Medically supervised weight loss using safe, proven programs from Indulgence.

Even if your previous attempts at weight loss failed, Dr. Saba and his staff at Indulgence can help you discover a proven weight loss program that works.

Being obese or severely obese puts you at a higher risk for developing or worsening many serious medical conditions. There are over 30 obesity-related medical conditions that can damage your quality of life and even cause early death. Among them are arthritis, cancers, carpal tunnel syndrome, cardiovascular disease, gallbladder disease, gout, hypertension, infertility, liver disease, low back pain, obstetric and gynecologic complications, sleep apnea, stroke, type 2 diabetes and urinary stress incontinence.

The goal of our medical weight loss program is to help you reduce your weight and develop a plan to maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle by balancing food intake and physical activity. Fat reduction will make you healthier and decrease your chances of suffering serious medical conditions.

We require that our patients commit to weekly evaluations because we have found that weekly visits to the weight loss clinic are the key ingredient to the success of our program.

WHAT IS HCG?

HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that is naturally present in the body, but particularly produced in the placenta during pregnancy in high amounts.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

HCG has the effect of releasing abnormal fat stores that is typically built up in overweight patients. It can be potential stored fuel, but is locked away and not available for the body’s use. HCG unlocks that storage and releases the stored abnormal fat. Your body actually gets about 1200 calories per day from the stored fat!

WHO CAN USE HCG AND HOW LONG CAN IT BE USED?

HCG is safe and effective in both males and females. Our protocol is either 4 or 6 weeks of use depending on desired weight loss and physician recommendation. The body does become immune to the effects of HCG after about 6 weeks of use. After completion of the program, you will be able to easily convert to our regular weight loss program if you have more to lose. After 4-6 weeks (determined by our physician) we can review for another HCG program for you.

WILL I JUST REGAIN THE WEIGHT I HAVE LOST WITH HCG?

After the HCG program, you will find that your appetite has changed. This is due largely to the fact that your hypothalamus has made minor adjustments to your metabolism, which helps you feel fuller faster. The hypothalamus gland moderates the thyroid, adrenals, fat storage, and the metabolic rate. You will be more in control of your appetite and your body!

WHAT KIND OF A COMMITMENT DOES HCG TAKE?

There can be no deviance (cheating) on this plan. You must weigh every day and chart your weight. You must come into the office once a week to get your injections and weigh in. You must inject HCG every day. You must avoid all plant and animal based oils in your diet. NO Omega-3s or other supplements that contain oil. You must drink the recommended water amount as this helps eliminate toxins. Not drinking enough water will result in excess being withdrawn from the intestinal tract which could result in constipation.

HCG AND WOMEN’S ISSUES

PREGNANCY: HCG can dramatically increase your risk of becoming pregnant so be sure that your method of birth control is effective and reliable.
