The HCG diet limits you to 500 calories a day for 8 weeks while taking HCG, either by injection or by taking a "homeopathic product", such as oral drops, pellets, or sprays.
Maintaining a lean, healthy weight is a vital component of healthy aging and longevity. Aside from the aesthetically undesirable effects of fat, there is actually a profound health threat from fat, particularly the kind stored deep in the core of your body (known as visceral fat). This visceral fat produces lots of inflammation and causes clogging of the arteries, liver dysfunction and hormonal imbalance in both men and women.
Our doctors have training and expertise in nutrition and weight loss. While a healthy eating program and fitness regimen is the key to long-term weight loss, we do offer options to help you shed pounds that have become difficult to drop with age and hormonal imbalance.
One such approach is the HCG diet. This unique weight loss program utilizes a prescription hormone and very low calorie diet to produce weight loss of a pound a day.
It is generally safe and well tolerated and produces excellent results, especially for those with:
Because the diet is very low carb and virtually no cereal grains it is great for blood sugar control and most importantly this eating plan teaches you healthy food combination habits for when you transition off this diet.
Our physicians will develop an eating program based on food combinations, caloric needs, and energy expenditure, to help you balance your hormones, prevent regaining the weight and keep your lean body weight for optimal longevity and wellness. For more aggresive therapy along with a pure HCG diet, our doctors can formulate an individulized therapy from a compounding pharmacy (i.e. Phentormin).
