HCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone that is produced by the placenta to help maintain the uterine lining. In addition to playing a role in pregnancy, HCG may reduce appetite and encourage the body to burn excess fat stores; this is why it is used in our weight loss regimen.
The HCG diet is used for dramatic weight loss, utilizing a combination of HCG injections and low-calorie diet to help patients lose 1 – 1.5 pounds per day. At the Grand Rapids Men’s Clinic, we believe that this rapid weight loss is caused by the HCG breaking down excess fat stores in order to provide the body with all the calories it needs.
The calories consumed while following an HCG diet regimen will vary depending on the patient, but daily caloric intake will ordinarily be between 500 and 1,000 calories. Depending on your healthcare needs and our recommendations, some foods may not be permitted while following the HCG weight loss and diet program.
Foods that the HCG diet recommends against consuming include:

HCG is a hormone that is thought to curb appetite and cause the body to rely on excess fat stores for energy, providing the additional nutrition that is no longer provided by food under the HCG diet regimen. HCG shots are injected subcutaneously (below the skin), usually in the hip, outer upper arm, thigh, and abdomen.
There is no clinical evidence that demonstrates that HCG shots curb appetite or burn excess fat stores, and the FDA has not approved HCG for weight loss. However, many practitioners of homeopathic medicine maintain that HCG injections are effective for weight loss.
Most healthcare providers recommend that you consume an average of about 2,000 calories a day. The HCG diet plan recommends an extremely low-calorie intake of 500-1,000 calories a day, which many physicians consider potentially harmful due to possible complications, such as heart problems. It is important to discuss your dietary needs with us before trying any new diet.
Clinical evidence does not support the HCG diet. Many patients who participate in the HCG diet lose weight due to the extreme calorie restriction, but have difficulty keeping the weight off. Talk to our experts here at Grand Rapids Men’s Health Clinic about the likelihood of the HCG diet working for you.
If diet after diet has failed you, then the HCG weight loss and diet program may be the way for you to shed those extra pounds. Call Grand Rapids Men’s Health Clinic at (616) 226-6966 or contact us online!
