HCG Diet in Scottsdale
What is HCG?
- HCG is a hormone produced in large amounts by pregnant women, which ensures that the baby has everything necessary to develop normally, even if mom is in a famine.
- It is produced by both men and women in trace amounts.
How does the HCG diet work?
- Because the hormone is continually releasing energy from your fat reserves, it is possible to only eat 500 calories/day without feeling hungry, dropping your metabolism, or losing muscle mass. It only burns fat.
- The hormone itself does not dissolve the fat, but it makes the very low calorie diet possible, and that dissolves your fat.
- Your metabolism is “reset” making it possible for your body to maintain your new weight.
Is the HCG Diet Safe?
- HCG has been used for weight loss for more than 60 years.
- It is extremely safe, when used appropriately.
- It is safe to use in both men and women.
- It may improve fertility or ease the symptoms of perimenopause and low Testosterone.
- Many patients have decreased their risk factors and medications, making them healthier and more likely to live long and healthy lives!
- You SHOULD NOT use HCG if you are pregnant or nursing, have ever had a blood clot or DVT. Tell your doctor if you have any immune conditions or history of cancer.
What is involved in the HCG program?
- The HCG program is either a 3 or 6 week interval, depending on the amount of weight you would like to lose.
- You will need to weigh yourself daily at home.
- Weekly visits with your doctor to check-in on how you are feeling and your progress, take your weight and measurements.
- Daily injections, using a very small insulin-type syringe that is nearly painless.
- Very low calorie diet for 3 or 6 weeks, followed by low carbohydrate diet for 3 weeks to “lock in” your body’s changes.
- Minimal to low amounts of light expertise.
- Back to normal, healthy diet at the end of the process.
How much weight can I expect to lose on the HCG Diet?
- Every body is different, but on average you can expect:
- 10-20 pounds of weight loss in 3 weeks
- 20-50 pounds of weight loss in 6 weeks
- What if I need to lose more than that?
- You can do multiple rounds of the diet, with a break period in between the cycles.

Disclaimer: HCG has not been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity and states that there is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
