HCG Diet Programs
Coppell Texas HCG Injections Specialist, Susan Harris, FNP at LifeStream Health Centre & Med Spa offers customized HCG Diet plans that are safe and highly effective. If you need a jump- start in losing weight, she typically recommends the HCG diet. If you haven’t heard of this, it is an extreme diet that involves injections of HCG, which is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, the hormone women make when they are pregnant. This diet is associated with dramatic weight loss, up to a pound a day with even greater results in men.
How does it work?
The HCG Diet is defined by a 500-1500-calorie diet paired with daily injections of HCG.
HCG reduces feelings of hunger, allowing you to eat very little comfortably; this is the same hormone that often causes feelings of nausea in the early stages of pregnancy.
HCG is a pro-hormone which helps the body make more hormones. Since hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, whether it’s your thyroid, menopause, or andropause, this hormone offers help.
Lose fat, not muscle
- Muscle is 1/3 the volume of fat
- Muscle improves metabolism
- Metabolism dictates calories burned at rest
You do not want to lose muscle!
In a typical crash diet, there is a high amount of muscle lost. Because muscle is heavy, the loss looks great on a scale as pounds are shed. Losing muscle is bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. Literally, your metabolism will slow so much that you are likely to regain the weight quickly, and often more.
HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building), which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown).
The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.
Why are people claiming that HCG causes regaining of weight?
Many people who claim to have lost weight with HCG have only used the drops, which we now know cannot be absorbed. It is the same as dieting alone. That’s why people gain the weight back. The only way we have been able to demonstrate a protection against regaining weight is with the use of HCG injections.
Only HCG injections have been shown to raise blood levels of HCG; drops, pills, and sprays are dissolved before ever reaching the blood and in clinical trials have similar results to placebos, which involves lost muscle weight.
