The HCG diet is a proven and effective weight loss plan. Under the supervision of our Internist Dr. Tatiana Sharahy, patients looking to lose anywhere from 5 to 200+ pounds of excess body fat have seen fantastic results; losing pounds and inches from their belly, waist, arms, and chest.
HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a glycoprotein comprised of over 200 amino acids. The HCG hormone is naturally produced by women while pregnant to promote the healthy absorption and distribution of food. HCG also converts accumulated fat into usable energy.
Utilizing the benefit of HCG for weight loss began in the 1950’s by an Endocrinologist, Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons. The Doctor studied pregnant women in India who were limited to very low diets due to poverty. Although they were expecting to have underweight and malnourished offspring, their babies were all born of normal height and weight. These results were attributed to their mothers’ production of HCG. Dr. Simeons applied these findings to overweight boys with pituitary issues. By providing the boys with low doses of HCG they lost fat (rather than muscle tissue) in their weight loss regiment.
At Third Space Medical, the HCG hormone is used in conjunction with a medically supervised low calorie diet (500 calories or less) to promote dramatic fat loss. The HCG hormone and diet plan produces powerful results to improve body shape and lifestyle. With a limited calorie intake, stored body fat is consumed as energy.
The HCG diet is safe and effective for weight loss in both men and women. This fat reduction technique must be followed with both HCG hormone injections and low calorie diet components to achieve success. Dr. Sharahy specializes in weight management and will oversee each patient’s individual goals and nutritional plan. At Third Space Medical, patients can expect to lose up to 1 pound per day of pure fat with HCG.
Weight loss has the added bonus of improving medical conditions such as back and knee pain, depression, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure.
