Also known as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. The substance almost completely controls a woman’s metabolic functions during pregnancy. The HCG is used for both men and women and is an all-natural and bio- identical hormone.

The relationship between HCG and weight regulation was discovered by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in 1969. Our weight loss program at Doral Medical Center is based on Dr. Simeon’s HCG research and our patients are achieving an average weight loss between 1 to 2 pounds of fat per day and up to 30 pounds in the very first month.

The program consists of a 28 day cycle and requires administering HCG injections along with a low calorie intake diet of usually 500 calories. It is important to consider that a daily 500 calorie diet limits the body by decreasing the extra energy that food provides, therefore exercise is not required. However, if you intent to exercise while on the diet, it is highly recommended to add an extra 200 calories, such as a protein shake, to your food intake right before exercise. Another option is to modify your workout routine by decreasing it if you work out vigorously and slowly increasing it if you are particularly sedentary. Most importantly, listen to your body. Stop and step back from the exercise if exhaustion occurs.

A good amount of exercise with this diet is 25-30 minutes of daily walking. Since the HCG hormone is able to convert excess fat into calories and energy, patients are able to tolerate well the low calorie intake. This program will be monitored and administered by a health professional. There are many HCG programs on the market, some are even offered over the counter or on the internet. However, not all of them work for everybody. These programs are not a one-size-fits-all and must be professionally adjusted to meet each individual’s “shape and size”.Our program is safe and there are rarely any side effects. This program requires an initial consultation and weekly visits.

Lipotropic injections are administered for two reasons, the first one, to help you rid of fat and toxins via better metabolism of fat and maintenance of a healthy liver, and the second, boost of the immune system.  Lipotropic injections packed with vitamins and amino acids such as:

Cobalamin (B12): a water soluble vitamin part of the B family that plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system but its main role is in boosting energy, metabolism, fat control, keeping a healthy liver and burning calories.

Methionine: sulfur containing amino acid that prevents fat buildup, prevents fatigue and allergies by inhibiting histaminic release.

Inositol: Type of carbohydrate that helps in metabolism and in reduction of cholesterol in blood. It also works in conjunction with serotonin, a neurotransmitter that controls mood and appetite.

Choline: It is a precursor of acetylcholine a neurotransmitter that activates muscles. It also participates in detoxification of the body by excreting chemical waste.

 Patients doing the Lipotropic Diet may benefit from both, its fat burning ability and immune system increase.
