Weight Loss and HCG: Frequently Asked Questions
Getting On Track Towards Your Weight Loss Goals
Our advanced understanding of how the body burns fat has enabled us to offer many advanced, safe ways to lose weight here at Vitality Health & Wellness. Here are some common questions asked about our HCG plan — and the answers you may be seeking.
Q: What is HCG exactly?
A: The initials stand for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin, a hormone that signals fat cells to release the fat they contain for use as fuel. The more of this hormone is released into the bloodstream, the more quickly the fat is turned into energy.
Q: How do these injections help me lose weight safely?
A: By injecting extra Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin into the body, we are simply helping your body perform its natural fat-burning processes more efficiently. It has none of the side effects associated with diet pills, which can cause the heart to race and blood pressure to rise, or diuretics, which can cause dehydration and stress the kidneys.
Q: Will I still have to reduce my caloric intake?
A: To get the proper weight loss benefit of this treatment, we combine our hormone injections with a low-calorie diet. This “jump-starts” your body’s metabolism to produce dramatic results. But instead of placing you on a dangerous starvation diet, we employ a sensible, nutrient-rich program to help you feel and function well.
Q: How much weight can I lose under this plan?
A: This particular combination hormone therapy and dieting can help you lose up to 7 pounds per week, and a typical program may run from 26 to 43 days. If we integrate this program with other weight loss options offered at our Milwaukee clinic, you could lose up to a pound per day or up to 60 pounds within a 12-week period.
