Medical Weight Loss Programs in Calgary
Effective Weight Loss Programs
Tired of weight loss programs that just don’t work? We’d like to introduce you to a weight loss program that involves no surgery, no starving, no outrageous exercise programs, and no packaged meals. You won’t feel tired, hungry or irritable as with most diets.
The Glenmore Healthcare Clean Start Weight Loss® diet is a medically managed program. It involves both weight loss and detoxification. The use of hormones in the treatment of obesity was first discovered by the late British physician, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons.
Traditional Weight Loss Programs
When a person goes on a normal diet, the portion of the brain (called the hypothalamus) that controls appetite, hormones and many other bodily functions sends a message to get energy and nutrients from wherever it can, i.e. “good” fat, (muscle), and “bad” fat (usually in the hip, butt, waist area).
Unfortunately, the “bad” areas tend to be the fat that disappears last.
The Yo-Yo Effect
Common sense tells us that we gain weight by eating too much food. So, we simply eat less (or much less) in order to lose weight faster. As those experienced with the Yo-Yo dieting trap know, if they eat a low amount of calories they will lose weight; however, they also know that as soon as they come off their diet the weight comes back and sometimes they gain even more weight. The next time they diet, weight loss becomes more difficult.
The human body is not designed to survive on such a low calorie diet. When a person tries to lose weight quickly by eating minimally, the body reacts by entering a “starvation” sequence, burning fewer calories to protect fat stores.
The body will burn its most readily available fuel source first. Unfortunately, when using a starvation diet to achieve fast weight loss, the body burns muscle first, which is most easily converted into glucose. And the result can be that people who try to lose weight by eating a low calorie diet end up with a higher body fat ratio than before they started the diet because their muscle has been consumed and replaced with fat.
How the Diet is a Game Changer
When a man or woman goes on the diet, the hypothalamus sends a message to go after the “bad” fat first. This message is thought to work through a gut hormone called leptin, which is associated with fat deposition and hunger.
The hormone prevents the body’s starvation response from being triggered, keeping lean muscle tissue and the fat that protects our vital organs intact.
It helps mobilize fat stores to be used as fuel by the body. In other words, your body begins feeding itself fat stores to make up for a decrease in calories, resulting in rapid weight loss.
Feel Good and Look Great
And because the body’s adipose fat stores are located in the thighs, hips, stomach, Glenmore Healthcare’s Clean Start diet produces a noticeable change to the shape of the body instead of simply the number on the scale. And the use of the hormone reduces the cravings, headaches, and fatigue normally associated with low calorie diets.
