The hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, weight loss plan has been popular for many years. This diet involves taking a very low-fat, low-calorie food in conjunction with regular injections of hCG hormone to achieve fast, sustainable weight loss. HCG is a hormone that is naturally present at high levels in early pregnancy and helps maintain the production of estrogen and progesterone.

When used for weight loss purposes, hCG works by curbing the appetite and reducing the urge to eat. The hormone makes it possible for a person to stick with a low-calorie diet without experiencing extreme hunger. HCG triggers the breakdown of stored body fat and releases as much as 2,000 calories a day. Instead of depleting important reserves, the body burns off the excess fat by to meet its energy needs. As such, hCG can teach your body to lose weight without suffering extreme hunger or fatigue and keep it off after the program is over.

HCG is a prohormone, which means that it creates more hormones when it’s present in the bloodstream. Hormone deficiency in a person undergoing menopause or having thyroid problems can cause weight gain or difficulty losing weight. The hCG diet makes it possible to reset your body and teach it to lose weight and keep it off.

HCG Diet Phases

The hCG diet is divided into three phases:

Loading Phase: This phase introduces you to the hCG hormone in the form of injection, drops, or sprays. You’ll also eat plenty of high-fat foods for two days. This phase prepares your body for the task ahead.
Weight Loss Phase: You’ll continue taking hCG hormone and stick with a specific 500 calorie diet for 3-6 weeks.
Maintenance Phase: With this phase, you will stop taking the daily hCG hormone and gradually increase food intake but not beyond 1500 calories a day. You must avoid sugar and starch for 3 weeks.

Benefits of the hCG Diet

  • Stronger slimmer body
  • Decrease in cravings
  • Redistribution of fat
  • Enjoy naturally induced energy
  • Increased metabolism
  • Targets hard to reach fat
  • Lose inches
  • Reduced hunger

Lose Fat, Not Muscle

The hCG hormone elevates the lower hormones in the body, creating an anabolic state that makes it easier to build muscle. It also counteracts the muscle breakdown associated with dieting. Every weight loss program should be focused on losing fat, not muscle. With crash diets, rapid weight loss is usually a result of muscle loss, which is just horrible for your body shape and can negatively affect your metabolism. When used together with a low-calorie diet, hCG is designed to help an individual lose pure fat, enabling them to become leaner, wear smaller clothing sizes, and maintain their weight loss.

If you have tried many weight loss diets but nothing has worked for you, it’s time to consider the hCG diet. Contact North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Care Clinic at 480-513-2888 or book an appointment online and learn how the hCG weight loss program can help lose weight safely and effectively.
