Is losing weight a major challenge for you? Have you been on that rollercoaster ride of weight loss plans and extreme exercise only to see those pounds come back again time after time? You are probably no stranger to yo-yo diets, taking extreme measures to knock off some pounds. You might have even reached your goal and then the weight started going up on the scale again. Worse yet, nothing you do may make any difference. It can be so discouraging that you are ready to give up. You can win the battle of the bulge. HCG diet can help you to quickly take the weight off and keep it off.

Understanding What the HCG Diet is All About

The HCG diet is a medically prescribed diet that revolves around two components. It includes injections of human chorionic gonadotropin and a reduced-calorie diet. Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone. It’s produced in a pregnant woman’s body naturally and helps the baby to develop.

When you are injected with HCG hormones, it will curb your appetite. You won’t be hungry, which makes it much easier to eat fewer calories. Our doctor will decide whether you should drop down to 500 calories a day or have as much as 1,500 in a day. Every patient is different and your diet will be customized to fit you.

What are the Benefits of HCG Injections?

In addition to acting as an effective appetite suppressant, HCG injections help all of your hormones to stay on track, making your metabolism work more efficiently for you. You’ll also burn fat without eating away at your muscle. In a short amount of time, you’ll be able to see results. When you can see the change happening before your eyes, it will make it easier to stay motivated and keep going until you reach the finish line.

Combine the HCG Diet with Healthy Eating and Exercise

For the best outcome, you need to make healthy choices in what you eat on a daily basis while you are receiving your HCG injections. You’ll also want to include exercise as part of your regimen. As the weight comes off, it will be easier to get your body moving. With each pound that melts away, you’ll be a step closer to a slimmer you. Our doctor will give you recommendations once you achieve your goal weight so that you will be able to maintain your weight.
