HCG Weight Loss Program in Portland, Oregon

HCG Diet Program

In the 1950’s, a British endocrinologist by the name of Dr. A.T.W Simeons was conducting clinical work in India when he discovered the rapid fat burning properties of HCG. HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone that’s naturally produced in pregnant women. It is responsible for making sure that a developing fetus is getting all of the nutrients it needs, regardless of the mother’s food intake. It does this by burning the excess fat stored in the mother’s body. The HCG Diet program is a great way to shed unwanted pounds in a relatively short period of time. The hormone helps to suppress your appetite, while encouraging your body to burn stored fat for energy. At Oregon Derma Center, we can provide guidance and supervision for weight loss using the HCG diet in Portland.

According to the CDC, more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese, and the problem is only getting worse. There are hundreds of different diet plans out there that are designed to make losing weight simple and easy. The HCG diet has been gaining popularity lately, and it has been proven to encourage substantial weight loss and is a great way to jumpstart your healthy lifestyle change. The HCG diet consists of several different phases. In phase one, you eat lots of calories and fatty foods over the first two days that you start taking HCG injections. This phase is designed to reprogram your metabolism in preparation for the next phase of the diet. Phase two involves taking a daily dose of HCG and eating healthy foods that are low in fat and sugar. This is also the phase where you must begin limiting your calorie intake to around 500 per day, while also avoiding sugary or fatty foods. This is when the HCG springs into action in your body. It makes up for your low calorie intake by burning your abnormal body fat. In this phase, the typical weight loss ranges from 2-5 pounds per day. If you are looking to lose a lot of weight, then we recommend the 42-day program. For people who are just looking to lose less than 15 pounds or so, we recommend the 23-day program. Once you are done with your doses of HCG, you remain on the 500 calorie limit for about 3 days, or enough time for the HCG to completely leave your system. After that it is a matter of maintaining your weight by avoiding starches and sugars and by eating healthier.
