First, we only prescribe HCG by injection after labs and a medical evaluation by our Nurse Practitioner. We only use pharmaceutical grade medications for our bio-identical hormone replacement therapy made under the supervision of pharmacists in a DEA licensed manufacturing facility. We NEVER dilute the medications and EVERYTHING we buy is from the United States. We NEVER purchase pharmaceuticals from outside the country.
Second, our Weight Loss Coaches provide support during both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of your program. Coaches are available in person, by email, phone, or facebook messaging for one-on-one help to answer any of your questions and to give you specific personal advice on how to maximum your weight loss.
Lastly, we give you weekly feedback, encouragement and accountability when you come into our San Angelo clinic for your appointment. Unlike other medical weight loss programs and clinics, we want you to succeed because we know that you deserve a healthier, better you!
The active ingredient is Certified Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG).
Is the HCG diet a 500 calorie diet?
Yes and no! It is common knowledge that the human body needs between 1500-3000 calories of energy per day, depending on the type of work and energy needs of the particular individual. The 500 calories in this diet program provide the starting point only. The additional calories of energy needed come from the increased level of fat metabolism at the mitochondrial level. Thus, the HCG diet is NOT a starvation diet!
Three Kinds of Fat
The first is the structural fat that fills the gaps between the various organs as sort of packing material. It provides the cushioning that beds the kidneys in soft elastic tissue, it protects the coronary arteries, and it provides the spongy cushion of hard fat under the bones of the feet without which we could not walk.
The second kind of fat takes advantage of the fact that fat packs the highest caloric value into the smallest space. Normal reserves of fuel for muscular activity and maintenance of body temperature are conveniently stored in this form. The body can draw upon these reserves of fuel when the nutritional resources from the intestinal tract are insufficient to meet the demand. These fat reserves are localized all over the body.
The third kind of fat is entirely abnormal and it is the kind of fat from which the overweight persons suffers. This abnormal is a potential fuel reserve but unlike the second kind of fat, it is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency. Unlike the normal reserves, it is not kept in a current account; it is locked away in a fixed deposit.
Dr. Simeons has concluded that obesity is caused by a disorder of the diencephalic center of the brain, and HCG works on this part of the brain to pry loose the unwanted fat – the third kind of fat.
Dr. Simeons advises that when HCG is used in conjunction with a very low calorie diet (500 calories), the Hypothalamus (located in the diencephalic area of the brain) regulates the disposal of the abnormal fat (the third kind of fat) so that the patient’s body is reshaped naturally, with-out effort. In other words, patients using this program lose their fat from adipose tissue accumulations, causing visible contouring of the body.
