A naturally produced hormone in pregnant women, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or HCG came to the forefront in the 1950’s when it was first introduced as weight loss option for children. It was noted that theses children began losing body fat and gaining muscle. Over the last fifty years or so, more research and studies have been conducted into the use of HCG. With modifications made to avoid the extreme calorie and protein restrictions of the original weight loss regime of the 1950’s, the safe and effective use of HCG is on the rise. The results have been outstanding for many of our patients. If you are considering the use of HCG in Lake Stevens, this is the scoop.
Basically, HCG increases the body’s ability to burn fat while retaining muscle. As this diet is designed for the rapid loss of weight, our patients work closely with our experienced and qualified medical team of physicians and staff to develop a safe set of goals. Our patients continue to maintain direct contact with one of our physicians when taking the HCG injections for weight loss.
With little to no exercise, it is possible to lose a pound a day on the HCG diet. Gaining that weight back following the program can be disappointing to say the least. With this in mind, we continue to work with our patients to create and effective maintenance program. Taking into account factors such as stress levels, physical activity, social habits as well as any sensitivity to foods, we can make recommendations to help keep that weight off.
