Weight Management

At New Horizons Medical Clinic in The Woodlands / Spring, Texas, our weight management programs have become the most popular service we provide. Why? Because we deliver exceptional results!

Weight loss helps you feel better about yourself and your body. Patients from Houston and The Woodlands / Spring areas who are in our programs say they experience more energy, less joint pain, and, because of weight loss, are less likely to contract chronic, life-threatening diseases such as:

By achieving and maintaining a healthier weight, not only can you decrease the need for medications that treat these conditions, but you could even get rid of these conditions altogether!

We offer two unique weight management programs at our Woodlands / Spring wellness center:

Signature Diet

Our Signature weight management program, provides size reduction and weight loss. This program begins with a complete body composition test, vitals signs, lab testing, ekg if needed, consultation and physical exam with one of our providers to go over your medical history, lifestyle habits, such as nutrition and exercise.

We help you recognize what types of foods, medications, medical conditions that may be causing your weight increase and work towards permanent lifestyle changes with diet modification. We will discuss portion control and the significance of not skipping meals. For many patients, we prescribe an appetite suppressant like (Adipex, phentermine, etc) and a water pill, if necessary.

Most patients come in weekly for vitamin injections and monitoring. Every 30 days, providers will meet with you face to face for weight loss counseling to ensure you are doing well with prescribed medications and making progress towards a healthy weight goal. We also discuss labs results if necessary.

 

HCG Diet

On this diet, you can expect to lose up to one pound daily, depending on your starting weight, compliance, and metabolism. The more you weigh, the more you will lose.

You will receive a monthly hormone injection and follow an extremely strict diet of 500-700 calories. The hormone injections contain HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, which will prevent your muscle from breaking down while on this extreme diet.

HCG also helps:

  • Burn excess fat
  • Boost energy
  • Promote healthy weight loss
  • Stop hunger
  • Re-sculpt your body

We will provide you with detailed meal plans and a grocery shopping list. To experience success on the HCG diet program, it is mandatory that you follow the diet protocol explicitly.

As with the signature diet, the program begins with a consultation, blood work, and comprehensive weigh-in, including your weight, BMI, and other body measurements.  You will then follow up every 30 days with your provider. For patients who struggle with willpower, an appetite suppressant will make it possible for you to eat less. 

FDA hGC Disclaimer

"These weight reduction treatments include the use of hCG, a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control.  There is no substantial evidence that hCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort dissociated with calorie-restrictive diets."

Body Composition

Before starting any weight loss program, it’s important that you become familiar with the term Body Mass Index (BMI). Although fairly accurate, this method may overestimate the body fat of muscular athletes and underestimate the body fat of an individual with very little muscle weight.

Waist circumference is considered by many health professionals to be another important factor when evaluating fat distribution. Studies indicate that visceral fat found in the abdominal area around the waist, in excess of 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men, may also increase the likelihood of heart disease, diabetes, and other medical problems, even if your BMI is within normal range.

For both diets, we will perform a complete body composition analysis with the InBody 520. This machine will analyze your body composition, including lean body mass, body fat mass, dry lean mass, body mass index, percent body fat, amount of water inside and outside the cells, and much more. This tool helps you understand how your lifestyle, diet, and exercise regimen influence your body composition. It is instrumental in identifying what works and what doesn’t so you can reach your target weight loss goal.
