HCG Weight Loss Program

Many people are having difficulty understanding the HCG diet.

So what is HCG?

HCG Diet in Florham Park, NJHCG is a natural substance that is produced in the human body during pregnancy.

Although it is a natural substance, it is classified as a drug and available only by prescription.  You must get HCG from a medical doctor with a prescription.  The FDA has not approved HCG to be used in weight loss treatment but it is not illegal.  According to the FDA, it is in fact, legal for doctors in America to prescribe medications for purposes that are not yet approved by the FDA.

The HCG diet is an effective weight-loss program that requires a diet of about 500 calories a day.  Many people may think that if you consume 500 calories a day, you will still lose weight.  Yes, this is true, but by practicing only the diet part of the plan, you might lose energy, muscle mass and experience extreme hunger episodes.  The HCG hormone provides patients with energy, quicker fat metabolism (not muscle depletion), and acts as an appetite suppressant.

We offer our patients several HCG program options such as our effective HCG 23-day program or our successful HCG 40-day program.  Patients will meet with Dr. Li on a regular basis to track their weight-loss progress and in order to address any questions or concerns they may have.

It is important for patients to take the necessary supplements and prescription medications in order to maintain a healthy nutritional balance.  Our clinic will make recommendations, based on your medical intake package or blood work, of supplements that will help you achieve an even greater weight loss.  It is also imperative that you continue to take any necessary prescription medications that your primary doctor has ordered.

So if you’re wondering whether it is safe to combine medications and supplements with the HCG diet, it is safe, when under the care of our certified physicians.

Side Effects Associated with the HCG Diet

Researchers have found that HCG can actually help the body burn fat, and can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy low calorie diet and a moderate exercise routine.  This discovery confirmed the work of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, who used HCG in accordance with a 500-calorie per day diet to direct the bodies of overweight people to burn fat instead of muscle.  Although HCG is associated with pregnancy, it can safely be used by both men and women that are looking to achieve successful weight-loss or maintenance.
