Kick start healthy and sustainable weight loss. Under our guidance, this program will help guests lose weight through nutrition, fitness, and alternative medicine.
A healthy weight is a weight that lowers your risk for health problems. For most people, body mass index (BMI) and waist size are good ways to tell if they are at a healthy weight.
But reaching a healthy weight isn’t just about reaching a certain number on the scale or a certain BMI. Having healthy eating and exercise habits is very important.
If you want to get to a healthy weight and stay there, healthy lifestyle changes will work better than dieting. Reaching a certain number on the scale is not as important as having a healthy lifestyle.
Why pay attention to your weight?
Staying at a healthy weight is one of the best things you can do for your health. It can help prevent serious health problems, including:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea
But weight is only one part of your health. Even if you carry some extra weight, eating healthy foods and being more active can help you feel better, have more energy, and lower your risk for diseases.
Age Less specializes in medical weight loss. If you’ve struggled in the past to lose weight, we can help you with one of our effective programs.
Prescription Drug Program: These programs involve the use of FDA-approved prescription diet pills to curb the appetite and jump-start the weight loss process. The programs also include individualized counseling and exercise components.
hCG Diet Program: hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is administered by either injection, nose spray or cream to allow your hypothalamus to function at a higher capacity and access abnormal fat it usually cannot access during dieting. This glycoprotein allows you to burn between 2500-4000 calories per day with an intake of only 500 calories per day without hunger, loss of energy, or need for exercise. Patients lose 1-2 lbs per day without hunger and hCG allows patients to lose more fat tissue directly, causing visible contouring of the body while resetting the hypothalamus. This program is designed for long lasting results.
Low Calorie Program: Age Less Wellness tailors each low-calorie diet to the patient’s specific metabolism and aims efforts at rapid weight loss.
Modified Program: This is a custom designed plan with many options available. Based on a number of factors, The Age Less Wellness medical staff will decide on which modified program will fit your individual medical and financial needs and how quickly you want to reach your goals. Plans include Glycemic Index, High Protein, and other metabolic rate weight loss programs.
Our greatest goal is helping you institute lifestyle changes that enable you to keep the new, healthier body you’ve achieved with our weight loss program. Detailed, individualized nutrition counseling, supplements, and exercise habits are all part of the consultations in the maintenance phase of each program.

Unsupervised plans may result in unwanted complications and is not an advisable approach. HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)
What is (& is not) HCG?
HCG acts exclusively on the brain centers that control human body fat storage capabilities. It also works on centers that affect the appetite.
HCG is a natural hormone that is found in the human body only during pregnancy.
HCG that is used for weight management is a natural compound that is produced in the laboratories from sterile cells. It is not extracted from the urine of pregnant women or from other primates.
HCG is not a sex hormone. It has no effect on normally developed and functioning sex glands in both men and women. It does not increase or decrease the sex drive and function. Men Do not grow breasts or become feminized. Women do not grow a beard or develop a gruff voice.
HCG is not a growth hormone, unlike human growth hormone (HGH) or anabolic male hormones (testosterone or “andro”). It does not increase muscle mass.
Slow weight retention over the years, typically is a direct result of your body’s hormonal imbalances. HCG dieters are instructed to cut their daily intake of calories to 500 a day, after the third day. This is much easier than it sounds. Once the HCG becomes active in a dieter’s body, its release of long-stored fat provides the body with the calories it needs to burn to get through a day. The food consumed while on the diet is high in protein and low in starches, carbohydrates and fat causing the body to pull from its own stores. As long as fat deposits are being released for use, the 500 daily calories being ingested is enough to sustain the dieter without the crazy hunger pains one would normally experience on a 500-calorie diet.
