What is the HCG or Clean Start Diet Plan?
The “Original HCG Diet Plan” was first published in 1954, by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a medical doctor out of Rome, Italy. Dr. Simeons’ protocol has been used for years and although many newer programs vary with their suggestions, this diet DOES have a strict calorie restriction so you must adhere to our instructions to lose your weight desired. This plan is a medically supervised “hormone diet” that involves taking a small dosage of HCG hormone (injections or drops) while following a very low calorie high protein diet. The Average reported weight loss is .5 to .8 lbs per day. This program is ideal for both men and women.
Our CLEAN START weight loss may begin or end with a full detox (if desired but not required) and incorporates self-administered injections like what was seen on the popular Dr Oz Show. Our program is proven to target fat, not muscle. So the weight loss you will receive, is going to be primarily fat loss, not muscle. This is very critical to understand why we use the hormone in small amounts. Also, since you are primarily losing FAT ONLY, your metabolism will quickly reset to a “normal” range allowing you to more easily keep the weight off long term! Unlike the Dr Emma weight loss program seen on Dr Oz, our patients aren’t hungry, and also lose fat, not muscle. We can also add weekly injections of B12 or Lipo-C to this plan to help with energy and further detoxification during program. Most say that when they follow the CLEAN START guidelines they feel GREAT and have plenty of energy and are NOT hungry despite the low calorie diet. Remember this diet just forces your body to use its fat stores for energy instead of sugars and fats in your diet. Your fat stores ARE ENOUGH to maintain your mental clarity and focus!
At Southeast Med-Spa all clients receive a CLEAN START package of information that contains everything needed prepare you for success. We also meet with each participant weekly for support and guidance while you participate. We believe it’s best to enroll in a complete supportive program for weight loss. Research has shown that when you have support and don’t try to DIY you can have an 86% higher chance of full success to meet your goals!
What is the duration of treatment?
Clients who need to lose 15 pounds (7 kg.) or less require 26 days of treatment with 23 daily injections. The extra three days are needed because all patients must continue the 500-calorie diet for three days after the last injection. This is a very essential part of the treatment, because if they start eating normally as long as there is even a trace of HCG in their body they put on weight alarmingly at the end of the treatment. After three days, when all of the HCG has been eliminated, this does not happen because the blood is no longer saturated with food and can thus accommodate an extra influx from the intestines without increasing its volume by retaining water. You cannot do this program for ANY less than 26 days. If a client has more weight to lose, he or she can continue the diet for up to 43 days but that is the maximum allowed time for the diet to remain safe and effective. However, if the person continues to have excess fat and extreme weight loss is needed, after a rest period of healthy eating and exercise the patient CAN return for another round. Because we want people to be successful, the patient must not have gained more than 2-3 lbs between cycles for us to allow them to continue.
