The HCG diet is not a new concept, in the 1950’s, Dr. ATW Simeons discovered that by injecting small doses of the pregnancy hormone Human Corionic Gonadatrophin (HCG) into obese patients, their appetite decreased and they had consistent weight loss results. By using the HCG injection in conjunction with a very low calorie diet (VLCD) Dr Simeons discovered his clients could more easily maintain the restrictive diet and lose significant amounts of weight especially around hips, thighs, buttocks and stomach. Dr Simeons discovered that both males and females who were administered this HCG, could access abnormal fat stores as an energy source.
Benefits of HCG
The HCG diet does not require exercise in order to lose weight. If you find yourself already pressed for time, or just exhausted at the end of the day, then the HCG diet is here to the rescue. Weight loss is achieved through daily injections of the HCG hormone and a 500 calorie diet. The HCG releases stores of fat into the bloodstream to be used as energy throughout your day. Because the fat is released via the hormone injections, there is no need to spend hours in the gym sweating away your precious free time. The weight loss is extremely quick and easy. The shortest HCG diet protocol lasts only 30 days and elicits weight loss results from 20-30lbs. The longest lasts for 60 days and can help you lose up to 60lbs of body fat. You will not find results like these outside of the HCG diet community without resorting to surgery. The 500 calorie diet comes with a list of approved foods. This list is contains no starches or sugars and consists of lean proteins, vegetables and fruit. If you’ve been looking for a way to eat healthier, but weren’t sure where to turn, this is it. Once you’re finished with the HCG diet, you might just find that you’ve acquired the knowledge necessary to continue eating a healthy, balanced diet in order to maintain your weight loss.
The health benefits of losing weight are myriad. Weight loss has been shown to reduce the effects of type 2 diabetes in those who have been diagnosed, sometimes even eliminating them altogether. It’s easier to breath after losing weight as well. Also, your blood sugar levels will often stabilize and your risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes will be dramatically reduced. Not to mention you will feel and look excellent!
Most people interested in weight loss can safely and succesfuly do the HCG diet but we do require an initial consult in our office to determine if this diet is right for you. For example, patients who have had their gallbladder removed may not do as well on the diet without some specific instructions that would only pertain to them. It is our goal to make sure that we educate the client about the diet so that they can reach their goals safely and quickly.
Controversy Most of the questions regarding the plan can be answered by keeping the following information in mind: It is important to remember that the HCG diet is not a lifelong eating plan. It is however the fastest, most effective way to lose fat that has ever been developed. We like to call HCG a “motivational kick start” to a healthier lifestyle. We not only educate our patientson how to effectively utilize HCG but also how to eat after they have completed the program. We also like to note that the diet rules that apply while on HCG do not apply to a person who is not on HCG. Trying to follow such a restrictive diet without the aid of real pharmaceutical HCG would not be recommended. It is therefore of the utmost importance that anyone who decides to try the diet makes sure that they are using HCG from a reputable source. Our HCG comes directly from a compounding pharmacy here in town that tests all of their HCG for accurate potency and mix the formula in what is known as a “clean room” to ensure that what you purchase is the safest, most effective product on the market. They also preload all of the syringes so that there is no need for our clients to mix anything or draw up anything at home, they are ready to go as soon as you fill your prescription.
