The hCG diet has become well known among many men and women who have lived through years of unsuccessful dieting. hCG, in combination with a low calorie diet and proper exercise plan, often aids in fat loss while maintaining muscle mass.
hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a naturally occurring hormone produced in women in high quantities during pregnancy. The amount used for the diet is only a fraction of the amount produced during pregnancy. The hCG hormone is thought to shift the body's ability to burn fat without breaking down muscle. It will calibrate the patient's metabolism, resetting the patient's set point.

The patient is first seen by a doctor or physician assistant for an evaluation and prescribed a two-week supply of injections. The patient will return to the Clinic for a nurse or staff visit every two weeks to weigh in and receive another two weeks supply. The typical protocol is one injection every morning for six weeks. If another round is needed, the patient continues with diet and exercise for four weeks, but without the hCG injection. This prevents the body from becoming resistant to the hCG. After the four weeks off, another 4-6 week period of injections is indicated based on the amount of desired weight loss.
