IAPAM Adds Education on Metabolism to Its hCG Training

The IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Program now includes a new educational session on metabolism, using the same calorimeter used by The Biggest Loser (tm), to assess a patient's metabolic rates and help ensure long term success during the maintenance phase of the IAPAM hCG Protocol.

Las Vegas, NV, November 08, 2010 --( The IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Training offers physicians a full-day of intensive education on the clinical best practices of hCG for weight loss, lipotropic injections and Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) programs. Now, the IAPAM's hCG Training includes a new educational section on the importance of accurately assessing a patients metabolism as part of a long term weight loss strategy.

Knowing a patient's individual metabolism is the key to successfully keeping the weight off. Patients seeking successful weight loss cannot use a free internet tool to accurately identify the number of calories they need to consume in order to maintain a new weight. Tools like the MedGem Metabolic Measurement device allow physicians to give their patients an accurate calorie count to let them know exactly how many calories they can consume after successfully completing the IAPAM's exclusive hCG Protocol. Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, and one of the faculty instructing at the hCG Physician Weight Loss Training, stresses that with the MedGem calorimeter, "now there is no guessing! At the end of a successful course of hCG, a physician can know exactly how many calories a patient will need to maintain their new weight."

As showcased on the hit TV series, The Biggest Loser (tm), the MedGem device offers physicians the medical tools to assess, initiate and monitor weight loss treatment, including: comprehensive guidelines and documentation for evidence-based obesity assessment, clinical algorithms, and other information pertinent to effective patient weight management. By using the MedGem analyser as part of the IAPAM's hCG maintenance program, which also includes a monthly body composition analysis, a special "fat-burning" injection, and follow-up nutritional and exercise tips, physicians can expertly support the maintenance of their patients' weight loss.

Jeff Russell agrees. "By profiling this state of the art device and including a discussion of metabolic assessments in the IAPAM's 1-day hCG Physician Weight Loss program, the IAPAM's program now offers the most concise and complete training on adding hCG to a medical practice. Given this comprehensiveness, it is understandable why the IAPAM's full day hCG training is the only medical weight loss training in North America approved for a special medical malpractice rate for those who have attended and have been certified by the IAPAM."

All of the IAPAM's 2010 hCG Medical Weight Management seminars have sold out, so to register for the next session in Scottsdale, Arizona, please see, or contact the IAPAM at or 1-800-219-5108 ext 708.
