Through a natural hormone called hCG coupled with an easy to follow diet, you can lose up to 23 pounds in 23 days and many, many inches from the hips, stomach, neck, arms and thighs. This program is designed for men and women and our patients at Advanced Life Clinic typically use a pound a day on this physician supervised weight loss program.
hCG is a hormone naturally produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is the pregnancy hormone; with levels doubling every two days during pregnancy. hCG allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we only use a very small amount of hCG to capitalize on this same mechanism. Using hCG in this way does not mimic pregnancy and it is safely used by both men and women.
hCG is extremely safe. All women experience very high levels during the nine months of pregnancy with no adverse effects. The small amount we use for weight loss has absolutely NO side effects.
hCG works to mobilize fat utilization by the body only when there is a significant decease in calories and fat. A starvation state must exist for hCG to work. For weight loss, we use a very low calorie diet to trigger hCG to help rid the body of fat.
Yes, normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies store fat and our metabolism slows down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy but when we combine a very low calorie diet with the physician supervised use of hCG, the hormone signals the body to use stored fat for energy and eliminates excess fat reserves. It’s a natural process, so no ill effects on your metabolism will result.
You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and limiting your fat intake. Because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat causing cellular metabolism to slow down; in the long run, it would make gaining weight easier and contribute to decreased bone density and muscle mass. By using hCG with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated. The low calorie diet is vital in preventing immediate refilling of emptied fat cells. You benefit by preferentially getting rid of excess fat without affecting your bones and muscle.
If you have tried different diet programs without success, now is the time to try our hCG physician supervised weight loss program. For more information on hCG or any of our physician supervised weight loss programs, call (256) 882-6555.
