Don’t go for online plans

HCG weight loss is a popular weight loss method that can help patients lose up to one pound every one to two days. If you want to lose weight and other diet plans have never worked for you, you may want to try it. If done right, it can be very effective — but you have to commit to it, and you have to choose the right program

This is important. A lot of people online are offering HCG over the counter or over the Internet in one form or another. Some of these people may be legitimate, but too many of them are selling pills that have been manufactured in countries without health and safety guidelines. Or they are offering pills that have too little of the effective ingredient in them to work — especially the people touting homeopathic pills. The FDA recommends you stay far away from these people.

In addition, HCG weight loss is very rapid, and no one should ever undergo rapid weight loss without medical supervision. So anyone planning to use it needs a program designed by medical professionals, monitored in a real brick-and-mortar medical center with medicine of known quality.

How HCG helps with weight loss

HCG weight loss uses a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG for short. This is a hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. It regulates the metabolism of the mother and encourages the burning of fat. In order to bring about weight loss, hCG must be combined with a low-calorie diet — as little as 500 calories a day, and from a carefully chosen group of foods. This diet is what causes the weight loss. What the hCG does is to help your body turn more fat into energy, so you can go about your day without feeling sick or listless.

An HCG weight loss clinic in Matthews, NC

The Conner Family Health Clinic in Matthews, NC, has two HCG weight loss programs. There is a 43-day program for those wishing to lose 20 to 40 pounds, and a 23-day program for those who only need to lose 15 pounds or less. Both are based on the original protocol written by Dr. Simeon in the 1950s, and include staff support, weekly HCG weight loss injections and a guidebook for patients that includes low-calorie menus.

When you complete the program, the medical staff will use the FDA-approved Medgem to calculate your new metabolic rate and tell you exactly how many calories per day you need to maintain your new weight without gaining back the pounds you worked so hard to lose. (This is the same equipment used on The Biggest Loser.)

The HCG weight loss programs of the Conner Clinic have a 95 percent success rate. If you feel ready to try HCG weight loss, call to make an appointment today.
