What Is HCG Diet Therapy & Can It Help You Lose Weight?
HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that develops during the early stages of pregnancy. The hormone is responsible for maintaining the proper levels of progesterone that are necessary for a healthy gestation. It also sometimes triggers the release of stored fat from a pregnant woman’s body, especially in times of malnourishment. The nutrients pulled from the stored fat are then able to sustain her fetus. This unique feature of human chorionic gonadotropin is what led Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons to believe that a similar reaction could be prompted in the bodies of non-pregnant women and men who wanted to lose weight.
Today, proponents of Simeons’ research have helped HCG injectable therapy programs become a popular weight loss aid and Pharmacy Rx Solutions, in conjunction with sister company, Suncoast Radiopharmacy Services (a U.S. licensed compounding pharmacy), has proudly provided prescription human chorionic gonadotropin therapy programs since 2006. Our therapy programs have helped individuals nationwide and begin following a specific diet protocol.
Following an HCG diet therapy program requires a high level of discipline and involves:
- Undergoing injectable therapy to maintain certain HCG levels for 20 or 40 days
- Adhering to a strict, 500-calorie-per-day diet
- Drinking at least one gallon of water daily
- Avoiding sugary and starchy foods
While the caloric restriction is what will help you lose from one-half to one pound per day, the HCG therapy may help limit or eliminate feelings of hunger, fatigue, and lightheadedness, which commonly plague individuals following other low-calorie diets.
