Medically Supervised Weight Loss in Tucson, Arizona
HCG for weight loss is not responsible medicine and you will never see it in our offices. HCG diets restrict you to 500 - 800 calories per day. Guess what - if you reduce your food intake that drastically you will lose weight with or without HCG!
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone produced during pregnancy. It is used by doctors to treat fertility problems. There have been many scientific studies done to determine if it is effective in weight loss. These studies have repeatedly shown that it is not any more effective than placebos. In other words it does not help. Of course there are self serving studies that come up with different results (hmm, I wonder why?) but for real medicine and real science those are disregarded.
A quality weight loss program will teach you how to change your lifestyle in healthy ways. You will then be able to lose the weight and keep it off for the long term.
Below are some links (that open in a new window) to provide more information. Please visit them if you are considering trying an HCG diet. Be fully informed.
