HCG, Human Chorionic Gonadatropin, is a hormone released during pregnancy that causes the body to burn excess fat for energy when combined with a low calorie diet. When we go on a traditional diet, we can lose as much as 45% lean body mass for each pound of weight loss. HCG is rapid fat loss while sparing lean body mass and suppressing appetite.
What's involved in the HCG program?
The HCG program is rapid weight loss, and the appetite control component can make losing weight easier, but the Low Calorie Diet has very specific guidelines that you must adhere to. Though it is easier than dieting on your own, that does not mean it is easy. You must be committed and have a great desire to obtain the weight loss, because there will be challenging times. We are here for you! You will have weekly appointments at Healthy Living, and we provide phone and email support as well.
What should I expect at my first appointment?
We perform baseline body composition assessments on each patient to establish your cellular health, lean body mass, fat mass, hydration and ratio of muscle to frame size. We record baseline measurements, walk you through your workbook and answer any questions you may have about the diet.
Prescription strength, not homeopathic.
At Healthy Living is we only provide pharmaceutical grade, prescription strength HCG for your weight loss program. It is administered as an intramuscular weekly injection or as daily subcutaneous injections, whichever works best for your lifestyle. Our HCG is compounded in the U.S. by an F.D.A. licensed pharmacy, and is regularly tested for quality and purity.
