HOW HCG WEIGHT LOSS WORKS
Your HCG program starts with an individual assessment of your health— why are you gaining weight, why can’t you lose certain spots, how much do you need to lose, is HCG right for you? This will help you set your own parameters and goals.
Next, your treatment will require daily injections of the HCG hormone in the same spot, at the same time, every day for the duration of your program. You will also need to follow a diet of no more than 500 calories per day. (This is so that you do not build up more fat, and your body therefore instead uses its fat reserves already in place, aka, where you are trying to lose weight.) The program also recommends light exercise. After the first duration (4-6 weeks), many patients undergo the program again, until they have met their weight goals.
Because the program requires you to make certain day-to-day changes, the long length of time of the program allows you to solidify these changes into good lifestyle habits. Meaning you lose the weight, and learn to stay that way.
