Have you struggled to lose weight in the past, no matter how hard you’ve tried? A high caloric intake and low metabolism could be to blame. If your efforts so far have proven anything, it may be that going at it alone just isn’t the answer for you and the way your body works. Fortunately, not all is lost; ReNu Med Spa can assist you as you work to achieve your weight loss goals through a system called HCG medical weight loss.
What is HCG?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that is naturally present in the body and abundantly produced in women during pregnancy. Once HCG began being used as a hormone therapy for those struggling with hormone imbalance and fertility issues, it wasn’t long before a link between those receiving the injections and the weight loss they were experiencing was discovered.
What is the HCG diet and how does it work?
The HCG diet is designed to improve metabolism and provide your body with more efficient nutrient processing. With the guidance and supervision of a medical expert, the HCG diet can help reduce your caloric intake by suppressing your appetite, promote fat loss without muscle loss, and make your metabolism work in your favor.
The HCG diet involves committing to a calorie-restricted diet for eight weeks while receiving periodic HCG injections. During your initial consultation, we will create a plan with the proper dosage of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and determine your max calorie count for the duration of your diet. Typically, the HCG diet allows you to consume roughly 500 calories per day. We know this seems daunting, but with the appetite suppression brought on by the hormone injections, it can be managed.
We’ll also help you understand how your body processes the hormone to target stored fat and provide you with additional instructions to follow for optimal results. Our goal is to help you become the best version of yourself, and we will be here to support you throughout your entire HCG medical weight loss journey.
