The standard hCG diet program involves the use of a prescribed hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin, hCG), in combination with a very low calorie diet. It is believed that, when calorie intake is low, the hCG hormone mobilizes stored fat for use as energy and acts on a gland in the brain to reduce cravings. Independent studies have shown a reduction in body fat percentage, while muscle mass is maintained. Supplements are supplied as part of the program package in order to provide the required nutrients and prevent nutrient deficiencies while on a calorie restricted diet. There are specific dietary recommendations that must be adhered to as they provide a metabolic environment that aids in optimal fat mobilisation.
BioAesthetics hCG Diet Program uses this basic hormone protocol with several modifications that modernise the original protocol and individualise the program to ensure it is tailored to the needs of each participant.
As a guide, patients who need to lose less than 7 kg, require a 3-week program. When a patient has more than 7kg to lose, a 6-week program is recommended.
On completion of the program, you must return to a regular calorie intake according to your Basic Metabolic Rate at your goal weight. No further medications are required. You should not regain your weight if simple recommendations are followed.
