Why the hCG Diet Might Be Your Answer for Weight Loss

Have all of your dieting efforts to date gone down the drain? If you’re in a cycle of diet failure, it’s time to consider a diet that’s bred some controversy: the hCG diet. Before you skip to another page, know that the hCG diet as originally conceived, with very minimal caloric intake of 500 or so calories per day, has been soundly spanked in health articles, and rightly so. It was too extreme. Things like eating only one vegetable a day and a prohibition against exercise were simply not common sense. 

Board-certified Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. with Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, offers weight loss as an adjunct service to his plastic surgery practice. He supports his patients in improving their lives and their health by encouraging loss of excess weight.

The modified hCG diet as seen on ‘Dr. Oz’

Dr. Hensel Jr. follows the recommendations for an adaptation of the hCG diet as shown on the ‘Dr. Oz’ tv show. He likes this approach because you’ll see fast results. Shedding pounds starting at the beginning of your diet instead of waiting weeks for a small amount of weight to come off serves to motivate many patients to continue losing and not quit until their bodies are transformed; you can be one of them. 

The modified hCG diet has separate, customized dosing regimens of hCG for men and women based on age. Calorie count is from 500 to 1,500 calories per day. Moderate exercise is not only permitted; it’s encouraged. Your weight loss program is individualized just for you. 

Based on your health history and needs, we use hCG injections along with reduced calories. If you follow the plan, your weight loss is going to be significant very quickly. You’ll see a huge difference in your body anywhere from three to six weeks out. 

A huge benefit of hCG as adapted here: Your hunger is greatly reduced. When you’re not hungry, you don’t have the craving to eat. 

One criticism of the original hCG diet was that patients lost muscle. Your muscles perform incredibly important functions in your body, protecting your bones from damage and giving you the strength and energy you need to enjoy life. 

On the adapted hCG diet that we use at Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center, you keep that muscle but lose the weight. Hormone receptors on muscle fibers absorb the hCG hormone in the injections you take during the program, and you build muscle instead of lose it. You’ll fit into clothes you haven’t worn in years. 

While you’re building muscle, the hCG injections also help your body burn excess fat. The process helps reset your metabolism and prepares your body for the time when you no longer take hCG injections.
