Studies estimate that over 54 million men in the United States are overweight, with around 35 million being classed as obese. Those people who are overweight or obese are considered to have so much excess weight that their health is at risk. Nevertheless, the reality is that losing weight is a monumental challenge. If you are overweight or obese, chances are you know just how hard it is to shift those extra pounds. Putting weight on is significantly harder than losing it, and many people simply don’t have the ongoing willpower and commitment needed to make a very real change to their weight.
We all know that diet and exercise are two fundamental and unavoidable tools to achieve long-term, sustainable weight loss. However, there is nothing wrong with giving your weight loss a boost using some other solutions that have been shown to speed up the process of dropping the pounds.
Here are some lesser-known weight loss solutions that you might like to incorporate into your weight loss program.
Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) that can improve overall health and wellbeing by stimulating the production and release of hormones by the pituitary gland. Growth hormones play many different roles in our health and wellbeing, including having a metabolic effect. People who are obese are known to have low levels of growth hormone in their bodies. However, studies have shown that by boosting levels of growth hormones such as sermorelin, patients can achieve a reduction in fat mass, particularly visceral fat which is known to be the ‘dangerous’ fat that accumulates around our vital organs. Many experts agree that combined with a healthy, balanced diet and exercise, sermorelin injections can be a useful weight loss tool.
The use of sermorelin injections also provides patients with a variety of other benefits. These include:
More energy and stamina
Improved heart rate
These represent just some of the reasons why sermorelin injections are popular, not only for weight loss, but for boosting your overall health and wellbeing.
Many people know HCG, or human chorionic gonadotrophin, to be the hormone that women’s bodies make during pregnancy. However, it has also been found to have several other uses, including as a tool for weight loss. This technique, first proposed by a British doctor in the 1950s, has two key components. The first is following an ultra-low-calorie diet of just 500 calories each day. The second is supplements of the HCG hormone. This combination is believed to give a serious boost to your metabolism that will help you burn large amounts of fat without the typical feelings of hunger associated with most low-calorie diets.
Supplements of the HCG hormone are available as injections, oral drops, pellets and sprays, and are widely available online and in some retail stores.
Liposhots, or lipotropic injections, are another supplement that is gaining popularity for its ability to help patients shed unwanted fat. Exactly what is included in a liposhot can vary between clinics. However, most consist of a complex blend of vitamins, nutrients and other ingredients that are well known for aiding weight loss, such as phentermine, L-carnitine, Vitamin B-6 and branched-chain amino acids.
Liposhots are always recommended alongside a personalized weight loss plan, and the frequency with which your shots will be administered will depend on your individual circumstances. They are usually delivered into a fatty area of the body such as the buttocks and can be carried out in a very short appointment.
Many people have heard of vitamin B12 and know that it is one essential nutrient that many of us are naturally lacking. This is because our bodies cannot make it on their own and so rely on us consuming enough of it through our diet – something which is quite hard to do. B12 is most commonly known for delivering energy to the cells in our bodies. Whilst this can help your body to function more efficiently and may even make you feel more awake, alert and energized, it can also boost your metabolism. This in turn can help you to burn more calories, helping to eliminate unwanted fat and enabling you to lose weight.
