HCG Diet Pittsburgh PA

hcg diet Pittsburgh PAWhat is HCG diet Pittsburgh weight loss program? HCG Weight Loss is our “fast track” medical weight loss program designed for the most serious and committed patients (due to its strict regimen). HCG Weight Loss uses medical administration of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) during a low calorie diet. The HCG is a natural protein hormone. In our body, it acts as a precursor to produce the other hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormones. Stimulating these hormones helps sustain a high level of energy and lean body mass during medically supervised very low calorie diet.

During our HCG Weight Loss program, it is normal to observe a weight loss between half a pound per day, to greater than one pound per day. However, the initial state of obesity, baseline metabolism, medical conditions, and compliance can affect individual results.

Breaking Down the hCG Diet: Is it Too Good to Be True?

At MGR and FeelNu Medical Spa and Wellness Center we are using “Dr Emma’s HCG Protocol” (created by Dr. Sheri L. Emma, MD)  supported by numerous studies and clinical trials. The latest of which premiered at the October 2012 meeting of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians. Incredibly effective, it was even featured on the Dr. Oz show.

The HCG Weight Loss program consists of a very low calorie diet in combination with daily administering of a very low dose of low risk medication – HCG. HCG injection is the only acceptable way and proven method of taking HCG at current time. Any other way of taking HCG, such as drops, pills, or sprays, are likely to dissolve before ever reaching the blood stream. Injections should only be taken with a prescription from a doctor, and under medical guidance. No dependency and very low percentage of rebounds have appeared. Furthermore results indicate a positive effect on metabolism.

The length of time a patient can use HCG for weight loss is determined by the physician on an individual basis.
HCG Weight Loss is a very effective, but at the same time a very strict regimen. Therefore, this program should only be considered by those who are very serious and committed to their weight loss goals.

HCG injections and Losing Weight

It is important to understand that HCG injections do not make you lose weight – the diet does! The HCG injections are making the difference in how you lose weight:

  • Hormones deficiency and imbalance usually cause weight gain. Hence HCG has a big impact in this area because it is a pro-hormone. This helps the body to make more hormones and reset your metabolism to a normal level.
  • We are using a very low calorie diet to trigger HCG to help losing the body fat. HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body. It “unlocks” your body’s fat storage so that your improved metabolism can now burn these reserves of energy and power your regular body functions.
  • HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you are on a diet. You can lose weight by eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building), which counters the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown).
  • It makes it easier for you to stay on the diet and lose inches more rapidly from your body’s fat deposits, especially in the abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, neck and face areas
  • It makes your body less likely to return to its previous weight by establishing a new weight “set point.”


HCG Administration

Dr. Vinarski determines the various regimens of HCG administration. She will walk you through the process and ensure that you are 100% comfortable upon initiation of your program. We are using tiny ¼” insulin needles, usually administered in the belly. The shots are basically painless and extremely easy to self-administer.
BEWARE of Imposters! We only use real Pharmaceutical Grade HCG, which can only be prescribed by a Physician.

FDA Disclaimer: These weight reduction treatments include the injection of HCG, a drug which has not been approved by the FDA as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control.
There is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat,
or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie restricted diets.
