HCG Medical Weight Loss Program

The HCG True Diet Program


The HCG Diet (also known as the human chorionic gonadotropinTrue Diet) offers a unique medical weight loss program to patients desiring a healthy, effective weight loss and management program.


The program has the advantages of medical assistance and supervision to ensure your safety, while enabling you to lose weight rapidly, motivating you to achieve your weight loss goals.


HCG Tells Your Body that it is Pregnant to Start the Weight Loss Process


The weight loss program is based on the amazing power of HCG, a natural hormone that is normally at high levels during pregnancy but has the ability to change one’s metabolism.


HCG “tricks” your body into thinking that it is pregnant, which changes your metabolism to burn the fat while eating a very low-calorie diet.


HCG is the hormone naturally secreted during a pregnancy to ensure nutrition is present for the fetus to grow.


During times of starvation or very low-calorie diets, when the body has HCG flowing within it, the body mobilizes the abnormal deposits of fat for nutrition.


Thus, when these fat stores are being utilized, the weight drops precipitously.


It is not uncommon to lose one to two pounds a day on this diet.


What Types of Food Should You Eat on the HCG Diet?


Normally, without HCG, ingesting a very low-calorie diet would result in fatigue, loss of energy, and give your hunger pains.


HCG enables the body to lose the weight while maintaining your energy level and decreasing one’s appetite.


Because HCG pulls nutrients from the abnormal fat stores, it supplies the needed energy calories to the body so fatigue is usually not a factor.


Moreover, because the body sees lots of nutrients in the blood, the appetite center in the brain is not stimulated, minimizing any feeling of hunger.


The 4 Phases of the HCG Diet


The HCG True Diet is based on the use of HCG combined with a very low-calorie diet to change your metabolism to burn the extra fat and lose the extra pounds.


There are 4 simple phases of the HCG Diet


Only certain foods are allowed during the diet, which Dr. Gertzman will provide.


(Phase 1) A loading phase


This phase generally lasts 2 days.  During this phase, you eat as many fatty foods with a high amount of calories.  This allows your body to store the fat which will let you last through phase 2.


(Phase 2) A very low-calorie diet


This phase of the HCG diet is the most familiar as your diet needs to consist of roughly 500 calories while receiving HCG injections.


This phase lasts 26 to 40 days.


(Phase 3) A maintenance diet


This phase is also known as a stabilization phase where starches and sugars are completely avoided.  Please consult Dr. Gertzman about HCG approved foods for this phase.


Your digestive system must adapt to the hormonal imbalances that may occur during the diet.


(Phase 4) A long-term lifetime diet


Just like any diet process, it is a lifetime commitment and not a short time commitment.


Continue to eat moderately and maintain portion control as you eat.
