What is HCG? How does it work? Is it safe? All your answers are here!

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin – HCG – Ultimate Fat Burning Diet

Lose thirty pounds in less than six weeks! Not an easy diet, but if you’re committed to this program, you can lose an amazing amount of weight in a very short period of time.

We have all experienced diets that just don’t work. Becoming disappointed and frustrated along the way with minimal or no weight loss makes the journey almost unbearable! Most diets simply reduce calories and have a detrimental effect on your metabolism. On those diets, you burn your normal fat reserves first. That is the fat your body actually needs for normal function. You’re only getting to the fat cells you want to get rid of after you’ve depleted your normal fat reserves, and by the time, you feel hungry, fatigued, frustrated and generally give-up!

Our diet uses HCG, a natural hormone that simulates the body to mobilize and burn fat cells for energy. While our diet does restrict calories, with the HCG hormone, your body immediately begins to burn unwanted fat cells and it does it without making you feel hungry or fatigued. The results are amazingly fast! Both men and women can lose a pound or more a day.

This diet has received a lot of attention in the media and although it is safe, it should be administered and monitored by a Medical Professionals. As with most popular products and diets, there are many variations out there that can be unsafe and not effective. Here at Renewed Beauty Specialists, we take your safety, health and weight loss very seriously. Michelle Francis RN, BSN will monitor your progress and will be available to answer your questions every step of the way. Her goal is to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

The Dead-End Cycle of Dieting:

Most people who have dieted have tried many different programs with no successful results. Most diets deal with reducing calories, and this causes the client to spiral downward in the pit of obesity. When an overweight/obese client tries to reduce calories to lose weight, they will first burn their normal reserve fat cells. The last fat cell on the list to be utilized is the abnormal fat, or the fat that causes people to be overweight. This type of dieting can cause clients to feel exhausted and to lose fat in the wrong places (from face leading to sagging skin versus belly, hips or thighs). This is where the HCG diet comes in and is set apart from other diets. Yes, the calories are restricted, but when this is done in combination with using the hormone HCG, the body is able to successfully burn fat. Not only is the body now burning fat, but also it is burning the abnormal fat, so people are able to lose it in the areas that they are seeking, such as belly and thighs.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Is HCG safe?

Yes, it is very safe. Large amounts of HCG are released during pregnancy without any harmful side effects. The amount of HCG used in weight loss programs is only a fraction of what is naturally released in pregnancy. The only contraindications for use of HCG are any hormone related cancer, an allergy to HCG, or precocious puberty in teenagers.

Why don’t pregnant women lose weight if they have large amounts of HCG circulating in their bodies?

The hormone HCG works to mobilize and burn fat for the body to use when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. The body must go into starvation state for the HCG to work. This is why it is a protective mechanism in pregnancy, especially for women who do not know they are pregnant, and live in poor economic status where they may not have enough food available to them. Most pregnant women do not fall into this category; therefore they do not lose weight, but instead gain weight appropriate for the growth of the baby. For weight loss, we use a very low calorie diet to stimulate HCG to help rid the body of fat.

Will the low calorie diet cause my metabolism slow down?

The normal response to a low calorie diet (seen as starvation by the body),  is to store fat and slow metabolism to ensure survival. However, when HCG is used in conjunction with a low calorie diet, the body’s excess fat reserves are burned as energy to support its needs. This prevents our bodies from storing fat and our metabolism from slowing down during the short period of time while on the Vitamin B12, MIC and HCG.

If I eat a very low calorie diet without HCG, will I lose the same amount of weight?

No, because without HCG, your body goes into a “starvation mode”, as mentioned above. In this mode your body is programmed to store fat instead of burning it, in order to create reserves to make it through the period of starvation. Then when diet ends, the body will store even more fat as normal calorie consumption begins, to prepare for the next possible period of starvation. This is the common cycle people tend to fall into when dieting, and this is the reason they never keep the weight off. With HCG, your body is stimulated to burn fat during low calorie period, so it does not fall into the cycle of storing fat as reserves. This will keep you from storing unwanted fat during the diet, and from having a rebound weight gain after the diet has ended.

Will I get hungry on the very low calorie HCG diet?

This will vary for each person. Some people get hungry, and some don’t. The HCG is stimulating your body to burn fat as energy, so your body’s energy needs are being met. This will help to reduce hunger in most people; because the body has plenty of energy to use (hunger is a reflex to let you know your body needs energy).  Therefore, the body does not need to stimulate the hunger reflex as a response to low energy in the system.

Will HCG interfere with any medication I am currently taking, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera Injections?

HCG does not interfere with any medications, including birth control. There will be NO side effects as far as HCG and medications are concerned.

Will there be any changes in my menstrual cycle while I am taking HCG?

Clients should not experience any changes in their menstrual cycle, increase the chances of becoming pregnant or affect your ability to become pregnant while taking the hormone. It is not an acceptable treatment for a woman who is already pregnant or trying to get pregnant, due to the low calorie diet. Even HCG is supposed to be a protective mechanism during times of starvation for pregnant women; we do not want to run the risk of a woman losing her pregnancy due to a low calorie diet.

Why are some people calling the HCG the “Weight Loss Cure”?

HCG is also being called the “Weight Loss Cure”, because after taking it for weight loss, it programs your body to use stored fat for energy when calories are reduced for a period of time. It helps maintain your weight and not regain the pounds you’ve lost. This generally the opposite of what most people have experience with dieting, and this leads them to think of the HCG diet as the cure to weight loss problems.

How much weight will I lose on the program?

The average amount of weight loss is between 10 to 25 pounds for three week interval. This varies from individual to individual, and the closer you are to your body’s ideal weight, the slower you will lose weight. The slowest loser usually loses about a ½ a pound a day.

Does weight loss slow down after the first month?

Most people will have a large amount of weight loss in the beginning, and then they begin to level off or plateau. This does not mean they stop losing weight, only they are losing it at a slower rate (but mostly importantly, they are still losing). Some patients opt to do a second round of HCG, and during this time period, they can have another large drop in weight, followed by leveling off stage as well.

Can men use the HCG program?

Yes, men can safely use the program, as long as they do not have a hormone dependent cancer (such as prostate cancer). Now, HCG is not a sex hormone and its action is identical in men, women, and children. Through an indirect path from the brain, HCG regulates menstruation and facilitates conception but it never virilzes a woman or feminizes a man.

HCG is a prescription medication ordered under the directorship of Dr. Kim Harris and administered by Michelle Francis RN, BSN, and CLT. Renewed Beauty Specialists – 602- 909 -2180.
