HCG Diet

In the USA, 80% of people that go on a diet to lose weight end up gaining all of it back – and more. In short, going on a “diet’ is a great way to eventually weigh even more. The problem is that it’s not strictly about weight. It’s about your body composition – the ratio of lean tissue to fat tissue in your body. It’s also about function. When you are at your proper lean-to-fat mass ratio your body functions optimally and you can maintain a healthy weight. Through appropriate assessment, an effective protocol can be crafted to help you reach your healthy weight goal. Contact Dr. Cameron today!

What is HCG and how does it work?

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadatropin) is a hormone produced in the body. It is made during pregnancy and the levels double every two days. This hormone allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we use only a small amount of HCG to capitalize on this same mechanism. Using HCG in this way does not mimic pregnancy and it can be safely used by both men and women with no side effects.

Is HCG safe?

HCG is extremely safe. All women experience very high levels during pregnancy with no adverse effects. The small amount we use for weight loss has no side effects.

If HCG works so well for weight loss, why don’t pregnant women lose weight?

HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. For weight loss, we use a very low calorie diet to trigger HCG to help rid the body of fat.

Would I lose the same weight eating a very low calorie diet without HCG?

You can lose weight by eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes cellular metabolism to slow down, and over time it would make gaining weight easier because of the lost bone density and muscle mass. Only by using HCG with a low calorie diet, is extra fat mobilized for energy. You benefit by preferentially getting rid of excess fat without affecting your bones, muscles or metabolism.

The HCG diet is very low calorie, will I get hungry?

Because HCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So although you are taking in fewer calories, your body can access the energy you have stored in fat cells. After about 2 days, many patients notice a significant decrease in their appetite. Overall, most people have plenty of energy and feel great while on the program.
