What is the HCG Diet?

The HCG diet is a weight loss protocol designed for fast, safe weight loss. It uses hormone therapy in conjunction with a precise eating plan to reset your metabolism. Under the guidance of a qualified professional, the HCG diet allows you to lose a significant amount of weight in less time than most diet plans.

How Does the HCG Diet Work?

During pregnancy, a woman’s body releases human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a hormone that has been shown to increase fat burning while decreasing appetite. The HCG diet combines HCG supplements, in the form of sublingual drops taken under the tongue, or injections, with a nutrient-rich, low-calorie diet.

The HCG diet has a specific protocol involving the following three phases:

  • Loading phase: In the first phase, you'll begin taking HCG. You will also “load” your body’s storage by eating a high-calorie diet that is rich in healthy fats for about two days.
  • Weight loss phase: You’ll continue taking HCG but decrease your caloric intake significantly, under the direction of your doctor. This phase usually lasts 3-6 weeks.
  • Maintenance phase: When you have reached your target weight, you’ll gradually stop taking HCG while slowly increasing your caloric intake. After about three weeks, you’ll be eating a healthy diet that will allow you to maintain your weight loss results for the future.

What are the Benefits of the HCG Diet?

Because HC helps you cope with feelings of hunger, you can comfortably restrict your calories further than you might be able to on other diet plans. For this reason, the HCG diet allows you to lose weight faster than other programs. The fat burning boost from the hormone also helps you see results quickly.

The HCG protocol is not a long-term eating plan, and it should always be followed under the supervision of a qualified professional. The expert team of providers at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness have the experience and training to ensure that your experience with the HCG diet is safe and effective, so you can enjoy lasting results from your hard work and dedication to your weight loss program.
