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.

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

hCG Medical Weight Loss FAQ

Is an hCG weight loss program safe?

Yes, for the majority of patients in good overall health, an hCG weight loss program is generally considered very safe and effective. Our team will review your current health and medical history to ensure there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the fat-busting benefits of an hCG weight loss plan. You will also have weekly consultations with our team to monitor your progress, results, and safety.

How much weight can I lose with an hCG medical weight loss plan?

How much weight you can lose depends on a number of factors. These may include your current weight, health, and your body's response to the treatment plan. On average, most patients can expect to lose about 1 – 3 pounds per day during their hCG treatment program.

Does hCG help reduce hunger cravings?

Yes, it can. Part of the hCG weight loss plan is a daily 500 – 800 calorie diet, which can have many people worrying about feeling hungry. While a restricted calorie diet normally may cause hunger pains, hCG helps to regulate the brain's response to hunger and can significantly reduce appetite. This helps patients stick to the reduced-calorie diet while still maintaining energy levels and comfort.

How long is an hCG medical weight loss program?

Every plan is customized for each patient's unique weight loss needs. During your consultation, we will examine you, review your medical history, and listen to your goals to help you create a plan that meets your needs. On average, most patients see the best results with a program that lasts about 3 – 6 weeks. During your treatment plan, we will monitor your progress and can make adjustments as needed.
