Austin Weight Loss
Due to biochemical uniqueness, there is not one Austin weight loss program that is perfect for everyone. Many factors inhibit the body’s ability to lose weight and keep it off, even when you think you are eating healthy and exercising. Genetics, food sensitivities, and environmental factors such as stress, toxic burden, and poor food choices influence the ability to lose and maintain weight loss.
Weight management is more than just a number on a scale. The most successful approaches integrate an individual’s physical, psychological, and emotional health to achieve a healthy weight and positive body image. Stop losing and gaining the same 10, 20, 30 pounds. It’s time to develop a plan that is customized to your individual needs.
You’ll work closely with our doctors and nutritionists using an integrative weight management style to design a long-term, whole-body solution based on your nutritional needs, blood work, activity level, and lifestyle.
Weight loss is a billion dollar industry in America with everyone trying to get you to buy their miracle cure to help you lose weight. We offer several Austin weight loss programs at Oubre Medical, but we primarily focus on healthy lifestyle transformations. It turns out, if you eat high-quality organic foods, move regularly, optimize vitamins, balance hormones, and reduce stress, the fat falls off naturally! Below, you can look through our weight loss programs and decide the best one for you. When you meet with the healthcare provider or nutritionist, they can help guide you to a weight loss program that fits you the best.
What programs do you offer for weight loss in Austin?
We offer several different Austin weight loss programs at our office, and you can choose the one that fits your needs and lifestyle.
The 10 and 28-day detox plans are an excellent way to start any weight loss program. Toxins are circulating in our bloodstream and stored in our fat tissues. If you begin a weight loss plan before detoxification, you are likely to be unsuccessful at weight loss, feel worse while losing weight, or rebound with weight gain after completion.
The FirstLine Therapy program is the preferred option for losing weight, reversing metabolic syndrome, and decreasing inflammation. FirstLine Therapy usually begins with a 10-day detox, then leads directly into a healthy lifestyle transformation. You will be eating a Mediterranean food plan, and you will be given resources to help you with your food planning. You will be drinking Medical Food protein shakes twice daily. These protein shakes are loaded with phytonutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins that calm inflammatory biochemical pathways. The medical food shakes are clinically proven to reverse metabolic syndrome faster than Mediterranean diet alone. The FirstLine Therapy program includes an easy-to-follow guide, recipes, and menu plans.
The Ketogenic Diet, or Healthy Transformation Weight Loss Plan, is a very low carbohydrate diet that pushes the body into “ketogenesis” or fat-burning mode. Your body requires carbohydrates (sugars) for its daily energy processes. If you do not consume carbohydrates, your body must generate these carbohydrates in order to continue functioning. As it turns out, your body is not efficient at creating its own carbohydrates, so it burns extra energy.
The HCG Diet offers the dieter immediate success! It is an aggressive Austin weight loss program that spans 30 – 40 days and most people should expect to lose approximately a half of a pound per day during this 40-day program. The HCG Diet involves injecting the HCG hormone every day, eating a very restrictive food plan, and taking vitamins (shots and pills).
What is an MIC Shot?
The MIC Shot is an adjunct to any weight loss program. The MIC Shot is a combination of Methionine, Inositol, Choline, and B Complex Vitamins (B12, B6, B1). These vitamins enhance energy levels and fat mobilization. Mobilization of fat is important since your body cannot burn fat unless the fat cells actually release fat molecules into the bloodstream. Once fat is circulating in the bloodstream, it is accessible by muscle cells, liver cells, and other tissue to be broken down and used as energy. If fat is not released from its stores, your body will break down muscle tissue instead. MIC shots are a valuable addition to any weight loss regimen, and they can be administered weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on your schedule. The MIC Shots are supplemental to weight loss, and the shots can be administered before, during, and after diet programs.
How long can I continue the Austin weight loss program?
Each program has its limitations, and your healthcare provider will be able to answer this question during your consultation. The HCG Diet Program is an aggressive weight loss program, and it is not safe to continue long term. The HCG Diet Program can be repeated, but you will need to discuss it with your healthcare provider.
Why is physician supervision for weight loss important?
The physician consultation helps identify the program that will work the best for you, your genes, and your lab work. Moreover, unexpected events can occur while undergoing medication for weight loss; therefore, it is important to be completely evaluated before beginning any medication for weight loss. Many of the appetite suppressants affect the cardiovascular system, and they can raise blood pressure, cause fast heart rates, and uncover unknown heart conditions.
Are weight loss programs covered under insurance?
No, in Austin, weight loss programs are not currently covered by insurance.
