The hCG diet originated decades ago and has gotten a great deal of attention over the last several years.
Dr. A.T.W Simeons published a study in the 1950s that claimed patients using hCG and a restricted calorie diet lost an incredible amount of weight quickly.
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone of the female reproductive system and increases in pregnancy. While it is not FDA approved for weight loss it is legal with a doctor’s prescription and has been used effectively across the country. The hCG diet injections allow the body to distribute its effect on fat cells rather than lean muscle. This causes the body to take energy from excess fat stores, enabling weight loss while on a calorie restricted diet.
Focused Women’s Healthcare is prepared to educate you on the hCG diet and help you determine if it is a good choice to help you jump start your weight loss program. Our main goal is lifestyle modification that will lead to sustainable weight loss and a healthier you.
