Dr. Girouard's Diet Program
Dr. Girouard was one of the first to advocate what several recent medical studies have proven to be the most effective, safest and healthiest diet for weight loss.
Adding his own unique breakthrough discoveries, he has developed an optimal eating plan which produces better results than the traditional 500 Calorie Simeon diet without the severe calorie restriction.HCG BMI

We have been blessed to witness the dramatic results that weight loss produces in many of our patients with debilitating health problems. Hundreds, if not thousands, of our diabetic, hypertensive, and "high cholesterol" patients have been able to discontinue their expensive medications through weight loss and normalization of their lab values. Additionally, patients with osteoarthritis and acid reflux note significant relief or complete resolution of their pain and discomfort. Finally, because of the HCG injections we use, we have seen significant improvement in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, MS, fibromyalgia and even migraines. Check back for the latest news on Belviq and Qsymia.
In general, your body only sees and needs certain types of foods (proteins, carbohydrates, fats), and certain chemicals (water, vitamins, minerals). There is a definite need for all of these, even fats! For those of us who are "adiposity challenged" with excess body fat, the goal is to reduce the total number of calories consumed while still acquiring the foods and chemicals our body needs. Supplements are tremendous tools all of us can utilize to make any diet healthier, safer, and more effective. They can provide both the foods and chemicals we require and do so with far fewer calories than alternative sources.
In addition to the products referenced here, the main supplements we recommend are:
- Multivitamin With Minerals - taken after supper as they are typically absorbed better, won't make you hungry, and most can be used during sleep to help the body repair itself.
- Vitamin D - research has proven that normal vitamin D levels in blood at the beginning of your diet will contribute to better results. Whether the lack of vitamin D leads to obesity, or obesity causes deficiency of vitamin D is yet to be determined, but we do know that vitamin D has been strongly linked with obesity and that supplementing vitamin D during a weight loss program is essential. We recommend our patients have a baseline vitamin D test done, called "Serum 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D Test" by their Primary Care Doctor, so they can better determine their vitamin D needs.
- Calcium Supplement - 1500mg; especially for post-menopausal women, often with vitamin D, but not with the multivitamin.
- Lemon Flavored Fish Oil - capsules provide essential fatty acids.
- Healthy Chocolate - only a handful of companies in the US make their own chocolate from scratch. Healthy Chocolate is made using only USDA organic certified cocoa butter and liquor from South America's Fair Trade Countries. Our delicious product is made using a very unique patent pending process for making the only 70% dark chocolate in the market today that is 100% sweetened with Xylitol, a natural sweetener obtained from US birch trees. Our newly awarded registered trade mark, THE CHOCOCEUTICAL WAY OF LIFE® truly describes our Chococeutical Delivery System for using our chocolate platform to deliver multiple Herbal Blends, Vitamins, Nutrients and/or Proteins to the human body.
