Nuviva Medical Weight Loss

Physician supervised weight loss that includes hCG drops.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Nuviva Medical Weight Loss is a branch of clinics that use proven and effective weight loss methods along with diet and exercise for weight loss success. The clinics are located throughout Florida and use physician supervised programs for all patients. There are six elements involved in the weight loss plan which include weight loss medications, supplements, education, support, diet and exercise. It should be noted that the medications used on this program include hCG injections and appetite suppressants. The use of hCG injections offers a warning since the use of hCG drops and injections have been proven by the FDA to be ineffective. The other medications that Nuviva Medical Weight Loss Clinics use include Phentermine, Phendimetrazine and B12/MICC.

DIET and NUTRITION

There are four different stages to the nutrition plan that comes with the Nuviva Medical Weight Loss Clinics program. Each phase of the plan has been designed to work in conjunction with various medications and nutraceuticals prescribed in order to accomplish safe and significant weight loss. The goal of the diet is to eliminate yo-you diet and correct the problems of weight cycling. The details of the diet are given once you enter the program, but when using the hCG component of the program, it is likely you will only be allowed to have 500 calories per day.

EXERCISE

The Nuviva Medical Weight Loss Clinics do utilize the element of exercise with their program. They work with each individual to find a specific exercise regimen to do during each phase of the program which includes specific supplements and medications being taken. Your individual exercise plan will be designed taking into consideration your age, weight, physical ability and desired results.

CONCLUSION

The Nuviva Medical Weight Loss Clinics offer a program that focuses on losing weight through prescribed medications and supplements throughout the four phases. This program also uses hCG treatments and the controversial weight loss drug Phentermine. This approach may work for some, but a solid program of diet and exercise can be very effective without the side effects of taking prescribed drugs.

Misinformation about the program...at no time is there a 500 calorie per day requirement in Nuviva. It is irresponsible of you to speak to the validity of something when you don't know what you are talking about. SHAME on you!!!!!
