What is the hCG Diet?

Utilizing the power of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, the hCG diet offers safe and rapid weight loss for healthy patients who want to lose 20 pounds or more.  The program combines a VLCD (very-low-calorie diet) with hCG injections to reset your metabolism, which will help you maintain long-term weight loss.

The hCG Diet is typically divided into three phases:

  1. Loading phase: Start taking HCG and eat plenty of high-fat, high-calorie foods for two days.
  2. Weight loss phase: Continue taking HCG and eat only 500 calories per day for 3–6 weeks.
  3. Maintenance phase: Stop taking HCG. Gradually increase food intake but avoid sugar and starch for three weeks.

What is hCG and what function does it have in the body?

HCG is a protein-based hormone produced during the first three months of pregnancy that tells a woman’s body that it’s pregnant.

HCG helps regulate the production of important hormones like estrogen and progesterone, both which are essential for the development of the embryo and fetus (Source).[/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][mk_page_section padding_top=”0″ padding_bottom=”0″ sidebar=”sidebar-1″][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1563832747619{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]
