In 1954, an endocrinologist, Dr. Simeons, discovered that a natural hormone found in the body called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) could accelerate fat mobilization from certain area of the body when combined with a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). It is proposed that HCG has the effect of “unlocking” the body’s fat stores so that metabolism can safely burn these energy reserves to power daily bodily functions. The special component to weight loss with HCG is that it is a muscle-sparing form of weight loss. A benefit to the use of HCG is that it releases about 1500-4000 calories per day into your system thus preventing hunger and preventing the body from entering starvation mode.
This Medical Weight Loss Program will address and correct:
- Low metabolism
- Intense and constant hunger
- Food cravings
- Emotional eating
The HCG diet will be taken for a period of 26 days or 40 days, depending on the amount of weight to be lost. Also included are weekly visits and coaching with our nutrition and fitness coach which will continue through the 6 week maintenance period.
Candidates for this Medical Weight Loss Program include:
- Patients with 15+ pounds to lose or those over 30% body fat
- Patients who are capable of sticking to a highly structured and monitored weight loss program
- Patients who are obese and have several health risks related to obesity
- Those looking to lose the “last 10 pounds” of stubborn weight
HCG Diet Results
The average weight loss on the LONG HCG diet program (40 days) is 20-25 pounds for women and 25-30 pounds for men. For the SHORT HCG diet program, women can expect a 10-15 pound loss and men, a 20-25 pound loss. Results will vary by individual based on program adherence, gender, body fat ratio, and individual metabolic rate. The average rate of weight loss is half a pound to one pound per day. We have not found any significant difference in rate of loss between the sublingual form versus then injections.
