Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG)
Finally, there is a way to lose all the weight and fat you want with the help of a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, hCG for short. Both men and women have this hormone naturally, but it is produced in greater amount during a woman’s pregnancy.
Using hCG for dieting dates back to the 1950s. It is a protocol designed by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. By using hCG with a low calorie diet, it is not uncommon to lose 30 pounds of fat in just 30 days!
Important note: physician-prescribed hCG is far more effective and safer than over-the-counter or online products. Our team at MedEye Aesthetic Center will assess your overall health to determine if you are a good candidate for this weight loss program.
How hCG Works
Injections of hCG trigger the hypothalamus which mobilizes your stored fat and increases your metabolism. Thousands of calories in stored fat are released – then used by the body or expelled. The hypothalamus gland moderates the thyroid, adrenals, fat storage, and more importantly, your metabolic rate. For weight loss, only a very small amount of hCG is required to capitalize on these effects.
Using hCG for dieting does not mimic pregnancy; it can be safely used by both men and women. Men, in fact, tend to lose more weight than women when taking hCG. If you are a man and are wondering if this hormone/protein will affect you negatively, you should know that physicians give this hormone both to men and women for fertility reasons in very large doses (5,000IU to 6,500IU). For dieting only 150IU to 200IU is used per day.
What to Expect with our hCG Plan
At MedEye Aesthetic Center, our hCG protocol consists of taking your prescribed amount of hCG and following a restricted 500-800 calorie diet for a minimum of 21 days to a maximum of 42 days. Don’t worry, the hCG will flood your body with calories so you won’t feel hungry or tired like you normally would on a diet. In the rare case that your hunger is not controlled, you may opt to take appetite suppressants prescribed by your physician. The most important factor in losing the weight is to stick to the recommended protocol that we have explained: changing the recommended foods could cause negative effects on your weight loss goals.
Why hCG Boosts Weight Loss
For dieting, a very small amount of hCG is used in conjunction with a low calorie diet. When fat is metabolized into calories, there are vitamins, proteins and minerals contained in the fat tissue which are given back to the body. You don’t feel hungry and run down because your body is being fueled by your fat reserves.
You may ask, “Wouldn’t I lose the weight following such a low calorie diet anyway?” Yes, you would lose weight, but not from your stocked, locked fat! When a person tries to reduce calories to lose weight, they will first burn their normal reserved fat. Because the body has a protective mechanism that is designed to store fat in order to prevent death and starvation, instead of burning fat, the body begins conserving it. Only as a last resort will the body let go of its abnormal fat reserve. hCG used in conjunction with a low calorie diet triggers your hypothalamus to mobilize the locked fat out of its storage locations, so that its available to use. This causes thousands of calories that have been locked to be available and
released as fuel; as a result, you don’t feel tired and hungry with this diet. Your body takes on a new shape because your abnormal fat is now being consumed as fuel; structural fat and muscle tissues are ignored.
hCG dieters report that they feel better and have more energy because of these effects. These results are from using real hCG, not the homeopathic brands sold on the internet.
How Much Weight Will You Lose?
Women don’t always lose the weight as fast as men. If you are carrying more than 50 pounds of fat, then its normal to lose more weight per day compared to someone who is closer to their ideal weight. Half a pound to a pound of weight loss per day without exercise are typical results if you follow the hCG diet carefully. Some people have lost more than the average. We do not inflate the weight loss numbers so please feel confident to calculate the program suitable for you according to your personal weight loss goals and average lost per day, depending on your sex, and how much weight you need to lose.
Side Effects of hCG
Because hCG is a natural substance produced in the human body, there are only mild side effects that are possible such as:
- Slight water retention
- Tenderness of breast tissue
