The HCG Diet Protocol was first introduced by doctor ATW Simeons, as a rapid fat loss program for individuals who have a significant amount of abnormal fat to lose. Dr. Simeons realized that he could administer HCG Injections to his clients while they followed a very low calorie diet, and they didn't experience many of the regular side-effects associated with low calorie dieting. In recent years, it has been discovered that HCG helps to guard against muscle wasting during a low calorie diet, and minimizes the metabolic downshift that normally happens when an individual diets.
By using HCG Shots in conjunction with a very low calorie diet, HCG Diet Patients are able to lose weight quickly, and keep it off with the right coaching. Recently, Infuze medical merged with Sculpt Tri-Cities, and we are now known as Ikon Wellness. We still offer the HCG Diet in Kennewick at Ikon Wellness.
HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone that is produced during pregnancy. When HCG is administered through injections, it mimics other specific hormones, and affects the hormone axis in overweight individuals in a positive way.
Our bodies have a control system designed to regulate body weight. At the core of this system is a part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The Hypothalamus receives signals from the body through the use of hormones to help determine if weight loss or weight gain is necessary. The Hypothalamus has many functions, including:
Eating habits and activity levels have changed dramatically over the last 50 years. The availability and ease of calorie dense foods with few nutrients is a key factor, but sedentary lifestyles are also playing a huge role. The human body is designed to store extra calories in preparation for possible calorie famine. Once a person is overweight or obese, additional problems often arise, and weight loss becomes considerably difficult. At this point, the bodies regulatory mechanism is often not working as it should, and the signal to eat won’t turn off.
Our bodies are constantly trying to maintain a balance. This balance is called homeostasis. A lot of individuals find that when they try to lose weight, their body often returns back to where it started within a short period of time. Fortunately, homeostasis can be overcome, and anyone can lose weight permanently. The HCG Diet can help you do just that. Following the HCG Diet Protocol helps to release fat reserves while maintaining lean body mass.
