While at Midwest Fat Loss, we only recommend light exercise if you desire. 20 minutes of low intensity walking is acceptable. When exercising, the body burns calories. Because the body is not able to metabolize fat as fast as it is burned with exercise, you have a significantly greater chance for injury due to rapid onset fatigue. We simply ask that you give us 42 days with minimal exercise. Once you are done with the 42 days, we strongly encourage exercising.
NO! Never skip any of your meals. It’s important to eat all of your allotted food. It is especially important that you consume the full portions of protein. Additionally, do not move portions of food from one meal to the next.
Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first week, then a gradual slowing of weight loss. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion.
While weight loss will vary by person, most people, who adhere to the Doctor Supervised Program at Midwest Fat Loss, have lost between 20-35 pounds on the 42-day program. Everyone is different. It depends on many factors including how much excess weight you have, how much weight needs to be lost, and your adherence to the program at Midwest Fat Loss
If you are pregnant you cannot take part in our weight loss program. If you become pregnant during our weight loss program, immediately stop taking the supplement provided by Midwest Fat Loss and consult your physician.
There are no changes to your menstrual cycle. Likewise, our program will not affect your ability to become pregnant, nor will it increase your chances of getting pregnant. It is best to avoid starting the program if you are within 5-6 days of your menstrual cycle. Wait until after your menstrual cycle is complete to start the program. Once on our program and you have a menstrual cycle, you can maintain the diet and continue taking the nutritional support formula. If you are currently taking fertility medications, we advise against starting our program.
Will this program interfere with any medications I am currently taking? What about birth control pills or Depo-Provera injections?
The ingredients and dosages contained within the nutritional support formula have not been shown to interact with any medications, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera. Even though there are currently no clinically proven side effects to this program, as with any diet, we do recommend consulting with your doctor to make sure the doctor supervised weight loss program is appropriate for you.
While it is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days, this sensation will usually stop after 4-6 days. By the end of the first week you will find your servings to be satisfying. This is because our proprietary formula is specifically blended with additional ingredients to aid in blood sugar stabilization as well as natural hunger and craving suppressors. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body is being given the substances it needs to more easily access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Drinking 80-120 ounces of water per day will additionally act as an extra hunger suppressant and help keep your energy level high. As a “rule of thumb” the average person on our program has plenty of energy and feels good while on the program.
While a person will lose weight while on a VLCD without the additional nutritional support provided by the formula, the body will rapidly go into “starvation mode”. Starvation mode is a protective function of the human body. When an individual consumes fewer calories than they consume over a prolonged period of time, the human body will actually slow down the metabolism, start burning muscle for energy, and attempt to store any fat that is consumed. This is extremely unhealthy and will only cause a massive rebound weight gain when the VLCD is discontinued. Additionally, an individual should never attempt a VLCD without physician supervision. By using the our weight loss program as directed, in combination with a specific blend and portion of low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods, the body will be more effective at fatty acid transportation and fatty acid metabolism.
It is true that when dramatically cutting back on calories, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down. This is what is referred to as “starvation mode”. “Starvation Mode” occurs because the body attempts to store the most calorie dense material, which happens to be fat (9cal/gm). When very specific dietary/behavioral changes are used in conjunction with the jnutritional support formula, the body will more easily perform the process of fatty acid transportation and metabolism. This will aid your body in mobilizing and utilizing fat to give you the calories that are needed. The nutritional support formula, when combined with doctor supervision and a specific blend of low glycemic index/anti-inflammatory foods, will help to keep the body from going into starvation mode by allowing fat to be more easily burned to make up the caloric deficit.
Our proprietary formula is safe for men. In fact, men often experience faster results and more significant results.
Prescription HCG is usually pure pharmaceutical grade HCG with no supporting elements to help it perform. Prescription HCG can be very effective but must be obtained and monitored only by a licensed medical physician. This makes it very expensive as well as being against the law to possess it without a prescription. Pure HCG is usually administered by injection only. Our nutritional support formula is a blend of very specific ingredients including amino acids, vitamins, and cell salts and is designed to help your body function better. When used for improved health or as part of the doctor supervised weight loss program, along with dietary and behavioral changes, it is safe, effective and affordable.
