FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a referral?

NO.
A referral from your GP is not required. 

Is your weight loss program safe?

YES. 
Our injections are a medically prescribed hormone that is naturally occurring in the body – so it’s 100% safe.

Is your program similar to Ozempic weight loss injections?

NO.
Our program differs from Ozempic weight loss injections. We utilize a naturally occurring hormone found in human tissue. Ozempic, on the other hand, is primarily a medication designed for managing type 2 diabetes. The active ingredient in Ozempic is semaglutide, a member of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists class of drugs. These medications focus on regulating blood sugar levels. For detailed information about Ozempic, we recommend reaching out to your GP.

What amount of weight can I anticipate losing on your program?

Individual weight loss (fat loss) differs from person to person. In our program, women typically experience a loss of 6-7 kilograms over a 3-week period, while men may see a reduction of 10-12 kilograms. It's important to note that weight loss is not guaranteed and can vary based on individual factors.

Won't I naturally lose weight on a low-calorie diet?

Certainly! The challenge, however, lies in the potential loss of structural fat, normal fat, and muscle mass. Our weight loss program is designed to address this concern by specifically targeting adipose (abnormal) fat, avoiding muscle loss. This is facilitated through the use of a prescribed hormone that selectively unlocks adipose fat while preventing muscle loss. Additionally, the program helps in controlling hunger, sugar cravings, and balancing hormones.

Will I experience hunger while on the program?

It's normal to experience mild hunger during the initial days after starting the injections; however, this typically diminishes by the second week. To help mitigate hunger, it's recommended to ensure completion of the necessary 'fat loading' in Phase 1 of the diet. The hormone used in the program not only curbs appetite but also enhances mood, facilitates the burning of stubborn fat, and establishes healthy eating habits for the long term.

Is intermittent fasting required on the program?

While it is recommended to incorporate intermittent fasting, it's not mandatory. For those who prefer not to fast, we can customize an eating plan to suit your preferences. Emphasizing the content of your meals is more crucial than the timing. If you choose to follow intermittent fasting, the suggested window is having your first meal between 12-12:30 pm and your last meal between 6-7 pm.

Is this a Keto Diet?

NO.
It's not a Keto Diet. 
However, we aim for the state of Ketosis to facilitate fat loss. Ketosis occurs when your body, deprived of carbohydrates, turns to its fat stores for energy. Normally, complex carbohydrates (starches) are broken down into simple carbohydrates (glucose), which is then converted to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the energy molecule essential for all bodily functions. By reducing carb intake, the body accesses stored fat for energy, leading to fat loss. Excess calories from carbs, when consumed, are stored in fat cells

I am a vegetarian - can I participate in your program?

Absolutely! We will tailor your food program to accommodate your vegetarian preferences during our Phase 2 kick-off appointment.

What is the difference between prescription hormone injections and homeopathic drops?

This is a frequently asked question, and it's crucial to provide clarity. In 2011, the TGA in Australia introduced regulations concerning the sale of "Homeopathic Weight Loss Hormone," prompting companies offering "Hormone Drops" to reformulate their products.

 

These reformulations often include amino acids and/or herbal supplements. It's essential to note that homeopathic versions lack the genuine human hormone found in human tissue, and therefore, it is not a listed ingredient in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia.

The absence of the authentic hormone in homeopathic versions can result in a different bodily response to the diet. Genuine Prescription hormone allows the body to tap into its fat reserves, providing essential nutrition and energy during a very low-calorie diet.

In contrast, homeopathic "drops" may primarily serve as herbal supplements and appetite suppressants, potentially leading to undesired metabolic changes.

 

The authentic hormone treatment for the diet adheres to a strict protocol involving doctor-prescribed injections. Conversely, homeopathic "Drop" companies might assert similar weight loss benefits without the actual presence of the naturally occurring hormone. This disparity has been associated with instances of rebound weight gain following their diet programs.

Our Prescription weight loss treatment stands out as the safest and most effective method for achieving successful fat loss.

Isn't eating 500-800 calories a day unhealthy and not safe?

Concerns have been raised about the sustainability of a 500-800 calorie daily intake, deeming it unhealthy and unsafe. It's important to clarify that this calorie restriction is specifically for the 21 or 42-day program duration and is not intended for lifelong adherence.

 

Clients actively engaged in the diet are under medical supervision, attending weekly consultations to monitor health and progress. Upon achieving the desired weight loss, individuals transition to a healthy calorie intake based on their new Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and adopt a sustainable lifestyle.

 

Our program is designed as a diet, not a lifelong regimen. The aim is to rapidly shed unhealthy fat, establish new habits, and enable individuals to maintain their weight loss effectively.

Will my weight loss be permanent?

Weight loss can be a transformative journey, but it's important to remember that the path to lasting change doesn't end there. While the initial success is inspiring, maintaining your progress is where the REAL transformation happens. It's about embracing sustainable habits, making mindful choices, and finding a balance that fits your life. You have the power to make your hard work last and enjoy the benefits of a healthier, happier you.
