hCG and successful weight loss
What is hCG?
hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone that is naturally produced by a woman’s body during pregnancy to help the development of the embryo and fetus. hCG injections are often given to women with fertility issues to induce ovulation and to maintain high levels of Progesterone (another pregnancy hormone) that is critical to the success of the pregnancy.
How does hCG help me lose weight?
In the 1950’s a famous British endocrinologist by the name of Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons discovered that when hCG was injected into boys with low levels of the male hormone testosterone, the boys lost body fat. What Dr. Simeons had discovered was that at low doses, HCG mobilized fat breakdown. At the same time, hCG protected the patient from the muscle loss that often accompanies low-calorie diets. He also determined that hCG helped to suppress appetite and combat the decreasing energy levels that patients often feel while eating very few calories.
hCG weight loss program
The hCG program at Whitby Medspa provides a multi-faceted approach to weight loss. The diet consists of high calorie restriction combined with hCG and Vitamin B12 injections. The calorie restricted diet is well-balanced and optimized for rapid weight loss. The hCG injection help control food cravings and prevent muscle loss, while the B12 injections help with fat metabolism. This combined with weekly weigh in, monitoring and coaching deliver measurable results. Whitby Medspa offers 2 programs – a short 23 day program or a longer 40 day program.
How much can I expect to lose?
In our experience, most of our patients lose between 2 to 5 pounds per week, with men typically losing weight more rapidly. You will experience weeks where more weight is lost and weeks where you may plateau. Sticking with the diet without cheating is the key to maximizing results.
Will I keep the weight off?
Once the program is complete, as with any diet, if you don’t eat right, in time you will regain the weight. However, if you stick to our maintenance program which uses the same foods but allows more calories per day, you can be sure that you will maintain you weight.
