HCG Diet

Shed pounds quickly with the proven HCG protocol.

 

Overview

HCG Diet

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a naturaland 100% safe hormone/protein that is already present in all human tissue. The HCG Weight Loss Protocol combines a very low-calorie diet (VLCD) with HCG injections to achieve rapid weight loss. The HCG hormone serves as an appetite suppressant that mitigates hunger and cravings, thereby enabling patients to burn deep-seated visceral fat for energy. The Danik HCG program is unique because we assess the patient based on body composition, blood test results, and expectations to ensure this is the right diet for the patient and one at which he or she can succeed.

Benefits

  • Rapid weight loss.
  • No exercise is required.
  • Diet eliminates unhealthy starches and sugars to stabilize blood-sugar levels.
  • The focus on lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables paves the way to permanently healthier food choices and portion control.
  • Rapid results create a momentum to stay on the diet and avoid cheating.
  • Weight-loss reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, some cancers, gallbladder disease, gout, sleep apnea, and asthma.
  • Increased energy.
  • Improved performance.

HCG Treatment Plan

In addition to injectable HCG, Danik also offers sublingual HCG taken by mouth. Prior to treatment, every patient must complete a medical history and undergo blood tests to ensure no medical conditions exist that would preclude starting the diet. Once the test results are in, the patient’s weight-loss consultant will recommend one of several HCG protocols based on the patient’s weight, BMI, and personal goals. It’s worth noting that Danik is one of the exclusive providers to the HCG+ Advanced program, which is specially formulated for patients who need to lose between 35 and 80 pounds.

 

During the first two days of the diet, patients must eat as much as they can in order to prepare for the VLCD that will follow. Initial hunger will pass as the HCG starts reprogramming your hypothalamus to adjust to a rise in metabolic rate as your body starts burning large amounts of visceral fat for energy.

From this point on, your body will sustain itself by burning fat, and you should experience ongoing weight loss that will be monitored during your weekly follow-ups. If you hit a plateau, your clinician may make changes to your diet plan in order to jumpstart the fat burning. And if you’re still feeling hunger pangs, an additional appetite suppressant may be prescribed.

 

 

All programs include:

  • Daily HCG hormone
    •  A low calorie diet plan, diet tips, and recipes
    •  Step-by-step medical supervision and counseling
    •  BMI Analysis
    •  One-on-one follow-up visits with a clinician to monitor health and weight loss

Frequently Asked Questions

HCG Injections vs. Homeopathic or HCG Drops

HCG injections are highly recommended and more effective. Homeopathic HCG is not real HCG; it is a diluted version of it to take orally. Authentic HCG must be prescribed and supervised by a licensed medical practitioner.

How does the medical HCG Diet work?

When HCG is injected in small amounts into the body in conjunction with a very low calorie diet it triggers the Hypothalamus (a part of the brain that controls the nervous system and endocrine system) to used stored fat as its main energy source. This allows your body to burn fat that is converted into 2000 calories a day where the vitamins, minerals and proteins are given back to your body from that fat tissue via the blood stream. This process reprograms your body and metabolic rate to maintain the weight loss post diet.

Is it safe for men?

Yes. Both men and women contain HCG in their bodies; this hormone just shows higher levels in pregnant women. Men will not have any side effects, will not be feminized or experience any changes in sex on this medical weight loss program.

How much weight can I lose?

Studies have shown dieters losing at the most three pounds plus per day and at the least half a pound per day. For faster weight loss include more vegetables in each meal and increase your fiber intake. You must drink lots of water; it is a key essential to this diet.

Is it safe to lose up to 3 pounds plus a day?

Yes, while on the HCG diet it is safe to lose that much weight on a daily basis. By following the HCG diet protocol the weight loss would come directly from abnormal fat tissues that your body would only use in an emergency and not your muscles that contain those much needed vitamins and minerals essential for good health. For this reason is why you lose all the weight, eat so little and still feel good without any negative health risks.

Why a low calorie diet?

The HCG will flood your body with calories by mobilizing the abnormal fat out of that storage location and releasing it into the body while consuming a low calorie diet.

Won’t I be hungry with only 500 calories?

It is common to feel hungry the first week of the program. The first two days you will eat as much as you can to fill your body with fat and calories to help you get through those first few days on the VLCD. The hunger will pass as the HCG starts reprogramming your hypothalamus to adjust your metabolic rate and flooding your body with calories from the fat being released, that even the tiniest portions will be satisfying.

Can’t I lose weight just on a low calorie diet?

You would lose weight but you will burn up the structural fat needed for your muscles. HCG is what confuses the body to use your stored abnormal fat tissues that are in the body as a protective mechanism in order to prevent death and starvation.

What do I need to do to start the HCG diet?

Prior to your treatment, you must come in for a complimentary consultation with a Danik medical practitioner to perform a general health assessment to be sure you are a candidate for the HCG diet.

When do I start the HCG diet?

Men can start on the HCG diet immediately after their lab results are cleared to start. It is recommended that women start after their menstrual period and must stop the HCG during their menstrual period but continue the very low calorie diet to maintain their weight loss if not it will delay your period and you will have a plateau around that time.

