Frequently Asked Questions
Is there HCG in the Healthy Start Spray?
Is the program safe?
Yes, the program is safe and time tested. The use variations of our type of program haven have been in effect since the 1920’s, but its procedure in regards to weight loss has been used since the 1950’s. We do not advocate or use prescription diet pills as they simply “speed” your metabolism and most individuals complain of chest pain, and that they feel jittery and anxious. In addition, patients have a loss of appetite so they lose weight because they are not eating. They are not losing “fat” but they are many times just losing water and muscle. Once the patient discontinues the diet pills, most individuals simply regain the weight. Our Healthy Systems USA weight loss system works at addressing obesity by way of a healthy nutrient dense diet and the use of our products to target and release the secondary fat reserves.
Is it safe for me to continue taking my usual medications and vitamins?
Yes. We encourage you to continue to take your medications as most of our patients have obesity related conditions such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. We find that good quality vitamins enhance the individual’s health and improve weight loss. Our staff will work with you and your current Primary Care Physician.
Will this give me heart palpitations, make me jittery or affect my sleep?
No. This is not an Rx diet pill like Phentermine. Most programs that cause heart palpitations, jittery sensations, or affect sleep are stimulant based programs which have an end goal of suppressing hunger. Our program’s goal is for you to lose “fat” while nourishing your body all while being on a nutritious, healthy, low calorie diet.
What types of programs are available?
We have 1 month and 2 month programs available. You can choose the program which best fits your weight loss goals.
What is an average weight loss for the program?
The average male patient loses up to 1 pound of fat per day. The average female patient loses up to 1/2 to 3/4 pounds of fat per day.
Will I feel hungry?
You should not feel hungry. Our program will assist your body into using nutrients stored in your abnormal fat deposits to nourish and feed you. Therefore you won’t experience the physiological or psychological hunger. In the first 3 days of your low calorie diet you might experience cravings (mental hunger) because your body is removing toxins. If this were to happen, your nurse or medical assistant can provide you with a non-stimulant appetite support.
Am I required to exercise to see results?
No. You are not required to exercise to see results on this program. In fact, we ask that our patients limit themselves to non-strenuous exercise (walking, stretching, swimming, yoga) while they are on the program.
What happens after I complete the program? Will I regain my weight?
After you complete the weight loss portion of the program you will enter the maintenance program or what we call the stabilization period. During this portion of the program we will reintroduce different healthy food options that were absent during the weight loss program. The end goal of maintenance is to create a new weight set point so that you do not regain all of the weight back. At the (the) end of the program, you will have a new and different relationship with food.
