why-hcg-works-pierce-medicalIf you haven’t heard of HCG, you’ll want to read this article carefully. For those that have and have tried the non-prescription type have been “taken,” sorry to say. Not every HCG is the same. But first, what is it?

HCG, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone, metabolizes fat in your body and helps to curb your appetite. Our program is physician supervised and includes extensive lab work up, hormone level check, body analysis, EKG and weekly blood pressure checks.

HCG does not make you lose weight – our specialized diet – high protein/low calorie – makes you lose weight!

You can lose up to 1 pound a day within a 40 day cycle while following a 500 calorie a day diet, coupled with 85-100 grams of protein daily. We use only pharmaceutical grade HCG, which you can choose to have in injection or sub-lingual tablet form. We encourage weekly office visits for your own accountability, where we will do blood pressure checks, weigh ins and one on one counseling. Women will lose, on average, 18-25 pounds and men, 25-35 pounds, according to individual metabolism.

Keep in mind, during a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, metabolism, and heart! The metabolism slows so much that dieters regain weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.

With HCG, there is more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches around the hardest to lose areas – stomach, thighs and buttocks. The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.

One patient, Richard, says, “What I like about HCG, the reason I chose that method instead of the others, is I can eat real food as part of my lifestyle. I can eat out with clients and they wouldn’t know I was on a diet. While it is restricted calories, I have a strong sense of well-being, like my body is balancing itself out.”  Track Rich’s progress in blogs to come.

After your 40 day cycle of HCG is over, we put you on a 3 week maintenance program where we will teach you to slowly raise your caloric intake each week to meet your metabolism. Therefore, at the end of your HCG program you will know how to maintain your weight loss in your everyday life. Maintenance, for us, is the key to keeping the weight off long-term and is our ultimate goal for you.
