What is the HCG diet all about?

There are so many options out there when it comes to losing weight and improving diet. It can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to researching which ones actually yield the best results. Dr. Fiona Wright of Skin MD and Beyond encourages patients to instead consider treatments that have been studied to provide results and are monitored by a medical professional for safety and effectiveness. For many patients who visit our Plano, TX area practice, the HCG diet is often a wonderful solution. 

Understanding how the HCG diet works 

HCG is an acronym that stands for “human chorionic gonadotropic hormone.” This hormone is naturally present in the placenta when a woman is pregnant. The hormone tells the body when to provide more progesterone to aid in the growth and development of the fetus. It ensures both mom and baby are getting necessary nutrients. When using HCG in weight loss, it tricks the body into believing there is a pregnancy. It acts as both an appetite depressant and a fat reducer. HCG works by reducing appetite to jumpstart the use of fat to obtain calories, making the HCG believe that the body is not getting the nutrients needed. This, in turn, burns fat. 

How is HCG administered? 

Dr. Fiona Wright may administer HCG in various ways, including nasal sprays, injections, and supplements. It is done with the supervision of a professional, and should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet high in fruits and vegetables. Following a nutritious diet while using HCG can provide fast and effective results, and ensure significant weight loss quickly and easily!
