HCG Weight Loss
Safe and effective weight loss is a focus for many people in the Modesto area. Unfortunately, many consumer diets can be harmful and keep you on a never-ending cycle of weight gain and loss. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers hCG weight loss for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is hCG Weight Loss?
You’ve probably heard all the warnings about how low-calorie diets can be dangerous and counter-productive. Either your caloric intake is so low that you are starving your body of the energy it needs to function appropriately, and/or you are reducing metabolism and muscle mass to the point that weight loss is reduced or even reversed!
Those days are over. With our new hCG weight loss program, you will experience what physicians have recognized as the most effective weight loss program for women and men!
Benefits of hCG Weight Loss
The hCG weight loss program combines a low-calorie diet with pain-free, subcutaneous injections of hCG. Normally, if someone were to start a low-calorie diet, he or she would experience hunger, cravings, fatigue, feel miserable, lose structural fat and muscle mass.
Loss of structural fat is a problem because it provides a layer of cushioning to the body, most importantly around vital organs, soles of the feet and palms of the hands. Loss of muscle mass is equally problematic when dieting and can give people a gaunt, unhealthy look. Loss of muscle mass also reduces the body’s caloric requirements, negating effectiveness of the low-calorie diet and reducing overall weight loss.
hCG solves both problems by turning the body onto abnormal or unwanted “depot” fat, enabling rapid loss of body fat while retaining muscle mass and structural fat. Aside from losing weight, reducing abnormal fat is beneficial in terms of overall health since it is responsible for the onset of a wide variety of chronic diseases.
How Does hCG Weight Loss Work?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by women during pregnancy. hCG maximizes the function of the body’s control centers in the hypothalamus, one of which controls the movement and distribution of fat throughout the body. hCG mobilizes abnormal or unwanted fat and releases it as a source of energy. hCG not only helps people lose body fat but also helps people lose fat around “problem areas” that are resistant to typical diets and exercise.
hCG is safe and effective for men and women at any age after puberty. hCG is not a sex hormone and does not affect the ovaries but can increase testosterone production in men.
What to Expect from hCG Weight Loss
With the hCG weight loss program, patients typically lose one pound of abnormal fat per day, occasionally more. Patients may remain on the program for 40 days. If target weight loss is not reached within 40 days, patients may repeat the program after a six-week break.
The injections are administered with a micro-sized insulin syringe. Physicians will instruct patients how to perform the injections properly. Injections can be administered anywhere on the body with the best areas being the front of the thighs and stomach.
Patients administer hCG injections and consume a high-calorie, high-fat diet for the first two days of the program. Skipping this step significantly reduces the total amount of weight lost during the program.
On the morning of Day three, the low-calorie diet begins.
One serving of fruit: apple, orange, one-half grapefruit or handful of strawberries.
For Lunch and Dinner
One serving of meat: 100 grams (pre-cooked) veal, lean beef, chicken breast, venison, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, shrimp, or tuna (packed in spring water). All visible fat must be trimmed or removed. Eggs are not allowed as a substitute.
One serving of vegetables: spinach, tomatoes, celery, beet-greens, chard, chicory, lettuce, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, or cabbage.
One serving of fruit: apple, orange, one-half grapefruit, or a handful of strawberries.
One Melba toast or breadstick.
The fruit portion from lunch or dinner may be eaten as a snack between meals.
Spices and Seasonings
Salt, pepper, vinegar, mustard powder, garlic powder (not salt), sweet basil, parsley, thyme, marjoram, and lemon juice.
Drink 60 to 80 ounces of water daily (about 10 glasses). Other beverages include coffee (black) and tea. No diet drinks are permitted as they contain artificial sweeteners that are unhealthy and inhibit weight loss. Patients should weigh themselves each morning to monitor progress.
