HCG DIET

hCG DIET FORT LAUDERDALE

WHAT IS THE HCG DIET?

 

The hCG diet is a medical weight loss program which targets stored fat reserve and converts the fat into energy your body can use. On the hCG Diet (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) you will lose pounds and inches while maintaining your muscle mass.

 

OUR APPROACH TO THE HCG DIET

 

We use a modern and realistic approach to the diet as the original protocol is over 70 years old. The original diet by Dr. Simeons calls for only 500-600 calories a day. Our modern approach allows the patient to consume up to 700-800 calories and still lose weight effectively.

Every patient will be seen and assessed by a licensed physician who specializes in weight loss and the hCG Diet. Your hCG medication will be provided by our fully licensed partner pharmacy. You will receive a detailed hCG guide and all your supplies in your hCG kit.

 

You will first meet with the weight loss nurse who will take your:

 

  1. Starting weight

  4. Muscle mass
  5. Vital Signs (blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate)
  6. Draw labs* – patient may provide any recent labs performed by a primary care physician.

 

MEET WITH OUR WEIGHT LOSS PHYSICIANS

 

After your meeting with the nurse, you will then meet with the weight loss physician who will take a detailed medical history and perform a medical exam. The hCG doctor will then review your eating and exercise habits and determine if you are a candidate for the hCG Diet. Your weight loss doctor will then review the hCG Diet with you in detail and answer any questions you may have.

HCG DIET PHASES @ SLIM HEALTH CENTER

PHASE 1 | FAT LOADING

This is the fat loading phase where you can eat whatever you like for a couple of days. (1 day on the 23 days cycle or 2 days on the 45 days cycle.) It’s not recommended to completely gorge on these days but we do recommend to load up on good fats and eat a meal that you really enjoy because for the next few weeks you will be following a low calorie, low fat, low carbohydrate diet. This is done to refill your fat reserve in the body. You will take the hCG injections these days.

PHASE 2 | LOW CALORIE DIET

This is the low-calorie portion the hCG diet in which you will follow the specific diet plan of approved foods and continue to take your hCG injections. At SLIM Health Center, we follow a modernized approach of the hCG diet and most of our patients are allowed consumption of 700-800 calories a day.

PHASE 3 | MAINTENANCE

This is the stabilization or maintenance phase. THE MOST IMPORTANT PHASE. This is the phase where you can slowly start introducing new foods back into your daily diet. This is the most important phase because this is the phase where you keep the weight you lost off.

HCG DIET FAQ’S

WILL I BE HUNGRY ON THE HCG DIET?

You will feel the most hungry in the first few days of the diet. Your appetite is naturally reduced during the diet so only the first few days may be difficult. If the diet is followed correctly, you should feel energized during it’s duration.

WILL I BE ALLOWED TO EXERCISE?

Since you will be on a low-calorie diet, it’s recommended to only do light exercises such as walking or mild cardiovascular activity. Adding 2-3 ounces of protein before a workout is beneficial to help maintain muscle mass if working out. Remember to stay hydrated if your incorporating mild exercise. Never push the limits and always remember to listen to your body.

WHY ARE HCG INJECTIONS USED ON THE DIET?

HCG releases fatty acids and lipids from the actual fat cell. The nutrients are then entered into the bloodstream and utilized by the body. This process results in stubborn fat loss while maintaining muscle mass.

WHERE DOES MY HCG COME FROM?

Your hCG injections will come from a fully licensed pharmacy that specializes in weight loss medication compounding. The pharmacy must follow sterile processing and testing. It is never recommended to order hCG from the internet because you never know what you are really injecting into your body.

HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE ON THE HCG DIET?

Everyone responds to dieting on different levels. From our extensive experience, the average weight loss we see is anywhere between ½ to 1 pound a day. Key factors include how strictly you follow the meal plan you are given and how overweight you are, to begin with.

IS IT SAFE FOR MEN TO BE ON THE HCG DIET?

Yes, men can also safely be on the hCG diet.  The dosage of hCG prescribed is minimal and men will not be feminized on the diet.

WHAT IF MY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAUS DURING THE HCG DIET?

It is common for patients to experience a weight plateau. This can happen in any weight loss program. There are many factors that can cause a stall in weight loss. For example, when a woman is menstruating there tends to be water retention during the first few days. Under eating can also cause a weight-loss stall. We have different recommendations if a weight loss plateau should occur.
