BY NOW YOU'VE PROBABLY HEARD
The HCG Diet, an extreme diet that involves injections of HCG (human chorion gonadotropin). HCG does not make you lose weight-the diet makes you lose weight! However, the HCG injections change how you lose weight!
Alison Wellness Clinic is excited to announce that we are now offering Dr. Emma’s HCG Weight Loss Program as seen on the Dr. Oz show.
Dr. Emma’s New HCG Diet Protocol By Sheri L. Emma, MD Creator of Dr. Emma’s HCG Protocol
HCG INJECTIONS KEEP YOU FROM LOSING MUSCLE
By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building), which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
WHY DOES THAT MATTER?
During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieters regain weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost. In fact, there is more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches and size of clothing. The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.
Your HCG diet will be customized based on your current weight, age, sex and weight loss goals. Our team will generate your diet plan and counsel you on the details of the program and get you started on the diet. You will come in weekly for weigh-ins and to evaluate your progress.
