HCG Weight Loss Program
Have you struggled with losing stubborn weight?
You are not alone, many of us have too.
This is why we are so excited to announce a new HCG weight loss program here at Inspired Health!
If you have struggled the last couple of years with changes in your metabolism, or there has been that stubborn weight that you could not budge even with consistent exercise and an individualized style of healthy eating – then this program is for you!
The truth is, sometimes stress, hormonal changes, toxins and several other factors can trigger our bodies to store unwanted fat. When done correctly, the HCG diet will tell the body it is ok to release the stored fat and allow for a new, lower “set weight” your body will then recognize as normal. When you do this HCG program, you’ll be able to lose the stubborn weight AND be able to keep it off!!
We are so passionate about this program!
Our providers will help guide you every step of the way during the program through weekly visits, provide fat burning and energy boosting injections, help answer any questions and provide the tools you need to lose your stubborn weight. Typical weight loss in 30 days for women is 15-20 pounds and in men is 20-30 pounds. On average, most people who follow the correct protocol from start to finish will maintain their weight loss for 2 years and most do well for many years!
The HCG diet first came about in the 1960’s when a British Endocrinologist, Dr. Simeons began working with boys in India who were suffering from delayed/abnormal sexual maturation and fat distribution on their bodies. While studying these young men, he discovered that giving them very low doses of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) greatly improved their abnormal fat distribution. He then hypothesized that combining HCG with a very low calorie diet (no more than 500 calories/day) could reduce weight and abnormal fat stores.

When done correctly, the HCG diet will tell the body it is ok to release the stored fat and allow for a new, lower “set weight” your body will then recognize as normal. It does this by stimulating the hypothalamus which is located in the brain and helps regulate:
- Pituitary gland
- Blood pressure
- Hunger and salt craving
- Body temperature
- Hydration and bladder function
- Hormones and neurotransmitters
- Ovarian and testicular function
- Mood / behavior and sleep / wake cycles
- Energy and stress adaptation
- Fat deposition and release
Typical weight loss diets will first burn off the structural fat (support for keeping face youthful/full, providing cushioning to the bodies organs/tissues/structures) and then move to burn reserve fat (normal fat stores available to the body as a fuel source in times of increased nutritional demand or calorie deficit). This leaves behind the abnormal fat. For obvious reasons, this is very frustrating for those struggling to lose weight.
The HCG diet comprises eating a very low calorie diet (500 calories/day) with daily subcutaneous (into the fat) injections of the hormone HCG for a determined length of time. The needle and amount of HCG solution is very small, so injections are painless!
The minimum injection phase is 21 days and 42 days is the maximum.
The length beyond the minimum 21 days is determined by weight loss goals. If needed, more than 1 cycle can be done with a minimum of 6 weeks break between cycles. The break is to prevent the body from becoming “immune” to the powerful weight loss effects of HCG.
- Typical weight loss per month for women is 15-20lbs and for men is 20-30lbs!
- Fat stores toxins so as it is removed from your body- you will also have the added benefit of detoxing!
It is important to note many people over the years have lost weight successfully with the HCG diet but gained it back and sometimes more- shortly after finishing. This is due to many factors but the most important being a lack of understanding or follow through needed to maintain the weight loss. This has led to a lot of skepticism regarding the validity of the HCG diet to produce long lasting results. On average, most people who follow the correct protocol from start to finish will maintain their weight loss for 2 years and most do well for many years!
