HCG Diet & Weight Loss Plan in Hot Springs, AR
What is HCG?
HCG is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. The substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions during this time. The HCG diet is a weight loss plan originally developed by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a British doctor. The two main components of the diet include regular injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and a low calorie daily diet of limited food choices. Advocates believe that the injections of HCG allow a dieter to reduce the side effects typically associated with a low-calorie diet, such as hunger pangs.
How does the HCG Diet work?
The injections alone will NOT make you lose weight. It is only one tool of a specialized program which when followed properly has produced substantial healthy weight loss for thousands of people. With most patients, the weight stays off and their quality of life drastically improves. This happens because we focus on helping the individual find the reason for their weight management issues and help them define healthy changes to maintain the weight loss they achieve on the plan.
How do I get started on the hHCG Diet?
Patients begin the HCG Diet with an initial consultation with Dr, Campbell, including a full medical history. If there are any additional health issues with a patient, some lab tests may be required. The 6-week diet plan requires a prescription from the doctor, along with the program fee.
