Weight Loss

What is physician-supervised weight loss?

Physician-supervised weight loss involves using a proven, medical-grade solution to help you reach a healthy body weight. Because you’re going to partner with your medical team, who carefully monitor you along the way, you have someone looking out for you to ensure you don’t have any health obstacles — like hormonal imbalances — that are preventing you from reaching your goals.

Plus, because you regularly meet one-on-one with the weight loss staff weekly, you’re held accountable. This may be just the motivation you need to help you stick to your diet and eating plan, so you can shed those extra pounds and learn to keep them off for life.

What does your physician-supervised weight loss plan include?

As the only certified Clean Start Weight Loss® clinic in Minnesota, Integrity MediCenter-MediSpa can help you lose weight healthily. Your physician-supervised hCG weight loss plan includes:

  • Controlled diet and meal planning using regular foods
  • 40 days’ worth of hCG injections
  • Fat-burning methionine inositol choline (MIC) injections (optional)
  • Vitamin B complex injections (optional)
  • Detailed diet guidebook, recipe book with over 50 recipes, and daily journal
  • Bioimpedance testing to determine body fat percentage before and after
  • Indirect calorimetry testing to determine your calorie needs at rest once you finish the program

How does the hCG weight loss program work?

You will need some recent labs to make sure your liver, kidneys, and thyroid are working normally prior to starting the program. These labs can be from your clinic or the team can draw them at Integrity MediCenter-MediSpa.

Once your labs are available, you will meet with Dr. Wiita to review your health history and to do a quick physical exam before starting the program. After that, the team will do an orientation to the program and get some measurements and a “before” photo. You will start on your 42-day active weight loss plan, checking in with the team each week to make sure your blood pressure and pulse are stable and that you are losing weight as predicted.  

Part of The Clean Start Weight Loss plan involves using pharmaceutical-grade human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) injections to further break down fat to fill the calorie deficit created by the low-calorie diet, which stimulates rapid weight fat loss.

Because the diet is low in grains, you may opt to receive B-complex injections to keep the metabolic cycles well stocked with the B-vitamins that are important parts of these cycles. You may also opt to receive MIC injections, which are thought to help the liver clear out the breakdown products from the rapid fat loss.  

Once you complete the 42-day hCG weight loss program, then you will have six weeks of maintenance, in two different phases, to make sure you are able to keep the weight off. If you still have more weight to lose, you can sign up for another round of weight loss at a discounted fee.

If you have reached your goal weight, then the team will do indirect calorimetry testing to give you more information about your calorie needs as you transition away from the team. They will also do an “after” set of measurements, bioimpedance testing, and photos, whether you are done or want to sign up for another round.  

What else do you offer?

To help you get rid of those final stubborn spots and tone and tighten your physique, Dr. Wiita offers noninvasive body sculpting with InMode® BodyFX. This revolutionary system permanently destroys any of those fat cells that seem entirely resistant to diet and exercise and even smooths out cellulite. Rest assured, you have support throughout every phase of your weight loss journey at Integrity MediCenter-MediSpa.

Because the team wants you to be super successful at looking great, they will give you a discount on body sculpting treatments if you do the six treatments at the same time as you do your six weight loss check-ins.  

To help you get rid of those stretch marks that are a reminder of the past, the team at Integrity MediCenter-MediSpa offers microneedling packages. A series of four treatments is recommended to treat stretch marks, although it may take more if they are severe.
