HCG Diet

Revitalize your weight loss approach with our HCG diet

Have you been struggling to find a good way to lose weight and keep it off? Of course you’re not alone and there are a LOT of different approaches out there….some effective….and some not so effective.

At Strella, we recognize that no single solution is ideal for every BODY, but we also recognize that if you eat fewer calories than you use, then you will lose weight. The tricks then become figuring out how best to tolerate a lower calorie diet, what foods and how much of them you should eat, and how to maintain the benefits of quick weight loss over time without rebound weight gain.

That’s where medicaly-supervised weight loss with HCG comes in. HCG, is a pro-hormone that suppresses appetite and helps the body burn fat naturally – particularly subcutaneous fat which represents the vast majority of our total fat.

Medically-supervised very low calorie diets (VLCDs) supported HCG supplements were first pioneered back in the 1950s. Since then there have been many patients losing a lot of weight and many of our patients lose about a pound a day. And while this area has not been well studied in clinical trials and the use of HCG in weight loss has never been evaluated or approved by the FDA, studies have shown that patients utlizing pharmaceutically-prepared HCG (not the products you can get at the supermarket) are generally more able to successfully tolerate VLCDs and achieve significant weight reduction. As a result, it is not uncommon for our patients to lose about a pound per day during their weight loss phase on the program.

There’s a reason this approach has been featured on hundreds of TV shows – most notably Dr. Oz, and Oprah. HCG suppresses your appetite and it helps your body to burn fat. In addition, and perhaps most importantly – it helps to reset appetite controls in your brain that will contribute to a potential for sustained weight reduction over time.

There’s never been a better time or an easier way to get started. Give us a call and one of our specialists will help enroll you into medically-supervised weight loss with HCG right here at Strella!

Medically supervised diets using pharmaceutically prepared HCG at Strella is structured to work with your hypothalamus. That’s the part of your brain that controls metabolic functions and hunger. Although HCG alone will not result in weight loss, the combination of the metabolic effects of HCG combined with a medically-supervised very low calorie diet has been shown to achieve significant and sustained weight loss.
Pairing the HCG with the low calorie diet will help prevent you from feeling hungry on the program as the HCG will stimulate the release of fat stores that your body will use for energy.
Weight loss is usually greatest the first month and slows down, but does not stop. Most of our patients see inches being lost continuously while on the program
Upon completion of the pharmaceutically-prepared HCG-supplemented phase of the program is completed, we will provide you with specific instructions and monitor you through a maintenance period. Once that is complete, it is typical for patients to have a smaller appetite, more energy, and healthier lifestyle that results in generally sustained weight loss.
The majority of otherwise healthy, but overweight men and women can be considered optimal patients for the use of HCG diet for weight loss. It is recommended that individuals consult a physician for a consultation prior to starting the diet.
