HCG Diet (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)

Réviance® Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center in San Jose, California has a popular, new diet option for men and women looking to rid their body of the excess fat that rests on the hips, thighs, arms and abdomen. The HCG diet, or human chorionic gonadotropin, uses the HCG hormone which drains fat cells and turns them into positive energy.

HCG was discovered in pregnant women, as it is produced to nourish and protect the fetus by taking the reserved fat storage and turns it into nourishment for the placenta.

At Réviance® in San Jose, men and women have the opportunity to use this theory with the HCG diet. There are three phases to the HCG diet for our San Jose patients:

  • Phase 1 is when the patient eats as much as they wish for two days prior to help build up the fat reserves and get the HCG circulating throughout your body
  • Phase 2 begins a 500-calorie a day diet consisting of fruit and vegetables and 2 servings of protein while also taking the HCG hormone. Our San Jose patients see a weight loss of 1-2 pounds, and the length of this phase is until you reach your goal weight
  • Phase 3 starts with the last two days of your 500-calorie a day diet, while eliminating the HCG supplements so that it can begin to leave your body. You must now maintain the results from phase 2 by continuing without sugars and starch and living a healthy life

Our San Jose HCG patients have been thrilled with the incredible results of this diet because their new healthy lifestyle allows them to keep the weight off without losing the important muscle that many diets do. In addition, over time the body begins to no longer crave sugars as it adjusts.

The HCG diet has numerous benefits but a huge plus is that it is inexpensive to maintain. As long as you maintain the diet, you will not have to pay for costly supplements or meal plans. This diet is totally maintainable from home.

San Jose’s Réviance® is eager to meet with you to discuss your goals and assess if the HCG diet is right for you. This could leave to a slender figure that no longer carries the unwanted fat on your abdomen, thighs, or arms. You will have more energy and experience weight loss with the HCG diet.
