Losing weight fast

You may have heard of HCG weight loss, a popular diet plan 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 quite worked for you, you may be interested in it. First, you should know how it works and how to make it work for you.

How HCG weight loss works

HCG weight loss gets its name from the fact that it uses a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG for short. This is also known as the pregnancy hormone because it is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. This hormone 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. Of course, on a diet like that anyone would lose weight, but what makes hCG different is that it helps your body turn more fat into energy, so you can go about your day without feeling sick or listless.

But remember that no one should ever attempt this sort of rapid weight loss without medical supervision. In particular, beware of people who would sell you hCG supplements over the counter or over the Internet. These supplements may have too little hormone in them to be effective — especially homeopathic supplements which are in fact all or mostly water — or may have been manufactured without health and safety guidelines. The FDA recommends you avoid them.

An HCG weight loss clinic in Matthews, NC

So anyone planning to lose weight this way needs a program designed by experts, a medical specialist to keep an eye on the process and medicine guaranteed to be the real thing. The Conner Family Health Clinic in Matthews, NC, has two HCG weight loss programs — 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 “Pounds and Inches” 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, healthy weight without gaining back all those hard-lost pounds. (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.
