Emil Shakov, M.D., F.A.C.S. – Freehold New Jersey HCG Doctor
Emil Shakov, MD, FACS is a board certified general surgeon with fellowship training in bariatric surgery. He also had medical weight loss and HCG diet training at The American Academy of Procedural Medicine and medical weight loss training at the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. Obesity is a substantial public health crisis with nearly half the adult US population being overweight or obese. Some medical professionals approach weight loss treatment as another prescription to write for the patient. Dr. Shakov is not that doctor. As a New Jersey HCG Doctor, he takes into consideration the patient’s eating habits, background, overall build, and lifestyle to come up with a plan that incorporates dietary and behavioral modification along with supplements and, if needed, possible pharmaceutical adjuncts to help men and women achieve realistic goals.
What is The HCG Diet?
The HCG diet uses the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is the hormone that women naturally produce during pregnancy. This hormone helps women’s bodies to breakdown fat stores to feed a growing fetus in the event of a food shortage or famine. When the brain feels that there is a nutrient deficit, it works to release fat and use the calories to supply the woman and fetus with adequate amounts of nutrients and energy. When a person is not pregnant and ingests the hormone, it works in a similar way.
When done the right way and under the supervision of a qualified physician, patients can have remarkable results with the HCG Diet. The HCG is a hormone that works on the hypothalamus, the part of the brain, which is responsible for hunger and satiety, to act as an appetite suppressant. The diet spares lean muscle and allows the body to access abnormal fat stores and break them down for energy.
There are many benefits of the HCG diet, which can be administered as a sublingual drop or daily self-injections. Patients can lose around one to two pounds of abnormal fat per day. Exercise is not needed during the diet in order to lose weight. HCG helps the body to reset the hypothalamus, which leads to long lasting results. The weight loss is proportional and the body re-sculpts during the process. Most patients are not irritable like they would be on regular diets, and most importantly it is a safe way to lose weight while under the supervision of a qualified physician.
Some of the benefits the HCG Diet offers include:
- Rapid Weight Loss
- Reduced Appetite
- Reset Metabolism
- Retained Muscle Mass
- Permanent Weight Loss
- Limited Mood Swings
- Reduced Food Cravings
- Improved Problem Areas
Dr. Shakov offers his personalized weight loss services by creating a customized plan that is right for each individual. He has become an expert in the field of physician supervised weight loss. Dr. Shakov firmly believes that it is not the number on the scale that is the problem, it’s the body fat content. It’s possible for a person to be quite healthy when they are considered overweight. He works hard to teach each of his patients to find their own healthy zone, and to let go of the mental blocks and expectations that so many people come in with. One of his favorite lessons to impart is that “Losing weight is not about stopping eating, it’s about making the necessary changes for a long-term healthy you. So when you look into the mirror, that person looking back at you is smiling!”
In addition to the HCG diet, patients can add Lipotrophic injections to help accelerate weight loss. Dr. Emil Shakov and The Youth Fountain are able to offer The HCG Diet the right way. Dr. Emil Shakov is a bariatric surgeon with extensive experience in surgical and medical management of weight loss. Patients that come in to see him will be evaluated to make sure that they are good candidates to undergo the diet, as not every person can use the diet plan.
