This just in from Dr. Sneed’s wife Sharon: I just started the HCG weight loss program that we offer at the clinics two days ago! Yikes. I hope I can stay with it. I will keep you updated. Admittedly, if you look at my Facebook page, you will see a 400+ calorie pina colada in my hand from recently visited Playa del Carmen (great trip, but that’s another story). Having gained a few pounds at the “all-inclusive”, and with swimsuit weather on the way, I decided to kick it into high gear.
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and its a normal hormone for pregnant women. The mechanics are these. You give yourself a little painless shot every morning, stay away from calories until about noon and get two decent meals later on in the day. Personally, I change out the daily fruit for a glass of good Cabernet – it’s a cheat but there have to be some concessions in life!
I love this program – I’m not really hungry and it takes me throughout the day with marks to hit and keeps me from going crazy for carbs, and other silly things. The program we offer comes with state of the art supplements, weekly medical office visits, an initial EKG with lab tests and a physician appointment to make sure that your body is up for the challenge. Oh, and by the way, did I mention that we have an on-site nutritionist that can help you design a menu that is just perfect for you and your lifestyle. You get two visits with her.
Losing weight can help you manage your blood pressure, cholesterol ,triglyceride and blood sugar issues and a multitude of other medical maladies that you will want no part of int he coming years. Making an appointment could not be easier – just give us a call at (512) 443-WELL.
Stay tuned for more pictures and reports on my progress.
