Who is eligible for this diet?
Both men and women can follow the HCG diet.
What is it?
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone made by the placenta when women become pregnant. Experiences have shown that this hormone helps facilitate weight loss when done in combination with a 500-calorie diet.
How and when do you take HCG?
The patient must administer their HCG injection first thing in the morning. Missed doses could cause complications with the program, so please contact the office if this happens.
Where does it go?
An insulin syringe will contain the patient's appropriate daily dosage, and patientswill have to self-injected it into the abdomen. Patients will be trained on how to safely and accurately self-inject.
Why would you do it?
This is a rapid weight loss diet. A patient that does the program can lose anywhere between 20-30 pounds if they successfully follow their 500-calorie meal plan. We also provide weekly vitamin B12 Plus shots and biweekly (twice a week) Lipo B shots to help patients maintain their energy throughout the week.
How does it work?
HCG can function as a natural appetite suppressant, meaning it can help patients successfully follow their 500-calorie diet. Patients will binge eat the first 2 days of the program and begin their diet on the 3rd day. This is because we want the body to try to absorb enough nutrients and store enough energy to last you through the rest of the program.
Patients have the option to add 2 additional weeks (15 days) to their 30-day program, but know that this is not mandatory. Once the patient has finished their program, they are required to take a month-long break before another round, regardless of if they did a 30 or 45 day program.
Patient progress may begin to plateau after 3 weeks, and this is quite common, but patients may still continue losing fat. We advise patients to continue the program if this happens.
We highly encourage patients to create their own 500-calorie diet using additional online resources.
