The HCG Weight Loss Program – Is It Right For You?

With the new year already here and the holiday festivities no longer tempting you to eat, drink, and be merry on a regular basis, it is never too late to start planning your weight goals for 2019!

You may want to consider the very effective, low-calorie HCG weight loss program as an option. This program was developed by a British researcher, Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons. He discovered that human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (HCG), the hormone produced when women are pregnant, given as an injection or taken orally, along with a low-calorie diet program, helped his patients lose weight.

This program is not just about the low calorie diet because if you restrict your calories enough, it makes sense that you would lose weight. The beauty of this program is that it allows you to lose weight while not feeling hungry, and helps to "reset" your metabolism, so the effects of the weight loss can be long-lasting.

The program entails reducing your caloric intake of carbohydrates, sugars, alcohol, and fats, while introducing a small dose of HCG either orally or through injection. The tight dietary guidelines can be the hardest part of the diet altogether, because there is no “cheat day” or snacking on this diet. However, the results are dramatic, up to a pound a day, as the body uses the HCG to burn hard-to-lose fat. The success of this program is always best when you partner up with a clinician who is trained to help you navigate through your weight loss goals so the results can last a lifetime.

If one of your goals for 2019 is to lose weight and you are willing to stick to the restrictive diet, then you are probably good candidates for the HCG program. Individuals who are not candidates for this weight loss program are women who are pregnant or nursing, anyone with active gallbladder issues, gout, insulin-dependent diabetics, and anyone who does not have adequate time to commit to the entire program, including maintenance phase.
