Weight Loss Q & A

Why is maintaining a healthy weight important?

Nearly 40% of Americans are obese and have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater. BMI is a measure of body fat in relation to your height and weight and is used as a general guideline to determine a healthy weight range.

If you have a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9, you are at a healthy weight. If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9, you are overweight. Obesity is defined as having a BMI of 30 or higher.

Being overweight or obese significantly increases your risk of developing a number of serious health conditions. Common complications of being overweight or obese include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Osteoarthritis

Shedding extra weight makes a big difference in your health, reducing your risk of developing long-term health conditions. But losing weight isn’t easy. If you’ve tried to lose weight in the past without success, it’s time to find out what medically supervised weight loss can do for you.

How can Tru-Male Medical help me lose weight?

Losing weight and keeping it off long-term requires commitment and knowledge. At Tru-Male Medical, Dr. Marshall gives men personalized weight-loss plans and the accountability needed to see real results. 

Your personalized weight-management plan includes nutrition and diet, fitness, behavioral counseling, medication, and more. Maintaining a healthy diet paired with regular exercise are two of the most important components of long-lasting weight loss. 

The team at Tru-Male Medical uses DNA testing to identify your metabolic code and customize a diet plan to meet your nutritional needs and weight-loss goals. They also help you establish an effective, personalized fitness routine for your body to help you achieve your desired look. 

Behavioral changes, like learning stress management techniques and prioritizing sleep, can also aid in your weight-loss journey. For complete guidance and accountability with weight loss, start working with Dr. Marshall.

What is hCG?

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a naturally occurring hormone that helps you lose weight when combined with diet and exercise. 

Tru-Male Medical offers self-injectable hCG shots to supplement weight loss. The shots are typically injected into your thigh, and the number of treatments the doctor recommends varies depending on your individual needs. 

For best results, hCG shots are used in conjunction with the hCG diet, a diet that typically limits your food intake to between 500 and 800 calories per day. 

The hCG weight-loss plan is not right for everyone, and it’s important to talk with your doctor before beginning any diet or weight-loss program.

Achieving a healthy weight has benefits for both your body and mind. To reduce your risk of chronic health conditions, live better, and enjoy more confidence, consider weight loss with Dr. Marshall at Tru-Male Medical. Call the office or make your first appointment online to learn more.
