Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced during pregnancy. HCG is a pro-hormone, meaning that it helps the body make more hormones. Hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reasons for weight gain, so, when used as an adjunct to a low-calorie diet, hCG can help you lose weight.

It does so by suppressing appetite, increasing metabolism, and eliminating fat deposits in the body, particularly around the abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, neck, and face. Additionally, hCG keeps you from losing muscle while you diet, which is a common downside of rapid weight loss, and can harm your body, shape, and metabolism. A slower metabolism also means that those who go on low-calorie diets without hCG often quickly regain all the weight they lost and then some. It also takes them significant work to build back the muscle that has been lost.

Many of our clients find that they lose up to 30 pounds in 40 days on our hCG program.

How Does It Work?

HCG injections are the only effective method for introducing hCG into the body. Don’t believe anyone that says that hCG supplements, oral drops, or sprays work, because the only thing they will burn is your wallet. Our hCG medical weight loss program involves pairing a daily fat burner injection of hCG with a low-calorie diet consisting primarily of lean proteins such as chicken and fish. Since hCG is a powerful appetite suppressant, restricting what you eat isn’t difficult. You will eat and finish what you like but you will find yourself eating significantly less and craving healthier options, leading to long-lasting lifestyle changes. You will also take a weekly vitamin injection to increase your metabolism and restore your energy.

Most of our patients lose an average of one to three pounds per day on our hCG rapid weight loss program.

Lose Weight Fast With HCG

Rapid weight loss is possible, thanks to the fat-burning, metabolism-boosting power of hCG. We offer two hCG programs, our short 23-day program and long 40-day program. Each patient also receives a complimentary six-week maintenance program to ensure that they maintain their weight loss once their calorie intake is normalized. Looking to get started?
