How You Can Lose Weight Rapidly with HCG

Goetz with CaptionThe HCG weight loss plan, developed in the 1950's by Dr. Albert Simeons, has recently gained in popularity due to its ease of use and the dramatic weight loss results it provides. This amazing plan requires no exercise and can result in the loss of up to a pound a day. Daily doses of the Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin hormone (HCG) make it possible to follow a low calorie diet without experiencing hunger, weakness or, most importantly, the muscle loss normally associated with low caloric intake. At Advance Health Services we are happy to offer prescription

HCG injections and diet counseling for our patients. We provide HCG injections because studies have shown that the more inexpensive oral drops and sprays available at stores are ineffective. The oral forms of HCG are broken down by the acids in the stomach and are severely diluted by the time they reach the bloodstream where this completely natural human hormone works its magic. 

Study Shows Fat Loss Instead of Muscle Loss 

Dr Simeons was studying pregnant women in India who were, by circumstance, on low calorie diets. He found that instead of losing muscle tissue as would be expected, these women were losing from the fat reserves in their bodies. His studies found that the HCG hormone, produced by all women during pregnancy made this possible. It turns out that one of the functions of the HCG hormone is to protect the mother's body during pregnancy. Dr Simeon's went on to test his theory on young men with pituitary problems. When low doses of HCG were combined with a low calorie diet, the result was the same: loss of fat tissue instead of muscle.

Now, when we say low calorie diet, we are talking about very low. Five hundred calories for most people. Of course, anyone can lose weight by consuming so few calories, but not without extreme hunger, fatigue and dangerous muscle loss. That is where the HCG hormone comes in. The effect of the hormone is to reduce your hunger to such a degree that you can function normally and comfortably while eating very little. Furthermore, HCG will allow you to feel energized throughout the day, and, as mentioned before, causes the body to burn fat instead of muscle tissue. 

The regimen is simple. You will receive one injection of the HCG hormone each day for as long as eight weeks. The length of the treatment plan depends on the amount of weight loss desired. Aside from that you will stick to a low calorie diet with some restrictions. Here is an overview of the variety of foods you will be eating, but your doctor will go over the diet with you in detail. 

  • Two meals a day, lunch and dinner
  • Grilled or broiled lean meats, chicken and fish
  • Every meal includes a serving of vegetable and fruit
  • All of the water coffee and tea you desire
  • Breadsticks and Melba toast
  • No butter or oils

There are restrictions, but you will find plenty of variety and won't find yourself repeating the same meals. This diet is also low on carbohydrates. If you consume plenty of carbohydrates now, it is a good idea to gradually reduce your intake before starting the diet. You will miss them less once they are reduced.

Heavy Exercise Is Not Recommended 

The HCG plan actually restricts exercise. It is always a good idea to keep active, but, while on the plan, exercise should be kept light. Walking, biking and equivalent activities are the most you should do. Any heavy workout routines will need to be put on hold. This is due to the low carbohydrate content of the diet you will be following and the body's use of carbs when physically active.

Your doctor at Advance Health Services will perform a physical evaluation before you begin the HCG plan and closely monitor your weight loss and caloric intake during. You will receive personalized guidance on all aspects of the plan including nutrition and physical activity. Call Advance Health Services today to experience the easy, rapid and natural HCG weight loss system. You are only weeks away from being slimmer and healthier.
