hCG Diet Plan FAQ
The hCG diet plan is a medically supervised science-based program designed to enable you to reach your weight loss goals quickly and effectively, so that long-lasting results stick.
We’ve assembled this section based on the most common questions our clients bring to us during our initial consultations.
Q. What is HCG and how does the hcG diet plan result in rapid weight loss?
A. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone present in both men and women, but which is produced in great amounts in pregnant females. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic function. In non-pregnant individuals, research suggests HCG similarly increases the metabolism. The injection in conjunction with a low calorie diet tricks the body to release and burn your stored fat. Taking HCG triggers the hypothalamus (a part of the human brain to use stored, abnormal fat) for its main energy source.
This allows your body to burn 2000 calories a day for fuel. When fat is converted to calories there are vitamins, proteins and minerals contained in the fat tissue which are given back to your body.
Q. Will I be hungry on the hcg diet plan?
A. Once the hCG has entered your body, you will find that you will not be hungry. Often you’ll find it difficult to eat the daily maximum number of calories that you can eat. In fact, it is common that dieters on the hcg diet plan feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that daily calorie limit!
You don’t feel hungry and run down because your body is now running on your fat reserves, and the hypothalamus is beginning to reprogram and reset your body to a new lower weight so that you maintain the weight loss and don’t experience a yo-yo effect. HCG combined with a low calorie diet allows your body to shed off all the unnatural locked fat reserves and keeps your muscle and structural fat in order.
Q. Will I see a medical doctor?
A. Absolutely, once you have completed the free consultation and decided to proceed with the program your next meeting will be with a licensed medical doctor. They will review your medical history and lab results to make sure you can safely go on the hCG Rapid Weight Loss program or offer you safe alternatives.
Q. Is taking hCG safe?
A. HCG has been used in weight loss for over 50 years. The American Society of Bariatric Surgeons says “no significant harmful effects of HCG injections have been described in the medical literature.”
Q. What are some other benefits of using the hCG diet plan?
A. HCG is great because it turns your bodies stored fat into energy. In addition to feeling more energized while eating less, using hCG may result in lowered cholesterol, the speeding up of your metabolism and the resetting of your appetite.
Q. Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day on the hcg diet plan?
A. HCG weight loss studies have shown that weight loss following the protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In doing so, the weight loss comes directly from fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body.
Q. Can’t I buy hCG on the internet?
A. Studies have shown the homeopathic hCG you purchase on the internet doesn’t contain sufficient hCG for lab equipment to determine its existence. Homeopathic hCG contains such a low does (if any) of hCG that it does not require any government certification like prescription drugs.
Comprehensive Weight Clinic and Medical Spa only provides patients with pharmaceutical strength hCG which is only available with a prescription from a physician. In addition, homeopathic hCG contains many additives, where pharmaceutical hCG is nothing but pure hCG.
Q. Do I need to purchase any special food?
A. No, all the food you can eat can be found at any grocery store.
Q. Can men and women do it?
A. Yes. hCG is not a growth hormone therefore will not result in any side effects in men.