Are there any side effects?

Side effects have rarely been reported while using HCG for weight loss. In some rare cases, people have reported some nausea, fatigue and irritation or swelling to injection site. In some cases, patients have reported better sleep, health, and increased libido.

Can I “cheat” on the HCG diet?

No. You must follow precisely what your practitioner recommends for your diet program not to reverse the effects of the HCG injections and affect your weight loss goals.

Are the injections painful?

Each patient’s tolerance to pain varies. The needle used to administer the HCG is very fine and relatively painless.

What is a plateau?

Some patients have reported a plateau (no changes in weight) while on the diet. Usually it will happen for women around their menstrual period due to fluid retention, possible pregnancy, not following VLCD, etc. If you experience this while on the program you should let your medical practitioner know and remind them during your follow up visit and follow the “Apple Day” diet.

Will I gain weight after the HCG program?

You may gain minimal weight due to the increase in your calorie intake. Once you are done with the treatment you must continue to follow the low calorie protocol a few days before resuming to a regular calorie diet. Your body will feel different and you will be accustomed to eating healthier and feeling good. This is a great opportunity to maintain and use what you’ve learned to keep the weight off and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Since your hypothalamus is reset, your metabolic rate will have changed and you are able to eat moderately without the need to overeat and minimal exercise will be sufficient to maintaining your new body.

What do I need to do to start the HCG diet?

Prior to your treatment, you must come in for a complimentary consultation with a Danik medical practitioner who will perform a general health assessment and send you to a lab for blood tests.

When do I start the HCG diet?

Men can start the HCG diet immediately after their lab results clear them to proceed. It is recommended that women start after their menstrual periodbut stop taking the HCG during their next menstrual cycle while continuing the VLCD. This is to avoid any weight gain while off the hormone.

5-Step Individualized Weight Loss Protocol

SlimMD is a 5-step, physician-supervised weight-loss program. It is designed to give Danik patients the individualized guidance they need to understand their metabolism, address their weight-management challenges, and achieve their desired weight-loss results.

Whether you suffer from clinical obesity or have only a few dress sizes to drop, Danik’s clinicians are dedicated to helping each patient get to the root of his or her problem. Only then can an effective treatment plan be developed, not just for the short term, but for a lifetime of good health through long-term weight management. With this goal in mind, some or all of the following SlimMD phases may be recommended.

SlimMD Program Phases

Step 1: SlimMD Initial Medical Assessment
SlimMD Program

First patients undergo a medical assessment and complete composition analysis to determine BMI (Body Mass Index), fat percentage, and BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). It is at this stage, that your clinician will discuss your health and weight history, food-consumption patterns, and lifestyle choices. This will allow the clinician to clearly identify your weight concerns, possible health issues related to weight gain, and any food addictions or bad habits that need to be addressed.

 

Step 2: SlimMD Treatment Protocol
SlimMD Program

Based on the information gathered, a variety of diet regimens will be presented. All target the deep-seated abnormal fat that is especially difficult to eliminate on your own despite how much you exercise and watch your calories. Each treatment protocol includes before-and-after photos and measurements, meal plans, recipes, calorie charts, online resource materials, and weekly one-on-one clinical guidance to monitor your progress and reassess the program’s efficacy should alterations be required.

Slim Down Protocol
(8 – 18 lbs.)
Overweight Protocol
(19 – 29 lbs.)
Obesity Protocol
(30+ lbs.)

 

Step 3: SlimMD Progress Evaluation
SlimMD Program

After completing the prescribed weight-loss regimen, patients undergo a second assessment to document their post-treatment success as indicated by new photos, new measurements, and a second composition analysis. At this time, patients are guided through nutrition and lifestyle counseling to see what permanent changes are called for in order to make ongoing weight management part of a healthier and more vigorous lifestyle.

 

Step 4: SlimMD Long-Term Maintenance
SlimMD Program

Based on whether you’ve reached your ideal weight or still have more pounds to shed, an extended treatment plan may be recommended that includes:

  • Continued Weight Loss Management
  • Maintenance Support Supplements
  • Lipotropic Injections
  • Personalized Diets Based on Blood Type

Danik doesn’t just send its patients packing after their treatment is over. We start with you and stay with you, providing both medical and psychological support for as long as you need it.

 

Step 5: SlimMD Slim & Tone Program
SlimMD Program

By this time, Danik’s patients have reached or are within just of few pounds of their weight-loss goal. However weight loss – especially if it’s extreme – may leave the skin lax. That means the patient will still need some fine-tuning in order to appear fit, taught, and well-contoured. This is when SlimMD clients are offered a variety of pain-free, non-invasive toning and trimming options. All are designed to firm and define, while helping the patient keep off the pounds lost.

 

Freedom of Choice

Under the SlimMD umbrella of weight-loss options, one size does not fit all. This diversified approach allows patients to shed 8 – 100+ pounds rapidly or gradually, with or without medication, and with or without a highly restricted diet. You make the commitment. We’ll make it happen.
