HCG Diet—What You Are and Are Not Allowed To Eat

July 30, 2014

The HCG Diet is an easy way to shed nearly a pound a day! How you ask? Let’s begin with giving you a little information on this simple weight loss program. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone during pregnancy that enables women to speed up their metabolism and process food quickly. By following the fat-free diet of 500 calories per day, while receiving your HCG injections, patients have experienced additional benefits such as:

 

  • Higher Energy Levels
  • Faster Metabolism
  • Decreased Hunger

Like any diet, it is important to monitor your eating habits and stick to the approved foods for this life changing program. That’s why we have provided you with a simple list of HCG Diet approved and non-approved foods, making losing weight easier than ever! You can officially throw those second guessing moments out the window and reference this handy list whenever hunger strikes.

Behind The Scenes of The HCG diet

If you are new to the wonders of the HCG Diet, here is a brief overview of just how the program became the hit it is today.

Since the 1950’s Dr. ATW Simeons began to experiment with various amounts of HCG and a variety of different foods. As a natural way to burn calories for women during pregnancy, Dr. Simeons started studying weight management issues and dieting using the HCG hormone. Men and women had the ability to lose unwanted fat faster than dieting and exercising once given the HCG hormone. Come 2008, the HCG Diet helped people lose weight successfully, only then to excel in Professional Health Care facilities by selling the HCG hormone by the bottle in 2010 and 2011.

 

Take a look at The History of the HCG Diet for more detailed information on the discovery and development of this great weight loss program.

For Maximum Results

Looks easy enough, doesn’t it? In addition to losing up to a pound a day, many patients also receive cold laser liposuction. While the HCG diet is used to get rid of unwanted fat, liposuction permanently eliminates the additional fat patients who lose an excess amount of weight are left with. Laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that permanently removes fat. The procedure has minimal downtime and is most popular for men and women in the abdomen and hips.

Cold laser liposuction is the perfect finishing touch to your journey of weight loss. Although it is commonly used after finishing the HCG Diet, there are other benefits of this in-office procedure. After a cold laser liposuction treatment, patients experience:

  • Drastic reduction in fat
  • Reduction in cellulite
  • No scarring
  • Minimal swelling or bruising
  • 1-2 days of downtime

Can You Lose Weight with B-12 Injections?

September 10, 2013

Can-You-Lose-Weight-with-B12-Injections

One of the most common questions we get asked is if you can lose weight with B-12 injections. If you are looking for a simple answer, the answer is yes. Yes, you can lose weight with B-12 injections. However, if you are looking for something a bit more detailed and in-depth, you came to the right place.

About B-12 Injections

B-12 injections are exactly what their name suggests: injections of the vitamin B-12, along with other vitamins, into your body. While B-12 injections alone do not make you lose a large amount of weight, they are often used in conjunction with the HCG diet and/or other weight loss methods which often result in weight loss.

B-12 injections are known to correctly maintain the functioning of the brain and the entire nervous program. We offer three different types of B-12 injections at DreamBody, each one better than the last.

1. The first level of B-12 injections we offer is straight B12 Methylcobalamin. This injection helps to increase the patient’s energy and promote a healthy immune system.

2. The second level of B-12 injections we offer includes amino acids, which help to break down the patient’s fat.

3. The third level of B-12 injections we offer is called the Super B-12. It is a combination of Vitamin C, B-12 and all of the B vitamins. This injection helps promote a better immune system, decrease fat and increase energy.

Depending on the level of B-12 Injections you choose, the injection can actually work to break down your fat. We recommend that B-12 injections be received in conjunction with the HCG diet. Whether the name HCG is completely new to you or you are curious as to what you can expect while on the diet, take a look at our related blog post titled: “What to Expect While on HCG” to learn everything you need to know about the diet.

Laser Liposuction

Ask Dr. Paul!

December 21, 2011

Letter #1:

Dear Dr Paul,

I’m a 43 year old man who can’t get rid of the 3 inch layer of fat around my waist. I exercise 3 times a week for an hour and on the weekends I’m not a couch potato; I hike and do my own yard and house work. My diet is 95% OK, no fast food, no desserts, no soda and 2-4 alcohol drinks a week, sometimes none. I’m 5’9” and 180 pounds, but have the stomach of a fat man. What am I doing wrong?

Help,
Randy.

Answer #1:

Dear Randy,

I bet when you were 22 years old you had a half inch layer of fat around your waist and ate pizza, hamburgers and cookies like they were going out of style. The only difference is your hormone levels have dropped since you were 22, slowing your metabolism and thus increasing your fat storing. Testosterone replacement therapy by a board certified anti-aging medicine specialist can fine tune your levels to that of a 20-25 year old. Stress can cause adrenal gland hypofunction which leads to an accumulation of fat storage around the waist, afternoon fatigue and sleeping difficulties. There are many nutraceuticals to support your adrenals, but also try stress reducers like yoga, meditation, aroma therapy and caffeine-free tea. Lastly, I would suggest minimally invasive laser liposuction to permanently remove the adipose (fat) cells from your waist. These fat cells will never return, and if you do gain a lot of weight in ten years you won’t gain it back in the area that was liposuctioned!

Dear Dr Paul,

Ever since I started going to my doctor regularly I have gained weight, my energy has decreased and I’ve had a loss of sexual desire. Over the last 3 years my doctor put me on Zocor for cholesterol, a low dose of Effexor (an antidepressant) and a blood pressure medication, Tenormin. When I complained to my doctor he told me I was just getting old and asked if I wanted to try another drug, Viagra! What do you recommend?
No Zest, But Healthy.

Answer #2:

Dear No Zest,

Your medication can certainly be causing weight gain, fatigue and a decreased libido. Cholesterol lowering statin drugs decrease hormone levels and cause muscle ache and fatigue. Unless your cholesterol level is super high (over 300 fasting) I start my patients on Omega supplements, vitamins and exercise to lower cholesterol. If a man has a low testosterone level, testosterone replacement therapy lowers your cholesterol level and allows you to exercise without fatigue. The blood pressure drug Tenormin and antidepressants such as Effexor, Cymbalta, Wellbutrin and others block conversion of thyroid 4 (inactive form) to thyroid 3 (active form). With decreased active thyroid hormone, T3, patient will experience fatigue and weight gain. Doctors from other countries call American doctors, “drug reps” for pharmaceutical companies; because all our doctors do is prescribe drugs for every problem instead replacing a hormone or a needed vitamin or supplement. Take my advice and you probably won’t need the Viagra!

Dr Paul
