The Real Housewives star Lauren Manzo underwent risky Lap-band surgery, so we've been inspired to create personalized hCG diet plan as a natural alternative to unsafe, and invasive surgery!
After a very public struggle to lose weight, a star of the hit reality TV show The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Lauren Manzo has lost 35 pounds.
In an interview with US magazine, Manzo revealed that she had tried a few different diets, but saw no success with the more popular weight loss programs like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and L.A. Weight Loss.
We have one of the only medical hCG programs in the U.S. and almost all of our products are pharmaceutical-grade, including the supplements, which require a prescription. We work to make our modified version of the hCG diet as effective as possible not only by offering the best weight loss products but by providing the best care possible, says Julie Wright, Founder and CEO for Diet Doc.
In a recently published a report, ABC News revealed that more than half of the patients who undergo lap band surgery had at least one re-operation due to complications or device malfunction.
Herbert Lerner M.D., supervisory medical officer for the FDA, stated that “surgery itself has risks, including death, and those risks are heightened for people who are obese.”
Most will agree that weight loss surgery should be used as an absolute last-resort for people who are struggling to lose weight.
In fact, a good number of people actually will require another operation to either reposition, replace, or remove the gastric band at some point in the future due to complications or because they have not lost weight according to Lerner.
The procedure is not available to everyone though. According to the FDA, Lap-band surgery is only approved for those with a BMI over 40, or a BMI of 35 and at least one obesity related health condition. The report continues, listing a number of risks and side-effects of Lap-band surgery that often include:
Moving of the band through the stomach wall
Leaking of the band
And many others
Manzo then decided to undergo the painful and risky Lap-band surgery in September of 2011. The surgery was a success, Manzo did lose weight, but why would she take such a big risk when safer alternatives to rapid weight loss exist?
In an effort to help those who suffer the same weight loss struggle as Lauren Manzo, Diet Doc is offering a natural hCG weight loss program individualized for each patient according to their health factors.
This 50-year-old weight loss solution has no known side effects and has even been approved by “America’s doctor” Dr. Oz himself, according to his published report.
Our hCG diet is monitored by an integrative team of doctors, nutritionists, nurses and health advisors to ensure maximum efficiency and the best weight loss available. This medically-supervised hCG diet can last from 23 days, which is one cycle, all the way up to 6 weeks and guarantees faster and healthier weight loss than Lap-band surgery. Diet Doc has made the program easy to follow with daily doses of hCG and allows well over 1000 calories a day with a wide variety of diet food options.
Each patient is given personalized attention throughout the program to ensure its safety as well as its effectiveness.
“We offer a great natural alternative to invasive surgery that has little to no side effects. Most of our patients report seeing considerable results in just two weeks,” says Dr. Rao, Medical Director for Diet Doc.
The hCG hormone plays a crucial role in the diet because it triggers the brain into converting fat into energy and is also known to suppress the appetite. Thus, our diet is even popular among bodybuilders and trainers due to hCG's ability to targets only fat and preserve muscle.
