HCG Weight Loss in Atlanta
Physician-Guided HCG Diet for Rapid Weight Loss at Atlanta Men’s Clinic
Human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG, is a hormone found in both men and women. Known for its role in helping the female body support and maintain pregnancy, hCG is also important for male reproductive health because it stimulates testosterone production.
HCG is FDA-approved to treat certain medical conditions in both men and women. When prescribed as part of a physician-monitored medical weight loss program, the hCG diet may help patients achieve excellent weight loss results.
HCG should only be taken under the supervision of a board-certified physician. At Atlanta Men’s Clinic, our doctors tailor weight loss programs to your body. Your doctor will help you manage your diet, fitness, and other health behaviors throughout the duration of your hCG weight loss program.
How Does the HCG Diet Program Work to Achieve Quick Weight Loss?
HCG is combined with a low-calorie diet and physician-led protocol to achieve weight loss. However, hCG helps direct how the body loses weight.
There are various types of fats in the body. While many are beneficial to your health, others could be detrimental. Visceral fat is an example of a detrimental fat. Visceral fat is fat that has been stored in the abdomen. It is found in the crevices between some of the body’s most vital organs in the abdominal cavity, such as the intestines, liver, and kidneys. These fat deposits release hormones and chemicals into the body that can cause inflammation, leading to health risks such as cardiovascular disease.
HCG prompts the body to break down visceral fat. Under the hCG diet program, the body uses visceral fat to complete its calorie and energy needs, decreasing hunger sensations.
How the HCG Diet Helps You Lose Weight Fast Without Losing Muscle Mass
Hormone deficiencies and imbalances can contribute to weight gain. HCG helps promote the production of other hormones, like testosterone, and may help restore the natural balance of hormones that help the body maintain a healthy weight.
When people lose weight with traditional diet plans, they also lose muscle mass because the body breaks down muscle tissue for energy. HCG helps facilitate quick weight loss while maintaining muscle mass.
Medical weight loss plans using hCG are short-term, often lasting approximately 30 days. Many patients see rapid weight loss during this time. After completing the hCG weight loss program, patients can slowly re-introduce restricted foods back into their diet and slowly resume a regular exercise routine under the guidance of their doctor.
HCG and the FDA
As of March 23rd, 2020 the United States FDA (Food and Drug Administration) reclassified hCG and now requires a special biologics license for compliance in handling. This effectively stopped the production of hCG by compounding pharmacies which drastically reduced the drug supply nationwide.
However, Atlanta Men’s Clinic has taken the extra steps and expense to make sure our patients can continue treatment and receive prescription medications from only the best pharmacies in the country who are licensed to produce hCG under its brand name “Pregnyl.”
