What is hCG?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that is naturally produced in large quantities during pregnancy. After researching and perfecting the hCG protocol for about 20 years, Dr. ATW Simeons found that a very specific 500-calorie diet, combined with small, regular doses of hCG, caused the body to release abnormal fat.
How long is the HCG Diet?
Depending on the desired level of weight loss, Houston area patients will either be placed on the 26-day diet plan (complete with 23 days worth of daily injections or sublingual drops to be taken twice per day), or the 43-day diet plan, (including 40 days worth of daily injections or twice-daily drops). Both plans are followed by a three-week maintenance period. The HCG Diet Conroe approach favored by the staff and clients opts for the virtually pain-free self-given injections as superior to the sublingual drops.
What’s included in the HCG diet package?
For Conroe and Houston area patients, included in the HCG Diet package is an initial weight loss consultation. You will meet with a diet counselor and physician to discuss your plan under the guidance of a premier Houston wellness center. Here we will explore your medical history, current medications and supplements, diet, overall lifestyle, Body Mass Index and your goal weight. We will go over the Houston HCG diet plan designed for you in detail. You will be given hCG medication and lab work will be done if fasting. If not fasting, you will need to come back for labs at your earliest convenience; you will be given a copy of lab findings during one of your weekly weigh-ins. During the hCG phase of your diet, you will be given B12 shots at your weekly weigh in. Our knowledgeable staff that makes us one of the top Houston wellness clinics in the area will be here for your support through all stages of your weight loss plan, should any questions or concerns arise.
How much weight can I expect to lose?
