Weight Loss Q & A

EVU Center

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss at EVU consists of HCG and metabolic diets combined with treatments such as:

  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Lipotropic injections
  • Amino acid injections
  • Appetite suppressants
  • Sermorelin acetate injections
  • Personal training
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)

What is the HCG diet?

The HCG diet is the most effective weight loss treatment available. Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone naturally produced by both men and women that contains 244 amino acids.

Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a British endocrinologist, developed the HCG diet in the 1950s when he noticed that drops containing the hormone helped control metabolism. HCG triggers the body to burn off abnormal fat stores as energy and shrink unnecessary fat cells, leading to weight loss without muscle wasting.

The HCG diet is sometimes called the “pounds and inches” diet because it measures fat loss in inches rather than pounds. The diet consists of four phases:

I:  Days 1 and 2. Take HCG injection and eat plenty of healthy but fatty calorie-rich foods.

II: Days 3 to 23. Take HCG injection and follow a 500-calorie low-carbohydrate diet.

III: Days 24 to 26. Stop HCG. Slowly increase calories with healthy proteins and fats.

IV: Three Weeks of Maintenance. During this stage, you follow a low-carb diet without HCG. If you want to do another round of the HCG diet to achieve your optimal figure, you should wait at least six weeks after the maintenance phase.

You may have mild to moderate headaches during the first few days of the HCG diet, owing to carbohydrate withdrawal. You may also have temporary cravings.

Does HCG make me lose weight?

The low-calorie diet is responsible for your weight loss. The HCG helps your body produce more testosterone to build muscle mass. Increased muscle mass prevents the muscle wasting that occurs on other calorie-restriction diets, most of which trigger your body to burn muscle tissue rather than fat.

What are the benefits of the HCG Diet Plan?

The HCG Diet Plan rewires your body to perform more efficiently and achieve greater health. You can expect benefits such as:

  • Increased energy
  • Faster metabolism
  • Stronger skin (no loose skin after weight loss)
  • Reduced cellulite
  • Decreased cravings for carbohydrates and sugar
  • Increased libido
  • Fast fat loss

A final benefit of the HCG Diet Plan is that it doesn’t require a heavy time investment or hours at the gym. If you’re ready to take charge of your body, your metabolism, and your health with a medically supervised HCG Diet, call EVU to set up an appointment or book it online.
