The HCG Diet

The hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin has helped countless men and women to lose weight and reach their weight loss goals. Weight loss with the HCG Diet has numerous benefits, including rapid weight loss, a reset metabolism, and reformed eating habits. The HCG Diet works with a low calorie diet to use fat stores for fuel, and many patients have been able to lose around one pound per day. The HCG Diet has been around for over 60 years, helping men and women to lose weight and improve their health.

Appetite Suppressants

For many patients who struggle with weight loss, appetite suppressants are prescribed. Phentermine, Phendimetrazine (Bontril), Diethylpropion (Tenuate), and Phentermine/Topiramate (Qsymia) are available in our office for our patients.

These medications do not cause weight loss. They are prescribed to help you in reducing your caloric intake by reducing your hunger. Weight loss occurs when your caloric expenditure exceeds your caloric intake. While taking prescription weight loss medications, it is important to begin making small behavioral and lifestyle changes, such as increasing your amount of daily physical activity, in addition to developing healthy eating choices and reducing your caloric intake. We’ll be there with you providing you with the education and resources necessary for you to be successful.

Our “10-14” Rapid Weight Loss Program

Our high protein modified liquid diet is a quick and safe way to drop up to 10 pounds in 14 days. Our 10-14 plan modified liquid diet involves a 14 day period of fasting on 4 to 5 high protein, meal replacement drinks and a 100 to 200 calorie dinner. During this time, you will consume between 500 and 700 calories a day. By adding an additional 100 calories burned by increased exercise, the average patient will lose up to 10 pounds in 14 days. Multiple two-week programs may be added for a longer fast.

This diet includes:

  • 60 Meal Replacement Shakes available in Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry and Cappuccino
  • 2 B Complex Injections (one per week)
  • Book of Recipes to enhance the Meal Replacement Shakes
  • Book of Recipes for the 100 to 200 calorie dinners

The reason we use protein in this diet is because it assists with balancing blood sugar levels and supporting healthy muscle development and recovery after exercise. Muscle improves the metabolic rate, which helps you to burn fat throughout the day.

Protein forms the building blocks of the body and is responsible for the general health of the body, including healthy bone and muscle development. Protein takes longer to digest than other elements in food and for this reason it has the ability to balance blood sugar levels. It reduces the need to snack and assists with muscle repair and recovery after exercise.

B12 and B Complex Injections

Vitamin B12 Injection

B-12 is used in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It is involved in making DNA, necessary in the production of new healthy cells. It is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy. B12 lowers homocysteine levels, a protein associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and dementia. It is often used to give an energy boost, helping to increase activity levels. While B12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, factors like stress and poor eating habits can lead to a deficiency. Additionally, B-12 can provide improved sleep, relief from allergies and stress, and can combat moodiness, as it is an essential vitamin for the nervous system. Using it as a weekly supplement with our weight loss system will enhance your weight loss results.

B Complex Injection

Our B Complex injections contain a base of Methylcobalamin (B12) plus a proprietary formulation of Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacinamide (B3), Pantothenic Acid (B5), Pyridoxine (B6). . B Vitamins work so closely with one other that a deficiency in any one B Vitamin can lead to poor functioning of any or all of the others, even if they are in good supply. B vitamins have been long thought of as anti-aging treatments to enhance energy levels and address the slowing metabolism that commonly occurs as we age. B Vitamins are particularly important for energy, stabilizing moods, and for promoting healthier skin, hair and eyes. If you have trouble with low energy levels and a slow metabolism that’s leading to weight gain, you may benefit from weekly B Complex injections.

B Complex Ingredients:

  • B-12: (see above)
  • Thiamin (B1): Thiamin is an important coenzyme that helps the body convert food into energy. It also assists in manufacturing fat and metabolizing protein. Thiamin is necessary to maintain normal function in the nervous system while playing a part in the chain of reactions that provides energy for the body. It is thought to be beneficial for people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and older adults with mental impairment. Thiamin studies on volunteers have claimed an increase in mental acuity.
  • Riboflavin (B2): Riboflavin works together with the family of B-complex vitamins to provide the body with energy by metabolizing carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It also helps in the regeneration of glutathione, an enzyme that rids the body of free radicals. Riboflavin may be able to decrease the number of migraine headaches a person has. It might also help to prevent cataracts. Riboflavin has helped to increase iron levels for those suffering from iron-deficiency anemia.
  • Niacinamide (B3): Niacin works with other b-complex vitamins to metabolize food and provide energy for the body. Niacin is very effective at correcting high cholesterol and preventing or reversing heart disease. It can be used to treat insulin-dependent diabetes. Some studies indicate it might also be effective in treating arthritis and migraine headaches.
  • Pantothenic Acid (B5): Pantothenic Acid helps the body extract energy from carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It also helps to metabolize fats and produce red blood cells and hormones from the adrenal gland. Vitamin B5 might be useful in treating rheumatoid arthritis. It could also be used to lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Pantothenic acid is commonly found in “anti-stress” formulas because it works with the adrenal glad to produce stress hormones.
  • Pyridixone (B6): Pyridixone is effective against more than 100 health conditions. It’s used against maladies as serious as heart disease and everyday aggravations such as premenstrual syndrome and sensitivity to MSG. It can even help prevent the formation of kidney stones.

Lipo-B and Lipo-Plus Injections

By definition, a Lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. The liver is the key organ in control of body fat. Even if you do everything right, if your liver is slow to process fats it will slow your weight loss. Our Lipotropics and B12 injections help your liver process fats at peak efficiency making your weight loss faster and easier to maintain. For these reasons, we recommend weekly Lipotropic injections to help you lose weight and keep it off. After just 4 weeks of injections, you will look and feel healthier and your liver will thank you.

It is often used to give an energy boost, helping to increase activity levels. While B12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, factors like stress and poor eating habits can lead to a deficiency. Our Lipo-B injection utilizes a highly absorbable form of Vitamin B12 called Methylcobalamin. Methlycobalamin is the specific form of B12 needed for the nervous system health.

Choline: Choline supports the health of the liver, in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body. Moreover, it is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body.

Methionine: Methionine is one of the sulfur-containing amino acids and is important for many bodily functions. It acts as a lipotropic agent to prevent excess fat buildup within the liver, is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue, and may be useful in some cases of allergy because it reduces histamine release. Patients with a Sulfa allergy should not take this injection.
Inositol: Inositol is a nutrient belonging to the B vitamin complex, is closely associated with choline. It aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce cholesterol within the blood. Inositol participates in the action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

Lipo-PLUS Injection:

Lipo-B as above + Additional B Vitamins + Vitamin C + Lidocaine

We added additional B vitamins, Vitamin C, and Lidocaine to our Lipo-B, to form the Lipo PLUS injection. B Vitamins work so closely with one other that a deficiency in any one B Vitamin can lead to poor functioning of any or all of the others, even if they are in good supply. B vitamins have been long thought of as anti-aging treatments to enhance energy levels and address the slowing metabolism that commonly occurs as we age.
