Can hCG Injections Jump-Start My Weight Loss Efforts?

If you’re overweight or obese, you’ve likely tried many diets and weight loss plans to help you get to a healthier size. It’s not that you don’t want to lose weight: You just haven’t found a plan that works for you no matter how dedicated you are to the protocol.

At Harmony Clinics, we help men and women in the Wichita Falls, Texas, area reach a healthier size with customized counseling in nutrition, your diet, exercise, and behavior modification. 

Plus, coming to a medical clinic for weight loss support means that any underlying conditions you have that are exacerbating your weight problems, such as thyroid issues or hormone imbalances, can be treated, too.

In many cases, however, we find that your body just needs a little help in releasing the excess pounds. This is where hCG injections come in. They can help you lose weight quickly and effectively by boosting your metabolism and suppressing your appetite.

Health problems of being overweight

Losing weight isn’t just a matter of aesthetics and vanity. If you carry a lot of excess pounds, you’re at increased risk for a number of serious health concerns. Many of these concerns can be reduced and chronic conditions eliminated just by losing excess fat.

Issues that are caused or exacerbated by being overweight include:

These problems can lead to life-threatening complications and seriously interfere with your quality of life. Weight loss helps restore your energy and health so you can enjoy a fulfilling quality of life.

Why hCG?

The hCG hormone, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is produced by pregnant women. Injections of hCG, when combined with a low-calorie diet, speed up weight loss and suppress your appetite. You aren’t hungry, and you benefit from the metabolic boost due to the injections. This helps you stick to your low-calorie plan without compromising health or satisfaction.

HCG proved its ability to help people lose weight in the 1950s. It successfully helped patients lose excess fat, especially in trouble areas such as the stomach, thighs, upper arms, and buttocks.

You administer the injections yourself, into the muscle of the thigh, and follow a prescribed diet plan. Usually, you follow a 23-day or 40-day regimen; you can repeat the HCG plan to lose additional weight following your first plan after taking a short break so you don’t become resistant to the effects of hCG.

The eating plan

On your hCG injection plan, we recommend you spend your calories wisely. Choose fresh fruit, lean proteins — such as white-meat chicken or white fish — and fresh vegetables. You may also have very small servings of whole grains.

We can help you develop a shopping list and menu plan so you get optimal nutrients from the foods you select.

Harmony Clinics offers other products and medications to help with your weight loss, too. If you find that hCG isn’t right for you, ask about other options such as phentermine and metabolic boosters. 

We want to help you drop weight and achieve a healthy size. If you’re ready to start your weight loss journey, contact us at Harmony Clinics to set up a one-on-one consultation today. You can call us, send us a message here on our website, or request an appointment using our online booking tool.
