How the hCG Diet Jumpstarts Weight Loss

If you’ve resolved to lose weight this year, explore how the hCG diet may give you the leg up you need to finally win the bat

The statistics surrounding weight in the United States are eye-opening — two out of three adults are overweight and one out of three is considered obese. If you’re struggling with your own weight issues, clearly you’re not alone. The good news is that there are many ways that you can gain the upper hand on your weight problem, especially if you have the right approach — and the right team in your corner.

At GYN Aesthetics & Wellness, our own Scarlet Molina is a diet and nutrition specialist who’s dedicated to helping our patients lose weight, and keep it off. Ms. Molina offers several different approaches to weight loss and the hCG diet is one of them. To help you better explore your options, we review the hCG diet here and why it’s a great technique for jumpstarting your weight-loss journey.

Behind the hCG diet

The hCG diet is a very-low-calorie diet that’s combined with the use of an hCG topical cream. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, which is a hormone that women produce during pregnancy to nourish a growing fetus. In fact, when a woman undergoes a pregnancy test, it’s this hormone that’s being measured.

While the role that hormones play remains somewhat of a mystery, we do know that these tiny chemical messengers are incredibly powerful and oversee almost every function in the human body. In the case of hCG, this hormone’s central role is to feed a growing baby, but it’s also believed that it boosts metabolism.

As part of the hCG diet, you apply a topical cream that contains hCG directly onto your skin, where it’s absorbed into your system. The other part of this weight-loss program is a strict 500-calorie diet. Together, the two components of the diet can jumpstart your weight loss.

Ongoing counseling is key to your success

At our practice, we don’t believe in just giving you a weight-loss program and sending you on your way, especially when it comes to the hCG diet. Because of the restricted calorie intake, it’s important that you still meet your nutritional needs, which is where our help comes in.

Ms. Molina is invested in your success and tracks your progress every step of the way. Her most important role with the hCG diet is to provide you with nutritional counseling that helps you lose weight while remaining healthy. Ms. Molina prides herself on tailoring her weight-loss programs to each patient, so if you opt for the hCG diet, she works with you to find the foods that work best for your unique needs and goals.
