What is the HCG Diet and Are Shots for Weight Loss Right for You?

Mark Neumann

You may have lost weight in the past, only to regain all of it back plus more. You do your best tracking what you eat, exercising, and drinking plenty of water every day but still the weight won't stay gone. Instead of blaming yourself, blame your body. When you reduce your caloric intake for more than a few days, your body pulls from muscle instead of fat for energy. Eventually, you get so hungry that you resume your regular eating habits and losing weight becomes impossible. The HCG diet is a medical weight loss program that can finally help you achieve the results you desire.

What is the HCG Diet?

When a woman is pregnant, her body produces a hormone called HCG to nourish herself and her developing baby. This hormone protects both mother and child in cases of malnourishment and an insufficient intake of calories. In 1950, Dr. Alfred Simeons of England studied impoverished pregnant women in India and was shocked when they delivered healthy babies. After much research, Dr. Simeons discovered that the HCG hormone produced in pregnancy could help people lose a significant amount of weight quickly.

Dr. Mark Neumann supervises this medical weight loss program. This is just one thing that makes it so different from other plans. You receive a thorough health review before you begin and then work with Dr. Neumann to develop a low-calorie eating plan. The results are dramatic when used in combination with HCG injections. While you must account for age, gender, and health differences, some people lose as much as one pound per day following the HCG diet.

The HCG Diet in Action

Dr. Neumann conducts a thorough health review on every patient before giving him or her medical clearance to start the HCG diet. He then works with you to establish a daily calorie target. The first phase of the program lasts up to 40 days. For the first few days of the HCG diet, you can eat anything you want. In fact, you should eat as much as possible since this helps to reset your metabolism. By the third day, you start eating within your calorie range. Dr. Neumann will provide you with several meal plans designed with the HCG diet in mind.

In addition to following a low-calorie diet, you receive an HCG injection each day for the first phase of the plan. The hormone itself does not make you lose weight, but it changes the way your body uses food for energy and burns fat. You will be taught to do a simple injection during your visit. These injections will be done at home.
