The actual hormone HCG must legally be prescribed by a licensed doctor.
Many people are purchasing homeopathic HCG from the Internet. It is doubtful that homeopathic HCG will have the same results as the actual hormone HCG. Homeopathic HCG is diluted to such a point that it is completely unreasonable to expect any level of actual HCG hormone in homeopathic preparations. It is the hormonal action of HCG that is thought to produce weight loss along with a restricted calorie diet.
The benefits of homeopathic HCG weight loss are solely the result of a 500 calorie diet. It is not uncommon for people to come see me post homeopathy HCG/500 calorie diet with their hair falling out and trouble with metabolic recovery. Our programs starts at 1000-1200 calorie diets. People report not being hungry on this program and typically are very pleased with their weight loss, typically 3-5 lbs a week. I’m yet to experience any metabolic down regulating affects as in a 500 calorie homeopathic diet programs….homeopathic HCG is not the hormone HCG.
Our Modified 500-1,000 Calorie HCG Diet:
To be successful in losing weight it must first be determined by a medical professional if there are any possible medical conditions that are in the way of weight loss. A series of questions followed by appropriate lab work (if recommended) will determine if there are medical issues that need to be addressed. Sound nutritional counseling will ensure keeping the weight off for the long run.
There is no need to start with a 500 calorie diet. Our modified HCG program blends a limited caloric intake (starting at 1000 calories) with a ketogenic diet (20-60 grams of carbohydrates a day).
When the body consumes low carbohydrates it must start breaking down fat reserves to meet blood sugar needs. Ketogenic diets mean limited bread, rice, pasta, potatoes and corn. Of course this also means absolutely no soda, candy or processed snack foods. Fruit and complex vegetable carbohydrates are allowed in limited quantities.
In our modified HCG program we teach you to count calories to achieve HCG success while also counting carbohydrates to achieve ketogenic success. HCG causes increased utilization of fat reserves during a limited caloric intake while the ketogenic shift towards decreasing carbohydrates further demands the use of fat reserves. This combination is a winning rapid weight loss program. This initial approach is usually all that is needed for most people to lose between 3-5 lbs a week.
