hCG Diet

Chambers Clinic offers hCG Diet, an effective weight loss program for those who have trouble losing weight

What is the hCG Diet?

The hCG Diet, which has been around for decades, is a structured low calorie, doctor-supervised diet program that incorporates the injection of a naturally occurring hormone called hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). It is a short duration program with a treatment time of between 23 and 40 days that can often promote incredible weight loss – up to 30 pounds in one month. Due to the nature of the diet, patients can lose this weight on hCG without feeling hungry or tired, which are the most common complaints with other diets. Compliance is typically an issue with many diets as well; with Chambers Clinic’s hCG diet program, you partner with a doctor who keeps you on track.

How does the hCG Diet work?

The hCG diet is very strict and limits you to specific foods. The patient self-administers an injection of hCG daily during their time on the diet – typically into belly fat. This process promotes fat breakdown up to 1500 calories per day; that fat is used to fuel the body, which provides energy and curbs hunger cravings. Patients are weighed in the office each week and are provided with additional support from the doctor, if needed.

Before it ends, we also counsel patients on maintaining healthy diet and lifestyle after the hCG plan so the weight stays off can be sustained long-term. If it is necessary for additional weight loss, the patient may be prescribed further rounds of hCG. In order to avoid immunity to the effects of the hCG solution, patients must take “maintenance time” between rounds.

Who is the hCG diet good for?

The hCG diet may be for you if you are having trouble losing weight or even just those last few stubborn pounds. Often a person that continuously exercises and eats healthy may for some reason still have trouble losing weight. You may not understand why you’re not losing weight or why you are not able to get rid of these few extra pounds. The hCG Diet can help to address imbalances in metabolism and restore the body’s optimum ability to balance its metabolism and hormones naturally.

The hCG diet also can be a good plan for those with sedentary lifestyles to jump start a health program. Because of the calorie restriction, some forms of exercise are discouraged during the hCG diet; this enables you to ease into more healthy habits while losing the weight that will benefit their overall health and metabolism after the diet is over.
