Weight Loss Q&A

What is a healthy weight?

Modern medicine uses a simple calculation to evaluate weight called a body mass index (BMI). BMI measures the share of body fat based on your age, weight, height, and gender. 

Inputting this information results in a number that tells you whether you’re at a healthy weight. BMI categories are:

  • Normal weight: 18.5-24.9
  • Overweight: 25-29.9
  • Obese: Over 30

By calculating your BMI, the team at Chicque Aesthetics establishes a starting point for your weight loss journey. They then develop a targeted weight loss plan to help you reach — and maintain — a healthy weight.

What is included in a weight loss plan?

Expect the team at Chicque Aesthetics to tailor your weight loss plan to your size, health, and other factors. Your program may include one or more of the following components:

  • Injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) 
  • Daily vitamin injections
  • Dietary plan
  • hCG
  • B12 shots with MIC

Chicque Aesthetics recommends a low-fat, low-calorie diet. You can expect to eat a total of 500 calories daily for about 28 days. Most patients lose 10-25 pounds on this plan. Individual results vary, however.

How do B-12 shots help with weight loss?

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin naturally found in a variety of foods, such as meat and dairy products. As part of your weight loss program, the team may recommend B-12 shots with MIC (methionine, inositol, and choline) to give you more energy and boost your metabolism.

Methionine is an essential amino acid that helps the liver process fat. Inositol is a nutrient that also helps metabolize fat and reduces cholesterol, and choline is a nutrient that transports and metabolizes fat and cholesterol in the body.

Together, the combination of these elements aids in the proper metabolism and breakdown of fat in your liver, plays a key role in digestion, lowers cholesterol levels, and provides an energy boost.

This injection can be administered up to twice a week, and in combination with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, it can accelerate your weight loss goals and help you shed unwanted pounds.

How do injections help me lose weight?

Chicque Aesthetics offers a selection of targeted injections to aid your weight loss goals. These daily injections may offer many benefits, including helping to:

  • Boost your metabolism
  • Burn fat
  • Increase energy 

How does hCG help with weight loss?

HCG is a naturally occurring hormone. Although hCG is known as a pregnancy hormone, men and women alike may benefit from using this powerful hormone as part of a medically supervised weight loss plan.

The team at Chicque Aesthetics recommends hCG to help boost your metabolism and ensure your body continuously burns calories. Doing so may also help your body constantly burn fat, even while you're working or sleeping. 

Your injections often include vitamin B-12. Increasing your intake of this vitamin as part of your weight loss plan may help you burn fat faster and shed extra pounds.

If you've tried to lose weight on your own without much success, trust the team at Chicque Aesthetics to partner with you to help you achieve your goals. Call to book your weight loss consultation today.
