The HCG Diet was created by Dr. Simeon in 1954. The nature of this approach is a rapid and safe weight loss. The use of HCG does not increase weight loss, but rather favors the loss of weight as fat, resulting in a more favorable remodeling of the body, slower re-gain and improved mood.
The HCG diet has been improved by the addition of the following: DHEA, a hormone which helps burn fat; a weekly injection of Lipovite which not only improves detoxification and energy but turns on fat loss and the incorporation of the new K1 Whole Body Vibration Machine.
How Much Weight Should I Expect To Lose?
Expected weight loss is 10% of body weight. The program is 6 weeks active phase and a 4 week maintenance phase.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is HCG?
A. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is secreted by the placenta during pregnancy. In early pregnancy HCG helps to increase progesterone in order to maintain the pregnancy.
Q. How long has HCG been used in weight loss?
A. Dr. Simeone first used HCG in 1954. He noted that patients on HCG lost more fat and reshaped their bodies.
Q. Why is HCG being recommended for my program?
A. Since 1990, there has been a number of studies suggesting that HCG may not contribute to weight loss, but seems to stimulate a greater amount of fat loss and patients on HCG had considerable less irritability.
Q. How does HCG work?
A. HCG seems to increase lipid breakdown and decreases fat formation in the liver and adipose tissue. HCG has a beta endorphin subunit which stimulates the formation of endorphins and raises serotonin levels resulting in an uplifted mood.
Q. How is HCG administered?
A. HCG is a very large protein, therefore it is only absorbable if given by an injection. To date there is inadequate proof of transdermal or sublingual absorption.
