How HCG Facilitates Weight Loss
- Posted on: May 30 2018
Weight loss and weight management have become essential topics, not just because we have a stronger desire to look good throughout our lifetime, but also because excess weight presents the opportunity for numerous disease cycles. During this time of year, many men and women entertain thoughts of body-contouring treatments like liposuction and CoolSculpting. There is another approach that also warrants consideration: medical weight loss.
Did you know that it may be possible to lose a pound a day on the right program? We are pleased to offer medical weight loss for patients of our Henderson cosmetic surgery and medispa practice. One of our two programs includes hCG, a fat-burning stimulator that was first recognized for its benefits over fifty years ago.
What is hCG and How Does It Work?
HCG is a hormone that the female body produces during pregnancy. Doctors believe that this hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is responsible for balancing metabolism during the first trimester of pregnancy. Further studies on this chemical have found that recombinant hCG, the type that is used in medical weight loss, is an integral component of heterodimer. This is the 237 amino acid that mimics the structure of luteinizing hormone (LH).
Luteinizing hormone is a pituitary-produced chemical that assists with a number of natural endocrine functions, including the production of endogenous testosterone. This function points to a critical benefit of hCG injections in weight loss programs.
The hCG Diet
The hCG diet is not new. It’s been around for decades and has helped many people overcome the vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting. You could call it a reset for your metabolism. This short-term, very low-calorie diet, enables patients to lose a significant amount of weight very quickly. However, a low-calorie diet (less than 1000 calories a day) usually coincides with intense hunger and loss of muscle tissue. Including hCG injections into the Simeon Protocol diet plan can significantly reduce these side effects.
The inclusion of hCG injections in the Simeon Protocol enhances the mobilization of abnormal visceral fat. Visceral fat is the kind that stubbornly sticks to the hips, belly, and thighs. Additionally, because hCG supports testosterone production, your body will preserve muscle tissue as fat breaks down and the body eliminates it.
