We have all experienced the countless weight loss programs, new fab diets and thirty minute workouts that promise to blast fat and inches. The HCG weight loss program is different. By combining a balanced, flexible and low calorie diet with HCG injections from Tyler Wellcare, Tyler, Texas patients can experience a healthy lifestyle thanks to this medical weight loss program.
What is HCG Weight Loss?
HCG, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by the body only during pregnancy that regulates the nutrients given to the fetus.
HCG was used in the treatment of obesity disorders by a British physician and Ph.D. A.T.W. Simeons of the renowned Salvatore Mundi International Hospital in Rome, Italy over a 16 year period starting in the 1950s. Dr. Simeons’ clinic had a 97% success ratio. Dr. Simeons’ hypothesis was that the HCG mobilizes fat stores into the bloodstream. He noted clinically that appetite was suppressed as his patients lost weight, despite the restricted diet. He then developed a list of foods that optimized the weight loss.
This medical weight loss program has enjoyed a recent resurgence in popularity.
HCG weight loss works by following a diet, HCG injection schedule and drinking lots of water. HCG allows the body to tap into its stored fat for maximum utilization. With a lower caloric intake, 500 calories daily, and HCG injections, your body will be more reliant on its stored fat. Tyler, Texas patients should not be concerned with the low caloric intake. The HCG injections make the amount comfortable, and patients will have continued medical support from our physicians during this medical weight loss program.
What can Patients Expect from HCG Weight Loss?
Patients will follow a 500 calorie diet of fruits, vegetables, proteins and water. Exercise can be performed but nothing more vigorous than a brisk walk is recommended. In rare cases, some patients report mild headaches.
Patients entering the medical weight loss program will have a physical exam by Dr. Janine Islam and a basic blood panel drawn to look for renal, hepatic or thyroid disease. Those with a history of reproductive cancers, such as testicular, prostate, breast, endometrial, ovarian or uterine, should not enter the program.
If the patient is qualified, a prescription for injectable HCG, to be filled at a reputable pharmacy, is given to the patients. Patients can opt to have our team administer the injections to them during the week, however all patients so far have found it easy to self-administer the injections.
