At IHS Medical Group in Los Angeles, we are dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of our patients through individualized weight management treatment programs. Our facilities are considered among the best in the U.S., and our multidisciplinary team offers non-surgical options for weight loss. No matter what type of treatment is needed, we will prescribe a program from a variety of options, including hormone balancing, Metabolic weight loss, medical treatment, or hCG – all designed to optimize weight loss results

What is hCG?

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, it is a naturally occurring hormone that develops in the placenta of women when they are pregnant. After about 3 weeks of pregnancy, a woman’s placenta will supply up to 1 million units of HCG in order to send the message to the brain and the body that there is a pregnancy and developing fetus, this is crucial because if a woman is not reaching adequate caloric intake for the day, that can be dangerous to the fetus, therefore, the brain sends another message to the body to unlock and release stored abnormal fat and dump 2,000-3,000 k/cal of fat calories into the bloodstream to nourish the fetus.

How Do hCG Weight Loss Programs Work?

When we give HCG injections or sublingually to the body, it sends a message, in a much more subtle way it will still cause weight loss in the same way as above, the brain does not know there is not a pregnancy, it is still getting that HCG hormonal message. Therefore, on a low-calorie diet and the HCG injection daily we see very rapid weight loss which is safe and effective

How hCG Injections Can Jump-Start Your Weight Loss Efforts

While most people think the secret to successful weight loss is diet and exercise, sometimes that’s not enough. That’s why Victor Nazarian, DC, at IHS Medical Group Los Angeles often recommends a plan that combines human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) hormone injections along with a low-calorie diet. By combining the two, you can develop a stronger metabolism and shed unwanted weight at the same time. The addition of HCG injections can augment a very low-calorie diet to help promote weight loss, especially for dieters who have a difficult time staying on a diet

How much weight can you lose on the HCG Diet?

Our clients report a loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day. At the very least you can expect to lose half a pound a day and at the most, 3 plus pounds a day. Men generally lose more weight than women. Women typically lose 15 lbs on the 23-day program and up to 30 lbs on the 46-day program if following the program strictly. Men usually lose 20 to 25 lbs on the 23-day program and up to 40 lbs on the 46-day program if following the program correctly.

How about the safety and side effects of hCG?

Because it is a natural substance, this program is completely safe and has been used successfully for more than 50years. It is virtually 100% effective for everyone, except if you are pregnant or nursing.

What are the benefits of hCG injections?

Even though hCG isn’t proven effective for weight loss, there are several possible positive benefits that keep people coming back. hCG injections may:

  1. Regulate or suppress your appetite
  2. Speed up your metabolism
  3. Increase testosterone (more in men)
  4. Regulate estrogen and progesterone levels
