Strategic Weight Loss Program Consent
Our Strategic weight loss programs (HC2, HCA and HCG drops) are weight loss programs designed by Weighless MD. The products used in this program are pharmaceutical grade and among the highest quality on the market.
The purpose of these programs is to provide a combination of nutrients that support the metabolism of abnormal fat stores, while supporting the body’s imbalances. The diet is a very structured low calorie plan that must be followed for optimal results.

Our strategic weight loss programs produce a weight loss of 15-23 lbs in a 4 week period. There is often an improvement in metabolic health in patients that are obese, pre-diabetic, and diabetic. The ability to improve and possibly prevent the onset of diabetes and its associated health risks is a benefit to this weight loss program.
There is no question that obesity increases morbidity and mortality rates. Through targeted weight loss and a lowering of body mass index, these risks are substantially reduced.
