HCG Diet Weston
The HCG Diet will change your life!
HCG is an abbreviation for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin which is a substance that is naturally found in a woman’s body during pregnancy in very large quantities. During pregnancy, the hormone allows the body to metabolize fat and use it as energy for both the mother and the fetus. However, for weight loss, only very small doses of HCG are used to help burn off excess stored fat while protecting the patient’s muscles and bones. It releases stored fats that are often the most difficult to metabolize through diet and exercise. Using HCG for weight loss is safe for both men and women and does not have any adverse effects.
Unlike other “diets”, this program reshapes and re-sculpts the body by releasing the excess/stored fat deposits on your body. If you follow this program correctly and faithfully, this unique process will reset your hypothalamus and metabolism potentially making your results sustainable!
It is also important to note that with our program is that when you have dropped 20 pounds, you have probably lost 20 pounds of abnormal fat.
Whereas with other diets, when you lose 20 lbs. you could be losing 10 pounds of lean body mass, 5 pounds of good fat reserves, and 5 pounds of abnormal fat. It targets only the abnormal fat
What’s great about the HCG Weight Loss program is that it rebalances your metabolism so it is much easier to keep the weight off once you complete the diet. Also, once you have completed the 30 day program and have rebalanced your metabolism, you can enjoy many delicious foods in moderation.

Physician Supervised Safe and Effective Weight Loss Results
One of the greatest benefits of the HCG diet is that you remain under medical supervision the entire time.
In addition to in-office appointments, patients also benefit from a new daily system to support you daily throughout the diet process.
While every patient has different results, most patients can expect to lose anywhere from a half-pound to two pounds daily during the active phase of an HCG diet. This phase usually lasts for 21 to 45 days depending on the specific HCG diet program recommended for you by Leda Di Meco. After you have completed the active phase of the HCG diet, the maintenance phase begins. Leda Di mecorecommends that her patients slowly begin to return to normal daily caloric intake while maintaining their newly formed healthy eating habits and exercise regimens to ensure the weight stays off for good during the maintenance phase.
Customized Plan for Your Unique Needs
Other weight loss programs tend to treat everyone the same.
Doctor Di Meco understand the importance of taking your prior health conditions, age, gender, previous weight loss attempts, and other factors into consideration before recommending a specific diet plan for you. Once she has a good understanding of your background, current health, and weight loss goals, Doctor Di Meco provides you with a suggested meal plan which is based on a limited daily caloric intake for the active phase of the program.
After HCG, it is possible to regain the weight if a patient intentionally eats badly, but after HCG, most patients literally don’t want to eat badly anymore. They have learned how to eat properly, they aren’t as hungry, and their weight is more likely to maintain within a reasonable zone, possibly from the hypothesized changes in the brain’s appetite centers that HCG may affect.

HCG and Weight Loss
Over 50 years ago, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons discovered HCG could be used for the treatment of obesity in men and non-pregnant women. His patients received a daily injection of the HCG for 40 days together with following a low 500 calorie diet. During his research Dr. Simeons noted several important factors including the relative lack of symptoms one would expect from a patient on a very low calorie diet. Of significance, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability as long as the low calorie diet was combined with HCG. Since then, untold numbers of dieters have used versions of this HCG diet to achieve fast, safe and sustainable weight loss.
How Much Weight Should A Patient Expect To Lose?
Individual results may vary. On average patients loose one half pound to one full pound a day while on the program.
Does The Weight Stay Off?
After the HCG diet, you will find your appetite has changed, you’re eating behavior will be changed and your body will of course, have changed. This is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight. You will find a minimum amount of exercise will be sufficient for maintaining a very healthy body- from yoga, to 15 minutes of cardio a day, or whatever you enjoy, that gets your heart moving. With your hypothalamus reset, your metabolism will be different and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat
Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day with HCG shots?
HCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeon`s protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In doing so, the weight lost comes directly from fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. For this reason, HCG dieters report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual.
Why the VLCD (very low calorie diet)?
HCG diet shots cause your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use. While you are consuming a very low amount of calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day. The result is your body using thousands of calories of fat from your body each day, the reason HCG dieters lose 1 to 2 lbs. of fat or more, per day.
