The hCG Diet
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a protein-based hormone that tells a women’s body she is pregnant. This hormone has also been found to boost testosterone in men. Studies suggest that taking hCG daily, either sublingually or intramuscularly, combined with a very low-calorie diet (VLCD), is a safe and effective weight loss plan for both men and women. Only those patients who undergo a full physical, complete with blood work, EKG, and are deemed good candidates will be eligible for this program.
The program is offered in a 23-day or 46-day regimen. It is dependent on your weight loss goals. In addition to following the 500 kcal or 800 kg plan, you will be required to attend weekly appointments for weigh-in, measurements, a Lipo injection, and discuss any issues or concerns you may have.
