FAQ - HCG for Rapid Weight Loss


     HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)

HCG is a well-researched and widely used polypeptide for rapid weight loss.  By injecting this polypeptide, one will see the benefits of fat stores opening up and releasing freely into the body for energy, appetite control and rapid and effective fat loss with optimal body contouring. By virtue of the fact that people are liberating stored fat, they no longer have to ingest large amounts of food calories, as the hormone is helping the body provide those energy "calories," internally. Appetite is suppressed, mood is up, energy is high and life feels good!  

30+ pounds to lose? We recommend cycles of HCG until you reach your goals and transition into a ketogenic lifestyle. Call to make an appointment for HCG consult today! 

What is HCG?

HCG is a well-researched and widely used polypeptide hormone for rapid weight loss.  HCG can be extracted and compounded to be injected into both men and women. At Radiance Float + Wellness, we work with highly-regulated, sterile compounding pharmacies only available to physicians to provide you with the purest compounds for maximum effects.

How does HCG work?

HCG injections are used to unlock or open up the fat stores our bodies are programmed to  preserve, only to be used during times of severe famine. By virtue of the fact that HCG helps to liberate stored fat, you no longer have to ingest large amounts of food calories, as the hormone is helping the body provide those energy "calories," internally. Appetite is suppressed, mood is up, energy is high and life feels good!  

Where do you get your HCG?

What sort of nutrition plan needs to be followed?

When HCG is coupled with a nutritional program developed by the physicians at Radiance Float + Wellness, one can expect a 20- to 30-pound weight loss in 40 days. Our HCG diet program is not like the highly-restrictive 500-calorie diet Dr. Simeone developed in the 1950’s. Although Dr. Simeone was ahead of his time, we now know that all calories are not the same, and we better understand ketosis and the benefit that a ketogenic diet has on the brain and body.

How much does it cost?

Price: 2 equal payments of $449 (total $898) - billed the day of evaluation and on the second meeting. Price includes education and all supplies needed for a 43-day course of HCG.  Includes HCG, B12, Biotin shots, and Reboot Kit with injection supplies. You agree to keep all injectables away from light and stored in the refrigerator when not in use.

What is the modified diet plan?

Our program is based on ketogenic diet principles: the time that you are on the self-injections (40-day cycles), you avoid dietary fat and consume moderate protein and vegetables for a total daily calorie intake based on each individual's basal metabolic rate (BMR), which will be calculated for you. Between cycles, (4-6 weeks of no injections to avoid tolerance) we recommend to continue to follow a ketogenic diet, adding in dietary fat, and exogenous ketones for an added boost!

Is there anything else I can do to speed up weight loss?

Complementing the injection and dietary program is the nutrient therapy provided at Radiance Float + Wellness.  As you can imagine, with a low-calorie diet, it becomes difficult to obtain all the nutrients we need from food.  We set up a program in which we administer weekly B12 injections and weekly intramuscular injections of Biotin (which is crucial to sustain metabolism) during group check-ins with our medical staff.  While the scale can be helpful for some, we follow body fat percentage and recommend taking measurements and pictures for yourself to see an amazing transformation in record time!

Additional nutrient boosts are available with IV nutrient therapy. We recommend an IV weekly such as the “Lipo-Burn” or “The Master,” which are formulated with amino acids and vitamins and minerals that act as cofactors for multiple reactions in the body; these will jumpstart metabolism and hone in on fat loss.

        For more aggressive treatments, different peptide therapies can be cycled for extra targeted benefits, i.e., muscle growth, deeper sleep, abdominal fat, anti-aging, performance enhancement and more. Ask us about our peptide therapies!

What should I do if I have to lose 30+ pounds?

30+ pounds to lose? 

(1).Start a moderate exerciose program like brisk walking for 30' at least 5 days a week.

(2).We recommend cycles of HCG until you reach your goals and transition into a ketogenic lifestyle. To avoid developing tolerance to HCG, we recommend daily morning subcutaneous (SC) injection of HCG for 6 days and having the 7th day off each week. The off-day should always be the same (i.e., every Wednesday), and we will provide a SC syringe of B12 for extra energy, to boost metabolism, to improve immunity and to help the routine. In total there will be 36 shots of HCG and 6 shots of methylB12, for a 42-day cycle in which dietary fat and carbs will be restricted.

(3). Follow the rcommended diet.A list of foods with a high Protein/Fat (P/F) content will be provided.  You will have an evaluation with medical staff discussing fat loss goals, education about the HCG protocol and method of self-injection

Do I need any lab work?

Yes.  A lab slip will be given recommending a set of baseline labs (CBC, Chem, Cholesterol, Thyroid panel, Uric Acid level, ESR, serum Iodine, HbA1c, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin D) that you can take to any lab of your choice and use insurance, should you choose to.  

Im not sure if I can do this?

It’s only 40 days!  We can help with weekly measurements and provide coaching, strategies and recipes for success! You will  leave with supplies for daily self-injection of HCG at home. The vial must be protected from light and remain refrigerated.  Avoid excessive shaking or movement as this can destroy the polypeptide.

 More on HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)

HCG injections are used to unlock or open up the fat stores our bodies are programmed to preserve, only to be used during times of severe famine. As you can imagine, with 24-hour drive-thrus and grocery stores, the risk of famine in our immediate future is very low and our bodies will not release the storage of this fat, thus perpetuating the morbidity and mortality associated with obesity.  

The ONLY natural time this evolutionary code can be overridden is during pregnancy. During the miracle of pregnancy, the placenta secretes HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) which is the code that maternal bodies need to support their developing fetus. With HCG, the mother’s fat stores are unlocked and “allowed” to be freely mobilized to be used as energy to support the tremendous energy consumption and work required to create human life!  Most scientists agree that it would be physiologically impossible to carry a fetus to term without the extra energy mobilized and supplied by maternal fat stores under the command of HCG. Some estimates report that the equivalent of 4,000-5,000 fat calories daily are consumed in producing a fetus, imagine having a daily intake of a 5000 calorie diet!! Its HCG that helps mothers-to-be out, providing the energy required for the miracle of life.

Scientists discovered the power and protection of HCG after analyzing and discovering that even malnourished, impoverished mothers with poor oral intake in developing countries were able to give birth to normal-sized babies. This led to the discovery of HCG for weight loss.

Since the only action of this polypeptide at doses used for weight loss (low dose) is for releasing stored fat-energy, there are virtually no side effects. It is not a hormone that has other end-organ effects. It can be used in men (who were bathed in this substance while in utero), and will not have any feminizing effects (no gynecomastia).
