FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS HCG? AND HOW DOES IT HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS?
HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is a pregnancy hormone that causes a continuous release of fat, particularly from abnormal fat stores (hips, thighs, buttocks and belly). When combined with a ketogenic diet - no sugars and starches - this hormone forces the body to use fat as its primary source of fuel rather than carbs.

HCG diets involve hCG injections and severe calorie restrictions under the supervision of a medical professional. This combination converts your body into a high functioning fat-burning machine.
ARE THERE ANY PREPARATIONS FOR THE HCG DIET?
The most important preparation you can make is mentally committing to the diet. For the treatment to be effective, you must stick to the diet. For the first two days of your program, you should eat normally, including chocolate and fried foods. This is a critical step in the program because it prepares the body for the weight loss process. This also gives the HCG time to take effect and gradually reduce your appetite. On day three, you will begin your actual weight loss protocol. At this point, you MUST strictly adhere to the prescribed program. You also need to drink at least 100 ounces of water per day and keep in mind that Alcohol is not allowed in the diet.
WILL I REGAIN WEIGHT AFTER THE HCG DIET?
After the HCG diet, you will notice that your appetite has changed, your eating habits have changed, and your body has changed. This is the ideal time to start living a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your weight. You will discover that any amount of exercise will suffice to maintain a very healthy body and get your heart pumping. Your metabolism will be different after your hypothalamus has been reset, and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to binge.
CAN I EXERCISE WHILE ON THE HCG DIET??
While on the HCG diet, it is only possible to exercise in moderation. In fact, the only exercise you should perform is walking, as you are not consuming enough calories to engage in any vigorous exercise. Following completion of the program, we encourage you to resume your workout routine and even increase your exercise intensity.
ARE HCG SHOTS SAFE?
Yes! Given that the majority of the weight loss comes from fat and not from lean muscle, this diet is risk-free. This means you'll only lose unhealthy fat while gaining muscle, vitamins, and minerals. However, an HCG injection diet should not be followed by people who have certain medical conditions. But don’t worry, during your complimentary consultation at StudioMD Larchmont, we will thoroughly assess if you are a fit candidate for the HCG injection program.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH HCG SHOTS FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Although rare, mild side effects such as headache, restlessness, tiredness, or pain at injection sites may occur. You should always keep your doctor informed about any of these reactions, especially if they persist or worsen. But it is important to remember that HCG shots were prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
