HCG Diet and HCG Weight Loss Programs for Men
Not only can Melinda Silva, M.D. treat women with the HCG Diet, but she can also customize a treatment plan that greatly benefits men too! Because the HCG Diet works so well in regulating hormones within the body, it can help to raise testosterone levels.
Another great benefit of the HCG Diet is that men who wish to maintain their lean muscle do not experience any muscle atrophy or degeneration while dieting. This is because the HCG Diet only focuses on burning the fat stores within the body away.
Men suffering from obesity with a body mass index (BMI) score of 30 or higher who attempt other diets find that not only do they lose some fat in places that they have absolutely no control over, they also end up losing lean muscle as the body attempts to make up for its lost calories. This often times leaves the patient looking slightly disproportional and the “stubborn fat” that the body houses in the abdominal area, waist and hips, upper legs, chest, back and arms remains.
Although human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that targets the stubborn fat stores around the body, and is found naturally within the body. There are no common side effects related to hormone imbalance with the HCG Diet, it works more as a means of increasing metabolic productivity. By locating these “stubborn fat” stores within the body, the HCG Diet allows clients to utilize this reserve energy and supply themselves with a sufficient daily caloric intake, even while on a low-calorie HCG Diet plan.
Without the use of the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) hormone, a low calorie diet can create health problems, and should never be done without the supervision of a medical professional. The modifications made to each client’s diet by Doctor Silva supply the body with only the essential vitamins and nutrients that the body needs to maintain a healthy state. The rest of the needed Calories are derived from the fat already within the body alone.
Other diets tend to eat away at the muscles and other parts of the body, men suffering from obesity who have attempted exercise as a form of weight loss usually over-exhaust themselves and can even suffer more from potential injury. On the HCG Diet, weight-training and excessive forms of exercise are not required to maintain an athletic build, and tone musculature. It is heavily advised that those who choose to lose weight with HCG only perform mild forms of exercise if desired, however, the HCG Diet will help retain lean muscle without irregular degeneration of tissues and work only on proportionally burning away the excess “stubborn fat” found within the hard-to-reach areas.
Increased Energy and Testosterone
As the HCG Diet begins to shed the excess fat and weight from its user, the body is able to properly metabolize blood within the sugar. This improves the body’s metabolism, supplying patients with more energy, which in turn, also allows the body to more effectively process other nutrients and re-stabilize its hormone levels. This synergistic, self-supported cycle benefits itself and improves with proper dieting and nutrition. Because fat is being burned away, estrogen production decreases in the body of men. This helps to normalize testosterone (male hormone) levels, which directly improves muscle mass, bone density, and also has a positive effect on the heart, circulatory system, as well as brain and cognitive functioning.
Too much fat in the body raises cholesterol levels in the body. As adipose (fat) tissue lead to lipid (fat cells and molecules) found in the blood stream, unhealthy levels of Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL or “bad” cholesterol) as well as a decrease in High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL or “good” cholesterol) eventually lead to many other cardiovascular and circulatory problems such as heart conditions, blood pressure, and blood-glucose levels.
Healthier Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Functioning
The HCG Diet helps to stabilize and bring the digestive system back to a normal and healthy state. Patients suffering from obesity tend to eat excessively which over-works the organs and tissues involved in the digestive process. This oftentimes leads to chronic diseases like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohn’s Disease, as well as poor hygiene. The HCG Diet gives the gastro-intestinal tract a window to repair itself and rest. Consultation with Melinda Silva, M.D., she will proved the most effective dieting protocol to facilitate this process, as well as the restoration of a healthy bacterial flora within the GI. The healthy bacteria found within the digestive system is also directly linked to the body’s metabolic activity and ability to absorb and provide clients adequate nutrients and vitamins.
Decreased Risk of Stroke
As the HCG Diet begins to burn the excess “stubborn fat” away, the abnormal lipids found within the blood and circulatory system begins to decline as well. If too much fat enters into the bloodstream, clotting and blockages occur constricting the flow of blood. As blood flow decreases, so does the amount of oxygen that circulates to important areas of the body such as the heart and brain. Losing weight and maintaining a healthy metabolism will help to ensure that the body is being supplied with adequate amounts of vital oxygen, and decrease one’s risk for stroke and other life-threatening conditions.
Improved Cardiovascular Health
Losing weight on the HCG Diet also reduces your risk for atherosclerosis, a condition where the arteries begin to harden due to abnormal blood fats. Obesity not only causes the heart to have to work harder to supply the whole body with oxygen and blood, it also causes minute tears and scarring within the inner linings of the circulatory system. This compounds the build-up of plaque leading to Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and the chances of heart attack and heart failure.
Decreased Blood Pressure
As blood begins to flow more freely with the removal of fat obstructing the blood stream, the heart does not have to work as hard to pump blood. This lowers blood pressure as the vital arteries begin to widen and lessens your risk for CHD, cardiovascular complications, stroke, and even death. Low blood pressure is directly correlated with longevity and the HCG Diet can help.
Treatment and Prevention of Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
Men who suffer from obesity are much more likely to develop ED compared to men who maintain a healthy weight. One component of healthy penile functionality is low blood pressure and is attributed to the maintenance of a healthy weight and improved cardiovascular health. Losing weight on the HCG Diet greatly improves erectile dysfunction, especially for men who suffer from obesity and can restore a healthy sex life.
Higher Fertility Levels
Treating obesity with the HCG Diet not only improves the sex lives of men, it has also been linked to increasing sperm count as well as sperm motility. These two components are attributing factors towards infertility in men. Consult Dr. Silva to learn more about how your sex life can improve with the HCF Diet
Treatment and Prevention of Kidney Stones
As the body’s metabolic functioning declines with the increase in weight, obese men become much more susceptible to developing kidney stones. This is an incredibly painful condition that can eventually lead to renal failure. Losing weight is important not just aesthetically, but also for the functioning of the vital organs such as the kidney, liver, gallbladder, and heart
Reduced Chances of Prostate Enlargement and Cancer
Because fat produces estrogen and obesity alters the metabolism and absorption of sex hormones, studies are beginning to show a strong correlation between the development of prostate cancer and one’s BMI. Maintaining a healthy hormonal balance is essential in regulating the prostate as men who suffer from obesity have a higher propensity for prostate enlargement and cancer.
Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)
Recent studies have shown a connection between obesity and the onset of Alzheimer’s, especially in adult patients. Referred to as “Type III Diabetes”, AD can be avoided by regulating your weight and diet. Consult Dr. Silva to learn more about the aging process and how the HCG Diet can help you live a longer, and healthier life.
These are but a few of the ways in which the HCG Diet can greatly improve your quality of life, health, and overall wellbeing. As one of your greatest tools in preventative care, losing weight on the HCG Diet has physiological, as well as psycho-emotional benefits.
