What is The HCG Weight Loss Plan and How Does it Work in Wooster, Ohio?

The HCG diet is one of many different variations of losing weight, but what makes this diet different is the ability to maintain the weight loss and keep it off for good. HCG itself is a hormone produced during pregnancy. Injections of this hormone, when combined with a low-calorie meal plan, produce the impressive weight loss of up to a full pound per day.

The interesting part of this diet combination is that it significantly alters your body and signals it to burn off fat instead of muscle. A traditional weight loss diet would lead a person to lose both fat and muscle. This makes HCG unique in that it can target fat and help you maintain your muscle mass.

A key component of the HCG diet, and one that makes it extremely controversial, is that it requires the person to eat a max of 500 calories per day. Critics argue that eating such a large deficit alone is going to cause the rapid weight loss that this diet touts. They aren't entirely wrong. The person does lose weight quickly, but the daily injections of HCG hormone are what makes the weight loss sustainable. The body can decipher fat loss from muscle loss and causes only fat loss to happen.

One important factor to remember when it comes to the HCG diet is that providers were previously dosing the HCG based on something called the Simeons Protocol. This led to the random and potentially confusing and dangerous dosing of the hormone for patients. This has since been discontinued, along with some of the other erroneous factors of the HCG diet.

Patient's were previously restricted in their exercise routines and forced to follow several rules that made little sense to some patients. With the revision of these rules, the HCG diet is now safer than ever and can provide you with healthy and sustainable weight loss. It's always a good idea to talk with a doctor prior to starting any new diet or exercise routine, but it's important to note that weight gain is often the result of low levels of hormones. HCG can help boost several hormones and result in feeling better overall.

Weight Loss Q & A

What causes excess weight?

Weight fluctuations usually have to do with an equation involving the calories going in and out of the body. Inactivity and consuming more calories than you need per day leads to weight gain.

Weight gain isn’t always a product of diet and exercise habits, though. Other factors contribute to weight gain as well, including:

  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Medication side effects
  • Mood changes
  • Slowing metabolism as you age

Thyroid disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome, and Cushing’s disease can also cause weight gain. Thyroid hormones and cortisol cause the body to hold onto fat.

What are the health risks of being overweight?

Excess weight causes an increased risk for the following conditions:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Kidney problems
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Some cancers

Extra weight also causes mobility issues and places extra pressure on joints. If you have a condition like arthritis, for example, you may experience more pain in the joints than you would if you lost weight.
