What is HCG?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by the placenta in pregnant women and almost completely controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus throughout the pregnancy. The HCG used in the HCG diet protocols is a variation of the HCG form used for fertility treatments, and in much smaller, minute doses.
Most HCG dieters report an average loss of 1 to 2 lbs per day. However, everyone is different and results may vary. In our offices we offer a 20 day program or a 40 day program
What preparations are required for HCG diet shots?
Prior to treatment, our physician or practitioner will do a pregnancy test and perform a general health evaluation.
For individual injections, generally no preparations are required. The HCG program we offer is self-injecting, the physician or practitioner will provide exact instructions and a packet with the diet and recommendations will be provided at no cost.
Who is a right candidate for HCG Diet Shots?
The majority of men and women can use HCG injections for weight loss. It is recommended that dieters consult a physician concerning your weight loss, along with the appropriate implementation of the HCG protocol . The physician will NOT permit HCG weight loss injections for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Will I gain the weight back after the HCG diet?
After the HCG diet, not only will you have lost physical weight, former HCG Dieters also report a change for the better in appetite, and a natural course of modified eating behavior. They also report this as being an ideal situation for easily transitioning into a healthy relationship with food.
With all of these changes and experiences, the HCG Diet is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight.
