HCG Diet For Weight Loss

supervised diet that has been medically developed

Prestige Cosmetic Clinic in Calgary features the HCG Diet for weight loss. HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is the hormone women produce when they are pregnant.

A Little History About HCG

Dr. A.T.W. Simeon

In the 1950’s Dr. A.T.W. Simeon discovered that HCG could safely be used to accelerate weight loss for both women and men. He established HCG takes 2000 to 3000 calories per day of stored fat into the bloodstream where it becomes available for metabolism. Because of the additional nutrients in the body, a very low caloric diet was possible for weight loss without encountering the associated symptoms of hunger, fatigue and weakness.

Dr. Simeons reported after 30 years of offering HCG as an aid for weight loss, no adverse effects for patients tested during this period of time. Furthermore, his evidence suggested this weight loss program to be safe for both men and women.

Does It Work?

Yes. The recommended caloric intake on the HCG diet is 500 calories. This intake will allow for rapid weight loss and the body to lose the excess stored fat and it should be noted that it is not the HCG working as the catalyst for weight loss, but rather the diet which makes you lose weight.

The lower caloric intake is possible without suffering the typical symptoms of hunger. As fat is consumed, abnormal fat deposits such as, potbelly, double-chin along with fat on the thighs and hips begin to disappear.

How The HCG Diet Works

Because it is believed the HCG hormone in the bloodstream reduces appetite (the hormone is responsible for pregnant women feeling nauseous in the early sages), many patients claim HCG reduces the feelings of hunger. This loss of weight is then accelerated due to HCG signalling the body to release fat from storage. As with any diet we strongly recommend and encourage proper types of exercise during and after the program.

Who Can Benefit From The HCG Diet?

This is a supervised diet that has been medically developed to suit just about anyone looking to lose unwanted fat, both male and females are candidates for this program.

Are All HCG Hormone Diets Similar?

No. Recent studies have shown that pills or drops of HCG taken orally cannot be absorbed by the mouth which is why this type of HCG diet has shown to be ineffective in some studies. HCG injections are recommended for success using this diet.
