Patients can lose up to 3-5 pounds per week with daily HCG injections. Our HCG program includes 2 Lipo B injections weekly along with your initial physician consultation. These injections are an excellent addition to HCG as they help the liver process fat out of the liver which is very beneficial with a more rapid weight loss program like HCG. The physician will review the HCG protocol with you along with the restrictive HCG diet. The success of this HCG diet is very dependant on the patients being very diligent in following the protocol and food guidelines. Typically patients are on the HCG diet for 6 weeks though this can vary depending on the desired weight loss. Due to the low caloric intake, exercise is not recommended.
Typically the HCG protocol consists of a 500 calorie diet accompanied by daily HCG injections. The average HCG dieter experiences rapid weight loss averaging 0.5 to 2 pounds per day. In addition to the loss of unwanted, abnormal fat and unhealthy toxin elimination, the true benefit of the HCG diet is its ability to help modify the dieter's relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes.
Your HCG diet will begin with 2 "load days" in which you will begin your HCG injections along with a very high calorie, high fat intake diet. These 2 days prior to starting your very low calorie HCG diet plan you need to consume a log of food and eat often. This is done to create a slightly higher, false "baseline" of calories. The concept is that once HCG is established in the system, calories to sustain are consistent with the miniumum "normally" used. Those calories are then pulled from your fat stores to sustain you during active weight loss on HCG. We know loading on those calories can seem very scary for most who are trying to diet but this is a key part of the success of the HCG diet! This process will help you in the long run to feel less hunger and lose weight faster so have fun with it!
After those 2 HCG loading days, the HCG diet plan begins with the stricted foods supplied by our physicians. The daily HCG injections will continue through the entire program. Once a patient has completed the HCG injections, they will begin Phase II. Phase II, after the injections, is equally as important as the weight loss phase. Carefully following the instructions during the HCG "wash out" will help your body maintain the weight loss you worked so hard to achieve. This important stage is believed to reset your metabolism to a high normal state to help maintain weight loss.
