HCG Diet


The HCG diet is a medical weight loss program that targets stubborn fat, specif­i­cally tar­get­ing hips, abdomen and thighs. With the use of phar­ma­ceit­i­cal HCG and fol­low­ing a specific diet pro­to­col, the ado­nor­mal fat is elim­i­nated while leaving the structural fat intact to keep the body healthy

Studies have shown that the weight loss fol­low­ing this pro­to­col comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. HCG assists the body in resetting it’s metab­o­lism so that the weight stays off. Appetite sup­pres­sants are used on an as needed basis for the beginning of the program.

MIC Ultra­burn Lipo injections are used in con­junc­tion with the program or by themselves with a high protein diet to achieve optimal results.

HCG Diet

What is HCG?

HCG is the hormone produced by women in the early stages of pregnancy. While taking HCG, people are able to loose stubborn “abnormal fat”.

In the human body there are 3 kinds of fat: 
Structural fat fills the gaps between var­i­ous organs (beds the kidneys, protects coro­nary arteries, pads bones of feet, etc) 
Reserve fat body can freely drawn upon when the nutritional income from the intestinal tract is insuf­fi­cient to meet demand.

Abnormal fat, unlike normal reserve fat‚ it is unavailable to the body in a nutritional emergency.

When an obese patient tries to reduce by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. When these are exhausted,he begins to burn up structural fat, and only as a last resort will the body yield its abnormal reserves, though by that time the patient usually feels so weak and hungry that the diet is abandoned. They feel famished and tired and their face becomes drawn and haggard, but their belly hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. Their skin wrinkles and they look older.

Pregnancy seems to be the only normal human con­di­tion in which the abnormal fixed fat deposits can be transferred into the normal cir­cu­la­tion and drawn upon to make up for any nutritional deficit.

Any patient who thinks that they can reduce by taking extra HCG or eating less/more will be dis­ap­pointed. The diet is to be followed implicitly. If the daily dose of HCG is increased, the action often appears to be reversed.

Some patients do not believe they can eat fairly normally without regaining weight. They dis­re­gard the advice to eat anything they please except sugar and starch for 3 weeks after the diet is completed. They try more or less to continue the low calorie diet without the HCG. To their hor­ror, their weight goes up and their ankle swelling returns. The expla­na­tion is simple. Dur­ing treatment the patient has been only just above the verge of protein deficiency and has had the advantage of protein being fed back into his sys­tem from the breakdown of fatty tissue.<

Once there is no more HCG in body so protein deficiency develops and marked retention of water known as hunger edema.

60 to 70% of clients hold their weight per­ma­nently. Relapses may be due to neg­li­gence in the basic rule of daily weighing. After a course of HCG as much as 10 pounds can be regained without any noticeable change in the fit of clothes. The reason for that is that after treatment newly acquired fat is at first evenly dis­trib­uted and does not show the former pref­er­ence for certain areas of the body.

The HCG triggers the body to burn abnormal fat. HCG and appears to reset the hypo­thal­a­mus gland, which changes the patients metab­o­lism, leading to a sus­tained weight loss.
