Weight Loss Programs Q&A

What are the benefits of medically-supervised weight loss?

By getting Dr. Jackson’s guidance and support on your weight loss journey, you may have more success than going it alone. She creates a custom plan that considers your lifestyle and health needs to determine which weight loss options works best for you.

Losing weight is important for your overall health and wellness. Maintaining a healthy body weight also decreases your risk for developing preventable diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

In addition to a special diet, Dr. Jackson can also recommend other weight loss options to help you achieve success, such as physical activities to keep you fit.

Medically-supervised weight loss programs also ensure you are losing weight safely. Dr. Jackson monitors your overall health throughout the program to make sure the diet and physical activities are right for you. She can even recommend dietary supplements to enhance your nutrition.

What weight loss options are available?

Dr. Jackson offers a variety of weight loss resources to help you lose weight. These options include custom diets, the HCG diet, prescription medications, and injectable hormone therapy, like semaglutide.

To create a custom weight loss program designed to meet your needs, Dr. Jackson reviews your medical history and assesses your current medical status to determine the best program for you.

What is the HCG diet?

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone present in very high levels early in pregnancy, and has been found to be effective with weight loss. The popular HCG diet can help you lose 1-2 pounds every day by following the plan Dr. Jackson develops specifically for you.

This treatment involves a very low-calorie diet where you consume about 500 calories a day and receive routine injections of the HCG hormone, boosting your metabolism and helping you eliminate fat without feeling hungry or losing muscle mass. Your new diet typically requires each meal to have a lean protein, vegetable, slice of bread, and piece of fruit. You should also drink a lot of water to stay hydrated.
