What is The HCG Diet?

The HCG diet allows men and women to take advantage of the interactions of the human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) hormone with the metabolism to eat away body fat stores while observing a low-calorie diet. Unlike many other diets, the HCG diet plan is able to unlock unwanted fat deposits to be used as energy, and allows patients to maintain energy and feel satiated even while taking in as few as 500 calories per day. The body has different types of fat, and while some fats are necessary for sustaining health, others are stored by the body for emergencies and become extremely difficult to burn. Dr. Sokolowski’s HCG diet plan allows these fat stores to be converted into energy resulting in safe and sustainable weight loss.

The HCG hormone can release 1500-2000 calories in fat per day to be metabolized by the body, which is the only reason a 500 calorie per day diet does not cause dieters to feel tired and hungry. Without HCG targeting the unwanted fat and calories, the patient would be miserable with hunger, experience mood fluctuations, and face nutritional deficiencies attempting to sustain a diet as low as 500 calories per day. Irene Sokolowski, M.D. in Fort Collins can help patients achieve their weight loss goals by tailoring diets to suit specific needs and creating meal plans unique for each individual.

Most diets begin weight loss by draining water weight and eating away at muscle. These diets do not have a strong effect on stored fat which can build up in various parts of the body such as the shoulders, upper arms, hips, thighs, stomach and buttocks. The HCG diet, however, tends to target areas that have the largest fat stores, and for this reason, patients have a much leaner appearance after finishing an HCG diet plan.
The HCG hormone also works with the hypothalamus and metabolism, and most patients end up with a more efficient metabolism by the end of their HCG diet program. The HCG diet at Xanadu Med Spa can also improve health by helping people to implement healthier food choices. These healthier foods can lead to detoxifying the hypothalamus and enabling it to clear itself of the chemical build-up that could be preventing weight loss and re-establishing the healthy functioning of the hypothalamus.
