HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is administered by injection to allow your hypothalamus to function at a higher rate. This allows you to burn between 2500-4000 calories per day without hunger, loss of energy, or need for exercise. During the program, patients maintain a daily intake of 500 calories. On average, patients lose between 1-2 ½ lbs. per day. HCG allows patients to lose more fat tissue directly, causing visible contouring of the body while resetting the hypothalamus. This program is designed for long lasting results.
