THE HCG (HUMAN CHORIONIC GONADOTROPHIN) DIET PROGRAM
The hCG (Human Chorionic gonadotrophin) Diet Program is a targeted and permanent method of healthy and effective weight loss that was developed in conjunction with one of the world’s leading doctors in the field of weight loss, Dr Albert T W Simeons.
WHAT DOES THE HCG DIET PROGRAM INVOLVE?
The program involves daily injections of hCG accompanied with a 2100 kilojoule (500 calorie) restricted diet. Using hCG for weight loss unlocks abnormal stored fat reserves, allowing the body to use them for energy.
This diet is a clinically proven, medically prescribed diet that is considered the most healthy way to achieve weight loss and body shaping.
The hCG unlocks specific fat storage areas:
- Men – abdomen
- Women – abdomen, arms, thighs, bottom
WHAT IS HCG?
hCG is a hormone naturally produced in large amounts by the placenta during pregnancy. It is believed that hCG serves an important function in providing a stream of energy and nutrition for the developing baby by allowing access to stored fat during periods between meals.
HCG FOR WEIGHT LOSS
hCG’s use with a strict calorie controlled diet to induce weight loss was first trialled in the 1950’s and has proven to be a highly effective method.
hCG mobilises stored fat to be used as energy, reduces cravings and re-sets a new stable weight. The supplements provide all the required nutrients as well as fat burning components, while the dietary recommendations provide a specific combination of protein and carbohydrates for optimal fat mobilisation.
Using hCG for weight loss unlocks abnormal stored fat reserves, allowing the body to convert the fat into energy.
hCG is used to:
- target and release abnormal fat stores, eliminate food cravings, establish a new stable weight.
HOW DOES HCG WORK?
Under normal circumstances it would not be sufficient to sustain brain and body functions at optimal levels while on a very low calorie diet; however when hCG is circulating in the system, the low calorie diet allows your body to access your fat stores to gain all of the nourishment it requires. By accessing your abnormal fat stores, hard-to-shift weight can be lost from areas such as the stomach or buttocks, thighs and upper arms.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
As a guide, patients who need to lose 7 kg or less require a 3 week program. When a patient has more than 7kg to lose, the treatment takes longer, and a 6 week program should be undertaken with a review upon finishing.
IS CALORIE RESTRICTION REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN WEIGHT LOSS?
There is no continued calorie restriction required. In fact, patients must return to regular calorie intake following treatment, and no medication is required.
IS IT SAFE FOR MALES TO USE?
hCG is naturally present in both men and women. It is not a sex hormone and does not have any side-effects relating to a user’s sex characteristics or function. hCG is a hormone in the same way as insulin, cortisone and adrenalin are hormones.
As a guide, patients who need to lose less than 7 kg, require a 3 week program. When a patient has more than 7kg to lose, a 6-week program is recommended.
On completion of the program, you must return to a regular calorie intake according to your Basic Metabolic Rate at your goal weight. No further medications are required. You should not regain your weight if simple recommendations are followed.
