hCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is a natural hormone in your body and is most commonly used in pregnancy because it helps provide nourishment to the growing fetus when the mother consumes less food due to nausea. hCG allows the body to use stored fat in place of the nutrition that was lost when the mother consumed less.
An hCG weight loss program enables adults to maintain a low-calorie diet for three to six weeks while using hCG. The hCG tricks the brain into thinking more food was consumed, while promoting the burning of stored fat. Adults can lose between one-quarter to one-half pound a day with the hCG Diet. They follow specific guidelines as to what they can and cannot eat during this time.
Body Blu offers: a 3-week or a 6-week long program to suite your weight loss needs. Each program includes:
To begin the hCG weight loss program a focused initial consult of $150 is needed to review your medical history, understand your bodies weight loss needs and challenges, and help you determine which program length is right for you.
After the initial consult your program will begin with a custom diet and daily hCG injections. We will take you through each step of program and set you up with a plan to maintain your weight loss goals.
