it Works and Its Safe
The HCG Diet is a physician supervised diet that begins with an initial consultation and medical evaluation.
After the evaluation, some routine blood tests will be required. After the results of the blood tests are reviewed by the physician you can then be started on the hCG supplement.
"We don't just check you in, hand out hCG and send you on your way... we provide you with continued support either in person, on the phone, or through our email support system. We also provide you with recipes, food guides, and will help you with decisions on meal preparations and food substitutes. Give us a call today at either of our two convenient locations!"
Patients are then placed on a 500-700 calorie diet, are monitored weekly and will remain on the program for 4-6 weeks. An average weight loss is 1-2 pounds per day.
HCG is a hormone (with the long name glycoprotein hormone HCG) that are found in the bloodstream. This useful substance converts fat to energy that a mom-to-be can use during pregnancy and helps speed up the mother's metabolism. But HCG hormone isn't just useful for pregnant women -you can use HCG when you're not expecting to drop the pounds quickly and safely. HCG for weight loss stimulates your hypothalamus, which controls your levels of hunger, your metabolism, and your growth. HCG effectively targets your problem parts - those fatty areas like the butt and the stomach that are so difficult to shrink. HCG retunes the hypothalamus to keep useful fat and lean muscle mass while breaking down the problem fat as fuel for energy. So the calories in the food you eat are available for fueling your body for action, and not replenishing your fat stores.
When your HCG drops are homeopathic, which means the full strength hormone has been diluted hundreds of times to make it more potent, you don't need to dilute it further. Simply take the drops under the tongue as directed - the homeopathic drops are a powerful imprint of the original substance and work on a powerful level in your body. The standard daily dosage is 10-20 drops to start with, three times a day. You can increase the dose if you feel hungry by two more drops, up to a limit of 20 drops at a time.
Everyone is different and we all have our own way of taking the drops to suit our energy levels and hunger pangs. However, you should take your drops a minimum of 15 minutes before you eat. And don't take anything else orally for at least 15 minutes - that includes chewing gum, toothpaste and cigarettes.
Your drops don't need to be specially stored if they're unopened
Why the HCG Diet is So Effective
hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone that is naturally produced in the body which has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It also allows the body to use stored fat as energy when your body needs it immediately. For the purpose of losing weight, you only need small amounts of hCG to mimic this same fat burning action and it can be safely used by both adult men and women.
hCG causes your hypothalamus to move fat out of fat storage locations so that it is available for your body to use for energy. While you are only consuming 500 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. In actuality, your body is utilizing thousands of calories a day of fat from your storage areas which can result in a weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds of fat or more, each day. hCG also resets the hypothalamus to prevent the regaining of weight.
Is HCG safe?
hCG is extremely safe and the small amount that is used for weight loss has very few, if any, side effects.
Can men go on the hCG diet?
Men usually get a better result than women on the HCG diet. It is equally as safe for men as it is women with no significant side effects. Men will not experience any enlargement of breast tissue or estrogen effects as it is not a sex hormone, but is more like adrenalin or thyroxine.
Will my metabolism slow down if I’m on a very low-calorie diet?
Yes, normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies tend to preserve fat and metabolism slow down.
Would I lose the same amount of weight just by eating a low-calorie diet alone?
You can lose weight by eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation,
you will most likely lose vital lean muscle before actually losing the fat. This causes metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, it would decrease normal fat stores and lean muscle mass resulting in extreme hunger and fatigue.
Also, you will not lose fat in your problem areas and when you stop the diet you will immediately gain all the weight
back and maybe even more.
Can I eat anything I want as long as it equals 500 calories?
That is not advised. The exact foods in combination with the hCG cause the hypothalamus to move the fat reserves to cause significant weight loss without the loss of muscle or structural fat. Your body will only release these fat reserves after it has burned its consumed calories. So if you eat less than 500 calories you will not accelerate weight loss results. In fact, eating smaller quantities of food can actually stop the fat moving mechanism.
What happens if I miss one or more doses?
Missing doses, like any medication, will delay the total effectiveness of the program. For every dose missed you could potentially delay weight loss for 3 days and can experience increased hunger and cravings. If you miss more than 3 doses in one week the effect of the hCG is nullified, you should stop altogether or start over.
How much weight can I expect to lose on the program?
The amount of weight loss is dependent upon your starting point (i.e., the more weight to lose the more weight is lost). On average, patients can expect to lose approximately 15-40 pounds per month with it not being unusual for some people to lose 10 to 12 pounds in the first week.
Will I gain weight back once I stop the program?
Like any diet, you shouldn't go back to the prior eating habits that caused you to gain weight in the first place. Some degree of moderation in eating will be necessary because of the tendency to gain weight after any type of weight loss program. Stability of the normal weight is relatively easy because the weight loss is from stored fat and not from structural fat.
Is physical exercise required?
Physical activity is essential in maintaining total health for your body but is not a mandatory requirement for this diet.
Disclaimer: "These weight reduction treatments include the use of hCG, A drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that hCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets"
