The hCG diet has been around since the 1950’s, but in the last 2 years more patients have used the program to lose weight, than in the previous 60 years combined. Let’s review some of the facts and myths associated with this revolutionary program.
Anyone would lose weight on a 500 calorie diet.
Fact: Initially that’s true, however, during times of severe caloric restriction, the body will go into starvation mode, metabolism slows and muscle tissue can be depleted. Not to mention the fact that you are hungry or as some people would term “HANGRY”. Appropriate, prescription forms of hCG will stimulate lipolysis (the breakdown of fat), while acquiring approximately 2000 calories per day of energy from these same fat stores. You are not hungry, you are not losing muscle, and you are losing fat.
All dosage forms of hCG are just as effective.
Fact: One of the most effective dosage forms of hCG is the pharmaceutical grade injections.
Homeopathic hCG is sold via the internet and elsewhere at a lower cost and claims to be a safer alternative to prescription hCG.
Fact: By law, homeopathic hCG does not contain the hCG hormone, consequently results are inconsistent.
All hCG weight loss programs are alike.
Fact: Whenever you are administering something new to the body, it is always recommended that you are supervised; followed by a board certified MD who understands how to use hCG safely. Equilibrium Weight Loss and Longevity Centers offer a physician supervised program, using a naturally occurring hormone already produced in the body-hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) in very low doses to enable any human body approximately 2,000 calories of stored fat for use as your primary daily energy source. This results in an average fat loss of 4 – 8 pounds each week!