How long have people been using the hCG diet plan? Is it safe?
The hCG diet dates back to the 1950s, when a doctor discovered that obese people treated with small doses of hCG experienced decreased appetite and rapid weight loss, particularly in problem areas like the buttocks, hips, thighs, and stomach. In recent years the diet has drastically increased in popularity and has been regarded as a quick and safe way to lose weight.
What does the low calorie diet consist of?
The very low calorie diet consists mostly of lean meat, vegetables, and fruit. Only water, tea, and coffee beverages are allowed with certain types of sugar substitutes. Our Doctor and medical team will advise you on making the appropriate food choices while on the hCG treatment.
Patients have reported little to no side effects. You may experience a mild headache and mild hunger in the first couple of days of treatment which will wane as your body adjusts to the diet.
If I eat 500 calories per day won`t I lose the weight anyway?
A Contrary to popular belief if you follow a 500 calorie-a-day diet, you will lose weight anyway, however you will not lose the same weight in the same way as you do with HCG. Your goal is to lose ONLY fat, not just weight. Following a 500 calorie per day diet will leave you fatigued and irritable, and within a few days you will start to retain water due to being “protein deficient”.
Without the HCG, you will lose both fat and muscle just as if you were on any “normal” diet. If you don’t believe us, please try a 500 calorie-a-day diet without the HCG. Also remember you are getting 2000 calories from your fat each day which is why you will not be hungry, even though you are following a low calorie diet.
Some people will have a tough first few days depending on how “clean” your diet and lifestyle were previous to starting this program/protocol. Some people will suffer from “withdrawal effects”. Plateaus are normal with this program. It usually presents in a stair step fashion with a consistent large drop in weight followed by a slight plateau, or a slower loss for a few days.
Typically one significant plateau occurs in the second half of the program/protocol that can last 4-6 days. This is normal and will resolve itself in time so do not be concerned. Your body will continue to reshape itself even during a plateau. Don’t get hung up on the scales, inches are even more important and you will also be losing a lot of inches, even during plateaus.
If a plateau does occur, a way to break it is to have an “apple day”. On your apple day you drink a minimum of one ounce of water per pound of body weight during the day and eat slices of apples throughout the day. (maximum of six apples) That night have steak and a tomato. (If you don’t like steak you can have chicken breast.) The apple day usually resolves the plateau and weight loss occurs the following morning.
We are here to support you and answer any questions you may have. This program WILL work for you if you work the program exactly as recommended. We have seen way too many success cases with people who have done fantastically with this program, but who have had no success with any other diet program.
BEFORE AND AFTER
Use of HCG to treat obesity or for medical weight loss treatment is not an FDA approved use of this prescription drug. A patient’s physician may prescribe HCG for an unapproved medical purpose or off-label use of the drug because the use of this drug has not generally caused serious adverse side effects when administered to patients for its approved use in treating infertility. Allowing physicians professional discretion to prescribe HCG in treating obesity or for patient weight loss is not based upon any governmental determination that HCG is effective for such use.
The use of HCG to treat obesity or for use in medical weight loss treatment combined with a low calorie diet with recommended exercise is not an FDA approved use of HCG and is prescribed at the discretion of our physician based upon the physician’s clinical assessment of the patient’s medical history and diagnostic laboratory report combined with the perceived benefit to be derived by the patient from the medication when combined with a healthy diet plan and/or exercise.
In regards to hCG this is the FDA’s Statement: INDICATIONS AND USAGE: hCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
If you have a history of heart disease and are taking nitrates for it.
If you have diabetes and take insulin by injection only.
If you have a history of cancer.
If you have ever had a Stroke or Pulmonary Embolism
Although a patient may lose 5 pounds a week or more on the HCG diet, Weston HCG Center does not guarantee results. Weight loss depends on many variables, such as adherence to the diet, how physically active the patient is, and how well they respond to the HCG, that are completely out of the control of Weston HCG Center, its staff, and its Medical Director. Though we will provide you with the tools and information to enable your success, we can not guarantee that you will lose weight.
