Your body slows down production of certain hormones, changing the way your body stores fat.

Other reasons you may find it hard to lose weight include:

  • Stress
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Lack of exercise
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Hormone imbalance

Underlying medical conditions can also create issues with weight loss, especially if a disability makes it difficult for you to stay active.

What options for weight loss are available?

Initially, Dr. Plateroti may recommend certain dietary and lifestyle changes to help you reset your body and make weight loss possible.

If you need additional help losing stubborn fat, Dr. Plateroti can determine the root cause of your weight loss issues and treat it accordingly. If you can’t lose weight due to a hormone imbalance or thyroid disorder, hormone replacement therapy may be an ideal solution.

Dr. Plateroti also provides guidance and support for different diet plans, including the HCG diet and detox plans. He can determine if these diet options are right for you based on your medical history and specific health needs.

How does the HCG diet work?

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone found in the body in very high levels at the early stages of pregnancy. It’s the hormone detectable in at-home pregnancy tests and can be effective in treating infertility in both women and men.

The HCG hormone has also been successful as part of a diet regimen, known as the HCG diet, which involves restricting calories to 500-700 a day and receiving daily, in home injections of the HCG hormone. Dr. Plateroti’s HCG program is the only diet that customizes HCG to your individual needs.

The goal of using HCG in weight loss is to speed up your metabolism to help you lose larger amounts of weight at a time without the side effects of feeling hungry. Dr. Plateroti carefully monitors your weight loss plan to ensure you stay in good health and are on track to meet your weight loss goals.
