HCG Program

What is HCG?

Program Details

HCG, which stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, is a natural hormone found in the body. HCG enables a patient to lose up to .5 to .8 pounds a day by using the injections in combination with a low calorie diet. HCG stimulates the hypothalamus and burns body fat while protecting lean muscle mass and organs.

A patient whose goal is to lose 30 or so pounds, or more, would benefit most from this program. The program itself is a treatment that spans a time period of 23 or 45 days. Over the counter HCG drugs oftentimes pale in comparison to HCG injections administered by licensed medical professionals.
Each week of this program, the patient will take two LipoPlus injections and meet with the weight loss counselor to learn how to eat properly on the HCG protocol. In addition, the counselor helps the patient transition to healthy eating and meal plans after HCG.

These sessions are aimed to educate, train, support and motivate patients in creating and adhering to a healthy diet and exercise plan. The goal is to help patients reach their ideal weight, teach them how to maintain that weight and achieve a beneficial lifestyle change.
