HCG Weight Loss
How it works:
HCG is a natural hormone which stands for human chorionic gonadotrophin. HCG breaks down abnormal body fat, making it available as fuel to your body, and causing you to lose inches. At the same time, it protects your body's good fat and muscle. That means that you can go on a low calorie food plan and lose weight rapidly without the typical problems such as muscle loss.
Additionally, a positive effect is produced on skin tissues, which become more elastic to accompany the loss in body weight, assuring a harmonious corporal contour. Loose, sagging skin is not evidenced, even when weight loss is enormous.
The low calorie diet followed in our HCG diet plan is made up of healthy, nutritious food. So even though you are restricted to consuming only 500 calories those calories are from lean meats, fresh vegetables and fruits that you will shop for at your local market and feed to your family.
No bad moods. No headaches. No weakness:
The use of HCG in the weight loss program not only affects where you lose weight, but also how you feel while doing it. HCG is believed to generate endorphins in the human body, and these endorphins generate feelings of well being, increased energy and increased ability to focus. During treatment with HCG you will be able to continue an active lifestyle, including exercise (although exercising is not a condition for achieving results). You will feel energized and in good moods, and should not experience hunger pangs.
The HCG plan delivers an average weight loss of about 4 pounds a week with no recovery of weight in the period following treatment. This speed allows patients to visualize results almost immediately, acting as a strong motivator to strictly adhere to the treatment
Eliminating the rebound effect:
Fat gains weight faster than muscle. This is a known fact. So when you change the proportion of body fat to muscle in your body during treatment with the hCG you are actually reprogramming your metabolism and resetting the hypothalamus. Once the treatment with low calorie diet ends (a minimum of 21 days depending on the weight loss objective), patients go through a “maintenance” period where the level of calories is restored, but all ingredients that could be stored by the body as fat are restricted. In this way, the body realigns itself to a normal eating routine, but does not increment the fat storage, which greatly diminishes the risk of rebounding back to the original weight.
Monitoring by a Medical Doctor:
Carolina Integrative Medicine’s HCG weight loss plan insures patients continuous monitoring and follow-up by a medical doctor. Ongoing exchange with our medical professionals from the initial consult through the weight loss and maintenance phases helps with motivation and constancy of the course of treatment. This ultimately increases the effectiveness of the program and goes a long way toward guaranteeing that as our weight loss patient you will be happier, healthier and able to maintain your new life style.
Other benefits of the HCG Program:
Because weight loss is concentrated in abnormal fatty deposits, treatment under HCG delivers increased reduction of risk factors associated with obesity and overweight in patients. Patients experience reduction of arterial pressure (blood pressure), lower cholesterol, stabilized blood sugar, and improvements of arthritis, psoriasis and lipodystrophies. Improved sleep and improved mood are also benefits.
