How hCG Works for Weight Loss?
One of the most successful diets on the market is the hCG injection diet. Patients are able to see rapid weight loss of up to a pound a day*! This medically supervised program is built around a low calorie diet coupled with small doses of a hormone called hCG. Contact Revive Clinic to learn more.
Here’s how it works:
A pound of fat contains 3500 calories. If a person needs to lose 10 pounds you must be negative 35,000 calories to lose it. Sounds simple- the only real way to lose weight is to restrict calories. But here is where it gets complicated; if you restrict your calories to 500 a day, you place your body in starvation mode. Your body is designed to try to hold onto fat as much as possible, thus causing your body to break down muscle for the protein it contains.
This is where hCG serves as an important tool to lose weight fast.
hCG or human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone produced by the placenta after implantation. The hCG allows the fetus to utilize the mother’s fat cells for energy to continue growing. It is this ability of hCG to preferentially use fat cells for energy during caloric restriction that we use it for a successful weight loss program.
During the low calorie diet, the hCG allows one to utilize excess fat stores for energy while maintaining muscle tissue. When muscle is lost from the body during a low calorie diet, it can damage the metabolism and put you at risk of regaining the weight.
After the hCG diet, you will notice your appetite has changed, your eating behavior has changed, and of course your body has changed. This is the perfect opportunity to transition to a healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight.
With a medically guided hCG diet, Revive Clinic can help you reach your weight loss goals*. Read on to learn more about the benefits of hCG diets, or contact us today for a FREE consultation!
