How to lose weight quickly and safely


hcg weight loss protocol diet healthy weight managementHealthy weight loss all starts with you. If you have a desire to drop unwanted pounds and inches and live a more vibrant and salubrious lifestyle then we can help.

At Vivacity Life Center, our physicians actively live a healthy lifestyle and can therefore guide you not only from their knowledge of health and nutrition but also from their experience.

After your initial consultation, our doctors will know exactly how to guide you down the path to the weight loss and weight management you seek.

In some instances, a detox program might be right for you. Or, it could be a lower calorie diet and a tailored exercise regimen and perhaps a combination of all 3.

And in some instances, after your consultation, it may be determined that you’re a candidate for the hCG weight loss protocol.

What is the hCG weight loss protocol?

The hCG weight loss protocol consists of a very low calorie diet accompanied by hCG injections. The average hCG participant experiences rapid weight loss averaging 1 to 3 pounds per day. In addition to loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of the hCG protocol is its ability to help modify a person’s relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss. Hunger and fatigue are minimized because of the addition of hCG injections; as well as providing the benefit of maintaining muscle, avoiding that “drawn look” people can get if they lose too much weight at one time.

How painful are hCG injections for weight loss?

The hCG injections for weight loss are administered using a very fine needle and are relatively painless.

Is hCG safe for (for both men and women)?

The hCG used for the hCG weight loss protocol is actually already found in men. In fact, it is present in every human tissue, including all men and pregnant or non-pregnant women.

Will I gain the weight back after the hCG diet?

After the hCG diet, not only will you have lost weight, patients also report a change for the better in appetite and a natural course of modified eating behavior.

With all of these changes and experiences, the hCG Diet is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight.

There is no reason you should gain the weight back, as long as you have replaced any former negative eating and inactive lifestyle habits with new, healthy perspectives on food and exercise.

Most patients find a minimum amount of daily activity is sufficient to maintaining their hCG weight loss goal. A minimum amount of exercise is recommended not only for weight maintenance, but also for the added health benefits. Recommended activities include: pilates, biking, tennis, walking for 20 minutes, or any number of activities you may enjoy, that gets your heart pumping. With your hypothalamus and metabolism “reset”, your body will reflect these differences and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat.

Who is the right candidate for hCG Diet Shots?

Most men and women can use hCG injections for weight loss. It is recommended that patients consult a physician concerning your weight loss, along with the appropriate implementation of the hCG protocol. Our physician will NOT permit hCG weight loss injections for women who are pregnant or nursing.

Will I be hungry on 500 calories a day?

It is common to feel hungry during the first few days, however this will pass and by the 2nd week, you will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying. This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released. It is common that people feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500 calorie limit!

Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day?

hCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In this way, the weight lost comes directly from unhealthy fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. For this reason, hCG patients report substantial improvement of their appearance, energy level and overall feeling of of well-being.

What if I just eat the low calorie diet?

When people use the hCG diet without hCG injections they do, in fact, lose weight (the following information is based on double-blind and clinical studies) but they do not lose the problem area secure fat deposits. Their body is not reshaped. They lose muscle and structural fat. They have massive hunger and fatigue. When they stop the diet, they immediately gain all the weight back plus some.

Those who do the hCG injections lose more weight than the other group, with minimal hunger and fatigue and they lose fat in their problem areas. Their bodies are completely reshaped. They do not lose structural fat and muscle. Most importantly, when patients stop the diet and hCG injections, they typically do not gain the weight back! Although there are critics that continue to discredit the hCG diet, there are also hundreds of thousands of patients achieving these results combined with scientific documentation, double-blind studies, clinical studies and observations that show hCG injections are an effective and a fast way to combat obesity.

How Do I Inject hCG?

Your hCG will be sent to you in powder form. Here are the mixing instructions for compounded hCG 12,000 UNITS:

1) Draw 3 ML of water then inject it into the hCG vial four times for a total of 12 ML

Understanding hCG

The hCG medical weight loss program has been a tried and tested solution for fat loss amongst men and women for over 40 years. The naturally occurring hormone is given in very small doses and has been demonstrated to help patients lose approximately 1-3 pounds a day. Further, hCG is believed to make adipose tissue more available to the body as an energy source. Additionally, exercise beyond what you normally do is NOT required to see results.

In recent years, researchers have found that hCG can actually help women and men burn more fat and can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy dietary program like the one offered by Complete Clinics. It is important to note that hCG alone is not responsible for weight loss, however the Complete Clinics hCG weight loss program is unique and tailored to each patient based on their goals.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a natural hormone excreted during pregnancy. The high levels of hCG that are produced during pregnancy do not have negative effects on the pregnant woman’s body. In fact, hCG has been FDA approved for many years in order to help women experiencing hormonal issues or fertility problems. The amount of hCG used for weight loss (<200 IUs) versus the amount of hCG used for fertility purposes (10,000 IUs) is significantly lower however.

hCG is used in younger men whose testosterone levels are in the middle to low range and who desire to remain fertile or are actively trying to have children. hCG is a naturally occurring hormone in women that is produced during pregnancy that protects against muscle loss. This enables women to not lose muscle tissue during pregnancy as the fetus is living off the mother’s body. In men hCG activates testicular activity creating a greater production of testosterone. The response to hCG varies in men depending on their metabolic function and Clomid Citrate is also another testosterone alternative that can be used if a individual does not respond well to hCG. hCG is also used in conjunction with Testosterone injection treatment to activate and maintain testicular activity. This activation helps the male body produce as much natural testosterone as possible while maintaining testicular volume (size of the testis).

Our Program

Vivacity Life Center offers a comprehensive hCG diet and weight loss program. Both men and women who wish to lose fat as part of their weight-loss plan can use hCG, which is an all-natural human hormone.

The FDA has not approved hCG Therapy to lose weight. While hCG has been approved by the FDA for fertility and for other medical purposes, it has not been specifically approved for weight loss.
