Lose weight quickly without feeling hungry!
hCG has been successfully used for decades to help people lose weight, especially in stubborn areas like the belly, hips, thighs and buttocks.
We combine this with a very low-calorie ketogenic diet to encourage the body to use fat stores.
The two work synergistically with each other–hCG mobilizes the fat while ketosis burns up the fat your body is releasing. Most of our patients lose 10-15 pounds on our 26-day program and 20-25 pounds on our 43-day program. We have been using the hCG program for 14 years and performed over 15,000 treatments.
This program is phenomenal by itself but works even better when combined with semaglutide for additional weight loss and long-term maintenance.
hCG is an acronym for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy, and it causes a continuous release of fat, especially from abnormal fat stores (hips, thighs, buttocks and belly). This hormone, when used in conjunction with a ketogenic diet - a diet completely devoid of sugars and starches - forces the body to use fat instead of carbs as its primary source of fuel. This turns the body into a fat-burning machine.
A small percentage (about 15%) experience a little constipation and/or menstrual irregularity.
Yes, but we do recommend a 4-week break in between programs to allow for maximum efficacy.
The numbers differ between men and women. Realistically on the short program (26 days) women can expect to lose 10-15 pounds and men 15-20 pounds. On the longer program (43 days) women will lose 18-23 pounds on average, while men will lose 30-35 pounds. When a ketogenic diet is combined with hCG, less than 10% of the total weight loss is from lean body mass (i.e. muscle) whereas typical calorie restriction diets result in a 30% loss of lean body mass.
hCG has not been approved by the FDA for weight loss. However, as long as hCG is administered under the supervision of a D.O. or M.D. then the use of hCG for weight loss is perfectly legal and safe.
Yes. Not only is hCG safe for men, but our average male patient loses nearly twice as much as our average female patient.
Although touted as the “500-calorie diet” this is a complete misnomer. In actuality, you can eat as much as you want, as long as you follow our guidelines. Therefore appetite suppressants are not needed, but are available as needed.
Unfortunately, medical weight loss, with the exception of bariatric surgery, is not covered in the state of Georgia. However, flex spending accounts (FSA) and health savings accounts (HSA) can be used to cover this treatment.
In our clinical experience, we have performed over 20,000 treatments with a 90% success rate. 70% of those who have been successful on the diet stay within 2 pounds of their last injection weight for more than a year.
No. Pharmaceutical hCG cannot be purchased without the authorization of a physician (M.D. or D.O.).
Your doctor is correct. A typical calorie-restricted program that involves the intake of only 500 calories a day can be very dangerous to your health. The hCG protocol (hCG + ketosis) is not a mandatory 500-calorie/day diet. Your body will dictate exactly how much food you need. Our hCG program is not based on calories but rather on food type and portion control.
Yes, in theory this would work IF you could physically stay on the diet for any significant length of time. You would lose the same amount of weight but you would lose a greater percentage of lean body mass in the process, and it's likely you would experience more negative side effects that would tempt you to end your diet.
