What Is hCG Weight Loss?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a naturally occurring hormone that is present in both men and women. However, during pregnancy, it is produced in large amounts in order to prepare the womb for the embryo. This hormone has been beneficial as a weight loss aid (along with restricted caloric intake) since the 1950s, and it can effectively enhance weight loss results for patients who suffer from stubborn, unwanted fat. The hCG hormone works by targeting nutrients that are stored in fat cells, converting their content, and sending the vital nutrients back into the bloodstream. With this hormone treatment, fat cells can shrink to only a fraction of their original size. Within our state-of-the-art facility, Dr. J. Timothy Katzen and his team are happy to offer this treatment option for Beverly Hills, CA individuals for safe and effective weight loss. Learn more about hCG weight loss treatments by scheduling your initial consultation at our innovative practice.

"Dr Katzen Saved my Life! - No amount of words can describe how grateful I am to have found this doctor! I had illegal silicone injected in my buttocks when I was 23. Little did I know that they will almost kill me 10 years later! End stage renal failure and dialysis is not exactly what I wanted to hear at 33 years of age. There was no significant evidence to prove if the free floating silicone was responsible for any of it but it was a theory from my amazing kidney doctor. For 2 years I researched all the facts, had to get on the transplant list, paid doctors for consults to see if anyone can help me and all I seemed to find was Drs that either wouldn’t operate on me stating that I’m a “liability” or drs that said well it looks fine maybe you shouldn’t touch it. Finally I found Dr Katzen! I watched his videos, read the reviews and somehow felt that maybe there might be hope for me still. I had scheduled a consult with Dr Katzen via SKYPE and it was for FREE! I made a list of so many questions or concerns I had and he answered them all. We spoke for nearly an hour. I never felt pressured of any kind and his team helped me with anything And everything! I needed to know I tried everything to save my life so after 4 months I scheduled my surgery. The dr and the staff gave me all the information I needed such as were to stay for the after care, how long to stay for and what I would need since I was coming from NY. So there I was going in to surgery and my future was in his hands. 8 hours it took to get this out of me! It has migrated to the hips and the groin area! But it was all out and I was alive! According to the other doctors I wouldn’t have made it thru a surgery like that. Yet in the hands of Dr Katzen there I was alive and happy. Fast forward 6 months after... I feel like a whole new person! The scars altho all the way around my body are tiny, my body looks better now then before, I feel amazing and the most important fact I no longer need a kidney transplant, nor do I need dialysis my calcium stabilized I’m no longer anemic and I get my period every month not 2 times a year like before. Thank you Dr Katzen and your whole teem for GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK! I sit here and cry happy tears because at 36 my life did not end, I now have a future, I now have hope and I will forever be grateful for you Dr Katzen who took a chance on me and saved my life! Thank you!"- Y. / RealSelf / Mar 18, 2020

Candidates for Medically Supervised Weight Loss
Candidates for an hCG weight loss program are men and women who are willing to stick to a restricted diet and exercise routine. While the hormone will help to reduce your appetite, it is still essential that you stick to your diet plan. You may also need to speak with your primary care physician to ensure that you are a good candidate for hCG weight loss treatments. Additionally, Dr. Katzen and his skilled team can meet with you during a thorough consultation to determine if medically supervised weight loss is appropriate for you.
Our Program for Sustainable Weight Loss
At our Beverly Hills practice, an hCG weight loss program is most often conducted for 3 – 6 weeks to jumpstart long-term weight loss habits. Along with hCG, patients will follow a diet that is almost free of fat and contains 500 – 800 calories on a daily basis. Though this may seem very small, the natural hormone is so powerful that it works to effectively reduce your appetite. The hCG can be self-delivered through intramuscular injections or taken orally as either pellets or drops that dissolve under the tongue. Throughout your treatment, you will meet with our team through weekly consultations in order to evaluate your process. After the hCG weight loss program is complete, patients should stick to a healthy lifestyle with proper eating habits and exercise.
Along with exceptional weight loss results, hCG can also provide a number of additional benefits, including:
- Increased energy
- Reduced GI problems
- Improved immune system
- Lowered blood sugar
- A kickstart to an overall healthier lifestyle
